things are happening.

Things are beginning to go in the right direction.
I officially gave my 2 weeks notice.
I now need to start looking at places to live in...POCATELLO, ID.
Kind of funny, but I am sooo excited for this new change.
A little nervous, but I think thats to be expected.
I will be the newest esthetician at Aesthetics by Physicians Med-Spa in Chubbuck, ID.
I worked and prepared so hard for that interview and am very impressed with myself.
I'm really excited to be living in Idaho again as well as actually working hands on in a field I really enjoy.
I even got accepted to ISU in January and am really excited about the prospect of being back in school...although I still need to figure out exactly what path I want to take there.
I feel extremely blessed and grateful that this opportunity has worked out so far...now I just have to make it 2 more weeks here in SLC.
Weirdly, I think this is the happiest I've been in a while, I'm not sure if its because I am getting out of Utah, or just the brightness of the future...but I am happy,

Kelli Ruthmarie Brown is hands down my best friend. I am currently homeless. She is letting me bum off her and sleep in her closet under the stairs. I feel remarkably similar to Harry Potter right now. Only my closet is bigger. It actually has a big bed in it. But she lets me hang out with her every night. She even let me help myself to her food to make a lunch. She's the best. She's also really funny. Last night she washed the sheets and made my bed. She is the best.
I forgot my phone at her house yesterday and she drove it ALL the way up to me. Not only that but since I was feeling sick she brought me some alcaseltzer (I definitely don't think I spelled that right!), emergen-C, and a reeses!
She is the best...what would I do without her?!

nut job!

There's this really addicting reality tv show called the Bachelor. It's kind of popular, you might have heard of it. There's also this ever BETTER spinoff from it call Bachelor Pad. It is a load of crap but soooo entertaining! Anyway, a few seasons ago on either Brad or Jake's season of the Bachelor, was a super annoying girl. Quite possibly in the top 3 for most annoying girls ever. No, NOT Vienna (I think she wins) but Melissa.
Melissa Schreiber.
Occupation: waitress
Age: 32
Residence: Boca Raton, FL
Status: CrAzY!
She was on this seasons Bachelor Pad that I watched and it is sooo ridiculously entertaining!
I feel kind of bad for her. She was the girl who fell for the d-bags lies when he was simply playing the game. She allows herself to get walked all over because she is so dang emotional. I feel for her. Hello! Been there, done that. Know the feeling all too well! However, a lot of it she did bring on herself, being dramatic and thinking things that never happened or were true. She was quite the basket case on both shows.
That being said, she made a comment once that really stuck with me although I can't remember if it was while she was getting kicked off the Bachelor or Bachelor Pad. She said something along the lines of "when is it my turn? When do I get to fall in love and have my happily ever after?"
I totally feel for her on this one. I know what she feels, I know what shes talking about. Maybe not so much in a sense of  "why am I still single?!" Granted, I am only 23. I have plenty of time to be young and have fun before I will be ready to settle down. But sometimes it feels like everyone around me has their life moving forward and I'm just standing here spinning in circles.
 I just keep waiting for my real life to start!

i learned how to pick a pineapple.

Also watermelon, cantaloupe, tomatoes and avocados.
I went grocery shopping with Kelli and I'm not even sure how we got on the subject but we he was soon teaching us how to pick the best of every fruit and vegetable.
Something I've always wondered.
Now let me tell you in case you've wondered.
How to pick a good:
Pineapple- pull the leaves from the top, if they come out easy its a good one.
Watermelon- you HAVE to hold it up to your ear as not to get the echos from the other melons. then you tap on it, if it sounds hollow its a good one, if it doesnt echo its a dud.
Cantaloupe- its all in the belly button. First, it needs to be an innie. second, you push on it, if its too hard, its no good, if your finger squishes through then agian, no good. But if you can push on it a little but its still firm, then its good.
Tomatoes- are shallow. that ones all about appearance. if it looks good, it if good.
Avocados- frim. But not too firm, dark green to dark purple.

Interesting right?
Now let me tell you something delicious. Fresh cut pineapple and fruit dip made of a thing or cool whip mixed with a small can of strawberry yogurt...DELICIOUS!!!

Kelli also made me chicken enchiladas the other night. I ate 3. She makes the best enchiladas in the state of Utah. And that's an understatement. Then she made cookies...but she made them healthy with oatmeal...way to ruin a good cookie!!! Ok, they were still good. Then we realized how old we are getting because it was only 8:30 and we thought for sure it was at least 11!

In other news, I have to be out of my apartment in a week. I have no packed a thing. Where am I going? Who knows!
I have 2 barstools and a toaster oven that I need to get rid of...any takers?

gonna get there someday.

I have about 17 days to figure my life out. To say I'm stressed out is an understatement. In fact, I haven't even started packing ANYTHING because I would just rather NOT have to deal with it. I think I'd be a little more content if I knew this move was going to lead to something exciting, like a job that will let me get out of BROKE!
I guess that's whats been on my mind for the passed few weeks. Thinking that I've got to get a decent paying job so I can have a future! I barely survive on what I make right now and I am working 45+ hours a week! And my parents still pay for some very important living expenses like cell phone and insurance.
I want to be able to support myself financially, completely. But it just seems soooo far away!
I have a job interview in Pocatello tomorrow that I'm hoping turns out to be what I'm looking for. I wouldn't mind up and moving there to work.
But My dilemma now is this:
What if it doesn't work out? Do I stay in Utah, find a new place to live, probably have to sign a new lease which I don't want because I'm pretty sure no matter what come January I want to be out of here, keep my low paying job working 45 hours a week including Saturdays, and continue to look for a new job?
Move anywhere in hopes of finding a job.

Man, decisions are the worst! Can I just be a real adult now?? I want to have my own house, money to blow, etc etc :) Wouldn't that be the life!

I know, there's something wrong with me, I have a crush on every song lyric ever. But I just think Dierks nailed it when he said "who I wanna be still seems so far away but i know i'm gonna get there someday. When that'll be, guess only God can say but I know I'm gonna get there someday."
