Right now, I am on duty in Austin-Pickett Hall as a member of the Residence Life Staff at Wilmington College. It is such a strange feeling being on duty on a Friday, because this is the first week of the school year that I have not covered Friday Night Football at Blanchester High School for athletic training. Although I’ve had things to do, it has been a very relaxing evening. After leaving the athletic training room on campus at 6:00, I ate and went to watch a group perform at the South Street Coffee House in downtown Wilmington. The shop opened about six months ago and it’s about a 15-minute walk from campus. To me, this is perfect walking distance, considering that I love biking and walking places. While there, I played euchre with the couple that runs For a Song and a Story, the local music shop. I had met them before, but only briefly and through shopping in the store. Wilmington is the type of town where everyone knows everyone, so we halfway recognized each other and played some cards with some live music in the background. It was also a very nice night for a walk to and from campus with some music as well. If you are ever in town, I recommend you checking out the South Street Coffee House and support local businesses!
