Long time no see!

Hello friends, Its been quite a while since I've been around. So much has happened! First things first, I'm now a college graduate! I graduated on May 8, 2010 and hit the ground running with big plans, a thriving for life only known by a college graduate, and 2 brand new puppies! Lets just say, life after school was nothing like I expected. It's lonely, really really unbelievably lonely. I moved into my uncle's farm house in the middle of no where Central Illinois. My job, in addition to working at the library, was to care for the horses in exchange for a rent payment. Not a bad deal, right? It wasn't really too bad but the fact that I was living alone in the middle of the country was enough to overshadow the whole arrangement.

Who would have thought it was so difficult to meet friends outside of school? And if you knew, why in the heck didn't you tell me!? I will say that I was loving the lib more and more everyday! Because of my part-time job at the lib, I've been inspired to a future as a children's librarian! Such a fantastic occupation. I'll get into that more soon.

My roommate moved in with me in October. It was so nice to have a companion to eat dinner with and laugh with and watch Jimmy Fallon with.  Unfortunately, the farm hasn't been a good fit for her and she is heading back home to Michigan and then off to Australia. Needless to say, I'm not looking forward to this summer once again. :(

Despite many set backs, I'm pressing onward with more big plans, thriving for life, and yes, 2 puppy dogs. I'm looking forward to moving back to Kentucky for Grad School in Library Sciences, hopefully a great job, and definitely some friends.
