July 3, 2007
I've only been at the new job for a week and I'm already getting a day off for the Fourth of July. How sweet is that? I think I can already smell the barbeques lighting up around the neighborhood. Man, I love the summer.
Before I give you all the deets on my new job, I have to give a shout-out to Sindy for getting a sweet summer gig herself. Ha! That girl is so competitive. I swear that if I got a place on the next NASA mission, she'd already be on the space station when I got there. Nicely done Sindy! I expect a free surf rental next time I'm in California.
So my new summer job is hard work. Like, seriously hard work. The kids run around like maniacs, trying tricks they're not ready for and falling down all the time. The funny thing is that, while I'm normally not a huge fan of hard work (who is?), I really like going to work. The kids are really excited about skateboarding, which is cool, and the other instructors are nice. Most of them are a bit older than I am, but they don't treat me any different, which is cool.
I'm just trying to sort out plans for the Fourth of July now. My parents are having a barbeque, which I'll definitely stay at for a while (if I bail too quickly, my mom will freak), but then I might go to Ben's family's barbeque too. I think Vanessa is going to come to that too. What are you guys doing? !
