Phew! Things have been super crazy in the past few weeks!
Jon has been super busy with school and studying. He just finished the Infectious Disease section and it was longer and more difficult than the others have been, and on top of that he did not enjoy it very much either. Thank goodness that section is over! Now he only has 3 weeks left of his first year of medical school!!! How crazy is that!?!
I have been trying to find a new job. I am going stir crazy being stuck inside and at my computer for 8 hours a day, including Saturdays, and I am not getting paid enough either so I have been trying to find something else. I got an interview yesterday for a front desk position at a chiropractors office. The interview went well. It was group interview with 10 of us total so that was pretty weird and super intimidating, but somehow I pulled it off and about an hour after getting home from the interview I got a call to come in for a second step interview on Thursday. I am a little anxious though because it is not quite 40 hours a week so while I would be making more than I am now, I won't quite be making what I want to be making. So not only do I have to actually get the job but I have to decide if I can make it work. And I am worried because while I am not desperate for a job right now, if I turn down this job, what if I can't find another one? So that is stressing me out.
On top of that there are a bunch of other things going on right now! Jon is trying to decide what he wants to do over the summer. He got a research job so that is super awesome, but it is only a few days a week and he wants to find other ways to make sure we can make enough money to get us through the summer. He is considering working for Pinnacle again and is also considering joining the National Guard that will not only pay us routinely but will also help to pay off school loans when he is done with medical school.
We are getting ready to move into a condo that is closer to school and we are super anxious to move but we can't until our lease is up at the end of July. Jon got a scooter that will help save tons in the cost of gas but the battery has been giving us issues lately.
On a more positive note, I did start my photography class and today will be 3rd class! I am really enjoying so far! It's a super small class, only 5 of us and 3 of them are over 40. But that's okay, I definitely am learning a lot and also feeling pretty good that I do know a lot of the stuff we are talking about!!
Also, my sister is coming to stay with us!! She'll be here around the end of July (the same time we'll be moving) and will be here until the second week of August! I am so excited!! She'll be the first person to visit us since we moved here, a year ago by the time she'll get here! She's the best!
Lady Gaga's Born This Way CD comes out on the 23rd of this month!!!! I can't wait!! She has already released 3 of the songs from it!! Born This Way, Judas, and The Edge of Glory!! She is AMAZING and I hope the CD rocks!! We will definitely get it as soon as it comes out!
So yeah, that is what has been going on. We are both feeling super overwhelmed, but we are doing our best to get through it! We are really homesick and missing our families and all of our dear friends! We love you all so very much!!
