summertime

This summer has treated me very nicely, despite a few bumps in the road concerning The Boy. But even that got sorted out this weekend, leaving me with a good two weeks left to enjoy and wind down.

Earlier this summer I expected to have found an internship or at least a more full-time job. I found neither and ended up being very grateful for that. I think subconsciously I needed this summer to be completely relaxed and enjoyable, since it was my "last" summer. After this school year, I will hopefully be working full time at an accounting firm somewhere (fingers crossed).

In exactly two weeks I go back to school. It seems like the summer has flown by, because it has. I did so many fun things and had so many new experiences that I can't even begin to recount all of them. Of course, many were cataloged here in this blog, which is one of my main reasons for blogging. I love to go back on a stressful night during the school year, or even a laid-back afternoon in the summer, and read all my old blog entires.

As I mentioned above, The Boy and I have worked things out completely now. We both realized what everyone around us probably knew - that starting and maintaining a relationship knowing full well it would be semi-long-distance was an awful idea. On top of that, he's now realized that the intense stress he was under regarding MCATs was spilling over more than once into the relationship. So here's where we stand now: we're calling it "friends with interest," which basically means taking it back to friendship until we get to spend more time together in person back at school. Then we'll see where it goes from there. And honestly? For the first time since all the issues started popping up between us, I feel unbelievably relieved.

These next two weeks are probably going to fly by just as quickly as the rest of the summer, so I'm going to milk them for every enjoyable moment that I can.

I'm glad you were able to work things out with The Boy and hopefully, your relationship will stay strong, as friends or otherwise.

Having a full time job is not as great as one might think.

Are you going to cut your hair? Did you do it already? I'll be interested to find out how it turns out :)
