One of my favorite parts of summer is the amount of time I have. This means that I have more time to not only watch Netflix, and knit baby hats or blankets, or whatever I may think of at that particular moment, but I have more time to work. Now, work for me looks different than most student’s summer work schedule. I’m not working weird hours, or late into the night, or full eight hour shifts, but I do have more time to do what I love. Yes, you read me right. Love. I really enjoy what I do. Being a youth director means that I have more time to spend with my kiddos and even more time to make their programming the best it can possibly be. I also have more time to work at the school. Because I’m not restricted now by class times and can work as much as they need me to. So, this last week I got to help with the TUG cover photo shoot. Every few years this photo shoot happens to make sure that the University is using new photos on each of the covers of the TUG guides. You’ve probably received one or three in the mail by now if you’re a prospective student, or if you are a current student. I got to help carry stuff around, make sure everyone had signed the right waivers, and the best part is I got to share some of my cow jokes with the students who were modeling for the shots. They even allowed me to be in some of the shots, so if they end up on the website or in a brochure or guide, I will be sure to show you or direct you to them! Anyways, that’s all for now, I’ll let you know more about my summer next week!
