So I haven't really had much time to actually update, that whole LIFE thing getting in the way of serious blogging... (sarcasm so thick you could cut it with a spoon) but I figured it was time to give an actual update for people I haven't gotten to see or speak to in a while.
To start off lets go with the big news, for those of you out there that missed jedimeg16
's facebook update, she is pregnant. Meaning come middle of June we will be parents, yes I know shocking isn't it? As of this moment we do not know if we are getting a boy or a girl, and even if we do find out (which we are not planing on finding out ourselves until the kid is born) we won't be telling anyone. We do at least have names picked out for each that we are more than happy with, and names we feel are good names that won't get a kid picked on for having (think moonbeam and you will know what we are straying very very far away from). So far jedimeg16
has been doing well with the pregnancy, mostly standard stuff but she has been handling it very well. Her doctor visits have also show that our child has been growing well and as of now has a healthy heart beat.
Work has been well, work. Many ups and downs, many things that have made the job a bit easier, and quite a bit of drama in the workplace, most of which I'm not going to discuss just because there is so many problems that have popped up. That and I will probably be cutting off my Walgreens gem posts because now walgreens is asking its employees to please watch what we say on social networking sites such as this and facebook. Sorry for your dismay on this but job security what it is I have to watch out for myself and my growing family now. I may do something at a later point depending on my availability and drive to get it done may put together something along the lines of a twitter of a stupid comment of the day for people to follow under a new user name to protect myself. When I do get around to making such an account I will make a quick post about it on here and facebook, but I will not be publicly be posting the link via the internet to distance myself from my newest source of venting/laughing at people.
In the mean time catch up on a few of my favorite people in the blogging world www.theangrypharmacist.com/
both of which have a great amount of humorous postings of stupid people.
In school related news I have started my last class at EIU as of this week, well not at EIU but online at least. I figured Medical terminology would be a good class for me and so far I was right, I have a weekly quiz to take a few bigger tests and a final but nothing new to a student. I hope to pass the class with a good grade and make my family proud of me this semester, then I can get my hands on an actual college degree. Although I am starting to think it may be a good idea to try some classes at CLC to shape my degree into something that I can use to eventually get out of Walgreens with, but not completely yet.
The last bit of news I have is of a passing, yesterday morning a dear friend of mine passed away, one that I have had many memories with and many good times with. I was not planning on such a sudden passing of this old friend but it had a good run, I mean 5 years without any serious illness, no need to take it into a professional to have it looked at, no real problems to speak of, I consider the time with the lost friend with the best of them.
Yes its sad that my Mac's Hard drive died yesterday morning but it's for the best really, I had been planning on either this year or within the next few years turning it into a media server to hold my data and music as I needed it and connect the few external drives I had sitting around into a nice media server with about a terabyte of space between them, but now it looks like I am a little forced into the situation, thankfully I back up my data almost as I go, although I need to get some help in recovering a bit of my data.andyguy82
remember those disks I gave you with all the role playing game data on them, if you could make a copy them at some point in time and mail them to me that would be great as I have pretty much lost all that wonderful data with the loss of my hard drive.
