Life Update:

So a lot has been going on lately, I feel like I never have a moment to breathe and now I’m getting a cold so that’s how life is going. I’m going to bullet point some important topics that I feel are necessary.

  • About a week ago my Aunt and Uncle checked into rehab. I am so happy that they are finally taking the necessary steps to getting their lives back in order. As a result I am expecting to be helping with their kids quite a bit over the next 6-ish weeks. 
  • SOOOO because of that I am filing for a leave of absence from my school. I only have one more class to finish before I am done with my bachelors but because of how financial aid works out I am not able to start my master’s until April. Hopefully I can get approved for the LOA and take my last class for my bachelors in January and then move on to my masters in April.
  • I feel good about it. I’ll be able to work more, which is great because I am so broke, but I’ll also be available to take the kids whenever needed. So now I just have to wait and see if I get approved for the LOA.

I think that’s all for where I’m at right now. Just trying to figure out my life for the next few months now that all this has happened. I will also be going up to Utah to visit my aunt and uncle at least once while they are there so don’t be surprised if I’m suddenly in Utah, that’s why. I’m good. Stressed. But very good.

I’m baaaaack and I’m going to try to catch up but we’ll see how far I make it before I get tired.
It’s really happening guys. 🙌 (at El Rey)

For the first time in awhile I am actually in California but not at Disneyland! So sadly it wasn’t me!

Sorry I have been missing in action but something very important came up. Yesterday my aunt and uncle checked into rehab. I seriously feel like a weight has been lifted off of my soldiers. I am so grateful that they are taking the steps necessary to get their lives back.

As a result of this I have had the girls for a few days. Tomorrow their grandma is coming to get them but I am so glad I at least got to spend some time win them. These kids make me happy.

These kids make everything, including the crazy, worth it.

Hello fellow Amanda and fan of The Cab! I’m doing pretty well, just got home from working and it’s on to schoolwork for a bit. Thank you for this sweet message, made me smile. Hope you are doing well.

It is a fantastic tool but it&#8217;s provided by my University so I can&#8217;t exactly link you to it. I don&#8217;t know if there is something like it online somewhere but maybe? Sorry I&#8217;m not more help!

Logged into my class today and my teacher is claiming part of our group paper from last week is plagiarized? Even though I ran it through the plagiarism checker before turning it in and it came back with 0% sooooo I’m a bit frustrated at the moment. Today is off to such a good start. /sarcasm

Any interest in what I read this month? I had a lot of schoolwork to do so I didn’t read as much as usual but I am proud of what I did accomplish. What did you read in September? Let’s chat!
