My First Month at Cedar Point

In the blink of an eye, I’ve already spent slightly more than a month in Cedar Point, America’s rockin’ Roller Coast. I can hardly believe that I’ve been living the American dream right here in Sandusky, Ohio.

And I’m ashamed to admit that I’ve abandoned (or neglected) my initial ambitious agenda of documenting my entire “Cedar-Point experience”. My only excuse is that I’ve been really, really, really busy with my job as a ride host, and I have barely enough time to eat, sleep, and hang out with my friends. Therefore, squirreling away all alone in my room to write about my life was really one of the last things on my mind. You’ll have to forgive me alright? Because if you don’t, I probably won’t write anymore… who am I kidding? I love writing!

Anyway, I’ll love to give you the low-down about how I spent my first month in Cedar Point:
