Life's been real good lately. Busy, but fulfilling and content! For a while there it seemed as if everything was going wrong but I suppose life wouldn't be so good if there weren't bad times to compare the good times to. I always seem to experience the highest of highs and the lowest of lows, never anything in between. I went through high school with barely any relationship drama but then right when I got out of it, BAM, a bazillion drama llama's fell upon my relationships with my friends. I had to step back and have lots of alone time to figure things out for the time being and needless to say I'm still piecing things back together. Job wise, I haven't been getting many shifts so I thought it would be good to explore some other options to fill my time with and I decided on volunteering at the local Arts Council with the children day camps that they host (5-12 year olds). I've been working there on and off on all the days I don't work at the grocery store, and this next week I'm working the full 5 days. There's nothing I don't love about the job. Maybe it's my inner kid coming out and thinking back onto the time when I first went to camp, or just my love for kids and/or helping out with an organization of awesome people, I don't know. Anyhow, I don't think I've been more exhausted (but a great exhausted) in my life before.
One thing I couldn't live without is dancing. I went dancing with a friend last saturday and had the most amazing time! I think this coming year when I move out of the country and into the city (my brother and I found a great place, super cheap too!) I'll try to take a dance class or two. Yesterday I headed out to my friends house and his backyard is this amazingly calm lake. We swam, hot-tubbed, and talked all night long. Earlier tonight I went on a bike ride among the grass and canola fields and breathed in the humid air and listened to the chirping crickets. Thank goodness its finally nice outside!
