So, I moved. (And other non-essential updates.)

In no particular order:
  • I moved in with a couple of friends. One of the friends bought the house. (It's brand new and beautiful. Don't worry that there was a grease fire in the kitchen less than 10 days after she closed. It's fine.*)
  • I got a job! I'm working on campus in the testing center. I started in July, and it's a great job--the people are awesome, it keeps me busy, and I get to interact with people ALL day. Awesome. (It pays just under 50% what I was making before, but beggars can't be choosers.)
  • I went to a Real game. It was really fun, and I want to go again, but maybe next time not melt in the sunshine the whole time.
  • I may have two or more crushes happening simultaneously.
  • I am terrified that I have a job and am taking 12 hours of art classes this fall (art classes= heavily project based. Remember the project I did for my 2-D class? Easily 25 hours put into that one...)
  • I am happier than I have been in YEARS.
  • I'm way behind on my goal to be in the best shape of my life during the year of my 30th birthday. Getting on that. Maybe I'll post weekly updates. Ha. Probably not.
  • I sold a bunch of clothes I never wear to Plato's closet the other day so I would have enough money to buy groceries, fill my car with gas, and get my prescriptions filled. Paying almost $400 a month for insurance is going to be painful.
  • I spent an awesome weekend at the lake house with the Knight family. Best weekend of the year. Every year.
  • Also spent a few hours with the Roberts clan chatting, swimming, and munching. I love my families.
  • I came to terms with the fact that I look TERRIBLE in orange.
  • I learned that I look really awesome in coral. Never knew!
  • I went to Whole Foods for the first time ever. I would move just to live in a city with a Whole Foods.
  • I took a sushi-making class that I bought in February. Too much fun. Going to have a sushi party one of these days.
  • I took a much-needed drive up the canyon to cool off and enjoy nature for a bit.
  • I toyed with the idea of moving to Texas. Only briefly.

So many exciting things happening.
Be sure to invite your
Uncle Mike when you have your Sushi Party......he would help you shop for it, love to watch you make it, and help you eat it!

I loved reading your bullet list, catching up on your life a little. Good luck with school in the fall (which, I guess it's almost fall. Yikes!). I would still love to get together some time and make yummy food and eat and talk and laugh...
