What do you want to be when you grow up? It's an age-old question and one that, until recently, I still asked myself before, during, and after college. After much research and deep soul searching, I have finally realized my answer to this question. I am going to be a dance teacher....

From Katrina to Irene
View from hotel window
So, I get to NY safely and was scheduled to move into my apartment on Sunday, August 28. If you have been paying any attention to the weather on the east coast, all activity has ceased due to Hurricane Irene. It started as a Category 3 but as it is moving up the east coast, it is turning into a Category 1. The temperatures are cooler up north, which lessen the strength of the hurricane. Because this is one of the most popular seasons for tourists in New York, most of the New Yorkers are confused about this situation. They've never seen anything close down in this city. They haven't had any natural disasters this serious in 40 years. How fitting when I am scheduled to move, I bring a hurricane with me. My freshman year at JSU, I was getting ready for my first game as a Prancing J-Sette, and Hurricane Katrina made her debut. We still traveled to the first game, and the show still went on. So even with Irene on her way, I'm all smiles, just waiting for her to leave!
