Summertime

(Lionell) Permanent link   All Posts
The long awaited summertime has finally arrived and it is so long overdue. I flew back to the “Big Easy” (New Orleans), the place I call home for the summer. Looking for a summer job in the beginning was relatively hard. I could have continued working at the corporate law firm that employed me for the last two summers, but I wanted a change of environment. It took about a month of applying and interviewing to find a good part time job, but now I am employed as a sales associate at Johnston & Murphy. I have worked there for about three weeks and I think it was right choice for me. Offering my style expertise to those who need it is a wonderful use of one of my many talents.

As I calculate it out we are about halfway through the summer, and I am missing not only my friends but the city of San Francisco. I will always have love for my hometown of New Orleans but this humid summer heat sometimes makes me question why I left San Francisco in the first place. You know Mark Twain said “The coldest winter I ever saw was the summer I spent in San Francisco.” I am thinking next summer will probably be the first that I may stay in San Francisco once the school year ends. I am mentally preparing for how different this school year and school in general will be next year. Many of my really good friends are planning on studying abroad and I will for sure miss their company. I am planning on going to London this spring semester which I will update you on later. I also can not wait to see the renovations that are happening basically in the center of campus. If construction plans are kept as planned I should be able to see the new University of San Francisco campus before I graduate. I am awaiting this upcoming school year with anticipation and excitement for what next year holds.
