Yellow Brick Road


Oi I'm tired.

Today was ok.  I slept in later than I intended to.  Been staying up too late lately.  I went to Target to get more minutes for my phone.  And a latte from Borders.  And I talked to my cousin Alex for a few minutes today.  It was nice talking to him, it's been awhile since I've talked to him.  And been several months since I've seen him.  I guess October was the last time I saw him.  It feels a lot longer than that though.  And we got my Aunt's stuff unloaded from the moving truck.  It's half filled with with my Uncle's stuff.  They're brother and sister, they aren't married.  After that we go some pizza's and went back to our house.  Watched the results of Dancing with the Stars.  My ten year old self squeed with delight when the Backstreet Boys performed.  I was more of a fan of *NSYNC than BSB.  But I still loved BSB a lot.  Nick was my favorite.  And he still looks really good.  Like he hasn't changed much.  Anyways, after DwtS, we watched Body of Proof.  Which isn't bad.  And then I took my Aunt home and came back here.  Now I feel like I'm about to pass out.  Carrying boxes is exhausting.  But it took us 45 minutes though.  So it wasn't bad at all. 

But yesterday,  I went to my very first shift at Bath and Body Works.  And I LOVE it!  I can't wait to go back.  It's so much fun.  I worked the floor a while.  I sold some products to people.  I guess I have a knack for it or something.  Because my manager kept telling me I was doing a good job.  And then the guy who was training me on the register told me I was doing a good job.  So, I think this is gonna be a good job.  I hope so.  I'm excited about going back to work.

I think I'm going to literally dive back into "Soul Surfer" and then get some sleep.  God, I love this book.  What a great story.  And a good example of courage and bravery, and her own personal faith.  Honestly, if something like that happened to me, I'm not sure I'd be able to get back into it.  But I suppose if you have enough passion and drive to do what you love, then you'll find a way to make it happen.  Actually, I found this cool video of amputees surfing.  Like, I mean leg amputees.  That's just amazing, and shows how much passion people really do have for their sport.

Anyways, I'm tired.  And I'm going to bed.
