Spring is finally here

It's such a BEAUTIFUL day outside! Sunny, 75 degrees, it finally feels like Spring! I just hope the warm weather is here to stay!

So things have been going really well lately. Student teaching is almost over, it's really gone by fast! I only have three weeks left, then a week off, then GRADUATION! It's insane. I'm really excited to be done though, and to start subbing and if I'm lucky get a full time job. I'm planning on getting on the "preferred sub list" at Lubeck and Neale, and maybe another school or two, so I can hopefully work every day or close to every day a week. My next step is moving out! Right now there's two possibilities I'm working on. One is if I can talk her into it, maybe getting an apartment with Abby. The second, is to hopefully rent my aunt's one bedroom apartment by myself. I'm not sure which I'll end up going with, it depends on a lot of things. It'd be fun to live with Abby but it also might be good for me to live alone (or semi-alone, I know I'd have friends over all the time!) So as soon as I can get on my feet financially that's my next step. This summer is going to be all about saving money and paying down on my car as much as possible so I can hopefully get it paid off ASAP.

Brew and I are great. You know I just can't put into words how right everything is with him. It's the weirdest thing and something I've never experienced before. I've been in love most definitely before, but what I have with Brew is more than that, it's just like we fit together in ways I never thought possible. I LOVE his family to death, and it's just like our lives were meant to merge! lol. Anyway, we're wanting to go camping at Blackwater Falls after my graduation before I start babysitting for the summer. We're just looking for a couple of people to go with us to share the cost, and so our parents won't have a problem with us going alone (especially mine are pretty conservatively opinionated about that sort of thing.) So hopefully we'll get to go. I think it'll be so much fun. I haven't been to Blackwater Falls since I was about 4 so I obviously don't remember much about it.

ALSO, I'm hoping to go to the beach with Nicole and the Dugans (family we babysit for). I won't be getting any extra pay because they only need one babysitter, but Nicole wants me to come so we can hang out together during the days and basically just for company. I still wouldn't have to pay for a place to stay or for gas so basically it's a free trip to the beach! We're going back to the Outer Banks too which is wonderful cause I absolutely LOVE that place (I've seriously decided that's where I want to go for my honeymoon one of these days!) So hopefully that pans out too.

So all in all, it's a beautiful day and life is good :)
