So. About two weeks and I move. I am full of different emotions. I'm super happy to get out of my job and to just have a change for once. But also really nervous because I'm not used to SUPER small towns and it'll be the first time Russell and I are really on our own. Scary! I'm sure we'll be fine, but it's still a scary thing to think about.

I have a lot of stuff to do before I leave. I need to get school stuff figured out. I need to get a few more things for the new apartment. and I slowly need to start thinking about packing things up.

My mom and sister came over yesterday. It was the first time that they had come over and actually stayed for awhile. Go figure, haha, I've been living in the Glen for 2 years and the first time they stay for awhile is two weeks before I move out. Hah. Oh well. We played games and ate fondue (home-made from Russell) and Blarney Stones (home-made from me). Both were pretty good.

I've been into baking. I like it. A lot. It's something that I feel confident about, like I can actually do well in it. I think when I move I'm going to try and made meals more. We'll see how that lasts.

Russell and I have been watching lost. We're half way through the 5th season. So intense. I can't wait to finish it.

Wooooooooo! I'm off to San Francisco (With a pit stop in Arlington!). I'm SO excited to have a vacation, and with Russell. Added bonus. Let's see how our first real one goes.

Deedee's party was fun. My kind of party. Nice, low key, everyone likes everyone. It was good. I'm gonna miss that girl. :( But I'll see her in December, so we're all good.

Have a good week... whoever may read this, ha.

Nights like these I'm so happy I live in an apartment with just Russell. It's just such a calm, relaxing night. A little hot, but I like it. No annoying people (other than the kids that we work with) and we do what we want! Ahhhh yeah!

Well, I've been stressing a lot of things that Russell and I need to get taken care of. It sucks though, because I can't really do anything until we move so I'm going insane. AH! Oh well. I've been looking for jobs and such. I think I found one I'm really interested in, so hopefully I can get the application and get my resume done and all that by then. Fingahs crossed.

We leave for San Francisco on the 21st! So excited. I need a vacation... and it will be Russell and my's FIRST real vacation EVER in the last 3 1/2 years that we've been dating. MUCH over due. Yay yay yay.

Work ends very very very very soon. and I could NOT be any more pumped for this. I haven't not worked since before High School. I think I've had a job for 5 straight years... Say WHAT?! Yeah.

Russell, Lucy, Nicole, My mom and I went to the opening of Forever 21. THe first 200 people got giftcards ranging from 10 to 210 dollars. We had to be there. So we showed up, waited in line, and when it was time we were all handed the cards. My sister and mom got 10 dollars, I got 20 dollars, Nicole got 50 dollars and Russell got 100!!!!! So that was a success. We all got some clothes and what not (except my mom, but have no fear, so bought some boots at a different store!). It was a definite Saturday success.

fini.

I've been kind of missing lately. Not seeing or talking to anyone. I'm in a very strange mood. and, kind of stressed what with San Franny coming up soon, and my cousin's wedding soon, and moving soon, and quitting soon, and possibly going BACK to school soon, and figuring out the new job situation, and etc etc.

The list is endless. I've got to figure things out. I know I'm a complainer. You don't have to tell me, haha.

Charlie isn't doing the best, either. Silly bunny, needs to stop chomping on his feet... (weird long story...)

Hopefully I get everything worked out soon so that I can rest easy.

I've still got to write my summative eval... ugh... that is, if I decide to write one. We'll see.

Hot yoga is going pretty good. I feel better afterward, I have been sleeping better, and my skin is softer... weird, I know. It's nice to work out in a really hot (105 - 107 degrees) room and know you're sweating out bad toxins. It's also nice because you are working out and doing some really tough poses and strengthening yourself, but you're not panting or anything. I really like it. I just wish it was cheaper. It is SO expensive and right now, I have zero money. Kind of a bummer. Hopefully I figure something out.

Work has been pretty intense... there's been a lot of it and it feels like there is a bit more than usual just because of other co-workers not pulling their weight. I'm tired a lot of the time (as I'm sure Russell is too, he works waaaaaay more than me, like 12 hour days every day). Another reason why Hot Yoga is nice. It's a little getaway where no one is talking to you (other than the instructor) and your phone isn't next to you. You're just by yourself.

Besides work things have been going good. I'm happy. It's amazing how simple things can change and it can make you light up.

I want to see Inception. Ugh. I've heard nothing but good things about it. Russell and I are watching Lost on Netflix too (I know, I know, a little late, but I can't really watch T.V. shows on T.V. ... I'm not good at it, and Charlie chewed the cable cord so now we reallllly can't watch anything. :( Bummer). I'm liking it. We have two more seasons left.

That's about it. I'm just waiting for students to arrive. We have four more tonight until we can go to bed. Sucks though because we are probably going to get to bed around 3 and we have to have the students up and ready at 7. So lame.

I'm going to my first day of hot yoga today. I'm super nervous. I don't know exactly what to expect, except that I am going to be sweating like a mad woman and hopefully I can last 90 minutes in a 105 degree room, haha. I'm excited though. It'll be an experience. I'm going to do it every day for a week and if I like it then I'm going to continue to go, at least while I"m here. If I still want to when I move I'll have to find a place there that has hot yoga. We'll see.

I'm dying my hair dark brown soon. I'm excited for that. Yay Yay Yay.

Lakefair is going on. I want to go, but I don't know if I have a good time that I CAN go... we'll see. Maybe Saturday.

I have about 2 more months till I move. Excccccciting.

Certain things really get to me, and rightfully so. To say that someone has done all they could with 80% of the world knows they've done jack shit is messed up. If you did all you could (and let me tell you, with the resources that people have, they can do a LOT), then major issues and problems surrounding you would not still be happening. I'm sure this doesn't even make sense, but it does to me. I guess I can't see how people can sit back and let such huge things happen, when it is murdering and harming animals, plants, and people. Messed up.

I also hate how hurried everyone is around me. I know everyone is late sometimes and just has to go quick or else you won't make it to work or a meeting or an appointment, but every day? If you're going to be as rude as to SLAP money on the counter and sigh several times waiting for my coffee order to be made, then get here a few minutes early. Because seriously, it's rude, and we're at a freaking coffee stand... I'm going to order a coffee drink. So chill out. I see this people every day almost. They know I'll usually be there. So go a little earlier and get ahead of me. I guess it just made me realize that it's not so bad to just sit back and relax. Enjoy some really small things in life.

I've been working and sleeping. That's basically it. It's not so bad, kind of isolating... and has obviously given me time to sleep (sorry, haha).

Well, I'm just going to go.

Russell has been working a lot. I've been working a decent amount. We're both pretty tired and worn out. All we want to do is go home and eat then sleep, hahahah. So lame. Oh well. He's going to have a pretttttttty huge check this month. So that is VERY nice. Yay yay yay. I'll still be getting the same as I usually do in the summer, hahah. Oh well.

I think I am going to apply to Central to get my BS and then maybe the paramedics program there... but evergreen is SO slow and my transcript still isn't done.... I think I'm going to go in and talk to them about what the deal is, yo'.

Russell made Pizza for breakfast. So gross.

I'm getting more excited for San Francisco (August!). And Hawaii (December!!!). and I've been looking honestly and tickets and stuff for Iceland (hopefully in July or August!). I'm so ready to travel and live a bit. Tired of the same ol' job every day...

That is basically all that has been happening to me. Really nothing spectacular.

I graduate in basically 9 days. Can you believe it? I have one more class period tomorrow (well, today, but basically tomorrow) and then I'm done with my BA forever! Then, on to bigger better things. Hopefully.

I'm getting more excited. But I think it's a mixture of a lot of things. It being June, me graduating, Michael coming home, Russell coming back over here, etc etc. I just am really excited for the month of June.

I went out to eat with Megan and Elana tonight. I really liked it. We went to Quality Burrito, which has delicious burritos, but kind of sucky service. It's okay though. It gave us time to talk and catch up. I may not have made a billlllllion friends in College, but I am definitely satisfied with the 5 or 10 people who I'm really close with. I'm okay with it like that.

I'm meeting up with my sister tomorrow. And then on Friday my mom, sister, and I are going to Oregon for the weekend. Then, that Wednesday Russell comes home, that Thursday Michael comes home, that Friday I graduate, and that Saturday we havin' a BBQ! This is going to move quick!

Wellllll, I'm going to go to bed because I have to wake up kind of early tomorrow.

If any of you guys out there have any ideas for a job for someone with a BA in Health Science let me know! I still don't know what I like and am willing to explore.

I'm trying to finish all of my school work right now so I don't have to really stress the last week and a half, but how dull is it to write a paper on Broccoli? Seriously? And if I don't want to do that, you know what the other paper I have to write is on? Molasses. Really? So. Boring. I can't sleep. Didn't sleep last night. Sucks.

Highlight of my day: Drinking some Silk chocolate soymilk. That's it. That is what I've accomplished today. Impressed, I know.

I still don't know what I want to do after I graduate. I contacted a program I wanted to do, but never got an email back. SO that's pretty sucky. Oh well. Wasn't meant I guess.

That's all I got.
