YIPPEE!!

Just wanted to share the news that I got the AmeriCorps job working for Habitat for Humanity here in Kansas City. YAY! It was the job that I really wanted - it's a great organization, the interview had gone well without out too many "weird alerts" and it's only about a mile from my house which means saving on gas money. I don't start until August, so I get one last summer break and am looking for suggestions on things to do for cheap to fill in my time. Let me know if you have any ideas! :)

That's great.

You could start hanging out at lumber yards, learning the difference between a 2x4 and 2x6, a box head nail and a finish nail. Get you a 2x4 and some nails to practice driving nails. Study up on Jimmy Carter. Get your bike ready so you can ride it to work. You could ride a mile in a few minutes.

Great news! Hipchick told me in class yesterday. Habitat is a great organization. What will you be doing there?

As for the month off...Read something of YOUR choice. Go to the zoo. Clean house (or not - your time is your own). Clean my house - that would be nice. Do something nice for yourself.

Congrats on the new job!
