Valencia

I had a whole weekend free so Melissa and I thought we would try to explore a bit of Spain. The allure of a bit of warm weather and oranges brought us to Valencia. We had a great time there. It was warm enough to shed our coats for a couple of days and go see some of the things the city has to offer.

I was impressed by the nice beaches there and they had a couple of good museums. Melissa and I really enjoyed ourselves and plan on visiting again soon. Although we will probably go during a warmer month when Melissa can lay on the beach. It was a fairly touristy city. Not as bad as Barcelona, but you could easily get by there speaking only English as every waiter and receptionist spoke good English. Apparently it is a big tourist city with a look of UK tourists. Posted by Picasa

Finals Over, so I went Bowling

Finals are over! So I did what any American would do... I went bowling. I was very shocked last week when I found a bowling alley. After informing my classmates we soon made plans to go bowling at the next opportunity, which was the day we finished finals. So after a day with 6 hours of testing we proceeded to go directly to the bowling alley and paid way too much for a couple games of bowling. Melissa overcame her fear of bowling to join us as well (She ended up beating several of my classmates). It was a good way to relax after the finals.

Christmas is rapidly approaching which means I actually get to see my family for a little bit. My sister and parents are coming into town in less then two weeks.

The job search is continuing as well. I have an interview with Accenture, which would be good because I should be able to be in Seattle. Also have a bunch of interviews in January while I am at MIT.

Don't Run into Trees

A piece of advice, don't play American football on a field with trees in the center. It really hurts when you run into them while running full speed. Of course most people would just avoid the trees....

But as many people who have known me for awhile would know, I do have a tendency to do somewhat clumsy things on occasion. So it is not that suprising that I collided with a tree in the center of a field. I was wide open too...

Don't worry I am not hurt that badly besides my pride. Finished out the game, although I wasn't quite the same after that.
