Gone, Gone with the Wind

Well hello blogging world. I haven't talked to you in a while.

Since I last posted, I interviewed for a 4-H Agent job with LSU AgCenter, was offered the job the next day, uprooted and moved to Louisiana, and am on my third week of working my job. This job is definitely everything I thought it would be. A lot of people get into their "dream" job and find out that it is not so dreamy. I, on the other hand, have so far found my job to be just as dreamy as I had hoped. Well, maybe dreamy isn't the proper word for it. But it definitely meets my expectations. I am pretty happy.

The town I live in now is super small and there is not a whole lot going on. I don't have (m)any friends yet.......but I am going out to eat with some people from church tonight and hopefully will make some friends there. Overall, I am pretty happy with this move.

It's a beautiful day, not a cloud in sight

Hey there world (who probably doesn't read my blog anyway),
Since I talked to you last, I have finished up all 4 of my spring classes, 1 class in May, and two in June, finished my comps, and am now just waiting on my degree to be conferred.
I have been pretty useless since I finished school.
I have gone to 3 states that I have never been to (Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio).
I also have been somewhat offered a job and it fell through so now I am beginning a part job in Starkville, and looking for a temporary place to live.

It's Been a While

It seems like an eternity ago when I last posted on here, but I decided to get back to writing. Maybe my blogging won't end with this post.
Since I last wrote, I have finished one semester of grad school and almost done with my second. I finish my Master's Degree in 98 days and this is exciting.

Ever more so, my life is an adventure. I have applied for 5 Extension jobs in Texas yet haven't heard anything back yet. Not shocking though.

Speaking of adventure, I got a text from a friend on Tuesday who had gotten his truck in the mud. I recruited another friend who has a truck to help him get his truck out. In the process of trying to get to the first truck, the truck I was in got stuck. Therefore, we were required to recruit more help, only for that truck to also get stuck. Whew, the pandemonium already. Then another truck came out to help only to get stuck while pulling the third truck out of the mud. While one truck did get rescued, we still had 3 trucks stuck. After about 4 hours of using the tractor, wench, and come-along, the third truck came out of the mud. At midnight we were exhausted and left the first two trucks stuck in the mud. I was told that the next day while trying to get back to the trucks to pull them out, the ATV got stuck. What a nightmare. Either way, all 4 trucks were saved and it makes a nice story to tell.
