Beneath the make-up and behind the smile, I'm just a girl who wishes for the world.

Oh, hello again.

...Update Begin...

It's been quite a while since I've updated this blog. And really, I don't have a very good excuse. My life hasn't been terribly busy like I thought it would be. However, it's about to be. I think... 

My last year of undergrad is going well. My first semester is about over, I've only got the rest of November and the first week of December. Speaking of December, I can't believe it's almost DECEMBER! It's almost Christmas, and I can't believe it. However, I can believe the stupid Christmas Music that is already playing throughout the stores around town. I find this quite ridiculous, even though I do enjoy Christmas Music. It's not even THANKSGIVING yet. That's still another 2 weeks away basically. Once Thanksgiving comes and passes though, best believe this girl will be decorating the CRAP out of her new house.

Which, by the way, I have my own house now! Samuel and I had the great opportunity to get out of the renting business and purchase a place to call our own. It's not the biggest place in the world, but the almost 1300 sqft are definitely nice. It's a quaint 3 bedroom 1 and 1/2 bath home. It was a flipper house, so almost everything was redone. The kitchen is our favorite update. Once we walked into the kitchen we couldn't pass it up. Thankfully our offer was accepted and we moved in! Just in time too. So definitely we have a lot of decorating to do, and I'm so excited for it! 

So, going back to school. Like I said, it's going well and it's almost over. I'm taking 6 classes this semester, and then 5 next. (It's not as much as you think. I'll explain.) The way my first semester is set up, I only have 1 on-campus class and then 5 online classes. Luckily through my school, all online classes last 5 weeks only. Since I am an undergrad student I can only take 2 classes per "session". We don't call them quarters, we call them sessions if that gives you a better idea about it. (AKA 4 "sessions" a semester.) Well I took two classes in the first session, which are over. I'm almost done with my only session two class which is awesome. Then starting towards the end of November I'll start two more classes in the session 3 section. All the while I'm taking these classes I'm taking the constant on-campus class. So, technically the most classes I'm concentrating on at once is 3. Not too shabby.

Since school isn't taking up too much of my time, I am left with work. Well, that's about to take a huge change. In April I had joined the Claire's team here in Fort Wayne at the Glenbrook mall. It's been really great working there. I love everyone I work with and I would do just about anything for them; however, I have just received a job opportunity that I can't refuse. On Tuesday, October 29th I interviewed for a position at Lincoln Financial here in Fort Wayne. That Friday they called me and offered me the position! It's not something people always dream of, working in a Call Center. But I won't be calling people thankfully and trying to sell them items, I'll be receiving the phone calls and trying my best to answer their questions about their accounts. The amount of pay is almost double what I am making at Claire's so that made it that much easier to leave. I'll be working full-time, 40 hours a week, plus possible overtime. Once I start on December 3rd, I have a feeling I'm going to feel how much less time I have than I do now. Looks like I'm going to have to pull some deep power out of myself and push through the work week. I'll definitely enjoy my weekends off though!
