So, I dyed my hair! Ok, no big commitment. As in the stuff that washes out in 6-12 washes. Guess it really didn't turn out how I had hoped... basically it looks the same, until I go outside... then you can see a slightly red tint. *sigh* Maybe red highlights? Michelle's turned out absolutely adorable, so she's going to make it permanent. We'll have to go on another roadtrip again.

Saturday night Isaac decided he wanted to go to Wal-Mart, even though I had been there the night before. So I said sure, it got me out of the house. I know what you're thinking, and no, it was not a date. He's 16 for pete's sake. No. And come on, when I have to pay him for gas? (LOL Valerie!) And pay for my own supper? No, it's not a date. But all I have to say is Mmmmm... Chinese! I was pretty excited when he wanted to go there. And dates don't spray you with Axe and make you smell like a boy :( Oh well. At least I had some extra Bom Chicka Wah Wah.

I am sooo pumped. I get to hang out with Michelle this weekened! Tonight, we're going to make a Wal-Mart run, pretty much just to get out of our houses. And... look at the hair dye. Probably stand there for an hour or so and try to decide if we're brave enough. So we will see... and pictures if I do!
Then Sunday we're going to attempt to climb Castle Rock. Her boyfriend is coming to visit next week, and she wants to take him to it, so we're going to see if we can do it first! Then I get to meet him, and I have given her so much crap that she has a boyfriend and I haven't met him yet. And I guess she's trying to find a friend of his to set me up with... but she doesn't approve of some of them... haha. But yeah.

I feel mucho better. After words of wisdom from my friends, and some amazing e-mails from Valerie... I've gotten over it. Moved on, if you will. And I am going to get him out of my head. Ok, maybe I need a bit more time. But it will happen.

Still no word on the job front. This is getting mighty frustrating. And this is why, unless I am GUARANTEED a job at Milprint next summer, I plan on staying in La Crosse. Maybe I'll be able to find a job I can keep until I graduate. Maybe even after I graduate. Heck, by next summer I might even have my mind made up, and I can take some summer courses and grauduate in 4 years. Sound good? I'd like to stay the class of '10... be nice to graduate with my friends. Although.. being a super senior would be pretty sweet!

Oh, and as of yesterday... one month and counting until the big 2-0!! Soo... whatcha gonna get me?!

Cancer: An amazing offer or deal will come your way today. Consider your options before you agree, but don't feel guilty about taking it.

So that was my horoscope for today, and I just saw it. And today, I got an e-mail from UW-La Crosse saying that my financial aid was ready for next year. And the one grant that I already received went up by $500. And I qualified for 2 more grants... I was so happy I almost cried. There is another loan that I qualified for, although I am considering not taking it, because it is $4000. But I figured it out... if my tuition stays the same and everything... I'll end up with an extra $880 in my pocket... including my scholarship. So I guess I will have to be considering my options.

Well... still on the job hunt (although mom would beg to differ). I've filled out an application for World of Variety (a convenience store) and I ended up calling the Good Sam (the nursing home where I worked last year). And no call from the Good Sam. I suppose they don't want me since I'll work for the summer and quit again, especially since I don't really see myself coming home again next summer. Ah! Not come home? What? Yeah, dropped that bomb shell to Grandma, and let's just say she got this really sad look on her face and said, "Oh Allie." Well, am I really supposed to stay at home forever? I don't think so. I thought I wanted to come back to Fennimore and teach. Maybe I won't. Maybe it is too close to anyone and everyone I've ever known, and I need to get away.
One of my friends who moved to Chicago to go to school for fashion design is moving home. Well, she's moving to Madison anyways, which is closer! But she's one who had to get away from Fennimore, so it really makes me think. I wanted to stay here all my life, that's why I picked La Crosse, I could [fairly] easily make it home in a day, and have most of the weekend. And be close enough to come home and pray that one of my teachers would retire so I could teach English at my high school. But maybe now I'm realizing that I need something different. No, I'm not transferring or going anywhere, I really do love La Crosse and all my friends there. But... should I stick with an English major? Am I really the right person to be a teacher? Sure, everyone tells me that I'm a great people person. Well duh, that's because I already know you. I'm TERRIBLY shy around new people. So shy it almost hurts, and makes everything very awkward.
If I had a wish... it would be that someone would tell me what I'm supposed to do. Is my life going to turn out ok? Am I going to get a decent job? Am I ever going to meet someone? Will I have a family? I know... I'm not even 20 yet. I'm not supposed to ask these kind of questions... but it is really hard not to think about them sometimes.

Wow. I think that might be a record for longest-blog-by-Allison ever. For those 3 of you that read this... well 4 I guess... Dad doesn't comment.

Uff da. I think that sums it all up.

Who knew graduation parties would be so awkward? I couldn't even carry on a 5 minute conversation with the people that I talked to everyday last year. Even seeing one of my best friends... it was just... so... sad? And then my best friend in the whole wide world, I never see her at all anymore. We went to school in the same town, she went to a private university. We didn't get to see each other at all 2nd semester, being only about a 10 minute walk away. I guess we just got busy... but I started staying up later just so we could talk. And I've seen her once since we've both moved home... she's turned into a workaholic. I'm even considering going back to the Good Sam, where she works as a CNA, just so I can see her more... I miss her like crazy.

Is it bad that I get insanely jealous of all these couples around me?

Tonight's graduation. I really can't believe it's been a year since I've graduated. Yeah, yeah, I know only a year, but it seems like so much has happened since then. Making new friends... making it through my freshman year... it's crazy.

So, is $118 too much to spend on a Flat Iron? I dunno. My curly hair is ok... I like it sometimes... it's just that I really like my hair when it's straight. And it takes forever to do it... and I get ticked off at it and give up halfway through... lol.

But yes. I need to quit complaining about such stupid stuff.
