This summer has been my first "go-go-go" summer. With my new job/position I was stressed and tired pretty much everyday of the summer. I was always worrying about the next thing: staffing concerns, camper concerns, if the activity tomorrow would work, if it wouldn't and so on and so on. I don't think I've lived with so much stress hormone output before. Last night while driving some work friends home, one mentioned that going back to school is like his summer "break". Because this summer was definitely no vacation.
Now that I only have 5.5 days left of living at the home base in London (Ontario...don't get too excited), I am finally getting sick of it. Which is a big feat from last year when I was ready to go back to school in June. It's a very different atmosphere and living environment being at home. I go from having every responsibility at school, waking up myself, finding a way to school, and I get to go whenever I want without justifying myself. At home, I don't do that much around the house cause it's home (which is pretty bad I know), I have to tell my mom where I am all the time and explain myself when I want to wear a certain outfit or hang out at a certain time. It's that funny time in life when I am no longer a child but I guess I'm not an adult either. I find this WAY more frustrating than being a teenager in high school. I think this is the first time I can see and feel a clear STAGE in my life while I am living it. Which may indeed be a good thing since I can work on it as it's happening instead of realizing it years down the road. If you know what I mean. And now that I'm thinking about I feel like I need a new ADVENTURE. What could that be? I have no clue, but I will work on it. You work on it too.
