Bits of My Weekend...

This isn't much of a daily style post, but a little self portrait I took in my hotel on Friday.
So this weekend was a busy one! You'll have to excuse the mega huge post, but I've done a lot! Saturday and Sunday, I took part in a letterpress and typography workshop at the school I work at. Saturday we worked on a collaborative project and on Sunday I made business cards!

<span class=These next few images are actually from today. Did you know that today was National Family Day? Me neither. But, t worked out well because this afternoon, I met up with my Dad, Step-mom, and Grandparents after work and we drove up the Mount Washington auto road. Mount Washington is the tallest peak in the Northeast and also part of the Appalachian trail. When I was in High School our snowboarding team hiked up part of it and rode down! It also has the highest recorded wind at over 200 miles an hour! It's also only 30 minutes from where my parents live. Why haven't I been up since I was 5? I don't know. It was on my Grandparents bucket list so, up we went:

Thank you all for your lovely comments, I'm on the road for work this week so I am a little off from my normal schedule, but I'm reading and appreciating every one! As a College Admissions Counselor, part of my job is visiting high schools all over New England and presenting our school to interested students. This is what I am up to right now. I'l be traveling over the next month or so, going to college fairs, portfolio days, and high school fairs, hopefully gaining applicants. Once the travel season is over, I'll be back in my office reviewing applications and getting those students to come to our school! It's an extremely busy job, but I love the travel aspect of it. Feel free to ask any questions!

I have been trying to get a job at a college or university in my area (Boulder, CO) as an admissions advisor. This is my dream job! What sort of experience do you have or should I have? How did you land such an awesome job?

Thanks for your help,
