Maybe this will work...

Ok, so I still don't really have a concrete plan, but I'm just going to try something and hope for the best.

I work a double tomorrow. :(  Tuesday is my day off.  So, hopefully that morning I will get up and clean my room some.  Then, when my Mom gets off work, we're going to go to Michigan City to see if I can sign up for classes at the Ivy Tech there.  And if the classes work out, I'm thinking about applying to be a substitute teacher.  It's easy money and I'm pretty much guaranteed work if I say I'll work at any school in the corporation.  Plus, I'll have lots of free time to hangout with friends and Patrick.  Unfortunately I won't be making enough money to live on my own.  However, if all of that works out, maybe I can get a second job and start saving up lots of moolah.  So keep your fingers crossed for me. :)

Only one more week until Florida vacation with my favorite people!! :)  This time next week; Katie, Bobby, Patrick and I will be driving to Florida.  We'll be staying in Bobby's sister's apartment... for FREE!!  So, we only have to pay for gas and our food.  I don't think that we have too much planned that will cost a lot of money.  We might do a couple of touristy things, but we'll mostly be laying on the beach, relaxing.... :)  And we're all very excited for that!!  Both of the boys are farmers, so us girls hardly ever see them.  We're all just excited for some quality alone time with our significant others and our best friends!! 

This summer is slowly getting better, I realize that it's hardly summer anymore... but yeah... whatever...

Sorry... again...

Not that anyone actually reads this... but I apologize for my LONG LONG absence.

This summer has just flown by!! I started the summer out with high hopes and a good outlook.  And boy was I wrong...  At the beginning of the summer, I was working anywhere from 45-60 hours a week.  I hardly got to see Patrick and I never saw any of my friends.  I was always so tired and my room was a constant mess.  The pay was nice, but it wasn't worth my lack of sanity.

Since then, I have been working a mere 35 hours a week and I get to see Patrick every night for a couple of hours.  On my days off I hangout with a couple of girls at whatever pool we can get our hands on.  It really pays to know lots of people with pools.  So, we would just hop from pool to pool every week.  And on days that I don't work until 4, I either try to get some stuff done around the house or hangout with friends.  On days that I work until 4... I spend the evening with Katie, my bff and then when Patrick gets off work we all hangout.  So, really the summer is looking up!! :)

Right now, Patrick is back at Ft. Knox.  He has been there since last Saturday and will be there until August 9th.  It really sucks not being able to see him.  We do get to talk occasionally through text-messaging, but that's just not the same.  After I get off work at 4 on August 10th, Katie, Bobby, Patrick and I are driving down to Florida for a week. And the 4 of us couldn't be more excited!! We don't have a lot planned, we're all just so tired of working all the time and we would really like to do something exciting!!  We'll have a free place to stay, so we just have to pay for food and gas.

I have done a lot of shopping this summer.  So, I have lots of cute new clothes, but no money... whoops. Oh well.  I just love summer and the sun and water and free time!! And I'm 21 now... so life is just getting good. :)

However, I don't know what I'm going to do with my life. :(  I need to get a job and I need to take classes.  I don't want to live at home anymore, but I don't know where I should live.  I don't know if I want to move to Lafayette and take classes at Ivy Tech and then try to find a job there.  That would mean that I wouldn't get to see Patrick that much. And then, living on my own and paying bills would mean that I wouldn't have any money.  Or I could live at home and drive to Michigan City to take classes.  But then where would I work?  So really I'm asking you my avid blog reader to plan out my life for me... please and thank you!! :)
