I have good news and bad news. Which would you like to hear first? I'll give you the good news first. Colts In Motion has made a full recovery from that little incident where the door fell off and is back to looking as sharp as ever. But now on to the bad news. It pains me to say, but this is officially my last blog that I will write as a Colts intern. It feels like only yesterday I was sitting here trying to figure out how to write my first blog, and now I am having that same difficulty for writing my last blog.
I have been trying to figure out how to write this last blog for awhile now. And if you ask any of my fellow interns, they can tell you I have been stumped. I've found that my best ideas come to me right before I fall asleep. However, by morning I have completely forgotten my brilliant idea. So this week I decided to put an end to that. I put a notepad next to my bed so when I get these ideas I can write them down before I fall asleep and use them in the morning. However, all I find in the morning are scribbles on my notepad. I've learned if you are too tired to remember, you are way too tired to try to write. So this has left me stumped.
These past three months have flown by. We completed 16 Make It Personal stops and 8 Fan Fests. Even though it was as hot as could be outside, sometimes rainstorms/tornados, and wind gusts that would blow away a small car, we were able to dominate all of our stops and allow the fans to have great time.
For our last stop we ventured out to North Central High School for the North/South All-Star game. Before the tour stop, we went over to Matt's house for a little bonding time. We discovered that Matt has the most adorable dog and that the movie "Death at a Funeral" is a rather funny movie. At the tour stop, easily my favorite part was the Chik-Fil-A prize wheel. I won the grand prize which happened to be a milkshake.
Overall, this has been the best summer of my life. It even beats out the summer that I spent abroad in Spain. I might have run with the bulls in Spain, but those bulls don't compare to the tornados I ran away from in Anderson during Fan Fest. I have so many great memories from this summer, and luckily for me most were caught on camera.
I really hope that everyone enjoyed reading my blog this summer. And fear not because there will be a new intern next summer to blog about their adventures, even though they can never compare to the adventures that we had (just kidding…but seriously).
Don't forget, you have a couple more chances to come out and meet myself as well as all of the other interns that have made this the best summer of my life at training camp starting Friday (7/25). We will be working at Colts City at training camp. To learn more about training camp, keep up to date with www.Colts.com.
