It's Official!

As of today I am no longer an employee of Subway...and it feels great! I had a good last day though, my boss got me good luck balloons and a big cookie cake which was very tasty! But now I am looking forward to my first day at the bank. Also today.....my camera came in the mail!!!!!!! I was in such a hurry to get it out and take pictures but the only subjects I had to torment were my animals of course. So here is what my camera can do:

this is my cat Chester....It's not the best picture of him, he looks like he's saying "just take the dang picture!" I take LOTS of pictures of him cause he's so cute.

This is Shadow. He never takes good pictures so I stopped trying...this is the best I can do with him.

And finally, my dog Ozzy...he always turns his head like this when you talk to him...it's hilarious. So anyway, I know these are not the best pictures and that's because I am still trying to figure out my camera...it's really confusing but I'll get the hang of it eventually!

The new addition to our family...

No I'm not pregnant....this is so much better! (at least I think so)

Yesterday I was in my basic photography class and my professor was going over the million supplies we need for the class when he added nonchalantly that we are REQUIRED to buy a digital camera for both this class and my other class, studio practices. And not just any digital camera, an SLR digital camera which run $400 at the least. So since I am being FORCED to buy one, I thought it'd be silly to buy the cheapest one when they will be outdated in just a year or so. I should go ahead and get a camera that will last me awhile so I don't have to buy another one as soon. So I did a little looking around online and settled on one that has great features and will last a LONG time...it's just a couple (hundred) more dollars than 400 but it is really really worth it. I ordered it online at http://www.bhphotovideo.com/ which I strongly recommend if you need anything to do with photography. They are about the cheapest you'll find and all my photo professors buy from there too. So without further ado, I introduce to you my new baby:

It's a Canon EOS 30D, 8.2 megapixel.

I know, I know, it's beautiful. I can't wait till it gets here....I will be sharing my pictures with you all very soon. It's like waiting for a baby to be born....the anticipation is killing me. Well enough about my new toy, I'll let ya'll know when it gets here!

Not too bad

For my first day of school. I had English at 11 and it was pretty much just the basics today, getting the syllabus, first day lecture, you know, fun stuff. I think the professor is pretty nice but she seems like she will be tough, which I can handle....I'm pretty sure I've had worse. Anyway, my second class was my fundamentals of design. It was actually pretty fun. We played some pictionary, which I totally rocked at and won the winning point for my team(I know, I rock), and had to draw an object 30 different ways which was pretty challenging. Not to mention I already know three other people in that class, so I wasn't as nervous as I thought I'd be. So all in all it's all good so far, I still have two more classes on Wednesday and I think I'll enjoy them as well cause they are both photography classes. Well that's it for me, I'll let ya'll know how my other classes go on Wednesday.

News of Joy!

I would like to thank any and everyone who prayed about this job at woodForest Bank. I had an interview today and it went well then the regional manager called me at about 4:00 and officially offered me the job. I am beyond excited. Even though the pay is a little less, it is so worth it. I get to work in town and I get the hours I want. I am so excited that I only have to smell like nasty subway for 2 more weeks. I have already told my boss Mary that I am leaving and she couldn't have been more supportive and understanding. My first day will be the 30th. They said I have to go to a 3 day training and if they can't get it in Evansville, I will have to go to Indy for 3 days so I am hoping they get it in Evansville cause 3 days away from Ben is too long. I'm mainly excited that I get to dress nice for work...man...I need to get new clothes....hehe

I'm not left out...

of getting the horrible stomach virus from Hell. I woke up this morning with a terrible belly ache. I thought it would go away so I went on to work. I was there about 15 minutes before racing to the bathroom and puking my guts up. I had to wake for someone to get there at 10:30 before I could go home so I waited....in the bathroom. I have the "both ends" virus if you now what I mean. Well I can only pray it goes away fast cause I have a class at 6 tonight. for now I'll drink my magic tea and get some rest. To all of you out there who are spending the day in the bathroom as well(Sam, Mike, Meagan, Jacob...and more I'm sure) I will be praying for you too! I HATE being sick.

Fingers crossed!

I need everyone's prayers because a job oppurtunity has presented itself. I applied to the new bank in Walmart, Wood Forest, and they called me today for a phone interview and said they will call over the weekend to set up a formal interview for sometime next week. They have benefits and pay well and it would really help me out a lot. I am not going to get my hopes up too high but some prayers are deffinately appreciated. Isn't it funny how I just posted a blog saying how much I hate my job and today I get that call. I love you God!

It's been a few days

Since I last blogged. Mainly because every time I go to blog I realize my life is boring and nothing interesting has happened. So to my best effort I will try to make my last few days seem exciting.

Today is Andi's birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! My birthday present to her was watching Sophie last night while she and Jacob went out. Soph and I had a great time. We ate some Mickey D french fries, played with my dog Ozzy, threw stuff on the floor, you know, girly stuff. Afterwards she took a little nap. But she was so excited when mommy and daddy came back. We met them at the door and her face just lit up when she saw them. So sweet!

Work has been hell. Literally. I think that if I happened to go visit Satan in hell, it would be just another day at work for me. It feels like about 5,356 freakin degrees in there, customers are beyond rude, and co-workers are endlessly annoying. But fortunately for me school is starting soon which means less time at that God forsaken place. That is my venting for the day.

On to more exciting news, Ben and I decided to go to Brown County State Park up by Indy for our anniversary in October. Here are some pictures of what it will look like in the fall when we go:

It's so beautiful and I can't wait to spend some good alone time with Ben.

Ok well it's getting late so I guess I will be done blabbing now. Hope you enjoying wasting some time reading my blog.
