The Redcoats are coming!

This past weekend I traveled to Boston, MA for a little fun. It was amazing, to say the least. Quincy market was filled with wonderful places to eat- if you wanted it, they had it. We made it to THE TOMB, which is like an Indiana Jones adventure for those who are brave enough to face the task. We had a serious test of wit, strength and bravery. We would not have made it through if it were not for the help of our new friend Galin (an excitable young gentleman who wore a "hip pack"). We got to see the big St. Paddy's day parade and that was spectacular. My favorite part- some kid who tried to pick up every sucker that was thrown into the street. He had to have about 60. Hunter and Cassie were gracious hosts and our experience would not have been quite as good if it were not for them. Fenway might have been my favorite part of Boston (next to the tomb, of course), I sat in the oldest seat in all of baseball.

The history of the city is wonderful while mixed with the exciting atmosphere of a place filled with fun people. I have heard all my life about how rude northerners are, that was not my experience. Everyone I came accross was more than willing to help me with whatever I needed.
It was a great trip.

So, I went swimming today. In FEBRUARY! It was ridiculous, it was cold, but, like a lot of things in my life, I did it because it's a great story. I don't know what it is about me, maybe it's that I really enjoy being the center of attention, but I tend to do things that don't make sense, just because I know they'll be fun to talk about.
Talked to Shannon today, it's always good to talk to good friends. Also got in touch with Kristen and it sounds like she's doing as well as can be expected after surgery so, that's excellent news. Got to hang out with my Aunt and Uncle, went to dinner and then schooled them on the Wii (except bowling... they're exceptional). We're going to do real bowling tomorrow which is pretty exciting. They used to bowl in leagues and the whole 9 so I'm hoping I don't get slaughtered. (I'm very competitive and DO NOT like to lose).
Still waiting on recs for my application to Emory to be complete. I'm a slacker about following up but I really need those in.
Well, it's late. I watched some more of The Soprano's tonight. It really is as good as everyone has made it out to be. I don't know what I'm going to do without it this week... maybe I can borrow it...?

Anyway, that's all for now.

My name is Samantha Lewis and I do ridiculous things just for the story.
