this is a bit late, but moving takes a lot and my job is insane and beers were calling my name and holy cow is it hot. maybe a few other ands in there for good measure, too.
so my first road trip all by myself was a rousing success! 900 miles of nothing but me, the open road, and satellite radio station 58: e street radio – bruce springsteen 24/7. [discovered that station about 200 miles into the trip and it was a gift from the heavens.] i took a bit of a break in santa fe and old town albuquerque, both of which were absolutely delightful.
san felipe de neri. it’s right on the plaza and the oldest building in the city.
a lantern on the adobe of san felipe de neri.
chiles on the plaza.
don francisco cuervo y valdes – the founder of albuquerque.
i’m not sure what i was expecting, but albuquerque was so nice – i would love to go back.
i pulled over a few times to take pictures. definitely had to get one of my new state’s welcome sign! this was right after i picked up a bazillion 47 brochures from the welcome center. take that, environment! actually, i’m here for 10 weeks, will be gone for 3 weekends, so i need to be equipped to make the most out of my other 7 weekends! there’s much to see and do, i’m so excited!
during the week, i’m trying not to drown at my job. holy batman am i in over my head. but that’s another post for another day. but for now, let me just say that my heart almost jumped out of my chest today when my boss called me into his office and told me to close the door. holy balls am i about to get fired?!?! no, nothing like that. but bosses of the world, know that the prospect of closed door meetings are terrifying. and the serious face you have going? definitely makes it worse.
have any of you been to/through new mexico? arizona? long road trip with the boss playing the whole way? share your stories! it was a great way to start my summer, that’s for sure.
