Do you have your own jumping photos that you think are perfect? Or, do you have some hilarious jumping-photo fails? We want to see them! http://atxne.ws/1pegeED

  6. Today is the last day of my internship at the Austin American-Statesman. I’ve been in Austin for 11 weeks and I’ve had such a great time exploring the city and getting to know the newsroom. This was my first experience in a professional newsroom and I really enjoyed it. All of the people here have been kind and helpful, and I learned a lot about social media, updating news sites, blogging and even video editing.

    Thank you so much to everyone who helped me out at the Statesman this summer. I asked a lot of questions and I always got helpful answers. I’m so grateful for the experience that I’ve had at the Statesman this summer and will always remember it fondly.

    Good luck to the next interns!

  7. Zilker Park is fascinating to me because people are always out there being active and playing sports even though it’s about a hundred degrees in the day. Back home, there would only be a few overachieving runners on the trails in the morning. The rest of the day the park would be pretty much empty. Trying to get the most out of our last few weeks in Austin, my roommate and I went to Blues on the Green  which will only happen two more times this summer!  a couple of weeks ago, which was my first time at Zilker.

    We returned later to check out Zilker Botanical Garden, which is really cheap at only $2 for adults and worth the trip. We were enticed by the prehistoric garden, but the whole thing was fun to walk around. It’s great if you’re looking for some lighter activity in the shade, which is about all I can handle in the middle of the Texas summer. Austinites are always walking around and hanging out outside, looking like they enjoy drinking their hot coffee in hundred-degree weather. The only way to get me to go outside in the day right now is to take me to Barton Springs.
