Quick Update

Not too much has occured since my last post, aside from the fact that my outlook on life and general attitude has improved somewhat. :) I spent the weekend with some of my most favorite people. As soon as I discontinue my lazy streak, I will post pictures of this weekend with my best friend, Female Version 2.0 and her delightful family. We spent it shopping, eating, and laughing. What better way to get your mind off feeling sorry for yourself? Am I right?

I know that things will be okay. It just takes one day at a time to convince myself of that. Repetition, repetition, repetition...

Well, today has turned out to be crappy with a capital CRAP!

It started out well. I got ready and was out the door on time for work. The drive there was a beautiful one as it was approximate 20 degrees cooler than it had been all week and some immensely amazing storm clouds were due north. The sky had this ominous dark tone that is so unexpected that early in the morning. I loved it. The field directly east of my apartment was thick with a layer of bright white fog that was in stark contrast of the sky. An amazing morning.

Work was fine until I questioned the ethical standards of others. It's hard for me to talk to people on the phone who ask me, "How inhumane do you think it would be if I left my cat with a broken leg?" Not kidding. I was asked that today. A woman watched her cat get hit by a car on Saturday, HEARD his lungs filling with fluid, and then was like, "Oh, he'll be dead by morning."'t.die. He suffered. He lived until morning when the woman finally took him to a vet clinic. There, she was told the animal would require surgery due to the location and extensive nature of his injuries. She didn't want to pay for it, so she called me. She wasn't asking for financial assistance. She wasn't asking for advice. No. She was asking me to set her free from the burden of guilt she felt for wanting to take her cat to a barn and let it die from its injuries. I couldn't tell her that was okay. I just couldn't. So, I told her that before we could give her any medical advice, it was in the pets best interest to be seen by a veterinarian. Now, I fear she will never bring the cat in, and he will sit and suffer until he dies. I will never understand people.

I began to feel sick and couldn't wait to go home. The time came for my shift to end and I was making the drive back home when an idiot pulled out across traffic almost hitting me. I think I almost vomited. I immediately called Katie at work and asked her if she had seen it from the office window. She hadn't, but I was freaking out. I got home and ate some lunch. I couldn't shake the queasy feeling so I decided to lay down for a bit. The phone rang and it was my mom. I have been having some issues with student loans and getting them defered until I can actually get a real job, post college, and pay for them. I had them originally set up so that I could pay on them monthly as I have zero outside financial help and knew the mass amounts of loans would drown me upon graduation. I thought paying monthly would atleast help with the interest some. Well, moving has proved to be quite a burdening expense and in order to continue attending school, I have to drop hours at work. Financial crisis continues. So, Mom was calling to find out if I could defer my payments until after graduation, but for some reason unbeknownst to me, all of my loans are now in my moms name. All the money comes to me, the bills come to me. But they're in her name. So, I can't defer anything, I can't get a forbearance, I can't consolodate...nothing. I'm SOL. I pay more a month on student loan payments than I do on my car payment. UGH! I have also recently switched Health Insurance carriers due to cost. I was paying more in health insurance than I really think my life is worth. Let me get'll be cheaper than paying for coverage! I know I am wallowing. I need to wallow. I have no idea what in the world I am going to do. I know things will work out, but why in the WORLD does it have to be so dadgum hard to just stay afloat. I am doing my absolute best to be solely independent but I find it harder and harder to do so, and easier and easier to be bitter.

I think I need a vacation. Not from Stillwater, from Life. You know, I completely bypassed the go out, have fun, be a kid phase and went straight from grade school to adulthood. I rarely got in trouble. I didn't smoke, I didn't drink, I didn't sneak out. I had a job by the time I was 15 and have worked ever since. I busted my ass studying in high school so that I could get into college and now, I just want out. I want to go back!! I want the chance to be irresponsible and selfish. I want the chance to milk my parents for money and not have a job. I want the chance to be young and carefree and not have the burdens of my life anymore. I am so tired of always worrying. I can't remember the last time I was just able to relax and have NOTHING in my future that caused me worry or grief. Every step I take that feels like a move forward ends up feeling like I've made a monumental mistake. YAY! I'm in school. Now how to do I pay for this? YAY! I have have a job. Now how do I work around school? YAY! I have my own apartment. Now how do I make ends meet?

I'm just tired. Bear with me...tomorrow will be a new day.
Now, I'm off to babysit for.three.children. *sigh*

Welcome Home

Today, the dear, dear Cox Cable man came over to make my dreams come true. He set me up with some digital goodness and I am once again on the information superhighway. The digital world is once again at my fingertips. I can once again…breathe. Its sad how addicted to the internet I have become. One week without it caused me to nearly succumb to seizures. I had to drive to my mom’s house, people! Drive! For the internet! For sweet, sweet email. I am now sitting in the comfort of my own home writing my very first blog post as a completely independent individual. I am completely thrilled with how things have turned out here. I love that everything has its place and I have even been compulsively cleaning. I am a single gal, who has run the dishwasher three times since being here for one week. Haha! I think my incessant vacuuming has driven away the neighbors. Two have moved out since I got here. Heehee! I think I finally have most things where they will permanently go. Only a few minor details are left undone and those are gradually finding their way into storage.

As I stated in an earlier post, I received my letter from the SPD this week and I am ranked number 5 out of 20 applicants. I am okay with that, honest. Given, there is still a slim, slim chance I will get it, I am banking on the fact that I will not. Therefore, I am applying for student loans as originally planned and I informed my boss this afternoon of my plans to stick around for awhile longer. The look of relief on her face was evident. Mostly in an “I told you so” sort of way. She wanted so badly to say it you could see it in her eyes. The words were hot in her mouth, yearning to break free. I think she may have tasted the tinge of iron as she bit her tongue. () In all honesty, I know she felt bad that I didn’t get it, and she told me she was proud of me for trying. She was even pretty impressed with how highly I ranked, but I think she wanted me to know her exact position on continuing my education. She never thought I’d be able to go to school and work the hours they were wanting. Funny. It seems she hasn’t seen me laugh in the faces of everyone else who told me I’d never do it. Where has she been?

There is not much else to write about at the moment. Atleast nothing that my brain will let me form into a coherent idea. I have spent the last 4 hours or so reading The DaVinci Code. Oh my I ever recommend this? YES! It has captivated my entire attention span (which is saying quite a lot) and I am already over 1/3 of the way into it. I know it is a fiction story and that it has raised many questions among people since its conception, but man is it good and does it ever make you think? I bought it at Wal-Mart yesterday for $4. Do yourself a favor and read it. I think I may have finally found a reason to branch away from Harry Potter. haha!

Much love all...

Randomness, Gotta Luv It

So, Best Friend wasn't able to come to do a killer sinus infection. :(

To pass the time without her, I ran some errands with my mom in the morning and we had breakfast and watched a movie. I really don't recommend Dick & Jane with Jim Carey & Tea Leoni...not really a winner. Kinda bland. I then went home and took the most amazing nap ever. *sigh* I never take naps so this one was truly refreshing. I spent the rest of my day cleaning and attempting to organize what was left of my moving boxes. Edwin & Caitlin came over for a visit and to see the new place. It was really good to see them again. I know it has only been a week, but man, it seems like forever! I have resorted to talking to myself and the cats. And people, that's scary. After they left, they called to let me know I got a letter from the Police Department regarding the job. I drove straight over. I prayed the whole way to their house that God would let me be content with whatever the letter said. I wanted to open it and be completely satisfied with the outcome. It worked. :) I opened the letter to reveal the words of, "You passed the interview process and are ranked number five out of twenty." I am okay with it. A little saddened, sure. But all in all, I'm okay. There is still a VERY slim chance I will get the position, but slim, very slim. I am going to continue with the original plan of working part time now and going to school full time while relying on student loans. Things will work out just as they are meant to. Thank you deeply to all of you who offered your name as a reference as well as your prayers and well wishes. They made a world of difference.

Caitlin met me at the apartment this morning and we went to church together. As always it was a really good sermon. We had to sit in the second row however and I think I may have strained my neck trying to look up and sing the words to the songs. haha! There was a dad there with his little girl and it was the cutest thing EVER. She was dressed up in this frilly little dress with flowers on it. When the song said something about 'children dancing' he would spin her and she would giggle...SO.DADGUM.CUTE.

After church we went and got lunch and then went back to the Ramsey house. It was beyond weird to sit in that house. Everything was different. It felt spacious. ha! Something we definately didn't have with 5 of us living there. THEN, people, I worked out. Yes, I know...surprising. haha! While eating lunch, Cait and I watched E! Entertainment Television and saw all the extreme diets that celebs go on. Rediculous stuff I tell you. I however, just don't want to be a cow. Therefore, Tae-Bo, here I come. I worked out, showered and then decided to clean the bathroom. I know, I am so full of randomness today it's insane.

While cleaning I had my laptop playing some tunes. The shuffle started to play a song my friend Travis had written me when I moved from Illinois to Oklahoma. "I'm not great at goodbye's, so I'll just say so long..." It almost made me cry! While unpacking last night, I came across letters that Clint and Sherene had written me and a sweatshirt Bear let me have. In everything that life has thrown my way, I have never had to wonder one day if I was loved. I have the best friends in the whole world. It made me so homesick to think about it, which is strange because I now call Stillwater home. This is home to me. This is where I have worked so hard to create a life for myself. A job, a home... But to those of you who read this, and even to those of you who may not, please know how much your friendship has meant to me all these years. I moved away in 2001 and I can swear to you a day hasn't gone by that I haven't thought about you. Missed you. To Travis, Nathan, Clint, Brad, Suzanne, Sherene, Drew, Kory and so many more...I love you now, I loved you then, and I will love you always.

After making sure the bathroom was Spic n' Span, I loaded up my laundry and headed to mom's house. I am using her internet because I STILL DON'T HAVE IT AT MY PLACE. For those of you who know me at know this is almost as bad as telling me there will be no more chocolate. No more oxygen. No...more...INTERNET. OMG!! The horror!! Thank God my Mom is still connected to the digital world.

I am going to bring this long winded note to a close and go finish up my laundry.

Have a great week all!!
Love, Liz

Hello Blog People!

Hello Blogosphere...Well, things they are a changin’...

I haven’t written in quite some time and a lot has gone on. That would be WHY I haven’t blogged in a while. Sitting down to type anything has felt more like a chore than a release as I have been thoroughly exhausted. I moved all last weekend and this week I’ve been working my regular shift and then unpacking every evening. Did I mention that I babysit three kids every Friday night too? Yup, sure do. Great kids though; they’re a breeze.

I am officially moved in and settled into my new place. I LOVE IT! I honestly couldn’t be happier with the way everything turned out. I’m positive I spent way too much money getting it the way I wanted it, but you know what, who cares? I am happy with it and the bills are mine to manage so I don’t care. Everyone needs to splurge on their first place, right? Oh who am I kidding? I’m gonna be in debt forever with this one. Haha! I miss having roommates to some degree, but I am really quite pleased with living alone. I miss Matt who has moved back to Tulsa too. At least Edwin and Caitlin are across town when I miss them. Stinky Matt! Come back. It gets rather quiet at my place, but it is definitely not dull. My cats LOVE the new place and run with more energy than I’ve ever seen. They’re definitely a blessing to have around. My neighbors are all really nice so far. One in particular happens to be mighty good looking and very pleasant...but he’s Damn. (He also has a child and he was never really in the running.)

The interview for the police department is done and I should know by next week sometime how I ranked among my fellow applicants. I think the interview went well, but honestly, there is no way to know how I did. I got ZERO feedback from the panel. That’s okay though. Whatever happens, happens and I’m content in knowing that it will be for the best. One way, I get a kick ass job that pays well and includes benefits. The other way, I continue working with my friends part time, live off student loans and continue my path towards a Bachelors of Science Degree in Broadcast Journalism/Public Relations. Either way...things will be okay.

I probably mentioned in a previous post that I have joined a church. I am thoroughly happy with that decision. I have started volunteering every other Sunday as part of the Host Team and work as a greeter. I also help to set up for the following service. I will soon be joining a LifeGroup which is sort of like a mini-bible study/fellowship group. It should be fun. Also, I now have a mild crush on a boy who goes to church with me. Mild, very mild. Don’t even know if I really like him yet. Haha! Actually, he works at the church. Good, eh?

Since I was a little girl, I have always been one who wishes on stars. Silly, I know. But old habits die hard. My first real boyfriend used to sit outside with me and teach me the constellations. That boyfriend has since come and gone...many times. Those memories from my past are being resurrected and a part of me wishes they weren’t. They’re coming in the form of contact from the ex-boyfriend. But you know, I have decided that it’s okay to talk to him. It has been almost 6 years since we’ve dated and I have grown up SO much. We are completely different people now and in no way compatible in a relationship sense. Friends, cool. Email buddies, splendid. Boyfriend/Girlfriend, no chance in H**L.

My dear friend Katie woke up this morning with severe abdominal pains and has been diagnosed with kidney stones. Poor baby! I went to the store at the instruction of our boss and bought her every liquid delight I could fine. I got her 3 different kinds of juice, bottled water, Sprite, V8 smoothie, 2 kinds of tea and lemonade. Oh yeah, and some Chocolate covered mint oreos and jell-o. Gotta have the necessities. :) She is feeling a little better thanks to tons of fluids and of course...drugs! I am now sitting at her house keeping her company before a staff meeting. We're watching The Princess Bride. (also reminds me of "the ex", DANGIT!)

I guess that is all for now. Nothing too deep or philosophical today. I'm just glad to be finished moving! :)

Love, Liz

Is it sad that I totally want to marry this guy?

Simply Overwhelmed: OxyMORON of the Year

I know that I truly have very little to complain about. I have been blessed beyond words with so many things and I am definately one who recognizes it. I am, however, completely overwhelmed with the unknown. I am one of those people who doesn't necessarily worry about today, but I will freak the hell out about something a week from now. Lying? YES! I am always worried about something or stressed about something. It is my nature. Without worry, Liz would cease to exist. Here's where the weirdness ensues...I am worried and excited all at the same time, about the same things.

1) I have applied for a new job. I truly love my current one, there are just some things I would LOVE to see change. job being one of them. :) This amazing opportunity has stumbled into my lap. And people, I think I might just have a chance at getting it. I am trying SO hard to not get my hopes up, but I still pray about it daily. I want this. I can't help it, I do.

2) I am moving this week. TO.MY.VERY.OWN.PLACE. This is fan-freakin'-tastic, ya'll. I have never lived on my own and I am SO EXCITED! I loved having roommates, but it is time to make changes. Time to move on. Time to be the independent being I have strived to be since birth. Seriously, I refused to even come out of the womb the easy way. I had to do it myself, backwards. I had to make my own mistakes then and nothing has changed there. Maybe that's what this is all about. Finding myself while trying to 'make myself'. Whow knows? It's late...and I'm pooped.

There's of course, more. However, now isn't the time to unload all the worries. For now, I will simply ask for your prayers and well wishes for the things that are taking place. They will be much appreciated. And regardless of the outcome, I am eternally greatful for this experience and there is DEFINATELY a Plan B. :) G'nite all...much love.

Bring on the Ben & Jerry's

So how long has it been since I have written anything worth reading? Ohh...quite some time I fear. :)

Here's a rundown on what's been new:

* I broke down and bought an iPod. FABULOUS little device that has rekindled my love for music. Got any new faves? Send 'em my way...i'm looking to branch out.
* Took my last final today. THANK GOD! I couldn't be more happy that they're done, but of course, hindsight is 20/20 and I see now that I should have studied a LOT harder. I am disappointed in myself already and I haven't even seen the grades yet.
* I became a member of my church the Sunday before last. I am THRILLED with my decision and feel refreshingly different now. I am looking into joining a Lifegroup soon and am so excited! I know! Me and new things usually don't mesh...weird.
* I have developed a newfound love for country music. NOT ALL OF IT...but some, I must admit.
* I signed the lease on my new apartment last Monday and am SO EXCITED! Yay! I get to move in the week of Friday the 13th...spooky.
* Found out that the sofa I was supposed to get has been revoked. haha! I now have to look into buying living room furniture. The current decision is to sit on milk crates until I can afford something else.
* I can now speak of the "exciting news" from a previous post as I have confessed to my boss that I have applied for a new job. There is a very good chance I won't get it and I don't want to speak of it too much on here and jinx myself. It is a great opportunity and the whole process has been a learning experience, regardless of the outcome.
* I met a nice guy at church. That's it. We've met. Nothing else as of yet, I'll keep you posted.
* I went to get a poster framed at Hobby Lobby this weekend. The frame I picked out was going to cost $295. EEK! And that was 50% off people!! Needless to say, I chose a different...CHEAPER...frame.
* At this very moment I feel an unexplainable need to cry.
* It feels like Friday, but nope. Bummer. I have to work tomorrow AND sit through a staff meeting where I will be told I am to blame for things I didn't know I could be to blame for. Okay, so I'm mildly exaggerating, but what the heck. This is my blog. :)
* Heard on the radio that Huey Lewis and the News and Chicago will be at the OKC Zoo in June and I REALLY want to go!! Any takers?
* I think I'm getting sick. Allergies...blasted allergies.
* I have the best uncle in the whole world.
* Today is my roommate Caitlin's birthday! HAPPY 22!
* May 5th is my best FEMALE friend Kristen's (hi Drew!) birthday! YAY! HAPPY 24!
* May 5th my friend Sara has her RN pinning ceremony! Good job!
* May 6th is my roommate Matt's birthday! HAPPY 23!
* May 6th is also OSU Graduation...Congrats to Misty, Edwin & Matt!
* I learned that my friend A.J. is going to be a mommy...again! ANOTHER SQUISHY!
* My cousins Will & Joan found out they are going to be the proud parents of a baby boy!! YET ANOTHER SQUISHY!
* My office has the best kitty cat in the whole wide world (don't tell my cats I said that) for adoption and if you're interested you should leave me a message. Tommy wants a rockin' home so no posers aloud.
* Katie brought everyone in the office a Sonic Cherry-Limeade today and it MADE.MY.DAY. That girl rocks my face off. If I got this new job...I'd miss her lots. She's one of those "lifer" type friends though. She's a keeper.
* I have had more than my fair share of caffeinated beverages today and this blog post could very well be proof of that.
* I haven't eaten one healthy thing today.

I think that might actually be all...surprising? I think so. I'll try to keep you better informed now that school is OVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAY!! Come on! Everyone, celebrate with me. WHOORAH!
