Sleepy Monday

Source:  weheartit
I can't believe it's August already!  How did that happen???  The summer's almost over and I didn't even get to enjoy it.  In two days, it'll be a month since my father passed away.  In some ways, it seems like it just happened and in other ways, it seems like forever ago...

My event Friday night went well for the most part.  I was annoyed when I showed up because there were a group of girls sitting in my area working on another project so I couldn't set up for awhile.  Also, I was told I'd have 4 tables to use for a display but they only gave me two.  The music was messed up at the beginning of my ceremony but otherwise went well.  I felt better about this year's ceremony than last years.

The committee heads' gave me a blown up photo of my dad taken a few years ago.  I was really touched!  He's looking away so you can't really see his face but I can tell it's him.  I think I'm going to hang it in my computer room since I hang out there a lot and will see it regularly.

The whole night, I kept thinking about how happy I was that this was almost over.  When I got home and was unpacking everything to put it all away, I was thinking about how I really didn't enjoy helping out this year at all.  And then, oddly, a strange and VERY strong feeling came over me that I'm not done yet - that I need to do this for another year!  Ugh!  I don't need to decide right now if I'll come back next season or not so I'll see how I feel when the time comes.

I officially declared a major this weekend - Business and Economics with a minor in Political Science.  Hopefully that'll get me a cushy government job or something.  At the dinner party I attended last week, I met a guy who told me that if I play my cards right, I could potentially make more $$$ than a doctor!  Works for me!  School starts up in just three weeks.

I have some thank you cards to write this afternoon and then I'll be making the bloggy rounds.  Tonight I'm going to see The Zookeeper and tomorrow I'm headed to the zoo!

What a thoughtful thing for the committee to do!

Bet it feels good to have declared a major.

In many ways this summer seems to have flown by, but this heat just seems to go on and on forever.

Glad you've decided on a major! Very exciting. I am sure the photo of your dad looks good next to the computer too. Hope you're able to make up your mind about the committee work again soon!

A very nice touch of the committee member to give you a photo of your dad... i am sure you will treasure it.

A major in business is very good. Lots of work and you COULD make more money than a doctor one day :)

have a wonderful day ahead.

I can't believe that it's August either. Time has been going by so fast. It sounds like you have a good plan. I hope you do end up making more than a doctor.
