Katy will be gone for a little bit, so I hope to keep you entertained with a little update about my summer…
I’ve been working quite a lot at the Grand Kosher Bakery on Grand Avenue in Oakland (about a block down from the theatre). It’s really fun but constant moving around so my feet start to get really sore. But I do get to eat delicious food all day and meet interesting people. Plus, having regular paychecks is just great.
As for schoolwork, my summer is not lacking in the slightest. I have been working on summer assignments for both my AP French Language class as well as my AP English Literature class which I will be starting in the fall. And to top it all off I am taking a physics class at Laney Community College Monday through Thursday at, get this, 8 a.m.
So far, summer is not as relaxing as it should be. What do you think? Does having a job, taking classes, and keeping busy help students? Or does it wear them out when they should be saving their energy for going back to school?
