Last summer, I was 100% unemployed and having anxiety attacks because I couldn't find a teaching position. This summer will be about the same thing, but I feel like I understand the application process better and I have a night job. Summer is also the time that I consistently convince myself that I am skinny. It might no be an illusion this year, because I've been working so much that only have time for tiny meals. All I really want right now is to be able to walk out of my house in the morning without feeling cold. Summer, for me, is all about sitting out in the sun and reading books. I check out the book sale at every church picnic and black party until I have a stack of books as tall as me, then I read them all before August. Last year, I think I read about 42 books in the three months between the end of one school year and the start of the next. I want to try and break that this year.
