New days..

Well, this is my first blog, and I'm pretty excited to start it. I guess I just figure you can all feel like you came away to college with me. Anyways I started my new job today. I am working at Allstate Insurance company. I worked there in California and I was very lucky to be able to get this job before I got up here. It was very hard for me to leave California because I loved my job so much. So I made up a cover letter explaining my situation and I was lucky to get a response from and agent who had an open position in his office! So that is very exciting. I started today and only went in for about an hour to get some stuff set up, but I start tomorrow full time! And I should be getting my license, so it will be legit. I should have had my license by now, but due to my recent decision to pack up and move to another state, I didn't end up getting it. But I am thrilled to know that I will be able to just continue on up here. I really do love my job though. Everyone up here seems surprised when I tell them where I'm working, as if I should be scooping ice cream at 31 flavors (no offense Julia) But for real, I think no one really knows better. The just expect that part of college is having a crappy job. However that is not the case. I know it was a crazy blessing that I had the opportunity to live in California and work at my previous job, so that I could be set up here. Everything is coming together beautifully, and I guarantee that is is all thanks to my mom. I'm a lucky girl. Not to mention my dad for helping me and making all of this possible. Because I may have said "I could move up there tomorrow if I wanted to, I can do it without your help" but that is not true at all. He was the one who really made it possible. And he is amazing and the best dad anyone could ask for, and I mean that. He is so unselfish and he just goes above and beyond. This was a hard thing to do without my mom here. But Between my dad (making all my appointments, making the down payment on my car, buying my crap, ect) Julia (taking me to buy my new comforter, my sheets and my pillow sham, and most important my BRITTA WATER FILTER, and then stealing back HER ipod and then giving it back to me to use :) Katherine (doing exactly what she needed to do, and being exactly what I needed her to be. giving me her expertise on Utah, and the walmart shortcut :) and everyone else in my life. Because everyone helped me out, by just being there. It was so great to see Richard and Kristy before I left. And of course Annie, she was so strong through the whole thing. And I know it was hard for her to do. She is so brave, and I would not have left if I wasn't completely sure that she would be alright. She is brilliant and if she thinks that just cuz I'm out of the state I'm not going to know what shes up to, but think again. I got eyes and ears all over corona, and i will get in my car and drive right back if need be and I will regulate. But I know I won't have to. Shes a great girl, and she'll behave herself. She's never been the rebellious type anyways :)

You're awesome, Maggie. I love you and miss you. I'm so glad it worked out that I could be there with you. Your apartment is so cute and I love all your new stuff.

PS, did you get your dust ruffle yet. I loved the comment about 31 flavors.

And you just remember, I have eyes and ears all over Provo so you better be on your best behavior as well. Or else I'm going to have to come out there and regulate ;)
