So i went off birth control right.
and my period was 10 days late. but thats normal because hormones.
and then Jacob comes to visit me on Friday and I’m like yayyyyy
and then period was like “now’s my chance”
period starts friday. so Kayla is sad.
Then period says “imma finish sunday night when Jacob leaves”
I do not normally have 3 day periods.
and Kayla is sad.
what the fuck.
Even though i’ve been sick all week with a mild cold it hasn’t been that bad because Jacob is here and he takes care of me even though he doesn’t have to :) he’s the sweetest.
He has a 2 week break before his job begins in November so he’s spending it with me and dealing with my crazy grad school schedule.
Gah I just want cool, crisp weather, chai lattes and caramel apple cider, a big bed and my boyfriend.
So freaking tired of school
is pretty crazy.
I work from 10:30-3:30 and have class from 4-7
and then some days work 11:30-4:30 and class from 7-9
That leaves me a few hours at night to do homework and talk to Jacob.
Its not bad and my weekends are always empty but its so exhausting.
Work has been more tiring than usual. I work as an academic advisor and its pretty fun but not when you have to tell someone they’re 3 credits short of graduating. And then graduation applications are basically auditing students’ transcripts by hand because VCU isn’t as tech savvy as App. By the time I’m done with work i’m just so tired of focusing and thinking but then I have class. Work is supposed to slow down though.
My classes aren’t overwhelming yet. Its mostly introductory planning junk that I’ve done before so its not bad. I’m just stressed out because my GIS teacher is extremely Chinese and half the class is lost because they’ve never used the program before. AND i have to go to the lab on campus to work on assignments for that class since the software is being stupid and wont download on my laptop. So yeah try to fit lab time somewhere in that schedule.
I’m also about to turn 23 and will have to start paying for health insurance. I can stay with Tricare but its an extra bill for $176 a month. and I loose dental so i’m cramming in as many appointments in before my birthday.
Other than adult life being stressful I’m really happy. Being long distance with jacob is pretty easy. I miss him like crazy but it looks like I can afford to visit him every other weekend. He’s still working on getting a job. He gets interviews every week so any day now he’ll be moving somewhere :)
I’m so happy I got the job at my new school! I’ll be an Advisor for undergrads in the school of government. It pays $10.40 an hour and i should be working up to 30 hours a week. So excited!
This week I’m with Jacob’s family in Gatlinburg at their time share for a vacation. We haven’t done too many fun things yet…just the water park and mini golf. This place is like a theme park. Its soo tacky but at least tomorrow we’re going hiking in the Smokies!
Apparently my ancestors are from this region and I’ve been sent on mission by my mom to look at cemeteries and old churches tomorrow. And then Wednesday we’re hopefully going white water rafting!
Life is pretty great :)
