    Uh, you guys. I'm debating whether or not to go reddish for the winter months and had talked myself out of it for the most part again. Now I'm thinking about rethinking that. Lol.

    Doooo ittt! But not from a box. You can mess it up pretty easy from a box. If you go to Sallys, you can get the dye and developer seperate. You just mix equal parts and put it in your hair. I always found red box dyes progress in color. Like, the longer you leave it on, even a 5 minute difference, can make it go super dark. So I suggest get a color from Sallys to prevent that!

    In other good news....

    I just ironed Jin's service jacket. And I didn't kill it! :rofl1:

    Making a policy that whenever I post something in the venting thread I also have to post something here.

    I submitted an application to a local dog walking company and they contacted me this morning highly interested. I doubt I'll make bank but I'm not making bank where I am either, nor was I doing so as the radio station. It might open opportunities for me to explore doing more dog training or something else too. Just exploring options. This whole fiasco has made me slightly determined to get a job doing what I want rather than "just a job," because Lord knows "just a job" isn't working out so well. That involves either working in design or working with animals. I just need to find a way to get it done. Maybe just have a little faith that things will work themselves out if I work at it enough.

    My favorite uncle *yeah I know don't pick faves XD* has been here all weekend!

    I usually only get to see him once or twice a year. This is the second time I have seen him AND he's coming back for Thanksgiving this year :D

    I'm a dog walker and let me say.. I love it :) It gets me out, I get to work with dogs, exercise, I work around other dog crazy people.. It's the best job I've ever had! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.. and like you said, it's a great segway into other "dog jobs"..our current in-store dog trainer and groomer both started as walkers!

    I really hope it works for you!

    My friend just asked me to be there for the birth (home birth) of her baby so she and her daughter have their friends there <3.

    I feel so special.

    We're almost done building a full sized dog walk at work. My boss is painting it/texturizing it today, and when it dries it'll be done!

    I CAN'T WAIT TO USE IT.

    I got my school schedule for next semester.
    4 marketing classes, 4 days a week, 2 hours a day. LOOOVE it. Just like this semester but I only have 3 classes right now.

    Also, baby fever is getting worse. Don't know if that should be in this thread or the venting thread LOL

    And one last thing... I might be an aunt again! *Best friend calls me her kids aunt and her little boy calls me Aunt Coco <<< SO CUTE! Cause he can't say Aunt Kotah or Aunt Dakotah. I cannot wait until her little girl starts talking more!

    Got out of that evil calculus class..turns out, I was placed in there due to a clerical error! It wasn't necessary for my major and was 2 levels above the math I SHOULD'VE been taking.

    So good news is, I'm not nearly as dumb as I thought! lol

    It just feels like this huge awesome weight off my shoulders :) now I can focus on my other classes, which I'm already doing pretty well in

    and it looks like I'll be making the deans list :D yay!

    We're going over New Years this year, but to the mountains in North Georgia. Florida to Ontario would be quite the drive!

    DH called me awesome. Or wonderful. Or something like that. One of them. That was pretty cool. He's not big on that sort of thing.

    I'm also having tons of fun shopping for my Secret Santa! I always get bummed out searching for Zander because he is SO picky about the things he likes. So shopping for completely new dog/s is fun stuff!

    Speaking of Zander, he's being oddly good today. Quiet, sleepy, cuddly. I'd let him on the bed if Jin wasn't coming home today and I had time to wash the comforter.
