[music |Twista - Girl Tonight]

YAY!! I got my new computer. It's soo awesome and big! John and I spent Saturday night drinking and watching movies and doing other things ; ). It was a grand jolly ole' time. Green Apple Twists by Smirnoff of the best...well only second to Corona w/lime.

I have been soo friggin' lazy concerning my school work. Turning things in at the last minute is not going to help me when finals come around. I still haven't bought a single txt book for any of my classes. I'm gonna have to do that this week sometime and get crackin' eh?

My car is acting up yet again. I think it may be my breaks. The people that usually work on my car want somthing like $800 bucks to fix it. There has got to be a cheaper option. If there is one, I'll find it.

Work is going pretty well. I tend to get very frustrated somtimes. I also tend to get paranoid about things because its a completely different enviroment than what I'm used to working in. So far so good though. I'm still doing job searches though. I'm hoping to get somthing in my field once I finish my degree in December.

I'm slowly but surely paying off my bills. I should be good by the end of december...with most of them at least.

Once again, I have started a new job. One I actually wanted. I’ve been working in Columbia for 3 whole weeks now. My job is paying me a lot of money, so much that I can afford to move out on my own into a nice place with my baby.

Me, John, Alex, D.J. Joanne, Janet, Thu, and her husband all met up at Chevy’s last night for some drinks and food. I had the best time! I hadn’t seen all of them together in months. We spent a good ½ taking pics both in the restaurant and outside. Thu and I found out we have a class together on Sundays so that is gonna be awesome!

Alex, John, and Me all went back to Joanne’s place after Chevy’s to continue drinking. We stopped and brought more booze before we headed to Silver Spring and John got me Green Apple Smirnoff Ice. Soo Good!! Sooo Gooooood!!!

Ok, in the past month, I have started not one, but 3 new jobs. First was the lawyers office. I hated this place and was totally underpaid for all the work they gave me. Second was Staples. This job was not that bad actually. At least it wasn't until I told them I was leaving because I got a job with a middle school. At that point, one person in particular started giving me a hard time. This was due to the fact that I was supposed to replace him in a few months. I felt kinda bad for him, ecspecially after he started whining about how he didn't want to be there on my last day. But the school pays more money and I believe that I will like it alot better.

I'm not feeling too good today. I started getting sick last night. John stayed up with me to take care of me ;). He even cancelled his plans tonight to stay in with me. How sweet is that?? I'm feeling a bit better already though. I need some soup and grilled cheese.

On Wednesday, I got a call offering me a job at the law firm I had interviewed for and got turned down bc they were concerned about my graduation in December and me leaving the company. Deciding that this was one of the best offers to come my way, I accepted it and started that Thursday. My first day was very trying bc all I did was train. Today I was pretty much on my own. I had almost no idea about what I was doing but I'm catching on pretty quickly.

My supervisor from the computer lab really gave me some crappy hours for the fall semester. She was going to have me drive an hour up there to work for 4 hours during the week then she wanted me to work all day Sat. and Sunday. No fucking way!! I ended up quitting bc I got tired of the whole work study fiasco and decided I needed somthing more stable not to mention benefits so I quit when I got the new job. Although it was time for me to leave, I'm really going to miss working there. Some of the students and my co-workers were totally awesome.

My baby got a job too on Thursday. He didn't think he was going to get it bc they took soo long to call him back but they did and he's ecstatic. I'm ecstatic. I'm soo proud of us.

Everyone is getting new jobs and its a wonderful thing. Although I kinda like my new job, that doesn't mean I'm not going to keep applying for other jobs. It would be crazy of me not to. I'm just soo darn tired now. Working soo much does that to you I suppose.

Courtney called me a few days ago after not calling for a month to let me know that she is 2 1/2 months preggers!! I don't know what to think. I'm happy for her but at the same time very worried. Whenever I bring baby talk up, she gets mad and doesn't want to talk about it. Not bringing it up anymore may be a good thing.

While taking one of our late night trips to Wal-Mart, John and I ran into a girl I used to go to high school with. We weren't exactly friends but we did speake quite a bit. She kept asking about my life and how I was doing. When I told her I was about to finish college, she jumped on me about whether or not I had gotten any job offers yet. Now, I'm not sure if she was asking because she thought I hadn't and wanted to gloat or if she just wanted to know. After telling her that I had indeed gotten job offers that were either too far away or didn't offer as much money as I thought I was worth, she shut up.Hehehehe.

John cooked us cheese fries and picked up some chicken for dinner tonight. All I can say is YUMMY!!! I love him sooo much! Not just because he cooks for me but because he really is an awesome boyfriend. The fact that he cooks for me is just a fringe benefit ;)

I plan on having lunch with Shauny tomorrow so we'll have time to catch up on what's going on in our lives.

The lady I interviewed with a few days hasn't called me back yet. She had called alot of my references thought. I'm gonna give her a call monday if I don't hear from her by 2. It'd be nice if I did in fact get it. Its soo close to home and they offer really nice benefits. Although the pay may not be as much as I want, it'll suffice until I finish school in December, then as soon as I land a new job with my new degree, I'm sooo outta there!!

We're about to watch I,Robot on In Demand and hopefully make more cheese fries. I hope this movie doesn't suck.

Yesterday, I got out the emery board, nail polish remover, and nail clippers and gave myself a pedi and mani. Lord knows I needed it. My feet were looking really dry and had polish on that was at least 3 weeks old. Not a good look. All is well now.

The breaks on my car are going bad so now I've got to get them replaced tomorrow morning. *bleh*

I ended up meeting John at Matt and Jamie's on Saturday night for an early 4th of July BBQ and fireworks display. After 2 shots and 2 beer bongs it was off to the hot tub after a 15 minute discussin with Paul about his loss of faith in the Catholic religion. The tub wasn't as warm as I would have liked but at least I had on a bathing suit I really liked. Jamie had tons of them stored away for guests. I ended up getting this really awesome orange and red bikini. Thankfully, she also had shorts that fit me bc I was not trying to show everyone my ass.

After some interesting convo, Jamie decided it would be a good idea for all of us to jump into their in ground pool. I was all up for it until I felt how cold the water was. So there I was testing the temp with my foot, when someone throws me in from behind...into the deep end. Might have been quite funny if I knew how to swim. As I was sinking into the 7ft of water, I became quite pissed. I wasn't planning on getting my hair wet. John came out just as I was coming up. When he found out what had happened, he got pretty pissed at Paul. Paul ended up apologizing and all was well again.

Things between me and someone else seems like they've been strained over the past week. Random arguments seem to be happening a lot more frequently than before. I'm very confused over some of the stuff that's been going down. Six months ago, I would have been extremely stressed over somthing like this but now I find myself just rolling with it. I'm not sure how things are going to turn out. Some things that I found completely normal to be doing are going to have to change.

Job prospects are not looking good right now. Nothing decent is coming my way. Its all bullshit!!! Some of my other friend don't even have college degrees and are working pretty decent jobs, while I slave away with 9 credits left until I am a college graduate and can't even land a decent position. It makes me soooo fucking MADDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDd!!!!!!

Don't get me wrong. I'm completly happy for my friends that were able to land jobs with just a high school diploma. Makes me think that college is just a bunch of bullshit.

I'm just frustrated with a job search that is going nowhere. I'm frustrated with some aspects of the way my life is going. I was even contemplating joining the navy just for a change. Drastic. I know. I don't think I was serious about it. I know that eventually, I will find a job and it will be awesome. I will be able to pay off all of my debt and get my own place.

Patience is a virtue and I am very virtuous. At least I'm trying to be.

On a different note, the following picture amused me to no end this evening...enjoy!!
