Sometime Sunday afternoon, I was on twitter and one of the people I talk to told me I should go see a singer/songwriter who was performing at 12th & Porter (a bar) on Monday night, her name is Jenn Bostic (and let me tell you, if you haven't heard her sing, go to YouTube and listen...but I'll do y'all afavor and post a few video clips in here). Monday I started my training on the morning show, therefore Monday-Wednesday I had to be at work at 2:30am. Going out on a Monday night might prove a little difficult. In order to manage, I forced myself to take a nap when I got home from work at 11am. I was only able to get about 2-3 hours in before maintenance showed up but hey it was something.

Wednesday was my Friday this week and I was very excited to have a few days off work. Things were going well and I was getting very comfortable learning the system but needed to sleep! But sleep would have to wait because I had plans on Wednesday night! Nashville Scene (a magazine with local events and stuff in it - Cleveland has a similar magazine called Cleveland Scene) was sponsoring an event called Movies in the Park and this week they were showing "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" at

Thursday I wen to the DMV and officially traded in my Ohio drivers license for a Tennessee one, I had to do it quick because it expires on my birthday which is fast approaching. After the 2 hour ordeal at the DMV I went to grab lunch at Firehouse Subs. I had seen this franchise when I was interviewing in South Carolina a few years back but never tried it. Overall, the sub was good but it's kind of pricey (ala Jersey Mike's). They have Cherry Limeade but it's no where near as good as Sonic! Hit up Publix (grocery store) after since I had not yet been grocery shopping and had been here almost 2 full weeks but thanks to my friends Laurie and Steph who as a welcoming present gave me some money to buy groceries, I decided I should go. I've since decided that I will no longer be shopping at Publix as it is more expensive than Kroger.
Here are a few pics I took at the U2 "concert"
