My second home?!

Sometimes I can't help but think that with all the time I spend at Kid to Kid, I am really living another life. I mean every super hero has a secret. Clark Kent is not only a newspaper reporter, but also Superman. Peter Parker may only look like a student, but he also swings from the town as Spiderman. I may be Kaitlyn Manscill, but I also live a life of saving all those parents from piles of clothes that their kids have out grown! Its no easy job dealing with crazy parents. (ya ya I know, I am quite the super hero, just with out the cape!)

I really do love my job. It really has become like a second home to me (in a weird bizarre work kind of way). Corrie, the manager, is simply the best. Her little 3 year old girl, my new best friend, is so adorable, epically when she answers the phone," what up gangsta'? The two other girls that work there are super sweet. You just can't beat it. I do spend most of my time there, working about 40 hours a week, but I enjoy it. It is a very chill job, but I keep busy, (or I should be, but I thought taking picture was more fun at the moment.) It's such a great place to work and been such a blessing!

Here are a few pictures of my adventure, (or break time I should say hehe)

Wish I could fit

Reading corner!

If I hide she can't find me

Sitting on all the work I have to do.

Break time!

Mail mail and more mail

It comes everyday, 6 days a week,
At the hour of 10 the mail truck drives up my street.
He brings many letters from anywhere you can think,
Filling my mail box to the point it might sink.
Letters from family, and bills not yet paid,
Mountains and mountains of piles they have made.
I'm up to my eye balls in piles of mail,
Newspaper ads, and the latest new sale.
I wish the mail man would take a break for a week,
But I look out the window and see him drive up my street.

As you can see I have been a bit lazy in opening the mail. But in my defense most of it is my brothers, they just never pick it up. It just keeps multiplying. My brother put me in charge of the mail which I think is funny. I have no idea what I am looking for. Lets just hope I don't missing anything or throw anything important away. Good thing my parents can look everything up online (right Mom haha).

Take Time To

I walked into our front room and I found this and I absolutely loved it...

Take time to...
it is the price of success
it is the secret of perpetual youth
it is the source of power
it is the fountain of wisdom
it is conversation with God
it is the music of the soul
it is the pathway to understanding
it is hitching your wagon to a star
it is the highway of reverence
it is the gift of God

A place in this wold

Change, the only constant thing in my life right now. Since graduation all that has been thrown into my life is change. Everything seems to be changing around me while I stay put, but in the smallest way all this change has had the biggest effect on me. It has been a very hard 6 months and I may have had a few melt downs, but I have grown so much as person.

As I have been making plans for my future, I cant help but think if I am making the right choice. My plan was to attend SUU next August, but just last night I was having doughs once again. My friends are home for the weekend from SUU, and as they talk about all their friends and everything that happens, I cant help but think if I will be able to fit into this life of theirs. Will I ever has such as good a friendship as they have? I don't want to have to be fit into their lives, be scheduled in, or feel like a burden to them. My heart is, and has been, so set on going to SUU I just don't know if I should take this huge leap.

Last night driving home from Jenny's house, this song came on my IPod that I feel sums up everything, and I thought I would share the first little bit of the song. Its by Taylor Swift and its called "A Place in this World."

I don't know what I want, So don't ask me, cause I'm still trying to figure it out.
Don't know what's down this road,
I'm just walking.
Trying to see through the rain coming down.
Even though I'm not the only one,
that feels the way I do.

Got the radio on, my old blue jeans,
And I'm wearing my heart on my sleeve. Feeling lucky today, got the sunshine.
Can you tell me what more do I need?
And tomorrow's just a mystery, oh yeah,
but that's okay.

I'm alone, on my own, and that's all I know.
I'll be strong, I'll be wrong,
Oh, but life goes on.
Oh, I'm just a girl, trying to find a place in this world.

Right now I don't really know what I want, and I am just trying to figure that out. On of my favorite quotes comes from the movie Kung Fu Panda, and it sums up everything, "Yesterday is history, tomorrow's a mystery, and today is a gift, that's why it's called the present." I just need to take this gift and run with it, my road is clear and a mystery, and I just need to uncover it, and see what's in store for me and where I fit in. After all, I am just a girl, trying to find a place in this world.

Last night I looked back on the past week and realized how lazy I have been. Aside from school and work I don't have any other goals to work on. Maybe goals is not the best word, but activities or hobbies to keep me busy, and a better way to spend my time other then wondering around the house bored. Here is what I came up with...

1. Blogging, a few nights ago I watched the Movie Julie & Julia, and I loved the fact that Julie blogged about her experience cooking her way through Julia's cook book. I am not going to cook my way through a cook book or anything to exciting, but I thought I could keep up on my blog.
2. Develop my talents, I love playing the piano, and the other day I realized I play the same couple of songs over and over (I am sure my family is sick of hearing the same songs). My inability to read note has held me back from learning all the songs I wish to learn, but if I take the time and really try and focus and practice I am hoping to learn a few new songs.
3. Cooking, as my parents have moved away and I have learned to live on my own I cant help but realize I have no cooking skills. I should take this opportunity to learn to cook. I am sure my brother would appreciate a gook cooked meal every so often.

So for the next couple of weeks I am hoping I can work on these activities/hobbies and spend my time more wisely, and learn to better my life.
