Don't you LOVE a day off?!?!

I'm off today. No class. No work. Nothing.

Not True!

I need to fill out my 2010-2011 FAFSA. I need to go to the bank. I need to make phone calls for places to live. I need to go see said places to live. I need to go buy an Iwanta. I need to do my Wii Fit. I have a lot of things I NEED to do.

But it's my day off........

One Down, Too Many To Go

Well, next week wraps up my first semester back at school. Aside from the fact that I think I failed the science class (hoping for a D to keep the credit!), I think I did really well for the first semester back, after a too-many-years hiatus. This summer I am taking the next Spanish course, History, Aerobics, and Camping/Hiking. Yes, I said camping/hiking. Because I'm such a camper. And a hiker. Yeah.....

In other news, I am currently looking for a place to live.....with my sister. I've looked on the internet, but the problem is that while the pictures look nice, the reality is so much different!!! So, for the next couple of weeks, I am going to be looking at places and weeding out the good, the bad, and the ugly. Wish me luck!!

On another note, work is going ok, I suppose. At first, I didn't like this Kroger, but I had to figure out if it was because I truly didn't like it, or if it was just different from the one I was used to. I think it was probably a little of both. However, I have since had a heart-to-heart with my front-end manager, and gotten to know a lot of my cashiers. I think it is going to be ok. I know I'm not very well received by some of my peers, mainly because I am this new girl, who has come in from another store, and I get to do all of these things that, to my understanding, most of them haven't been doing for very long. Regardless, I have decided that I am above all of that. I am going to just do my job and not worry about their snide looks and comments. They can bury themselves- I'm staying above ground!

Why shouldn't I have a dog???

I am getting ready to purchase a Great Dane, something I have wanted to do for a very long time, and I feel as though everyone around me thinks it's a bad idea. Why is that? I think I am plenty old enough to be responsible for a dog. I am pretty sure I am finally at a time in my life when I can support a dog. If the last semester is any indication, I think I have the time for a dog. What's the problem? Here is my point of view....

It seems to me that people probably think at least one of these things: I don't have time. I'm not ready for a dog financially. I don't really like dogs and would not want it for very long. Great Danes, being a larger breed, need a lot of space, time, and exercise.

None of those are true. I do have time. I spend a lot of my time at home, either watching tv, reading, on the internet, homework, etc. Those are all things I can do with my GD. They LOVE being lazy. Everything I have ever read about GDs is that they like to lounge, they don't need a lot of exercise, they are laid back creatures. How does that not fit into my life?!? I make fairly decent money for a poor college student, maybe not for an intelligent 25 year old, but for a college student, yes. Ok, so I may not be a small, yippy dog lover, but I am a large dog lover. I want a dog I can cuddle on the couch with, or take for a stroll in the park, or just sit and pet whilst doing absolutely nothing! Great Danes are perfect for all of that! Look it up, I did! So, before you judge me, and my decision on not only getting a dog, but on getting a Great Dane, think about what my life is, and look up what a Great Dane is like, and see if the two don't coincide. I've done my homework, thanks.
