A Little Thanksgiving Addition

Is this what Thanksgiving is?

Turkey + Stuffing + Beer + the Lions = One Long Nap

I think I did good for myself.
Happy Thanksgiving, family! Sorry I'm not with any of you =(

Big News.

Obviously I have big news. These days I just don't blog unless something huge happened (i.e. changing plans to marry).

I heard back from Alcoa today. Here's the nitty gritty:

- I've been offered a minimum of a 3 month internship (which could very possibly lead to more)
- The internship pays $3000/mo. plus $500 for living expenses
- After 3 months I'd have the opportunity to continue on (if I like them) or go somewhere else
- If after 3 months I want to continue I'd be immediately making salary dollars (which hasn't been discussed yet) and start my 18 month training process
- The job is in TORRANCE, CALIFORNIA!!!

That's right. See the ocean? See L.A.?

A Dream Come True.
Needless to say, I'm going to jump on this opportunity. It's in a very high cost of living area so the guy that interviewed me actually wants to skip the internship pay completely and start me out at salary in April. They've already offered the job to me 100% and are now trying to give me more money.

I love growing up.

One More Thing...

Thanks to dad I was reminded I have one more thing to say:

Monday I interviewed with Alcoa (it's an aluminum forging/manufacturing plant) and I was contacted for a second interview.

I was going to leave it as a reply to dad's comment but I think it deserves it's own blog. Don't forget to comment about my last one though! (I really would like to hear where I should spend my $25 at

Thanks y'all!

Here's Another Update

Sorry I'm a slacker, I've been bombarded with a trip to Kentucky, homework and projects for the last few days/weeks.

All of the things on my list were completed within the next hour or two. Second time was a charm I guess.

I still intend on posting a blog about my Girls' Night party.

Kentucky was amazing. I met some good people and good work contacts (which is the point of the whole thing). I'm also more engaged in classroom material now. I'm excited about my major. Part of it might be the networking, part of it might be that I didn't know many of the quizbowl questions. Which brings me to my next high point: my quizbowl team won. I won a coffee mug and $25 to use at

Bad Day

My first two classes were canceled today. You would think I'd be happy. Here's what was on my agenda. (For anyone who doesn't already know, I lost my wallet)

1. Get new license
2. Order new debit card
3. Switch my old phone to Michael's old phone
4. Change my phone number

Here's how successful I was...

1. Got there at 10:00am and they open at 11:00am
2. Success
3. Don't know the last four digits of Traci's ssn
4. Have to have permission from Traci

I'm one for four today and Kevin has already given up and gone back to bed.
Anyone want to drive me around?

Hello November.

I didn't reach my quota for October and I apologize to you all. A few things that were left unresolved:

1. The Halloween thing was supposed to be Princess Zelda and Link
2. Jordan and I broke up

I'm okay.

Thursday I'm going to Kentucky for the Future Safety Leaders of America conference. I'm excited. I bought a new suit for it (only $21!)... I love The Burlington Coat Factory.
