Wrapping up the school year. Graduating this Friday.
I’m looking forward to working all Summer long. I have goals to meet, places I want to be, people I want to see.
She’s so beautiful it hurts.
12 more school days. Almost there.
Be humble. It goes a long way.
Today, during a casual walk to class, a high school buddy of mine told me I was one one of the few others he hopes to keep in good contact with after grad. I tend to focus on the small things at the end of the day and that’s just something that stuck. I really appreciated the brief comment and I felt the same way. May 24th is the date we finish just a small chapter of our lives.
This coming up /summer, I got a small job with a couple of joes at a brand new Frozen Yogurt shop opening in town. It’s a completely different brand that is being structured into our small community. It’s currently under construction as of now, but the owners have included us in the developing process of the shop as spectators. It’s actually a very eye opening and inspirational occurrence that I’m so blessed to be apart of. Watching a business start from scratch and later seeing this scratch transfer into an idea and then soon onto blueprints was absolutely fascinating. The excessive amount of planning prior as well as the hard work and dedication was compelling. They knew it was risky but someone had to out a foot down and say “We have to do this and do this right.” We got to see the branding in complete motion. We were able to contribute personal thoughts on how we can represent the shop to the best of our ability. The owners listened to every word and just simply advised us to be down to earth and real. I love the way they think. There was so much to learn and I truly felt I was given the opportunity to be in the front row, watching a sweet middle-aged couple’s dream turn into reality. It was cinematic still in the making.
Recently we were able to come visit the shop in it’s architectural skeleton and subject ourselves to pure imagination to fill in the gaps. We hope to open up in the 1st week of May and I can barely sit still in my spinny chair just thinking about it. I’ll be unloading 1800 pounds of yogurt with some of my coworkers this Friday. We’ll be the first team ever to work in this new establishment and that in itself is a underlining privilege. It’s going to be an enjoyable couple of months and I’ll finally have some spare cash at my convenience.
Not sure what I’ll be doing a few months from then. All I know is I’ll be settling in Portland for further studies & ready to kick in gear with Engineering as well as exploring Oregon’s terrain for photographic opportunities. I love the rain but we’ll see how that attraction is affected after experiencing about 40 inches of it in all different forms within the year. I’m sure it’ll be fine…I hope.
Who does twitter? I’ll give you a follow.
COFFEE COFFEE COFFEE COFFEE.
I NEED SOME COFFEE TO HAVE ENOUGH ENERGY TO MAKE SOME MORE COFFEE.
I’m already thinking about the nap I’m going to take when I get home.
Spring allergies. It’s a terrible thing.
Looks like I’ll be working at a local frozen yogurt shop in town this summer.
Those times you reconnect with a long term friend and you’re able to pick up right where you left off.
