Things I've Done This Month

So I haven't blogged in over a month! Wow!

Since then, I have...

  • Purchased a new bathing suit.
  • Started work (I'm a lifeguard/swim instructor/bus counselor at a day camp).
  • Loved work.
  • Hated work.
  • Realized that while my job can drive me crazy, I'd MUCH rather be doing what I do than working in retail.
  • Realized that, as a 17-year-old with a high school diploma and lifeguarding certification as my only qualifications, I'm lucky to have a job that pays (even though it doesn't pay $500/hour).
  • Lost said previously mentioned bathing suit (it's gotta be somewhere!).
  • Gone to orientation.
  • Met my (temporary) advisor.
  • Found out that I am walking in to college with at least one semester's worth of credits (18?).
  • Registered for my classes... including Calculus 3.
  • Realized that Calculus 3 will probably be pretty hard.
  • Re-read Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and started re-reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
  • Gotten a sty in my eye.
  • Watched way too much TV.
  • Had a sore throat and been terrified that I would lose my voice, and been equally terrified that I had swine flu (I didn't).
  • Been to Barnes & Noble too many times to count.
  • Bought a large number of magazines.
  • Read a ridiculous amount of magazine and newspaper articles about Michael Jackson.
  • Gone shopping for my dorm room.
  • Learned that the Quiet Game (with the promise of stickers and/or lollipops to the winners) works WONDERS when trying to tame young children.
That's about it. Maybe more later?
