I'm shocked that the credit card company hasn't called

Quick post, because I haven't in a while...

I just started my first week of the job. I had the privilege of going to Chicago to begin work (the office I will be reporting in to). It was an interesting/cool/weird experience to fly into your first day of work.

Its been a pretty busy week with not much downtime, and not enough TV time! But seriously, the movers are coming tomorrow and my parents have been gracious enough to help me pack. Um, when I move again I think I might be hiring packers because I don't know if I can do it myself!

Tomorrow night is my "going away" party which is really just an excuse to have a party and hang out with all of my friends. I'm excited... There is a lot of Bud Light Lime and PBR hanging out in the fridge. I'm making all the little snacks for it tomorrow, and I think my dad is going to order pizza too. Yay!

Anyways, I am tired and have taken about 3 naps today. I guess that is what happens when you have to leave your hotel in Chicago at 5:45 in order to be back in Raleigh by 11:30!

Next time we chat, I will probably be in Knoxville. And if I am on here, that means my internet and cable installation went without a hitch. If you know me at all, you know that I cannot live without my TiVo. Speaking of, I need to research more HDTV prices so I have something to hook my HD TiVo too... See why I am surprised that the credit card company hasn't called me yet?!

Happy Weekend!

Time keeps going by too fast.

This week I bought my first car. Hired a moving company. And spent way too much money at the mall buying real clothes and stuff for my apartment.

I'm starting to sound like an adult or something. Good thing I off-set all of these grown-up things by watching 2 hours of Degrassi on TheN while babysitting.

This week is gonna be crazy. I have a lot to pack and to do. Tomorrow is gonna be a busy day because I plan on trying to get a lot done. Key work is plan.

Reid better get a rose tonight!

I'm watching the Bachelorette, and I LOVE REID! I'm only half-way through (thank you TiVo) and can't wait to see Wes get kicked off.

I did get my haircut! Here's a less-than flattering picture of myself (yes, Mike and Shelly, this was taken in my special chair in the home office). I do most of my work from home in Mike and Shelly's comfy chair! What is gonna happen when I have to work in a real office? I am so not prepared for this.

Also, this weekend my mom, dad, and myself went to Knoxville to apartment-hunt. I was miserably sick, but I did sign a lease on an apartment!

I couldn't figure out how to make this picture bigger, but mine is the apartment on the third floor, smack dab in the middle of this picture behind a tree.

Above is my floor plan. Next big purchase, a CAR! I want a red Ford Flex. I love them and we are on the hunt for a good deal. I drove one this weekend and they are great cars. Can't wait to get rid of the Olds. Its been a good car, but its time for something new.

Ok back to the Bachelorette... GO REID!

Edit: I always make a post, and then think of things I want to add. I tried to sign up for online classes today so I can start my MBA, all but one was full. I was irritated. So I'm gonna be stalking the ECU registration page so I can sign up for another class.

Also, if you don't understand why I love Buddy's Pizza so much... Read this quote I read in O Magazine today. There is NO other pizza like it. None in the whole world, and nothing will ever, ever top it. Can I start the Buddy's Pizza fan club? If there is one, I want to be VP.

"I'm telling you that as transcendent experiences go, it's pretty hard to beat Buddy's Pizza in Detroit, Michigan. I could rhapsodize about the pure perfection that is Buddy's pillowy yet crackly crust with its ever so slightly fried edges and almost golden center. I could gush endlessly over the harmonic conversion of sauce and cheese, the hint of garlic and oregano, the touch of provolone, but for reasons that will never be entirely clear my editor has refused to provide the 33 extra pages I requested. Just know this: Despite everybody saying that when the country gets a cold, Detroit goes straight to bed with the flu, that it's got the highest unemployment rate, the most messed-up housing market, that the last one out should be sure to turn off the lights, I still believe in the Red Wings, the auto workers, and Smokey Robinson. I had Buddy's pizza on my first date, I had it at my sweet 16, I had it the night before I moved to New York City, I have it every time I come home, and I can assure you that where there is Buddy's Pizza, there is hope."
