The BIG Day

Okay, so today is the big day! Ellie comes home to our apartment.  And no, if you were wondering, Ellie is not our child, Ellie is our beautiful little kitten.  Boy kitten, at that. But don't judge, it's my cat, and I have the right to name it whatever I want.  We are adopting it from a Humane Society and it's current name is Neville (just like the character in HP - Harry Potter, if you didn't get that). So Neville and Ellie kind of our the same, or at least that's what I'm telling myself.
There has been some "decision" about what to name the cat.  I loved Ellie from the beginning that way I can call it Ellie Bellie (cheesy I know).  N, on the other hand, didn't care at all.  He actually wasn't that big of a fan of cats 2 months ago, but my constant whining for a cat finally broke him and I think that he is more excited about the cat than I am.  He doesn't say anything about the fact that our BOY cat has a GIRL name.  The people I work with on campus feel as though he is going to have personality issues.  They told me that I should just save Ellie for my child.  Okay, so when my baby girl asks my why I picked Ellie as her name the answer will be, "Well actually we wanted to name the cat that, but it was a boy, so you were second choice." What a horrible parent I would be if that actually was the explanation.
I am actually changing my work schedule around this kitten.  I start work earlier, not happy about that, and get done sooner so that the kitten isn't alone too much. Yeah, I will be that parent that will suffocate my kitten.  According to N, I am going to have the whole night to "bug the hell out of the cat." Thanks N.

First Post

Alright. So I have always wanted to start a blog. Not that anyone would read it, but at least I can get my thoughts out.  I think that blogs are so neat. I can talk about ANYTHING!!
That includes my wonderful boyfriend, N, that I live with.  He is amazing and I will probably include him in a lot of my blogs, if I blog anymore.  Our relationship is rocky at times, but we always work through it and have the best make up sex (shhhh, don't tell anyone).  Maybe that is why we fight so much?  But nonetheless, he is the one I want to marry.  Marriage is definitely a topic of decision with us.  Also, some of the girls I work with in my campus job is getting married so I have started to kind of think about what I want in my own.
Also, I have three jobs this summer. As a student still in college, that is a little overwhelming at times, but the paychecks are always nice.  I work at a restaurant that just opened up recently.  It is great at times, but I don't exactly work with the smartest people.  High school students don't exactly have the knowledge that you gain by already having your "first job" behind you.  I also work on campus.  Facebook is my life there, but maybe this blog will move up the ladder in my list of priorities.
Even though my blog is about my life in St. Louis this summer, I am not originally from here.  I am from Iowa, and not like the capital of Iowa, I'm talking about a super small town that is almost in Minnesota.  I love this town, the simplicity is always a nice breathe of fresh air when I go home.  But nonetheless, there is nothing in my town to do.  Luckily, there is a bigger town 20 minutes away that kept me from going insane in high school.
So this is me. Like me? I don't care. Okay, actually I do care, I'm not that big of a bitch that doesn't care about other peoples feelings.  I'm a nice person, and I hope you enjoy my blog.
