The Fall Semester

Yes, I know I’m supposed to be graduated and done with school for now. But, in all seriousness, did any of us think that I was going to not do anything in regards to school?

I’m taking a screenwriting course, which should be fun because I’ve always wanted to learn to write a script. I actually have to write a 20-page script by the end of the semester and I’m excited to see how that will turn out.

Additionally, the journal for the symposium I presented at last semester extended its due date for submissions, so I am still able to submit my research. This means I’ve been learning about corporate taxes for almost a year, so the information is pretty much embedded in my head. I’m working on that currently, changing a few things and updating the information.

I feel like I’m still at St. Ed’s a little because of it and I kind of fangirl a little. Yes, I fangirl over a university. I’m sure I’m not the only one.

But what is taking up most of my time at the moment? Waiting.

Waiting for my job to start. Since Apple contacted me telling me that they did in fact want me for the position, I have been extremely excited to get started. It will be a contract job, which is honestly still a blessing and honor, but I have a delay period until the job is approved. I still have 2-4 weeks until the delay should be over and I keep hoping they tell me sooner that they want me to start.

Waiting is so boring. Especially when you’re excited to get started.

Plus, I want to move in officially to my apartment with my friends and start this new life of mine.

But patience is a virtue and I shall continue waiting patiently. Or, at least as patiently as I can.

The Beginning of an Adventure: Summertime!

For those of you taking college courses, we’re at the end of the school year. The summer is upon us and, oh, how bright that summer is looking. There is so much that can happen during the summer – swimming and parties and tanning and summer jobs and hanging with friends back home. It seems that something transformational always happens during that time, when you are apart from your peers that you see on a daily basis. When the end of the long, sunny summers comes to an end, you go back to school sun-kissed and sparkling. Maybe a little worn out from the doubles you pulled to make a little more money to go towards your students loans, and a little sad to be taken away from the freedom of what only the summer can be, but ready to head back nonetheless. 

Okay, so maybe my language is a little fluffy in describing the summer. It may be a little more grueling than it sounds, but it is a time of the year that you get to chill and relax. Enjoy the sun. 

Working a full-time job kind of takes away from the enjoyment of the summer, especially when you lose the will to really do too much. It’s still important to spend as much time enjoying what you have. Spend time with your friends, your family. Eat that ice cream when the sun seems to be at its hottest. Learn to dive at the city pool. Stare at the stars one night when you are having a hard time going to sleep. 

Personally, I want this summer to be absolutely amazing. I want to grow my hair back up (look out Rapunzel, I’m going to give you some competition), earn enough money to buy an old car for next school year, get a tan, work out more, and just become a better person. I want to work on a book, maybe finish it. I’m not sure if that will happen, because I’ve been telling myself since middle school that I was going to write a book. But you never know. Like I said, the summer can be transformational.

What do you have planned this summer?
