Update on Life - September 2010

It's been too long...

Although I've been theoretically taking a "year off," these past nine months or so have been anything but a vacation. At the very beginning of my gap year I didn't have a job and had only one regular commitment (besides meals). Now, at the final stretch of summer before I pack up and leave for college, I have a full-time job and my "free-time" is filled with running errands, going to baseball games and swim meets, rehearsals, picnics with friends, and trying to stay out of trouble (which usually means staying out of the kitchen).

To give you a glimpse into what a gap year can look like, here is one snapshot from each month of year.


Went down to North Carolina for a fantastic Labor Day weekend at my aunt and uncle's beautiful lake house (how do you like the kitchen?), then spent the rest of the month working volunteering for a grass-roots PAC doing various things like film a short documentary, plan a fundraiser, and coordinate meetings with students to collect information on candidates running for election in our county. Other notable events were seating auditions for the youth orchestra I'm in, participating in speech classes and I got my first computer! (a MacBook!!! Grad present from Grandma...)

October and more to follow soon...
