New semester, new year!

I started my first day back to college yesterday. I had to wake up at 6:50 so I could leave at 7:15. I am soooo not a morning person! Luckily traffic was pretty light and parking wasn't too bad because I was there so early.

My first class, Humanities, starts at 8am. The professor is pretty funny. She plays Halo Reach on a weekly basis and is kind of the female version of Ryan lol. She seemed really nice and I got to know some of the people in my class, which is cool because I don't usually talk to anyone lol. I'm actually kind of looking forward to my humanities class :).

At 9 I go over to the next hall for government. My professor seems very nice. He dumbs down the information so people that are new to the country can understand it so that is really good because I tend to get lost in these kinds of classes. I like him though. He's funny.

My next class is at 10, speech. YUCK! Thankfully it is mostly inter personal speaking so we only have to give 2 formal speeches. Yay! My professor kind of remind me of Jessica Biel. They look nothing alike but they sound very similar. She claims to be very relaxed but based on yesterday, she didn't seem like she was lol. Maybe I'm wrong, we'll see.

My last class is History. I haven't really formed much of an opinion on this professor. He is one of those people that try really hard to be funny which I kind of think is sad. He was obviously never the "popular kid". But he seems nice enough :).

Anywho, other than school all that has been going on is DRAMA.  People need to shut up and stop creating problems where there aren't any. It has been one thing after another for over a month now and I am soooo tired of people messing with me, my family and my friends. Get over yourself!

Oh Ryan has his wisdom teeth taken out tomorrow. I am meeting him after school to take him to get it done. He doesn't act nervous but Ryan doesn't ACT anything... ever. Lol. He is very good at pretending everything is ok. I'm not so good at that lol.

Well I guess I'll get off of here and do something productive, although I'm not sure what that would be since I am babysitting and all the kids are asleep lol. No homework yet either :) WOOT.

Well that's my Southern Soapbox for the day :) have a good night!

Bring on the Rain.... and the flare ups..

Well it finally rained! I was at Ryan's house last Thursday night and ended up spending the night because he was taking Hydrocodone and wasn't sure he would wake up so I stayed there to make sure he woke up for work the next morning. I woke up at 5am because I kept hearing this tapping on the window. You know how when you sleep in a place that isn't home EVERY tiny noise freaks you out? Or maybe it's just me.. but anywho I got up to see what it was and HOLY CRAP!!! There was this wet stuff falling from the sky?! Someone told me it was rain.. I had forgotten what it was it's been so long. It even began thundering! It was amazing!!! Well, I woke up MISERABLE! Ryan went to work and I was going to go home but I was hurting so bad the idea of gripping the steering wheel for 30 minutes and having to sit in one position made me want to die. I ended up taking 2 Aleve and 3 Tylenol PMs.... which of course, did nothing. I was miserable, Ryan was miserable because of his wisdom teeth... we were pretty pathetic. I ended up spending the night again. Sadly, the one person I thought would understand, didn't and that upset me a bit. It was the first time Ryan has ever seen me incapacitated. He was pretty sweet about it. We didn't really have anything that needed to be done so he played on his computer and I watched Netflix.

I have discovered that if I had Rebel and George at the apartment then I would feel much more at home than I do in my actual house. I have been told that it's because "home is where the heart is" and my heart is with Ryan. Also, there is no one there to tell me what to do. Everything is clean and organized(because i'm the one that cleans and organizes lol). I look forward to the day where my home is where my heart is...

Well, that's my southern soapbox for the day :) have a good night!

The apartment PICTURES!

FINALLY! I took a few pictures of the apartment today so I could post them on here lol. We've(well... I've) been trying to decorate and make it all homey feeling. I'm getting there slowly.

Finally hung the curtains!

I thought it was cute :)

The living room, a bit messy and the furniture
isn't how we want it so we'll see.

My favorite picture of Ryan lol. Oh and that's the kitchen...
Small but it works.. kinda lol
I'm pretty happy with the way the apartment is going right now. We still have a lot of stuff to do to make it feel like home but that will take some time. Ryan has had 4 interviews in the last 2 days so hopefully he will be getting promoted soon :). As for me... I have signed up for classes, unfortunately I wasn't able to get any online classes like I had hoped but oh well.

Ok, well that's my Southern Soapbox for the day :) Good night!

It's Gettin' Hot In Here!

Holy crap it's HOT! The high yesterday was 108 and the high today is 109! 17 people died the other day due to the heat. It's been disgusting! I was outside last night and it was 99 degrees, AT MIDNIGHT! Whats worse is it felt good lol!
So, Katy and Austin left yesterday to go back to Mississippi. I had fun while they were here! Before they left me, Katy, Austin and Maegan all went to eat at The Twisted Root. I LOVE that place! The burgers there are AMAZING! Mammaw stayed behind to help with Aunt Emily's surgery. She is having a hysterectomy on Friday and I am on Mollie duty. I will be watching Mollie, Emily's daughter, for at least two weeks. I am happy to help but am already a bit stressed because I will probably have to wake up at 5:30am, leave at 6am so I can make the hour drive and get there at 7am when Mollie usually wakes up. Mollie is a great kid but she is VERY energetic and requires a lot of entertainment, which makes for a very tired Julie.

This week I have been watching four kids for 3 hours. I was on my way to work yesterday when Lumpy Larry Lumina (AKA my car) died twice. I was afraid to keep driving it out there because it is mostly one way roads and Larry doesn't have hazard lights. We just got Larry fixed and it is WAY to hot for Dad to get out there and look at it.

Fibro Update
I have been extremely busy this month. I haven't had any big flares but I have been sore lately. My joints have been aching and my shoulders, as always, hurt. I have been falling asleep earlier but when I wake up I am SOO tired! I am sure it won't get better anytime soon but hopefully I won't have any flare ups.
