Halloween, Boston Strong, and Shaving My Beard

Whew! What a week!

Coming off an awesome Halloween weekend with my buddies and diving right into the World Series Championship…this week went by at a maddening rate! As for Halloween, I decided to go as the Quail Man from a 90s classic television show ‘Doug.’ I had a blast hanging out with friends, but then before I knew it….I was back on the grind. I’ve been working extra hours lately because I fell behind on my internship hours because baseball practice was cutting into it. (Not complaining at all though!) But I’m still loving my internship!

I just finished witnessing history. I sat on the couch with fellow Ambassador Dylan, and then I exploded off the couch with a combination of shouts, fist pumps, and high fives with my roommate when my Boston Red Sox won the World Series Championship! I’m a Boston native, and a die hard Red Sox fan. It’s really nice to watch my Boston team win a world championship in Yankee territory!

During the playoff run by the Red Sox, I decided to join the “Fear the Beard” crew–almost all members of the Red Sox grew out their beards and all. So I grew mine out, and it got to a considerable length, but nothing like this beard by the Sox first baseman Mike Napoli.

So I have to shave the beard, and start working on my mustache!

Until then, have a great week!

Flamingo out.
