I started a work only blog. It's all my stories from work. So far I have two and they're funny. I'd like to keep it light hearted and not let it be a venting place.
It's called Tales of a Receptionist and it's all here: http://recepting.blogspot.com/
It's offical I’ve managed to change my name twice in the last month and a half. First I was Renee Rogers. Then I decided to get married and become Renee Lorenz. So I legally changed it. Now at work I’m officially Renee Lentz. I don’t know how or why but I was sick Monday and when I came back there was Renee Lentz (half day) on the company calendar. I thought hmmm…must be coincidence. (Because there is another Rene here I just don’t know his last name). Then I saw it today…all the days off for my vacay…Renee Lentz…I don’t know how they did it. I mean Lorenz and Lentz aren’t even kind of close….I mean sure they both start with an L and end with a Z but really that’s it. I think it’s hilarious. Good thing all the legal things say Lorenz (like my pay check)….I wonder how long I can keep this up?
So I'm at work right now, as a receptionist. One of my main duties is to answer the phones (as most receptionists would do). Well there's a slight problem with that right now seeing as how the phone lines are down. I mean they're working to reboot everything but still, no calls. And seeing as how I already finished my other work this morning...I litterally have nothing to do...on the plus side this IS the quietest I have ever heard this office before 5pm!

Wow....I didn't think this still existed...I got married...I got a job at G&G Outfitters in Lanham, MD. It's a receptionist job and it's not at all fullfilling. I feel like I'm doing nothing with my life. I sit and answer phones all day and do mindless paperwork. I mean really...I got a college degree for this?! Ben keeps pushing me to apply for the fourth grade teaching job but I don't think I'm cut out to be a teacher... so I don't think that's right for me. I just feel like I don't know where I fit in yet in this world. Which really is a sucky feeling. And what's worse is that it seems everyone around me seems to know what they want and should do...LAME! Anyway, that's my life right now I guess...

So I've graduated from college and it kind of feels like my life is just on hold. Mainly because I have about a thousand decisions that I need to make but I'm just too afraid to make. I am moving back home in July or Aug. and I'm going to be taking a class at the Community College so I can stay on my parents insurance while I figure out what I'm going to do with my life...HOORAY! Remember that one time I was all, yeah! I want to be an acting major! Dear God what was I thinking?! Anyway, I've been thinking it over (and talking it over with Ben) and I think that it's a good idea to take some classes that would get me to the next steps of earning a second degree. So I think that I might be going into the field of social work and if acting doesn't work out I can work...socially! HA HA! Anyway, this fall I'm going to take probably a night class of Introduction to Sociology and see how I like that. After all nothing is set in stone yet right? My next step is trying to figure out where I'm going to work. I'm taking the next two months off though...I think I deserve it. Plus I'll be leaving on vacations with Ben and then my family at the end of June to the end of July. So I can't really start a job for a month then ask for a month off...I don't think it really works out so well that way. So we shall see...at least I have plenty of think time.
In other news... Ben and I are doing extraordinarily well. We are doing exciting things (nothing too exciting though...everyone needs to calm down). And we keep talking about the future and marriage and being together...so...yeah...that's exciting.

Remember that one time I took my winter jackets home because it was May? ...Now remember that one time that I needed my winter jackets in the middle of May?...WTF Mother Nature?! WTF?!

Walking into the center for the arts and hearing Naoko's laugh makes me uber happy!

I am going back and forth with being fine about this whole graduation thing and freaking out about it. I at least have a plan for next year...however the plan is not set in stone and dear god where am I going to work?! I don't even have a car! *sigh* I don't think I want to grow up. I feel that it is just easier to be a student for the rest of my life. At least when you're a student people expect you to be poor and they understand why you are poor.
I also feel like a slacker next to my boyfriend who has applied for, at the very least, three teaching jobs. I have not applied to one place. I was looking at the job listing in my area and have come to the realization that I am not qualified to do anything. All the jobs need this degree or that degree and if they don't they need at least two years of experience...dear god I have no experience for a full time ob for one year...I am going to be stuck at a job that a high school drop out would have. I am going to be working for people who are younger than me aren't I? I wouldn't have a problem with that if I weren't 22! *sigh* I guess I just have to hope for the best...it's hard though...

Got Scott Alan's cd off of iTunes last night. I think he may be on my top 5 composer's now. I am in LOVE with the music and there are some songs that I would adore to sing at an audition...one in particular that would be perfect for me but alas he doesn't have a piano score for the public...YET!!!
