I'm looking forward to leaving this place and getting into a groove with this job, but I'm going to miss the friends I've made here too! Hopefully we'll all be together for Phase 2! It's been a long 2 weeks, but now it seems as if the time has flown by. I'm so excited to get home and spend my one day there, as lame as that is, it'll be great to at least have that time! I'm eating the rest of this fantastic fruit basket I got from home while packing and I'm definitely going to catch the new episode of the Office tonight! Be home soon!

I think I've been in Columbia, Maryland long enough to judge it :-) Its location is ideal for corporations and chains, which is probably why that's all that is here. Its close proximity to DC and Baltimore and Annapolis is what makes it cool. I've been driving to work/restaurants for 2 weeks and I still can't figure out where I'm going half the time because everything is a highway that winds around in a circle! Besides Pub Dog, I've only been to chain restaurants here. The one chain restaurant experience that stands out was Carrabba's Italian Grill. I had never heard of it before (we don't get them up North apparently) and so mistook the name for Chupacabra...but the place doesn't serve bigfoots, just lots of fantastic food! Wine Wednesdays have been good! If you get to the one in Columbia, ask for Star, she's fantastic :-) Also, our Outback experience was quite fantastic. Steve the bartender made us his own shot concoction and kept us company during our meal. So maybe I should say, Columbia isn't too great, but the people so far have been fantastic.
