BLOG POST FOR APRIL WEEK 1
It seems like the easiest posts to write are the ones that include small updates on my life, so that’s what I’ll do for this week as well. Today I had my interview for a position as a student naturalist at Shady Creek Outdoor School for next year, and not only was it a great interview but it was a great hour long conversation with two of the most amazing people I know. I’ve been lucky enough to get to know Yeti and Quail through working at Shady Creek as a cabin leader and through the Leadership Team and this application process and they are simply amazing, positive, wonderful and uplifting people. Despite the fact that it was an interview setting they made me feel completely comfortable and at ease and I really enjoyed the entire process.
I was really happy to have my interview up at Shady Creek because that place has something magical about it and I feel so happy as soon as I arrive each time. I am thrilled about the opportunity to work their next year and I really, really hope that I’ll be given the chance to do so. Their decision will be difficult this year but if I am given the position I know that it will be an incredibly life changing and rewarding year and an awesome way to spend my time and energy. I have a lot of passion for what Shady Creek does and I just really want to be a part of it. So… fingers crossed! I find out April 20th!
In other events, I had an amazing (and crazy) Easter this year! Our friends from LA came up to spend the holiday with us so we had a total of 16 people staying at our house (which isn’t particularly large.) It made for a super fun, super rambunctious few days and the house feels extremely empty and quiet without them now. It’s really fun having such great family friends and every weekend they visit us or we visit them is memorable.
Between the many visitors, prospect of the end of the school year, and great opportunities for next year life is looking good! Now I just need to get through the next weeks of school.
