Where I stayed
I recently started my RN to BSN program. Fortunately for this travel bug, it's completely online. Nevertheless, I had to set aside time to complete my assignments. Steph had midterms to study for so it worked out perfectly!
I finally got to meet one of my long-time online friends in person for the first time. She happens to be dating a friend of Steph's (we actually had no idea of this small-world-type connection until today!) so meeting up was even more exciting! I was reminded how incredible social media is for making new friends in different places! Now I have another "real" (as opposed to online) friend out on the east coast.
We headed to Carmine's for some family style (and by family I mean one order of pasta can feed us for a week! ...ok maybe a couple days) Italian food. We started with an assortment of bread, then had an order of angel hair penne alla vodka (YUM!). Just as we were starting to fill up, they brought out the Porterhouse Contadina. Yeah. A shit-ton of MEAT! And yes, it was delicious!
After sharing tons of laughs and trying to figure out exactly how long my "new" friend and I have known each other, it was time to part ways. Steph and I headed back to the library so that I could race the clock to turn in the last part of my homework. The library closed at 1am, but we were wide awake! We found another study room in her building to study in before heading back to her room to fall asleep to episodes of Full House on DVD. It was a short day, but it was very enjoyable. After all, I'm on vacation! Relaxation is my first priority!
