Did I mention that I have a waitressing job this summer?
I’ve wanted one forever. I love it.
Plus, I still get to work at the Brown Dog. Going back to the coffee shop I know and love was a very exciting way to begin the summer. I’m actually kind of sad that this is my last summer of “menial” work. I only get to work at a restaurant and coffee shop for 3 more months? And after that I’m expected to get a real job and never work in the food industry again? Darn.
I mean, I could work at a restaurant again after I graduate, but that would mean fulfilling the stereotype about graduating with an English degree and not getting a job. Definitely don’t want to reinforce that, especially since I have lots of plans to use my degree to its fullest. And I guess it is safe to say that I am more excited about those plans than waitressing.
Activities this summer so far have included: Lots of time with family and high school friends. Multiple visits to Waterloo. Work. Lots of sitting in the local McDonalds with a $1 ice coffee reading The Grapes of Wrath. Anklet-wearing and rollerblading, painting, and New York City. Anticipating Rachel’s return at the end of July and chicken on the barbecue.
It’s been good.
Oh my goodness.. I just died a little bit. This is beautiful.
…because Mat Kearney is great.
I’m getting pretty good at writing essays in class.
My grade 12 English teacher showed this website to my class 3 years ago (bless him. He’s been such an influence to me. But that’s a post for another time.)
I wanted to say that I still love this website. And I look at it a lot.
I love it when my papers are just too short, and then I remember that New Times Roman size 12 is bigger than Calibri size 11, even though both are acceptable. That saved me from sticking in an extra paragraph of fluffy filler that I really didn’t want to include anyway.
This spring feels like a time for new beginnings and healthy endings and maybe even some redemption.
How do you even dance like that
