Work, School, And Life Oh My!

Job News:

Well, I spent all of my spring break working but it was way worth it. I’m enjoying just about every aspect of my new job. We are constantly busy running around trying to get the store set up. I must say that I had no idea how much work goes into retail jobs. Having never worked with any of the product we sell, I’m learning lots of new things daily. The best part of my new job is definitely my coworkers. I have made a lot of new friends which is nice. Since everyone is new and in the learning process we are all equals which is super. Next week I get to do some training in the Santa Maria location so I’m pretty excited. =) Also, I got a second job today working for an up and coming production company in the Bay Area. For now I will be doing all of my work through phone, email, and snail mail corespondence. When I move back up north I have a guarenteed office job waiting for me YAY! The best part of the job is being able to help out a friend. My friend chris owns the company and being able to work closely with a great friend will be really fun.

School News:
I can't lie... All of the assignments I planned on doing over spring break never got started. I'm really kicking myself now because I'm going to have to do all of my work in the next week. I have been having a hard time adjusting to my crazy new hours. Tomorrow I have to run a few errands and then I have the whole day to get some stuff done.

Food News:
I have made several delicious dishes in the last week but due to the fact that I’m now a space cadet I have forgotten to take pictures. I made Black bean Enchiladas, Chicken and Spinach Lasagna, Irish Carbomb Cupcakes, and Cookie Dough Cupcakes. Every recipe was a hit so I’ll be making them all again soon and I’ll make sure to take pictures and post them.

Last Saturday was Nick's bachelor party and it was so much fun. Things were really relaxed and we all had a great time. It was a great send off for Nick the single guy. In two days he will be a married man and I'm so happy for him. The wedding is hawaiian theamed with an open bar so needless to say, fun will be had by all. I picked up my bridesmaid dress from my alterations lady this afternoon and it looks great. I'll be taking Kinsey to her pet resort in the morning and as soon as Dan gets home from work we are getting in the car and heading up north. We will be making a pit stop at the Sonic in Gilroy for drinks!!! I'll be spending the night with the ladies in a nice hotel with plenty to drink. Due to the fact that I have to be at work really early on Monday, we will be driving home right after the wedding. But the following week I'll be relaxing on a cruise so I think I can deal with a crazy schedule for a little bit longer.

Have A Happy Night

Crazy Crazy April...

Job News:

I had my first productive day of work yesterday and I had a lot of fun. Everyone that I worked with was super nice and none of them seemed as though they were lacking in the brains department. I’m super excited to go back tomorrow even though I have to get up super early. It has been really nice that my first week of work and spring break coincide with each other. Next week is going to be a tough week though. It has been forever since I have had to juggle a job and a full load at school. I’ll figure it out though.

Month Of Hell News:
Well, April is here now and that means I’m going to be a little a lot crazy for the next 30 days. Here is the lineup so far:

  •  Work- all month

  • School- all month

  • Gym- all month but I don’t know how I’m going to find the time and energy for this

  • Crazy Baking- this Friday after work

  • Bachelor Party- Saturday

  • Easter with Parents- Sunday

  • N&L Wedding Prep- Monday through Thursday

  • Drive Up For Wedding- Friday

  • N&L Wedding-04/10 YAY!!!

  • School- taking exams early and turning papers in early

  • Packing for the cruise

  • Work- Grand Opening YAY!!!

  • Cruise

  • School- prep for finals
I’m so excited about all of these things but I wish they weren’t all crammed into one month. Maybe I’ll lose some weight from all the running around ;)

School News:
Currently I’m pulling my hair out over this semester but the time has come to start thinking about summer classes. I was finally able to check out the summer schedule and I’m pretty stoked about the class offerings. I’ll be taking Crisis Management, English 101 (I can’t figure out how I managed to forget to take this earlier), and Hollywood and the American Film. These three classes bring me to a total of 10 units for summer. I wish I could take the summer off but I have to take the classes before I can start my internship in fall. I tried to make things a little easier by taking two online classes and only one on campus. I was even smart enough to look at the required reading for all of the English 101 instructors and I selected the class with reading material that I will enjoy. Summer should be fairly painless, and if its not at least its only six weeks of torture.

I'm going to kick April's butt!
Have A Happy Night
