Obligatory Post of Photos from my Trip

So, my first week of training has been AWESOME.  I've had a few moments that I would describe as "adventurous," where I almost had panic attacks, but that's par for the course when I travel far, end up in a completely new place, and meet a ton of people.


The biggest of those moments was a week ago, when Dan's car broke down on the way to the airport.  I'm happy that I took the time to immortalize the event with my camera, because now it just seems really funny. Did I mention that my flight left during a blizzard? They got about six inches of snow between 6AM and noon.

You can click through to see my other photos (I figured I would break up the post so that people with feedreaders didn't have to suffer through a long string of photos that they didn't want to see.)

I don't have a lot of skyline views... I'll have to fix that this week!


The view from my hotel room is not that stellar. And what is up with Cub Foods? Is this really where people in the Midwest get food? The one I went in seemed worse than the grossest, cheapest places in my hometown.  I like this night shot that I took though. It doesn't look like an amazing place, but I think it looks slightly cooler. 

There was a pawn shop where tablets were only $50! Holy crap! I was really tempted, but I'm going to have to get a new computer soon, and I think I'll get a tablet instead.  Plus, I do really really love books.

One of the places I went cut this snowflake out of sheet metal with a laser.  How boss is that?

We went to the Mall of America, but just to eat.  I think I'm going to go after class next week to shop around and buy souvenirs!

A few of us went to this place called SkyZone (why have I never heard of this before!?) where you pay to jump around on a bunch of trampolines.  I took a picture of the cool shoes I got to wear.

Art I saw:


  1. Looks like you are having a good time on your trip in spite of the shaky start.

  2. Don't go to Cub foods - Rainbow is usually better, Super Target even better, and if you want to get fancy, hit up Byerly's or Kowalski's.
    The Mall of America is insane - enter at your own risk :)
    Don't miss the Minneapolis Institute of Arts - one of the best art museums in the country, and it's FREE!


Hey, thanks for leaving a comment on my blog! :) I really appreciate it!
