I find it funny how much life can suck but be completely wonderful at the same time.

I'm going on day 5 of this migraine, and that isn't fun. I've stopped eating because it doesn't stay with me anyway and it has become a waste of time. My new medication doesn't work very well, but I'm getting over it.

Other than that, life is good. Great actually.

I love my new house. I love looking out my windows and seeing deer in the backyard, hummingbirds everywhere, bunnies, and turtles. Oh shit, turtles. We live on turtle mecca, I'm sure of it. We've counted at least 27 turtles that have scattered around our property to lay their eggs for the season. We've also had one disgruntled snapping turtle the size of a cookie sheet out there as well. Our crazy German neighbor took it back to "state land" to get it out of our pond for us though. He's quite the character. He owns a Chinese Fighting Cock. Tell me that isn't a little bit strange...
I love that you can see every star in the sky at night, unlike down in Warren where you could see 3 if you were lucky. I love that the big dipper is always above our house too.
I love living close to Great Lakes Crossing and a Target at the same time.

I also am still completely in love with Nathan, if it's possible, I love him more everyday. We will be celebrating our one year anniversary on June 24. I don't know what I would do without him. I also love the fact that he has made this his second home and that he comes up here every weekend to stay with me. I have a feeling that when I get my apartment this fall, he will be a resident there just as much as I will be. We're going to his cousin's wedding next weekend and I can't wait. We're going to look so cute together it will be mildly sickening.

I do unfortunately miss the friends that still live down in Warren. If anybody wants to come visit. Leave me a message. It would be super fun... :)

Life has been really good lately, and I'm hoping that saying that doesn't jinx it.

Went and saw an amazing concert last night, Sufjan Stevens at the tiny auditorium at Calvin College. We were about five rows from the front and it was incredible.
We had an awesome road trip to get to Grand Rapids and I love my boyfriend even more now. Except for the fact that he snores like no other.

We have sold our house and today... WE BOUGHT OUR NEW ONE!

It's brand new. Beautiful. Huge! We have a pond. It's not far from Great Lakes Crossing and a Target. So, I'm a happy duck. Now, it's time to focus on my apartment hunting and that makes me even more excited.


I wish it would get warm again so that life could be the definition of perfection.
:)

Well folks, it's semi official.
Our house has been sold and I will no longer be a resident of Warren, Mi.
(Well, after Easter anyways.)
It's sad. Selling my childhood home has made me really sentimental lately. Packing everything into boxes has made me take a good, hard look at all of the items that I've accumulated throughout my life. I've thrown most of it away.
My mom is extremely torn up about this whole thing. She is convinced that this is what her and my dad want, and by that I mean especially my dad, but she still cries when she looks at a wall or puts something in a box. I feel bad for her. I know that her new, gigantic house, way out in some distant township should ease her pain though.
Next year I'll move into my own place. Nikki will be living with me, but I will, for the first time, be some place that is decorated by me, paid for by me, and where no adults live whatsoever. It's exciting. I can't wait to decorate it and live there. IKEA has been calling my name for some time, and when school is over, we will become acquainted with one another.

For now, I will continue to do what I have been doing. Going out in extremely cold weather to school. Not studying for anything. Packing. Hanging out with my amazing boyfriend. Sleeping. It's quite a life if you ask me.

Yes.
Excitement.
Happy.

More good times with my love. But they all are, so I don't know what I'm talking about... duh.

Tonight, he bought us tickets to go see The Fray. October 19.

I cannot wait!

He is too good to me and I don't know how I deserve it....

I am so happy sometimes I have to pinch myself.

It's like he knows when I'm upset, and he'll send me a message telling me that he's thinking about me or something else that's cute that makes me smile...

Today, I sent him one telling him how pissed my dad made me, and he sent me back one telling me to go outside. so I do. and he gets out of his car with the prettiest gerber daisies. it was amazing. he's amazing...


Work is ehh... but whatevs. it's work.

School is going to be ok... I'm kind of excited.

That's life. and it's good..


except now because I have a migraine.

I'm so proud of myself!

I went to the store today and then I made one of Paula Dean's recipes.

Maggie's Chocolate Brownies.
It's brownies, but then there's a frosting to it.... with mini marshmellows in it. It's pretty to even look at. I don't want to cut it and destroy it. Making things homemade takes so long, but it's so worth it!


Tonight is going to be fun.
Movie night with Nate.
V for Vendetta. (we bought it yesterday)
Titanic. I had to buy the delux dvd box set! it was cheap. and it says the movie has an alternate ending. I was so intruged, what was I supposed to do?!

Mongolian tonight for dinner with the family I think too. This should be good...


Oh. and my Dad's Uncle from Minnesota, my Great Uncle died last night too... poor Beno...

Well, I haven't updated in forever. So here it goes, a quick recap of my life.

Went to WSU orientation and I think I'm going to love it down there. So, we'll see :D

Hallmark. Work, ugh. I love my job, when people there aren't assholes. Which is about 50-50. or maybe 75-25...

Nathan and I just had our one month. It's great. I'm happy.

That's about all I do. Work... so...





How is everyone else?

So, yesterday was pretty damn amazing.
(Minus my head feeling like it was going to explode all day long.)

Coney, good. Hanging out with a group of random guys I don't know, weird, but good. Keri Dane and Mike, hilarious and good. The only thing that would have made it better would have been Brittany, but that day will come dear.

Today though, lots of things were making me really pissed off. I don't know. I just need to relax. For real, if I don't, I know where I'm going to end up and I don't want that. But, just for once, I would like to understand people's train of thought. What the fuck... come on.

I'm just glad that I have gotten to hang out with Keri and Brittany lately. I never realized how much I actually am madly in love with them. Everyone should get themselves a pair like them, because they will make you feel a lot better all the time...

So. Friday. Can't wait. That's just what I'll focus on. :)

so there's that little beauty of a song, and then there's this. and i don't doubt that they do this too. because it's the south...


I said I'd do it Stac and I did. My ode to country music being at it's best... My my how the times change in the music world. None of that good stuff from when I was a wee child... Those were the good times.
