Look at this.
Hi, summer is good.
I just wrapped up my first full-time-not-part-time job at a hearing aid company and let me tell you. I worked from 7 to 3, which meant I had to get up at 6ish to make the half hour drive. Literally every single time I drove that stretch, I thought to myself, “wow, this is the infamous morning commute.” It was a whole new world, man. Morning radio shows? Morning traffic? Sunrise? Going to work? These are the things moms and dads deal with, not nocturnal, web-addicted collegefolk. My brief slice of the real world was sharp and uh, refreshing. I learned a lot though, both about the engineering behind hearing aids and the mechanics behind my sleep cycle. Overall, quality experience.
Now I’m back on campus shooting photos for university communications and blogging for UTB. Employment feels really good because it lets me ignore my GPA for a while and serves as a strong piece of evidence when I’m convincing myself that I’m valuable to society. Brown and Folderson doesn’t mind either.
Things I’m currently excited about:
- red velvet ice cream in the freezer
- new camera
- 4th of July in Philly
- Germany vs France
- season 6 of Community
- Smash 4
- getting this overdue post up
