Apologies for straying from my schedule. Life has been nutso this summer, but in a very good way.
My new internship rocks so far. I am basically leading the effort to design an institutionalized (read: consistent) orientation program at a community college. I’ve been doing a lot of foundational work, looking at other two-year college models, identifying which populations are being served, and designing some preliminary pieces like slideshows and proposal documents. It calls for a lot of independent work, and so far, I’ve felt pretty energized. It will take me a bit longer than originally planned, but I have plenty of adventures planned for the weekends.
Speaking of adventures, I traveled back down to Portland this Sunday to meet up with a crew of friends from Cadiz, Spain. It was so good to catch up, even briefly, with quality people. It was also good to watch my British friend fumble his way through Big Buck Hunter. USA!
An unintended side effect of the PDX trip: I got hooked on Entourage, thanks to the efforts of one particular person. I also discovered I am not that allergic to said person’s kitty-cat. I’m also sore from helping haul a shelving unit up three flights of stairs; I’m so badly out of shape.
There’s a lot going on right now. I have a summer wedding to attend in Port Orchard next weekend and a trip to SoCal at the end of that following week. It’ll be good to see more faces I haven’t seen in awhile.
Lastly, push me to start training hard. I’m racing in the PDX Race for the Cure 5K, and I would like to not fail badly. I’m eating a bit better and being mindful to walk more, but I need to hit the gym, as well as get some tape for my arches and hit the pavement.
There’s recent life in a nutshell. More goodies to come.
