Firsts

I had my first day with AmeriCorps/Red Cross today. It was pretty boring. I spent, with my co-worker, about 1.5 hours doing paperwork. Then we spent another 2 hours watching informational videos about the Red Cross. After that, we were sent home early. The rest of this week is spent in Grand Rapids, training some more.

Today was also my parent’s 30th wedding anniversary. That is certainly not a first. Well, it is, in a sense. It’s not their first wedding anniversary, but it’s their first 30th anniversary. Moving on from that bout of existentialism…

We went to a “fancy” restaurant. As fancy as you can get in Muskegon. It was a very nice place, with excellent food and was generally pretty classy. It was even overlooking the lake. However, the waitresses wore t-shirts. Classy/fancy rating nosedive. The food was good, though. Complete with items that can’t be found at Applebees’s, which makes it unique in Muskegon.

In the end, we’ll wait and see about my job. I did find a plus in Muskegon by dining at The Lake House. On the down side, the average price of dinner is $20. Currently, my salary is a “living stipend” and not enough money to eat out with every week.
