Hey my lovely watchers! I'm so excited to finally post something that might be worth reading (maybe not, you decide!) and let you all know a little about me, my life,
sorry if I whine a bit.
So, I've been slow that's clear to see. A few bumps have come up along the road which have kept me museless and away, unfortunately. Never fear though, my kings and queens, as I'm slowly working on things when I have a spare moment and shred of sanity left (just barely hanging by a thread) and hope to get it out soon.
Currently there is so much happening
in my life! To begin, I finished my first year of college as a Cellular Biology and Neuroscience major (whew that's a mouthful!) with a decent GPA I hope to get up. Scheduling classes has been a bear. I don't know how many of you have had to do that yet, but when you're at the bottom of the foodchain and have to wait for everyone else to do their's first... it's a bit frustrating. They take all the good ones! Thankfully, I got into a yoga class that I wanted to. -- If anyone has any tips, hints, suggestions, or advice for this type of thing I'd love to hear it as this'll be my first time ever doing yoga and I'm p u m p e d !
While classes went swimmingly, the last month took a turn for the worst. My mom - who is the sole provider of my family as my father has MS and cannot work - lost her job. This is, to say the least, very taxing and stressful on all of us. At the immediate moment, I'm the only one in my family working and I have to save every penny and tip for college and my apartment (and all of this is due soon!). With the loss of my mother's job and applications going nation-wide, this obviously means we'll have to move...again.
This can be a very exciting prospect, but in my case I'm scared. I'll give it to you all straight. I'm 19, I can take care of myself, but my family is my rock
. They're looking to move to Alaska and I am so excited for them! It would be a great place to live, for my sister to grow up, and my parents to grow old... But for me, that's a daunting trip. It forces me to move out early into the world, to spread my wings before they're fully feathered and ready for the air. I would get to see my family for Christmas and that's it. Even then, it may only be for a week or so. To those of you who do this all the time, or maybe even don't see your family at all, I'm always here to talk if you get lonely or just want to gab! Like I don't know how you do it?!? This is all so new and frightening and I'm just trying to work on mentally preparing myself for life after this summer?
To add a cherry on top of that bombshell, my boss is a sweet, older lady. Well, the other day she had a bit of an accident and slipped while I wasn't at work yet. Falling on hardwood floors is never pleasant. Being brittle and falling on hardwood floors is a recipe for disaster, and disaster it became. My dear boss ended up fracturing her tibia and went into surgery today. She has been away from work for three days. Where we work, it is a private bed and breakfast. I am the only
other employee aside from her that cleans the house and as such have volunteered to give up my weekends to keep it running. Y I K E S . I don't know the FIRST thing about running a business - thankfully she can still do financials. But we're not sure when she'll be back, let alone how I'll be getting my paycheck this f r i d a y.
That check is what I need for my trip because, on a happier note, for the Fourth of July I'll be visiting my boyfriend! It has been seven weeks since I've seen him. Seven difficult, lonely weeks without hugs or silly faces, but that is what makes it so much more exciting! For three days (3 July - 5 July) I'll get to laugh and reunite with him and (scaryyyyyy omg) meet his mother. I'm a nervous wreck there but have been reassured she won't kill me on sight (woo! score one for TAG!) After this, I'll be applying for an apartment with some friends, and then seven weeks later school will be upon me again.
In between this chaos I call life (can you believe this is almost one of the easier times???) I'll be faithfully at your service in an attempt to appease your art loving palate. If you see an influx of adoptables, auctions, or misc. sales please don't judge too harshly. I only work part time and need to figure out tuition and housing and how to feed my family right now.
So, that sums up the past few weeks for me. I'd love to hear how you guys are, how your days have been and anything you want to share! I encourage you to drop a comment below and we can talk a while.
Have a great time wherever you are and I wish you all the best!
