So it has been a while, and that is probably an understatement. I feel like I do the same thing day after day with no time to do what I really want. Is this what having a job is like? At 7 I wake up to get ready for another awesome day of summer school, sit in traffic for a trillion hours, and then spend all day in San Marcos till I return home around 7:30. Since my bedtime tends to hoover around 9 this leaves time to eat and take the dogs out. So naturally I have absolutely nothing of substance to share with you.This is my attempt:
Over the fourth of July Holiday, I went up to Chester, CA, which is located in the Northern California Mountains. I promise to post lots of pictures when I get a chance to breathe. Matt and I did tons of cowboy activities like Camp (in a luxurious cabin), Fish (caught nothing), and Horseback ride (that makes you sore). I had such a relaxing time though. People that live there must love life, no traffic, no noise, just the smell of pine trees.
In one of my classes we learn about certain niches to market to which translates to Hispanics and Blacks. Although as you know I am only half Black people's comments surprise me. Today this guy David called out a particular brand aimed at the Black majority and said "Do they even make expensive clothing." Now of course I don't know what he meant, and I am always quick to go on the defensive, but I have realized how little I know of other cultures and exactly how hard it must be to understand them. Not everyone will understand what it means to be mixed and I will never know how it feels to be anything else. The class could be extremely interesting but the professor tends to ramble and talk about the same stuff over and over like most old people :) (kidding)
Yesterday for mutual which is the youth group , we took the beehives (group for girls aged 12-14) to the pool. I thought I would be able to relax and study for a major test, but boy was I wrong. Those girls were dragging me in by my feet as soon as I got there. I am so thankful for those girls and their ability to make everyone have fun, and be included. We played categories in the pool, a game I haven't played to middle school! Those girls are so cute! I am so lucky to get to teach them and learn from them and even horse around with them. I mean let's be honest I might as well be a 12 year old girl.
Lastly, I am sitting in a study room at school jamming out to Colbie Calliet's new album. If anyone was wondering the study rooms at Texas State have amazing acoustics. I hope no one can hear me attempt to sing at the top of my lungs. I should probably get out of here and allow some dedicated student in here.
Promise I won't take so long to write again!
