Kids, don't try this at home...

So after being home for almost a month and putting in lots of applications we still don't have jobs. Kind of discouraging, really. I'm going to go to the college tomorrow to see if they can help me find temporary work for the summer, so wish me luck!

In the meantime, my little sister who is also job hunting decided
to do the American thing and is starting her own business. She printed up fliers for dog walking/dog sitting and last night she, Adam and I went out and left them around the neighborhood. Holly even offered to hire me if she gets clients who need daytime care for their pets while she is in school.

She's a doll.

On another note, don't try this at home...riding double on a bike with no helmets. I'm pretty sure it's not smiled upon. But it made them smile. It reminds me of being in Jingdezhen and riding a bike for the first time in years and for the first time in a town. And we didn't have helmets there either so it was kinda wild. Jingdezhen's traffic rule is simple: every man for himself. I remember riding my bike there and thinking the whole time, "what would my father think if he could see me now?!"

I'm really liking the sunsets we've been getting lately. Holly and
I went for a walk 2 nights ago and saw a gorgeous sunset but didn't have a camera. So last night when we went out to hand out fliers I brought my camera in the hopes of catching another sunset. This sunset wasn't as pretty as the other one, but it was still nice.
It's like past 1 pm and I'm still in my PJs. Disgraceful. Plus I got sunburned yesterday when I vowed I wouldn't do that. I hate it when I lie to myself like that. I did that before when I promised myself I wouldn't wear braces and glasses together. Well guess what?
That photo is about 3 or 4 years old. Now I just wear glasses and a retainer. And sometimes I don't even wear my glasses. And actually I shrunk my upper retainer so I only have the permanent lower one now. My orthodontist is going to hate me.

That photo was taken in Shepherdstown, WV at Shaharazades Tea House. It's one of the coolest little restaurants ever and their iced tea (shown above) is really good. Actually, pretty much everything there is good.

I'm going to go put on something besides pajamas now. Happy Saturday.
