What Happens In Vegas…

One week ago I was in Vegas with Andrea and Andrew. I had never been to Vegas before this trip, so I honestly had no idea what to expect! I was nervous, because I don’t do well when I veer off of my normal routine, but I think I came back a little bit stronger and better, because I stepped out of my comfort zone! I figured I would give a quick recap of the trip here, in case anyone wants to know just how CRAZY it was!!

We landed in Vegas at 1:30 a.m. Vegas time, which was 4:30 a.m. Boston time. The time change really messed me up, both ways.

Friday was our first real day, and we went to Arizona to see the Grand Canyon! I loved it! It was beautiful!

Friday night we went to this crazy street called The Freemont, it was basically like Times Square meets Hampton Beach meets a club. It was all outside. People were zip lining over our heads, bands were playing, and everyone was just having a good time.

Saturday we slept in until 11 am, we really needed that. After we went out to the Flamingo Hotel because I love flamingo’s and they had a wildlife habitat of flamingos! We walked the Linq and then Andrew and Andrea had to go get ready for Lady Gaga at her residency at the Park MGM.

I stayed in the Air B’N’B while they went to Lady Gaga and met up with them afterwards to go on the High Roller, the biggest Observation Wheel in the world! It had 360 Degree views of Vegas.

Then we got nachos because its it’s one am in Vegas and you want Nachos, you can get nachos.

The next day was Sunday, SUPERBOWL DAY!! Now, if you don’t know me, you wouldn’t know, but the Super Bowl is one of my favorite days! But, we were in Vegas, so we had to do some research to really see where we could watch, and where wasn’t going to be too much money, because most places were charging 300-400 dollars to get in! But we found this awesome place to watch it right near the Freemont, called the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center. It was free to get in, but the food and drinks you had to pay for! It was like a giant watch party tailgate!

We had the best time meeting other Patriots fans and cheering so loudly! Fun fact, I even got interviewed by the local news when I was there!

But Andrew and Andrea had Lady Gaga on Sunday night too, so they were changing and getting ready in the 4th quarter, and I was still cheering them on! They stayed to watch them win and then left right after, but I stayed with all the Patriots fans that I met!

We met up again after they went to the show, and walked around the casinos and saw the fountains at the Bellagio and eventually went to bed around 2.

Monday was our last day. I think 4 days in Vegas is the perfect amount of time. We saw enough, we had enough fun, and I think we were all ready to go back home and get back to reality. Vegas is truly un-like anywhere else I have ever been, honestly I can’t describe it, it’s just one giant party all the time on the Strip, but if you go a little off the strip, it’s quite poor.

Monday we had to carry our suitcases with us all day since our flight wasn’t until 9:50 that night. The Venetian was beautiful!

We had fun taking pictures with the Vegas sign! We even saw someone taking their wedding photos there!

The whole trip was so fun, I am so glad that we decided to go and just have a fun weekend. I never do spur of the moment things, and this trip wasn’t spur of the moment, but what we did while we were there was super un-planned, but I think that made it even better! I hope I have many many more adventures with Andrea and Andrew for the rest of my life!!

Then, we landed at 6 am on Tuesday morning, and went to the Patriots Parade! What a great way to ease myself back in to Boston!

Goodbye 2018, Hello 2019

It’s hard to believe that 2018 is almost over, it seems like just yesterday it was the end of 2017, and now here we are, the end of 2018. I don’t like endings or beginnings, maybe that’s why I hate the end of the year. I actually love the middle of things, I love a good Wednesday. I really don’t like to see things end, or start. But, nevertheless, here we are, so I figured I’d give a little recap of my year, mostly for me, I won’t have any hard feelings if you never read this.

In January, I traveled to Mont Tremblant, Canada with my brother and Dad to go skiing. I love skiing on new mountains and this was a great way to kick off the new year!

Also in January, I started my internship at Channel 7 WHDH, as an assignment desk intern.

In March, I went to Gulfport Mississippi to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity with my school’s Alternative Spring Break program! (BEST WEEK EVER) I have so many other blog post’s about this week, it was just that good!

I turned 21 in March, and celebrated with my best friends!

In May, I finished junior year of college and resumed my summer position of working at Target! Hello 6 a.m. shifts!

I went to Philadelphia right before July 4th, which was super fun!

I hiked Mount Washington!

The end of July was sad, when I crowned my successor, and am now forever a has been! Thank you National American Miss!

I went to Martha’s Vineyard in August, and while I was there, I got the call that I would be interning at Channel 4 WBZ for fall semester!

I started senior year of college!!

I had the best long weekend in Wilmington, North Carolina at the One Tree Hill Convention in October!

I finished fall semester of college, and…

GOT A JOB!!

That’s right! I will be a script writer at Channel 7 WHDH starting on January 14th! I am excited that my 3 internships and lots of hard work helped me get this position! I know I will learn so much from this job!

Get ready world, I am coming for you this year, I’m graduating, I’m coming into the real world, and be warned, I’m going to make a splash!

I never make new year’s resolutions because no one ever sticks to them. But this year, I have one.

Here’s to happiness and love in 2019, for each and every person in the entire world!
