Summer is wrapping up.
At the beginning of this Summer I was resentful.
I did NOT want to come back to Salt Lake.
I hated the thought of it.
When I did get home, I hid. I didn't feel like seeing my friends.
I avoided my old life so well in fact, I didn't see one of my best friends until July.
The one thing that saved me?
The Hogle Zoo.
I know, a zoo saving me? How does that happen. But it totally saved my summer.
I got the job at Hogle Zoo the first week of June and have loved it ever since.
(ps. I got the idea of applying after watching "We bought a Zoo" go figure)
Working full-time all summer with awesome people:
A) has helped with my Missoula withdrawals
B) has also helped with the $$ aspect of my life.
Working has made me happy. I feel like I'm actually doing something productive with my life which is a plus. It also gave me a lot of time to think about what is best for me in the long run.
Who knew a summer job could do so much?
My last day is this Friday, and I'm so sad.
I will miss everyone so much.
