This week feels like it’s flown by. I can’t believe that it’s Friday already. It feels like the entire summer has sped by too. The mornings are cooler and the evenings are starting to get shorter. I’m actually looking forward to fall though because it’s my favorite season. I can’t wait for cozy sweaters, mugs of hot apple cider, and cool, crisp weather.

I know I’ve mentioned before on the blog that I was buying a new car. My Malibu was 13 years old (even though it doesn’t feel like I bought it that long ago), and I’d have to get a few things fixed on it if I had kept it. My dad convinced me it wasn’t worth putting money into, so a couple weeks ago I started car shopping. After narrowing it down to four cars, three test drives, and lots of thinking and considering, I finally decided on a Yaris. I’ve had it for a few days now and I’m really happy with my decision. While it’s pretty small, it gets amazing mileage so my bank account will be thanking me when it comes to getting gas. I wanted something that was reliable and would get me to school and work safely. While it’s not very fancy it’s still an upgrade from my old car.

Indian Restaurant Butter Chicken August 28 2015

There’s been a new Indian restaurant near me that I’ve been wanting to check out for a few months now. I finally checked out Raj Palace one day this week after work. I’m so glad I did because the food was delicious! Since I was there for lunch they had some specials on, so I got butter chicken, naan bread, and jasmine rice. The portions were generous, so I wasn’t able to finish everything, but it was so, so good. I know I’ll be back soon. I’m very happy to have found a good Indian restaurant nearby, as my two other standbys are a half hour drive away.

It’s been the summer of the dentist for me. I’ve been at the dentist 2 or 3 times a month since June. I was there yesterday for an appointment, and I was very happy to be done in just fifteen minutes. It sure beats the two and a half hour appointments I had back in June. I have one more next week and then I should be done until my next check up in six months. I’ll be very glad to not have to go back for awhile. It’s gotten to the point that the receptionists know my name when they see me walk into the office.

My first day of school on Thursday! While I’ve been taking classes one at a time for the last two years to get my prerequisites done, I’ll be starting school full time in a matter of days. Thursday is orientation and classes begin the following Tuesday after the long weekend. It’s felt like this day would never get here. I’m pretty excited to be in a program that I’m passionate about and looking forward to learning as much as I can.

New LL Bean Backpack August 28 2014


I’ll be at school today for a job interview (keep your fingers crossed for me), and my plan is to get my ID card and books while I’m there. I hope it won’t be quite as busy and the lines will be a bit shorter. I’ve already bought my school supplies – a couple binders, some lined paper, dividers, and pens. Along with my LL Bean backpack that I bought last year, I’m feeling prepared as far as supplies go.
