Well, I had a bunch of posts lined up, but couldn’t get the internet to work last night, so they’re all picture-less. In the meantime, I wanted to ask all of you how your summers were. This was probably one of the most fulfilling summers of my life, where it felt like the good things were all wrapped up nicely.
This summer, I am grateful for:
~The fact that my 5-summer streak of camp left me with a sense of peace and happiness
~Being able to room with my best friend, and realizing she’s the ultimate roommate. Ever.
~The feeling of contentment you get from making new friends and keeping in touch with them
~The opportunity to intern in Taiwan
~The important lesson that sometimes, when a certain annoying high-tech printer isn’t working, a few well-placed kicks can get it running again
~My first paycheck! So I worked as an unpaid intern this whole month-and-a-half, but they ended up paying me for my work at the event. It’s more of a symbolic paycheck than anything else, since I made…let’s just say I would have made considerably more cash babysitting, but it was still pretty exciting for me. I think I’m going to use the money to buy my mom the bag she’s had her eye on.
~Friends that help me improve my Chinese by commenting on my blog. And take me to yummy Sukiyaki places
~The gorgeous makeup that exists in Taipei (although this is more of a mixed blessing than anything else)
~All my readers, and a double thank you to those who take the time to leave comments
Now I tag all of you! What were you grateful for this summer, in short, what were the highlights? You don’t have to do this if you don’t want to, but please let me know if you do. I’d love to read your responses :D
