A Real Life Update

Okay. So I am feeling the beginnings of stress. By the end of this month I have to move out of my house in Provo and hopefully move into an apartment in San Francisco. 

I am going to go for one weekend (either this coming weekend or the following) to look for an apartment. I don't know what will happen if I can't find one in that weekend. 

I then have to pack up all of my crap, while still keeping up with school, and perhaps even get a little ahead to compensate for the days I will disappear off the face of the earth moving and settling in. 

The semester is done for me in the third week of May, after which I had darned well better have a full time job lined up. I am already looking into a couple of summer jobs working with kids (my default, fall-back work). 

Oh. And I still haven't printed out my portfolio or written my letter of intent for the art direction track in the advertising program! I am still uncertain as to whether or not I should redesign my resume. Everything needs to look polished and perfect. Thankfully, I am pre-registered for Fall classes contingent on my acceptance so I have had a bit of leeway on portfolio submission (but I am feeling like that time is up). 

So this is the month to buckle down. 

What have I been doing with my time? I have been making a half hearted attempt to regain the weight I lost when I came back from San Francisco. I plummeted to 145. At most recent weigh in (Friday) I am 147. Fortunately, my bench press has not suffered. 

Also, I have been disgracefully indulging in Sex and the City, movies with friends, and eating out with friends. At the same time, I think it's been a good thing for me. Well, I should probably not eat out so much since I need to save money, but I feel . . . pretty damn okay. 

In some ways it has been kind of frustrating because I just have this feeling of  . . . waiting before I can really do anything. Thankfully, I think I still have time, that if I am prudent in my use of time, I can get things done. It will just mean a cut back in stupid, frivolous stuff like watching TV online. :D

For my friends in life, I want to thank you for your love and support, you guys in small and big ways are a balm to my heart  and soul
