Back for a bit

Wow, it's officially been forever since i've blogged about anything. My laptop has been broken for a while and I tried going to my grandparents house to use theirs, well apparently they don't even have one. I guess they got rid of it since they never used it. I'm back home visiting my family for the holidays. So now that I can use my parent's computer. It's been so long that I don't even know what to blog about anymore. I'll just give a few updates.
Eammon is in California right now, he'll be there for about 2 and a half weeks. Right after Christmas I'm flying down there to see him. I can't wait. They are going to have a dance-ball type thing for New Years. He invited me to it. I'm excited, but I don't have anything to wear. So I need to get on that.
Work has been really good, my boss seems to like me and I've made a few good friends. I'll definitely stick around for a while.
And like I mentioned I'm home for Chirstmas. I'm really excited to see all of my family again. I'll be seeing some relatives that I haven't seen in years.

Well there you have it

One of my friends from work invited me to go on a double-blind date. I actually think she asked two others before me and nobody would go, so naturally I had to say yes. We met up at a restaurant down town and to my surprise my date wasn't too bad looking. We have a lot in common which made our conversation easier. We stayed there way past closing and probably annoyed the staff. Anyways we decided to just end the night there since it was already late and we all had to work the next day. I'm not sure if it was a good idea but we exchanged numbers before we left. I haven't tried to contact him but he did call last night and left a message. I guess it wouldn't hurt to call him back, maybe we can just be friends.

Church anyone?

So I've been talking to the missionaries alot more lately. Well the sister missionaries have been coming now because I don't think the guy missionaries can be alone in a girls apartment. Anyways it's been going good. (Kristina I'm still going to take you up on the offer to ask you questions-thank you) It's pretty interesting. I'm excited to learn more. I've been trying to talk to Eammon about it, but it's hard because I can't really explain anything like it through email and thats all we can do these days. But I think it's going to turn out well.

So earlier this week some missionaries stopped by. I'm not Mormon or any religion for that matter but I do know a lot about the church because I used to go to church with my grandparents when I would come here to visit. So I let them in to talk. They were really nice and I told them that they could come back anytime. Who knows where this will go.

Life is good, work is good....hopefully things stay this way. Me and Kit have been hanging out a lot more. I'm making a bit more friends (mostly through her). Also I'm planning another trip home soon.

Now onto Eammon (I know I post about him a lot). He will be leaving on the 3rd of November. He was told he'll be stopping off in a couple different places in America at the end of December. I'll go to any of his stops so I can see him. With the timing maybe we can spend New Years Eve together.

R A N- three letters I hate. So I got a call from Eammon earlier this week giving me some bad news. He signed up in January for RAN (the Royal Australian Navy) and now they are calling him into duty. He hasn't heard anything from them since about February so he figured he wasn't needed. Well I guess he is. He'll be leaving at the end of this month or the beginning of next month which means he's not coming to visit. I cried when he told me, not necessarily because he wouldn't be coming which I am bummed about but more because it's terrifying not knowing what could happen. He told me it's okay because 1. It's Australia, how much trouble do they really get into and 2. It's the Navy he wont really be in battle....unless necessary. I'm so mixed with emotions. I'm scared, sad, and happy (he has wanted to do this since he was little). On the plus side he will be traveling and some main stops will be America. So I will be able to see him eventually. He's not sure how long he'll be gone. I hope not long.

So last Friday was my birthday and I decided that I was going to take Kit (the girl from work) up on her offer to do something. She got a bunch of her friends together and we went out to eat. It was actually a lot of fun. There was about 12 of us, so it made for a good evening. Afterwards about 9 of us went back to her house to just hang out and watch a movie. She surprised me with a cake, which I didn't expect at all. She's actually really nice, I feel bad that I judged her from the first time we hung out. We took a bunch of pictures with her camera. Unfortunately mine got a bit damaged back home so I haven't been able to take any here. Maybe if she emails me some I can put them up. So overall really it was a good birthday.  Oh and to top it off I talked to Eammon for a few hours on the phone, which is rare because we mostly stick to texting and emails. He said he has something for me but I wont get it until he comes.

Party time

My birthday is this Friday and I have no idea what I'm going to do. I think I'm going to treat myself with a day off from work but then at the same time that might be the only thing I do for the whole day and spending the day alone doesn't excite me. I still don't know enough people to have a get together or anything. The only people I really know around here are my grandparents and they're in bed really early so that doesn't work. I need some ideas of what to do. I've got a couple of days to think about it. A girl at my work (the one who tried to set me up while on her camping trip) wanted me to do something with her that night...but I don't know if I can trust her not to do something like that again. Basically what I'm trying to avoid is another Friday night of eating junk food and watching Ghost Whisperer.

It's official

I feel like I haven't blogged in...well forever. I haven't done anything too exciting worth blogging over. But I have been talking to Eammon about coming to visit. It's been complicated because it's not that I don't want him to come, I just don't know the place well enough yet to really show him around. But I better get on it, because he's coming. November 10th to be exact. I'm kind of nervous only because now I have my own place and I'm not sure if he's going to stay with me or if he's going to get a hotel, which I rather he didn't so he can save his money. I feel like I need more time to get things together.....I do alot of things last minute (I still haven't completely unpacked yet) but at the same time I wish he was here right now.

Sick and tired of being sick and tired

What a crappy couple of days. I've been so sick and I don't know whats wrong with me. I almost miss being back home where my mom would take care of me in situations like this. Since she's not I found it necessary to take care of myself....but I'm pretty useless. For some reason I haven't been able to sleep either and there isn't anything good on TV anymore except Gossip Girl of course, so I've resorted to reading....non stop. I've read all of my books. I might need to get a library card here so I can get something new. I should be trying to sleep but instead I'm blogging like an idiot, and all I've done is complain. But thats what these things are for...right?

Set up

This weekend I was invited by a girl I work with to go camping with some of her friends. I didn't have plans like usual and I didn't have a good enough excuse not to, so I went. We left Friday right after work and got up there before it got really dark. There were about 9 or 10 of us, which made for a pretty good group. The first night up there were we roasting marsh mellows when I had to use the hole in the ground. When I came back my seat was taken and the only empty spot was next to a guy named Ty. We ended up making small talk, it was no big deal. The fire started dying and everyone made it to their tents. For some reason (not known at the time) Ty found it necessary to walk me to my tent. We said good night, it was no big deal. The next day we went to the near by lake and went on wave runners. We were all pretty much paired up, and guess who my partner was? Yep...Ty. I didn't think too much of it and I tried to enjoy myself. Things just got weird after that. It seemed like everywhere I turned there he was. I didn't really understand what was going on until the girl who invited me there asked how things were going with Ty. I then had to ask if she knew why he was paying so much attention to me and why I was always being stuck with him. She then decided to tell me that she kind of set it up. I felt so stupid. After that I wasn't sure if she really wanted me to come with her or if this is what she had in mind the whole time. I've only been at my job for a week now and she spent most of her time giving me crap about guys. I really hope not all people are like this here.

On a better note I talked to Eammon and we were talking about the next time we are going to see each other. Since I just started a job and I'm super broke I wont be able to go there until next year sometime. I'm guessing around March. He on the other hand wants to come here sooner. Hopefully sometime this Fall. It's not for sure, but if definitely gives me something to look forward to.

Whats a girl to do?

This is my story (mainly for Kristina) about my complicated Australian boy. It all started about 4 years ago when I went to visit my Auntie in Tasmania for the summer, which ended up being winter for them ( I wish I had known that before). Anyways while I was down there me and my cousin decided to go to Australia for a week. She had friends there and it was only about an hour flight. While there I got introduced to one of her friends Eammon A.K.A Australia boy. Without sounding completely lame it ended up being a week romance. Nothing could really happen because we live across the world from each other. But it was fun at the time. Well it didn't really end then. We exchanged numbers and email and we've been talking just about everyday since then. I haven't been back since, but he has come here twice. It can't get really serious because of the distance although at times I wish it would. So to conclude my boring story, I don't know what to do. It's even hard for me to date because I can only think about him....cheesy I know. He wants to move to America but it's not the easiest thing in the world to do. So now I'm stuck where I am not knowing where to go from here.

Lucky me

I thought I left my bad luck behind. Yesterday on my way to work ( It was my first day) my truck broke down. Fortunately for me a little old lady stopped to help me. Well she mostly just talked to me while I called my grandpa to come help. So I was only about an hour late to work and my new boss Karl was almost understanding. The day did get better though, my boss's son came into work and it did make the day go by a lot faster....It was very nice eye candy. Obviously nothings going to happen though for reasons like 1. I work for his dad 2. I don't think he even noticed I was there 3. I kind of have a thing for a guy in Australia (It's a very complicated story). But besides that I can't wait until he comes back in again.

New town-New life

I've been here for about 3 weeks now.

I don't really know anybody, I live alone, I barely am making it with what little money I have but I've never felt more at home. I really love living in Utah. My life back "home" was full of drama....It was too much for me. So here I am in my one room apartment eating a bowl of mint chocolate chip ice cream blogging....and starting over. Tomorrow is my first day at work, my grandma who lives here knows someone who knows someone who helped me get this job. I think it will be good, plus maybe I'll meet some people. I'm thinking about getting a pet too. I do miss some things about home like: my mom's cooking, some of my childhood friends, the forest right outside my door, my dog China, and laying in the back of my truck looking up at the stars (they're the best there). Utah has got a lot to offer and I can't wait to see what adventures I come across.
