Time Flies Once You Grow Up.

When I was still in high school it seemed like time couldn't go by fast enough! Every day it was the same thing the same drama's same type of work. Now I can't get time to slow down! Between school and looking for work and keeping my new apartment clean time is just literally flying! It's a good thing Kyle and I live together or I don't think we'd see each other! Today for example, he went to school early this morning, came home for a few hours (while I was doing homework) then left for work and he won't be back til tonight. We have so much stuff to do! We have to get our mailbox key changed, renters insurance, and a lot of different things involving work and the apartment. I'm not entirely sure how wer'e going to fit everything into the week but we'll figure it out! My plan is to just make a list, do things step by step, and hope that things begin to slow down.

First Apartment :)

Wow four more days! Today as I was driving home from camping, I realized my boyfriend and I will be moving in to our very first apartment extremely soon! When I was younger I always wanted to grow up and make my own rules and be able to have my own money with no responsibilities. Then you actually grow up and realize that it isn't that easy and it isn't that fun. A couple of college kids with part time jobs sounds more like a struggle to me than anything else! Plus on top of working for money and our education, we have to work towards our relationship. High school flings are never finalized but when you make a dedication to someone its a lot more work then a school dance, stolen kisses, and a few roses. It's scary!!!! And having one of my big fears be divorce doesn't help. My parents have been divorced since I was 8 and almost everyone I know has had or is getting a divorce, so how the heck am I supposed to know if this is a smart choice? Is the risk really ever worth the failure?

Well, I guess it really IS time to grow up! I'm trying to make sure to get all of my homework done but tempting situations keep getting in the way! I play video games a lot and a new game is coming out this Tuesday called Halo Reach, it's going to be so difficult to make sure to do my homework BEFORE I sit down and play games. If I don't time will pass by and all of my work will be late when it shouldn't be! Another big thing coming up is a camping trip I'm planning on participating in. This weekend my boyfriend and some of our friends are planning on going camping for a few days so I really need to make sure my stuff is done! Looks like my Monday is already planned for homework then!

First Apartment!

Wow am I excited! This last week I've moved from Arizona all the way to Oregon and I'm staying with my boyfriend and his parents til we're able to move into our very first apartment around the 20th of this month! I'm excited and nervous all at once. It's very odd thinking that now I have no choice but to grow up! I have to get a job and pay bills and learn to cook healthy foods and pay taxes, I feel as if I still have so much to learn and yet I'm getting thrown into the real world after barely turning 18! Then again I wonder if any of us are really ready to leave the nest, we might think we are til we get there. After we are there we aren't so sure anymore! Having responsibilities is a lot tougher than most of us are prepared for!

Working in Restaurants! UGH!!!!

My first, only, and current job is at a Denny's. When I was first about to start I was so excited to be able to start making my own money and be more independent! Now I want to stay at mommy's house for the rest of my life. Luckily, I'm only a hostess so I don't get all of the rudeness from some customers but wow we get some mean ones! I don't really understand what drives people to feel as if they have the right to be rude to people who work minimum wage jobs. Even I feel as if people look down upon me and I'm in college trying to better myself. One of my co-workers actually had a customer tell her that she isn't doing her job right and she CHOSE it so she needs to work harder. We've had customers purposely make messes, yell at us, and not tip (which is depressing because the servers here only make 4.25 an hour.  We might work in restaurants so people think we should somehow help everyone at once but we're only human, we only have two hands, and we're all trying to make a living the best we can!
