remember me?

Hi. Remember me, the author of this neglected blog? lol. Yes, I’m still alive. A bunch has happened in my life since graduation, and I haven’t written about it all summer!!! So, let me catch you up a little (I know I promised graduation pics in my last post, but catching up is more important and quite frankly, other people’s pictures can be really boring so I’m doing this instead).

So, to start off I should tell you I am now in college full time. I am working towards an interior design degree, although I am not sure what will happen after I finish that in 2 years – I may go to another school or do another degree in art, I dunno. My classes right  now are Interior Design I and Textiles, they are pretty interesting but one of my teachers kind of scares me and the other one seems like she should be in school with me instead of teaching my classes. Oh well. It’s the credit hours that count, right?

Secondly, my life is now supplemented by the fact that I have a job. I work at the craft store (how perfect, huh?) and it is going well. My managers are quite reasonable. Almost all the employees are female so I am making a lot of friends and acquaintances. In case you were wanting to know, we don’t sell rubber bands. Sorry. Walmart is across the street.

Another thing you might want to know is that we bought some bunnies. Two of them. They are so cute. We got them as babies in June but they aren’t very small anymore. I never knew bunnies could be so noisy until we had some living in our basement. I will have to take recent pictures, but there’s a picture above of them at just a few weeks old (when we took them home). The one on the left is Herbert Ninninger and on the right is Sundae – named for the rabbit on Curious George and the kind of ice cream that is yummy, respectively. Herbert earned the nickname “the Terdinator” on the way home when we bought him, but Sundae has taken over that title. Meanwhile, Herbert loves to eat cheerios.

In other news, Anna is finally walking. Liam has become a Blue Angels fanatic. And Sarah is entering that phase of life where she would like to have her own phone to talk to her best friend whenever she wants. Ahhh, youth.

I can’t think of anything else noteworthy at the moment, except I was thinking of turning this into a design blog.


Thanks for reading! I will probably be busy right into next quarter, but I’ll try harder to blog more often. Have a cheesy day!

the scoop

So I haven’t blogged in a while. I’ve been super busy. I’m beginning to realize that people who blog every day must not have lives.

My car is not fixed. The first shop we took it to just happened to be out of business and we didn’t even know (it was after hours when we dropped it off). So, we brought it back home. Then we took it to another shop. They said nothing was wrong with it – of course, it started for them and behaved beautifully the whole time, why is this? – and so we brought it home again. the next day my mom drove it someplace without a problem, and in the afternoon I was all set to drive myself to dance class… And it wouldn’t start.

I am beginning to think my car has betrayed me. It hurts.

So goes the saga of my car up to this point. It’s sitting in the driveway, mostly dead. And I am having to schedule everything around my mom because I have to use her van if I want to go anywhere. I’m not really that bothered by it, but it would just be so much nicer if my car would cooperate. Oh well.

Besides my car, there has been some other stuff keeping me busy. I graduate on May 2nd so I’m trying to wrap a lot of stuff up for that. Took the ACT yet again on Saturday, which was exhausting (always is for me. other people don’t seem to have this problem). I love how the rules of the test barely let students breathe while in the testing room, but the teacher administering the test can kick back at his computer and check his email while drinking coffee. So, so unfair. All I want is a sip of water in the middle of the horrendous math test! – which seems much more reasonable than coffee. I guess at least the guy wasn’t mean or anything. He kind of had a sense of humor, which was good, but he wasn’t really acting nice. you know? I’m sure he is normally nice, but he probably isn’t as nice when he has to get up at like six on a Saturday to sit in a stone silent room for 4 hours. At least that’s how it goes for me. Last year, I had like the nicest ACT test teacher person ever. I don’t even remember why I liked him. He was just funny and cool about the whole thing. I still remember his name because it was on the wall in his classroom. If I went to public school, I’d pick that school just so I could be in his class.

Okay maybe not.

Anyway, with graduation, senior banquet, prom AND spring formal coming up in the next 2-3 months, I am in a quandary about dresses. Now, I realize you people don’t care what I wear, but I do and I don’t know what to wear. I bought a purple dress for one of the above, but I don’t know which one. I have that lace one I was going to wear to fall formal but didn’t which I was going to wear to prom, but now that I have the purple one I might wear it to prom and wear the lace one for spring formal and just wear church clothes for senior banquet, and that leaves graduation, on which we have already spent so much money and I hate to buy a dress for it. * inhale * Sorry.

So, that’s about all that’s happening with me. Oh, that and I bought a chandelier and found some jewelry from the 50’s, and I wish I could go back in time and live in the era of gumball machine and cereal box charms.
