So many of my colleagues and friends are graduating tomorrow. On Monday, I begin working “in the real world” for a summer.
Initially my plans for the summer included a great internship. Well, after learning more about the place and it’s expectations and needs, I have come to the difficult conclusion that I ought to pass on this round. Great institution with lofty and much-needed goals, but not for me. So it’s time to regroup.
Plans, as they are developing now, include a good deal of paid work in the office and a hefty (and well deserved) three- to four-week vacation. During this time, I plan on introspecting and being creative; reading some poetry and painting some walls; or even just taking care of a friend’s dog and volunteering at a local shelter. Who knows? I’m looking forward to the chance to introspect and have some rest. The world will keep on without me for a minute.
As it stands, my summer is looking to be a good one. You?
