Another week of work has started. It's my first week of working completely by myself at the bookstore, which is overwhelming, creepy, but also sometimes lovely during the more peaceful moments. It seems this is what my summer will consist of, selling textbooks Monday-Thursdays, babysitting Fridays, and working at the coffee shop most Saturdays. It's a bizarre shock going from being within a mile of hundreds of friends 24/7 to not seeing those friends for 3 months. But it's also kind of lovely to have a break from drama and school for a while and have a chance to refocus and get ready for next year. (But let's be real, I love school. A lot. So having a break from school really doesn't matter to me.)
I'll leave this completely useless and uninteresting post with some of my favorite things from the past week, and some thought-provoking or challenging quotes that I've re-discovered lately.
Recent Summer favorites:
Rain, long drives to work by myself every day, shoe sales (20$ Pumas!), paychecks, the church in Plant City, Glen Hansard, chocolate-covered almonds, and talks/catch-ups with my high school best friend Paul :)
