Catch up!!

I've been MIA for a while, because I've literally been MIA!

Firstly: for all of October I am wearing a new and interesting outfit for each day and posting picture on my facebook. Sad thing is, sometimes I forget to take my picture :( to penalize myself, I will wear something a bit over the top out in public..with much photo evidence.

On October 2nd, my good friend Mark got married. Mark and I went to Kindergarten together, and his mother taught me Math in 1st grade. He is, the first of all our friends (in our small small group) to get married, and I am really happy for him. The ceremony was great. My only problem with it was: when you are planning the reception, and you do the seating chart: PUT SINGLE PEOPLE AT THE SAME TABLE!

I was at a table full of recently married couples. And not at the same table as my other friends. It was a wee bit awkward. In the way that sitting in silence with the occasional "wow, this is nice" comment.

The very next week My fam and I flew out to Minnesota for my cousins wedding. My cousin is a former NFL player (Vikings, Ravens, Browns) and now works in the medical supply industry. His wife is a nurse, and really...if you looked up a photo for "perfect mid-western couple" it would be them. The wedding was super cute. They're both very Christian, so every other word in the sermon was about Jesus...but at the end of the ceremony, Ryan grabbed a guitar and TOTALLY did the Beatles, "all you need is Love" bit from Love Actually. His wife was so surprised, and they did in fact have trumpeteers in the pews. Very romantic!

The reception was great because you could sit where ever you wanted, and I ended up with the cousins who are closer to my age and that have similar interests. Again this was a wedding with NO SINGLE people (they didn't do the bouquet toss because there were only 2 single women in the age bracket...I was one of them)

I stayed up in Minnesota for an extra week with Sam and Sean, who are amazing. We went all over St. Paul and I was able to apply to about 6 different jobs :)

I really really want to move up there. Like, really want it. I need to move, I'm sick of this area. and my family is really getting on my nerves. And I like MN, and have a bunch of friends up there. So...job hunt!

I got back late Monday night, to of which, my brother picked me up and then promptly got lost on the way home. Sad face.

Yesterday, Wednesday, I had a Doctors appointment that I have been putting off for over a year. I've been having hearing troubles since the spring of my last year in Japan and I finally went to see a hearing specialist here. Good news kids: I'm going deaf!

oh wait...that's not good news :(

And also..way too melodramatic! I'm not going deaf.. yet. I've been diagnosed with Otosclerosis ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Otosclerosis ) I've got bad hearing in one ear, but its not bad enough for surgery or hearing aids, yet. I might wait till I'm 30 or something.

Also, I'm looking for work in MN, and I get an email from my old boss at the Embassy. She wants me back. with a higher position. But....augh. I don't want to live/work in DC!!

then again, it is work, and it is money, and it is temporary. I'm still thinking about it. I might email her with a huge list of questions like "how much money" and "how may hours a week". If it is the same deal as last time (10$, 35 hours a week) I'm going to have to decline. I can make more up here with NO commute. ...but then again, I really really liked working in the office and everything. AUGH!

and that is my life. so far.
