While everyone was getting out of town and savouring every last bit of summer, Jon and I hung around town and just did whatever. Friday night, he went out for drinks while I stayed home to write. Saturday morning, I slept in while he had brunch with a couple of friends. We also went to church, and hung out with our good friend, Andy, and his girlfriend. Sunday, we picked up croissants at Yann Haute in Mission and strolled over to Phil’s for coffee where we spent the afternoon working on our laptops. Then dinner with family. Monday consisted of lazing around, watching season one of Happy Endings, afternoon catnaps, and Chinese takeout.
It seems as though we wasted away the last summer long weekend, but trust me, we’ve made the most of summer with bike rides, walks, ice cream at Village, patio drinks with friends, brunch with friends, dinner with friends, music festivals, Stampede, cabin getaways, road trips, and EUROPE. We are all summered out.
School officially started today, but lectures start next Monday. I’m gonna tour campus tomorrow, and then I have a graduate orientation to attend on Friday. I’ve been looking forward to this moment ever since I started my undergrad, and I still can’t believe this day has finally come. I’m nervous, excited, but most of all, ready.
As for funemployment, let me tell you there’s nothing fun about being unemployed. I have my good days where I’m hopeful and determined. But there are other days, many in fact, where I feel completely scared and desperate. Will share more in a separate post.
I’m also finally getting around to writing about Europe. In case you’re wondering, I’m back dating the posts for archiving reasons. Keep an eye out for our last three destinations. I have a lot of other things I want to write about, so between starting school and writing cover letters, if time permits, I will do my best to actually follow through.
Here’s to my favourite month of the year and to September babies everywhere!
