January 31, 2012 (Washington DC)—The Washington, DC community will be receiving the most highest honor the city has received since its discovery by the Native Americans. At approximately 11AM (EST) today, a select group of Washingtonians and others throughout the nation will be given the privilege to access Mark Wohlschlegel II’s Facebook Timeline.

Today, I am joining the masses, by my own choice, and switching to Facebook timeline, confusing though it be,” says Wohlschlegel.

Facebook Timeline has been met with resistance from a great number of its millions of users, but Mr. Wohlschlegel is leading the nation in this monumental transformative act of resistance.

“Facebook timeline is a mystery to me,” says Wohlschlegel. “I tend to resist any type of Facebook change. If it works, why fix it?”

Truer words were never spoken.

Wohlschlegel, the national hero and leader we have all been waiting for, is putting his differences aside and taking charge to move society forward as an honorable and overly generous figure children will soon be reading about in school.

“Facebook took away the choice for its users to opt out, so in the interest of taking the figurative Facebook change by the horns, the requirement by Pinterest to have Facebook timeline for access, and the relentless ‘encouragement’ of a close friend—who shall remain nameless to protect the guilty—I have decided to take the plunge.”

Mr. Wohlschlegel’s moral stance and fearless leadership continues to baffle Congressmen in both parties, rattle the cages of world dictators, and startle squirrels crossing the street.

He sums up the foundation of his political platform with this closing remark: “That being said, I love snickerdoodles. I miss my beard. Thank you and God Bless.”

A Long Flight

When buying my tickets for California, I came across a flight that appeared to be a direct flight, leaving Norfolk on Sunday, October 5th at 5pm, and said to arriving in Oakland 12am. I thought the website might have accidently put the EST arrival time on, cause I knew the flight to California does not take 10 hours!! Well, I was right about one thing, it was a direct flight to Oakland ... just with stops in Washington D.C., San Diego, and then Oakland ... just all the same plane!!! Haha!

So my arrival in California was actually 3 am for me! Oh the joys of jet lag. Thank you Lord for the safe flight. Stayed in a pretty nice hotel in Berkeley, right on the Marina.
Got to enjoy a new rental also, a gold HHR. Always wanted to know what a PT Cruiser drove like - this is just a little bit bigger. Pretty roomy, not a bad drive. :)

Trip Across PA - Waynesburg

I have never seen so much of Pennsylvania, even after having lived there for over 10 years! Daniel and I literally traveled across the state of PA, from Newark, DE to Waynesburg, PA - all the way on the west side of the state! The trip took about 5 hours, but it was a nice drive, especially since I had company on the trip. And Pennsylvania in the fall is beautiful - the trees and their marvelous colors.
Waynesburg seemed like a nice little college town. I had a pretty good turnout at the Grad Fair and as it turns out, one of faculty's sons attends Regent Law.
Dan and I are going to spend the weekend with our cousin Brad near Geneva College. Should be a fun.

Trip Across PA - University of DE

Okay, okay... I realize that Delaware is not in PA, but it was on my schedule, and I was already pretty close being in Philly. Daniel and I ended up switching hotels to the one right on the edge of University of DE campus because it had a pool & hot tub. That was a fun way to relax after after our fair. It is also where we learned about the YouTube videos of the "Trunk Monkey" from our friend Marnie of Albany Law School. They are halarious! (see post below - my fav is the chaperone!)

Trip Across PA - Drexel

Next stop was Philadelphia at Drexel University. This was the biggest grad fair I have been to, to date. They actually held it in the train station in downtown Philly. That was pretty cool. Dan found a place to work on his school while I did my thing. We didn't stay in the city, but rather drove in from Delaware. Not sure I would have enjoyed going to school in the city. Way too much traffic and some "iffy" areas close by. Nice to visit though. Dan definitely agreed.

Trip Across PA - Lehigh

My first stop along my whirlwind trip across of Pennsylvania was Lehigh University in Bethlehem. There I connected with some fellow recruiters I had met in Kansas City. It is always nice to see familiar faces when your on the road so much. Definitely enjoy having Daniel along though. Makes the car trips much better. I also taught him to play the new board game I bought called Acquire. Good times!
