A Collective Sigh of Relief

Once again, the earth has come to the point in its orbit we humans (in the Northern Hemisphere, at least) like to call "summer." School's ending, vacations are being planned and summer jobs are being sought. This is as good an excuse as any to be cliché, so I will ask the question on everyone's lips: what are your summer plans?

For myself, I'll be interning somewhere, and it looks like there's a good chance it will be in Searcy. There's just the whole thing of the internships being unpaid and needing money so as to have a place to live and such. We'll see what happens with that.

So what's going on with everyone else? Jobs? Vacations? Road trips? Maybe a concert or show planned? I know Memphis in May is coming up. For you adult-types who have a full-time job and get annoyed at us student-folk blathering on about summer vacation, got any good trips planned, even for a weekend? Let us hear from you, even if you think you're not doing anything exciting over the summer.

I'm spending the end of May and all of June on a campaign to France, Switzerland, and Belgium with my French professor, his family, and several other students who have studied French.

After I get back I'll be working full time at the library, where I will try to make up for the money I spent on the campaign.

I shall be staying in Searcy...
1. Taking Spanish
2. Working at the library
3. Maybe Searcy Summer Dinner Theatre? (Auditions are Monday, so this has yet to be determined.)
4. Roadtripping to some place to some concert. Maybe. Depends on who is actually touring this summer.

We all know I'm going to be staying in Searcy. Here's what's going to be happening in Searcy:

1. The Tunguska Event
2. Super Smash Brothers Brawl
2a. Dance Parties
2b. More Dance Parties
3. Attempting to eat at All 62 Eating Locations in Searcy
3a. Writing on this blog about it
4. Getting Heat Stroke.

And that's just the tip of the iceberg. Man. I'd really appreciate a random iceberg this summer.

The Chorus is going to China for three weeks in May. In June, I'm a groomsman in a wedding in Florida, then I'm returning to Arkansas to work at camp for five weeks.

For us adult type *cough cough*

I figure I'll be working at the same pace that I was already but with slightly less traffic because you school children are staying off the roads at rush hour.

I do have two weddings to go to this summer so that should be good fun. But I figure I've already had my decent sized vacation, just under a different name (Honeymoon). We might do something small, but who knows. Honestly if it weren't for you Hardingers I really wouldn't know we were hitting the end of school time again.
