Has it really been a year since I last wrote a post?
I wrote the previous post sitting on the futon in our one bedroom apartment looking out our deck doors at the highway that ran alongside the apartment complex. I’m writing this one sitting at my grandparents’ old table with a newly refinished top in the kitchen of our 3 Bedroom, 1 Bath house nestled in a lovely, little quiet neighborhood.
May 11th, 2013 came and went, and I’m now a college graduate with a pretty degree in a green folder. (Most expensive piece of paper, ever.)
I’m job hunting now and I’m learning that there are worse things than being ‘almost’ done with college. I had senioritis something awful this spring and now I understand why some people stay in school for years. Right now, I’ve thought to myself I would go back as long as I could do it for free. Job hunting is just not fun, there is an unknown element to it that makes it much more stressful and frustrating than I could’ve imagined. I trust that God has something great planned for me but the lesson in patience is a hard one. I’ve currently decided to let it go for a bit and just try to enjoy the time I have at home (I’ll work all my life, right?) but that’s easier said than done for a person with my personality.
I’ve opted for projects and reading to take over my time. I refinished the top of a table last week, and I have more odds and ends things that I found at my aunt and grandparents’ houses that will occupy my time. The only other thing I wish I knew more about is general shop techniques, my quarter of wood shop in 8th grade will only get me so far. Had I known Pinterest would come along and give me so many ideas. I probably would have taken wood shop every year of high school, but alas I didn’t.
In the evenings about 4 nights a week I’m a server at a local pizza place. I’ve learned so many lessons as a server that could be a post in its self (it might be one day). For the most part I love it but there are a few things I’m not a big fan of. It’s mostly the fact that everyone’s schedule is the opposite of mine, when they are working during the day, I’m not and when they’re off and want to do things, I’m at work. It’s kind of terrible if you want to have a social life but my coworkers are pretty awesome people so I manage.
