    My parents would not help or co-sign on ANYTHING. I have been at this by myself since day one. I literally had no credit when I began. In fact I had to PAY to get a credit card lol. I had that for a year and then got a second credit card. THEN. When I wanted to buy a house, I discovered that I did not have "enough lines of credit". So I bought a truck on a 5 yr payment plan. Now I am finally making some headway with the whole credit thing.

    I thought of you when I read about the shooting Mars. It blows my mind that this kinda stuff even happens. Prayers for everyone involved.

    I had a serious goal to enter a bikini barrel race before I left for California lmao!!! They are fun! The show is not as "out there" as it seems. People really do act like that.

    Speaking of which... In a really weird twist of fate, the manager position came open at my place of business. And I am going to apply.

    To all of you who are searching for jobs... I will offer up my personal life experience. I have a BS in Animal Science. I applied for 6 months to every job imaginable. FINALLY after *begging* I got a job at a Cheese factory. Working nights and weekends. On the production floor. Let me go over that again. I have a BS in Animal Science. I work at a Cheese Factory. Nights & Weekends for over a year. Clearly not your dream job after graduating college. But I toughed it out. And now I am a corporate representative for that company... and I live in a vineyard in California. I am 24 and I did it myself, I did not have any connections. Bottom line. Be OPEN to opportunity and hard work. Too many college grads think life owes them something. Of course I want to do something with animals, but that option never presented itself to me. The end. I will step off my soapbox, but like I said this is my experience... :)

    Little less freaked out this morning. I am just going to stay positive. My next doctors appointment is not until the end of the month so I will know more then.

    So. I could use some prayers/good thoughts/well wishes... I got a phone call from the doctor today. Apparently some tests I did came back as positive for low grade cancer. They scheduled an appointment with some specialists for me. Trying to stay calm but not working.

    Ahahahahaha! I try to convince myself of this on a daily basis. California is getting easier for me. I mean I did spend Saturday at the beach, not in -50 windchill.

    I will spew out some real numbers for you guys concerning grad school. It takes 30 hours to graduate. Let's say 1 class = $3000 with books & fees. Total Cost =$30,000 I currently take one class per semester- at 3 semesters a year I will graduate in 3.33 years. That means I need to save $750 per month in order to pay as I go. My current job also pays me back 120% of all college costs (as long as I continue to work for them). So now I am potentially banking $6,000. It is totally worth it if I keep my head down and work like a mad woman. But it will be really reaaallllyyyy hard.

    ^^Ya, housing bubble and all that jazz. It is strange. I can live in a mini-mansion here for relatively cheap, but try to look at anything with acreage and you better be packing a truckload of money around. It is a love hate relationship that I have right now...

    Lol... I live in a horseless world Indy!!!!

    This is random, but... I am currently in school to get my Masters degree. The advisers send out job postings from potential employers. And based off of the salaries they present, I am thinking I have no real reason to further my education. Other than a personal desire. But it is really making me question my decision to throw sooooooooooooooooooooooooo much money into this for little to no return. What is the point? Hmmm.
  17. The "circle Of Trust" Pt. Ii

    Why am I the only one posting on this thing... I have accepted my West coast fate over here. In fact, I bought an apron. And other housewife things. I dont know where this is going, but I am definitely gonna ride it out.
  18. What. What Is This Place.

    Oh I professionally work with cheese. That you are all eating. Mughahaha.
  19. What. What Is This Place.

    Emmyleeeeeee omg! It is so awesome that you are all professional over there. :)

    Merry Christmas loves. :) I feel like doing a life update. FH got a new job. Not just any job, a really awesome wonderful job. I am so proud of him but this puts a spin on everything. Because now I have a great job and he has a great job. In California. The plan was never to live here forever. But with all of this "opportunity", I see no way around it. I have considered house hunting. I am not a fan of my current location. http://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/4112-Spring-Mountain-Ct_Modesto_CA_95356_M15550-02146?row=434 That one looks cute right? *sigh, I miss Texas.

    Merry Christmas my little KO family.

    So. I have resigned myself to live without horses for the next year. I must replace my hobby with something else or I will go mad. Yoga has come to mind. It looks so enticing! My masters program starts in a few weeks. And I just started a new job 2 months ago, so I do have alot on my plate... But none of those things are for "me" ya know?

    So. Our truck got robbed last night. I dont want to go into details. But I feel so violated and unsafe. Welcome to California...

    ^^^^HAHAHAHAH The wedding planner is around $5k. Which again is reasonable to me. It is evvvvvvvvvvveeeeeeeeeerrrrrrryyyyyyyyyyttttttthhhhhhhhiiiiing else that is the killer.
  25. The "circle Of Trust" Pt. Ii

    It blew my mind. I told her to stick with $10-$15k and she went over twice that... I cut it down to the bare bones and wound up at $10k, but I cannot believe that it will not stretch farther! I am not even planning anything grand and extravagant over here, I think I am just getting the run around. And yes, I already tried to convince my fiance that a $30k horse would be just fine with a $5k wedding.
