Hello All! It's been a while since I've given you any updates. I've been laying pretty low in my hometown in Kentucky, but it seems that very soon I'll be rejoining the land of the living and lively. So I must fill in a few gaps!
For the three weeks or so of being home I applied for lots and lots of summer jobs. Things weren't looking so well, and looked even worse when I watched the employer's faces fall when the found out I would be leaving in just three months after being hired, and the job search never yielded results. I did, however, get so frustrated with not having a cash flow and not having anything to do that I decided to start up a shop on Etsy.com. So now I have projects and (hopefully) more savings by the end of summer! The shop isn't up yet, but it's in the works!
I've also been taking lots of little trips here and there. A few weeks ago mom, Sadie, and I drove up to Columbus, Ohio for a family reunion and a Zoo trip.We went on to Pittsburgh to visit friends and do a little shopping. I've been frequenting Tennessee a lot, too, where my boyfriend Chris lives.
But my latest and most adorable adventure started earlier this week while I was volunteering at the local animal shelter. A lady dropped off this tiny little critter, and because of her young age and need for frequent care, she was going to be put down immediately. But I saved her!! She's been growing so much and she cries less and less, and she sleeps on my tummy like a perfect little angel cat. Her name is Bing Bing Fing, after an exchange student we knew.
And I love Bing Bing Fing, even though petting her makes my eyes swell until I can't open them anymore. Yeah- I'm allergic to cats. That's probably the worst curse the gods could send a girl.
Oh, and last but not least! I began my online math course through Stephens last week- Personal and Family Finance. It's tough to do an online course in the summer! I've been slipped back into vacation mode so thoroughly that it's so difficult to motivate myself sometimes. I'm getting back in the swing of things, though!
I hope all of you are having a great summer, either working, playing or still trying to catch up on sleep like I am. See you all soon! We're at about two months and counting until school starts again!
