The week in review

This week's lesson:  a three day work week is good, even if it is hectic.  Last weekend (Saturday until Tuesday) I was in Memphis visiting a couple of friends there.  It was very enjoyable and relaxing not having to be in Vicksburg with nothing to do, even if we really didn't go and do anything amazing while I was up there.  It was nice meeting new people and generally chit chatting about nothing.  I think we might have to start making this a regular occurrence while we aren't in school, but next time they're driving four hours and spending over $50 on gas for their drive.  I will say, though, that the money for gas was easily made up for in all the free food.  Thanks again Ms. King. 


Yesterday at work I had to lead a web cast.  I've been planning it all week, all of three days.  (It really is good only having to work 24 hours but get paid for 40.)  It's the first time that I've ever had to be the one in charge of a meeting here.  It was a learning experience.  And I think it went very well, even though I was a bit long winded; I talked for an hour and a half.  But I feel really cool now, a milestone in my working life, even though I have no intention of working there after college. 


I learned how to tango last night.  I'm not very good, mostly because I'm a 20 year old white guy, but I think it'll definitely earn me some points when I tell girls I can though.  Hopefully, no one I ever tell that to will happen to have a cd of music on them.  But I do wish I had a Brazilian supermodel laying around so I could practice.  


I have less than a month of summer left, and as of the first of the month, we are half way through the year.  I'm only 20; time shouldn't be going by this quickly.  At least I only have ten work days left, and after that I will revel in having two weeks to do as I please.  I'm looking forward to it.
