Wow, I am for the most part done with my time at Canterbury. Officially, I’m on the payroll until May 15th, and I’ve got a couple of things to wrap up before then, but for all intents and purposes I am done. It has been an interesting experience, these past nine months. I am definitely not where I thought I’d be going into it. However, I have no regrets about coming to LA for this opportunity. I’ve learned a lot about who I am, and what is important to me right now. I will miss hanging out with the students though. They are amazing in what they do and manage.
I’m still a little scared about what the next few months are going to look like. I have thankfully at least got a part-time job already. It’s 20 hours a week, working at a coffee shop. It may not be glamorous or anything, but I think I’m going to enjoy it. Now, I just need to find another part time job for the mornings. (I’ll be working 3.30 – 7:30 at the coffee shop.)
I move into my new apartment next Thursday. So the packing has begun. My books are all in boxes. I’ve got the other stuff in some sort of order. I just need to get a few more boxes…and I should probably cull some of the stuff from the closet. I’m really excited for the new apartment though. Since we aren’t planning on having a TV, we are going to have a big table in the Living Room, in order to host soon to be legendary dinner parties.
Not much else going on though, trying to spend as little money as possible until I figure out that second job. I did get to go over to a friends house last Friday and play Mario Kart on the Wii all afternoon. That brought back lots of good memories of Mario Kart on the N64 at the ECM House at the UofO. And thankfully, when my friends 11 yr old daughter got home from school, I had enough practice in that I didn’t get powned.
