So I was hesitant to start a blog. Because, I’m a bit critical of myself, and do not usually come up with something insightful or poetic to write about. And… who wants to read something that’s not insightful or poetic? I think recently I’ve been inspired by some other blogs to just write about what I want to write.
Thus, a post. 🙂
Since my birthday, I had about three weeks off of work. Three weeks between the end of the public school year and the beginning of summer day camp, where I am now working as a one-on-one behavioral aid for the cutest boy in the world. It actually took two of those weeks to become acclimated to not working 10 hours a day. I was getting kind of depressed, feeling like my days were being wasted away! But just in time, by the third week, I started to embrace my lazy days before the start of work again. I got pretty ambitious with house decorating (none of my plans were actually accomplished- hah!) but I did buy some paint and canvases that were on sale at the art store. Who knows for what, because I’m definitely NOT a painter! But maybe I’ll find something fun to do with them.
It’s funny that summer is still such a transitional time, even when you’re not in elementary school and going on vacation with your family. Come to think of it- I think we only did that maybe twice. But still. I’m not a super social person, so it was a little overwhelming thinking about learning another new work environment this summer, since I was already working in two places during the school year. A lot of our friends and family that live in the city are traveling for various reasons, which makes our community super transitional right now also. While I do miss them, it does make me open up to more people, which I am thankful for.
Maybe transition isn’t confined to summers, but this summer is definitely characterized by it. I’m looking forward to seeing how things unfold in the upcoming months.
