In Honor of My New Internship

That's right! I got the internship at BalletMet. Arts Administration. I'm SO excited.

So to pay a tribute I'm going to post pictures of the work wardrobe that I wish I could get for this fall.

I'm Mobile

Yes Loves, I got wheels.

On Sat I purchased, purchased, a 2003 VW Passat sedan.

It's silver and cute and it smells like grapes.

This is me signing away the most money ever.

Now to find some spare cash to feed the monster cat that is terrorizing my life and house.

(p.s. this is scheduled so right now I'm literally taking my physiology exam... Prayers please and wish me luck!)

Lonely, I'm So Lonely.

Jake is gone for his anual training...

Today is day 6 out of17.

I'm actually doing kinda OK.

I think my finals for the quarter are a good distraction. I have an 8 page paper to write as well as my Physiology final to study for. I dont know what I'm going to do after tomorrow once those are over with... clean I guess.

I'm trying to decide if I want a friend to come and stay with me or not. I am thinking that since I'm doing really Ok I might skip it and just keep on keepin' on. I'm almost starting to like being a loner. I feel like a big girl, able to escape to my own little world when everything else is crazy.

I just hope the contentment carries over into the days when I'm bored out of my mind with no school work do occupy my time... Well, no school work to think about while I do other things. (I'm being realistic here).

How have my Loves been while I was away? Did I miss anything exciting in your lives? (it's exhausting going through the past 2-3 weeks of posts to catch up, but I will eventually)

Thankful Thursdays

Today I'm thankful for:

  • Calculators. Without them I would be unable to do anything above simple addition... And I even struggle there. plus I'd have failed a lot of classes.

  • Makeup... even though it's useless in the repetitive 90* humid mess that Columbus has been this week. I'm still thankful for foundation and mascara... They're lifesavers... lemon flavor.

  • Options. So far finding a car has been a total bust. I'm thinking that for the three weeks that Jake is gone I will be minimally driving his stick shift (once I learn how to drive it) and getting a car afterward.... Scary I know. But things just aren't working out the way we hoped it would... I am starting to think that it's God's way of telling us to slow down and try some new approach. Or to get us to do something before we find the gem of a car we are supposed to get. It's all up to The Big Man upstairs. (but praying that we find me a car before I kill another car wouldn't hurt)

  • Family that tells it as it is. They are just what I need.

  • Hair that can take the humidity!!! That's right. the only issue that I'm having with my hair since I've started the CurlyGurl routine is the gel sweating off the bottom layer of my hair from sitting on my sweaty self. It's amazing and SO EASY in the mornings... and I dont have to worry about things looking crazy mid-day... it's just beach wave-wonderful!

Love you, my Loves

P.s. puppies are due, like, now. So if you could pray that things get figured out soonish... or that there wont be one that I'll want in this litter (the next one is due in 2 weeks) that'd be great... Got that? Prayers for car. Prayers for pup.

Anything you want me to pray about for you?

What's Up With Me? What's Up With You?!

So since I've been a little MIA recently I'm going to give you recent developments and happenings in a very choppy and unorganized manner. You know you love me.

I haven't heard back from the Internship. I'm a little nervous but I have to calm down because the woman who interviewed me went on a 2 week vacation and was cool enough to interview me on her first day off... So I'm trying to be patient. I'm just so excited about just even the opportunity that I could die..... OK I'm being dramatic. But it's flipping awesome. Keep your fingers crossed please.

I've been car shopping enough to drive a person crazy in the past 3 weeks. Last week along I went car shopping almost every day... I was told by one of the salesmen that it's because the school season is coming up and everyone is looking for a car in the $5000 range.

I found a car. Hopefully. It hadn't been through the mechanic and detail department yet but I test drove it anyway, placed a deposit and I'm waiting for them to call me to tell me how much the repairs will be on top of the price. There were issues with the switching of gears (it was just a little slow and resistant to shift when it should have) and with a shaky steering wheel... Dad said it was an engine miss fire... Like I know what that means. He said it could be big or little. So here I am waiting for the call... Earlier today I checked online and it was on their website... I'm beginning to be a little sceptic... But then again the guy who I'm in contact with goes to my church.... So I don't know.... Ugh, I don't know.

Jake is leaving for AT (Army training... or at least that's my acronym for it) on Friday. he'll be allowed to come home every night for the first 4 night's at 7 pm. That's exciting to me. it's better than quitting him cold turkey for 3 weeks.

The breeder that I've been talking to has a litter due this week... I'm nervous because I have to go and meet the puppies by myself (maybe Big Sis will go along to help) because Jake will be at AT.

I also just called my landlady to ask her about our lease. When she calls me back tonight I'm going to tell her that we love the place and the community but that we are contemplating getting puppy from a 15lb breed. From there the worst she can say is 'no,' right? So who knows if she will agree or not.. I might mention that some of the other renters are thinking about getting a petition going for the no dog rule.... But that's only if I'm desperate. I really don't want to go through the trouble of moving... Our casa is in the perfect location and is only maybe a little too small...

I'm entertaining the idea of having someone move in with me if Jake deploys (I say if only because the Army is so dang unorganized at this point... so anything could happen) I might want to go it alone for the first month or so just to make sure that I really needed company. I'm thinking that I'd probably be pretty OK on my own... But who knows.

TOB and Twin lost their baby. Evidently TOB has been spotting heavily and started cramping a few weeks ago. She was rushed in for blood work and found out that the fetus had stopped growing at 5 weeks. Her body was trying to self abort. So she is in the final stages of that and is still in a lot of pain from the pill her doctor gave her to speed along the process. She had an idea of what was happening and was pretty realistic about it the whole time. Twin was/is pretty torn up about it. I am hurting for them, no matter how I felt about the poor timing, I was still excited for a little niece or nephew. Prayers for them would be really great.

I only have 2 weeks of classes left. This week and next week then it's finals. I'm going to be so relieved when these three classes are over.

So that's been me recently. I hope you've all been well.

Lots of papers to write and articles to read.

Bye Loves!

Thankful Thursdays

Well it's been a while. This week has been a hectic one. But I'm pleased to say that after tomorrow I only have 2 weeks left in the quarter. It's an amazing fact... Be fascinated.

Today I'm thankful for

  • Dad's who don't mind going car shopping 1000000 times because I'm too damn picky.
  • Husbands who don't yell when I say no to a almost perfectly fine car in our price range because I don't like that it's so red it looks orange... Yeah... OK so instead of yelling he just didn't talk to me for the rest of the night... It's a good thing I later found out that he wasn't talking to me because he thought I wasn't talking to him when really I was giving him his space to be angry...
  • For camp days that allow me to skip class with and excused absence.
  • 4 freaking 30.
