So like a month ago I found out that I got accepted into the Utah College of Dental Hygiene!!!
The past month I have been scrambling around to get everything together for school and for moving out. Everything is in for school except my first payment of $9,000. One of four payments that I have to come up with over the next 20 months. Dang that's a lot of dinero, but I hoping to pay off the loans that my parents are going to have to get for me, about 2 years after I graduate. ----Which will be April 2011. I haven't even started, but I can't wait to be done! I really do not enjoy school... but I really love working. It's going to be really hard leaving my job in AZ at Oasis. I've been there for over 2 years, and it's been an awesome experience. I absolutely love the girls I work with and I have learned so much. Plus it was super fabulous always having weekends free and a flexible schedule for most of the time.
If school isn't too crazy, I'll be looking for some kind of work so that I am not completely broke for the next 2 years. JOY! I've only had one job on my life, so this is going to be a pain in the butt looking for a new one and then doing something completely new.
In Utah, the school is in Orem, but I will be living in Provo at the Branbury apartments. It's like a 5 mile drive, but hopefully, it won't be too inconvenient.
So the hardest part about having to move to another state is that I'll be leaving my great Friendship here. Had you told me like 7 or 8 months ago that I was moving, it wouldn't have been that big of a deal to me. But over these last few months I've become friends with some kindred spirits of mine. It's so funny how people end up together huh? Through the fates, Marina and I along with Megann, found ourselves tagging along with Jared, Brian, and Derek (The testosterone tower) With added fun with Nate.
We have all had a blast with all of our shenanigans! When Marina left me alone while she jetted off to Russia, Jared assumed the role of my best friend. There was an intense audition process, but he came out victorious from the battle with all the other hundreds of auditioners.
The guys were all super great and sweet most of the time while she was gone. I think that had Marina not left, then I wouldn't have gotten quite as close the them all. AND it would be slightly easier to leave. Darn you Russia!!! :) But dang do I love those guys. we are all just perfect for each other. Truly compatible. It's kind of a big deal.
I'm scared that I won't find any other friends that are even close to being as legit as the guys are. If people are unlegit, then I must quit!
Jared pinkie promised me that they would all take a trip up to see me a few times. Oh if they don't.. I am going to be so upset! I might just cry a little too. You can't go back on a pinkie promise though. It is like a binding, eternal contract. you don't mess with that.
So yesterday I made a bite splint( retainer) for a friend and trying to cut it out and make it smooth has made my thumb go numb. I haven't been able to feel it for 2 days. I think that it means that I'm going to lose the thumb.
It's not very helpful having a numb thumb when I am trying to pack up all my crap in my room. And I have a lot of crap! I think I could fill a garbage can that goes out side, to the top will all the papers that I am getting rid of. I don't even know what to do with all of my makeup. I have more lipstick than a Clinique counter.
SO the numbness has spread to my index finger and down my arm.... I think I'm in trouble!
