I've gotten a lot done today. After church and lunch, I started going through my stuff. I set out and labeled three boxes of clothes: Leave at Home, Donate, Bring with me. After I finished going through my dresser, closet, and plethora of clothes on my bedroom floor, I started packing. I picked out some clothes i am going to bring with me but I am going to wear the next four weeks. I'll pack them the night before I leave. Then I folded all the leave home clothes and put them back in…


Weird Dream...

I had this dream about check-in day. Apparently when I showed up to check-in, I had forgotten the second form of ID and they wouldn't allow me to work. I got really upset in the dream...Not sure why I didn't just call my parents to fax something over in the dream. lol

I"m pretty excited about going back to Montana and Wyoming. The last time I was there was back in 2009 when I was sixteen years old. I went as a tourists with my best friend and her family. We rented a mini-van and spent ten days driving around…


Starting Out

Posted on February 28, 2013 at 11:12am 0 Comments

I applied to Yellowstone in a haste to get a job. Back in December 2012, I was desperate for a job so I applied to any job I qualified for. A few days later, I got offered a job at a dog daycare and forgot about the Yellowstone job completely. Then, in late February, a packet arrived in the mail congratulating me on getting the job at Yellowstone. Despite my parent's attempts to get me to stay here in Virginia, I have decided to go. My paperwork is in the mail, my plane tickets are booked,…
