Oh Hey, Friday // Blogmopolitan Mash-Up

Friday, July 18, 2014

We made it to Friday, yet again! Technically, yesterday was my Friday since I took today off of work to go sign 900 pieces of paper and buy a house! Craziness. So, while I'm doing that, you get to read this!


First up, linking up with Karli Belle and Amy for a Friday link-up. This week? Five things that are happening in the next month.

1. If you're new here... oh my God, we're buying a house! Today! At 10 am, we'll sit down to close on our first home, and as far as I can tell, that entails 2 hours of non-stop signing of papers. Then we get the keys. A happy dance may or may not occur. There will probably be adult beverages. If you're lucky, we'll do a happy dance after a few adult beverages, and then I'll get a video of the silly dance and post it on the internet, against my better judgment. What do you think? Yay or nay?

2. I'm leaving my job! There are 3 work days and 5 actual days left of my 9-5 (or 8-4... or 10-6) life and I am alternately totally thrilled and absolutely terrified. I won't be making any money... but I'll be a full time student! I will be working towards my dream... and probably really stressed out! So, 7/23 is the last day I'll walk into CHOP as a research coordinator. Someday, I plan to walk back in as a med student... and maybe, if I'm lucky, a resident. Fingers crossed, my friends. Fingers crossed.

3. We're moving! This makes sense, seeing as we wouldn't just buy a house and then continue to live in our rented condo. A week from Saturday, the movers are showing up and packing all of our earthly possessions into their truck, because after we used movers for our last move, we swore we'd never go back to bribing our friends and family with pizza and beer to move our stuff. Seriously, if you need to move and you're over the age of 23, it's time to use movers. Trust me on this one. So, the 26th we officially move into our new place... which hopefully will be painted by then, if all goes according to plan and the painters don't fall off the face of the planet. Here's to hoping.

4. I'm going to NC to be the "best groomsmaid" in my best guy friend's wedding! Mike and I have been friends since 6th grade when we were paired up to do some corny project in math class. He also happens to be a phenomenal cellist, pianist, and vocalist, so we spent a lot of time together in various orchestras and choirs. He currently teaches string instruments to elementary students, so you can tell that he has the patience of a saint. He is marrying a wonderful woman named Jen, who we went to high school with, and she is a counselor. They are two of the sweetest people I've ever met, and they are perfect for each other. I am so honored to stand up with them on August 9th for their wedding. Don't worry, there will be pictures and a post about our trip, I'm sure!

5. I'm starting med school! Holy. Crap. On August 3rd, I'll get my white coat with much pomp and circumstance, and then after a short orientation (and a whirlwind trip to NC for the wedding), I'll jump into full-time classes on the 11th. Hello, anatomy, biochemistry, microbiology, genetics, physiology, and histology... goodbye sanity, sleep, and social life! I'm mostly looking forward to it, but I am definitely nervous to get back into a schedule of full-time studying with little division between home and school. It will certainly be interesting...

So those are my five gigantic plans for the next month. What are yours? Please tell me about all of your fabulous vacations that you have planned, because I need to live vicariously through you since I will be up to my eyeballs in packing, moving, and med school.

Before I head out, I'd like to direct your attention to Blogmopolitan 2.0, presented by Erin of Two-Thirds Hazel. I thought this was such a fun idea, I just had to jump on board. Make sure you head over to her blog to see everyone else's answers. You might just make a new friend!




I'll see you all back here on Monday, only then, I'll be a homeowner. What the crap is happening to my life!? Have a good weekend, all!

    1. Hahaha, so glad you stopped by, and I'm glad that you enjoyed the post. Also, you are definitely not the first person to look forward to the drunken dancing video, so it looks like in order to please the masses, I'll be making sure that happens. Also also, this is the second time I will be standing in the "best man" position. The first time I didn't have a special title, but Mike and I came up with Best Groomsmaid for his wedding. I can't wait!
