So it’s August, my summer is almost over and I can’t believe how its flown by. Honestly, I’d have to say that this was one of the most fun summer’s I’ve ever had. This summer I’ve:

  • Jimmy Buffett concert with my sisters and Patti (my former boss)
  • fixed my slice
  • gone to Duck Beach
  • stayed single
  • got called as an FHE Ward leader
  • hung with my sisters
  • been to DC more times this summer than I’ve ever been in my life
  • visited Jeff and Melea in Kentucky
  • graduated from college
  • lost weight and gained some
  • discovered buffalo wings
  • made buffalo wings
  • ate a lot of buffalo wings
  • grew a beard
  • drove two people to the airport that won’t be returning
  • drove cross country
  • watched every episode of scrubs at least three times, every episode
  • gained new perspective

This year is far from over, and somehow, I feel like this has been one of the most influential years in my life. Somehow graduating from college ended the planned portion of my life. Now, life is much less about what you need to check off the list, and more about what you put on your list to do.

The last few weeks I’ve been frustrated at work with a lack of responsibilities and being nothing more than a trained ape. However, it took stepping up and asking my boss to review my position to get a new perspective and a new set of responsibilities. I’m excited about my outlook and excited about what’s left to come. It strange to realize how everything in my life now is unformed and undefined. Talking with friends, I see it in their words and in their eyes for the ones that don’t verbalize it.

So, a beard, a new sport, and a scrubs obsession just short of addiction, I’ve reached a new point in my life. Bring it.

Yeah, they kind of did. But I haven’t got the official nod yet.
