Today I upgraded to WordPress 3.0. Thankfully it didn’t cause me to lose anything but it did cause me to be a bit frustrated. First of all, I had to upgrade it manually. I know, because clicking five buttons or something is harder than clicking one button. It also broke my horribly coded theme! You’re probably rejoicing on that one too because now I am using something more aesthetically pleasing. However, it was still annoying to set that up. All in all, upgrading to WordPress 3.0 just annoyed me but nothing horrible actually came from it.

I probably should have waited until tomorrow to say I had upgraded. I probably would have just said something like, “oh I upgraded to WordPress 3.0 and I put up a new theme because it broke my old one!” Now that I’ve whined and ranted…

My grandparents are here from North Carolina this week so I’ve been quite busy over the past few days. Today, Josh went fishing with my Dad, my Dad’s friend, and my grandpa. He took some pictures with his camera phone so I thought I would share them with you!

One year ago, this is what I looked like.


I married my true love and my best friend.
It was awesome.

One day ago, this is what I looked like.

I went to the beach with my friends.
It was awesome. Not as awesome as my wedding, but still awesome.

I didn’t take the job at Petco since it was only for a month while the store was being remodeled and when I went for my interview I realized it just wasn’t what I was looking for. I’m going to look elsewhere. Keep sending those positive vibes!

First of all, I just had to let you know that Hanna figured out that the clouds from my last post were Undulatus Asperatus. I got really excited about it and I wanted to share in case anyone else was interested! Thanks so much, Hanna!

Today was my last day of school. We had already had the last day of classes but I’ve been going in and proctoring finals all week. Today was really melancholy for me even though it was nothing special or out of the ordinary. This permanent substitute job has been my job for two years and I’ve loved it so much. I met so many great people and got such great experience. It was also my first job using my degree after college so it was really special to me. I’m sure I’ll have a lot of other great adventures, but that place will always be really special to me.

A bit of “oh crap real life” hit me last night when I realized the paychecks would stop coming. Even though I could still tutor and do some side jobs for my father, I decided to get myself a retail job for the meantime while Josh and I wait things out. I applied online at Petco, a pet store chain here. Twenty minutes after I submitted my application, the store called me to schedule an interview. I have an interview tomorrow morning. I feel like I shouldn’t jinx it yet, but wow… that was easy. Still, wish me luck for tomorrow just in case.

Aww. (by caitysparkles)

I know Moko will be an even more spoiled cat if I work at Petco! That’s for sure.
