    What's On Your Mind?

    Post  Ccron10 on Fri Aug 07, 2009 11:18 pm

    Got something that is bothering you and you have to say it? Got something on your mind? Feel free to let out here in this topic.

    I just got back from vacation and now I can't believe that there is only 4 weeks left in summer vacation. I won't be heading to anymore parks this summer and I plan on heading to Hershey again in October sometime and the begining of December.

    Is "subscribing" to the Moderators group the same as applying to be on staff? Question (I love these new smileys)

    I agree that indeed this summer has flown. I didn't think that you were going to HP this October. I thought you mentioned you were going in December though.

    Just want this week to get over so my vacation can officially start.

    Oh so you like fishing? I know someone at my job who really enjoys fishing. I'm not really into that kind of stuff. Just give me an amusement park and I'll be there. Smile

    Not much of a walk around hear. Little nature unless you walk a mile or two. Even so, walking is great and I normally take my bike for a ride around the town and side streets.

    Oh, and it looks like the site is the number one search on Google when you look up Keystone Thrills. We just need to have people search for the name - get it known.

    I really wouldn't know about the signature limit, but I'm glad that with the new URL starting with the name of the site and not the development thing, we're easier to spot.

    And my elusive college search continues...

    I visited Penn State Berks campus tonight and I have to say that the place isn't that appealing. I also have to add that the somewhat don't have the major that I am looking for. The campus offers Mechanical Engineering Technology, not Mechanical Engineering. I found the difference between the programs is that the Technology one is more hands on than the other. The college does allow you to take both of them and decide which one you like best.
    To sum it up, Penn State Berks is off my college list, but that doesn't mean I won't look at another Penn State campus that offers both programs! Guess which campus that is?
    drum roll please....
    The Harrisburg Campus.

    Basically all the colleges on my list now require me to stay in a dorm.

    Yeah, and especially once we get into the boring winter off-season. I "hate" winter out of all four seasons, honestly.

    I like how the snow makes everything look so clean Very Happy But, I don't like the fact that parks are closed, either.

    I was born in the summer, so its my favorite season.

    I "hate" snow, mainly because it causes lots of snarls on the road for drivers. Snow and ice are my worst enemy.

    Onto another subject, the York Fair starts here in York this Friday. I'm looking forward to going in there to eat the variety of food they have, as well as see the exhibits! I entered two different drawings this year, so I'm excited to see if I win anything.

    I am starting to get busy with the college stuff. Between now and in a couple of weeks, I will be filling out applications and so far I started now with Penn State Harrisburg. I still need to visit it, but I guess it never hurts to be early. The bad news so far is that housing is only for 324 students out of the over 1,000 students. This means that if I get accepted, I decide to go there, and they are out of housing, I would possibly need to rent an apartment in the surrounding area. On their site the added recomendations that varried from Hershey, Elizabethtown, Middletown and Hummelstown. Although it would be cool, right now I am checking out other schools as well.
    The next few weekends will be busy for me. This weekend are ACTs, next weekend is a camping trip as well as a stop at Elizabethtown College, a weekend or two off, out to Pitt-Johnstown, SATs, nothing (unless I can visit Hersheypark that Friday and Saturday), camping trip, another open weekend, then down to York College for my last college visit.
    I also want to work on improving the forums a bit and get the site a little more known too. I also have a Kennywwod Trip Report that I forgot to post here as well.

    Perhaps if you put a Kennywood TR up, send the link over to Screamscape. That's how alot of people joined this site originally. I know I will with HP in the Dark in October, and maybe a small York Fair PTR just for good measure. Just an idea.

    I thought you went to alot of those colleges (you mentioned Pittsburgh and York in the past I thought, especially the first since you went to Kennywood). Is there a reason why you're going back, unless it's part of the decision process?

    Elizabethtown was the first college I visited and really liked, but now that I have seen the others I'm interested, I want to go back and see where it stacks up. I am returning to York College to see the Engineering Dept. since I didn't last time.

    Today is the 8th aniversery of 9/11 and right now it doesn't seems like people are caring. The Reading Eagle hardly has anything on it, didn't get to see the news today, there was a moment of scilence in school, but that was about it. Maybe we have forgotten...

    I think the farther away we get from the date of the attack, (which did affect me personally - having a few friends and their relatives involved) the more people will stop caring for lack of a better word.

    It made the local and national news around here more than the local papers. Fox News also puts on a special every year about how the events happened in order.

    Also a metal beam from one of the towers made its way here to York and will be part of a memorial at Prospect Hill Cemetery, just outside the city limits.

    Well, the last column is being put into the grounds for the museum in NYC if that's what you mean. A lot of firehouses near me have one like cleaned up and protected and dedicated in front of the firehouses.

    Cool.

    Right now I have my Penn State application 95% completed. I just need to add a personal statement, send in my grades and it's finished. For some of the other colleges however I need to make up my essay which I found most are starting to shy away from them.
    This weekend I'm going on a camping trip, but I am also going to Elizabethtown again and since we'll be out there, find the Penn State Harrisburg Campus. We will be driving past Hershey, but we won't be stopping (too busy).
