What’s up y’all?!? Abby May here. Coming to you (not live) from the good old town of Baldwinsville, New York.
My summer so far has been absolutely jam packed. It’s been flying by, as it always does. As much as I love taking a break from school work and enjoying the warm weather, I most definitely miss my GSUVB fam like crazy. Ya’ll bring such a bright light into my life that I could not be more grateful for. And guess what??? ONLY 26 MORE DAYS TIL MOVE IN DAY!!!! I cannot wait to get back in the gym with you all and to start getting to know all of you incoming froshies 🙂
Sooooo here’s a little break down of my 2019 summer…
Swift Current, Saskatchewan
To kick off the summer, I took a week and a half trip to my boyfriend’s hometown in Canada. Luckily, we flew (otherwise it would have been a 30 hour drive). Although I had an idea of what his town was like, I quickly found out it is very different than central New York. Everything is flat, there are no trees, it’s very windy, and it’s quite dusty. Outside the village, you actually can see for miles and miles (no exaggeration whatsoever). It is the definition of a rural small town, with almost all its land used for farming. Most people I know wouldn’t be too excited about a place like this, but I thought it was AWESOME. Even though it wasn’t what I was used to, I had the most amazing experience.

I got to meet most of his friends and family, meeting a new person pretty much every day. We got to explore his town on his motorcycle (I was a tad scared), went gopher hunting (that was SO cool), went to a professional bull riding show (that was NUTS), and went fishing at the lake where his cabin is. He also taught me to drive standard, which was interesting… lol. I may have stalled it once or twice. We went on so many fun adventures that were all new experiences for me.
Caught me a fishy and some gophers 🙂
That trip was such a great experience for me. I’ve never really traveled anywhere except up and down the east coast and right over the border in Ontario, Canada. I loved the small town feel, where everybody knows everybody, and life seems to be just a bit slower paced.
Baldwinsville, New York
Back in B’ville, I’ve been pretty busy. For the second summer in a row, I work at a golf course serving food and beverages to golfers, either in the snack shack or on the beverage cart. I also started a new job this summer at a nursing home. This job is part of my preparation for applying to PA school. I work both jobs about 3 days a week, so this has definitely been my busiest summer work-wise.
And now to the fun stuff… I’ve gone to four country concerts this summer, and have one or two more to go. It is my absolute favorite thing to do this time of year. I’ve also been going out on my boat to fish, tube, water ski, or to just float and relax. I’ve been making sure to get together with my home friends whenever I can, which is definitely one of the best parts of summer vacation. It seems to get harder and harder to make plans as we get older, so I really cherish the time I have with them.

So that’s just a tid bit of my summer here in the ‘ville. It’s been awesome so far, but I’ve been itching to get back to school. I’m looking forward to having an amazing last year at Geneseo, but extremely sad that’s all I got left. That being said, I am giving y’all all I got this fall. I AM READY TO GO BOYS. I’m so excited to see how much we can accomplish together, considering we’ve been absolutely KILLING IT lately.
Let’s bring home the chip fellas.
Keep working hard and make the most of the rest of your summer! See you all soon!!!! 🙂
