It's Been A Long Time!

I'm a terrible blogger. Really. I only had one post in May and none in June. Now it's over a week into July and this is my first post of the month. Oops. I'll try harder, I promise!

This summer is both flying by and crawling along. In some ways I can't believe the whole month of June is gone, but at the same time I'm so ready to be back at school for my (gulp) last year of college. So sometimes the days really seem to be crawling. I'm just without much to do here at home.

Not that I don't do anything at all. I'm still working at the lovely toy store. I'm getting a fair amount of hours and enjoying the paychecks. However, it leaves me pretty tired sometimes. I worked for 7 hours on the 4th, then turned around the next day and worked from 6-10 AM at a baby store that is also owned by the lovely toy store. This was before going into my store for an eight hour shift later that day. Needless to say I was extremely tired. And not in a particularly good mood when customers decided that I was the best person to ask a million questions to while I was up on a ladder changing displays.

Next week I'll be back at school for a few days to help out with freshmen orientation. I have a group of mentees who I am responsible for. I'll try not to ruin their lives too terribly. :)

In my spare time I've been thinking about the future a lot. And talking about it a great deal via text message with Sam. We're going to keep each other on track this year with our goals as far as applying to places goes. I've officially decided (and let both of my parents know) that I am definitely not going to pursue my Master of Arts in Teaching degree anymore. Nor am I going to pursue a career in teaching. Instead I'll be going into College Admissions. While I've hoped that there will be a position open at my school, I realize there is a good chance this won't happen. So I've been browsing through jobs on my new favorite website, and I've found a lot of really good job opportunities. So hopefully by the time I graduate there will still be lots of good ones out there.

My parents are really okay with this, thankfully. After telling my mom about one of the jobs I found in Wyoming she pulled out her atlas and found it on the map and then looked the school and town up online and told me all about it. I don't know that I'll end up quite that far away from Georgia, but I'm open to anything. So for now I'm just going to have to wait and see!
