Only Three More Days

My last week of co-op is here. Only three more days (I guess I should say nights) left until I am finally done. Why I am so anxious, you may ask. Well, I am ready to start classes and live a normally scheduled life. But there is also another reason: am I really not too fond of the work environment. I don't know if I can say that the people I work with are a bad influence, because I don't think that they really influence me all that much. However, sometimes I just get really uncomfortable working around them. Many of them always try to get me to go to bars with them to get drunk and get laid. Others tell me to watch out for the Jesus lovers. It's rough to work there, not only because I am a Christian, but because construction is a prime example of a "dog eat dog" business. I feel kinda bad too because I wish there was something I could do to change the mindset of these people, but I don't think there is any way (at least a way in which I am capable) to do that. I think the best I can do in this situation is try to set a good example. Many are surprised and probably think I'm weird that I don't go out to get drunk and get laid, and that I go to church. Oh well. I'll get through this. I've come this far. Only three more days....only three more days.

Hey buddy, hang in there. You're right; the best thing you can do is set a good example. The worst thing you can do in this situation is shove it down their throats. I guess you don't have to worry anymore though since you're FINISHED with coop FOREVER!!

But, don't lose this life lesson. It can always be useful knowledge for the future. Does that sound like a teacher, or what???
