Day Twelve

Lakeside Ave. 

I want to start this post by once again thanking my sponsors of this once-in-a-lifetime journey. I encourage you to check out and support each and every one of them. Of course, the same goes to all the individuals supporting me from near and afar.

This week, I was able to take care of some crucial “behind the scenes” tasks. I know it’s not very interesting, but as I continue to prepare for my impending departure there are things that need checked off the list. For instance, I was able to find someone to take over the lease on my car. It turned out my Aunt was in the market for a new vehicle, so I couldn’t be more grateful that she decided to take the Jetta off my hands. I also managed to find some halfway decent health insurance, but I’ll save that depressing discussion for another post.

This weekend, I’ll be checking off another necessity as I start moving my belongings into a storage unit. I had to do it before when I went to Orlando for an internship, so it’s nothing new to me. However, I’m starting to remember how weird it feels to lock up your things for an extended period of time. You accumulate so many valuable memories over the years that it’s always a sad experience to leave them behind—especially in another state. On the flip-side, when I return it’s going to feel like Christmas all over again.

That’s about all I have to report. Honestly, I’m just having such a great time getting to know the Recess Creative team. If every agency I visit is as awesome as this one, I’m going to have a hard time leaving them behind. Tears may be shed; that’s all I’m saying.

On a final note, I encourage everyone to follow me on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. This blog is only one piece of a much larger puzzle. Oh and everyone should check out the band Honeybucket, which features Recess’s own, Adam Reifsnyder.

Until next time,
