Kelly and TJ Update

Kelly has been busy working. That’s just about all he has time to do. For those of you who don’t know what he does, he works for a drilling company called JB Hunt. He is actually a Driller out on one of the drilling rigs. He starts his morning at 4am and comes home about 4pm everyday for two weeks straight. Then he has 4 days off. I don’t know exactly what all he does out there. You would have to ask him! It’s very confusing to me. He could tell you all about it, though. I just know that he is very good at it and really does love doing it. It's a very dangerous job and it takes someone very smart to do what he does. Although it's very dangerous, I don't worry about him too much because I know that he is very careful and has years of experience. He's been working on a rig even before he graduated high school. I still have to worry about him anyway. Just a little! :) I am very proud of him and know that he will only keep moving up in the oil industry. He’s very smart and is a very hard working, determined person. He works hard at everything he does and I know that he will work hard for his future family. I even think that one day he might run his own drilling company. Oh, and by the way, his hometown is Big Spring! Funny how the love of your life was so close, but yet so far away! Oh well, found him anyway!

Ok, what’s been going on with me? Well, most of you know that I graduated from Cosmetology school about a year ago and started working in a salon. After a few months, I just knew it wasn’t for me. After I stopped, I decided that I wanted to try substitute teaching to see what that was all about. I did it for a few months right before school was out for the summer in Stanton. It was really interesting and fun being up there around my mom. It was strange being on the other side of things. Being the teacher instead of the student after all these years! Well, summer had arrived and I didn’t have a job again so I decided to start looking back at Midland College where I worked part-time while going to school. I applied for a few jobs there and nothing seemed to be working out. Then, all of a sudden, a job was available! My former boss and friend from Midland College had emailed me letting me know that she was resigning. It was the same job that I had part-time except it was full-time! I ended up getting it and that’s where I am today. I am a full-time clerk for the faculty work room. I recently figured out that I am only three classes away from having an Associates in General Studies so I’m going to go ahead and finish that up. Then, I don’t really know? I am thinking of going back to school eventually for some type of Business degree or possibly teaching. Right now, I'm just really tired of school. I know I will do something. I'll figure it out one day.
