Status Update: Employed

Image
Hi y'all! So, I have officially joined the rankings of those with jobs. I am not going to be a bum anymore as my brother likes to say. Shocking, I know.



I applied for a job in a pretty classy restaurant on the sixth floor of a building overlooking Lake Michigan. It's a very, very nice place and I know several people who have worked there before me and loved it.
Since it's owned by a senior living facility, all of the diners are regulars and after a while, I will know all of them by name and vise-versa. The best part of that is the relationships I'll eventually make (I love talking to and meeting new people), and when I graduate high school, there is a scholarship ceremony where all of the elderly give money to the students that had been their waiters and waitresses for so many years. That is an awesome, and very generous deal if I do say so myself.



When I got the call offering me the job, I was shocked and excited. For one thing, it was the first and only place I appli…

Back to School Q & A

Image
My concert was amazing *squeals* I'm going to try to upload photos and maybe videos sometime in the near future, but no promises. I'm not exactly sure how I can get a video from Facebook onto blogger, so anyone have suggestions?

Well, now that I've gotten that out of the way, hello everyone! My school starts this week *sadface* and I'm so not ready for summer to be over. Who's with me? This summer has been full of some awesome memories including some insane road trips, great robotics competitions, petting zoo fiascoes, and much, much more.
It seems crazy that it's already the time of year that we all have to pack up our school bags and charge full-speed-ahead into some type of learning institution, but alas, we can't seem to slow it's coming. I'm sure some of you have already been in class for a while now, but for those of you who haven't, I'm going to do a Back to School Q & A. Comment a question you might have and I'll do my best t…

July's Shopping Spoils (And Partial Birthday Haul!)

Image
Hello my dearest readers! I have to admit, this post is scheduled because today is the day that I am going to see One Direction and Five Seconds of Summer in concert *Hurrah*, and I won't have time to write a post as I'll be preparing myself physically and mentally for the event. Now, I'm not as big a fan of the band as I once was, but I still like them and I know this is a once and a lifetime opportunity, so I'M GOING AND NO ONE CAN STOP ME. 
I've already got my outfit picked out (which you can see the upper half of farther below), and I have a few things in the queuing area, prepared to be placed in my purse to go along as well, such as glow sticks, snacks, water, a poster that says "CAN I HAVE A HUG," and several things for the boys to sign just in case a miracle happens and I meet them lol. 
Anyway, I've been shopping a lot lately (well I've gotten this stuff over the course of 4 months), so I'm just going to share with you a few of the t…

App of the Month: WaterLogged

Image
Hello! 
It's summer, and although you should be drinking water all year round (obviously), you should be taking extra care to make sure that you are hydrating enough during this hot season. It is quite a bit easier for people to become dehydrated during the summer when they're spending long days bustling around under the beating hot sun, so the app Waterlogged was created in order that people could easily keep track of how much they have drunken, and then see a visual depicting how much more they should drink in a day. 
When I stumbled across this app a few months back, I decided to try it because I have a horrible habit of forgetting to drink enough.



Pros: 
- The app is easy to understand, set up, and use
- You can change the settings from ounces to liters (and a few other liquid measurements)
- You can set your own daily goals and the app will keep you on track to reaching them
- The app saves your daily progress in a graph so you can see how well you've been doing on meeting y…
