everything on everything
I got a new speech job. In Waco. I already got the apartment, met my new pts and the rest of the staff I'll be working with. And did I mention....I'm moving out there on my own? And the position is full time?!

I'm so excited and so happy! God has truly blessed me and I can't thank all the opportunities I've been given that have built me up to take on this new position. I'll be treating pts in there homes (home health instead of clinic). But I'll be seeing more kiddos then my other job. At Sante, it was one pt every hour, now I'll be seeing different kiddos every half-hour, so I'm making more an hour than I did before.

It helps that the town is super small. I barely waste any gas at all. And my apartment is gorgeous! And right by the lake. I'm going to get a bike and bike down their each day. :3

I'm super, super happy! And blessed! But it kinda makes me sad that a lot of my friends were very judgmental of my home situation. My mom and I do not always get along, but it isn't that easy to just get out when you have very little financial options. And some even pressured me saying, "Nicole, you're 25, you need to move out." And this came from someone who was much older than I was who didn't move out of their family's home until way older than I was. So I don't like the hypocrisy of it....or anyone putting their own judgments and opinions on my situation. It's not like I wanted to stay with my family a whole year after I graduated college, but getting licensed takes time and getting internships and entry-level experience takes time. It really hurt my feelings and I had some self-esteem issues because of it.

My parents didn't care if I stayed with them until I could transition so why should they care? I really don't know...but I won't have to worry about them because I am moving! Lol I am getting the keys next Friday and I am so excited! Lol :)

No one can dampen my happiness! No one! All negative people, please stay away, I have no time for you! Lol

Other than that, the process of getting everything taken care of has been really stressful. I am having some allergic reactions/breakouts again. And I hope my doctor and I can figure out why it's happening. It happened like 2-3 years ago and I'm a little scared that It'll keep escalating.

I still want the tour! ;). And who cares what others think. In this economy and if your parents are okay with it, it is smarter in many ways to live at home until you can afford your own place. Whether renting or owning is expensive! Don't jump the gun right away because usually those people come back home disappointed and with less money LOL.

I'll will take pictures of the whole place soon! ;) you'll see everything. Lol I appreciate your support. You've been such a great friend and I really appreciate everything you've done and helped me with.

That's the way to go! :D I'm happy to hear you don't let anyone rain on your parade. Hope everything works out for you (or has already). Are you settled now in the new place? (:
By the way, could you maybe give me your new postal address? I'd like to send you a little something for Christmas. Or will you be with your family during the holidays?

Yes, I'm settled in to my apartment and job now! :) the next time you're on Skype, I'll give you a tour! My apartment is so cute! ;-;

and yes, here is my address:
4500 Lakeshore Dr. Apt #5
Waco, Texas 76710

I feel really cool that I have my own carport and everything. Haha! And yes, my old address is still where my family lives. It probably would be best to send it there just in case. I know I'll be there for Christmas and New Years.

That's great to hear! :D And I'd totally love to see your place, I'm sure it has a lot of pink stuff in it (am I right)? ;D
And thanks for giving me your new address, I suppose I better send it to the old one, though. ^^

Haha. Yes, I have pink stuff all over my bedroom and bathroom. My kitchen, study, dinning room, and living room are far more grown up. Lol but yes, I got your package. Thanks for sending it to my parent's house. I'm always nervous about accepting packages at my apartment because I am not sure if my neighbors will leave it be or not. My mailbox is very small so they often leave packages under the front mat.

I've got your package ready to ship out, but I wasn't sure what address you would want me to send it out too. Sorry it's coming to you so late. :(

This month has been crazy! I can't believe how busy everything has been. Not just holiday stuff, but I've had to deal with lots of paperwork, etc as well. And speaking of paperwork, I have to write up monthly summaries for all my patients. Lol I wanna just cry...lol XD I'm thinking of deleting my Lj...I just don't have time for it anymore.

can you message me the address that you want it sent to? Thanks!

Hey Nicole! :D Wishing you a wonderful birthday and a fantastic new year of your life, full of joy and interesting experiences. I hope you've been doing well and that all of your dreams and ambitions come true. (: Hopefully you'll have a great birthday! *throws confetti*
