Today marks my first-ever blog, so I thought I’d introduce myself! My name is Dan, and I’m a double major in ASL-English interpretation and psychology here at RIT. I’m a third-year student in the interpreting program and a second-year student in the psychology program. I know that’s a little confusing, but I’d be happy to explain more on a tour with you! In my free time I mentioned how I like to explore Rochester and the surrounding areas, so today I’d like to tell a story of one of those adventures, back when it was still warm!
Last semester, I got an apartment off campus and am now living with two close friends. With this newfound independence, I wanted to do something fun to celebrate, and what better time to do it than the fall! This takes me to my fun fact that I have about myself, that I’ve been in a hot air balloon. To celebrate, I decided to take my girlfriend on an adventure to a neighboring town near Rochester where they were hosting a hot air balloon festival. It was so much fun! We got to see all of the balloons go up into the sky, and even got to go on our own tethered balloon ride! I took several pictures, and I’d like to share some of them with you.
This was just one of the adventures that I’ve taken so far since coming to RIT. I’ve had many others that I’d like to talk about this semester, and many that I look forward to having in the future. What adventures have you been on? Anywhere that you want to go when you come to RIT?
