Logging back into TH virtual machine in terminal

I took a break of a day between videos and now when I go back to Terminal in Mac, the prompt is for my local home directory. I can't remember how to re-initiate virtualbox to get to the same screen prompt as the beginning of this video starts in.

You have to use "cd" and "cd .." to move around your directory to get to the path where you saved the TreeHouse virtual machine. This quick tutorial can help: http://gr8idea.info/os/tutorials/linux/cd.html

Then use this to fire up vagrant:

Launch vagrant and download virtual machine: vagrant up

Log In To VM: vagrant ssh

Shut Down VM: vagrant halt

Thank you!
