A stream of conciousness update
The semester is almost done. Did you just feel that wind blow? That was my sigh of relief. I am so very burned out and so very ready for summer to come along and say "hi". That is, except for the fact that I don't have a job yet.
This no job predicament seems to be the function of two things, 1) I really haven't had the mental energy to go chasing after internships and selling myself and 2) I really don't know what I want to do with the rest of my life. Now I guess the latter could actually be beneficial in the sense that I could really do anything this summer and not feel as if I wasted my time with something that won't be transferable to my post-graduation career. Along that line of reasoning perhaps I will persue a position selling red dogs at Fenway. 30 Red Sox games for free this summer? Man that beats being the understudy of a senior loan officer with a community development financial institution any day.
I am not completely worried yet though. My life seems to be a last minute kind of life. Everything is always last minute. Honestly, everything....I have some papers that I am supposed to be finishing up for tomorrow right now. Guess what? I'm not, I am writing on Blogger instead. Hah, take that on-time people (as I stick my thumbs in my ears and wiggle my fingers in a sign of derision). Anyways, the last minute things seems to be working okay so far. And it provides a certain level of comfort too.
I do have a place to live though. I will be back in the ol' "22", which is exciting. As long as I don't get my ass shot, that is. Just kidding it will be fine. I think.
So, job or no job, I will be back into Boston for the summer on June 30. Although, I am pretty bad at keeping in touch with people in general so that will probably be a surprise to friends that I have still living there. (Sidenote - "Hi Boston friends, sorry for not keeping in touch better I am moving back into town soon"-end of sidenote).
About those paper's that I am editing: I really should return to that.
I hope to report that I am gainfully employed soon, but in the interim please let me know if you have any leads on working with an agency that is doing good community development related things in the Boston area.
