But I would not scare my pony on my boat out on the sea

Just a little note… the title is taken from a Lyle Lovett song, “If I had a Boat”… its really a great song… kind of plays to the happily morose side of me… and maybe to you, check it out.
Well, I’ve been one busy boy… in the previous two days I worked 28 hours straight, and if it weren’t for the loving grace of my friend (and fellow CA) Beth, I wouldn’t have eaten… she had heard that I had been working like a fiend, and she called me to see if she could help… it was really nice that someone was thinking about me. I hope the karma comes around and I’ll help it along to make sure it does.
Speaking of work, wow, are some people dumb. That’s all I have to say about that… dumb. I don’t really have a whole lot to speak of, the drama that is my life has seriously slowed to a monotonous jog and I like it… so far, I’m sure I’ll gripe about it later on though. I did how ever get good grades, not great grades, but good grades considering that I was working, at times, two jobs as well as taking close to a full load of credits, I’m proud of me for my 2 B+’s, 1 B-, and a C+… not that two of those classes were 400 level… so this isn’t remedial classes that I was participating in.
May I also note that MY RESIDENTS ARE GONE!!! I will miss some of them very much, but there are others I knew that I could never turn my back to them… and I can’t say I’m sad to see those people go. I hope the select few keep in contact with me down the road, because they were the very cool people that shinned through the bland sameness of the rest of the hall.
To help my next year be a little bit more interesting I’ve decided that I am going to try and get a job at the Child Center just down the block from here, I think it will be good for my mind just to hang out with some little kids… I know its a good job, and I think I would seriously have some fun.
…And finally, I have beach and staff banquet pictures… The beach trip page can be seen here… and the staff banquet pictures (its just me with my friends) can be seen here. Well, I am looking forward to working with Special Olympics conference that is under my direction… they will be here in two weeks, and I think that it will be a good experience, both in my job as a CA and for my mind. More at eleven.
