Because I like to take the surveys my aunt does and do them myself...

I will post another for today!

A to Z about me
Here are some ABC's of me....

doing dishes
Meredith Grace
just "5 more minutes"
light green or pink
White Gold
None sadly, but really want to learn guitar!
Student/Administrative Assistant/Tutor/Sales Girl/Babysitter... etc
none so far... but hopefully in the future
2 bed/2 bath apartment
none luckily!
the jerks that have the souped up cars that make them sound like douche bags and the people that like to wake me up in the middle of the night by being obnoxiously loud outside of my window
"The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds, and that's what you've given me. That's what I hope to give to you forever." The Notebook
2 sisters, one older and one younger
Between 7 and 9:30
my drawer overfloweth. I usually prefer boybriefs, but do have an assortment to spice it up
water chestnuts
Because Meredith refuses to go to the bathroom because she knows that it means I am leaving her.
Teeth (dental work), back (a kid pulled a chair out from under me in 6th grade), back (car accident), hand (car accident)
Chicken and mushroom soup with rice, mashed potatoes, fried rice

Another getting to know you...

The questions..

1. What year did you graduate high school?
2006, now I am close to graduating college! eek!
2. What part of your body do you neglect the most?
probably my stomach, I need to get some beach abs going!

I would take either right about now. I like the beach during the summer and the lake in the spring/fall

all I have ever had was a PC but I would LOVE a mac!
5. Did you wear braces?

well since I have been to college its been a lot! I lived in Thomaston, CT and moved to ___ CT. We then moved to NC and lived with the grandparents, from the grandparents to Havelock, NC, from Havelock BACK to the grandparents, and from the grandparents to "Newport". So technically that makes 5 so far. Then I moved from home to college, college to home, home to college, college to home, home to college, college to Uncle's, Uncle's to apartment.... and that makes 7... total of 12? And I am about to move again... boy oh boy!

COOK. I would take cooking any day over cleaning! I HATE cleaning but LOVE to cook!

I've been absent for the last few days...

So I have been gone for the last few days (with the exceptions of the postings about giveaways) because I have been on my last spring break. One would think that I would be off doing wildly exciting things for my spring break, ESPECIALLY because it is the last one ever, ESPECIALLY because I have yet to do something glamorous and fun for spring break, and ESPECIALLY because I have been off of school! Well, to those of you who think that I should be off doing great and exciting things, I agree. Sadly, I didnt have any fabulous plans for Spring Break 2010. I did enjoy a lovely few days at home with my family (and my dog), but it was by no means exciting. Monday I took my Mere Bear to the beach and let her play in the sand and chase seagulls. Tuesday I had a great dinner at my Grandma's house (home made mashed taters, YUM). And Wednesday was a big bunch of nothingness. I came back to Raleigh yesterday to work and that is what I will be doing all.weekend.long. Of course, the first part of the week was cooler and cloudy when I had nothing to do and all the time in the world to enjoy being outside and now that I am back to the working world, it is 72 and gorgeous outside. C'est la vie.

Meredith and I did enjoy a wonderful morning at the dog park with her good friend Chloe that she hadnt seen in awhile. Meredith also managed to get absolutely filthy and needed a bath by the time we got home. I also got my new Bibles and devotional book and spent some time with those this morning.

I guess I should be grateful for the down time!

Getting to know YOU

The questions..

1. What's your favorite Easter candy?
Anything fruity. Jelly Beans, starburts, and the like
2. Who do you think is or women?
Is this seriously even a question? Women! Have you ever walked into a boys apartment/room/living space? You can definitely tell a male lives there!
3. Which do you prefer..wordy blog posts or ones with pictures?
A little bit of both! I like to get to know people and I feel I do that through the wordy ones, but as an amateur\
photographer, I love ones with pictures too!
4. Were you popular in high school?
I had friends. I was not one to fall in with a particular crowd, I like to mix and mingle! (a little of this and a little of that)
5. What's your bra size?
6. How many states have you lived in?
2- Connecticut and North Carolina
7. What's one blog you read every day?
I am new to the world of blogging, but I definitely read my aunt's blog every day. (Laura's 2 Little Boys)
8. Peanut butter or Nutella?
I think I have tried Nutella once, so I am going to go with peanut butter.

How did I get here?

Recently I have found myself in that stage of life where you look around and realize that all of your friends are engaged, married, are having kids, or already have kids. I look at my life and think "seriously? At my age? I am soooo not ready for this!" My best friend growing up got married about a year ago and is now expecting her first little one. My roommate and best friend is engaged and is getting married in June. Basically every girl that I graduated high school with is married and/or has kids.

I am quite content with my dog Meredith, whom I treat like my baby. Before having this dog, I never realized how distinct an animal's personality can be. Meredith is quite the entertainer. A few nights ago, she was literally doing tumbles in my living room. Seriously? What dog does that? She likes to take her toys out of her crate in the same general order and place them around the living room in the same general areas (yes, my dog has OCD). She won't drink out of her water bowl if it is less than 1/3 full. She makes some awfully strange noises. I have had her for a little over a month and I can't imagine my life without her at this point. My whole life has changed to center around her and her needs. I am very proud of my little girl who has recently learned to use a bell to tell me when she really needs to go outside. She did it both last night and today! I am quite the proud Mommy. However, like most Mommys, I have had to learn to let go a little. Today, I took Meredith for her first day at doggy day care. I worked this morning at job #1 and I am actually currently at job #2(out of the four that I have) and I just didn't have the heart to leave her in her crate for such a long day. Thankfully my vet offers a doggy day care for a really good deal and I don't think that I will need to use it very often, but I think today was good for her. It was weird going back to the apartment and getting ready without her stretched out at my bathroom doorway or underfoot when I tried to figure out what to bring for lunch. It was weird going home this afternoon between the two jobs and not seeing her cute little face.

For now, I think I am content with my dog and the rest can wait awhile :)

Wednesdays and life decisions

,Wednesdays are usually horrible days for me. I have class from 9 in the morning till 8 at night, with only two one-hour breaks (which aren't really worth ANYTHING!). Usually during the 10 o'clock hour I sit in the science and math building and do homework that I have procrastinated on doing. Recently during my 2 o'clock hour break, I have been going home to let my sweet dog out and give her a break from her kennel. Luckily my roommate has more time available on Wednesdays than I do and is very nice in that she lets Meredith out to play while she is home so Meredith isn't in her kennel the whole time I am not there. Basically, my brain is going on auto-pilot for 11 hours straight, which can be very exhausting.

I find myself procrastinating a lot lately, and I haven't been able to pin down WHY I am such a horrible procrastinator until this morning. I think that I have been putting things off (more so than usual) lately because I am in the mentality that if I push it off, things wont happen. Now I know that this sounds like a "Duh Hilary, if you don't do something, of course it wont happen!" but I mean in the sense that if I put off figuring my life out, then maybe I will have time to be a kid for just a little bit longer. Growing up is a scary thing to do. I cant believe that in less than 2 months, I will no longer have school to fall back on. Every spring in my life until now, I have always known that after summer is over, it is back to the land of school. My life has been planned and relatively predictable. My life is wide open now. I am supposed to be looking for a job, but the whole job search thing is NOT easy. Let's begin with the current economic state of our country (strike one): EVERYONE is looking for a job. The economy sucks and because the economy sucks, I am going to suffer. Strike two: I have no idea what kind of job I want! Its hard to search for a job if you don't even know the KIND of job that you want! Strike three: location, location, location. I have no idea where I should be looking (coupled with the idea that I don't know what I am looking for, come on! Is this some sort of cruel cosmic joke?). I would kind of like to stay in this area, yet I wont be able to afford staying in this area to search for a job without a job to fund the job search (confused yet?). My family is currently near Beaufort, but really what jobs are available in Carteret County? But then there is a possibility that they are moving to the Louisville KY area. So I have a wide range of possibilities to work with, but I need a narrowing down. I need decisions. I need answers.

So basically, that is what is making my life so complicated right now. I want to be a kid and have no responsibilities, but reality is rearing its ugly head and I am thinking that growing up is in my very near future.

Starting it up again....

This summer while I was in England, I was an avid blogger. (Read all about my English adventure here: Hilary in England) I blogged on almost a daily basis to keep friends and family updated on all of my exciting adventures across the pond. I enjoyed blogging and found it rather cathartic. Sadly, when I came back from England I stopped blogging. Recently I have gotten very addicted to my Aunt's blog, Laura's 2 Little Boys, and decided that it was time to start up again. After all, I am coming into a very exciting and scary time in my life. I am about halfway through my last semester of college, I have no idea what I am going to do with my life (much less what I am going to do come May), I just recently got a beautiful dog that keeps me busy, and I could use a little de-stresser!

While I don't have anything particularly thrilling to post about today, I am very excited to be back in the world of blogging. Today has been a very low-key day in which Meredith (my dog) and I went to the vet, spent TWO WHOLE HOURS at the dog park, and then rested for the remainder of the afternoon.

I am currently at work and putting off doing my homework, which is what I should be doing right now. I always liked the idea of doing homework at work because it is like I am getting paid to do my homework. Somehow today even the prospect of being paid to do my homework isnt making the homework any more appealing. Unfortunately I have been plagued with the worst case of senioritis ever known (I didnt get it in high school, so it makes sense that I am hit brutally hard my last semester of college right?) and I have absolutely no drive to do anything this semester, which isn't really working out all that well for me!

On that note, I will leave my first blog post....
