Feeling Weird.

I'm great at naming these, huh?

I'm feeling weird today. Yesterday, I found out that the mom of a girl I was best friends with in grade school passed away. She's been sort of sick (I think she had emphysema or something like that) as long as I've known her, and it's just really sad that she's gone. I haven't seen her in a few years. I was invited to the funeral, but I don't think I'm going to go. I hate funerals.

I also think I'm getting sick, which is not fun.

Yesterday was my first real day to just chill out all week; my week was so busy, and I worked all weekend. Saturday was my last day at Pillow Pets, which is sort of bittersweet. Thankfully, I won't be so busy anymore, and I'll have more time to do. . .I don't know. Other stuff?

Other stuff like grading papers. Which I'm going to do. Now.

Kayla's Bridals

I can't put these on Facebook, because I am friends with Kayla's fiance, and I know they aren't the best quality here, but I wanted to show them to someone! I am really proud of these, and I can't wait to show them to Kayla!

So, I quit one of my jobs. Yup.

I am no longer an employee at Just For Smiles. Well, as of this Saturday, I'm not. Three jobs was too many, especially with school and sleep and those kinds of things

Not really much else to report. . .

In which Chantel is an insane person.

Currently my life consists of working three jobs, attending school (even if it IS only two classes), and trying to get to bed at a reasonable hour. The bed thing is pretty tough.

Besides trying to remain totally anti-social at school (headphones, people!), I am also determined to continue my streak of awesome grades from last semester. I am taking a general biology class, and an into to visual arts class. I don't think either of them are going to be very hard, because they are both "for non-majors" type classes, so they are designed for people like me, who are no good at science or remembering things.

I still work at Crazy 8, and I T.A. for a professor, helping pass out attendance cards in class, collecting them, and grading student papers, and the Pillow Pets kiosk opened again a couple of weeks ago. So yay! I am rolling in dough! Or I will be. Someday. I am currently saving most of my money because I burned through a bit of my savings doing repairs on my car and things like that. I need to save because I am moving to Logan in January, which I am very excited for. I will be attending their technical writing program. It's one of the best in the country! Very fancy. So you should probably be really impressed.

Also, I just made what I am affectionately calling a Head Injury Hat for Zombie Prom. I made my mom knit me a beanie, and then I knitted a little section of brain and a grody skin flap to go around it, and seved those on to the hat, and then I stitched some blood on, an voila! Head Injury Hat. I am donating it to the silent auction, and I am very anxious to see if anyone buys it. It is for a good cause, after all.

On a more depressing note, SO MANY of my friends are getting married or having babies, and at twenty, I already feel like an old maid. That's one thing I do not enjoy about living in Utah. Everyone is so anxious to get married and stuff so early, it makes me feel so lame. But, you know, none of my married friends can stay up late watching Misfits and fall asleep in their chair. So, I mean, if you think about it, I'm really sort of living the dream.
