Now that my summer is officially over for me, it's been a long 4 months. The summer has brought laughter, tears, and a lot of memories. This summer hasn't been the most eventful but it's taught me so much.
Thank you, summer, for teaching me how to be a hard worker and an employee. This was the first time I was able to work and get paid for it. It was definitely a whole new experience. Waking up early when it was my summer was hard to adjust to, and missing out on being able to go places was a tough pill to swallow. But it worked out in the end because I was able to spend money on things I wanted, which was rare because I barely get to do that.
Although 4 months is long for summer, I'm glad it was, because it enables me to readjust to my new home. I did not like living there at all, but I've met so many wonderful people. And it was really hard leaving my new home--harder than I expected.
I'd also like to thank summer for bringing new people into my life. Thank you, people of Gonzales for welcoming me into your small town with open arms. I've never met a community close like that. Which something that I'm going to miss when I'm back at school.
And a small thank you, summer, for:
The country concerts.
Bringing the corner house into my life.
Quick lunches at my Tio and Tia's house in between work.
Spanish lessons from my children at work.
All the homemade food by my mom and dad.
"Big Brother" and "Friends" marathons
And simply for family memories that will last a lifetime.
