Ta da. Here is the view from my desk. Yay! The top bunk is mine. I love it.
So far college has been pretty awesome. My roommate is really nice plus I’ve been hanging out with a bunch of my friends lately. (Yay for not being a hermit in my room!)
Went to a special after-hours sale at Target last night. Tried some vitamin water for the first time. I actually think it’s really really good. So…I’m going to try to drink more vitamin water and less Mountain Dew. We’ll see how far that goes.
Purchased all of my books yesterday which was actually kind of exciting. I’m ready to start the school year.
Also finally did my Inspiratia-wall! Basically, I wrote quotes, bible verses, and song lyrics that really inspire me. Or, I find them totally awesome. Usually the former though. Hence the name of the wall. I can’t seem to get them to stick to the wall with scotch tape so…I might have to try something later.
Oh! I did discover that Noyer (the complex that I live in) has a deli! So I definitely had a roast beef sandwich today and it was delicious. Can’t say I’m not extremely excited about that discovery. So I felt pretty healthy with my sandwich and vitamin water earlier this afternoon. Not entirely sure what I’ll have for dinner yet though.
Still sorting out some kind of schedule for myself. Yeah, all my classes are in there, but I’m also adding things like my shift at the Daily News, bible study, and Cru. I’d also like to add “library study time” and “gym time.” I’d really like to get in shape or at least be able to breathe a little easier. So, we’ll see.
There’s a Pepsi truck outside of my window (I can see the loading dock for the dining hall) and on the door, there’s a winking face. It’s slightly creepy.
Anyway, that’s all for now!
Went to an Indianapolis Indians vs. Pawtucket Red Sox game with Ben and his family. It’s definitely clear who we were rooting for. :P
We had a blast and I even now own my very first Red Sox tshirt! (Yay for gift shops. I’ve been trying to find one at Target, Walmart, etc but they haven’t had one that I liked or had one at all.) I had to get a youth XL because the adult ones wouldn’t fit me but…oh well. :)
Still lots of Sims playing going on. As well as reading. (I’m already up to 7,000+ pages. Woohoo!) Other than that, not much has been going on.
So, I love my job. True, I answer phones all day and deal with people which is normally something I wouldn’t enjoy whatsoever, but I’m actually enjoying it. (There are some super super weird people that call Pepsi.) Plus, if there is any damaged product (aka the box is broken or damaged but the product inside is still good) the employees can drink that for free. Yay free Mt. Dew!
I know I haven’t been on much. I swear, it’s like if I’m not at work I’m either with my boyfriend, reading, or playing Sims. Except for last night because I went to a Hillsong United concert.
Also, on the plus side of my job, there’s sometimes some downtime in between phone calls and such. Needless to say, I read. Thanks to this, I’ve read 5,000+ pages this summer. (I have basically walked into work with a book that I’m maybe 50-70 pages into and I’ll finish the entire 320 page book that day. (Which is what I did with Audrey, Wait! yesterday.)) So, this is majorly helping me accomplish reading for the library’s summer reading program. Yay.
Alright, well…there’s Sims to play and books to read. Maybe I’ll be on later.
Guys, I might have my first job interview ever tomorrow. It’s a temp position starting on Thursday and going until August. I’m really really hoping to get it. It’s a receptionist job at a Pepsi company (which apparently if you’re employed by Pepsi it’s kind of like working for Hershey where you can drink their products while you’re at work. Guys…I love Mt. Dew. So needless to say if I get this, there will probably be a bottle per day consumed by yours truly as much as I’d like to deny it.) But I mean, receptionist I can totally do that. Filing, smiling, etc etc. Piece of cake. I’m the youngest person being interviewed tomorrow, but maybe they’ll hire me anyway. I mean, college kid looking for some money to help pay for school. The people I’m up against: teacher looking for a summer job, manager, and a high up secretary or something like that. Which…when you think about it that way I’m way underqualified, however considering the job…they might be OVERqualified. So maybe that’ll work out for me in the long run.
Wish me luck. I really REALLY want this job.
