I didn't do too much yesterday except finish the book I was reading - Ethan Frome - and drive/walk around with Zak. I've been spending a lot of my summer days in this lazy way, and I know it's okay to relax, but I'm still on the hunt for a summer internship or job. My "big decision" last week was to quit the internship I was at. I loved the work I was doing, but there were late night events and errands that had me running around Manhattan, and the commuting would have been both expensive and impossible. It was a really tough move, because I couldn't convince myself that I wasn't failing or quitting or giving up on my first real job opportunity. Now, even though I haven't been able to find anything else yet, I'm hoping it was the right move. It's a lot easier in retrospect to say, "Well, maybe I could have just done the late night commuting. Maybe I shouldn't have given up." But when I put myself back to the place I was last week, getting sick over my inability to do what they wanted of me, it's easier to see that I probably wasn't the best fit for them. Oh, boy. I certainly didn't mean for this to evolve into a job woe post, and that's not what I want anyone to take from this. It's more about me, as a person, trying to find what makes me happy - a journey I'm sure everyone can relate to. I'm trying to start living by "if it doesn't make you happy, why do it?" or "if it's not what you want, why settle?," both versions of a bumper sticker on a car I saw walking to school everyday.
Anyway, like I said, a lazy summer day calls for a fairly lazy outfit. I like these shorts because they're high waisted, but since they're stretchy, they had stretched out a lot by the end of the day. Oh well. I can't complain to much because 1. they're still cute and 2. I got them for $10 on sale from Urban Outfitters. I chose my most favorite tee to wear with it, and kept things simple.
