After completing the first week back at university, I don’t feel nearly as busy or stressed as last semester. Those are famous last words, but I have a good feeling.
I decided to drop one of my classes, Morality & Politics, so I am no longer overloading. As a result, I had enough room to sign up for the French Film Festival one-credit workshop. All it entails is watching six French films and writing summaries about them. I couldn’t be happier with my schedule now.
I started my internship at Gossip on Thursday and it went really well, considering I missed the right exit on the main road and showed up a half-hour late. I picked out some clothing and accessories at the store and created an “outfit of the day” picture to post on their Facebook page. Then, I helped Leslie, the manager, refresh some product displays.
Before I left Newport for the weekend, I stopped by Green Envy Eco-Boutique. I had been meaning to send letters, greeting cards, postcards, or something to friends out of town, so I picked up two Fair Trade greeting cards by Sanctuary Spring, made in the Philippines. On the back of the card, it has the signature of the artisan who made it.
