For those of you who don’t know, I will be going to Spain this summer. Just thought you’d all like to see another student’s perspective on phrases.

I promise, a bowling trip is coming soon!

Welcome to summer!

Hello all. I’m sorry for my absence these past few months; I’ve been busy with school and work. However, school is now over so I should have more time to make updates.

I plan to venture down the road to DiDonato’s Bowling Center. They recently added 3-D Galactic Golf to the alley so I will be sure to see what that is all about.

I also want to take a trip to the Playdrome in Cherry Hill to see if they installed their rock climbing wall yet.

Lastly, I will definitely make a big trip to Pinsetter Bar & Bowl. I have been dying to go there ever since my high school bowling team went there in 2006. I never got the chance to visit last fall semester.

Hopefully I will be updating this a lot more since it is summertime. In the meantime, happy bowling!

On a side note, I will be studying in Spain for one month at the end of this summer. I will be sure to investigate what the bowling atmosphere is like abroad if there is one.

I know this isn’t bowling related, but this is a recent story for my News Reporting 1 class that has been getting a lot of attention. I’d like to share it with you, too.

Bowling with my best friend at DiDonato’s Bowling Center

I went bowling with my best friend, Ellen DeStefano, last night at DiDonato’s Bowling Center.  Sunday nights at DiDonato’s are $2.50 game nights and $1.25 for shoes.  I realize I tend to go on Sunday nights often, but it is the cheapest option for me, and the alley is usually quiet and not crowded.

It was the first time that I have seen her in some time.  We bowled three games each, and we caught each other up on everything that had happened lately.  We talked about everything ranging from school and boys to how cool it was finally being 20 years old.

I did not bowl my best three games; I had a 122, a 129, and a 132 which averaged out to a 127.  This looks like my average from my early high school varsity years.  At least they were somewhat consistent, and when I have the time and money to go bowling more often, my average should go back up to what it is normally.

Ellen had bowled much worse than I did; we forgot to write her scores.  However, I do remember that she averaged less than 100.

Overall, we had a great time at the bowling alley last night.  We spent almost four hours bowling, talking, and eating.  It was nice to just enjoy each others’ company doing something we both enjoy.

This is a slightly unrelated bowling post, but still relative.

Wordpress notifications expanded (please disregard my awful crop job done in Paint.)

I gained a new WordPress follower today. Died and Yet …  started following me, and it is an interesting blog. It is a combination of obituaries celebrating all the interesting feats people accomplished in their lives.

I received an e-mail notification for this follow, so I came over to WordPress to check it out. I also received a WordPress notification in the top right hand corner (kind of like the notifications you get on Google +).

I clicked on the notification on WordPress to expand the window, and at the bottom it says, “That is a total of 6 followers!” It was rather amusing, and I think it is kind of adorable. It definitely brought a smile to my face that WordPress is so excited about my followers. I am excited for my followers, too!

On another note, I apologize for the lack of activity on my blog lately. I am trying to keep up with it, however, it is slightly harder when I am not required to write a post for class each week.

I went bowling with my best friend tonight, so expect a post about that tomorrow afternoon. I have also been trying to write a post about bowling during an emotional time and the pros and cons of that. I am still working on a pros and cons list that I think would be beneficial for you.

Until tomorrow, I am off to bed. I appreciate all of your support!
