Maddie’s Life #2

Mom and I have been refurnishing the sun room. We’ve taken out the ceiling and are currently putting up a new one. We plan on also taking up the carpet.

When we took out the ceiling we found black mold and sunlight… So that had to be taken care of. There is nothing quite like taking down a piece of dry wall and being rained on by black mold and dead bugs.Image

The night before I took the SAT I watched Batman and went to the hospital. I was having heart problems. I just so happen to take after the two people with the worst heart problems. Dad gave me his eyes, his freckles, and his irregular heartbeat; My Great Grandmother gave me her body type, jewelry, and heart thingy I can’t spell.

The SATs went well… it was pretty easy, I only had to skip five questions.

I’m studying CLEPs now.

I’m thinking about getting a new job. I think that I may end up working at Cracker Barrel. The place itself isn’t very cool but the job is; they treat their employees really well.

Oh! And I was Santa for Halloween. I made a lot of two-year-olds very confused.

… Because you don’t ever really hear the words “Bethany” and “rest” in the same sentence. Not often enough, anyway.

Hi, it’s me again. I just wanted to write a quick post about my life lately. I’ve applied to work at TJ Maxx and Rue21 this week; crossing my fingers that they’ll be the last applications I have to turn in. Also, Halloween marks the last day for the Joffrey summer scholarship contest, which means that I should be getting my results some time over the next few weeks.

Other than that, I haven’t been doing too much this week. I even took some time on Monday to go shopping with my friend Morgan; absolutely nothing work, school, or dance-related. I was a bit out of my element shopping for street clothes (I usually only buy leotards and tights), but I had a good time.

To take pressure off of myself and my parents to save enough money for Joffrey, I’ve decided to use a crowd-funding website to help raise money for tuition. That takes a load off my shoulders. I’m constantly in this state of perpetual movement, perpetual business, and perpetual thinking, but now I think I’d like to wind down. No more worrying about things for me. I’ll leave that to Maddie and Krysta.

It’s going to work out. I’ll get a job, I’ll go to Joffrey, and I’ll go to England.
