Summer employment

I have been given a job over the summer. I will be a half RA half RD during the summer writing workshop at Simon's Rock. The job will be about three and a half weeks long, and I will be sharing an RD apartment (two or three bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, living room) with another half RA half RD. Room and board is free, and I'll make some money on top of that.

I'm very excited. The summer writing workshop is for kids in grades nine through twelve, and they have a curfew (which is nice) and we'll be doing activities with them when they are not in classes. So basically I will be a camp counsellor.

I think for the month and a half this summer I won't be working at the rock or in Ireland, I will undertake some large project that I can do for a set amount of hours every day. I am thinking a short novel or a collection of short stories (the second is more likely). Or perhaps some huge knitting project, I don't really know.

Anyway, that's my news. I find out tonight about my job for next year.

So it comes full circle.

The first time I ever heard of Simon's Rock was in a book of programs for the gifted, telling about the summer writing program -- hoped James might go to it while in high school, so it must have been when you were a baby!

Sounds like fine summer plans, though I think photography should be part of your agenda as well!
