Any life updates?

Post by joselin4life on Fri Aug 22, 2014 10:41 pm

I once thought of us as one big yet small "family". Besides some of our personal bonds and connections, we knew all of each others life updates from weddings to vacations to pregnancies to even school related stuff. I feel like I know nothing going on in anyones lives who still get on! Does anyone have any life updates? It could be anything to nothing.

Not a whole lot going on here. It's been a year since I moved 2 hours away from my hometown. Absolutely love the area I'm in, I could see myself growing old here. Started a new job in January. I love it, but I'm not making nearly enough money for the work I'm doing, and being in the human services field, significant raises, if any, are not going to happen. So I'm researching colleges in the area, I hope to go back in the fall of next year to build on my psychology degree. My boyfriend and I are about to celebrate 7 years together in October. He just started a new job last week after being unemployed for almost a year. I can't say how thrilled I am. Although this is an awesome area to live in, finding a job without a college degree here is a massive pain in the ass. One of the perks of his job is that he gets all kinds of discounts in the area, including at a wedding store- He has mentioned this a couple times. Makes me smile. Smile

Well. I finished my NGO training course together with the internship and everything. I just have one task left and then in October me and the team will have to present it at this conference in front of several hundred people which I am guessing might be a slightly uncomfortable experience

In two weeks we are doing a family vacation to celebrate my parents anniversary. We will be taking a cruise through North Sea which will be kind of awesome

Still no girlfriend but the girl I used to have an enormous crush on is coming tomorrow and we will likely hang out together for almost two whole days which will probably be a mixture of really awesome and really sucky

I went to college for a semester and ended up leaving. Since then I have been working as a freelance writer with childcare jobs. I was just visiting family in Greece for 6 weeks and I am actually leaving again next week to go back. I will be there for 4 months this time. When I get back from Greece, I plan on returning to university at a different school and studying human services (psychology, social work and sociology) and working in that field.

I haven't been up to much. My junior year of college started today, which is insane. As of today, I've had my job (nanny) for a year and there will be a new baby girl soon. And I've been fully living here in Ohio for a year. That's about it, my life isn't too terribly exciting.

Well, I started work last Monday, that seems to be going well! I like it, I get out of town on a regular basis, and I get money, which is awesome.

Bad news, though... I got in a really bad car wreck on Friday after mom and Nicole picked me up from Liz's after work. We were stopped at a red light, suddenly a car crashed into us from behind and we ended up going into the car in front of us, so we were in the middle of a car sandwich. I went to the hospital the following day, no fractures or broken bones, but spasms in my neck and upper back and a lot of inflammation. I'm on a few meds that make me loopy and tired, but at least everyone ended up okay. I can't really say the same for mom's car.

Go straight through until you get your masters degree in whichever major you chose in this field, I just learned that one the hard way. Unless you don't like money, then just a 2 year degree will do.

Greece, huh? Super jealous. I'd like to travel to Europe someday. Switzerland is on my bucket list.

How do you like Ohio? I know someone who just bought a house there, three bedroom, two car garage, and her mortgage is a lot less than what I'm paying to rent my tiny two bedroom apartment. I'm living in the wrong state haha :p

Oh no! I hope you feel better soon. I'm always so paranoid about cars around me, nobody pays attention to what they're doing. "Heeelllloooo, you're driving a 3000+ pound piece of metal, head out of ass, pleaseee."

Well it turned out pretty good. I spent the whole day with the girl which was rather wonderful even if there is no chance of romance

I am also just a few days away from the trip. It turns out that they spelled my name wrong on the ticket but they said they can fix it and it shouldn't be a problem Smile

Hey Greece? That's cool. I live right next door to Greece. If you got into any trouble ring me. Also while you are around here you might want to check out European universities. Quite a few of them offer masters in Englishes and chances are big that even if you are non EU citizien it will still be quite likely a lot cheaper then in the US. And even more so for a bachelors degree

Travel ling is awesome indeed. If I might make a few suggestions which I learned from a few friends. In the USA you have these credit card options where you can get free airmiles every time you make any sort of purchase. Try signing up for one of these . You can win enough for your roundtrip to Europe .
Also if you decide to travel while you are studying in the university make sure you get one of those student cards like ISIC. There are huge discounts for students around her in Europe. In some countries things like trains can be 50% cheaper for students and there also hotels,resturants and so on. You might also try one of those volunteer exhcange services . They can often pay you all the travel expenses and let you explore Smile

Thanks, guys. Smile Other than having to go to the chiropractor at least 3 days a week because my spine is all out of line because of whiplash and having moderate to severe headaches 80% of the time, I'm fine. Hopefully I will start getting better soon! It's been long enough...

Haha it's not too bad! Last winter was pretty brutal, but coming from Virginia, that's expected. Otherwise I like it. My city is kind of a shithole lol but parts are nice. You saw my FB status yesterday about the snake dude, there are some weird people here but I do enjoy it. And housing here is a LOT cheaper than many places. My current apartment is probably overpriced and it's only $400 a month ($800 total between me and my roommate).

Not much, really. Just working full time at a job that I absolutely love! I am a chiropractic assistant and it is the most amazing job! I am also keeping busy with all three kiddos and going to school for my bachelor's degree. So I am staying pretty busy.

Really awesome. I was on this cruise in North Sea and I visited Germany, France, Belgium, Englang and Amsterdam and it was really really cool. Then when I was done I took a bus(they are like super cheap over there. I went from Hamburg to Berlin for just like 12$) and went to Berlin as well

I highly reccomend it. It was an awesome experience

Funny coincidence... my cousin went to Germany for Oktoberfest with her family not long ago, they were in Europe for like 2 weeks, they also went to France and Belgium. Of course, I stayed at their house watching their dog and having my own California Oktoberfest with friends at their house. :p

One of my old classmates is stationed in Switzerland and the pictures he has been posting on Facebook are amazing.... I want to see a castle. He was actually just in Germany for Oktoberfest.

Castles are amazing indeed. I actually won a free cruise (I love my travel agency Smile ) and I just came back from it hence why I wasn't here in the last few weeks. And it was awesome. I got to see the Malta which has this huge amazing fortress wall and the Palace of Grand Master in Rhodes and it was amazing. I also went to Bergamo and the entire old city there is like travelling back in the middle ages. It's awesome

Hey you guys. I know I only pop in once a year and you guys forget about me, but just want to let you know I'm still alive! Isn't it weird that we all met on a board about a terrible show that most of us didn't watch past season 1?

Life for me is much the same as it has been. I'm still single and still in school, 3rd year of my physics degree. I moved out of new orleans after high school but I'm still in LA. I'm itching to graduate and go further, get out of the south. Definitely want to do post grad somewhere far from here.

And yeah. Frankly I can't believe it myself. I didn't even watch the secret life I was visiting the forum just to troll the extreme pro lifers. Good on Unit for getting us here and keeping us together for so long. I hope he gets his internet back soon

Hope you graduate soon Smile And don't forget Europe is always an option for your post grad Wink

Wise choice. On the bright side it's full of various projects and international workshops so even if you don't manage to study here you can probably visit easily enough through one of these programs Smile
