well, bee’s i’m officailly 18! it’s exciting. and for those of you who had read my post from last night(moving out of my moms) I’ve calmed down quite a bit. I was calm when I wrote the post but not as much as I should have been. To be perfectly honest, I’m a bit of an emotional person, and it’s gotten worse since I started my birth control(which i know is not a valid excuse).
I’m still planning on moving out. I may not go to the justice of the peace, and I might not move in with my in laws. I plan on talking to Mr.bobby about what some of you suggested, we get an apartment or i get one with a room mate.
I’m young, I don’t know near as much most of you, but i’m more than ready and willing to learn. Being a waitress is not the best of jobs and i get more than sick of the drama the temper tantrums from managers and all the drugs. So, as soon as I get the money for my car and get a new car I’m going to be looking for a new job. I’m not entirely sure what to do though. I’d really like to be an art teacher, so maybe i can find out what to do to start off as a substitute and go from there.
I’m still excited about planning the wedding! I’m just having trouble find cute affordable invites! Making my very own invites scares me! haha i’m a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to those things, but flowers, decorations no problem! lol
oh! and great news! Mr.bobby’s band equipment was stole last week. All of it, except for the bass guitar and one of his. Other than that all of the bands things were stolen..until yesterday when the ringleader turned him self in and we got everthing but the drummers microphone back. But the police said that there was still so much stuff there they should be able to find it. So, I’m still getting him the hell raiser guitar i was going to get him orginaly because everything else was gone.

Go to http://www.vistaprint.com for your invites. I purchased 100 invitations and 100 rsvp cards for $89.00 with free shipping. They turned out beautiful. (Pics don’t do them justice.)

Yay! I’m glad things have calmed down. You sound like you’re much more inclined to make good decisions. (And well done taking the Bees’ advice into consideration. They really have been there before and know what they’re talking about.) Oh, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

Happy Birthday. If you really want to learn more about life and pursue your dream of becoming an art teacher, get yourself enrolled in college. Even if you have to start at community college. GL.

I just commented on your previous post but I’m glad to hear that you’re taking some advice into consideration. I also agree with Ali about looking into college if you’re interested in being an art teacher. Community college is affordable and then you could always transfer to a four year (which is what my teacher fiance did)

Happy Birthday! There’s some jobs that will help pay for college that might be worth looking into. I read your previous post and everyone’s lives take different paths but I I think for a lot of people they are worried because they changed a lot once they were out of their parents house and usually for the better. And for me it was a time of making some of my very closest girlfriends who were a great support system and still are. Marriage is about joining with another but you’re at a point where you’re going to try and find yourself out on your own and join with another at the same time. It’s a tricky path to choose but plenty of people have done it successfully. Just allow yourself room to do both, to have girlfriends and be 18 and grow as you see and explore the world and to also explore with your partner, in whatever form – boyfriend or husband. Probably good advice for anyone but especially when you’re young and heading out on your own for the first time, to allow for experience and change.

Happy bday! Go to college. FOR SURE!
I, too, waited tables when I was younger. I started at 18 b/c that’s how old i needed to be to serve liquor. I was surrounded by young pregnant single women who didn’t know the father’s names, some people who did drugs and scammed the people eating, and a slew of other desirables. What amazed me was that no matter what, I always knew that I was going to college and I would be so far ahead of these “low lifes”. I waited tables in a really hoosier, white trash place. I usually walked out with like 10% at the end of the night and it was just awful and trashy.
It’s an eye opening experience, but get yourself out of that environment and do something better for yourself. If you don’t DO something, you’ll get stuck there. I’ts hard to walk away from even the crappiest job situation where you have cash in hand every night.
If you want to do something, do it. Get out and make your own mark in the world. Encourage Mr. Bobby to do the same.

I think you are steering yourself in the right direction and I wish you all the best of luck!
