What I Did on My Summer Vacation

By Katie Ash — September 04, 2008 1 min read

Hello, everyone! It’s been awhile since I’ve been able to post here on Motivation Matters, mostly because for the past few weeks, I’ve been in the middle of a massive cross-country move from my home state of Virginia to Portland, Oregon. I, along with two of my friends from college, arrived on the west coast earlier this week after a fifteen-day drive that took us across the entire continental U.S. and into the homes of several generous families who put us up along the way. It was an incredible way to see the country, and I am extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to do so.

Over the next few days, I’ll be writing about some of the things we saw and the people we met along the way--many of whom shared stories that I think will be of interest to readers of this blog.

A version of this news article first appeared in the Motivation Matters blog.
