Just when I thought I couldn't get any crazier, I got a dog. His name is Rocko and I love him so much. He's a lot more work than my cats, but he's a lot of fun. He sleeps a lot and is pretty chill.



It seems like summer is never going to end and I'm loving it. Although I've been a bit of a home body most of the summer, since returning from Nepal, I have enjoyed it. Aside from working way more than I'm schedule to work, even work isn't that bad.

A  couple of weekends ago, Sof and I went to SLC for a Postal Service concert. The venue was weird but the concert was good. I discovered that concerts aren't really my thing anymore and that I'd prefer taking a road trip and listening to my favorite songs. I'm just too old for hanging out with tweens in a crowded room. It might also be due to the fact that most concerts I've been to, I was also drinking. Sober concerts just aren't the same. Not in a bad way, just in a way that makes them less exciting for me. So from now on, unless it's Ben Folds, I'll just stick to my iPod.

In other news, I'm getting really excited for school to start. It's a little bittersweet and very, VERY, exciting at the same time. I'm taking 17 credits of upper division Psychology classes so that I can minor in Psych. That wasn't my plan, but that's what I'm going to do now. I was really bummed that one of the classes I was most excited for got canceled but I think I'll be okay- they all seem pretty interesting.

I am still planing a candlelight vigil for addicts and alcoholics, as well. It's coming up and I'm pretty excited for it. Here is the flyer (thanks to Sof and her friend Ashlee(y)(ie) (no idea how to spell her name):

Anyway, life is good. If you're in Cedar or want to travel, come to the candlelight vigil and say hello! :)
Peace out.


Summer: Post Nepal

The past few weeks have been interesting and quite wonderful! After returning from Nepal, which was amazing, I thought life would be dull- turns out that it's been anything but dull!

Sophia moved to Cedar City, got a job and is taking some online classes from UNLV! It's been so nice to have her here and to get to see her every day. Since we're both working full-time, we don't get to spend a lot of time together, but it's nice anyway.

Last weekend we went to the Moapa zoo- Roos N More. I was very disappointed and felt pretty sad for the animals there. I was expecting something a lot different and not so ghetto. Oh well, it was nice to get out of town for a minute and the animals were cute.

I've been stressing about what I am going to do after I graduate in December for a while now and didn't think I would be able to get a job because of my DUI and such...in the last week, I have gotten a job offer (couldn't take it because of school) and another really great opportunity that I am going to be doing. I also qualified to take the Juvenile Justice Counselor exam to work for the state. I take the exam in about 10 days and I'm really excited. I won't be applying for state jobs until I graduate, but it's nice to know I have the option.

After meeting with my advisor, looking at a billion schools, and debating about whether or not grad school is for me...and also deciding on which grad program would be best, I have decided to apply to the Masters of Public Administration here at SUU. They have a non-profit concentration and it just seems like the best option financially and also because I would love to work in that field.

I'm not sure if I'll get into grad school or not, but I will apply and go from there. One thing I've learned over the past couple of years is that my plans never turn out or I change my mind half way through- so I'm just going to enjoy the ride! I'm planning to enjoy cheap rent, not being tied down to a career, and spending time with my friends and family while I'm close. I know I'll miss Cedar when I leave- even though I'm pretty stoked to get out- so I'm just going to soak it all in.
