We’re just beginning to get ready for our summer vacation and oh boy it’s going to be hectic! But c’est la vie. So much to pack, and now that I’ve already hit the halfway point of my summer break, it’s time to start seriously registering for fall classes and I’m seriously not liking the yearly addition to the tuition. Yikes! What about your family? Has summer finally begun for you? Also, Happy Fourth of July to all my American readers! 🙂 document.write(”);
Do you have pen-pals? Do you still send or receive snail mail? When you do or did… did you ever add anything extra into the envelopes? Recipes, cards, photos, perfume samples, confetti. I’m looking for ideas for an envelope I’m mailing to a friend. So if you have any ideas, please let me know! 😀 Are you working on any projects this summer?
So this week decided to go by in the blink of an eye. Goodness gracious! Almost half of my summer vacation has already passed by. What is this madness? What have I been doing? Absolutely nothing productive. Wasting my time with things I know I will regret later on. Come Autumn I will say “Why, oh why did I waste my summer?!” But hey, what’s life if you don’t have any regrets. I did finally get a bookshelf for my room. All my books are put away and no more boxes for me! Mostly anyways. There’s just something so comforting about having a bookshelf in my room. What have you been up to? Has school let out yet? Any summer vacation plans? Let me know! document.write(”);
Yesterday was my first day at work. They were hiring folks on the spot next week and I began yesterday. It was a pleasant experience and I’m glad to be doing what I’m doing. 🙂 Today, however, is special because of a certain May baby. The baby of the house turns 12 and tonight the house will be filled with boys who will help us celebrate the Kid’s last birthday as a preteen. I know it’s his birthday and I don’t want to make it about me (but I’m about to do so anyways), yet I feel a mixture of sadness and so much joy. My little child is becoming a man. And next year he becomes a teenager! Worse than that, the same year he enters adolescence, I leave it. Forever. I’ll be 20 next year. I can’t really believe it though. It doesn’t sink in. How do I go about growing up? I’m really not sure. Can’t I just stay here in my room and be 15 for the next couple of years while I figure it out? 20? What does one do when one is 20? Pretty sure you’re supposed to have at least that figured out. Oh wells, today’s about the Kid who has all his life yet to live. Do you remember your 12th birthday?
Wow. It’s over!I can’t believe Wednesday was my last final for this semester. It went by in a blink of an eye. I can definitely see myself saying the same thing when these four years finish. Wow. It was a wonderful semester in all honesty and like my history professor said yesterday before the final, “I hope you guys can look back to the beginning of the semester and say ‘God has been good.'” Indeed I can.
It was a wonderful four months and even though I’m sure I will enjoy the next four months of academic freedom, a little piece of me actually does look forward to the fall. Yes, actually. 🙂
And yes, I have four months until school begins again, which means I probably should be taking summer courses. However, it has been about three years since I’ve taken summer vacation from school, so I’ve decided to take a break this month. I took seven classes this semester, so I’m thinking I can afford it. Hopefully.
Anyways. I’m sure I will have much more to say when I get back to blogging, which will be very soon if everything goes according to plan. But for this weekend, I will breathe. What have you been doing? What will you be doing this weekend? document.write(”);
