oh wow - I made it back to my hotel room - phew!

That was a lot for me. I took bus to Sacred Heart University. There are so many things I don't know. Like where to stand for the bus, how not to get motion sickness (don't read - now I remember), where to exit the bus - you need to exit through the back door, not the front.....Many more things too. It makes me think of the freshman students at Cal Poly. The ones we were trying to recruit for SUSTAIN a couple months ago. No wonder they didn't pay any attention to us. There are way to many unknowns already, who would want to voluntarily do one more. I wonder how to overcome this next year?

Here's a picture of me waiting for the bus....well, my shadow!

The game was pretty horrific. They lost by 20 points! The girls must have been off due to traveling. There were at least 6 of us from Cal Poly. We sat together and were pretty loud. The worst part was that the coaches "talked" to them for one hour after the game. I guess they weren't happy :(

Sacred Heart is a beautiful place. Just like you imagine a New England University.
I was going to go out to dinner tonight, but this area around my hotel is kind of like downtown LA on a weekend - deserted - not at all like downtown San Francisco. I also have lots of grading. so I guess I will order room service (I love room service).

Tomorrow I am off to NYC.

Thanks for reading this. Knowing at least someone is reading helps me keep connected.



  1. Erica, again,

    that sucks about the game. but at least you got to go, and there were other people there! at least you didnt have to sit through the massacre alone haha.
    i cant believe they were yelled at for an HOUR thats crazy. sucks for the girls

    public transportation can definitely be confusing when you first start using it. especially because you see so many people breezing through. i always feel bad for the tourists that look really confused on the bus, i try to help when i can.
    but either way, you did it! using public transportation is one of the hardest, most stressful things about traveling alone in my experience

    take lots of pictures when your in New York. i want to see them!

  2. Erica, I wish you were here. We have to plan a trip this summer to celebrate graduation from Law School. what do you say?

  3. hi liz, i'm reading your blog too. perhaps i am even eating breakfast with you while you think you're alone. i have noticed this too about people who are "together." they are mostly staring off in space, not really interacting with one another. funny.
