Oh goodness, it’s been so long! I am obviously still alive, thankfully! It’s summer, today is the official first day of summer and I have been home from college for about a month. The 23 will mark the first month that I’ve been in the country, because Jack and I and a group of people traveled to Europe! We were in Paris and London, and because it was a course through the university, we had some work to do. Our classes consisted of everyone in the group lecturing on famous art works, while we stood in front of them in the museums. We were in the Louvre, then the Orsay, and then the Tate Britain, the Tate Modern, and the National Gallery. I lectured on both my pieces in Paris, and they were successful.
Jack lectured on two sculptures by Michelangelo, the Bound and Dying Slaves, and then he did a piece by da Vinci, Virgin of the Rocks. He is a man after my own heart. ❤ I did pieces by Ingres and Manet, and they were stunning. It’s safe to say that Jack and I conducted successful lectures, and while I lectured, strangers around the museum joined in. It was wonderful. On our free days, we explored Paris and ate crepes, and it got so crazy in London. A group of girls, Jack and another boy and I all went to this club for dinner and drinks. It was so fun.
There was tons of shopping done in both cities, I treated myself to pandora charms in both cities, one is an Eiffel Tower and the other charm is Big Ben. They are lovely. I must say I enjoyed London a little more, London I felt was cleaner, and Paris was hard to navigate due to the language barrier. We were in London during the Manchester bombing and it was absolutely heart wrenching to hear about. There was also a stabbing outside our hotel. It was an adventure.
So for the rest of my summer, I am working 2 jobs, I’m still at the grocery store, but I am now a security guard as a gas well, I work 12 hour shifts, 7am-7pm. I normally just sit and watch netflix. It’s pretty great.
Jack is still a CNA during the summer, and I try to go visit him once a month during the summer. He’s doing well, and he helped me get my driver’s license. So yes, I’m legal to drive.
This summer is gonna be pretty boring. I’m looking at going to the beach with my sister and Jack. It will be great.
It’s gonna be a great summer.
