"Home is a place you grow up wanting to leave, and grow old wanting to get back to."
John Ed Pearce
I can remember wanting nothing more than to move away from Burnt Hills when I was growing up. It was boring, the people were all the same, etc. etc. And yet, here I am, a short 5 years later and I couldn't be happier to be back where I grew up. Being back in a place where the people know me and actually care whether or not I succeed is an amazing feeling. I hope that my children will have an opportunity to experience this type of town.
Today was the first day of orientation and it was, surprisingly, quite enjoyable. There were 3 other BH grads there, and everyone was wonderful. The atmosphere was relaxed and the material was relavent. At the end of the day they showed us how to log on to our email and things of that nature. I was so excited about actually having my own job related email. And, I'm going to make a website for my class!!! :-) Can't wait to get started on that.
Have one more full day of Orientation left. Hoping it's good!
