Plot Twist: I'm in Love with the Eastern Shore
Erin&Dondi

I grew up on the western shore of Maryland, the "main land", or whatever you may call it. I loved where I grew up, but when it was time to go off to college I chose to attend Salisbury University on the Eastern shore; it's close enough to home, but just far enough too. Being at SU freshman and sophomore year I thought, "I love going to school here, but that's about it."

I had and still have no real desire to stay after graduation, but this year I had my car on campus so exploring the Eastern Shore became a lot easier. I also knew more people to show me around places. This summer I have an internship on campus. I was not dreading it because I was excited about the opportunity, but I figured I would be so bored and the area would be empty. This is all rather true still since many of my friends are not around, however, I actually have plenty to do and the area is not as boring as I thought.

One fact you should probably know about me is that I am a beach person. I grew up going to my grandmother's at the beach. It could be in the summer, fall, winter, and spring — any season really because I love the beach! Being on the Eastern shore, I knew I would be able to go to the beach. Most people suggest Ocean City to which I cringe at over the tourists, traffic, and parking prices. This is not the only beach on the Eastern shore though. I have found myself going to the beach much more than I expecting and I am loving every second of it. I go to the Assateague, Chincoteague, Roaring Point, and the Cove. These are varying in ocean and river beaches but all with sand, water, and sun! This is all I need, therefore I have found that maybe living here is not as bad as I initially thought.

This is summer though. The time for graduation parties and family get togethers, so I have been driving out of town to other states or back home on many weekends. Even with all of the back and forth, my drive is not so bad. When I am coming home I drive through long stretches of farm fields. They are just beautiful, especially if the sun is hitting it just right. Passing by the lone house in a breezy sea of green is amazing to look at. I don't think I will get tired of any sunset if I get to see them over the fields and waters of the Eastern Shore.

Although I am still sometimes bored, the beach is always just a short drive away. I think I can now better appreciate the Eastern Shore for it's natural beauty. I have not changed my mind on staying, but I definitely have a bigger spot in my heart for this. All these pictures have been taken on the Eastern Shore by me!

It is like I am going insane.

I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but still...it is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university. I've been finding all of the neat little short cuts that save me 10 minutes to get to a class, or just allow me to de-stress a little when I feel over whelmed.
