I said goodbye to Sewell Direct, where I worked for close to 4 years!
This is the goodbye cake my co-workers made me. Cute, hu? For the first couple years I worked there, they nicknamed me "faxer" because when I they offered me the job after my second interview, the supervisor asked me to fax back a certain form they'd given me to fill out. And I replied "Oh, I don't have a faxer...." HA! Can't say I'm all that embarrassed about my response since in German they are called "Faxer" and I'd only been in the United States for like a month at this point. And besides, we also say print-er, scann-er(not print-machine or scan-machine). After this incident, I learned that it's not called a faxer, but a fax-machine. They still decided to hire me but called me "faxer" for years. Even though I never referred to a fax-machine as a faxer ever again.
So, now that I've said goodbye to Sewell Direct, I no longer have a job: change # 1.
Change #2: Steve and I both GRADUATED! We took a TON of pictures (like everyone else so I don't feel so bad;)
Emma took most of the pictures :) Thanks for coming and thanks for the presents!
I like this one...with the Y in the background!
Poor Grandpa is in the shadow and we didn't even know it. Thanks for coming Grandpa :)
Steve's family was there too. Thanks for coming, guys!
Me and my mom. I think this is a cute picture of both of us :)
and this was like the first time I'd seen Connie in like 2 months. And it was also the last time I'll see Connie in who knows how long!!!! :(
And just a few more pictures.....
Can't forget the diplomas. Not really the real thing, but it's nice they give us something to show off.
And my Linguistics friend, Geneva. (she took Welsh, too!)
Yeah, I pretty much made sure I was in ALL of the pictures. subconsciously of course. Except, look at this...
Moving on...I'm enjoying this change # 2. No school. What a wonderful feeling. I can spend my time doing whatever in the world I want to. Whatever I want, whenever I want. It will probably get old soon here, but it hasn't hit yet. :)
No school, no job...We also said goodbye to family :( Change #3
And then after all this, we moved to Texas! Change #4
Everything's so different! It's a new life!!
