More Gaming Advice NeededSo, this is all contingent on my finding full time work, but I want to get myself a nice Christmas present this year. I was thinking some sort of new gaming console (again, my most recent one I own right now is a PS2...) but can't seem to make up my mind if I should go with a PS3/Xbox 360, which I know has a ton of titles, or start fresh with a PS4/Xbox One.
Of course, my other thought is "gee, I'd really like an iPad.
Things are looking up!Well, I dropped my baby brother off at college yesterday. It was a really bittersweet feeling. I'm so excited for him to go through this adventure and have as much fun as I did in college. At the same time, I couldn't help but feel a little bit jealous. I'd relive college over and over again - it really was the best time of my life to date! Today I spoke with my boss about the potential for a full-time offer from them down the road, and she said that it definitely wasn't off the table, which is awesome! And the job I applied for at UC Davis got bumped to the next phase, which means that is still a possibility as well!
For the first time since graduating, it really feels like there might be a place in the workforce for me. I just have to be patient and keep my head up!
I turn old todayToday is my 25th birthday! It's kind of crazy...I feel kind if old.
This morning as I was driving to work, all the kids were running to their bus stops with such excitement, it made me wish I was 5 again. But then I think about all the drama and uncertainty growing up the first time brought out an realized that while I would definitely do things differently if I knew then what I know now, I like how it all turned out. I've graduated law school, sat for the bar exam, have an amazing family and friends.
So, thank you for making these 25 years great ones. And if I've not met you yet, thank you for potentially making the next 25 even better. :)
Game Suggestions NeededSo, when I move into my new place, my boyfriend is leaving one of his Xbox 360s there. I've never had one before - the only console I currently have is a PS2...yea... So, are there any games that I should definitely check out on the 360? I'm not a very skilled gamer yet, but I pick things up pretty quickly, and I want to learn!
I Live!My 2 month absence was far from voluntary. I was studying for the bar exam, a 2-day hell that I can now say is behind me. Of course this means that my sole focus now has to be on getting a job, getting my parents house ready to put a sign in the yard in 2 weeks, and getting my new place ready for me to be able to move in at the same time.
There truly is no rest for the wicked. I think it might be because I'm a ginger...
Not a good dayI got up to go for a run with my sister's dog and she almost yanked my shoulder out of the socket chasing after a squirrel. And broke her new leash. That was before 8am.
Then I got a letter reminding me that my license plates are due, and I have yet to pay personal property taxes for last year, so I have to come up with that money.
And my interview today was a total bust. The ONE place that called me back to schedule an interview is a nice guy with nothing but dreams. He has no clients, nor does he have an idea of whether there is a market for his innovative firm model. He also, apparently, thinks that "full-time" means 5-10 hours a week.
I got lost leaving the interview because the starbucks I was going to chill at until my bar prep class tonight only had metered parking, and I am without change, ended up at a different starbucks, without available wifi, so now I am sitting at my bar prep class early and am so disappointed by the rest of the day that I can't even focus on working on these assignments I have to be working on. I am now 5 days behind pace.
Post-Graduation ChaosSo, I finished packing up my apartment on Friday, loaded up the cars and graduated on Saturday, drove back to St. Louis on Sunday for my cousin's graduation lunch, started my bar preparation class on Monday, and Tuesday realized that there were assignments I should have been working on last week, but didn't know about. So, 2 days into bar prep, I'm approximately 3 days behind my target schedule. I also started training for a 5k on Monday.
And people said Law School was the hard part...
Anyways, I have a job interview at a firm in St. Louis this Friday, so it would be awesome if that worked out. I'm interested to see how I mesh with the atmosphere and partner there. If it works out, it would be nice to put my job search behind me, but I still have a number of applications I am waiting to hear back from. Here's hoping!
I'll be checking in here once in awhile to see how things are going, but with bar prep class 5 or 6 days a week, assignments 7 days a week, and the bar at the end of July, it's going to be a crammed schedule! I'm hoping to take some time to do some fun things along the way, though.
Pain. So much pain.This is day 4 of intense shoulder/neck pain. I'm no medical expert, but I'm not sure there should be a popping sensation deep in my shoulder whenever I roll it? I've tried heat, cold, alternating heat and cold, nothing...it's not really going away. And I have to move out of my apartment this weekend, which requires lifting things...
As if all these life changes were enough to deal with. haha.
Anyways, I finished my last final on Tuesday, so I'm OFFICIALLY done with law school! I also scheduled an interview at a firm for next week, so fingers crossed! It would be amazing to not have to search anymore...
That's all the life updates for now. Back to boxing and wondering how I accumulated so much stuff.
