So, I’ve felt like a huge slacker so far this summer. I’m not taking classes, and have been unemployed thus far. I suppose I could’ve been writing, but I was feeling so distressed at being a slacker, I couldn’t even find the motivation to do that. (I can only stand to be doing nothing for only a couple days, max, and then I start feeling useless because I’m not doing anything productive. That’s just the way I am.) I interviewed for a job on Monday but wasn’t entirely optimistic about getting it, and had applied for numerous other jobs. I was planning to go fill out paperwork on Monday to volunteer at the local branch of the YMCA, just so I’d be doing something.
So today I was offered a job, which I start on Monday morning. So that’s exciting. Yay, not feeling like a slacker! Yay, money!
I actually ended up stopping by the Y today, anyway. I would still like to volunteer a few hours a week, assuming my work schedule will allow it, and if it doesn’t, I’ll do it during the school year. I would be with the school-aged program, so younger than what I intend to teach, but I still have a lot of experience with this age group and I do like them. It’s been so long since I’ve done anything with children; it’ll be nice to get back into that. I miss it.
And tomorrow morning, I will walk downtown to my favorite coffee shop, relishing the (hopefully) nice weather and enjoying a lazy Saturday morning with no obligations awaiting me. And then, at long last, I will write.
