Summer in Charleston

After four months of rejection from 31 companies, I finally nailed down an internship for the summer. Obviously this is a bad time to be trying to find a job in the real estate development sector, but I never imagined that it would be as bad as it was. I will be down Charleston (Mt. Pleasant, technically) working for a company called Avtex Commercial. It should be fun and I'm looking forward to getting down there this week.

Here are some photos from around the Charleston area that I took when we were down there for a class trip back in May. Hope you enjoy.

Beautiful pictures, Trip. You can't beat the lowcountry. Enjoy your time in Charleston.

"To describe our growing up in the lowcountry of South Carolina, I would have to take you to the marsh on a spring day, flush the great blue heron from its silent occupation, scatter marsh hens as we sink to our knees in mud, open an oyster with a pocketknife and feed it to you from the shell and say, "There. That taste. That's the taste of my childhood." - Pat Conroy, The Prince of Tides

Thank you, sir, it should be fun. Also, as for that quote, I just heard it the other day because there is a reading of it on the website for Palmetto Bluff (which is an awesome place, by the way).
