So, I forgot to mention. I interviewed for another job on Friday.

It would be as a graduate assistant. I am not sure what I would be doing there are a few grants that I could be working with. The assistantship would be one or two years long. I think the professor wants me because of my analytical and horticulture background. He mentioned green roofs and installations. I am really excited. I hope I get it! He also mentioned that I would be writing papers and articles in magazines to be published if I get it.

We shall see what happens.

New Car!

I finally got it! No more Old Gray Hair! I got a new 2009 Tacoma. I love it. It feels so good after driving the Corolla for 8 years.

Now I just have to get a better bike. My little girl bike isn't good for long trips or offroading.

No More

So, IT girl is no longer. She actually worked with me until today. She was let go from her job. Now she will be the jobless wonder. She is going through a lot right now, so if you can keep her in your prayers that would be great.

Her mom actually has stomach and breast cancer in both breasts.

Please prayer for her to have the strength to make it through the next few weeks, until she gets another job. She seems to be OK, but I think once it hits her she won't be.

So, it was a crazy weekend. IT girl and I did well. I guess we are seeing each other now? I am not sure how it is going to work out. She lives in a different state. Actually, that is all she talked about was her city and how she hated it, but that is all she talked about. I am sure you can guess that she is from Texas. She compared everything we did to a place or something in Texas. It got old fast. So, I would change the subject.

We went out with my friends one night and one of my really good friends is getting married to a guy from Texas. He is moving up here to be with her. They talked about Texas the entire time, which was fine, because I had a lot of other friends there, and it distracted her from talking to me about Texas.

I don't mean to complain about Texas, but for someone who says they don't like living there, that is 90% of what she talked about all weekend. I am not saying that I didn't have a good time with IT girl. I just wish that she would talk about other things 85% of the time.

Other than that, I might have a new car on Friday. I am doing the Obama $4,500 trade in deal. I convinced my dad to trade me his old beat up truck for my broke down Corolla. I am so excited to get the truck. Now I just have to change my budget to afford the payments for the next few years.

Oh yeah, does anybody know of a job? I really want a new job. I am tired of doing Accounting part time during school. It is sucking the life out of me. I have a few degrees, so I can do anything!

Yesterday IT girl gave me a ride home from work. We actually stopped and had dinner and then drove back to my house (with the top down in her rental car Mustang convertible). While I was watering my plants in the backyard. We were talking, and my parents drove up to drop off "Old Gray Hair".

I told her to hide and I told my parents that I just bought the car. They didn't believe me because they know I want a truck. So, she came to the front yard and they met her. My mom and her hit it off talking about her house and taxes. Kind of random, but she is an IT girl after all. As long as she doesn't talk in programming code we are good.

After the parents left we hung out for a while, and then she had to go back to the hotel. She got lost on the way back, I felt bad, but it was funny.

Gotta go, she is here.

News Flash!

Old Gray Hair has been fixed! The weekend is not ruined!


OK, I finally got home at around 9:30 last night. I had to hitch hike my way home from work. Not having a car is awkward. So, after watering my plants, I finally get inside my house and started cleaning. I had dinner at 11PM after taking a shower at 10:30PM. I cleaned until 2:30AM last night. I had to get up extra early this morning to make it to catch a ride to work. I am so tired!

It is going to be a crazy weekend.....

Something to Say

So, I know I told you my life is boring. Well actually its not. I just don't know how to put everything into words.

I am actually very busy and do a lot of different things that puts me into contact with a lot of people. I play sports, work, and am in grad school. I also manage to cook almost all of my meals (leftovers) to save money. I try new foods all the time. Last night I made a gazpacho for the first time. It was pretty good. I made it with a tropical twist including pineapple and mangos. I also do landscaping on the side whenever my schedule and weather permits. I have a wide knowledge of plants and am more than willing to help people with theirs. I am probably going to be telling you about some of my favorite plants or landscape architecture in general as well as food! I am a foodie!

So, I am sure you are wondering where I am going with this. I don't have much time to meet people to date. I have however met a lady. Lets call her IT Girl. Well, IT Girl lives in another city and is coming up this weekend. I don't know what our status is, but she is staying at my house. I have only done a few things with her (played volleyball and had lunch), so I don't know if she likes me or what. She is coming to town for work and is staying the weekend to go to a party with work friends.

So, being the gentleman that I am, I am planning on getting up early to make breakfast. I was wanting to make crepes with bananas and nutella, but I quizzed her about what kind of food she likes and dislikes, and she hates bananas. So, that is out of the question. Plan B was blueberry pancakes, so I asked her about berries. NO on blueberries. So, I am now going to make chocolate chip pancakes and regular pancakes. So, if she likes it she can have either one. I guess I should include a meat or something.

Well, as you can tell I have been thinking about that for a while. Well, last night another wrench in the plans happened. I have been driving my parent's extra car the Lincoln Continental or as I call it Old Gray Hair. My dad has a pimp old man golfing hat in the back window. So, the ladies at Braum's flock to the car when I drive up. Well, Old Gray Hair gave out on me last night. I guess the water pump went out on it. (that's another long story that we don't have time for) My Corolla went out on me in June, so now I am carless. How am I supposed to impress a lady without a car? Is that possible living in Oklahoma? She is somewhat used to the finer things from what she has told me. She drives a Mercedes. I doubt she will want to ride on my little girl bike (story below) around town.

I say "so" a lot, so please forgive me. I just noticed that.

What are we going to do around town? I was hoping to meet some friends on Friday night and then the party is Saturday night. Saturday day I thought about taking her car shopping with me because she likes shopping and she says she loves negotiating big deals.

Now I just have to figure out....Does she like me? I am so clueless. I think she does but I she sends tons of mixed signals. Why do girls do that? She is staying at my house? I don't really know her that well. I have only known her a few weeks, so its not like we are friends from high school or something.

Little girl bike - So, I go to grad school, and in the school paper there was an announcement about the Physical Plant selling bikes left around campus for dirt cheap. So, I got up early and made it to campus and bought a bike. I don't know much about bikes, but the bike I picked was one of many of the same brand and color. I thought it was the nicest of those, so I paid my $5 and got it. I crammed it into the backseat/passenger seat of my Corolla and after school went to my brother's house to put some air in the tires. Him and his wife used to go biking so I knew he had a pump. Well, I start pumping the tires out and my 11 year old niece comes out of the house and says. "What are you doing with my bike?" I said "this is my bike I bought it today." She said "No, that's my bike." I look over to the corner of the garage and she has the exact same bike except her's looks much nicer. I laughed and my brother did too. I have only ridden the bike a few times around the neighborhood. One of those was from their house to mine.

Starting Out

OK, this is my first blog. I am nervous. I have never done this before. I am a pretty private person, so this is a huge jump for me.

I hope that you guys don't find me completely boring. I tend to do a lot of things on my own, so get used to it.
