I had better revel in it now, because the real work begins tomorrow.
- 4th graders (they have a lot of energy but that's better than having a bunch of apathy. I am of course referring to the 8th graders I taught this winter)
- 65 degrees, sunny, breezy
- Driving through the pretty part of Manchester,
- Groceries and looking at (and wishing I had the money to buy) white asparagus and graffiti eggplant and peaches
- Bavaria (those of you who visited in the spring might remember me saying that I really wanted to try this restaurant. It was great. Pretty intense-lots of meat)
- Watching Tootsie
- Tom Salleck's mustache in The Killers (this movie is the worst I have see in a long time and that includes the Twilight movies. If you know me, you know that is saying a lot).
- Sleeping in
- Going to the Hillsboro County Agricultural Fair in New Boston
- Gorgeous weather
- Goats (including dwarf breeds and babies!)
- Baby Donkey
- Square Dancing
- Looking at Apple Pie winners
- Going down the giant slide. Twice.
- The Drive to New Boston
- Early bed
- Buttercup Squash
- Italian Sausage
- Whoopie pie
It's strange and kind of scary to think that I only have 40 days left here. That's 5 and 1/2 weeks. Just over a month. I only have 4 and 1/2 weeks left of fall programs. I will be home soon whether it be on a plane or via road trip.
I'm not ready. I don't have anything to do. I have no plan. I don't know when I will have a plan. But the important thing is how much I have learned about myself, my ideals, what's important, and the life in general since I have been out here.
It's too early for the big end-of-the-internship reflection so I will stop with that.
I hope the end of everyone's summer is going great.
