Start of "Summer"

Tuesday, May 20, 2008

Well, I've been home for about a week now. I've also been sick for about two weeks now. I finally got to the doctors to find out I had strep. Turns out I had strep all through finals, too. Oops. I've been on amoxicillin for 6 days now and my throat it still not getting any better so I'm probably going to have to call them up tomorrow to make sure I'm not dying. I got my grades back for this semester, A, A-, A-, B+, B. Still no word on my Russian grade... I'm sure I could have done better but taking six class was a bad idea and I will know to never again do it in the future.

I still haven't found a job. I've applied to a couple of places around Dracut that have all seemed really eager and needed people to work but none of them have gotten back to me yet. I feel like it's been forever since I've applied but I guess it's only been a week. I still really need a job if I intend to live in Europe for the next year. I just got my airfare bill. A round trip flight from Boston to London and then another flight to St. Petersburg is only $620!! The surcharge/taxes/gas add on another $480 of course. Gas prices are getting ridiculous. When I started driving (only 4 years ago) gas was at $1.17. It's now at $3.77. I remember last month freaking out when they jumped to $2.25. This can't go on forever. I can't even apply to jobs up in Nashua (where there are plenty of jobs to be found) because I would use my entire paycheck on gas to get up there. Until I get an actual job I'll be working on a quilt that my aunt asked me to make. I used to taking sewing lessons a long time ago. I think I was in 4th grade or something? I made some really nice things but my aunt seemed to think that I still have some skill in me... I kind of doubt it. It took me a good half hour just to get my sewing machine into working condition.

The weather has been pretty crappy. I've spent most of the break reading or at the gym. Today was fairly warm but it's been so windy out. We tried to have a bonfire last night but we had a few close scares with flames too close to trees. This weekend is Memorial Day weekend so of course I'll be camping. I can't wait. Smelling the fire last night made me want to camp so badly. It's also supposed to warm up so I'm hoping to attempt a tan.

Well I'm going to go wander around the house looking for something to do. Maybe I will actually start that quilt now that my machine is working...
