Yesterday was beyond scary.
As a lot of you know, my boyfriend goes to Northern Illinois.
I was sooo worried about him and all the rest of my friends. Thank God Andy was safe and as were my friends.
Though one of my good friends was in the classroom in which the shooting happened. She saw it all... I can't even imagine how she feels. This is all so crazy, it hit too close to home.
I drove to NIU today and picked up Andy to bring him home. I feel better that he is here and safe.

I want to make this year a good one, since last year was garbage.

So far, so good.

I'm getting the fuck out January 31st and flying out to Boston for a week.
Matt is picking me up at the airport and I'm so excited.
This time I will be in Boston without a drunken slutbag.
Instead of staring at a bottle of OT the whole time, I'll actually see sights.
I can't wait to see Matt and Scoff again.
Plus Matt is my early Valentine.

Before that I'm going to St. Louis to see Mike and ETID with Bethany.

Before that I have my birthday party, in which I will make up for my shitty 21st birthday.

The trash is out of my life so its time to move forward.
I learned so much last year and I'm moving on.

Its time to get the hell out of here. [Aug. 21st, 2007|08:13 pm]
So I have a really promising job opprotunity in Bremerton, Washington... right by Seattle.
I'm super stoked.
Number one... I will be a lot closer to my boyfriend because he'll be in Spokane. It should be an easy 5 hour drive. Andddd when he is not on tour, he'll be with me in Bremerton.
Hopefully I get this job... the funeral director in charge seems awesome and I just really need out of the midwest.
25 days until Mike comes out to spend like 2 weeks with me!!

New York trip number two.

Last Thursday I went to New York again.
This time I drove all by myself.
The drive there was pure hell.
Just trying to get out of Chicago put me back like 2 hours.
It was down pouring, I fish-tailed and pretty much almost ate it.
It rained the whole way through Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York.
Friday, Colin and I went around to all the funeral homes in Auburn.
I had a short interview at one of them, it went good.
I think I could have the job, but I don't think I want it.
Friday night Rachael, Colin, Jason and I went to see 300.
That movie was beat. No matter what any of you say.
Afterwards we got some beer and played circle of death.
Somehow I got drunk off of like 2 and a half beers.....
because of this we forgot about all of the beers we left in the freezer. (picture below)
Saturday consisted of a sweet gold chain from Colin and Jason, dinner, and James Bond movies.
Now I'm home again. I'm sick. Its lame.
I dunno when I will be in New York again. Hopefully sometime soon, I still have more funeral homes to visit. Plus, now I have a potential roommate in Rachael! I love her.
Anyways here are two pictures. One of the beer and two of my little friend that hung outside my window today.

ps. I raised my first femoral artery last week.

Here is an update on my life.

I started going to the Cook County Morgue this week. I'm not quite sure how I feel about it yet. When I entered the morgue I was siked, I was following Mr. Kowaski like a lost puppy. I was blown away with the amount of bodies in the cooler, there were over 240! Oh man, and the smell... I'm sure you can imagine the smell of 240 decomposing bodies. Not so sweet. When Mr. Kowaski was embalming, I was busy trying not to pass out because of the heat in the morgue. It was 80 plus degrees and I was covered from head to toe in personal protective equipment. I just tried to take it all in I suppose. I wasn't too hands on, but I was okay with it. I will have to be next week though, we will then all get our own primary assignments. I'll either be aspirating, raising an artery, or doing the features. Needless to say, I was quite happy to be out of the morgue. It took forever to get home because the Dan Ryan blows right now because of construction. Brad, Kate, Rachel, Chelsea and I were stuck in the Chicago ghetto and we are pretty sure we heard gun shots. This weekend I'm going back to Clinton to do some embalming practice. It has been a while, so hopefully we get a body while I'm home.

Next thing to update. I'm going back to New York next Thursday. Everyone is asking me why and telling me that I'm retarded for driving all the way out there... but I don't give a care. This is my future, so you can all suck it. Anyways, I'm working on my resume this week. Then once I get to New York I'm just gonna drive around and stop by all the funeral homes I can and hopefully land an apprenticeship. I don't feel like I need to justify why I want to go to New York but I guess I will try. New York feels just enough like home to me so that I feel comfortable and just different enough for a slight feeling of change. I'm young and this is the time for me to travel and experience new things. What I figure is that I was thinking about moving to Alaska so if I decide on New York everyone should be happy because then atleast people can visit me. Unless you wanted to spend 3 grand to fly to Juneau. I'm excited to get back to playing Wii all day and seeing Colin, Jason, Jeff and Shaun. Plus we have an Arrested Development party planned... which can only make for a good night. I'm also kinda excited for my 11 hour drive, whether I'm by myself or with wifey it will be nice. I'll have time to think. I will be leaving at like 4 am though so I beat all the Dan Ryan bullshit construction and I like driving early in the morning anyways. The scenery will be nice hopefully, I'm basically driving along the Great Lakes the whole way.

Nexttttt. I'm excited to go home tomorrow. I miss my family and my friends back home. Tomorrow once I get back to Iowa, Sarah, Andrew and I will be going to Davenport to see Amanda. She had her baby today and Sarah is too scared to drive herself. Plus tomorrow is a new Grey's Anatomy! Yes! Friday night I'm gonna try to get my parents to go out drinking with me. I'm sure it won't be too hard to convince them. I may also head to the Valley. I guess Abby and everyone got the cabin because Josh is moving back to Seattle. I should probably stop by and say goodbye to him. Jamie, I may kidnap you for the drive, fyi. Andy gets home from Florida on Saturday, I'm sure I will be in Dekalb to welcome him and all the boys home. Then back to Chicago... where I do not want to be. I'm sick of Chicago, I don't want to go to morgue on Thursday, etc. I could bitch forever... but I won't... for once. To sum it all up. I'm stressed.
I'm confronting the fact its time to grow up. This September I graduate and I will finally be a licensed funeral director. I will reach the point of adulthood and surviving by myself. I feel up for the challenge but I'm also freaked out. Add on major pms and you get a complete Stephany wreck. I just need to be home with my mommy, daddy, Sarah, my kitties and my pseudo brother Andrew. I haven't been at home as much as I'd like to be because I've been in New York, Boston, or just too busy here in Chicago.
Oh and finals went well. I'm still at A status and representing Pi Sigma Eta... vice president and all.
Okay, I think I'm done venting now.

I'm leaving for Boston and Syracuse tomorrow.

I'm counting on it being the best week of my life.

As I look back to last year.... it was the worst week of my life.

Tomorrow will mark one year since Phelan died in a car accident.

I think about how infinitely awful I felt last February 24th,
One year brings so much difference.

Nonetheless, I think of Phelan everyday. I honestly do.
I miss her, I love her, I wish she was just STILL HERE.
