So I'll start at the beginning. On the 5th, I was off to Grand Rapids with my best friend's mother and my friend Guida to see Katrina graduate. I know, I had a whole post I was going to give to telling everyone all about this. But...well I kept forgetting to do it while I was at work. So, I guess I get to now. :)
We left Flint nice and early and in our 2 hour drive, I spent countless of minutes keeping Katrina's mom from going insane at times and keeping the peace. BUT, I was so happy to get there and have a wonderful day. We had lunch at The Hop Cat which, as I mentioned before, has these things called crack fries. They were better this time, it was nice. Then we were off to her graduation. I am so proud of Katrina and well the day was wonderful. The ceremony wasn't too atrociously long and I got to see my best friend received her Bachelor of Arts in History in front a ton of people.

Between then and now, I've been working up a storm. I took every shift I possibly could so that I could make as much money as I could. Early in May, I was told by a friend who is an RA that Sara, the RD was looking for more RA's and that she was curious if I was still interested in the position (I had applied before but didn't get it). So I gave it some major thought, scheduled an interview and waited. Well, as of this morning I GOT THE JOB! In the fall, I'll be joining some of the people I love as a fellow coworker while working the desk. It's gonna be an interesting journey, but it will be grand experience and I can't wait to start.
The week after Katrina's graduation started what made me feel like "summer" had arrived. It's weird how that happens, you've been on summer vacation for a couple weeks but you don't think it's really there until a moment. That moment hit in the middle of the week as I was driving home from Kevin's (I always go over there on Wednesdays for dinner and such). The windows were down, the sun was setting and I was driving down a back road and I smiled. And was so happy in that moment.
And movies, oh have I seen some movies this May. I went to see "The Lucky One" at the beginning of the month with Tanisha and Stephanie (she owns Jilly's pizza). Then the next week, Kevin, Tanisha and I went to see "The Avengers" (SO GOOD!). Not much later, Kevin and I went to see "Dark Shadows."
Mothers Day came and well, I celebrated it in a way that most really can't. While others are celebrating their mothers, I was celebrating everyone's mother. I went over to Kevin's that night for dinner, brought a cake and we ate the whole thing (it must've been good) between the 5 of us.

That brings us to pretty much now. This week I found out about the RA position and hung out with Kevin a bit. It's always nice seeing him as I enjoy his company. This weekend should be another fun one. It looks something like this:
2-5 am: Work
12:30pm: headed to the beach for the afternoon
After 2: off to Lapeer for lunch with Luna and her birthday party
afternoon: headed to kevin's to chill
So who needs sleep? It's going to be such a fun weekend though and I can sleep when I'm dead (or next week, whichever comes first...just kidding!)
Hope everything is wonderful with you all! <3
