On the Road to New Jersey and Then Back to RIT!

Hello everyone,

First off, I want to apologize for not keeping my blogs up-to-date. I was busy with midterms and meetings. But anyways, it’s spring break now…whoot! Sadly, it’s coming to an end soon. For spring break I went to New Jersey with my best friend. We left last Saturday and we drove all the way to New Jersey. When we arrived it was beautiful to see the beach, sand and sun. But in the evening, the weather is similar to Rochester.

I spent my break watching different movies and reading two books. I haven’t yet finished any of the books. One evening I looked over at an aquarium and I saw a pink fish without one eye and a catfish swimming backward that barely touched the top surface of the water. It amazes me to see different animals.

I went to a Mexican grocery store and I was thrilled that they had one here in New Jersey. There I spoke with a lady in Spanish to find a coffee cup and comal redondo lamina (a metal round grill). I am very excited to bring these back to school and make homemade corn tortillas. She was so friendly and gave us two free conchas (Mexican pastry). It has sugar on top of the bread and goes really well with abuelita’s hot chocolate.

This weekend is going to be FUN. My best friend’s sister is planning a surprise birthday party for her sister and that sister is planning a bridal shower for another sister. Both sisters have no idea that they are planning each other a surprise party. It’s going to be a double party. All of the family and friends are going to be there. It’s going to be interesting to see both sisters reactions tomorrow.

Also I got amazing news! I got a summer internship in Texas and I look forward to the work this summer. There’s only six weeks left of school after we come back from spring break.

See you (blog readers) next time!
