text update, by amanda

Dear Internet,

So I just posted like, um, a big truck load of photographs. I should be working, seeing as how I am in work doing overtime (hrm... to claim this last half hour of posting on my overtime or to not claim it... decisions decisions). I don't know. I'm sure that maybe only Becky might see it, and even then it's probably a fluke or something. I like blogger, I just have a hundred other things I post and lord knows my photos are everywhere.

So. What is new since August 2005. Well I'm in Happy Valley-Goose Bay. That's a pretty big difference. Let's see how I can do with a nutshell update. Spent the summer drinking and hanging with the girls living off my parents, it was sweet. Then summer ended and I still didn't have a job so I moved home. Boourns. After being home for two months (please note I've been finished school since APRIL good lord) I got a job to come here aka Middle of Nowhere. I left St. George's on Nov 3, spent the night in Lewisport, hopped the ferry on the 4th, and Got here on Nov 6 after 47 hours. I remember the ferry pulling in and then driving to the hosptial to get my apartment keys. Like, what in god's name am I at. But it worked out. I'm in child protection which could be better but I'm hopeful to hang out for a while longer and move in to something different. But all things considered I'm grasping the ropes in this stuff anyway, it's a lot easier with time. Meeting new people, but missing everyone terribly.

In four days I leave for 3 weeks vacation, and I tell you I can't wait. I'm at work now, updating files (aka updating blogger?). I have almost 14 hrs of overtime last week alone. OOO can't wait for the paycheck this next time around. I'm looking forward to going home. Most of my friends are scattered. But I'll get to see Becky and Danny before they leave for the North Pole!! (hehe). Can't wait to see you guys!! Plus my other friends who are flopping around St. John's and my sister and yeah. Two weeks home, a week in St. John's and a few days to chillax here before I start work again.

Anyway, that's it. Another update in a year or so I guess.

Random August Post!


My profile has had 90-something page views!
I'm sure at least 50-60 have been me :P haha.

I started this to roam Becky's wedding site and make comments...
so I feel I should mention that she got married last weekend!
I went out and it was all wonderful! =) Congrats Becky and Danny!

Anyway, random photo post again.
I don't have my weekend/Burgeo photos resized or anything yet.
Maybe some day down the road I'll put some up.

random update with photos!

I know they are choppy looking... I had to resize them
but not like "officially" just in the HTML so they look unclear
Maybe all that is a little unclear... nevermind =)

Much love, Amanda

Random Thanksgiving Weekend Post

Happy Thanksgiving!
I know it's not until tomorrow, but we're having turkey today!

I don't even know if anyone knows this exists. I feel that one tiny post is not enough to make it look nice so I'll add another. Also known as, procrastination from SW.5720 ethics midterm study. My mother is out for a few days. She drove in yesterday until Tuesday or Wednesday I think. Part of me hopes Tuesday so I can try to do work. But part of me hopes Wednesday so we can go do some shopping on Tuesday!

It would be kind of neat to have some sort of blog like this and family members could read up about you. Something like maybe and everyone can create accounts and friend one another. Oh my... too technologically/internet advanced for most families I suppose!

Anyway. I have something going on in another window, I was trying to post a picture, just to see what it was like. I have no idea what is happening or how it works. So above or below maybe there could be a sunset picture from July I took when I was in St. George's for our family reunion. Plus also I should track my mom down in the house somewhere.

Testing that photo posting thing...

St. George's, Stadium Hill - July 31, 2004.

Just a hello!


Crap. I typed a paragraph and lost it. Boo. Anyway... I was just going to type a paragraph about why I'm here. Becky (my good friend from my social work class) invited me to join/see her wedding blog. But the invite link didn't work. So being the keener that I am I thought "Hrm, maybe I have to have an account for an invite to work!" ... so here I am, with my created account. But the invite still wouldn't work so I'm just going to have to get her to re-invite me or something.

Well maybe I'll type here from time to time. Maybe.
