Dear Diary,

Today is my second day in this town and I went looking for a job. Eh. But the great thing is that my best friend is going to get a job too! Hopefully, we will find an employer who needs more than one worker. We were walking around the town: restaurants, cafes, asking if they are hiring. We even went to that amusement park my mom suggested: I don’t want to work there, not even a little bit. I may have to though… The thing is: I came here too late, most of the hotels and restaurants are all set, and all the positions are filled: waitresses, hostesses, receptionists. No one is needed.

But today wasn’t all bad: I had a great time catching up with my best friend, I met her boyfriend, he seems nice, I am really happy for them.

We also went to the beach; the wind from Atlantic was freezing, but we did bathe in the sun a little. I even got sunburn. No fair – how come the weather is so terrible but I still can get sun burn? But I’ve got to admit that there is nothing like the sight of the ocean, it’s beautiful. It changes its color like ten times a day, and every single time it’s different: grey, blue, grey-blue, light-blue, dark-blue, turquoise, or even white! And here is what I really enjoyed on the beach today: I closed my eyes, listened to the sound of the ocean waves and touched the warm sand, it was an amazing feeling. I can’t recall anything that even remotely reminds it, the time literally stops when you do it. Especially when there are not so many tourists on the beach.
