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?
