Road Trip

Kevin Mead on Friday, 19 June 2015. Posted in Vacation / Break

There is no right of passage greater than the summer road trip. A literal and emotional journey in which you and your closest friends pile into a comically small car with cheap snacks and soda, drive to a city you've never been to, and do the most touristy stuff when you arrive. I'm ready. My friends are I are planning a road trip to NYC in July! There are two cars heading to the city. Alpha Team (my friend Austin and I) are in Maryland this summer, and will drive up in my car. Gold Team is in Rochester this summer, and will head to the city the same day. We'll be staying in Brooklyn and venturing into the city every day.  Allow me to list the things we will do. We will see the Statue of Liberty, visit Times Square, go to the top of the Empire State Building, see Central Park, eat cheap pizza, stalk celebrities we see, ride the subway and be excited about it, and I will play "Welcome to New York" by Taylor Swift. My friends will punch me for doing so. I will cry. At the end of the day I'm telling you this because college is the perfect time to do the things you've always wanted to do. Drive across the country, go skydiving, learn a new language, learn to play an instrument, it doesn't matter. Whatever your passion or your dreams, you're young and you've got the time. In the words of Shia Labeouf, just do it!
