More Lobsta

I went to Acadia National Park on a tour. It is made up of entirely donated land. We drove up Cadillac Mountain and all around the park. The views of Bar Harbour were stunning and I even saw Martha Stewart and the Law & Order creator's houses. We ended at The Bar Harbor Club for a Lobster Bake. Maine is the most charming place to visit in the spring.

This Is It

Last night was our last big performance. It's all over now. I feel so odd because my heart hurts but I am so happy at the same time. I spent 9 months meeting amazing people, dancing and exploring the world. I'm not the person I was when I left Ohio in September. I have an entirely different outlook on the world and life. I've never been afraid to leave or step outside of what I'm used to. I feel as if the world is even smaller than I already thought it was and I definitely plan to do more traveling.

Sarah, Loryn, Gerry, Kevin, Ray, Esera & David: Knowing you has made my life significantly better. This is the most fun I've ever had. I don't think that one day has gone by in the last 9 months that I haven't laughed with you or at you. You are all so funny and talented. I can only hope that some of your amazingness has rubbed off on me. Thank you for being real and brutally honest. Your advice and guidance has helped me to become more confident in my dancing and life decisions.

So... What's next for me? As far as my career goes, I want nothing more than to make my childhood dream of becoming a Radio City Rockette come true. I will also be applying to jobs in line with my degree in communications. I would love to be a writer or publicist. In the meantime, I am going to spend time getting to know my family and friends again. I can't wait to cuddle my puppy and go through all of the stuff I bought in my travels. I also plan to see my amazing boyfriend which I am already counting down to.

Bye Veendam family!!

Almost Home

We are almost finished with out 9+ month contracts. I feel like no one back home will understand anything that has happened on here. Our cast is way too comfortable with one another which is both hilarious and terrifying. Our discovery of 4 pics one word and Candy Crush has destroyed much of our verbal communication since there are no new Walking Dead and New Girl episodes to discuss. I think it may be time to say goodbye. I am going to miss the ship and my friends so much though. I even met a great guy from Holland so we are enjoying our time together while we can. Anyway…I’m off to crush some candy then get my party on in Canada tonight : )

Tea at the Chateau

I went on a walking tour in Quebec City which included a stop at the chateau for tea.
