7 quick lists

So the my job is kicking my butt but I'm coming to appreciate it so not all is lost... except some sleep.

1. I almost made it two weeks at my new job without being called "cute". I've accepted it and am now trying to see if that word will follow me all my life. I'm not mad about it though.

2. My boss reminds me of Mr. Incredible. I'm really looking forward to this summer because he's super nice, talented, and funny. He also calls me Dennis, which I find hilarious. (He calls me that because my e-mail is - Alltech is where I'm working haha)

3. Last week, us interns had to set-up a monthly event Alltech puts on called "News n Brews". It's at our brewery and is just an education thing about the upcoming World
Equestrian Games with free food and beer. Well, my fellow co-worker was in charge of this one and had forgotten her khakis in her dryer but needed them because a) that was our attire for the night and b) the prez of the company was suppose to come. She couldn't leave the brewery because her boss was about to show up so she asked if I would drive to her house and get them out of the dryer. I was a little nervous because I didn't know Lexington that well and the girl was unsure of her address because she had just moved to her house. (how this happens, I don't know... I'll blame it on the stress she was under) She told me the street though and said it was the only duplex on her road that had a "for sale" sign in the yard. "Oh and t
here isn't really anything in my house because I'm still moving in so don't think you're in the wrong house," she told me. I got there despite the rush hour traffic and pulled around back to make sure I was going in the right door. The door was surprisingly unlocked even though she had given me a key. "Geez, there really is nothing in this house. Okay down the stairs and the laundry room should be in the basement." There were 4 doors. So I started opening all of them. They revealed a bathroom , 2 closets, and a garage with a jeep in it. I felt really weird about being in someone else's house that didn't even have stuff in it. So I decided to call another intern who had been to the before mentioned intern's house to see what I was missing since there was obviously no laundry room in the basement. The other intern started describing stuff in the house that simply wasn't there. " Do you see the laundry room as soon as you come down the stairs?"
"Do you see the black dining room set downstairs?"
" Did you pull into a crescent shaped driveway?"
"No. I think I'm in the wrong house. I'm going to get out before I get in trouble."
By this point, I heard sirens and was freaking out. Who called the cops? Do they think I'm trying to steal something? The door was unlocked. There isn't even anything to steal. Heart. is. clogging. up. my. throat.
Got outside. No cops insight. Got to get in my car and get out of this place as soon as possible.
I pulled out of the driveway and looked up the street and lo' and behold there was another duplex with a "for sale" sign right in the yard and it matched the description of the helpful intern still on the phone. Good one co-w0rker.

4. There are some fun things to do around Lexington, which is exciting since
my friends and I are here. all. summer. long.
Open mike at some local coffee shops- Monday and Thursday nights
$1 dollar burgers Tuesday nights at a local restaurant
May is bike month so there are free concerts downtown and biking events
June 5th there is swing dancing on Main street in Lexington with a big band. I'm super excited. How fun is that? They even have lessons before the actually event.

5. My church is going to build a community garden and give the fresh produce away to the needy. I'm excited to get more involved with my church and community.

6. For some reason, I'm obsessed with baby animals right now especially baby horses and puppies. I just want to hold, pet, and take pictures of them and then give them back. I don't want to keep them, just hang out with them occasionally.

okay so this picture is huge and I can't delete it for some reason but it's cute right?
7. Tomorrow is Friday. That's all I have to say ;)

Dear real world,
I do not like you.
I do not want to get up at 6:30 in the morning, five days a week and then work till 5.
I don't want to listen to the radio morning shows and the afternoon ones too. I think radio DJ's are annoying and narcissistic.
I don't want to wear businessy clothes everyday and have access passes to get into my job.
I don't want to have the old phone extension of someone who just left the company.
And I especially don't want to get up and do it all over again.
All I can say is at least you pay me, real world.
See ya tomorrow.

Okay seriously, I should be productive with my life during finals week but I found this new photographer Clayton Austin. This guy is unreal (I literally think he doesn't exist because not only are his photos ridiculously good, his blogs/bios on his website cannot be written by a man. They sound too.... well, perfect) . If I had a lot of money, he would fur-hur sure get him to do my engagement, wedding, family, and whatever other photos I ever wanted. The guy is talented. His photos make you want to be in love. They're so whimsical and dream-like. I. love. them.
I mean, check these out.

Really? Okay I guess I'll go to bed since I have to be somewhere in the morning. But they're so inspiring and make me want to take pictures. So awesome.
