I’ve had a great start to my summer. First, I spent a week visiting two of my best friends, Ellie and Anna, in Virginia Beach. I got to experience water tubing ( and flying off, special thanks to Leah and Camille Cooper,) Busch Gardens amusement park, and of course, Bojangles Biscuits. One interesting point about Virginia Beach; It’s right next to Norfolk, which houses the largest Navy base in the world, so you hear the constant roar of Navy fighter jets practicing. It feels very fortified. I would like to thank the Randolph family for allowing me to stay in there house, without having previously met me. Ellie and Anna are both amazing people and I really enjoyed seeing them. You’re welcome in Chicago anytime!
