so, it's been a while since i updated, which is generally the case. i attribute it to the fact that nothing of interest ever really goes on in my life and when it does, i generally don't want the general public to know about it. but ah well...that just means that when i do really update, it is more enjoyable, right? sure. so here's what's been going on lately...
first and foremost, chris and i resolved everything. he realized that my so-called friends lied to him, and therefore he had no reason to break up with me. so we kind of just decided that we never really and truly broke up anyway, and therefore we don't have to say, "oh...we were together for two years and then broke up for two days and then got back together." lol. and things have been going pretty well, for the most part. my mom had been kind of upset with him [and the whole situation, to be honest], so after he and i got things figured out, she asked me if he and i would be willing to sit down with her and talk. so we did, and i was scared because neither of us likes to be lectured to and i was afraid it would turn into this big, ugly mess. but it didn't, of course, and my mom basically just said that she really wants to get to know chris better, because he's obviously someone i want to have in my life. this week, chris is in florida [lucky ass], and he was so cute today. he called me and said, "hey! we just got here and i'm sitting out here by the pool, but i really wanted to call you and hear how your interview went!" it made me happy.
while i'm talking about my parents, i have come to the conclusion that they must really love me a lot and miss me a lot now that i'm "away" at college. for example, i stayed at home on thursday night because i had to get up at 5:30 am to get ready for my interview at cardinal health. my parents were so excited, because it was the first time that i've stayed the night at home since i came to college, aside from breaks and such. friday night, my dad called me and he said, "i turned on your electric blanket, so you can come home and spend the night again tonight!" i didn't, but it was still funny. and then today, i thought we were only going to do this little family outing to target so we could pick out a new bedspread for my room at home, but apparently, i was wrong. after target, we went to applebee's for half-price appetizers, then my mom said, "hey! let's go across the street to polaris and we can go formal dress shopping!" if you know me, you know i can't turn down any shopping trip--much less when my mother is actually offering to buy me a dress for formal [this never happens]!! after that, my parents had decided they wanted to go to the saturday night service at our church and we were running late, so they made me go with them. then we were hungry, because appetizers are really not meant to be filling, so we went to dinner at friendly's, like i was a little kid. haha. i think they ended up semi-kidnapping me for the day.
however, the formal dress shopping was a success! i only went to one store [jc penney's, actually], but i found a potential dress. we bought it because it fit, and if i find one i like better, then i'll just return it. i couldn't find a picture of it anywhere, so i'll just have to describe it...it's long, black strapless with small, shiny black and pink beads across the top. it ties in the back and below the tie, there's a little scoop [does this make sense?], and the back is really long, so there's a little train. it's cute, but i'm not sure i really like how it fits, so idk if i'll end up keeping it. i'm going to keep looking around for other dresses, so we'll see.
in case you don't know, i am in the process of interviewing for a summer internship at cardinal health in their communications department. it would be a great experience for me, and plus, i would likely make a shitload of money and make lots of connections. i had my first interview right before i left for spring break, and then i had my second one yesterday...both went really well. i was really shocked, actually, because they went so well. the second time, i interviewed with four people, one of whom was the vice president of the department!! the human resources guy i interviewed with said, "you are very impressive on paper [referring to my resume], but even more impressive in person. you have a great sense of self, determination, and a level of maturity that is uncommon in a college sophomore. those are great attributes." i was excited! :) i won't be hearing anything for at least two weeks [maybe more], but keep your fingers crossed that something good happens. i think that after all the shit that happened last week, i deserve a break. ;D
i am so excited for the following reasons:
1. baseball season really and truly starts tomorrow! :)
2. uconn beat duke tonight!!!!!!!!!! :D
3. i get to see my emily twice this week!
4. the braves' first game is on tuesday night, instead of tuesday afternoon [like it usually is], so i get to watch it with my dad!
5. i will hopefully get to hang out with val this week, too!
okay, i'm gonna go to bed, but aren't you proud of me for really updating? it makes my life seem so much more interesting. :)
