I Think I Made The Right Choice

It's too early to tell, but I think I made the correct choice in taking the job at The Farm. I really like it, and it's a weekend job (which I can keep during the school year... SCORE), and it's stress free. And it's working with puppies and kitties!!! I'm totally down with that. For me it's pretty much ideal, because when school starts I'll need the week nights to study and whatnot. You know, all of those school-related things. :) But yeah... Taking The Farm job was a good idea. At least, it looks like it was. I'm not going to count my eggs until they've hatched. Crossing fingers!

The only problem thus far is gas. I mean, I'll be fine with that... It looks like the gas prices are going down. At the gas station by my apartment, it's only $2.98. That's not too bad (It's so sad that I think $2.98 isn't that bad... I remember the $.99 days. Those were nice.) It is going to take a pretty big chunk out of my paycheck, though, but that's ok. I love what I'm doing, and it really isn't THAT far. Today I made it there in under 35 minutes. Not bad at all. That's probably how long it would take for me to drive to Cool Springs on a busy day. I mean, that area gets so congested during those lovely little rush hour times. Ick. Cool Springs can suck it, if you ask me. :)
But yeah, I'm pretty much at peace with this arrangement. I'll flush out my hours on Tuesday and Thursday at Borders, and that will have me working 6 days a week. On Saturdays I've made the decision to spend the night at my parents' house, because the Sunday hours are just 10:45- 1:30... So it just helps to save as much money on gas as possible.So yeah, I'll go to the 'rents' house after work on Saturday, sleep there, and drive back to The Farm on Sunday and then just go home. Plus, that means I get to play with my puppies Saturday night. :) Sounds good to me. Awesome. That also means that I can come home Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday to let the dogs out during the day (and get paid by my parents to do so!!!). Well, this is just turning out to be PEACHY. Awesome. I love how things pan out like they were just meant to be. Thank you, God. It seems that when you're doing what God wants you to do the world just sings. It's such a nice feeling to be at peace. I love it. If only all of life could be like this.

I've decided that before I die I want to own 1 of each of these dogs:

Leonberger-- The Leonberger is a large breed of dog. The breeds name derives from the city of Leonberg in south-west Germany. Due to this breed's large size, its love of muddy water, and the amount of attention and exercise it needs, the Leonberger is not commonly seen in large cities or towns.According to his original purpose, the Leonberger is a large, strong, muscular yet elegant dog. He is distinguished by his balanced build and confident calmness, yet with quite lively temperament. Males, in particular, are powerful and strong. Unlike most large breeds, they have a dry mouth and don't drool.

Great Dane-- The Great Dane is a breed of dog known for its large size and gentle personality. The breed is commonly referred to as the "Gentle Giant".

This blog is a bit short, but I don't really feel like blogging anymore. So au revoir, dear readers (few though you are!)

You know, you don't really notice it, but purple appears quite frequently in nature. When I think nature, my mind immediately imagines greens, browns, and generally all kinds of neutral colors, but purple is everywhere. It's pretty awesome.

Without further ado, the One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater by Sheb Wooley:

Great, huh? I don't remember when I was first introduced to this all-sorts-of-wonderful song, but I'm pretty sure it was care of my Mom. She definitely has provided quite a bit of the humor in my life, and I'm sure she's one of the big reasons…
