Weather, Work, and Weariness

We've had some truly beautiful weather here the last couple of days.  Not that I've been able to enjoy it thanks to work but I hope it's a sign of what is to come over the next couple of weeks.  I'm dying to get the hard top off of my car and I said as soon as the weather hit 60 degrees I would do it.  Hope that comes soon.

Have I ever mentioned that I hate my job?  I've always envied people that enjoy their work.  Medical billing was a door that was opened for me a long time ago when I desperately needed employment and I am thankful for the living it has provided me this far, but I'll be damned if it isn't the most boring thing in the world to do as a job.  I thought when I got into management it would be better but management is just tedious and lonely.

I figured out my schedule for next semester and it's a killer one.  I'll be taking 17 hours comprised of an upper level French and Spanish, advanced chemistry, advanced biology, labs for both sciences and precalculus (which is kind of a step back since I started college with calculus credit, but it's also been 7 years since I've taken a math class so I can't exactly step into calculus 2).  So basically, sometime around late October I'm gonna need everyone to start praying for me.

Last but certainly not least I caught wind that Fox's Glee will be holding an open audition to fill spots for 3 new characters on the show and I will definitely be auditioning.  I love the show, love the characters and think it would be awesome to be on it.  They haven't announced the dates for the auditions yet, but I will certainly let everyone know when I find out.

Happy Valentines Day

Just wanted to say Happy Valentines Day to everyone!  Heather, Mawmaw, Ryan I love you guys immensely.  I've never been a big fan of valetine's day.  I'm not exatcly sure why because I have good memories of days past. Hell, I got engaged on Valentine's Day (that one was definitely the best one yet).  Today's been a good day though, first valentine's married.  It amazes me because I realized today that I have been married for almost 11 months.  Wow.  Anyway, I don't have a lot more to share today.  I know I promised a post about Megan when I first started this whole thing...It's coming, I just don't want to write it with her right next to me.

Love to all.

Why do I keep doing this to myself? I just realized that I forgot to do my online french workbook that was due Friday at 11:59. On top of that I'm still not ready for my oral exam Monday. I've done the math and I have to get an A in every class I take just to have a chance at making it into Emory...

I don't understand what causes me to procrastinate but whatever it is I need to get rid of it. 7 days a week...7 days a week is what I should be working. Between school and work I need to work EVERY DAY!!!!

Sorry for the yelling, I'm just incredibly dissapointed in myself. Bonne nuit et a demain...good night and see you tomorrow.

My Brothers

I was looking over my 2 older posts and realized I need to clear something up...

Ryan and Cody are truly my brothers and I love both of them dearly.  Like any sibling relationship there are ups and downs.  I just wanted to say that Cody and I have mended our relationship after a brief rocky period and I am thrilled that Cody and Marquee are getting married.  I plan on not only being there but also helping make sure the day is wonderful for both of them.  Also, just so Cody knows, Ryan and I are gonna throw him one helluva bachelor party.

Winter in Georgia

Snow. We actually got a like 1.5" of snow. Thank god for it to, because my Saturday morning religions class was cancelled and the teacher, overjoyed by the Saints victory and thrilled that he would not have to wake up early on Saturday gave us a one week extension on our Buddhism research papers.

Kinda bored right now, which is bad because the boredom has led me to play Farmville on Facebook (yes Ryan, I did kinda enjoy it) and research residency programs. I try not to think too much about my future, at least not beyond the classes I'm taking right now, because every time I do I realize the daunting task ahead of me. Somehow I have to raise my GPA from a 2.88 to a 3.7 and also live enough of a life outside of that to impress the admissions committee at Emory. Then IF I get in, I have to maintain fantastic grades because both specialties I am considering have extremely competitive residency programs.

Whatever. Everyone keeps asking me how married life is...I don't understand this. Does anyone actually think I'm gonna say "It's terrible"?

It's not. It's wonderful.

School on the other hand is not. Word to the wise...never study two different languages at the same time. Also, if you're going to study a foreign language just study Spanish. It is SO much easier than French and is infinitely more useful.

I've just learned (in the last 10 minutes) that the term "long-distance speed-skating" is an oxymoron. Screw you Olympic coverage for trying to get me excited in this crappy event.

That's it for now.
