What's New

Recently, I have encountered what it really means to be working. I am now working two jobs which amounts up to 40+ hours a week. I've always had a job, but worked part time. Now since I'm out of school I figured that I have all this free time, so why not work as much as I can! I'm working at Jimmy John's which is a fast paced sandwich shop and at Heritage Homes which is an assisted living home. I work as a care taker there, and there are about seven residents living there. I really do love both jobs, which are completely different! The job at the assisted living home will really help me pursue a career in the health care field. It's great experience for me. I'm also starting up CNA school next week. I'm staying busy and loving life as a college grad!

My days are less eventful. I still work on campus doing early morning custodial (I start at 3:30...) and so then I come home and try to sleep for a while. Aside from that I try to do most of the house cleaning since Ashley works so much. Since school ended we've been trying to work out to get back in shape, last semester was a bit busy so we didn't get to go to the gym as much as we'd like to. Anyways, my life is fairly uneventful. I work, sleep, clean, read and I'm thinking about playing the wii.. but never get around to it. We are watching Lost... Ashley has never seen most of it and so we have started from the first season on netflix and are now on season 3. I'll maybe write again if I ever do something eventful.

Another Thing...

We celebrated in Park City with an awesome sombrero

Playing Catch Up!

So I haven't blogged in awhile and A LOT has happened! First of all, I graduated!! I now have my Bachelor's of Science degree. Time is so weird! I remember sitting in my elementary cafeteria when my mom would bring me and my brother lunch and her telling all of us that we have to go to college. She was the cool mom, well still is. Well I did it! I'm not finished either! Now I only have two more years of school to officially become a PHYSICIAN'S ASSISTANT! By the way, I think that title is so bogus...it should be Assistant Physician for all that they do. Anyway, I cannot wait.

My parents were able to come up for my graduation and Nate and I were able to spend some time with them finally! It sucks only being able to see them like every six months! We had a lot of fun with them, for what little time we had. We went to Yellowstone on Saturday and drove around. My parents were even able to see Old Faithful!

Now Nate is on his seven week break in between semesters. We're just waiting for his LAST semester to start! I can't believe that we only have one more semester here in Rexburg. It's bitter sweet. We will miss this place, but you probably won't hear me saying that come winter time when we move...hopefully!

I just got a job, and completed my first week. SO glad that is over, I don't like first weeks. I like when I actually know what I'm doing. I also got offered an internship for this fall, which will fulfill my last requirement for my degree. If I won't be staying busy enough, I'll also be taking a CNA (Certified Nurse's Assistant) class this fall so I can get a job doing that in between graduate school. I've also been shadowing a P.A. here in Rexburg and LOVE every minute of it! If you can't tell, I'm so excited for mine and Nate's future! We're also studying for the GRE (Graduate Record Exam) which we have to take in order to apply for grad school. So I thought I was going to get a vacation after graduation, but NOPE! We're staying busy. Busy is good!
