Today was my last day of work at Americans For Prosperity. After several months of agonizing, I have finally decided to start a new adventure. I’ll be headed to Idaho for the summer to be a camp counselor and hopefully will follow that with law school in the fall. The past few months have been full of ups and downs as I’ve applied and waited…and waited…and waited…
Still waiting on those law schools, actually. However, I decided to take the leap and here I am! I leave for camp this coming Wednesday.
This has been a pretty emotional week for me. I am incredibly grateful for the last three years with AFP. I have gotten a chance to do what I love, work with amazing people, and truly make a difference here in Wisconsin. AFP has given me many, incredible opportunities, but the best one has always been the chance to wake up in the morning and say, “I can’t believe I’m getting PAID to do this!”
This is farewell to an amazing organization, but not goodbye. Though I am leaving, AFP will always be a part of who I am and what I do in the future. I’m confident in my decision yet this parting is incredibly bittersweet.
My bosses gave me some lovely flowers!
Since January 1st, I have been to the movies 9 times (a high number for me!) but have only seen 5 movies. I end up watching them twice! I saw Sing, Moana, Beauty and the Beast, and now Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 twice in theaters. The one exception is the Lego Batman Movie, which surprises me because I was most looking forward to that one. (I just Googled it and there is a showing of Lego Batman at a theater in Oak Creek…if I hustle, I could make it…just kidding, not that committed.)
Prior to this year, I don’t think I have ever seen a movie twice in theaters. It just doesn’t logically make sense to pay that much to see the same movie. Yet I have done it 4 times this year! Why?! Have the movies been that much better? I don’t think so. It is more that I have a lot of friends I like seeing movies with…so I go, again and again.
Though I know it doesn’t make sense financially, I like seeing movies in theaters more than once. The second time around I get to remember my previous thoughts and emotions as well as experience new ones as I pay attention to other details. Perhaps what I am really enjoying is just seeing the movie twice in a short span of time. I wonder if I would enjoy the experience as much with a regular DVD?
I conclude from this: a movie worth seeing once is worth seeing twice!
Look what my volunteers gave me! It is homemade, too!
And they’re married!!
Many years ago I drove out to Virginia with Danielle to attend a camp. While there, she met a fellow by the name of Nick…
8 years later and I got to read Scripture at their wedding. ❤ What a special, precious day!
My sister just finished her exams and we decided to celebrate by watching a Korean Drama. We chose Let’s Eat (2013) It is a drama all about foodies and it is making my mouth water! I haven’t had anything solid since my surgery and I’ve been craving meat all day…but this is another level of torture altogether! I love Korean food and this is a show entirely about it! Ahhhhh! I know I should have convinced her to pick Secret Garden (2010)!
What is the best way to get out the vote? By unicycle, of course!
Check out the AFP-Wisconsin page on Facebook for the video of Kenneth riding his unicycle while canvassing!
Only 3 more days till we vote! So close!
