Blast From the Past

June 3, 99

I’m so tired.  I worked all day then I swept the Cannon’s drive way.  It sucked.  My hands have blisters.  It’s okay though, it’s worth the free rent.  I didn’t really do anything tonight.  I was really tired.  Yesterday I went and saw Noting Hill with Adrien, Cassi, Anna, and Ethan.  It was good.  I liked it.  I got paid today.  It was like $400.  I get paid $6.20.  I’m glad.  That’s more than I expected.  I’m glad though.  I really need to make money.  I’m not going to Lake Powell with Laura because I can’t afford to miss a week of work.  I really want to go.  Oh well.  I guess you have to do what you have to do.  I don’t think I’ll have enough money as it is.  I should have close but not quite.  I should have like $700.  I need $825.  I’ll just borrow some from someone and pay them back a few weeks later.

This was the summer between my freshman and sophomore years of college.  I lived with my sister and her best friend in a small apartment that we paid for by working in the yard of the family that owned it.  It was a huge yard and it was a lot of work but like I said it was a great trade off.  It was always hard to week a vegetable garden that you didn’t get to eat the veggies from.

I’m glad I was so excited to make $6.20/hour.  I definitely would not feel the same way now.  I was saving up to pay my rent for the next year of college.  Thanks for lending me the extra money Mom and Dad.  Did I ever pay you back?
