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 moving.to.Tulsa. Damn. (He also has a child and smokes...so 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! :)
