This week has flown by. Seriously. It's nearly Saturday already and I'm pretty sure the last time I was conscious of it being a specific day was Tuesday. Because on Tuesday, I got to reunite with the boyfriend. It was wonderful. I know we'd only been apart for, like, four days. But it could have been nearly a month until I got to see him and I missed him terribly and getting a chance to visit made my week.

I ended up driving down to see him and help him move into a new apartment. We ended up playing Call of Duty (he thoroughly kicked my ass) and wandering around the park we had our first date at (awwwww) and driving to the closest mall and wandering around. And this was probably the best idea ever. Because we discovered a store that sold puppies (hence the picture of me with an adorable puppy). Now, Brad and I both loovvvveeee dogs. Serious discussion has been had of the two of us getting a puppy eventually. So we were both super excited to go in this store. I felt like a little kid. There was the most adorable husky puppy and we tried to play with her, but she was scared of us and hid in a corner and peed all over the place. We ended up leaving after that, but we came back as we were leaving and played with the little guy in the picture above. He was awesome. He was bouncing around and playing and cuddling and nipping all over the place. I didn't want to let go. But, sadly, neither of us have the money or time or living conditions to take care of a puppy right now, so I had to leave my new friend behind.

Originally, I planned to come home on Wednesday, but I was having a lot of fun helping Brad move. He was switching apartments because he went to resign his lease and someone else had already signed for his apartment, but there ended up being another studio open in a different building. Personally, I like his new place much better. It was a little roomier because it had one less closet, and they gave him more furniture and he was able to set it up so there was a divided living area and bed area. His friend Kent came to help move the big stuff and we all hung out and ordered pizza and the boys played video games while I screwed around on the computer and compulsively yawned every two seconds.

But that's not all! My busy week got busier when I started my new job at Applebee's on Thursday. Like I mentioned before, I got a job hostessing for the summer. I'm not really sure how much I'm going to like it. I've never worked in a restaurant before, so I've never had to deal with $4 hour wages + tip pool or being scheduled for a certain start time and working until they don't need you anymore or double shifts or any of the other craziness that apparently comes from working in a non-retail setting. All of the people who I work with seem really cool so far, but as far as the work goes, I could take it or leave it. But, it's a job and they're paying me and I really don't have any other options right now, so I'll tough it out.

That's my life in a nutshell recently. How have you guys been doing? I hope you're all having an awesome spring and that everyone's doing awesome on finals or at work or just having fun with life! Let me know about any cool things you're doing. I love to hear what you guys have to say. :)

More later!
