Chapter III: I Solemnly Swear Iím Up To No Good
Letís clarify something, while Iím living in Burlington for the summer, TA is in St. Albans VT, which is about 30 miles north of Burlington, about 15 miles south of Canada (Yes, Iím up there). So my daily commute to and from is roughly 60 miles.
Monday-Friday follows a general routine:
6:45 AM: ďWakin up in the morning gotta be freshĒ
7:15 AM: Yes keys, turn to start
7:45 AM: Clock-in

5:00 PM: Itís fun to stay at the Y.M.C.A.
7:00 PM: Epic Meal Time
11:00 PM: Bedtime with Hot

Then, there is

Not appealing either? Try touring Ben and Jerryís or Shelburne Farms.
Still nothing? How about hiking in the
No? Well then just Google it.
If I had decided to stay in MA this summer, I would have missed out on all of these amazing opportunities. I most likely would have been bored doing the same things day in and day out. So no, Iím not lonely and Iím not bored.
ďIím out there, Jerry and Iím lovin every minute of it!Ē
