Pictures from palm springs

Ok.. I'm done being mad about those essays. for right now anyways.
I have to move on to bigger and better things--- PALM SPRINGS!!
here are some pictures:

We, of course being huge finatics, went to DISNEYLAND!! which was a blast. we did lots of hiking while we were there-- super intense. but very satisfactory && a great workout! anyways, these are just a few pictures from the trip. My mom has a lot of other good ones on her camera that I am hoping to snag in the near future..

Professors that assign 3 essays due (all in the same class) the week after spring break are not cool in my book.

That's all I have to say right now.

Palm springs update

Hello all!
I'm here to provide all of my avid readers an update on all my palm springs action.
It's been pretty fabulous so far, there's no denying it. Yesturday (our first full day) it was windy all day long. I'm talkin serious, lift you up and blow you away wind. Needless to say, we didn't get much pool time, but it was still sunny. We went and checked out this old famous singers pad (her name was Kate Smith, she's famous for singing God Bless America, died in 1986). It was phenomenal. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. Anyhoo. TODAY. it was beautiful. Clear skies all day long. It started out with 4 mimosas and a vodka cran. (note: this was all before the clock even struck 12) So if you can only imagine, Jilly got a bit tired so she took a nap by the pool. for a few hours. I woke up with quite the sunglasses tan going on on my face. Pretty stellar.
Palm springs is treatin me good. Tomorrow brings new adventures, such as hikes and waterfalls, discount fashion malls, dinner at a fancy italian restaurant. We have it made here.

Love to all :)

This is true love. Raw love. Uncensored love. At its finest.

What's keeping me up at night?

Lately, I have had a lot going on. I realized that for the past week or so, it has been so hard falling asleep at night. I mean, typically it takes me a lot longer than an average person anyways, but it seems even more evident as of recently. I have a lot of my mind, and especially when I am trying to go to bed, I cannot stop my thoughts from interfering with my precious sleep. I got so fed up one night.. I decided to cave into using a sleeping aid. Nope. Didn't work...that is.. until the next day when I was in class all day long. I couldn't focus, all I wanted to do was sleep and I was extremely consumed by sleep deprevation. So no more sleep aids for this girl. It was worth a shot. Let's just see if this lets up anytime soon..
Ah well.
In other news (!!):
I scored two new jobs! That oughta get me some money in my pocket. I have been feeling so restless, and I missed having a job (and cash flow baby) so I went on a search. And I landed two pretty awesome jobs.
1. I officially work at a Dog kennel (literally 5 minutes away from my house--awesome!) I am really excited for this, it's right down my alley and something that's fun and not too stressful :) I had my first real day at work today..and it was fun! Right now, I am starting out as a dog bather (which I have done before) and then in the summer I will move up to a kennel tech.. I can't wait! I get to play and snuggle with dogs all day. WHAT A LIFE.
2. I have a job as a part-time babysitter/nanny for a wonderful (that's an understatement..more like uber wonderful) family. They have 3 kids-- two 11 year old boys and a 3 year old girl. I am very excited to see what's in store with this!
I just feel so lucky. so so lucky. I come along some pretty great experiences, how could I ever pass them up?! I know, I know..most people are probably thinking, why waste your time with this kind of stuff? work at a place that will push you along your way toward your future career goals. But to me, I'm young. I want to have fun and experience a bunch of different things before I settle into my career. So now is the time, right? I am gonna play, get dirty, laugh and enjoy where I am now at the kennel and with the kids.

Yay for aprons!!!!!

My mom and I made our first aprons today. We have been planning to do this for a while now.. (at least I have!) and it was crazy cool! Momma's quite the seamstress so she was a great helping hand on my first major sewing adventure. I had such a great time, it was so much fun and I felt so accomplished after we were all done. We made three total! All in one day! I was very impressed with us.
Here they are:

I cannot wait to make more. I love them!
More soon on the adventures of Jill....
