I am writing this halfway into my flight across the country to begin my service term with AmeriCorps NCCC in Denver, CO. I am not surprised, nor should you be, that I did not update with any pre-departure info. To be honest, I was busy making sure I had everything done, saw my friends and family, and had fun! I am, of course, going to do my absolute best to bring you frequent updates from my adventures with NCCC (and I think it might be easier since there will be a lot to talk about, just like when I went to Italy).
As a quick update, alumni weekend was a lot of fun and I was SO happy to be able to tell everyone what I was going to be doing. I got to see some people at SMC that I’m friends with, and spend lots of time with my loves from the class of 2011. In true VT fashion, we spent our Sunday on the “Stowe free food tour” which includes Cold Hollow Cider Mill and the Cabot Cheese Annex. It was a delicious day, the weather was amazing, and I was glad to have some good Vermont fun before I left the state for a bit.
By the time you read this, I will have arrived on campus and been processed (or whatever) and probably be setting my room up to be a home away from home. I’ll leave you with some pictures from my alumni weekend adventures and the promise to be back soon!
