Life Update

A few days ago I was teasing Trent about how I miraculously avoided his nasty cold.

That was a mistake.

Today I woke up with knives in my throat. It also felt like -500 degrees in my house because of those terrible hot/cold chills. STOP KISSING ME TRENT!

But seriously...I got three phone calls today and all thought they had the wrong number. 

Man voice.

Gracie and I got to spend some quality time together. Which mostly consisted of long naps and begging for food.

Gracie was the one begging.

Trent has been an excellent care taker...bringing me soup, making sure I'm taking my medicine (I'm a child), giving me foot rubs, refilling my water, apologizing for the kisses that got me sick.....

I'm not bitter.

Tonight we found out Hulu Plus has movies (thanks Chantal). Naturally, we choose a weirdo documentary called "American Shopper".

It's about the sport "Aisling", in which contestants are given a list of items to collect while performing a choreographed dance to music.

Yes. This is real. There was a $10,000 prize.

We didn't know until we started watching, but "Aisling" was actually founded in Columbia, MO. All the filming was done at the Schnuck's off Stadium/Forum. Holla at all the Mizzou grads out there! ;-)

I also attempted to study for a property and casualty insurance exam today...BECAUSE I GOT A JOB! :-)

Last week I accepted a position with State Farm agent Jim Garrison doing a variety of different roles, including sales/marketing in his Topeka office.

To be honest, I never saw myself in insurance until my friend Courtney told me how much she liked her job at State Farm. The more I thought about it, the more I realized how passionate I really am about making intelligent financial decisions (I talked a little bit about it in this post back in September). Our generation is lacking in financial preparation -just look up statistics on the average household savings. It's alarming.

So starts this new journey of learning the importance of covering your assets and preparing wisely for your future. My first day in the office is March 17th, but I have been studying for the P&C license exam, which I take next week.

It sorta feels like I'm in college again. Except I'm not as distracted by my friends. Or my boyfriend (Trent). Or jumbo chocolate chip cookies at Mark Twain Hall. Or picking up drunks.

Cheers to tomorrow. May it bring my fever down, and my voice up. Like way up. Thanks.

  1. As I was reading this, I was like, "Hey I think that Aisling thing happened in Columbia..." Boom! Also, a million times yes to Twain chocolate chip cookies!
