Where I’ve Been…


Oh’ boy, has it been awhile. It seems as if this summer has just flown by. Even if I still have a month left at home. Though, some of you may have been wondering what I was up to in my absence.

To be honest, I’ve mostly been working. I got a job with a catering company and this is their busiest season. Though it’s been stressful, it’s been nice putting some money back into my savings for when school starts. I have also been working on my resume and some applications in an attempt to secure a job while at school. How else am I to support my shopping habits?

We got a puppy. Last fall we had to put our family dog down. So after some time to heal, I finally convinced my Mother that we needed a new member of the family. Dixie is our 7 month old troublemaker. She is a ball of energy and always has you on your toes.

Just catching up with old friends. I try to take any opportunity to spend time with my friends that chose to pursue their education out-of-state. We all have such different schedules, so every second together is cherished. We know it’s only going to get harder from here on, so we make sure not to waste a chance to hang out.

I don’t like summer. Period. I have about 3 outfits that are appropriate for this type of weather.

Getting projects done. I moved all my furniture up to my apartment last month. Before that, I was busy fixing things up and getting them ready to move. Lots of spray paint was involved.

But, most of all I’ve been relaxing. This past school year took a toll on me emotionally. With plenty of stressful moment and equally rewarding ones, I just needed a break from myself. To take a bit of time to decompress and reevaluate some things. It paid off, because I’m ready to start the year anew.
