I’m on my way to Maine right now. I’m traveling in a comfy coach bus and writing you this beautiful story on my mini laptop. I’m traveling to Maine with the program, Upward Bound. Today’s game plan is to go and visit colleges and listen to a few speakers. After all that good stuff is done we will be able to kick back and relax. My program will meet up with the other U.B. programs from around the area. Then when I turn in for the night I will be with the greatest roommates! They are my best friends: Sylvia, Ninoshka, and Sade. Well I think it’s time for me to sit back and relax. And don’t worry I will keep you posted…
           Well we just finished checking into the Marriott Hotel and now we are waiting to go on our college tour. Nino, Sade, Sylvia, and I have all chosen to go to Bowdoin college. It’s an hour ride there, so when I get back to the hotel, I will fill you in…
The girls and I just got back from the college and it was COLD! It appeared to be a good college and our tour guide was friendly; the best part was the speaker, Mr. Moore. He was a very intelligent and impressive man. At this moment, we have about an hour or so to unpack. The hotel room is gorgeous and comfortable. The first thing I did when I entered the room was jump on the beds. But shh don’t tell anyone. We are going to unpack and then head downstairs to hear the next speaker talk. Be right back…
             Yummm. So I just ate some pizza and heard a speaker. But what I wasn’t expecting was the singing group from Bowdoin. They were spectacular and they kept me intrigued the whole time. Following there performance was a drum line that was also pretty interesting. Once again we are back in the room but this time we are getting ready for the dance. Well we all have to go get glamed up for tonight…
            Ahhhh refreshing. We all enjoyed our selves at the dance. Afterwards we decided to take a dip in the pool and Jacuzzi. Very Refreshing. Ekkk! LOOK at the time! It’s 11:15p.m. We have to go to a meeting to discuss our day. Be back soon…
            Wow so that meeting lasted a long time and now we have to eat [[ We ordered Chinese food ]] and shower. I had a very fun day with my girls but I really have to go. Goodnight && see you tomorrow…
            A whole lot has happened this morning but I’ve decided to wait until right now, the bus ride home, to tell you all about it. It all started with us packing up and heading down stairs for our breakfast. The toaster broke before I had a chance to use it so my bagel was cold and gross. After breakfast we went to a workshop on financial aid. It was very informing and reminded me that I have a lot of work ahead of me. After that we all went to the college fair. Now we are going to stop at burger king to get some food. After our tummies are full we are ALL going to sleep on this two hour bus ride back home. Our adventure is basically over now and I wish it could have lasted longer but like they say… “All good things must come to an end.”
