I think it’s been a little over (or almost) a year since I last posted on my blog? Man, oh man… Things have been great. Joseph and I are still together, we even have our own Studio apartment in Long Island, NY!
New York, wow. It’s been.. crazy! We came up here a little after Hurricane Sandy to help with the relief effort. Joseph has a pretty nice job, he started as a Laborer and now he’s a Fire/Water/Mold/Lead Technician. I was a laborer for a little while with him, until I became pretty sick because of the mold (of course, I’m allergic to it…). From there I worked at a Ace Hardware as a Hardware associate. That was fun! I made keys, got to fiddle around gadgets, odds and ends. Made a few acquaintances, but nothing really solid. From there I went to a super shitty company called Petland Discounts, where I made my first real friend, gained a lot of work/retail experience and experience how shitty and miserable people could really be; all the while being paid 7.50$/hr! I was ‘laid off’ then let go the next day. They lost a valuable employee and a great manager in the process. I’m almost certain that store is going to hell now that we’re gone lol. But whatever, I don’t care X3. I started my new job at PetCo today (9$/hr), did 4 hours of training today, “learning” 4 hours worth of stuff I already knew.. lol.. Tomorrow is the end of my training and hopefully the real start of my PetCo job.
Guess who’s going back to school. Huh? Who? Me? .. That’s right, me! Starting in January, I’ll be back in college… and in 2 years? Guess who’ll be a CERTIFIED and AVMA recognized Veterinary Technician? Yep, me again! It’s online school so I’ll (hopefully) be able to balance everything out. Ahh! I’m excited. ^-^
So, I have 3 dogs now.
We have Coco, who’s a 12 y/o Chow/Golden mix. He’s our old man. He still has a lot of spunk. He’s ALWAYS hungry and is ALWAYS wanting affection. I swear, this dog lives off of being pet. As long as someone pets him, he’ll be alive for a while to come. c:
This is my Teemo-baby! He’s a 5 y/o blue merle Chihuahua mix (most likely closer to a Chiwinnie). He’s my little Mama’s boy. My image just isn’t complete without him peeking out behind my heels. He’s very skittish and anxious, but we’re slowly working on it. Almost weekly dog park visits slowly open him up more and more. Maybe his new brother will help, too!
I don’t have a very good photo of him just yet, but he’s a little bit smaller than Coco. He’s a 2 y/o Lab/Terrier mix. his head is soooooo small compared to his body it’s cute!! He’s full of energy and love. We adopted him from my NY Best Friend because her grandfather passed away. It was originally his owner was my friend’s grandfather.. No one in the family could take him for one reason or another. They were hoping a close family-friend could take him in but their dogs just didn’t get along. Thus, he’s now with us! We’re in love… <3
WELL I’d post more but it’s time for bed. ^-^ Might see me around more often. Mayhaps!
