Title: 32 Items (6-3-11) sponsored by White Water Rafting (www.PhillyTrips.com)

Sorry about yesterday's email about the Philly2Night.com VIP card.  I realized most of the dates had passed but they have free events all year.  Even at the $15, it seems like a good deal. 

Hope everyone is enjoying the great weather - so much better than all that rain.  Enjoyed the first beach days in Avalon over the weekend.  Hopefully we can avoid the rain on Sunday for the Bike race.  For those that do not know, the Bike Race is a big party on 'The Wall' in Manayunk.  It is one of my favorite Philly days of the year.

A few weeks back, I went to a DJ event in FDR (near the stadiums).  For anyone in to BMX or skate boarding, there is a really incredible area to play in - developed by locals who built if to play in - very impressive and still expanding.  It is directly under 95. parkksating bmx area under 95.  I just googled it and found this.

For anyone looking for good data on the Phillies season, check out this site: http://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/PHI/2011-schedule-scores.shtml

I have been super busy in between the shore, Preakness, Phish shows (2 in Holmdel, NJ this week), and of course WORK.  My Temple new build is going up quite nicely.  Here is a photo from today.  We are completing our HVAC, plumbing, electric, stucco, and brick work by this weekend and am ready to insulate and start drywalling next week.  I think I already have them rented too which is great.  In addition, I had a recent rehab in the northeast that we completed and put under contract within a week of it being on the market.  Some photos here of that one.  Plus there are other projects happening.....but I am never too busy to help you buy/sell as your Realtor.....And rates are still great as a headline I read this morning states: Fixed Mortgage Rates Continue Downward Slide.   Freddie Mac today released the results of its Primary Mortgage Market Survey (PMMS), which showed fixed-rate mortgages declining for the seventh consecutive week to new lows amid continuing weak economic and housing data. The 30-year fixed averaged 4.55 percent and the 15-year averaged 3.74 percent.  - Mark

Career objective is to secure employment utilizing my experience along with applying knowledge gained from my Fashion and Retail Management degree. 

At this time my personal goal is to become established in Philadelphia both personally and professionally.  An ideal employment situation would be with a well established retailer working within the corporate side of the operation.  

For almost 3 years I have carried the work load of a 40 hour work week while attending college full-time through the Art Institute of Pittsburgh Online working toward goal of obtaining a Bachelors degree in Fashion and Retail management.   Coming down to my final few months of schooling I am looking forward to stepping into a growing career path.

I am willing to continue on as an Executive Assistant, Office Supervisor or Office manager with a company that extends potential growth from these positions.  The eventual career goal is to work in visual merchandising, advertising, or marketing. I am not set on limiting myself to these career options. As I learn more about the industry I will be able to further expand my knowledge of positions offered.   Email naclites@yahoo.com if you can be of help.
