Life is Beautiful.. :)

I just realized as I began writing this that I once again forgot my camera to put the pictures on here. :) I did take some actually, but I forgot to bring them to work with me today. So they will have to wait again. Over the weekend, my brother got to come home for a 24 hr pass. I went home to visit with him and the rest of my family. We had a pretty good time and he seems to be doing very well. I haven't done much this week besides go to work, and then last night I went to Hooters and watched the All-Star game with the TKE boys.. It was alot of fun!
I made an appointment with a counselor this week too. I have really been needing to do that, but I was kind of embarrassed. This week I conquered that. So thats exciting for me. The appointment is next Monday. Hopefully it will help with all the anxiety. The anxiety has been going very well this week actually though. I even had a few beers last night at Hooters. :) Haha. This weekend I believe I will be visiting Indianoplis area. Fun, fun.
I hope I remember pictures next time!

The Work Week Begins

Hey to all of you. :) I'm not so hot at this. haha. I meant to take some pictures this weekend to put on here but I totally forgot. This weekend, I got to go home and visit my family for 4th of July and it was wonderful. I watched Fireworks with my parents at Boggs on Friday night, and then Saturday I got up and went to my aunt's to help her get ready for our cook-out. It didn't end up being much of a cook-out with all of the rain, but we still had a blast visiting with one another. My uncle Eugene was here from Florida, so I got to visit with him. I haven't seen him since I was around 5 years old. Sunday I got to go visit my brother with my mom. If you didn't know, my brother is in the boot camp platoon at Indiana Southwest Youth Village for revoking his sentence when he was on probation. He has been there since April 30th. I have gone to visit him a few times and this seems to be helping, but it's hard to tell. He was in the residental part of Southwest last year, then he was on house arrest. We thought that he was doing better then, but continued to get into trouble after he was on probation. So, it's hard to say if he is getting better or not. I sure hope so, because he is really messing up his life. It's hard for me to understand how he can get in trouble non stop like that, and how drugs can become such a big part of someones life. I can't even imagine doing that. I just pray that he will find some kind of strength to fix his life. I also pray for my mom, because she is doing all that she can. She is going through alot of different feelings since this has happened. I hope that she will understand that my brother is 17 years old and he will always make his own choices no matter what she does at this point. It is a very hard situation for all of us.

Today I'm back at work and not wanting to be.. this place is so boring!! I try to find things to occupy me, but it doesn't always happen. I'm looking forward to going home and watching The Secret Life of an American Teenager. I missed it last night, but thankfully I have it on DVR. :) This week will be rather boring since it will mainly consist of work. I'll try to remember to take some pictures to post next time!
Bye. :)

Trying this out

Hey everyone! I have had a few turn of events in life lately, so I decided to try blogging. I am hoping that I'll do okay at this, but who knows. I have read a few blogs for a few months and absolutely loved the idea of this.. So here I go..
For any of you who didn't know, last semester I changed my major. I changed it to Health Services/Health Administration. I couldn't be happier with this decision. Once summer school is over, I am 14 classes away from graduation. It's kind of scary. I have been living in Evansville this summer, and still working at the Residence Life Community Center at USI. It is a really boring job, but it pays the bills that I have. I am actually currently at work right now. haha. I'm pretty excited to get off of work at 4:00 so that I can go over to my friend Amber's house and visit with her and Ashley. The two of them are so funny. :) I guess we're going to have hair coloring going on. haha. That is always fun. Guess that's it for now until I can figure out how to do more with this!!
Have a wonderful day!
