May 2011

I steal balls from little kids.

Last Thursday we had a staff bonding thing at our boss’s house.  Most of the 33 people that should have been there were there.  This is such a change from the 18 people we have had my last two years as a RA.  I am still trying to figure out how I feel about it.  Ask anyone and they will tell you.  I.  Don’t.  Like.  Change.

I don’t want to sound like a broken record but not having a car really sucks.  It means that I have to rely on other people and I am a very independent person so this is not going well.  It’s almost been a month and I am to the point where I NEED a car.

Anyone on a kinda new topic.  I’ve been stressed about finals, and finding a job, and getting a car, but this last weekend I was able to forget about that for just a small amount of time.  I went out with friends and I had a blast.  I miss hanging out with people and actually enjoying myself.  I had kinda forgotten what it felt like.  One thing I know for sure is that this summer is going to be really hard since I still don’t know where I am going to be and if I will be close to my friends or not.

We will see what happens in the next week and a half.  My fingers are crossed that my insurance company tells me that I can go car shopping this week.  It would really make this finding a job thing a lot easier.


The awesome bulletin board I made

This is the last week of classes before finals start and I’m a little stressed.  Okay, I’m a lot stressed.   This is my 6th semester of college and this is the first time that I actually have 5 finals.  That’s right…I have a final for every single one of my classes.  Only one of them is going to cover everything we have gone over since January, but still…5 finals.  In case you were wondering that means I have a final Wednesday, two on Thursday, and two on Tuesday.

Last night I finished my 20 page public relations plan for a local business.  I have no idea if I did it right but I finished it and all I have left to do it get it bound nice and pretty before I turn it in.

I have one 5 page paper to write before finals start but I am meeting with my professor today to talk about what I should be looking for because I picked a random topic…hopefully she can put me on the right track.

I had the interview at Our House for the AmeriCorps Vista associate and I was excited before I got there.  They are only looking for 15 people and at the interview session on Saturday there were about 40 people and that session was not mandatory.  I’m not too optimistic about it anymore but that’s okay.

I am still looking for a job, however since I don’t have a car that is kind of on hold.  It’s hard to look for a job without a car and without a car I can’t get a job and without a job I can’t afford a car.  It’s an evil cycle.

I’m also still looking for a place to live which could help get rid of that evil cycle mentioned above…it’s hard to find a place to live without a car as well.

Well that’s an update on my life currently.
