I think....I.....can....make it.....

One more week until school is out for the summer. Aghhh!! I want to be done NOW! I'm glad to be done with homework, except minor edits on my essay of course, but now I can spend my free time working on my book. WOO HOO!!!!

Anyway, Emily said she thinks her interview went well today, but the person she met with was not very vocal. Hopefully we'll know something by the end of the week. That would be really nice.

With school almost out, I'll be able to go check out the venue for the wedding with Emily and then we can start going over a guest list. We also need to get ring ideas so that we can, well, get rings. Other than that, this is going to be easy....I think.

I don't really want to volunteer anymore, partly because I need to spend time planning the wedding, and because I need to work on my book, but mostly because it's inconvenient. That's not a good enough reason not to though. I'll be calling the hospital tomorrow to see when I should come down to finish my training.

I want to go, but I still have half a french class.

Ok, so that's good

I think we found a photographer for the wedding, we went to a bridal show (yes I went along, and yes I had a good time.....hanging out with my FIANCE) and we got some good names and vendors. I'm excited because school is almost done! HURRAY!!

I bought The Godfather: Black Hand Edition for the Wii, the game rocks, some stuff bothers me, though. I'm not writing a review yet, but when I finish the semester I'll post a review of sorts. I'll also post my final essay after I get my grade. You'll get a look at my style and my opinions at that point, at least regarding violent video games.

Teacher's here, time for french.

Again at the coffee shop. I'm working on school, which is going really well. I have some research to do for my french class and some workbook stuff to finish, and I also have four pages to edit on my final essay....but that's it! Hurray! I may go buy a video game today as a celebration because I know now that I'll be able to finish everything. It's not going to be difficult either.

As for the book, I don't know when I'll have time to sit down and work on it, also why I might not buy a game (still pretty busy). Hmm.....just thought I would give an update as to what I'm doing.

Emily and I are going to a bridal show with out mothers tomorrow. We are also celebrating her birthday with the Sunday Night crew....then I get to take her out on Tuesday, her actual birthday.

Pray for her. She hasn't heard back from the school that she wanted to work for yet, so we just need patience and trust in God. I really want her to get this job because this is the one that she wants. It provides her an opportunity to actually work with kids without the state getting in the way.

I don't want to do anymore homework :P

Fun with my computer

I've been working with Garage Band, it rocks because I can write music now. Awesome.

The book is being delayed a bit until homework is done. I'm at work so I'm just doing a small update. Have fun. More news to come.

These are moving lights that I have been testing as they come back into the shop. One of them had a cracked motor cover. I fixed it :) Not a huge accomplishment because it's simple and easy, but I'm still proud of it because I fixed it.

We didn't go to the potential venue for the wedding on tuesday because I needed to sleep in so that I wouldn't be sick anymore. I feel much better now, but I still have a tickle in my throat that's making me cough.

I'm going to have to start paying my parents rent. No big deal, it's not as much as living on my own, I'll still have over half of my paycheck to save after my bills. Now worries. Ok, teacher just walked in, time for class.

We're down in Colorado Springs this weekend visiting Emily's mom and meeting Emily's church friends and family. That pic is me in the car.

I got all the homework done that I wanted to, but if I have any trouble sleeping I might get some more work done. Either that or I'll work on my book.

Life's going well, I haven't heard back from the venue for the wedding.....we're supposed to take a look at the place so that we can decide if we want to book it, but they haven't called me back. Ok then. Time to go. I need to relax. I'm feeling like I might be getting sick. I don't want to get sick, I hate being sick. My throat hurts and I don't know why. I don't have any other symptoms. Just a soar throat.


I'm getting there

I'm almost done with homework for the weekend.

Work sucked yesterday. I screwed up a couple of orders, not beg mistakes, but they took big fixes. I don't want to get in trouble. It bothers me because this is the only job I've ever had where I'm not one of the best. I know it could come with time, but this isn't something I'm passionate about, so I'm excited about it. I also need time off. I've been working a lot because of school and my job and it's just wearing on me. I won't ask for time off in the first ninety days, though, so I have to wait for a couple more months. Beginning of June :P Whatever.

The book is getting set to the side until I am satisfied with my homework. I may not have the opportunity to really work on it until after the semester is over. That may push back my deadlines. Oh well. That's life, right? I just want to write full time.

Going to a coffee shop to work on my essay and drink chai. Maybe I'll have time to work on my book too.

I got a free movie today....Drunken Master. Awesome movie. I'm bummed, though, because I was going to get Emily a Mumble from Build-A-Bear for her birthday because she loves penguins,
but they're sold out :( Then I was going to get The Godfather for the Wii, but they were sold out at EBGames, and now I think I want to save my money for other things. I really want the game, but I want patio furniture more, and I want a grill, and I want a nice place with the woman I love. I know the game only costs fifty bucks, but it'd be nice to say that that money went toward a home rather than my entertainment.

Besides, I need to spend time writing, not playing video games.

Things this evening didn't turn out as planned, so please pray that I don't get stressed. I know everything is fine and that I have enough time for my homework, I just tend to overreact when I don't get to do my homework when I plan it. Life is good, though.

Emily is Interviewing

She's up in Fort Collins today interviewing for six different school districts. If all goes well she will have a job as a teacher this fall. Hopefully we'll know by the end of the month. That would R0x0rs H4rdc0r3!

I've started work on my book but it's coming slowly. I'm going to start a small writing project as warm-up writing, possibly FC if I can get that in my brain again. Check out Gabe's blog and then get the Daily Dime, links are at the end of his posts.

A Head of Schedule

I just finished the step sheet for the novel, so now I can start writing my book. I'll let you all know about progress. I'm excited! Let's see how long I can stick with this. I still have school, but homework has been easy so far and the semester is almost over. Ok, have fun.


Not a lot to say. I have homework to do today, and then I'm getting together with Emily when she gets done with work. We are going to go to church together tomorrow, and we still have wedding stuff to do. That's making me feel rather useless. I have NO clue what needs to be done to get ready. Ok, that's not true. I know we need rings, I know we need a license, I know that we need a venue booked (if they ever call me back. I'm calling them again on Monday), and I know we need to rent tuxes and buy dresses and flowers and a cake. Oooo yeah, cake :)

I like having enough time to do all of my homeowork because I am currently caught up. This is good because I'll be able to work on my book some more which means I am on schedule. It's going to be difficult with a wedding to plan, though. Everything is going to work out. It's nice when God provides. There is deffinitely going to be enough money for the wedding, and we'll be able to have the wedding that we want to have. We may have to cut somethings back, but we haven't even looked into that very much. Updates will come. I'd create a wedding blog, but that's just too much work. I may have Emily write some stuff for this one about the wedding, or if she posts something on her xanga site I'll link it.

Have a good week. I'll update as things change, or as I feel like.

Wedding stuff

So we probably have our location for the ceremony/reception, but we aren't 100% sure yet. I'll let ya'll know where and when. We don't have a date yet, but it's looking like just around Christmas and New Years. I found out that I don't get any paid vacation time until I've worked here for a year, no big deal, just something that I need to budget around for the honeymoon. Money won't be a big deal because we are having a simple wedding and there is money set aside for the wedding. Emily's mom and dad both have money available. The only reason that the unpaid vacation would make a difference is because that's a week that I wouldn't be getting paid for. Once again, no big deal. I just need to be wise with my money and budget properly.
