Officially an Adult

This weekend I graduated college! It was such an exciting time for me! I ended up graduating magna cum laude, which was my goal, so I am incredibly happy.

I have filled out over 20 job applications. It has been insane. I have so far only been on one interview, at the Clayton house. If you haven't been there, you need to go. It is an amazingly restored Victorian house in downtown Fort Smith where John Clayton, Judge Parker's prosecutor, lived in the late 1800s.

I do have two more upcoming interviews next week. One is for the Times Record. I would be typing death notices, letters to the editor, and obituaries. Sounds morbid right? But I think I would enjoy it. That sounds odd, but those things are very important to families and I like to help people as much as I can in times of need.

My other interview is at ABF. I was hesitant to apply there, because I think it would be hard for me to get excited about trucking every day.  But, at this point I just need a job.

In other news, I bought a house. It has the potential to be completely adorable. It is on East Denver street in awesome neighborhood. I can't wait to move in! First though, we are doing some hefty remodeling. The people who owned it before used it as a rent house and it has been trashed over the years. At last count there are 6 layers of wallpaper in the kitchen alone. It will definitely be a project.

With graduation, a house, and the job hunt, I officially feel like an adult.


  1. Congrats to you!!! How fun!!

  2. Girl I work at ABF and its a GREAT place to work! Good pay, good benefits, strong Christian leadership, and good people. What job did you apply for here?

  3. Deciding on the correct kitchen countertops will be the excellent approach to beautify your existing cooking and eating region. When you are feeling the desire to do some refurbishing, this may be 1 of the key points to consider considering that you are going to be working with an existing setup.
