I’m sorry—it’s already (practically) May?! This year is going by soooo fast.
April is the last full month of the semester; classes end this Friday, and then there are finals next week. I’ve had a few people ask if I have the summers off. I don’t, but it’s a valid question. We’ll get summer hours at the end of May until August; we’ll get out at 4:00 p.m. instead of 4:30 p.m.
Last week there were a few fun events that happened on campus. The first was a kite festival, and it ended up being a beautiful day to fly some kites. The second was the food trucks last Thursday as part of the pre-event for the spring concert.
I got a grilled cheese with bacon and dill pickles and an Oreo cannoli. Both were SO good. There was also a baked potato truck, Korean truck, Irish pub food truck, and a sandwich truck, which I got a smoothie from later, because we went back a second time.
My mom joked and asked if I actually was in my office at all last week. It’s my not fault my job involves attending really fun events. Those Instagram stories aren’t going to post themselves.
I’m scooping every weekend, normally working Saturday nights and Sundays during the day. I probably won’t have a day off from either job until Memorial Day weekend, which is also when my 25th birthday is.
I haven’t been running as much as I’d like, maybe only once a week. The weather is so up and down here since it’s spring, so it’s hard to run outside consistently. At least I have the indoor track on campus.
I’M GOING TO A RED SOX GAME IN TWO WEEKS.
YA GIRL IS GOING TO FENWAY!
After finals week, the graduating seniors have “Senior Week” and one of the days they’re going to a Sox game. They had to purchase a certain amount of tickets, so they opened up some to faculty and staff. Me and three other people from my office are going to the May 14th game against the Rockies. We’ll have bleacher seats, but I honestly don’t care because I haven’t been to Fenway in two years. I’m so excited to go 🙂
What I’ve Watched on Netflix/TV
Netflix: Still watching Arrested Development. I made it to the fourth season, which was part of the re-boot they did on Netflix. It’s a little different than the first three seasons, but I’m giving it a chance.
TV: The Bold Type, Law & Order: SVU, NCIS, Whiskey Cavalier, and New Amsterdam. I recorded The Village and The Fix on my DVR; I haven’t started watching them yet. I have the habit of seeing previews of upcoming shows and then recording them and not remembering what they’re about.
What I’ve Been Reading
- Good Riddance by Elinor Lipman: 1 star
- My Favorite Half-Night Stand by Christina Lauren: 5 stars
- The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger: currently reading
- Landfall by Thomas Mallon: currently reading
- Shortest Way Home: One Mayor’s Challenge and a Model for America’s Future by Pete Buttigieg: currently reading but almost done and will give it 5 stars
Yeah, you can see how my life is going since I’m currently reading three books at once. That’s what I get for trying to read a book I own, then go to the library because I haven’t been there in a week, and then putting a book on hold at the library.
I finallymade an appointment to get my eyes checked and get new glasses. The last time I went to Target Optical was two years ago, and with my new insurance, I can get an eye exam every two years. I’d like to keep a style similar to what I have now.
