Reflecting on Summer

I can't believe it is September already! The countdown to school has started there are exactly eight days left until I start my senior year! Where did summer go? It feels like it was just the first day of summer vacation, clich√© I know, but really. This summer was definitely different from previous summers.

I got my first official job at Terra Nova, working in the garden of a school from seven in the morning until noon, Monday through Thursday. The job wasn't easy, but it also wasn't hard. The people I worked with made it a lot more bearable. For the first month, I had the job I worked for three hours then went to a math recovery class... yep... I failed math. Then for a month this summer every Saturday I was working at a blueberry field. This is the 4th summer I have been doing that.The first half of my summer was very busy as you can see.

Until about mid-July, I had no time to really go anywhere or do anything. Once work was over with I had time to visit with friends of mine and go places like the beach and the river. I also got time to Netflix binge, read, cook, run, and spend time with my sister. We went to Portland to explore a few times which is always fun. Throughout the whole summer, I have been going to dragon boating practice, our team is preparing for a race we have on the 12th and 13th of this month. Hopefully, all that work pays off.

Summer's been good, I guess this is what they call a busy summer. I wish I had more time to go exploring, but you don't always get your choice. I think I am about ready to see what the school year has in store for me.

♥,
Vanessa

  2. It sounds like you had a busy summer, but busy is what makes it fun, isn't it? I'm glad you got to relax before your senior year. TV shows have always made me wonder what it is like to attend high school, especially senior year of high school, in the USA. Good luck this year! Just a few months till graduation. You can do it! :)

    1. Busy can make it fun sometimes most the times it is good! Highschool is nothing like what they show on T.V. It's a lot less dramatic, can't wait until graduation but it's a while away! Have a good week!

  5. I always say I'm going to explore or relax or do something of the abnormal routine sort in the holidays, but it never really happens. I guess that just because school's over, that doesn't mean we don't have friends and work and all sorts of things to still keep us busy. We're also awfully lazy so the only thing checked off the list in our free time is Netflix.

    1. That's true! I guess that's just the way of life. One thing goes and a million other things pop up in replacement.

  8. It sounds as if you've had a busy yet enjoyable summer!

    Where has the time gone? It seems like just yesterday that I was leaving school with the aim to sleep for nearly two months, before eventual return.

    I definitely enjoyed my summer too; which was spent predominantly travelling, spending time with family, and preparing for next year.

    Next summer will be elongated by a month for me, with it being my final year of high school - and I hope to either find a job or attend an NCS programme.

    A lovely post!

    1. Summer always flies no matter what you do! Time doesn't stop, although at times I wish it would. Glad you had a good summer. Where did you travel? Have a great last year!

  9. I know!!! I can hardly believe that summer is practically over! I enjoyed mine even though I didn't go anywhere or do anything overly exciting. Its nice to just enjoy the seemingly ordinary! Ooh! Exploring some place sounds absolutely perfect!

    Yay for senior year! You got this, girl! *emoji fist pump*
