[mood |chipperchipper]

Since it's been over a month I should probably update...

Since June I:

-- have been working alot, but I have a lot more free time now that my summer classes are over

-- turned 21 yay!

-- got my hair cut short and I love it :)

-- survived 9 days w/o Brandon while he was out Cruisin'

-- have been wondering when I will start my internship...finally got a date: Next Tuesday

-- have had lots of fun doing all kinds of things...it's been a great summer so far!

I really don't have much else to say. Life is going well, no complaints. With nothing to vent about..my entries stay short!

So it's been a really long time... [Jun. 9th, 2004|09:51 pm]
[mood |exhaustedexhausted]

This full time job/full time student thing doesn't leave a whole lot of free time. Granted, at my job it's very slow (since we are a new pharmacy) so I get all my school work done then, but still it's 40 hours out of my week. I do love my job though. It's wonderful.

School is the most time consuming out of the two. Eventhough I am only taking 2 classes, they are 5 week classes, so I have a ton of homework! And I have class 3 nights a week for 3 hours. But I am taking a liking to this whole accounting thing. It's very complicated, but I enjoy the challenge.

Yeah, so ever since the last week of May, I have been running a crazy schedule. But I like it. I could use a little more sleep, but other than that, it's all good.

Hopefully, by July I will have some more free time to do things. Right now my only free time is after 930pm. And I have off on the weekends usually, but that gets filled with cleaning, studying and other things.

I hope everyone is doing well!

Ta ta!

My Weekend... [May. 24th, 2004|12:15 am]
[mood |lovedIn Love]

I had an amazing weekend! I got to spend a lot of time with Brandon, which is always great, but it was especially great this weekend because Saturday was our anniversary. :)

We went to the HFStival (so romantic, I know, but it's only perfect for us to spend the day that way!) and we had a blast. Eventhough traffic and driving in DC was crazy, the line to get is was super long and the heat was ridiculous, our day was great! JCS played the locals stage and put on a great show. Jimmie did a stage dive right on top of us and I got to touch his butt! HA! ANd we got to see alot of other bands like the Offspring who were especially good. The last time I saw them, the singer was way off, so I was pleased to hear them do so well this time.

Today was a lounge around the house kinda day. We made breakfast and played Nintendo, oh and I cleaned. That's not any fun but the rest of the day was.

So, tomorrow is my first day at BJ's. I can't wait. I have to get up very early too, which is why I need to go to bed now :)

so... [May. 15th, 2004|07:51 pm]
[mood |calmcalm]

...i'm praying for progress. things are starting to look up. I hope it only get's better.

Last week at Giant this week, and I work 45 hours. Only because someone is on vacation though. If it were like that all the time I wouldn't need to quit. But I am glad that I am. It will be so much less stressful.

Looks like I get to be a sale's assistant for my internship with Skylight Creative Ideas. That is so awesome! I will actually get to help out with sales. I can't wait!

HFStival next weekend (yay!)...and my 1 year anniversary :) WOW. In some ways I can't believe it's been a year already and in others it seems like it could be much longer. And even though we have our struggles, I wouldn't trade any of it for the world. :)

Ok, that's all for now. Just felt like adding a quick update.

School's out for the summer... [May. 11th, 2004|01:20 pm]
[mood |happyhappy]

...I wish! But at least I have off for 2 1/2 weeks!

It will be so nice to have a break from classes.

Met up with one of my past (and most favorite) professors today. I miss having classes with him, but what can I do? I already took all the classes he teaches :) We had a nice chat about college and life. It was fun.

Feeling very anti-social lately. Don't know why. Oh well.

That's about it!

Totally stressed out... [May. 11th, 2004|12:12 am]
[mood |stressedCould I BE anymore stressed?!]

I don't know why but I am very stressed lately. It just seems that I don't have enough time in the day to get things accomplished. And I have so many things to worry about (some things aren't really mine to be worrying about, but I do) and it's building up. I am nervous about my new job, worried about having enough time for classes and working full time, wondering about what kind of financial aid I will get, way stressed over my taxes and other bills, plus other things. I can't wait to be financially stable again. I think (more like I hope) I will be by the end of summer. I hope to have my one and only credit card paid off then and have some extra cash to spare.

I wish I had the time to take a vacation. But, since I am starting a new job, I don't think that will happen until we know how busy we will be. Since I am the only technician, I can't just ask off as soon as we open.

On a side note, I also need a new Friends DVD. I keep watching the same episodes over and over again, and I am down 3 DVD's anyways. My "Best of Friends" set has been missing for awhile, and I don't know who has them. I only have the 3rd one. Plus a friend of my mom's is borrowing my Season 5 set, so I only have Season 3 and the other DVD. I need some new episodes to watch.

Giant is so crazy right now. We have a new technican training, who is rumored to be very lazy and unmotivated and a new pharmacist who is still learning the ropes. I can not wait for these next two weeks to be over. I want out.

I think I need to take a break from worrying about other people's problems. I have too many things of my own to deal with right now, so I am just going to worry about me for awhile. I need it. I think I ignore too many things of my own. I need to get my life in order first before trying to do that for someone else.

Time is flying by lately. I can't believe it's almost June already. I can't believe it's been almost a year since Brandon and I started dating. I also can't believe I am almost 21. It seems like it was just January, or even more, just this time last year.

Ok I am done relaying my random thoughts. It's late.

Update [May. 4th, 2004|02:35 pm]
[mood |busybusy]

Life has been so crazy lately!

The semester is almost over, so needless to say I have had projects and tests galore! But, now all I have left are my 2 finals. And then I have off until the first week of June. Too bad that's not very long. But it's ok I can handle 5 weeks of summer classes. That is, if I have summer classes...depends on if Harford can ever get my financial aid stuff straightened out. I have been waiting for a week, and they still have no record of my application eventhough I have an email from the FAFSA site saying it has been processed. I don't get it. I just want to make sure I have the money to take my classes. Otherwise I have to pay for it myself, and I don't have $700 right now.

Two weeks left at Giant. Can't wait to leave. It has been very crazy there and it's only going to get worse. Between scheduling problems, and this whole merger thing with Stop and Shop it's been stressful at work. I look forward to being able to make my own schedule and not having anyone else to conflict with.

Found out more about this summer internship. I have a choice to take it in the summer or fall. And while I would love to take it in the fall, because I would be able to help out with a big trade show, I think I have to take it in the summer because I won't have time otherwise. I will be working 40 hours and taking 14 credits. Another 15 hours/week for an internship may be too much. I have to call the guy and discuss it with him though. But, regardless of when I decide to take it, I definitely have it :)

I drove to New York this past Saturday. Had a blast. Brandon and I, went to see a show Justin was directing, called "A Night of Dialogue." It was a one man show that one his friend Brian starred in. They both co-wrote the play and both did an excellent job. Brandon and I were very impressed :) Also, got to see lots of people that I haven't seen in awhile: Justin's Mom, Dad, his Grandparents, and Nana, his neighbor Chuck and Jake and his Mom. We all went to the matinee and went out for dessert afterwards. After dessert, Justin's family had to catch the motor coach home and Justin had to go back for the evening show, so Brandon and I went around the city. Sadly, Brandon has only been to New York twice so he has a lot to learn ;) I took him on the subway for his first time, and we toured Times Square. This summer we are going to go up a few times so he can get a chance to see some other parts of the city besides Times Square. I can't wait! :)

Thursday is the Friends finale. So sad! Chrissie is having a party, so Brandon and I are going over her house. Yay!

I guess that's all for now!

New job (yeah another one!) [Apr. 27th, 2004|09:43 pm]
[mood |excitedexcited]
[music |John Mayer "Love Song for No One" --stuck in my head]


So... since my Giant has been screwing up schedules and cutting hours like crazy...I am leaving! Plus all the pharmacists will be gone by June and who knows who the replacement will be! My last day is May 21st. (2 months after I started..ha!)

So, now I'll be working for for BJ's pharmacy in White Marsh with Kristin and Rebecca, 2 of my pharmacists from Giant. I'll be working full-time at $9/hr and I'll have benefits in 90 days. I am sooo...happy! :) I start May 24th. They won't be open until then.

So, other than that life is crazy right now. Only 3 classes left this semester, so needless to say, I have a ton of work to do. Then I have a few weeks off before I start my three 5 week summer classes.

Ok, that's all for now.

Blah... [Apr. 24th, 2004|01:26 pm]
[mood |blahblah]

In reference to the previous post...I owe money again. There was a mistake in my claim. It sucks.

It's been a rough couple of days. I don't feel like going into much detail. Just alot of crap going on in every aspect of my life.

Saw JCS last night...had fun for the most part, only a few exceptions. Show was awesome though. Love the new Album. Buy it, you'll like it.

I can' wait until the semester ends. I think I'll take a few days off then. I need a break.

Thats all I feel like saying...I'll post more when I am in a better mood.

Tax Day [Apr. 15th, 2004|09:10 pm]
[mood |relievedrelieved]

Today was supposed to be a pretty bad day...and it was at midpoint. But it turned out to be much better than expected.

Two months ago when my mom did my taxes it showed i owed $414. We never filed though because we wanted to make sure it was correct. Well today if course is tax day. When I went to get everything together I remembered that nothing had been filed and we had since rebooted my old computer. So everything that was done on Turbo ax was lost. So at 5pm tonight my mom was pissed off and re-doing my taxes. And this time for whatever reason it says I get a $91 refund! Yay!!! So, who knows why (and it still could be a mistake but it doesn't matter I have the money), all I know is I am glad I get to put $400 in the bank and I don't have to rush down to Baltimore to the Main post office.

Finished my 4th book in the past 2 weeks. Reading has become one of my most favorite things to do right now. It's so relaxing and entertaining. And a huge HUGE stress reliever.

Applying to BJ's. I want to see what my options are. Especially since Giant has been screwing up the Pharmacy schedules left and right. And we have no Pharmacy Manager. I need to make sure I am not in the wrong place.

Now I have the night off and I am watching the Apprentice finale. This show is probably the best reality show on right now. And it makes me want to get my MBA and start my own company. :) If any I will definitely being completing the first part of that goal.

That's all for now.
