Oh heyyyy there!

I am alive, I promise! If you've seen my tweets, you'll know I'm without Internet! And with my work schedule this week, I haven't had a lot of time to research what I want and get set up. Luckily, my complex's pool has wi-fi (although it's crazy slow) and I finally made it up here to bust out a post. I've been trying to keep up reading from my phone, but I'm sure you'll be getting random comments from what I'm missing when I get my own interwebs again.

Anywhooo, I'm all moved in!! Ish. Very ish...

So Friday, I headed up here to clean the apartment. Christian helped me and we got it all done relatively quickly. Granted, he did most of the work.. That's what he's for right?!

These are some before shots..
Saturday, I slept in (on that beautiful air mattress) and finished getting the apartment ready for the furniture. My parents got here late afternoon and Christian and my brother got all the furniture in. For now, I'm pretty bare and won't be doing any decorating for a few paychecks. I've also decided it's silly to super decorate when I'm moving out by October. Anything I get for this place, will be for the next one essentially.

The only thing "set up"
My grandfather brought us Bojangles, pizza and Cheerwine for dinner and it was greatly needed. My parents left and headed to lake while Christian and I were lazy and I pretended I was actually going to keep organizing. Which has yet to happen. 

Sunday was also for sleeping in (hey! I started real life this week, I needed rest!) and then we had Bruegger's for brunch. I am obsessed with that place and there is one about 5 minutes from me. After Christian left, I went grocery shopping and run other errands and helped Zuko get accustomed to the new place. I think he's good now...

We were also invited to cook out with Christian's college roommate/best friend's family and that was so much to do on the last night before work. It was so chill and I always love a good free meal ;)

Monday, I started work!! So far, I am LOVING it. I love the fact that I wore jeans on Tuesday with TOMS. I love the insanely delicious food that I get to eat for $4 every day. I had swordfish on Tuesday with the best mashed potatoes I've ever had. I love the people on my team and the people training us. 

Monday's lunch. $4. 

I also love that they photoshopped my ID badge. Okay, I don't know this for a fact but I know I did not look that good at 8:30 am after waking up later than I planned. 

Christian also came over for dinner Monday night and this is how it went down...

I don't have room for my kitchen table and my parents didn't bring the coffee table so this is how we'll be eating until I drag my butt to IKEA to scrounge up some better furniture. This is also Zuko's "look out the window table" so I have to 409 it before we eat dinner. The things I do for that cat. 

I'll be honest, here. Working full time is making me sleepy! I've tweeted every day this week about needing a nap. It's not that I'm not used to and don't like being busy, it's just that we're spending every day in a classroom setting just listening to tons of information being thrown at us and trying to absorb it all! My brain just shuts off the second I walk out the door!

But, it's all worth it and I'm so happy I'm done with "real" school for quite awhile. I'm also reallyyyy pumped for this weekend. It's the first time I'll get to go out with some of my Charlotte friends while living here and I plan to soak up a lottttt of sunshine by the pool with a couple of adult beverages. 

Anyways, the point of this long ramble is "Hi, I'm alive, I have no Internet and my life is super crazy and awesome right now" and I hope you won't abandon me while I'm gone ;)

Happy Thursday, friends and I hope to be back full force on Monday!
