The past week or so has been pretty fun. I saw "Inception" which was amazing(^4328415), I got a manicure for the first time ever- just for fun. It lasted two whole days... don't think I'll be doing that again for a while. :) I've also deeply sunk into my obsession of two tv shows- Pushing Daises (adorable, much?!) and Criminal Minds. The minds of serial killers just fascinate me, I have no idea why.

Working at The Nanner has been fairly uneventful, and also kind of non-existent lately- boo. I did get some rad silly bands from my friend, Renee. I got a porcupine and a pipe wrench! Teehee.

I'm trying to quit spending nearly as much money as I have been, for two reasons. One- I need a new laptop. Mine is borderline geriatric by now... and Two- I've decided to get a tattoo. My sister is designing it, and I'm really looking forward to it. Maybe not the pain that may be involved, but the fun of having a tattoo. Yay!

Yesterday, Heather called me up and told me a man she works with has a niece or something that is looking into Asbury. She's from New York (the state, not the city), and was down to visit the school. He had asked Heather to come talk to her, and Heather asked me to come with her. We ended up taking her around the school, talking to her mother, telling them how much we love Asbury, and eating dinner with the family! It was a fantastic afternoon... and it made me realize how much I'm going to miss Asbury, and just being a college kid in general.

Life lately has been mostly uneventful. Working at the Nanner has been going well, though I didn't get many hours this week, sad.
One very exciting thing is that Kelsey is back! Yesterday, we all woke up early and drove to Cincinnati to pick her up at the airport. She had spent a couple weeks in Oregon with her family- but we are really happy to have her back!
I think I've decided to get a tattoo. I asked my sister to design it for me- it should be pretty sweet. However, with expenses mounting and school looming a mere month away, I am not sure exactly when I'll get it. Maybe Christmas break, maybe sooner, if I can afford it.
I finished watching through "How I Met Your Mother" and am now working on "Pushing Daisies." It's a super cute show, and inspires me to own a pie shop someday... then I remember what owning a pie shop would really be like - early mornings and probably grumpy customers- and I think... no, thanks.
Still don't know what I'm going to do with my life. I have ten months until graduation, and I just don't know. I keep reminding myself that I don't actually have to plan my whole life just yet... I just need "the next step." But I don't know what that will be either. Huh... stay tuned, I guess. :)

So the past few weeks have been fairly uneventful, mostly full of work (even a couple overnights at "The Nanner"). The lack of sleep had been a bit draining, though. And this week, when I've needed it most, several people have stepped up.

Susan, our GM told me that I was doing an awesome job at work, that I'm quick to pick things up, and that they have their eye on me.
Sam, another manager, told me she used me as an example to new hirees about how if you do well, you'll get more hours.
Jessica randomly gave me a call to say hey and left a really encouraging voicemail.
Friends have called and texted and just generally been the pick-me-up that I've needed.

Yay, friends! And yay, Jesus.
