Hello everyone!! (Is there anyone that checks this anymore?)
Just a quick update...I'm back in school, hoping to graduate this Spring, or at the latest Summer, semester. I'm dating a wonderful man who I love very much. I'm also loving living with my twin and her family down in Provo. Sad that I don't get to see my friends up in Salt Lake as much, but I love seeing my nephew and niece every day.
That's me in a nutshell. Just trying to stay afloat at school and not drown in homework. All-in-all, I'm good.
It's been over a year since I posted on here, and as Pat reminded me, I should probably start posting again. So, New Year's Resolution: To be better at posting. I figure since I'm back at school that I don't see all of you that much anymore, so I'll try to update better. That way, if you care, you can keep up on my life.
I'm not going to sum up a whole year, though, so you'll just have to be ok with me starting from today on. If you have any questions, you'll just have to ask. :)
So, I'm back at school and I made it through my first semester. Barley. The week before finals and finals week were probably the most stressful weeks of my entire life. I've NEVER been that stressed out before. Anyway, I'm ready for next semester and hopefully it will be a good one. I don't really want it to start, but what ya gonna do? I'm just glad I have a good place to live and that I can spend time with my family down in Provo.
Since school started, I have been a social butterfly, which is crazy, 'cause I wasn't one until then. I come home to Murray every weekend, and then I spend Friday and Saturday playing with friends. The only time my family gets me is Sunday, which is sad, but I'm working on that. I spend a lot of time at Sean and Brandi's house just hanging out which I enjoy immensely. Hurray for such fantastic friends as those two. Stewart also comes in on occasion, and sometimes, I get to hang out with my best friend, Sarah.
Anyway, that's my life in a nutshell. I'll try to remember to post more often.
For those of you who don't know yet, last Saturday, I had a little accident at work. I was helping clean a theatre and a tray accidentally made forceful contact with my face. Enough to break both my glasses and my nose. I'm doing ok, but I am in some pain. We're also trying to get workman's comp to cover my glasses, since as of right now, I'm wearing my old pair that are 3 prescriptions old and so can't really see or drive. Somewhat inconvenient, wouldn't you say? I'm getting through it, though, and that's saying something anyway.
Ok, Pat, here you go! I'm finally updating. Really, there's so much to say that I honestly don't know where to start.
I guess I'll start with work. It's been crazy at work this year. It started in May and continued until..well...yesterday, actually. From now on it's going to be slow until Thanksgiving. On May 2, Iron Man came out and that was a crazy weekend. That movie was going strong in the theatre until The Dark Knight came out on July 18. Boy was that movie insane. We had 16 of our 17 theatres showing The Dark Knight (the 17th was showing Mama Mia!), and all of those theatres was sold out. All of this on a seriously short staff. Luckily, we have amazing people in the Usher department, and it all went in so smoothly, we were amazed. Even our Theatre Manager commented on how well it went, which is amazing in and of itself.
Aside from the movies this summer, we had people leaving us that we wish hadn't. Seth, for instance, got a new job and tried to stay on part time. Unfortunately, they cut his pay and demoted him to team lead and so, he wasn't exactly happy right from the beginning. His last day was July 4th. I miss him terribly. Also, one of our 16 year old ushers found out that she has Leukemia and we lost her rather quickly. She's doing fine, but she can't work right now. We all can't wait until we get her back. My favorite person at work is having health problems and couldn't work as well. Our ushers were dropping like flies. Now we have some new people and some transfers from other departments and we're doing ok, but we miss those people we've lost.
Sarah, Emily, and I went to Disneyland at the end of April. That was FUN, and I think I'll be forever craving the waffles at the Carnation Cafe inside Disneyland. Good stuff. Excellent stuff, actually. I highly recommend it. We had a blast and that let us know that we get along well enough to go on more vacations together. That being said, we went to the Shakespearean Festival. My parents came too, and it was amazing. My favorite by far was Cyrano De Bergerac. Brian Vaughn was absolutely amazing in the title role. I loved it so much that last Wed, we dragged Laura down for a day trip. Emily, Sarah, Laura, and I had a great time. I enjoyed the ride home so much that even though I was tired, I didn't want it to end. It was awesome.
So, for Halloween this year, I'm going to be Rose Tyler from Doctor Who. I'm almost done assembling the costume. I'm doing her outfit from "Turn Left", "Stolen Earth", and "Journey's End". All I need to find is a blue leather jacket and I'm done! No one will know who I am, but I don't care. I'm just excited. I'll be great.
Not much else is going on. I'm not in school right now, but I plan on taking a few Independent Study classes so I can graduate. I'll be going back to UVU next spring to take the classes I need to there.
Well, there's an update. I'll try to be better at posting, but I'm not promising anything. I'll do my best however. There you go, Pat!
So, since my last post, I've made some life-altering decisions. So, here they are:
I withdrew from school. It was just too hard to cope this semester. With Full-time work, I just wasn't able to get everything done for school. I was facing midterms and I realized that I had no idea what was on the test and that it would take a week to get caught up. So, I'm out of school. I'm so happy! I actually have time to do things again. It makes me so happy.
I've also changed my major. I'm no longer a Deaf Studies Major. I'm an English Major with a Deaf Studies Minor. It would have taken me 12 years to get the Deaf Studies major, and so I'm going with the English major so that I can get through school in good time. I'm very sad about having to give up my Deaf Studies major because I've been waiting for it for 5 or so years, and I'm sad that I'm not going to be able to get it.
I also broke up with my boyfriend. It was incredibly hard to do, and I hope that I'll never have to do it again.
But, now I have a life and I'm enjoying the freedom. Although, I did work for 7 days straight, and so now I'm exhausted. My body still hasn't adjusted to daylight savings time, so I'm not getting to bed in good time and I have to get up early. With that and work, I'm very tired.
Anyway, there's your update on my life for now.
Ok. so it's been an extremely long time since I've posted, and I apologize. Life has been so crazy lately that I've hardly had time to breathe let alone do anything else.
I'm now a full-time Team Lead at work (Yay for getting Team Lead!) and part-time at school. It's been crazy, but I enjoy my job and my classes are good. They take up a lot of time, though and I'm super behind on homework. It does worry me because I have midterms coming up, and I don't feel prepared at all.
On top of all that I'm dating a guy named Stewart. No he's not the guy from the last post. That ship has sailed. Stewart is a good guy, but he wants to spend more time with me than I can give him right now. It's frustrating him, but I think he'll live.
I've officially become a knitter! Yay! I got a knitting bag for Christmas and now I bought my own knitting needles from KnitPicks. I'm extremely excited about it all. I love knitting and I'm glad that I'm getting better at it. I just finished a cabled scarf and I'm starting on my first felted bag that we're making for our Disneyland trip.
That's right, Disneyland! Sarah, Em and I are going as soon as my finals are over. I'm so, so excited! I need the change of scene so bad! Hurray for getting away for a week!
Well I need to go clean my room and get a few more things done. Then I'm going down to Laura's to spend the night. I'm so happy!
It's been a while and I have a little bit of time, so I thought I'd write.
I have now been to see Hairspray 6 times. Seriously, if you haven't seen it, go and see it. It's an amazing show and I totally recommend it.
So, I like a guy. I won't give huge amounts of details, in case he stumbles across this, but I really like him. He's tall, and he has dark hair, and he's very cute. I don't know if he likes me or not, but I'm hopeful. I'm trying hard to be patient, but it's hard when we flirt like mad.
Anyway, school started, and I like my classes so far. I have Doctrine and Covenants, Deaf Culture Studies, Critical Literature, and Fantasy. I like all my teachers, and I think it'll be a good semester. Well, here's hoping anyway.
There is a new Team Lead position open at work. My interview is on Friday at 4. I really, really want it this time. I've never wanted it more. I think I have a really good chance this time, and so I'm not too worried.
Football season has started again! YAY!! I LOVE football. Especially BYU football. Seriously, I become a wild person at games. It's fun. I've waited all summer for the football season, and I'm so glad it's finally here!
There's a lot more to say, but I don't want to go into details. You see, it's about the guy I like and if he stumbles across this, it'd be embarrassing. If you want to know the details, email me and I'll be happy to fill you in.
