I just bought plane tickets last night to go visit Harmony in Washington, DC! Evan and I, and my friends Jordan and Garrett are going too and it is going to be so much fun! We are flying out on November 17th and staying until the 23rd, which is the during the week of Thanksgiving break and Evan and I's 3rd year anniversary! I am going to miss on day of school (Thursday) because I only have class 2 days a week, but it is totally worth it. I just found out yesterday that I am getting financial aid ($7900 to be exact) so now I can afford to do something fun! It is totally awesome because all the sights in DC like the Smithsonian are all free! So it is going to be a pretty cheap trip besides the plane ticket.

I am sick right now and it sucks. Runny nose, cough, stuffy head...totally not fun.

So far I have had no luck in my job search. I have an interview on Wednesday for a scribe/exam reader postion, which hopefully will go well because it would be really nice to work at the school and have breaks off. I am also applying for a laboratory aide position at Redwood Sciences Lab, where I worked doing data entry. I would be analyzing water samples, pretty basic, but still I like being able to work in a science-y environment.

So pretty much I am loving playing soccer right now in my soccer class and on my futsal team. I didn't know how much I missed soccer until I started playing. I think it was good for me to take a break from my high school mindset of devoting my life to soccer.

I wish I had some pictures to post on here but all the pictures I have taken recently are all of mushrooms for school lol.

The next thing we need to figure out is if it is going to work out to go to Costa Rica this winter!

I think I have finally settled back into the school routine. I don't feel like 2 years is a lifetime anymore. I am DEFINITELY ready to be done with general ed though. Learning about the scientific method, natural selection, and evolution for the millionth time in dumbed down terms is not my idea of a good time.

So last weekend my parents and Alex came up for my Dad's 61st birthday and Evan's parents came up for Blues by the Bay. We all went out to dinner at the Waterfront in Eureka (a very expensive restaurant but for some reason it was the only open on we could find in Old Town Eureka) and I was so nervous before, but of course it turned out perfectly fine. The conversation went smoothly and everybody got along quite well. And I had some delicious sushi. My dad even paid for the bill without flinching (visibly). We went on a hike and went to the beach a couple times, which was quite nice and the weather was very beautiful. I am glad that the first meeting is out of the way. There might be another potential meeting in November when Shasta College mens soccer team plays College of the Redwoods over here. It would be nice if our parents were able to get used to seeing each other a couple times a year or something.

Speaking of November, Evan and I's 3 year anniversary is coming up around Thanksgiving. It's so crazy to think that we have been together that long but at the same time it feels like I have always been with him. I can't even fathom life without him. I just can't believe that I found someone this perfect for me who is also my best friend.

Enough with the mushy stuff. I joined a futsal league yesterday and I totally love it! Futsal is a Portuguese version of indoor soccer. The main difference is that the ball is smaller and heavier and you don't play off the walls. It took a little getting used to, but when I got the hang of it I totally kicked some ass! I love how fast paced it is! I scored like 4-5 goals last night, which felt really good. I was even pulling some moves and some truly sweet passes. I am really excited for games to start next week. I bought some new indoor shoes today (yay for having small feet so I can buy kids shoes and pay less). Unfortunately my shinguards are in Redding so I need to have my dad send me them.

I love blackberries. It is blackberry season up in Humboldt right now I need to stock up on the most delicious free, local, and organic food available. If I do it right I can usually be eating frozen blackberries well into the spring.
