What a wonderful world

Yes it truly is. I thought when I started this blog that only those who I sent the link to would actually read it! How wrong I was! One evening as I was checking my e-mail I got this one letting me know someone had posted a comment to my blog. It was from Phats. Now, mind you, I had no clue who this was and really didn't think it was the guy I knew from my friend's husband. But I believe they called him "Fats". Not that he'd know this was me running this blog, but I still don't see him as the blogging type as he would have a hard time typing with his hands full with his beer mug. Although, I've heard that he's getting married and this chick has gotten him to clean up his act. So, good for you Fats!

Ok, back to the other Phats. He posted to my blog, so I checked out his. It's only fair and polite, right?! Seems like his is similar to mine in that it's ramblings of whatever seems to be floating inside our heads. Sometimes, it's just air here, other times much more. He liked my blog b/c it made him laugh so that makes me cool. FINALLY, I'M COOL!!!!! Never thought I'd see the day! So, thanks Phats for making me cool! It's a terrific feeling! I think I'll get a T-shirt made up so that everyone knows I'm cool! :D (And thanks for the birthday wishes)

Well...that's it for now. I have to get some shut-eye. Gotta go to work tomorrow. :( Not as much fun as it was when the hottie doc was there. But, oh-bla-di-oh-bla-da life goes on.

Smartest girl in the land

That's me! I looked at my grades online, as they do not send "report cards" anymore...guess they think no one wants a physical record of their grades, or it's better for those who did not fare as well this semester so as to not have proof of how poorly they actually did (I'm talking the 1.0-ers here), and I was shocked, astonished, and amazed at what I saw. Not one, not 2, but 4...count them FOUR 'A''s glared at me from the screen! Wow! A 4.0 when I didn't think I was doing that hot in a couple classes AND I was working about twice the amount of hours I'm technically supposed to be working (about 30 instead of 16!). It really blew me away. Then I received a nice little letter from KSU telling me how proud they were of my achievement and that I was on the Dean's List. Woo hoo!

And I'm sure you're all wondering how my summer is going. Well, here it is in a's the same as when I was in school except that I'm not in school now. I actually miss last summer when I was taking Physics....I know you're thinking "This chick is CRAZY! She misses PHYSICS?!?!" And, yes, I do. It did take up a lot of time and was frustrating to me in the beginning, but I got the hang of it and liked it. Even the doctors I worked with (workED with as they have moved on from their residency), who took physics, didn't like it and wished me the best of luck with it and did not extend an invitation to help me with it. I know I impressed them with my 'A' in the class. Although that still didn't lead to anything (for those of you who know the situation there, you know what I mean by that). :( Oh well. On to bigger and better things, right?

And I just spent the week off of work for "vacation" and did a bunch of nothing except get older (I turned 30 on Wednesday). Although that was a nice day. I met my friend for lunch who I haven't seen since her wedding in March and then met my other friend to hang out and check out the $1.50 movie "House of Wax." Now, if you know me, you know I don't like scary movies. I must say though that this movie wasn't really scary, scary, but fairly gory. I didn't watch Paris get speared in the head, but I heard it. It was very predictable though. After the movie, we went to Denny's for a midnight snack (it was actually dinner since we hadn't eaten all day, other than ice cream). I was treated like the Princess I am! :) (the only thing that could have made it better was hearing from a certain someone, but that didn't happen and I'm not going to hold my breath (or wait) until it happens either...his loss)

So, now I'm at the tail end of my vacation and I have to go back to work on Monday. Woopedeedoo. It won't be the same that's for sure, but I'll manage. All I keep thinking is that I'll be outta there by the beginning of next year (God willing!) to start my internship and work on getting a "real job" for after graduation. That's right! I'll be graduating in the Spring!!!! I can't believe the time has flown by, but at the same time has dragged on...and on....and on. I'll just have to figure out where I want to work. I know not around here. I'll have to go either North or South. I'd prefer South as there's not as much cold and snow, but have the feeling that other responsibilities (Self-inflicted or not) will keep me in the vicinity. We'll just have to see from where all the offers will come, 'cause I'm sure EVERY firm will be looking for someone who got a 4.0 ONE semester!!! :) Just keep an eye out for me on the telly. I'm sure to wind up there some how, some day!
