Recapping Summer 2016

Summer of 2016

I have been obsessed with Sunflowers lately. Aren’t they just gorgeous?

Summer 2016 is swiftly coming to a close for those of us who are in school. This is the last stress free week for us college students before we head back into long lectures, tight deadlines, late nights at the library, stalking  the professors, sleepless nights and endless coffee. Before that happens, I wanted to give a quick update of what has been happening over here on the Katscript base for the summer of 2016.

Summer 2016 went by pretty quickly if I must say so myself. However, that may be due to the fact that for 7 weeks I was in summer school. I decided to attend  school, to get some of my classes out of the way, since I am applying to nursing schools in the fall, and had to have a number of classes already completed before I sent out my applications. So the summer semester seemed like a good time to get a few classes out of the way. I took two major sciences, both of which have labs. It was seven weeks of torture. I will definitely discuss this in another post about taking summer classes.

This summer I also started working as a Certified Nursing Assistant at a major hospital here in Atlanta. I had to be trained for 8 weeks. Six of these weeks fell in the same weeks of summer school!!! The torture continues. I was doing all this while still working my nanny job four days a week. There were weeks were I worked 80 hours and 7 days a week. While still having to make time for tons of reading, homework and other projects that were due EVERY week while in school. Let me tell you, this was not fun!!

While all this was going on, I completely forgot that my lease was ending, and ended up having to move while all this was going on. A few moving posts will be coming soon.

There were a few good things that happened this summer. One of them was that I took a vacation – my first in a while. I took a 7-day vacation and stopped in 4 cities. There will be quite a few posts on all the cities I visited.

I am excited for the fall semester. I am excited for Thanksgiving – MAJOR trip coming up. I am excited for all the exciting things that will be happening here on Katscript. Guys – I have enrolled myself in a photography class. My first class is this week and I am sooooo excited!!

Okay, I need to finish packing for my last stop tomorrow on this world wind tour of the US.

How did you spend your summer, did you do anything fun?

    sounds like a really productive summer! I got nominated for a design competition so this summer has been a long, busy one. But definitely some great relax moment in between!
