Dare I say it?

{A snapshot from River Trip '11}

Soooo... no one kill me for saying this or sounding ungrateful but... I'm so over summer.

Get outta here. Sayonara.

My teacher friends go back to work tomorrow. It's a little weird, not gonna lie. I found myself starting to freak out a little bit last week about the job situation. I've got some things in the works so I HOPE something works out! Because starting tomorrow I should technically be working and not bumming around.

I never cease to amaze myself at my ability to create a set schedule and an unending to-do list, even during my summer of no real responsibilities. Every morning my alarm goes off and I roll out of bed to take the dog on a 3 mile run. Immediately following, I make a trip to Sonic and order a delicious cherry vanilla coke. After that it's chores and lunch and then a couple of hours at the pool. After the pool it's time for errands and more chores and finally dinner. And then I do it again the next day. And again. And again. And then I start to hate the predictability of everything and the fact that I haven't had time to read or write a single blog OR catch up on any of my shows. I literally do not EVER sit down on the couch during the day.

What is WRONG with me!?

This, my friends, is exactly what I was afraid of right before summer began. A nagging to-do list that is even worse than when I have a day job. Every time I tell someone that I've been busier now that I haven't been going to work than when I was, I get blank stares.

I know I sound like a total freak but I cannot wait to have a real purpose in life again. So if you wouldn't mind, please pray that one of these jobs is going to work out for me. Thanks loves!
