Good and Bad days

Hey girls!

I hope y'all had a good Monday!

I went to Raleigh at 7:30 this morning to meet with News 14 about my new internship, and then get some other appts. out of the way at school, it was so good to be back for a little bit! I went to my house and got everything straight, The den and kitchen still have to be painted, but other then that its all done! It is looking so good, i'm so excited to finally move in! I just found out some more of my friends decided to live a street over from us, so that will be even better!

Tonight was just a crazy night, I havent seen C in 2 WEEKS!! Thats a problem! So tomorrow, I am going to see him at the lake, but of course, since i'm still at home and my parents hate him its not good! I wasnt even going to tell them where I was going, because my dad works all the time, he would never know, my mom is the one who always asks ?'s which sometimes I dont mind, but that is one reason I cant wait to be back in Raleigh, I can date whoever I want and go wherever I want and not worry that I am disappointing anybody. My parents think C is rude (really hes just shy!) He came down to the lake for the 4th, and he didnt speak much but to be fair when I met his family for the first time I didnt really have much to say either, anyways my mother refuses to accept the fact that we go out sometimes, and its just casually...imagine if I really started dating the boy! She says she is looking out for me in the long run, but I can do that! I'm glad they care, but then again, its easier when they dont find out.

Overall it has been good being at home this summer with all thats been going on, I am really going to miss it when school starts, because I loved my jobs, and being with my family but in other ways I cannot wait to get started back in Raleigh! So excited, all the frat parties, socials, formals, and I just got my 2 Little Sisters at MC in the mail yesterday and they seem really cute!

OH MY GOSH! This is what happened to me this afternoon! Sketchy as HELL!
I was on my way back to Salisbury from Raleigh today, and I realized that I had forgotten my purse! I left all of my money in my car, but I ended up taking my moms car because...well ill get to that in a second! But anyways, so I was in Thomasville and had to get gas and a diet coke or I was just going to scream! So I called my mother and she said she would meet me wherever I got off! :)
So I am in this bright pink and green dress, and I pull into this Shell gas station thinking that it would be at least decent, but oh my Lord. It was really sketch!
So Im just sitting in the car, because Heaven knows I was not getting out...there were men with mullets, tattoos, and a gas man just threw his cig down right beside a pump and did NOT put out the flame! I was just taken back!
I was not in a mood to deal with a gas fire!
Anyways, so I was impatiently sitting in my car, and my mom was like 5 minutes away...thank God!
Out of nowhere, this fat ass man starts walking by and he peers in the windshield at me, he eventually starts walking backwards in front of my windshield and looks dead at me, whistles and says
"Hey Kitty Kat, do you wanna get with this, you can call me Big Daddy!"



I think I threw up in my mouth a little...
First off, I was not about to call anybody "Big Daddy!" Gross!

I just rolled my eyes and im sure had a fun little look on my face!
So he was like
"thats okay, maybe later!"

This guy weighed an easy 350lbs, was wearing a wifebeater, and smoking...(Hes all mine girls!) EWW!
Then a second later, a really cute guy pulled up beside me at the pump and asked me directions, so of course that made it all better, but wow, people today!

Okay so about my my car needed the front wheel bar fixed, its a Volvo S80, and its fairly new, so
I think when I hit a raccoon the other week it did a little damage, oh well!
I always try my best to break for animals, but sometimes it just doesnt work out! Oops! Anyways, so I took it up to my favorite tire place to get the tires rotated because I was waiting on the Volvo place to call me with an appointment time. So the place I took it calls my house like an hour after the car had been there and told my mom to come down, there was a big problem! So she goes down and they lifted my car up to see underneath on those car stands (or whatever they are called) and they had LIFTED IT TO HIGH!!! They dented the roof, and then they tried to bang it out with a hammer! My mom was extremely calm, and of course I was asked nicely (told) to wait in the car!
Anyways, the Volvo place can fix it luckily, and the place I took it is heavily insured so they WILL pay for it, but how random!
I really do like the guys that work there though, they have always done everything we need for years, so its really hard to get mad at them.

I have to list 2 things on here, my new favorite quote, and my new favorite song!

"I have been through a lot and have suffered a great deal. But I have had lots of happy moments, as well. Every moment one lives is different from the other. The good, the bad, hardship, the joy, the tragedy, love, and happiness are all interwoven into one single, indescribable whole that is called life. You cannot separate the good from the bad. And perhaps there is no need to do so, either."
-Jackie Kennedy Onassis

AND this great song I downloaded

It is called
"Mighty to Save" and it is just the best song! I could listen to it all day, I absolutely love choirs and I found it on iTunes by a Childrens Choir! So excited!

Have a great Tuesday!

I am cracking up about Big Daddy. I know that grossed you out! My mother was the same way with boys. She was the one always asking questions, and giving her quick opinion. I couldn't wait to get back to school, and not have to worry about her liking him or not. Glad your car is alright. Love the quote and will have to check out the song!:)

The Big Daddy story is hilarious!!

I can totally relate about wanting to go back to school but also missing home too. My mom always wants me to go to bed early, asks tons of questions, and all that stuff. I'm excited to get back to my apt and all that freedom!
