I said that I was gonna be a better LJer but here I am slacking again! Not too much has been going on...just enjoying my summer with my friends!
Some random things...
Alexis and I have been playing DDR again. I've lost a few pounds over the summer and it feels great. I'm not to my goal by any means but I feel a lot better about myself.
I can't believe that Rachel's wedding is only a few months away! I really need to get my ass in gear in writing my speech and all lol. I'm meeting up with her this weekend to talk about everything. I think we finally picked out a maid of honor dress for me haha. I gotta order it soon so it can be altered in time if need be!
A few weeks ago myself, Bob, Caitlin and Brian went to Cedar Point and Put-in-Bay. Cedar Point got rained out but PIB was a lot of fun, the best part being when we went jet skiing. All in all it was a great weekend. I love that Bob and Brian were friends before any of us started dating. It just makes it a lot easier to do couple related things...which I have never really gotten to do before.
Speaking of, things with Bob are great. I spend most of my nights at his place...he works from 7am till about 5 or 6 monday through friday so besides having one day off together on the weekends thats mostly when I can see him. He officially said "I love you" (sober lol) the Sunday morning after we got back from Put-in-Bay. :) I met his mom and her boyfriend a couple of weeks ago and I think she likes me. She invited us to the county fair on Friday but I have to work of course. :( He has been a HUGE help to me this past week because he fixed my breaks (using his work discount so I only paid $90 for it all) and then fixed my car again after another break-related issue happened that made my car undriveable (boo for tow trucks lol). We get along really well and he's just amazing. :) <3
After a little confusion, I got everything squared away for this semester. I ended up getting approved for $17,000 in financial aid this year. I know that that's a lot of money to take out in loans, but my plan is to use this money to pay off ALL of my credit card debt (which comes out to be about $5,000) so that after I graduate I can consolidate my loans and only worry about one monthly payment for everything. $4,500 of it is actually a Pell Grant that I don't have to pay back so I'm really only taking out $12,500, and since all my loans are federal ones the interest shouldn't be too bad. Also, after paying tuition, books, and my credit card bills I should still have money left over to use for summer classes so I'm not too overwhelmed my last year in college. The day I walk for graduation will be the happiest day of my life I swear lol.
Before paying everything off I took advantage of a credit increase, splurged and bought an iPad. I LOVE it haha. I was gonna spend almost as much on a Netbook for school when my brother suggest I get a tablet instead since they can do everything a netbook can and more (plus he said he doubts net books will even be around for very much longer because of the tablet). I'm actually typing this entry from it right now :) I got the cheapest one, 16 gig no 3G just WiFi since I have a 3G phone and didn't want to worry about yet another plan.
Well that is all that has been going on in my life recently. I hope you all are doing great as well :)
