So, I have been up in Lake Placid now for a few weeks. I am currently staying with a teammate in town, but I move into the training center tomorrow for at least a month. I’m pumped mostly because it means I will not have to make/pay for any food. Just wait, in about a week, I’m going to be complaining about how I wish I could make my own food.
It has actually been pretty nice staying in town. Lauren’s got a sick view of Mirror Lake and the weather is beautiful. Although, I will admit, I think I have been out of a dorm too long. LAure left to go to Boston yesterday and at about 4am the fire alarm went off in our building. I had ear plugs in so I don’t really know how long it was going on for before I actually woke up. Then when I did, it didn’t register that it was a fire alarm for some strange reason (probably because it was 4am) So I proceeded to lay there for 15 minutes until I decided to investigate. I stick my head out of the window to see some lights flashing and was greeted by a brisk breeze. Damn, I thought. Guess I’ll have to change and go outside. But before I headed out the door, I stopped and looked at the light creeping in through the bottom of the door. In my sleepy delusion I thought it was smoke, panicked, then thought I was going to die in a flame filled death. I grabbed some pants, sniffed the air for smoke and burst down the stairs. Then I almost fell asleep on the sidewalk waiting for the firetruck to leave. Nothing was wrong, but it did smell like someone had overcooked something on their stove and set the fire alarm off. You know what? Screw you, person who decided to burn their food at 4am!
Anyway, more updates to come. Big news on the combine front! And a bunch of videos.
