Adventures Begin! (Recap)
Greetings, fellow adventurers! As I have been negligent in posting my adventures thus far, I thought I would start with a quick roundup of what my first few adventures have been. (Don’t worry, in future posts the storyteller in me will really come out as I share my experiences in exquisite detail.)
Adventure 1: Worked for a week at the elementary school where my mother teaches art. Keeping track of six classrooms each of Kindergartners and third graders is a crazy fun time, but it reminded my why I decided not to be a teacher.
Adventure 2: Had my very first phone interview–with a woman in Austria! It’s now official and I’ll be starting my three month internship at the library of the Salzburg Global Seminar in September.
Adventure 3: I had the unintended adventure of finding a local doctor who would believe me that I do indeed know when I have a sinus infection and would give me a prescription. That part was a success, unfortunately, I did not recover fast enough for my scheduled oral surgery and had to put that off for a few weeks.
Adventure 4: Getting back into swimming. Awkward hours at the campus gym is a terrible excuse, so this week I set a schedule and stuck to it. Few things are as energizing as being in the water, although it would be nice if it were the Caribbean instead of a pool in Boston in the winter…
Adventure 5: Last week’s adventure was a visit to the MFA to see the famous mummy head. It was fascinatingly disturbing.
This week’s adventure will probably be to think of something that actually sounds adventurous when I write it down. Wish me luck!
