Everyone is mad at me because it's been 2 months since my last post...but here we go.
Christmas. Was. WONDERFUL. It was soooo great to be back with the fam and friends and just having Christmas celebrations, giving and receiving presents, eating EVERYTHING THAT WOULD FIT IN MY MOUTH, going to TCBY with Lis, eating ABC with Bray, watching awesome TV shows (I wish) with Jo, and hanging out with Non, Dud, Tar, and Hay. Once Non had to go back to work, Dud, Hay, and I just straight up hung out everyday. Not even kidding I gained about 7 lbs while I was home because I said "Oh, no thanks, I'm not going to eat that." to absolutely NOTHING. It was divine.

Needless to say...I had a great Christmas with great people. The only thing that was missing was Yuyo, his family, and of course QB.
|This was before Christmas...now he is grandote (HUGE!)|
|This is the beast now...|
So these past 2 months, I've just been doing the same old, same old. Going to school, taking QB for walks, going to the movies, hanging out with Yuyo, eating Friday lunch with Colleen and Meggie, etc. Nothing really new in my life. I've stopped worrying about work, stopped being stressed and already, this semester is 10x better. I think partially it's because I know I'm on the downward slope and I have a routine. I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm happy every single day at 2 pm. I am really happy. haha. But, I've learned to live with it.
About 2 weeks ago, I sent an email to the English coordinator at the University Yuyo attends, UPAEP--that's the acronym, I'm actually not really sure what the name of the University is...haha. Anyways, I wanted to inquire about positions for the fall. I got an email back from him last week saying he'd love to interview me and wondered if I could teach classes starting right away. ha. I told him that because I have a full time job and because I tutor, I would not be able to teach right now, but I am very interested about the fall. Sooo I would love for all of you to pray about this job interview. I haven't received an email back saying when it is, but I think teaching older students is right up my alley. And, because it's a college, I wouldn't have to deal with parents and complaining all the time, it would be just my students and me. I like that.
Anyways, that's what's going on with me, nothing really new. Just an update about Christmas I guess. Oh, for Valentine's Day, it was Yuyo and I's first time being in the same place! Now...I'm not a super Valentine's kinda girl. In fact, I don't really even love it at all, but we went to dinner and Yuyo bought me some roses and I made him a 3 Leches cake. It was delish. Seriously. I really want some right now actually. But, it was nice. We just chilled and I went to bed early that night!! I swear, it's incredibly sad when you are excited about getting in bed before 11 pm. hahaha.
Well, that's all I got for now. Thanks for reading. Love you guys!
