I haven't done a post like this in a while, mostly because I haven't had the time to sit down and type it out! So I'm taking the time now.
This is just a little update about me and my life. :)
(photo from last week... High five for self timer shots!)
I just finished my second semester of college. I'm half way to my associate's degree in visual communications! Yay! I can't decide whether or not I will continue on at a four-year school to get a bachelor's degree after next year… I will deal with that decision closer to the end of my schooling. ;) This past Wednesday was my last day and seriously, I love that I'm already "out for the summer" and it's only the beginning of May. Pure happiness.
I am also staying busy working at the preschool/ daycare that I worked at when I was in high school (roughly two years ago!). I love my 3-year-olds. :) I am working in the afternoons every day for the month of May. We will see if that stresses me out because when I was in college, I worked only Tuesday, Thursday, Friday because of my classes on Monday and Wednesday. I also sub for the morning teachers if they need to be off for any reason. Last week I worked Thursday and Friday all day. Good for the paycheck, not for the stress levels! LOL Sometimes I have way too many kids for just one person. Like, sometimes I have as many as 15 or 16 by myself. Yep. Craziness. I don't like that part about my job. :\
And I am going to have a SUPER awesome month of June. Why? Because one, I'M GOING TO PARIS! Yes, I decided to take a trip to Paris this summer. It's actually a 10-day trip with a school around here (not the high school I went to) and it's a tour to Berlin, Germany, and Paris, France. There are about 15 people going (half adults, half high school students) and I don't know any of them! :P I suppose I will know them after this trip though! It is my dream come true to visit Paris. The tour is a World War II tour and so we are visiting Normandy and other places where major events happened during the war. I'm no history guru, but I would have to say that if I picked a favorite time period of history, it'd be WWII. AND I get to see all of the awesome architectural buildings that I have read about in my Art books in college (hello Eiffel Tower and the Notre Dame Cathedral!). Excited is actually an understatement. I leave in 28 days. Just sayin'.
Then when I get back from Paris, I will be home for a few days and then I take off on a week-long trip to Oregon! This will be the first time I've been there, so I'm really excited about that too. There is a church camp meeting and youth retreat that I'm attending up there. So pretty much all of June I will be gone on adventures. :) :) :) :) :) :)
So yeah. There's the exciting things going on in my life. I'm single and lovin' it. :)
