My life since graduating.

OK. This is going to be a long entry. Brace yourself as I feel like I need to rant and tell you everything!


I graduated th end of March from the Centre for Arts and Technology. I am now a graphic designer!!! I love my career, and I'm not losing hope on finding the perfect job! Amongst all this other busyness you're about to read about, I've been job searching. Wish me luck!


So when I moved home my family, my boyfriends family, and some friends all helped to get our (Ryan and I moved in together) house livable. The house is over 100 years old and there was work to be done! We ripped out carpets, old cushion floor, toilets and other random stuff. It was fun but it was hard work. Ryan and I went shopping for all the stuff we didn't own. It's so expensive and so fun and so depressing all at the same time. The Dollarstore is a life saver! I love our house! It's so us! It even has an island that my papa built for me nanny and flower gardens as of the other day! Come visit (if we know you). 


We no longer got moved in...without all the boxes even unpacked, and it was my 20th birthday! I was excited, but not overly excited this year. Not sure whyyy, maybe I felt old? haha...my mom was throwing a Tupperware party (yes it still exists) the day before my birthday! I went up thinking I'd be leafing through the sale flyer. No wonder I felt old...I was a 19 year old buying Tupperware. But when I get there I found out the party was for me! I got all the free host gifts and a bunch of other goodies! It was a great time and there was lots of good food! =) Thanks again mom, meant so much! <3


The week after Ryan and I purchased our daughter, Olive. She's a rabbit! She is so awesome. Did you know rabbits are a handful? YEAH. They are. She chews floors, furniture, rugs...basically everything she can chomp on. But when you go to scold her, you can't. She's TOO cute! She's getting better as she gets bigger. She's more use to us and she can't climb in behind the fridge =\ She loves carrots (obviously) and strawberries and apple tree limbs and much more. We didn't have her long and she started sneezing. Apparently rabbits can get allergies like humans, to dust and perfume and other typical stuff. Turns out she had a respiratory infection. We were so upset. Her nose was running and she wasn't happy little bunny anymore =( We took her to the vet, and she's soon done her medicine! She seems better so hopefully she's ok. Regardless, we are tickled with her and we still have her and our son Gus the hamster. I hope when we have real kids down the road they're not this hairy. 


The week after I was preparing to go back to work. As in work I mean Superstore. I was not happy. Being a cashier isn't terrible there, because at least I have a job. But it's getting to be a bit much. Almost 5 years. They know down to work there I know that I want to find something else. In the mean time, I'll continue ringing in groceries up to my eyeballs. But back to the main meaning of this story. I needed a car. I am a 20 year old and I don't want to rely on my parents to drive me to work anymore. So Dad and I sneak over to a used car dealership to take a look at a little Chev Aveo that was there. It was bright yellow, had a sunroof and power everything. It was cute, but it wasn't the one. But I test drove it, and had the "OMG this is perfect!" feeling. Then the next day my mom and I went down. There were some physical bumps and some transmission issues that would be coming up soon due to the amount of kilometers on it. ANYWAYS, we go for another test drive and then talk to the salesman about the numbers. We told him like 100 times it wasn't set in stone as we had a bank appointment the next day to discuss numbers. They wanted WAY too much for it and wouldn't take any money off the total. He wouldn't even throw anything in. Anyways, he told me someone else was looking at the car, but if I wanted to hold it I could put $500 on it and hold it. He said if I didn't want it I got my money back. So I put the money on it to hold it so while I made up my mind it didn't get taken. Before mom and I left that day they slapped a SOLD sign on the car! A little cocky I thought..but whatever. So the next morning we talked to the bank, and they couldn't do much. But mom seen an ad for brand new 2011 Hyundai Accents on for super cheap. So we stop in there. My cousin works there! I love her <3. I was use to driving Ryans car he bought last year, so when I test drove it I fell in love! We talked over some numbers, and a brand new car in LIME GREEN (my favorite colour of all time) had cheaper payments and warranty up the ying yang. So we go to tell the used car lot I didn't want the car, and he wasn't going to give me my $500 back! This was apparently because "they went through all the trouble of preparing it for me." ...which consisted of washing it, waxing it, and they painted the windshield wipers so you couldn't see the rust =\ Well after my amazing mother got done with them, I got my money! I'M PRETTY SURE IT WAS ILLEGAL! They said they'd give me my money back towards another car in their lot, holding me there to buy another. Like hell I'd want to go back! Ugh, twas a very stressful day! But, needless to say I'm the proud owner of the ONLY 2011 Hyundai Accent Sport Hatchback in Apple Green in Atlantic Canada right now! EEEEEE!  I love the freedom and love my car! It even has a sunroof! Peace out yellow Aveo. 


Ryan and I also attended our first Legion Dance! It was a live band, Short Notice. They were great! I got to chill with my parents and grandparents and dance all night! It was the Firemans Dance. It honors all the volunteer fireman around surrounding communities! My Dad is one of them <3. Very proud and very weird to be toasting my dad at a dance. Well, I didn't mind, but Dad said it was weird alot. hahahaha


Anywaysss, I'll add pictures later on down the road. I will add to this I'm sure as I think of more eventful goodness. Plus, I'm bumming my mother-in-law to be's internet. I can't wait to get internet at our house! AAAHH. I'm very tired right now as I walked 30km today to raise money for my church. I NEED A MASSAGE. For those of you who read all this, you are cool! =)
