Nov. 8th, 2008 @ 06:27 pm in a nutshell
Current Mood: complacentcomplacent

So my life the past few months has been quite interesting if I do say so myself. I’ve graduated college, moved twice, changed jobs twice and have been priveleged to witness election history last Tuesday. I’ve lost a good aquaintance to a horrible car accident, I’ve made some of the best friends one could ask for, and I’ve kept in touch with the friends I could never forget. I think Forrest Gump said it best; Life is certainly like a box of chocolates. 

I feel that all of my experiences will add up to something great one day. I have been really thinking of getting my masters or atleast going back to school for something. I miss learning. I don’t like the real world, but it’s not because I don’t want the responsibility. Its because I feel that I could be doing much better in it, so I’m unsatisfied. I’m going to start writing about my experiences on a daily basis, so that one day I can put them all together and who knows, maybe I’ll write a book, or maybe I will have great information to use in my thesis when and if I do get to grad school. Til then, I’m enjoying the little pleasures in life, and not really worrying about things I can’t control.

Current Music: Dad and Nick howling at the tv screen
So I haven't updated in... about forever. Since I left off, a lot has changed haha. Nick and I got the apartment in Jersey Shore, stayed from middle of May to August 1st. Then we moved in to a 3 bedroom half a double that is HUGE. We have a back fenced in yard, a garage (that still needs cleaned out), Brandon Park as our front yard, a front and back porch, an attic, upstairs, downstairs, and basement AND our landlord included a brand new washer and dryer to seal the deal. PLUS we are only paying $400 a month for rent. Our last apartment that was a one bedroom, 2nd floor apt was $370. So I think we're making out pretty well. AND our landlord is Bill Nichols, who runs City Bus and has connections to every penn state game, which he told us we could go to the next home game!!! I love it. Nick and I are doing extremely well. We have those little fights here and there but for the most part we are great. We have great neighbors, who are all gay lol but that's fine. Romeo loves it because it's so quiet, but still flips out on the occasional pedestrian. So yeah, great place, I never want to leave.

In other news, we met a couple at a wedding about a month and a half ago and it turns out they live right up the road from us. They are so great, we hang out about once or twice a week with them. The only downfall is that they are friends with the one person I cannot tolerate lol, we'll leave her name out though.

As far as the job is concerned, love working with the kiddos, hate working with the adults/office people. I also hate the inconsistent hours, and the long drive up to Lock Haven every day. So in other words, I've been looking for a new job. I want one that is closer to Williamsport, if not in Williamsport. I just can't do it that much longer, especially when the winter months come around. A. we want to save money, so gas prices don't help any and B. the snowy roads will make for a lot of call offs that I don't want to deal with. So I've been searching as much as I can, since we don't have the internet/cable/newspaper. We basically listen to the radio, watch movies, play gamecube, and play cards. It's actually kinda nice because it makes us spend more time together conversing. I know if I had the internet I would just be planted in my computer chair on here all the time. So yeah, it is possible to survive without tv or internet in the year 2008! Who woulda thought haha..

On another note, lastnight was our neighbors birthday and Danny came home. Nick and I met up with Danny at the Old Corner, and ran into our neighbors. At the same time, we ran into Jamal, who was one of my good friends in high school. We ended up all going to Club Z and dancing the whole night. Afterwards, Danny went home, and we went hot tubbing with our neighbors and Jamal showed up too! So we stayed up pretty much all night, went to bed finally when I am pretty sure it was starting to get light outside, and then woke up around 11:30. We told my dad we'd be out early to help him de-vine the grapes for his wine but that didn't happen. By the time we got here, he was on his last box of grapes. I felt really bad. Right now Nick and my dad are downstairs watching the football games on tv and eating a roast he cooked on the grill. Record high temps today of 91. I guess the last time it was 90 degrees was in 1952! So thats fun.

On a sad note, our friend Nick Baker died last week. On Monday. He was in a car crash that took his life. He was known to be a fearless driver and it finally caught up with him. :( We missed his funeral because as I mentioned earlier we don't get any outside news, and no one let us know when it was. It was Thursday during the day. I still want to visit his grave soon and maybe put flowers on it or something. I'm still creeped out about everything. You really never know when its your time to go. It's so scary...

Anyway, I guess that pretty much covers everything thats been going on in my life recently. Maybe I'll update a little more if we ever get the internet.

Spring Break was great. I had fun doing everything I normally do, only without school involved. I'm soooo sick of school and want this semester to be over as soon as possible. I have so many projects due, midterms to make up this week and I just want to sit on my ass and do nothing. I tried on a couple different outfits i bought, only i mixed and matched and now i can't wait to wear them lol. but i have to wait for warmer weather to wear any of them =(. today we went to the mall and i bought a really cute shirt from b moss. makes me feel sexy lol but i'm not sure where i'm going to wear it. its kind of dressy. i also bought sunglasses and a pair of really cute earings. so where's the warm weather? my sister reminded me of when i was in 10th grade and she was in college she came home the one day and put her bikini on and layed out in the sun and it was around this time of year. she said it was like 80 degrees or something and i vaguely remember so it should happen again..now. i think it's throwing me off that easter is so early this year. ahh well what are ya gonna do. anyway i have to get to work on my stupid soc project thats due tomorrow. see ya

Just got back from Faxon...smelling really bad of alcohol and cigarettes. i didn't drink and i don't smoke...so whats that tell ya? lol...the day was pretty good overall. i worked 11-5, came home got changed and jeremy and i went over to matt's. we made reservations finally for the beach!!! only a couple more months. ahhh i can't wait...7 days, ocean city MD. plus a day to go to Six Flags America. jeremy and i have decided that we're doing the Seasonal Pass cause we're gonna go another time also. but the place we're stayin at is fun, it has a grill, kitched, deck, living room and all that good stuff. oooooo it's gonna be so much fun i can't wait. anyway...after we got all that taken care of, we all headed to The Bridge and got some food. Samara and I were starving cause we both hadn't eaten all day. it was around 9 when we were done so we decided to go to the astro bowling at faxon. jeremy and i were the first to get there so we decided to go tanning lol....it turned out to be fine because when we were done, Samara and Matt still hadn't arrived and we were still waiting on a lane. in the mean time we played a couple rounds of Ski Ball (best arcade game ever) and won a bunch of tickets. we came up with over a couple hundred i think haha...we had fun bowling except for these annoying slutty teenagers that were next to us with their 30 year old boyfriends lol...the one girl had a halter top on (IT'S STILL WINTER!!) and kept stealing our ball so i of course had to scream. but yeah, i'm quite tired and smelly right now so i think i'm gonna take a quick shower and head to bed. nite nite =)

Current Mood: awakeawake
Sooooo it's Friday! I have tests in all my classes today and I have projects in all my other classes due the day we come back from Spring Break. BLAH oh well, I'm so happy the midterm that I thought I had no chance of passing on, I somehow ended up getting a 90% on it!! so yay for me...I work 4-9 tonight, also get my paycheck which is funny since I haven't even deposited the last one. maybe that's a sign that I don't really need a job lol. Yesterday sucked, Jeremy wasn't in anthro cause poor Zoey got beat up by another dog and he had to take her to the vet. After anthro I had to go to the hospital to get a stupid physical for lock haven. it turned out that one of my shots (PPD) was expired so i had to get another one =( it sucked!! i hate shots...in case you don't know which one it is, it's where they put a needle under your skin and a little bubble swells up and then goes back down. SO anyway, then I went over to Jeremy's house to see how Zoey was doing and we picked up The Exorcist. ehhhhhhhh didn't like that movie at all. but okay i have to go to class, didn't realize what time it was!
