It's been ages. If anyone has been wondering, I do, in fact, still exist. Major focal points of life: school. work. repeat. I finished my second semester of grad school with a 3.66 cumulative GPA. I am officially in my program. I was overjoyed! :) I haven't, however, registered for Fall classes yet. That's on my "really soon to do" to-do list. My mom and step-dad are getting a divorce. This completely sucks for so many reasons. I think it is for the best though. My brother's marriage looks to be pretty solidly over as well. I am doing my best to withhold judgment and opinions on this relationship. My own life? I don't have relationships. The closest thing to mention presently is a situation in which both of us like the other and enjoy spending time together, but each of our lives are so unsettled as to render a relationship unthinkable at the present time. Though I wouldn't have believed it possible, it seems there is at least one man who is more cautious than I am regarding relationships; because of this fact, there is no telling what the future holds/could hold. Work. I love my boss and consider her to be a good friend. I enjoy the other girls I work with. I have recently started a second, part-time job at Coldwater Creek. I really enjoy the time I spend there. The people are lovely and largely speaking, they are very kind. I have put in applications at several other places as well in an attempt to find a full-time job where I am able to have full-time hours because our payroll is very short at my full-time job these past few weeks. Thankfully, I have been offered a job at every retail place I have applied and met the manager. Sadly, no one has been able to offer full-time and benefits at the present time. My hopeful quest continues. :) I am looking forward to seeing my brother and step-mom when they come to DC to visit later this summer. I have missed seeing and talking to them, but I'm too cheap to buy phone cards! I hope to procure a car when I am up in DC visiting as well. Gardening news: (knocking on wood) I have successfully managed to not only keep alive, but to help my begonia and geranium to flourish! To conclude, here's an amusing tid-bit about gardening and my grandmother. My grandma brought me the begonia plant and dropped it off at work one day. When I said thank you she informed me that I wasn't allowed to thank her for the plant. I was, however, permitted to thank her for the pot! Hahaha! For those unfamiliar with the area, "pot" wouldn't bring to mind a terra cotta planter here. Here, people would think of marijuana!!!
