This summer started out uneventful enough. For most of June I didn’t do very much. Sure, I did tidy up the yard a bit, but not a whole lot besides that.
However, toward the end of June I started volunteering at the Hope Center of Edmond, specifically in their food pantry. The folks over at the HOPE Center are a pleasure to work with, and I feel like I am making a positive contribution to our community. Overall I am very grateful for the experience that the HOPE Center has provided me with.
I have also been working as a waiter at Al’s Cafe and Grill for the past two and a half weeks. It’s a small, old-fashioned onion burger joint that also has some delicious daily specials. The work is hard (and at times, messy too) but I love to work there. Everyday I learn something new and interesting about the restaurant business.
And if all of that wasn’t enough, I’m also doing contractual work for Stamm Web Creations. I’m mostly building and managing WordPress-based websites, but I do other tech-related jobs for them as well.
So, that’s what I’ve been up to so far this summer. When school is close to starting I’ll post a summer-in-review post too.
