Memorial Day Weekend!

I’ve finally gotten a job! Woohoo! Its working in a preschool in the 1 yr olds room. I’m super excited because I get to wear scrub tops to work. :D

Its going pretty well so far. I’ve worked three days. I like the kids, they’re cute. And I have tomorrow off. WOOT. We shall see. At least its Monday

I babysat overnight Thursday and Friday night. Which is kinda annoying. Especially since my cousin came in town. But whatever, its money too.

We had a little cook-in tonight with friends. (with burgers and hot dogs and chicken that was from our grill but we ate inside. haha). Then we made smores and ate ice cream it was lovely.


We also went to the flea market today. After a little adventure to find an ATM we looked around for a bit. And lo and behold we found these…

Yes, they’re pick axes. SCARY! Just sitting in a box at the flea market. Yikes.

My outfit for the flea market.

I also bought a wizard of oz puzzle. Hopefully it has all the pieces. Yay.

Bookshelf we moved to the front room. Now we have tons of room for our books!

Anyway.. that’s about it.

Off to watch harry potter 6.

La Dee Da

Lovely hydrangeas that have been blooming in the backyard!

Well, no luck on the job front. But I’ve got a few more babysitting days lined up which is good.

Other than that, I’ve been doing a whole lot of nothing. Today I actually got some stuff accomplished by cleaning up around the house and doing laundry. YAY for productivity. But I also play a lot of Sims… haha.

Also, I’m a bit hungry.. hm I should eat some lunch.

I watch a lot of Law and Order SVU, Baby Story, and yesterday I watched and ANTM marathon. So, I’ve gotten a lot done lately!

We tie dyed earlier in the week so I have an awesome new blue and purple tie dye shirt.

I’m reading Shirin Ebadi’s book Iran Awakening right now. Its actually from my Gender and Religion class last semester.. but I never got around to reading it since it was an extra credit assignment. Its a fascinating read about Iran before, during and after the revolution. The list of books that I want to read is growing longer and longer because I keep seeing books I want to read but I don’t ever finish the ones I’m already reading.

I’m so excited for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter to open! Hopefully we’re going the week after the grand opening. EEE! I’m ready.

Well, I’m off to read or watch SVU or something.

summer time

mr. theodore

Happy Thursday!

I am excited that it is almost Friday, although I don’t really know why. I mean it’s not like I’ve been doing much this week so Friday isn’t any different than the rest of the week.

I’ve dropped off even more applications… I probably should be looking for a few more. Since no one has called me back yet. UGH. I hate jobhunting, and jobs and trying to make money. Oh well I keep hoping something will happen…

I’m probably going to Orlando this weekend to see my cousin in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. I love this show.. So I’m excited. Not so excited about spending time in the car… but oh well.

Other than that I’ve been reading quite a bit.. And watching some tv. I’m trying to be good about doing something artistic each day, since I don’t have to work. Writing, or taking photos, or painting or something. I’ve been pretty good about it. I babysat yesterday… and I have to again on Monday. It wasn’t too bad.

I skyped with my friend Heather last night. And we had a puppy playdate over skype too. It was hilarious. I had my two puppies and she had hers and we were talking to the dogs and trying to get them to look at the computer. Haha. Oh good times.

Well, off I go to watch more reality TV. hahah

recent headshot session I did with myself. :D

Hello blogosphere!

Long time no see. Been pretty busy I guess. Got through the wedding last weekend and through the first week at home this summer! Mostly I’ve been busy hanging out with friends that are only here for a few days, and applying for jobs. I’ve dropped off my application quite a few places… but haven’t heard from anyone yet. Unfortunately with a sucky economy and possible oil spill coming our way…. Most people aren’t hiring.

The wedding went well and it was very pretty. The weather wasn’t amazing, it was definitely windier and more overcast than we would have hoped for.. but it was still beautiful!

So, now I’ll continue to try to find a job and apply to a bunch of places. Hopefully something will turn up. :x

I also have a monster of a cold/allergy attack going on which is really annoying. Thanks a lot yellow pollen! Hopefully it will get better soon.

I watched An Education and Nine this week. I’d already seen Nine but I still loved it again. I absolutely love Marion Cotillard in everything she does. And I like Kate Hudson in that movie. An Education was a lovely little indie flick. I loved it because there were awesome clothes and British accents! Haha.

I would really like to go see that movie Babies that came out yesterday. I read that it’s kinda boring… but I really love babies so I think I’ll like it. And I’m sure I’ll get dragged to see Iron Man 2. Which I don’t really mind. Out of all the super hero movies, iron man is pretty good.

I did pretty well on my finals and managed an A, 2 A-'s, a B+ and a B this semester! And I made the Dean's list which I was happy about!

Other than that, I’m enjoying sleeping and being lazy. We’ll see what else happens..

(well, i was going to post a few pics from the wedding, but it won't upload them! Ugh.)
