Summer is almost over...

I guess I'll take this opportunity to update you on how my summer has come and gone.

Here's the list of things I said I would do:
1. Take a couple classes: ASL, French, Statistics
-->didn't happen! I borrowed some Learn French CD's but they proved to be too advanced for my beginner abilities. I arranged ASL lessons with a friend every Thursday night but that often got overlooked although I now know how to say some basic things like hello, how are you, i'm fine/good/bad/happy/excited/sad/tired/hungry/sleepy, i love you, good morning, how, who, where, when, why, and maybe a few others that I can't recall at the moment. I intend on auditing a stats class in the fall.
2. Work full time
-->YEP! A lot of this! I worked 32 hours a week (M-Th 9-5) June 1-August 14. I was the "Jill of All Trades" for the summer doing all sorts of things from organizing a closet full of science equipment worth more than my life, converting Lonely Planet VHS tapes to DVD's, gave tours of the campus, grant writing, etc. I also did a lot of fun things like work on a script for an infomercial about Ohlone's GIS/GPS program, teach a couple human ecology classes, helped out with some major events. Don't get me wrong I had a lot of fun and I learned a great deal but I will be glad once it's over.
3. Go on some trips:
river rafting-->done!
hike more mountains-->only hiked Mission Peak once more
Mendocino-->went there maybe 2 times and will be going again in 2 weeks for a wine festival!
Yosemite Nat'l park-->nope...but I went to Muir Woods :)
4. Watch Wicked-->going to be 3 times by the end of this summer, I highly recommend it!
5. Catch up on reading all my books!-->that's a slow and steady process

Other than this, I will be going camping one more time and returning the day before classes start, I got to spend more time with my family and friend especially my brother who is going away for college in September (Cal Poly SLO), and I will be celebrating my birthday at the end of this month.

I hope your summer was well spent :) But it's not over yet!!!
