More pictures of Bowie because he's darn cute and thoughts on summer.

Monday all the staff return to Lionsgate Academy to start a new school year. This was my first summer in a very long time WORKING and man was that a bummer. Actually it was and it wasn't. I enjoyed the work at LGA. Working summer school was a great experience and it was my pleasure to step in as a service provider and actually meet with students again. It was also an honor to be part of opening a brand new building and have ownership in the process of organizing and setting everything up. I was glad for the physical labor as it was a nice change from desk work. That being said it was a weird summer for me personally. I can't put my finger on it but it just seemed hard. I came to realize that I rely on my summers for my self care. I tried very hard to focus on my personal health this summer. I started seeing an acupuncturist for the first time and had cupping done. I established care with a new/rock star chiropractor. I became a regular twice a week at my local yoga studio. Josh and I tried and failed and tried to re-do our kitchen (success at last). I guess it was a very real and very introverted summer. In a way that feels boring or like I failed at maintaining my usual adventure life. In a way it was very much what it needed to be. I can say that I regained clarity of my mind and my goals this summer. I feel healthier than ever and I feel motivated to get some new things going in this upcoming school year. I feel confident about my job for the first time since I began and I feel excitement for my team and future in our school's new location. In a funny way it feels like now that summer is done I can finally begin to relax and enjoy some of the fun and adventures that are in store.
