This is a fun one…

Although I hate surveys and all things like them I decided to do this because I’m rather bored but not really all that tired tonight.

I also cooked a fabulous (not to toot my own horn or anything but its a long time since I’ve done something creative like make up a recipe) dinner for my mom and me. Step by step instructions and my recipe coming soon!

I can’t…
bring myself to watch the mess that is John and Kate+8. coordinate clothes and jewelry (I always have one thing out of place). wear the maxi dress I bought a couple weeks ago, stupid dress anxiety. do math in my head. do math. teach my phone to spell cusswords on T9 mode. stop watching wedding planning and wedding cake shows.

I can..
type really fast. apparently live in a messy hovel of a room that I have yet to finish organizing. cook a fabulous dinner (toot toot). text and drive, even though I shouldn’t. come up with things to make but rarely make them. go ape over decorating books. be extremely organized and a mess at the same time.

I won’t…
be friends with people who use me anymore. let the dog out the front door when he should go out the back door with the other dogs. eat at Arby’s (I just hate it for some reason). listen to r&b. pay more than $10.00 for a haircut. use text slang. get a smart phone until I have to. read any more women’s magazines.

I will…
continue to make ridiculous faces at anything and everything when I’m alone. collect stuffed animals. Have a deep, burning desire to go to Sea World even though I’m an adult. have a million pillows on my bed and get irritated with the man when he knocks them off. drive fast on country roads in my car every day. continue to be fascinated with the combination of peppers and onion in food. read too many books.

I shouldn’t…
read so many books, or at least buy so many books. peruse the clearance rack in old navy. wear t-shirts under spaghetti strap tanktops. read “the knot”. say the dirties. be sitting here craving s’mores after all the healthy food I ate today minus the homemade pizza the man and I made for breakfast/lunch. have a burning desire to go to sea world. drive so recklessly in my car. profess my undying love for my car in front of the man. crave so many fatty foods. cut the backyard in to the shape of a penis accidentally and bring my mother to tears laughing about it.

I should…
take a ride on a rocking horse ;-). start planning my effing wedding since I got a job. clean my room. clean my house. stop yelling at the puppy for being obnoxious. go get my haircut tomorrow. repaint my toenails. start looking at graduate schoools. retake the GRE. lose weight. get up earlier. take my sleeping medication (apparently I have super insomnia). curl up with a book in my bed!

wow, that last one sounds like a winner.

I applied for my dream job the other day.

Well, one of my dream jobs. The one that isn’t “Rock Star” or “Professional Holder Down of Furniture”

(and the second one doesn’t even make sense)

I applied to be a Court Designated Worker.
A Court Designated Worker, or CDW is a juvenile intake worker that reviews the cases of every juvenile offender brought in to their county (and the counties that I applied to work for are Clark and Madison counties which are close enough to spit at one of the areas the man and I are interested in relocating to) and after reviewing these cases decides whether or not they are eligible for a “diversion” agreement, which is a contract to do x number of things rather than go to jail. Not all juvenile offenders are eligible for diversions, but it is up to the CDW (along with a judge in some cases) to determine which ones are eligible and facilitate the diversions of those who are eligible.

Doesn’t that sound fun?

This job isn’t something I thought I’d be interested in while I was in college, but since graduating and giving some serious thought to what exactly I want to do with my life this job seems perfect.

I applied for one of my dream jobs…but what am I going to do if i get it?

(which is wild speculation considering I haven’t even gotten an interview yet). However, I have a few cheerleaders in the kentucky court system who have told me they’re making phone calls on my behalf and telling people they should hire me. I really do have some great friends.

If I got this job it would mean I’d have to relocate to either of the counties I plan to serve (or a county that is a hop skip and jump away and would probably be a better place for me to live…anyway) It would also mean the man and I would be separated except on visits until October when his job is done. Possibly he would move down with me, or at least in the same area but honestly we haven’t made it that far. I’d also have to move away from my adopted hometown (big heartbreak there, let me tell you) And I’d move to a place where I barely know anyone.

And I really have never been more excited for the possibility of this. I’m really hoping I get this job so I can embark on a new and exciting phase of life and maybe start “doing real life” like my blog says.

Until next time

Normal Life

I’ve returned from all of my travels (and not a moment too soon I might add) and I’m trying to set up something resembling a normal life here in Nowhere, KY.

Since returning I have:
-Applied for ten jobs.
-Had “date night” with the man (Indian food and driving around).
-Been honored as a graduate at my church, which was nice of them.
-Still not figured out what I want to do with my life.
-Purchased a beautiful mint green night stand at our local junk store/fabulous Target outlet.
-Developed an insane obsession with popsicles
-Organized and cleaned my room (pictures later) because it looks like I might be living here for a while.

It doesn’t seem like a lot, but I feel like I’ve been doing a million things at one time. I guess its part of my life. I’ve discovered I have a hard time being happy if I don’t have things to do….darn obsessive personality.

Well, I have quite a bit to do this afternoon. My room is still not as organized or as clean as I want it to be so I need to get started on that, and I probably could find other things to do if I tried.

Or I could sit in the sun with a drink and enjoy the afternoon.
