A breath of fresh air

Listen here, I had this on repeat all the way home today. Along with Paramore. :p
Sometimes I just need to step outside, get some air, and remind myself who I am and what I want. Sometimes it's an easy process, but most times... I have to thick of a skull for it to sink in.
Sometimes throughout my day I think of a million things I need to blog about so I can remember it.
Sometimes I get writers block and can't think of what to write, or how to convert it from my head to this here keyboard...
I'm pretty frustrated that its raining. I was really looking forward to laying out tomorrow and soaking up some vitamin D. *sigh*
I should also note that this will be a very long blog. Why? Because I have a lot to update about!
Lets see, I started my new job. There's a lot to learn, but needless to say, I love it. I've already seen and learned so much. I feel spoiled. The only hard part that I need to work on is memorizing where everything is. That hospital is gigantic.
Living on my own is bittersweet. I never realize how much I miss home until I'm curled up in my bed and have the comfort of my dad around.
Speaking of my dad, he brought me up to speed that he has two dates next week... wow, that man sure doesn't wait around! He's such a busy body. I may be adopted, but I think I somehow inherited that trait.
Since I haven't had a decent pay check for a good 3 months, I have a lot in mind that I want to blow my first check on. 1. A moderately priced road bike 2. An activity that involves my nieces and nephew 3. Pay bills >:| 4. Shopping spree? 5. Buy some new books 6. Take my friends out to dinner, Spedellis! 7. Buy new scrubs for work, And other various things.
My friend went to Florida today... He invited me, and I'm kicking myself in the butt for not going, but I had zero dollars saved for it, due to moving and stuff like car payments and stupid things like that.

Anyway, here are some pictures of what i've been up to. Enjoy.

 My family (note: my camera died right after this so its not the best picture...)

 Megan's soccer game (second one from the left)

 My littlest niece, Faith

Me, showing some skin (; and pretty mad my picture was being taken

 Okay, this one is OLD. See the nose ring? Haha.

Caught myself a catfish and kept it for a night, then I let it go the next day.

^yeah... i'm wondering the same thing...

10 pounds lighter

Mentally I feel 10 pounds lighter, and I'm sure physically I'm 10 pounds lighter too. I've been so stressed well over a month now. My place of employment closed down-due to financial issues. I moved to Salt Lake-with little to no money to my name. Finals were approaching-and I wasn't ready for them. Zero percent food in my apartment-due to no money. My step mother passed away-that threw me in a frenzy trying to comfort and help my dad. Job searching and job searching-and more searching. Rent for the month was coming up-I only had a fraction of it. But, there is a light at the end of the tunnel! Why? Because I was offered the job that I was practically drooling over. I work at the University Hospital and a little at the Huntsman Hospital as an EKG Technician aka Cardiology Technician. Im shocked and so excited. I had an interview Tuesday and they called me Wednesday... Yes, the next day. When they first called, I missed the phone call. I was freaking out thinking I didn't get the job, so I called my sister to voice my concern. She reassured me that probably just for got to ask me a question. I'm thankful for such a great sister that helps me, I always call her when I have questions, but I digress... I hope I won't disappoint my new employer. The only thing on my plate now is meeting new people in Salt Lake(; I was becoming a little reluctant and second guessing my decision to move, but I'm more than enthralled to be Where I am. I'm ready to start a new chapter to my life!
