I Saved All My Pennies For The Well

brainwave-entrainmentWell, what do you think? My first made from SCRATCH theme. Whoo-hoo. I think it turned out rather well. The drop shadow didn’t turn out as good as I had hoped but it’ll do for now.

I had the worst weekend. I went home because my dog was really sick (not eating or sleeping, breathing really hard, and bleeding internally) so we put her to sleep on Saturday. I’ve been a basket case since. This was the hardest animal to lose. God, I miss her so much. Anyway, to avoid a completely morbid post, I’ll move on but before I do.

Other than THAT, I graduate in less than three weeks. I’m SO excited. I’ll get out of this 12×12 room or whatever it is and have a real life, as long as I get into law school. I still haven’t heard yet. Hopefully I do relatively soon.

The road to my degree is a rather strange one, though. I screwed up at high school and I actually had to take the GED test to get into college. Today, there are a few pretty good online GED class sites, but in my days it wasn’t quite like that.

Brandon’s been in Louisiana for almost the whole month of April training for deployment so we have barely talked. I miss him like crazy. Hopefully he gets leave to come home for my graduation which is highly unlikely but by then it will have been 4 months since we’ve seen each other. That’s a looooong time isn’t it?

I have a sinus infection. It sucks. I am going to drug myself so I can sleep tonight!

FINALS WEEK

Finals week is finally here. I got a ton of studying to do today. I’m beyond excited though because I graduate on January 13th and then I’m OUT OF HERE for good. I never have to come back to this place again. Seriously, I don’t see how anyone could miss this place. I’ll miss the people, yes but not this place, just proving how far I got since earning my GED diploma!

My finals schedule isn’t too bad:

Monday – 10 am and 1 pm
Tuesday – NONE
Wednesday – 10 am 1 pm
Thursday – 8 am (boo.. too early)
Friday – FREEEEEEEEDOM
Saturday – Graduation/moving out/GOING HOME

I have a couple huge decisions to make in the next month so I’m beyond stressed. I’m trying to figure out where I’m going to law school and I may also be getting married soon (this is a happy thing). We know we are going to get married, its just when?

On May 24th, I’m leaving for NC to spend about a week with Brandon. Its been 4 months since we’ve seen each other so this is greatly needed! I love you!

Back to studying now! Have a great week everyone!

BACK FROM VACATION

*sigh* I got back on Thursday night about 8:30. Saying goodbye to Brandon gets harder every time, not easier. He’ll be home in 5 days though so I can’t really complain too much. I moved into my apartment yesterday! I live with my cousin now. Its so amazing. I spent the day gathering applications from EVERYWHERE so then I spent 3 hours or more tonight filling them out. Tomorrow I’m going to distribute them back to places and home I get a call this week.

Target has the weirdest application process, ever. I love that store though and I hope I get hired there. Although, I’d probably spend most of my paycheck. A bunch of other places were hiring though that seem like fun so I’m hoping out of the 25 apps I filled out, at least one will call me for a job.

I’m catching up on a week’s worth of GH that I missed right now. I’ve missed my GH soooo much. It’s my guilty pleasure. I’m heading to bed now so I can get up early and take care of my errands!

LONG TIME NO POST?

Well, Brandon was home on 2 weeks of leave and he just left yesterday so I was busy spending every second with him. Want the big news?

WE’RE ENGAGED. He proposed on June 13th, 2015 after he asked my father’s permission. The ring is GORGEOUS and I barely ever take it off because I just love what it stands for. Now we just need to pick a date. I believe it will be June 16, 2016 if he doesn’t get deployed and June 14 if he does. Now, the fun part begins! Dresses, decorations, reception halls, churches. Oh boy. All of this and my first year of law school in a month or so. So exciting and scary all at once.

Well, that’s about it for news except I got a job finally. I’m working at Sears and I get a 20% discount on apparel. I absolutely LOVE the people I work with and everything. I just wish it didn’t take between 40 and 60 minutes to get to work with traffic. Boo. Hopefully I can figure something else out for the school year because I can’t do that after class.

Well, I gotta shower so I can go put more job apps in today!

ROAD TRIP

I’m gonna post before I leave on Wednesday night for my road trip to NC to see Brandon for the first time in 4 months. I’m moving into my apartment hopefully June 4th. I haven’t found a job yet but I think I have an interview tomorrow and this is the job I really want. Sounds like the boss is awesome.

What else? I should be in bed right now because my niece and nephew are coming tomorrow at 8 a.m. and they’ll be coming up to get me up soon after. My nephew Dylan comes up and goes “Good Morning. Good Morning. Good Morning.” Its so cute though.

My parents bought a new car. Its hot. Click here for a pic of it I’m so jealous. That’s the color I want my new car that I’ll get in 20 years. Bermuda Green Metallic. Its scrumptious. I’m heading to DeKalb tomorrow for a job interview hopefully and then I leave at 5 p.m. Wednesday for a week so I’ll be back after. I’m gonna get to see the OCEAN for the first time, ever.
