First of all, I want to apologize for not writing in a long time. It just seems life has overwhelmed me. Now that school is winding down I have some major decisions to make. Like where to work? Where am I going to live? Where am I going to golf? Lets break this down one by one.
Where am I going to work? Recently I got the RHD (Resident Hall Director) in the Freshman dorm and in the summer I can live in the RHD apartment, which has a full kitchen, or I can go home. Lets look at the positive and negatives of each. Positives of going home, I will be able to see my family, my old friends, I don't have to cook, I will be able to see Camila on more weekends, I will be able to go on vacation with my fam, I will be able to see more Cubs games on TV. Negatives, I have to pack and move home, actually do work,
Positives for staying in Minot: Better learn how to survive on my own, go tanning on the roof with Noel, go golfing at a harder course. Negatives: Cooking.
Last summer I worked at Odney Advertising and it looks to be about 50/50 if I will work there again this summer. I would love to work there again, they challenged me to be creative and taught me what a real life job is like. If I don't work there I don't know if I should go back to Mandan or stay here in Minot find a second job and be a summer RHD. My teacher says I should make a resume tape from all of the weather casts I have done and send them to KXMC and KMOT in Minot. I feel like I am fully prepared to take the next step, but my teacher does. If anyone knows of any other jobs please let me know.
Life is full of rough decisions and I think I am at a cross roads now. It is scary and causing my to be out of my comfort zone. I think I am going through life lesson 101. BE PREPARED TO TAKE RISKS. I am not sure what I will do or where I will be but I need to have faith and work hard at whatever I do.
