Summer can be so deceiving. At the beginning, it seems as if you have an endless amount of time to do all of the things you could ever imagine doing. Then you realize you’re halfway through and you’ve accomplished nothing. I like to call this the “mid(summer) life crisis,” and I have one annually.
Mid(summer) Life Crisis 2010 is officially underway. I just got this awesome job at an art summer program that will greatly increase my summer income. It’s only two weeks long, but it’s forcing me to realize that I’ve accomplished very little on my list. Especially in the wedding category. I just feel lost. Like I don’t know what the first step is. I know I should call the venue… but what do I need to ask them? How do I decide? I just need to buck up and do something. The first step is always hard, but I’m working on it.
Let’s focus on what I have done. I took a trip to the beach with my mom. I’ve celebrated my brother’s graduation, and attended my fourth graduation party today. And I’ve worked. A lot. But I’ve made a lot of money, and let’s face it, that’s a big step in the wedding department. Also, I like my jobs. I’ve enjoyed working. I’ve hung out with Brian, with my friends, and with my family. I’ve gone on many walks and watched a lot of TV. I ran a 5k. It’s been a good summer so far, and it’s okay if I don’t get to finish everything. I think.
Life is good. Sorry if I got an annoying song stuck in your head!
