If I was to describe my summer break in one word, it would be: cool. It means comfortably or moderately cold in one definition, and unexciting in another. My summer so far has revolved around these two meanings.
About four-fifths of my time is spent in some air conditioned area, away from that heat. That is when I’m on the train, at work, and at home. Thank goodness for technology.
And like the second definition, my summer hasn’t been exciting which isn’t bad; it has moments. I’m at fault for making it unexciting anyways. It consists of an almost repetitive day to day basis. I commit about 25 hours to work (Starbucks). The rest of my time is given to sleep, spending time with my buddies, video games and reading. I never been a reader, but I had started reading How to Read a Book by Mortimer J. Adler and Charles Van Doren and The Origin of Species by Charles Darwin. I’m reading the first book to learn some techniques and ways to digest a book while the second text because I want to see how it relates to humanity.
I haven’t done anything related to Public Relations, but that time will come soon. I had switched my major last semester from English to Public Relations, so I’m new to the field. My name is Stephen Nguyen and this is my summer break so far.
