Erin is now juggling work and school. Who'd have thought, a year ago? She's training at work this week. She'll be working four short shifts a week at this café, clothing boutique and ice cream shop. Great place to work. Nice boss, nice clientèle.
The café is half a block from the main intersection in town and the same distance from the school. Today she finished her shift at 2 pm and was in English class by 2:05. Zinged on caffeine and chatty as heck.
She only has a few hours of school left. A couple of exams to write, a few English classes to attend. Then she'll be in beach / violin / work mode. She's packed a lot into the year and I think she's going to be very relieved to close the books on her last three courses.
What next year will bring is still an open question. At this point she intends to continue attending school, though on a more limited basis.
