Life of a College Grad

I'm bored. And I have a confession. I like school because it kept me busy. I know I complained a lot but now that I don't have anything to do, I'm dying of boredom. I am my mother's daughter in that I get restless very easily. I have to keep busy but it's no fun doing things by myself. My roommate went home for the week and I'm BORED OUT OF MY MIND. My mom and brother left Sunday morning and it made me very sad. I hope it picks up here in Provo because this is just boring. Where are all the people? When does the playing start? I mean come on!

And I kind of wish I were home. I know I wouldn't really be doing a whole lot there, except working the life out of me, but I miss it. Sometimes I liked that. Going from job 1 to job 2 and coming home exhausted. Making money and being productive. I don't really know how I feel about staying in Provo for the summer. I have to but...I'm homesick. I didn't get to see New England in the fall (5 years and counting) and now I don't even get to go home for a visit this summer and my brother is coming home from his mission. This sucks. I miss the ocean. I miss my kayak. I miss my beach cruiser. I miss my dog. I miss my mom's gardens. I miss my room with all of its windows. I miss my books. I miss my mom. I miss my brothers. I miss the smells and the my New Englandahs. I miss my family.

I am working as a temporary floral arranger until Mother's Day. It's fun! I love flowers and it goes by super fast and it keeps me busy, but I miss my old jobs. The security of my old jobs and the friends I made. I think it's only made worse by my homesickness. But I have an interview on Wednesday for a job. Pray I get it. I'll need it to keep sane and busy oh and ya know, for money. Also I found out I begin my internship August 16th. I kind of hope it comes fast because then I'll be SUPER busy. Until then, I'll try to entertain myself. Or just watch TV. Or read.

Gabe, you have no idea how excited I am that you are following my new blog. You are my favorite. And the sweetest.

Also, in regards to a few things that need addressing:
1. I love Neil Diamond with an unhealthy obsession. Don't tell Kevin.
2. Cherish the boredom. Being an adult majorly sucks at time. For me, this shows in the form of waking up at 5:30 every weekday.
3. You need to road trip to California and somehow be in the vicinity of Fresno around June 19th. That would be heavenly to see you.
4. I miss your face.

Love you!
