Summertime Sadness and Many Shattered Glasses

Summer passed fairly quickly despite the full-time and working part-time.
Paid summer internships are a gift from the career heavens.

Tree had many gigs and I many banquets to serve, fake smiles to crack at lushes and their idiotic jokes. Sirs, I know funny and that is something you are cannot buy wit.

A stolen purse incident at what had been a most wonderful night... Silly banters and inappropriate advances from a colleague during a night of after-shift drinks. The mundane and extraordinary combining to make another interesting summer - never a dull moment. This whole "adult" thing is a slow process...

I made it home for the good ol' county fair and saw friends I had not seen in a while, as well as made a few new acquaintances.

Summer has been a transitional time for the past two years - a full-time internship + a part-time job and balancing the social life most young adults in their early 20's crave. I don't feel like a "real" adult just yet. What is a real adult? For starters, they have their own health insurance...

This past year has certainly been one of change. I'm 20lbs lighter than when I came home from London, no small accomplishment. It's not just the physical that has changed, though...mentally, psychologically, emotionally...I'm not that frightened little girl. I know what I want, even if I've been the only thing holding me back at times.
As Lovely told me, "It's going to be okay in the end. If it's not okay, it's not the end.

My senior year is going to be a calendar year, and not the typical fiscal school year, the fiscal part coming from loans and tuition. I have a single room waiting for me for my last few months as an undergraduate and it's exciting and scary at the same time. I'm ready to face the crazy, the only crazy I'll be putting up with being my hair.

Je suis une blonde maintenant.
