Long Week

This week has been a long one for both Sutton and myself. Lots of meetings and classes and late night projects. I had my interview last week with D.A. Davidson and it went well. It turned out that the manager who interviewed me knew one of my professors very well and that professor and I have a good relationship so it was a great thing. I'll find out in March if I get the internship. Other than that things are really clicking. Lots of excitement to be had.

Former Soccer Player

Mom and Dad came down last weekend for my last post-season soccer banquet. Every year we have an end of the season banquet to stuff our faces, reminisce on past memories, hand out awards, and eventually say "peace out" to the seniors. Unfortunately this year I was receiving the "peace out." Although I am happy to have an afternoon to do whatever I want, I do miss soccer.... A LOT! I miss the girls, the drills, the exercise, the fun of soccer, and the large amount of endorphin release one receives from running for 2 hours everyday. Things I don't miss? Some of the inevitable drama that accompanies being around 19 girls every day, having to do homework later in the evening, my knees popping out, and practicing in freezing cold weather. Kimly and I had to come up with a gift for all of the girls on the team, we had a pro slide show DVD made for each girl comprising all of our favorite pictures and videos that were captured over this past year, everyone really enjoyed it I think. The coaches gave all the seniors our jerseys, some chocolate kisses, and a DVD recording of our last game played in the conference tournament out in Western Illinois when we unfortunately lost to Oakland in double over time (a real heart breaker). Well I am done reminiscing here, it is making me depressed. Tomorrow I am playing in a 4 v 4 indoor tournament so that should be a lot of fun.

Defective Genes

Alright, so I am with Hailey in the fact that Ben and I have decided NOT to procreate! Wow! Funny thing, Hailey, you said Cache thought they were cute, Dad said the same thing! And he was sincere about it. Men are blind to certain things I guess cause these rugrats are scary!!!

So it has been a long long time since I have blogged but I blame it on Ben since I have tried numerous times to but have been unable because my account was not letting me....turns out Ben had this whole shinanigin under some other account and I didn't know it (we won't mention that it took me forever to figure out on my own). Anyway.... Ben's birthday, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas were loads of fun! Rachel, one of my good friends who happened to be stuck with me our freshmen year, had a beautiful little boy. Shout out to you Rach! And I think that sums up all the big stuff.

Ben and I are all set up to graduate on May 2nd at 9 a.m. We are both really excited but also a little worried for what the future will hold, or lack to hold,(i.e. jobs!). Ben is applying for an internship in Montana, it will only be a summer thing but it would be a really great opportunity for him; we find out next month if he got it. I will be taking a couple grad school pre-reqs next fall and then hopefully I'll be accepted into a master's/RD program the following fall. Also, Ben plans to go to grad school and get an MBA but he is going to work for two years first since the majority of MBA programs require it.

Anyway, sorry for the overload of boring information, next blog won't encompass 5 months worth.....hopefully....but I think I've got this down now so no worries.

Okay so this is the only picture I was able to upload due to an "internal error" with the picture uploader thing. Always difficulties with me I swear!
