Back to Reality

I left behind an incredible summer in Athens, Georgia on Monday.  What a fantastic adventure.  I never thought I would learn so much in one summer.

Athens was lovely, UGA’s campus was great, and the people I met and worked with were beyond beautiful.

The last week of camp was bittersweet, but here are some random pictures and highlights:

I told you that being asked to Prom first term was one of my summer highlights–And I’m such a lucky girl that I got asked again 🙂 But this time it was by our office coordinator and my Athens sister, Betsy.  The flowers were made from cardstock and there is a stamped card from Jittery Joes, my favorite Athens coffee shop.

Then we had Prom.  Aren’t these ladies beautiful?

Highlight of Prom? When the serenading 4th years serenaded Bailee and I.

Everyone got a little stir crazy…and just regular crazy the last week of camp.  Why do you ask?  Here are 4 reasons I captured:

1) Hunter and Carson planked on the 2nd floor balcony several times.

2) Bailee and I danced wayyyy too much…In the residential hall, in sprinklers at 2AM, and in sketchy bars/clubs. (I miss that girl a lot…)

3) Lee B went dumpster diving…and he was great at it.

4) The staff put away about 30, 000 calories in a one-hour period.

After leaving Athens I made a quick trip to Charleston, South Carolina.  I spent a lot of time on the beach and eating.

One restaurant where I ate was Magnolia’s.  Its claim to fame? Oprah’s favorite restaurant.  Swag.

I just thought this was funny:

Do you think they did this on purpose?

Anyways, Charleston was lovely, but I was ready to be home after 1604 miles and 63 days on this journey.

Hmmm…and nothing says happiness like eating lunch at Sub Station II with the New Student Programs Crew during a campus-wide lockdown because of an alleged gunman walking around campus.

I’m so glad to be home, but I miss a few people like crazy.

My next adventure?  Two weeks of Hokie Camp starting on Sunday.  I’m P-U-M-P-E-D PUMPED.  Stay tuned because camp life is never boring and I always have a camera with me.
