comfort food.

These past few days I have been blogging from my iPhone, so bear with me until I get back near a real computer for some more detailed posts.

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love big dinners like Christmas and Thanksgiving feasts, but my favorite foods are definitely not found around these holidays.

Yep, that's my comfort food. Merry Christmas to me!

Just one of those days...

Today was just one of those days when...

1. You take a 3+ hour nap to only wake up feeling groggy, tired, and cranky.
2. You try to bake some Christmas goodies for family/friends and they all get burnt, no matter how well you follow the recipe.
3. You eat everything you shouldn't eat, and then eat some more.
4. You aren't as confident as you normally feel.
5. You just want to lay in bed and do absolutely nothing.

Anyone else have those days?

12-12-12...and time for the BIG NEWS!


I find it so cool that I got to experience today...
definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity!

The BIG announcement is... (drum roll please!)

So, let me begin by telling you a little bit of background. At one point in my 5 month teaching career, I was looking for a new job...after looking and realizing that I wasn't qualified for what I wanted to go into, I stopped looking, moved on, and decided to stick out teaching for the entire school year.  It would take a lot of self motivation on my part, but I knew I could make it work...somehow, someway.This was all before Thanksgiving, I went on Thanksgiving break, had a great time, and was ready to relax on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. After church, my phone rang,  and I saw that my mom had sent me a text message, and it had a business card picture. So, I called the name on this business card and it all started from there.

There is a gentleman from Jordan Lutheran Church that is a good family friend. After contacting him, he mentioned he was looking to hire someone at Cheminova. After looking into it more and the company itself (Check out Cheminova here!), I decided to move forward with the process.  I fell in love with the idea of working in the agricultural industry, especially knowing that it will help me reach my goals in life.  I have been offered the position and cannot wait to start.  I will be finishing out my semester at St. Pauls High School in January,but will be starting my new position shortly after!

So, here's to the next few weeks being crazier than ever. I have to find a new place to live, move into the house, and get things situated and finalized at St. Pauls High School.There is so much to do, so little time, considering I will be traveling for 10+ days of it!
