July - week 3 & 4

Well, I missed a week, but it was a pretty crazy week.

I went to the Dallas Cowboy's training camp that's held in Oxnard every year, and I was so tired when I got back Sunday night that I forgot to write :P

And work has been pretty hectic--- gotta love making money!  I'll spare you guys the boring details.

Yesterday Six Flags and Hurricane Harbor had a military appreciation day and I got to go to both parks for $40, so that was pretty swell.  I'm scared of rollercoasters, but I always try to make myself ride them.  I don't know why... Maybe this is a small attempt at conquering my fears?

July - week 2

So, you know how I was complaining about how hard it was to make friends? Well, I went out and made some friends.  And you know what, I OWN my social awkwardness. I got to explore San Luis Obispo, which is a town about 45 minutes away from me.  They have a farmer's market every Thursday, which we were told was very awesome---- So of course I had to check it out.

I went with the people in my FTAC class and bought a bunch of strawberries and other delicious foods. I'm definitely going to go back with my boyfriend next week.  Especially since they had live jazz and Thai food.  I'm all about that.

But yeah.  That was pretty much the highlight of my week.  The military LOVES to powerpoint their troops into oblivion, but I didn't think my FTAC class was too bad.  Now that it's over I'm going to be returning back to my work grind.

I didn't realize it, but my 1 month anniversary with my boyfriend was this weekend and he surprised me with flowers and chocolate.  It was a pleasant surprise because none of my other boyfriends ever made a big deal out of month-aversaries before... I feel really spoiled.

Earlier today we made tye-dye shirts, which are currently in the washer... He got all excited and giddy when we were making them because he's never really done artsy things before.  It was really adorable.  Hopefully I'll remember to put them in the dryer tonight so that they'll be done in the morning :P

Anyway, here's hoping that next week is even more fun!

July - week 1

Since I've apparently become very awful at blogging on a consistent basis, I've decided to slowly ease myself back into the blogging world by taking things week by week.  Hence, the title!

This week, aside from it containing the fourth of July (I'll spare you all my pictures of fireworks), was filled with many tiny awesome things.  I enjoyed feasting on funnel cake twice, I bought way too many dresses online from Forever 21--- I had to stop myself from buying 3 more today, and I lounged around and got to be lazy because I didn't have to go to work on Thursday or Friday.

In fact, when I'm not at work, I can usually be found lounging around lazily.  There's not much to do on base, and I have, self admittedly, become that girl.  You know, the one that moves to a new place, finds a new boyfriend and spends all of her time hanging out with said boyfriend because it's alarmingly hard to make new friends in the dorms.

The environment here is way more closed off.  I've met a few people here and there, but aside from that, I'm not really friends with anyone.  I don't have any friends to talk to or hang out with, aside from the people that I work with, which sounds really lame.  But of course, I've only been here now for a little over a month, so I should give myself time to make friends, right?  At tech school it was SUPER easy to make friends.  All you had to do was say hello to someone and start a conversation.  Here, everyone is so jaded.  They've been here for so long that they've already established who they want to be friends with and spend their time with.  They know all the cool places to hang out, all the little novelty places in the area, all of which are now rendered boring and lackluster.

Not having a large pool of friends is something that I will have to get used to for now.  And I don't really mind hanging out with my boyfriend all the time.  He's become my best friend because I literally have no one to talk about anything with.

Next week I'm going to go horseback riding (yay!) and also start FTAC--- which is pretty much a week of powerpoints, and maybe talk to my supervisor about taking leave some time in August.  I've been debating whether or not I want to go back to Texas before the holidays--- each time I change my mind... :/

Plane tickets are expensive, I REALLY miss my baby brother, I don't know if I should visit home right now... Decisions, decisions... I mean, I have more than enough money right now to make the trip, but I just don't know...

We'll see.
