Long time no blog. I’m sure my mom is the only one who has noticed, but I haven’t posted on here since December. I think that’s mostly due to the fact that today at 1:34, is the first time since Christmas break that I’ve even been able to think about writing something longer than an instagram caption to share with the world.
But alas, here I am. And it is summer. A time I never thought would come. And life is GOOD.
I’ve seen a lot of people posting life updates, and since I love reading about other people’s lives so much, I thought I’d do a little life update myself. Where to begin?!
A lot has happened since December, so I guess I’ll start around there. In January, I started my second semester of junior year (so I thought). I had signed up for four classes (12 hours) and thought I was about to coast through the rest of my college career. That is until, I met with my advisor and she informed that I was only 7 hours away from graduating.
My response: “OH….. Cool. Great. Awesome! But what does that mean?”
So we then formulated a plan to where I would increase my course load by one more class this spring, take 2 summer courses, and then finish up strong this December (2018 like as in this year… omg).
So I’m thinking, “Okay, one more class. Won’t be bad. Easy right?”
Ha. Not. I ended up starting my senior capstone course a week late and a semester unprepared. It’s fine!
I was feeling good about school and pretty motivated.
At this point, I also still work at Chandler Real Estate for those who don’t know! Me and my roommate, Kate, are both receptionists there. I’ve worked there for about 2 years now. Everyone there is super flexible with me and Kate and I’ve never had any stress with working around my class schedule. Kate and I split the week so we both have some time off.
With this in mind, I think to myself, it might be a good idea to apply for some summer internships now that I have to enter the real world and get a big girl job in less than a year. So, I began applying to various summer internships and sending my resume just about anywhere and everywhere.
Right before spring break, I interviewed to be the community relations and marketing intern for the Bowling Green Hot Rods. I was so excited and I ended up being offered the job at the end of my interview. There was only one hiccup, they wanted me to start in March. At the time, it was no big deal because I still had a few days off from my other job and my job responsibilities mostly included working games at night so I thought it was doable. I said “I’ll take it!”
Side note: I’m the most unathletic/unknowledgable sports person in the world so you can imagine the irony of me working for a professional baseball team.
However, the very next day, I got the news that my sidekick was leaving her duties as CRE receptionist to become a leasing agent at Chandler Park Apartments. The dynamic duo was splitting up. It was a very sad time, but I was also super excited for Kate! (She graduates from WKU TOMORROW!!! And I’m so excited and proud of her).
So, Kate moved desks down the hall and all of a sudden I was the only receptionist and also an intern and the moral of the story is somehow I made it through 3 months of working 2 part time jobs (40 hrs/week) and being a full-time student and trying to maintain a social life (but kind of failing at the last part, which is a-ok).
Oh and also I turned 21 somewhere in there which was super fun. Cheers to being legal amirite.
So that’s my life update. And I also want to add that I really love both of my jobs, it is very exhausting at times, but I have such wonderful people around me that make work so great that it’s worth not sleeping or having a social life 🙂
Now that it’s summer I’m excited to have a little more free time and enjoy my last summer before entering the real “real world.” Tbt to last summer when I was about to go to Italy 😦 Miss that place
Like I said earlier, Kate graduates tomorrow which is really sad but also really exciting! I’m glad she has to enter big girl land first because I’m really not ready.
Also need to give a big shout out to Cooper (best boyfriend/bestie) for listening to me whine and putting up with me for this long in general. This semester has been my hardest by far but he has been so supportive and encouraging, and I definitely wouldn’t have made it out alive without him.
Also shoutout to my family for being the greatest, but what else is new there.
Justin graduates in June which is terrifying but we will have one semester on the hill together so I’m hype for that.
Me and Dad are in depression mode because the Preds lost last night, BUT we will graduate together in December so that’s gonna be awesome.
AND that concludes my life update. Sorry it was a novel. Hope everyone has a great summer! Maybe you’ll hear from me again in 6 months hahah
