1,000 miles: step 40

Like all summers (and winter breaks), now that school is right around the corner, it feels like my days are flying past at 65 miles per hour–and that’s too fast for me. I know because that’s the speed that drives me insane whenever Mom puts me on the freeway.

This summer, I started working a few hours with my campus bookstore. It’s been a completely new experience for me, and I’ve learned that the retail business is not my calling. When it comes to people giving up money, it’s not cotton candy and sunshine. Though, I have had the pleasure of having quick, but engaging conversations with customers and coworkers. It’s the little things that keep me going… after all, Claudia needs money for some expensive textbooks herself.

The most memorable part of these past months has been trying out something I’ve lost practice in: keeping in touch with friends. And it’s quite fun, especially when it involves a trip to the zoo.

Tulip, the cutest cow around town

And family time is not far behind. I’ve had several sibling moments now that my brother visits more often. I suppose, he enjoys an entire apartment to himself.

The kid thinks I’m “too much crazy,” which is fine. Mild insanity (in the form of emotions) seems to run in the family. At least, on my father’s side.

Here’s one of the pictures I took at our trip to Ocean City:

My toddler-cousin brought these to my attention, right as we left the beach

Cheers for a summer had, summer going, fall coming. 🙂
