Ready to start

Tomorrow is Sunday. I'm ready to get this week started. I just want to get started.. and get finished. But I want to enjoy my time in between then and now.

I just want to finish so I can marry my shweetie pie. I love Seth Daniel Canfield.

Not much to say. Not a lot has happened. I'm moved into Goodwin Hall, the new Residence Hall. It's small, but I like it a LOT more than I thought I would :)

So those are pictures of the room and bathroom w/out any of my stuff.... I'll get some other pics later...

Stressed... but excited

I'm stressed, but I'm very excited for the semester to get started.

I'm stressed about Seth finding a job. He's been very busy with interviews and phone calls lately. I just hope he gets something good soon. Waiting has been stressful, and the events that have preceded the past couple of days make things even more stressful.

Seth was supposed to have a phone interview with Salem International University last Saturday at 11. Eleven came and went with no phone call :( Seth emailed the college and politely asked why he wasn't contacted. We were very upset. We both thought Salem stood him up. We were angry and upset and confused. Someone finally got back to him yesterday and apologized about not contacting him. She had a family emergency and had to leave town. That's totally understandable. So they rescheduled the phone interview for 1pm today. He said it went well, so I guess he'll find out later this week if he gets a campus interview. He said on the phone Salem wants to hire somebody by Friday. I'm really trying not to get my hopes up.

Tomorrow at 11am Seth interviews at Presley Ridge in Clarksburg. We're almost positive he'll get a job there, if nowhere else. I'm praying that Salem will contact him before Thursday and he can schedule an on campus interview for Thursday, or maybe Friday. But Friday Seth has an interview in Ripley for a case manager job.

I'm also stressed out because of how crazy life has been these past couple of days trying to get Goodwin Hall ready. Tomorrow the Fire Marshall will come and finally approve the building for people to move in, and then the RAs will be able to move in after 6pm. Tomorrow we also have to label furniture and do RCFs (actually, that might be Thursday... I just don't know anymore lol) And then THURSDAY is the graaaannndd opening for Goodwin Hall. All the RAs have to be there to help show people around and stuff like that. Friday is move in day.... THAT is going to be hectic.... Uuuhhghh.
I don't wanna get into it, but from tomorrow night on, we're going to be busy from 9-9, at least. SO MUCH TO DO!!!

I'm also excited, because I'm having SO MUCH FUN right now with my friends. I'm trying to enjoy as much as I can right now because its my last semester here. This is the end. And that is sad, but I have learned so much already and had so much fun.... It will be a good ending...

Speaking of good ending... now seems like a good time :)

RA training

RA training started yesterday...

I've had a LOT of fun so far. Most of the RAs are returnees: Brooke, Sarah, Sean, Alyssa, Katrina, Trae, Marlon, Andrew "Deezy", Brandi Phillips, Carrie Harpold, Darold Hughes, and Jimbob Howes... but we have a few new ones too! ... Joe Evans, Josh Tallman, Jessi Currence, and Eric Cheeseman. Everyone's a blast so far, and Angelina has fit in with everyone perfectly.

I'm already quite worn out, but I'm expecting to be even more worn out by the end of training.

I got to see my new room in Goodwin Hall. It is VERY small. I couldn't BELIEVE how small it was :( :( It's a lot like a walk in closet. I'm pissed about it really. I feel cheated by the school, and by the people I work for!! I'm going to have to take more stuff home. I don't have enough room for anything.

That's all for now. I'll post pictures of my new room as soon as I get over there. It should be the 18th or 19th...

Still waiting

Seth didn't get the job at UC. I was very disappointed. Not as disappointed as he was, though. You can imagine. He makes me proud though, because he's not giving up. A lot of lazy, good for nothing people would just hang up their hat and say, "I can't do it." But not my Seth. He's still trying. He's a busy-bee right now applying for jobs at places like Presley Ridge as a counselor for troubled teens, and federal prisons as a correctional officer. As of this morning he's applied for three prison jobs and two counselor-type jobs. He has an interview Aug. 18th for Presley Ridge! That's exciting. What would be even more exciting is if he can deny the benefits and get paid more than what they offer. He's still on his parents insurance so he doesn't need that. Presley Ridge doesn't pay that well, but if he could forgo the insurance and get paid a little extra, that would be fine and dandy!

I'm also a little busy-bee right now! I just started a new blog. It's called SelahThinkOnThis. It's basically all the short blurbs I've written/will continue writing that I hope to combine into a book and have published someday. Check it out.

I'm also a little busy-bee because students have been checking back into the Residence Halls, starting last week. Today has been extra busy, though. I've had to put down my laptop several times to go check out/in a student. Some of the students are Cheerleaders or football players that will be living in Pickens this semester, but some of them are moving into Pickens temporarily until we can get them moved into Goodwin Hall. They aren't happy about having to move into the un-air conditioned side of Pickens for a week and a half. BOO! I wouldn't be either!

I just had to move all my stuff off of the 1st floor alllllll the way to the 6th floor, temporarily, until I can move my stuff into my new room in Goodwin. But that SUCKED. Let me tell ya. I am NOT looking forward to moving again in a week and a half. I'm leaving most of my clothes packed. Everything is staying in boxes until I get it moved into my new room in Goodwin Hall.

That's about it for now. I'm going to go work on my other blog now and make it pretty!
