I have been so busy lately, it's bizarre. Somehow 30-40-hour work weeks, visits from both sets of parents and their significant others, and the emergence of my social life all happened within the same two weeks. What up? It's nice having friends to spend time with, and exploring new parts of the U.P. with family--and some parts of the U.P. I've seen before, but it's just nice to be out of the city and completely ensconced in nature. Not that Marquette isn't ensconced...there was another bear sighting last week in town--eek! I saw my first bear in the wild two days ago, camping with my mom.
But this summer is a beautiful whirlwind, even if I haven't had time to do some work with the women's center like I wanted to. I'm trying to have as much fun and relax as much as I can, because come August, I'm going to be stretched thin and completely overwhelmed again, once I start student teaching. I'm getting all I can out of this summer.
