1. I think I've decided for sure to take the six credits this summer rather than have a summer job. That means I'll be in class every day from 9-12 once the summer starts and from 4:30-7 starting this week until July 19. After this summer, I'll have 18 credits out of 33 completed in my Master's Program. I'm scheduled to take six more in the fall (Monday nights from 5-9, Saturdays from 9-2), meaning I'll probably be able to have it finished by the end of next summer. This albatross of being the only person in my department except one without a Master's will be eliminated, and I'll look to greater sights - like National Board certification.
2. Tomorrow, I plan on buying a bicycle. I want to use it to get around a lot more than I do now, particularly on the Towson campus this summer where parking is limited. The schedule in my mind for the summer is to drive out to Towson Commons at around 6:30, get my workout on until about 8:30, then bike on over to the Towson campus for my class, leaving my car there parked at Trader Joe's for those three hours. Then, I head back, grab my lunch, putter around Barnes and Noble, and maybe finish off at Bally's whatever sets didn't go as well as I wanted them to go in the morning. I don't know much about buying a bike but will do a little research tonight. Right now I'm planning on getting a cheap one at Target; they have them on sale for $79 or something like that and I don't want to spend a lot of money on something I'm not sure if I'm going to use a whole lot. With a bike, a helmet, and a lock, I hope to get out of there without spending more than I made in tips this weekend.
3. The shift was long and hard today, and I'm definitely sore now. I made $80 working from 9-5, which is pretty low for a full Sunday brunch shift. I still felt busy, but not as much as usual, and those people who came in weren't drinkers. I sold only a handful of bloody marys and mimosas.
4. After the shift, I headed with a co-worker (Polish Girl #2) to The Waterfront Hotel for a drink. I totally could have spent the night drinking with her, but she had to go, so we bid adieu. Calls around to friend found no takers, so, absent a partner in crime, I went home for the evening, caught a nap, and now am about to sit down and watch Coach Carter from Netflix.
