My last post was sometime last May, and although my life doesn't feel like it has changed much, it's slightly different.
I'm working full time at my retail management job, still trying to figuring out goal for work, and where God is leading me. School is over, but living with two people that are still in college, along with all the close friends, still in college, and living in a University town...well...college is over I suppose, but it doesn't feel much like it.
My sister is having her baby in like a week and a half....I'm super super excited.
I'm really not sure what to post, and I believe it's because I have a lot to say, but choose not to voice my thoughts via the internet. I don't wanna be that person who complains and just talks about everything going on in their life, to everyone. You should never clean your dirty laundry in public...I think that was in a movie. Oh well, if you really wanna talk to me, i'm sure I will talk to you...
my life...is my life.
oh yeah the title of this post is a quote from "Pretty in Pink", and amazing movie that I watched tonight! :-)

Today is may 22, 2006. On may 13th, I graduated from the college of business and economics. I'm officially done college, unless later in life I decide to return for graduate school. In June, I will be starting my managerial position with Steve & Barry's University Sportswear. This is exciting and makes me slightly nervous. I have to go New York for training on the 4th, so I will then be out of town for a week and a half. Other than that, my life right now is working and eating and sleeping.
so that's the brief update, I don't have much else to say.
oh yeah, i also miss some people.

Well actually over the last two months I've been searching and searching for a job, since graduation is like 7 weeks away. wow that's scary. I've been searching for a job and trying to finish up my classes, along with going to my part-time job. My classes completely and utterly bore me, and I'm not even kidding on that one. the job hunt is oh so tiring, and not so successful either. on a happy note, my sister is pregnant, so every time I go home I get to listen to convos about that and such, it's quite fun. plus she's moving back home, my parents gave her some land. it's nice to see her and her husband's house being set up on the land and such. I'm feeling old!
on the newest of news...I got a bike!!
I hope to have more to say later...

"Who did you love before me...No-one!...and after...No-one!"
Sorry people, I had to put a quote from the most recent movie I've seen in theaters...Tristan & Isolde. Which I would have to say, was awesome. I loved it...it was super great, super romantic, super battle-like. It just had so much to satisfy so many moviegoers. But I only ramble.
So I hope everyone is doing well. I'm doing alright. I've had a lot on my mind lately. Let me just tell ya some about it!
Right now, I'm currently enjoying the listening pleasures (and somewhat viewing pleasures) of Comedy Central's Stand-Up Comedy Showdown...simply entertaining. I just wish I wouldn't have missed Dane Cook, he is my favorite. I'm also thinking and conjuring up thoughts on various other subjects. Lately the subject of solitude and loneliness has been on my mind. With the concluding idea that I am lonely, and I know it. But...I am able to overcome and deal with it. I know that things will change inevitably, but while they are the same as now...I will live.
Another thought lingering through my infinite brainwaves is one recently put in by my roomie. Camping!! I want to go camping, I want to hang out with my closest friends and just have some quality bonding time and create amazing memories and just absolutely bask in the glory of friendship. I love it! Plus with the whole ideas of graduation and "life" peering it's head around the corner, I'm compelled to do memorable things in life. I want to do something spontaneously planned?!
CRU last week discussed the idea of solitude and silence. This concept is just incredible. The idea of growing closer to God through solitude and silence, the idea of pouring ourselves before the Father in Heaven, the idea of turning off our computers, our cell phones, our ipods, the idea that should be a reality. The idea of...focus, the idea of...complete reverence, the idea of...pure community, where everything fades away except for the communion with the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. How can I fear silence? I feel that if I fear silence and solitude, I fear..my Father, my Savior, my Guiding Light.
"Nothing is so insufferable to man as to be completely at rest, without
passions, without business, without diversion, without study. He then feels his nothingness, his forlornness, his insufficiency, his dependence, his weakness, his emptiness. There will immediately arise from the depth of his heart weariness, gloom, sadness, fretfulness, vexation, despair."--Blaise Pascal

So what's happened in the last month. I'll give you the brief synopsis.
So...after finals in the beginning of December, I got my grades for the semester, good good. No major problems there. Then I worked some before Christmas came. When Christmas finally got here, I was able to spend time with the family, which was excellent, as always. I got a new Casio keyboard for Christmas and I have been teaching myself the read music and play ever since then...I'm actually getting the hang of it...surprisingly to some. After Christmas came and went, I came back out to Mo-town and left for the 2006 Nokia Sugar Bowl with the Pride, where WVU managed to beat Georgia 38-35. Amazing and sweet victory, I might add. After spending New Year's in Georgia, which is a story in itself, and the game there, we came back home. I proceeded to work for the remainder of my semester break, and now am currently entering the second week of the Spring 2006 semester of classes.
So the update of the here and now...I'm taking 12 credits, which includes Dance 101, Social Work 147, and Advertising 215, along with my Independent Study. I'm still working consistently, and awaiting a response from Target on the internship (your prayers would be much appreciated). I'm also having some anxiety over a the job search...b/c I'm realizing more and more that I graduate in May!!! So..pray for me...please!
and hey...have a good one.
