Sometimes, life tests your lemonade making abilities.

Life very rarely goes the way you want it to. Which, for a person like me is excruciatingly frustrating. I'm the kind of person who LOVES to plan. LOVE LOVE LOVES to plan. I have a plan for exactly how things will go, when changes will be made, and exactly what those changes will be.

Which, upon internal reflection, is a truly silly, and not at all useful trait to have.

For those of you who are unaware, I have moved myself back to Ohio.

After a brief spat, and a long talk, it was decided that it was best that I come home to Ohio and figure out my professional life before things got too serious in Augusta. So, here I am. I currently live with my parents, in my old room. I came back with a dog, a hedgehog, a cat and a ferret.

Life is a little crazy here, mostly because of the new dog, and because I'm not used to all the commotion at all hours of the day (and sometimes night), but we're all adjusting.

I interviewed today (promisingly) for a position as a full time sales associate, reptile and aquatics specialist and dog trainer with Petco! I'm very excited for that opportunity.

As far as the rest of my plan goes, I hope to be going back to school on a VERY part-time basis in the Winter. Take a few classes that are a good mix of fun, and relevant, do that for a year and a halfish, earn up some moneyz, and then transfer down to main campus. The plan is now, to study animal science, and "grow up" to be a Zoo Keeper.

That's the plan, thus far, who knows what will happen in two months, 6 months, 1 year, 2 years, 5 years... I certainly didn't expect the events of the last two years to happen, every 3 months or so I got a new surprise!

But life exists, sometimes, to do nothing except send you buckets and buckets and buckets of lemons to see just what you'll do with them.

Little does life know, my lemonade will sell faster if it also sends me Oranges, Ugli fruit, basil and ginger...
