Catching Up

Again, it's been a while since my last update. I've gotten a job working at a paint it yourself pottery studio and that takes up a lot of my time lately. I love working there and babysitting a couple of times a week. Here are a few photos to keep you updated with my life. I'll try to keep things updated better. (Also, I'll be going out of the country for 6 months starting in January and hope to keep this up. I should be able to keep up with it better because I hopefully will have more interesting things to capture each day). Anyway, hope you enjoy!

This is the bird I drew out for the blog I'm a part of with some friends I graduated from college with. It's called Needs More Blue and each week we pick a theme for us to create art based off of. You can check it out here.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure this is part of why our economy is so bad. 

I got to go to the first Bama Game of the Season. VS San Jose State

Huge, nasty spider that I killed with Raid. I was not about to get close enough to squish it. I was also afraid that if I squished it a ton of baby spiders would come running out. GROSS
 This is my super cool outfit for the "Anti-Penn State Birthday Party I went to before the Penn State Game. I got it at Vaper Thrift Store and it says "I <3 Ethiopia" 

Awesome tent I made with the kids I babysat, complete with Spider Man Sheets.



Balloons from work
My first NFL football game- Broncos VS Titans. GO BRONCOS. We won. :)

Day 38: Toy in my Cereal

Today I found a toy in cereal. Seriously, I didn't know they still did this! I didn't notice the advertisement for it on the box when I bought some at the store today but when I opened up my box of honey nut cheerios (that and grilled cheese got me through college- no joke. Not cuz I can't cook, but I never had time to cook) out came this little toy. Not the best toy in the world though. They just don't make 'em like they used to...

Day 36: No Air

No air, no air... No, I'm not making a reference to Jordan Sparks. My air conditioning is out. This is the temperature in my room at 10:30pm. Hmmm, could be worse, I suppose. At least I can sleep downstairs where the air is working. Ps: I know it says off. I turned it off so that it wouldn't freeze up from running 24/7 trying to cool down.

Day 35: New clothes for cheap!

Obviously, everyone these days is on a tight budget. As a recent college grad (who is still looking for a temporary job by the way),  I am also one of those people. Today I headed to the mall to spent some of my Belk gift card I got for graduation and walked out with only this shirt. BUT this shirt only cost $5.60 AND I used a gift card so it was FREE. :) Hopefully it'll stay warm a bit longer so I can wear it for a while. This was not the highlight of my day, though. I had a wonderfully encouraging conversation with a good friend of mine today, but failed to get a picture of us. Oh well, this is a good 2nd place.

Day 33- August 22nd

Hm, I knew I had gotten behind, but I didn't realize I had gotten THIS behind. Oh well, today is a new day. I mentioned in an earlier post that I like to drive- especially on nice days. So, I went for a drive and took some pictures while I was at it. This is one I took and edited. I wanted it to have a "old time" feel. It's not as good as I would have liked (my trial of photoshop went up and I'm saving up for a new computer before I buy it). But, here it is anyway.

So It's Been Awhile

Ok, it's been awhile since my last update. I know I said I was going to post a picture EVERY day but honestly some things I did just didn't seem like they'd be interesting enough to put on here. Also, I got a little discouraged. But who doesn't? We look to God for strength and keep moving forward. One of my best friends reminded me to seek to glorify God in the small every day things of life as well as the big things. I needed that reminder. Anyway, I have been doing things and here are a few pictures. I went to a drive in movie last night but didn't get a picture because we didn't get there until right before it started. Then it got too dark. Here are a few pictures to catch you up.

This is Buck. Two of my friends recently moved to Texas and I went to visit them before they did. Buck belongs to my friend, Eddy. This is us in the car. I love that he looks like he's smiling here.

 This was during Tax-Free weekend... That's right, if you spend $50, you get a free smoothie! Sounds like an expensive smoothie to me...

 I babysit every Monday (and other times). Silly faces with Leah.

Day 12: Eat Authentic Kurdish Food

Yesterday I went to Nashville to check out a Kurdish picnic. Nashville has one of the highest populations of any US city of Kurdish refugees. To learn more about these people and all they've been through, check out this link: Kurds. I don't know what the name of each food was, but it was so good. I also learned some Kurdish dances!
