I'm A Big Kid Now

Well, I'm a car owner anyway. It was officially mine on Saturday, but I was finally able to get to the Johnson county administration building to have the title and registration switched to my name today. It's the first thing, other than my computer, that I own that cost over $200. I doubt my computer is even worth that much anymore. The insurance is now in my name too. Now if I can just get myself a job with benefits I will got from a big kid to an adult. I think that's kinda how it works anyway.

A little better...

I am slightly less overwhelmed now. I got my last lab report back and I had the highest grade in my class and it was my best one yet, so that made me feel better. I also got a second interview for the job I had the phone interview for this afternoon. I heard one of my exams tomorrow isn't going to be too bad either.

I feel pretty overwhelmed right now. Next week is finals, which is probably where the majority of my "overwhelmedness" comes from. On top of that is the whole graduation ceremony thing. I really don't want to go. It is totally meaningless to me and I can't even afford my cap and gown! I had to borrow money from Josh to pay for them. Actually I haven't gotten them yet. Tomorrow is the last day to buy them, so I guess I will get them then! I half want to not buy them so I can't walk. I am going to walk across that stage for my mom. I also have to figure out how to deal with the whole family issue. I still don't know what I am doing! I guess it's lunch with dad and grandpa and dinner with mom and sis, but I haven't even wanted to think about how that's all going to work out, so I haven't.

I also have two job interviews. One is a phone interview on Monday morning and the other is Thursday afternoon. I would be more excited about them if I knew whether or not I will have a job at the lab I currently work in after I graduate. Dr. Smith hasn't gotten back to me on that yet, and a couple of the women at my lab have been bugging him to get me hired. I don't know if I will be able to work after graduation! I am a student employee and once I graduate I am no longer a student and can no longer be an employee. I don't know when my next pay check will come because I may be unemployed in a week!

I just want this week to be over.

$6 and 6 hours

That's how much and how long it will take me to do 4 loads of laundry. I even had to dry one load twice! Thanks to Tacia I had enough money to wash my towels too. I was putting off laundry until I paid all my bills but I ran out of socks. I think it has been about 3 weeks since I did laundry. I know the last time was before Thanksgiving. I can't wait to live in a place that has it's own washer and dryer! I started at 6:00 and the last dryer load should be done a little before midnight. I should have saved some for tomorrow night so I could go to bed now.
