I’ve been trying all day to decide what my first real post should be about…It was on my mind while I was trying work, while I was doing homework (also while working), and during the drive home. Since I couldn’t come up with anything I was really happy with I’ve decided to do an “about me” post. Original, I know…
So…Where to begin?
I have lived in the same small town (sometimes lovingly referred to as the armpit of Indiana) for 25 of the 28 years I’ve been alive. After high school I went to college for a year and joined a sorority (KΔΓ). During summer break I got a letter politely asking me not to return the next year due to my academic performance. I guess my major, alcohol awareness, was not technically recognized by the school and I had worked so hard (Beer Olympics, anyone?) for nothing. A few years later I moved to Corpus Christi, Texas and learned some incredibly valuable life lessons…Well, mainly just one and I’ll share that at a later date.
I’ve been back in the Hoosier state for a little over a year now…I love being so close to my family and friends but I really miss the weather in south Texas! I hate snow…Sure, it’s pretty to look at from the comfort of your house but when it doubles your normally hour long commute to work? Uh, no thanks.
I’ve held a number of jobs… I could sell you jewelery, a cell phone, a car, glasses or contacts, insurance, beer, or a college education! I’m currently working in admissions/recruitment for a college that will remain nameless… It just so happens to be the one I’m attending. Woohoo, 80% off of tuition! This time around I am actually applying myself and believe it or not I currently have a 4.0. My mom is so proud that I think she’s going to make me print my grades so she can hang them on the fridge.
I’m single…I have mixed feelings about that. On one hand, all of my friends are married and cranking out babies (enjoy that mental picture) and I’m a smidge jealous. I’ve noticed that lately whenever I see a cute baby (because let’s be honest…they’re not ALL cute) I get a distinct pain where I imagine my ovaries are. I’m pretty sure that’s them shriveling up from lack of use. Being single has perks, though. I do whatever I want whenever I want and I love that. I don’t have to share anything I own, I always get the best spot and all of the covers in bed, and if I want to go out to watch football and drink beer with the guys I don’t have to listen to any nagging.
So…There it is. Obviously there is a lot more to what makes me such a fascinating person but I like to leave ’em wanting more. I’m off to dreamland…The alarm will be going off before I know it and this time I hope to hear it before it’s been going off for an hour and a half. You know, it’s never fun to start your day off yelling curse words.
