I'm glad you got to see your nephews! They sound adorkable.

My good news: I passed the test at the BMV for a learner's permit. I may be nearly a quarter of a century old, but it's not too late to learn to drive!

^congrats!! <3
I found out today I get to keep my job and wasn't part of the recent mass let-go at one of my jobs. It's a huge relief not having to worry about job hunting and being able to pay bills while I get the rest of my life together lol

Our roommate (bf's nephew's gf) officially started labor a couple of days ago though its been very slow going, as of last night she made it to 7 minutes between her contractions. The delivery nurse (nephew's estranged mother) came to check on her just a few minutes ago and they are heading off to the hospital, baby is expected to make his way into the world sometime very late tonight or tomorrow morning. Bf is about to be a Great-Uncle :3

A healthy baby boy, Hunter, was born at 10:27 am Jan. 8th! Little mom and baby weren't released until almost 1am yesterday. Little mom had HELLP syndrome and then a complication called DIC after three blood transfusions her blood pressure and platelet count were still going all over the place but they found the right meds for her and sent her home with them. Yesterday was her first day home alone with the baby (for 3 hours since nephew doesn't leave for work until noon then I come home after school) and she did fine with the little one.

He was 7 pounds 2 ounces with a head full of dark brown hair his blue eyes are turning dark so we're betting in a few weeks they'll be dark brown just like his dad's side of the family. Mom is of welsh and irish decent, paler than a page of white computer paper and orange hair, dad is half white half mexican and dad passes as full white from how light his skin is, but baby was born about 4 shades darker picking up more of the hispanic genetics from dad's side.

Dad is a tall giant of a 19 yr old so we all expected baby to be big especially since mom is short and very thin but nope, baby is a tiny lil dude. He hardly cries and he grunts in his sleep...so cute!

Considering my current issues from the rant board I'm going to try to post at least one positive thing a day here.

From yesterday: my supervisor gave me a surprise visit in my classroom (I'm a 7th grade writing tutor) and gave me awesome feed back that she loved what I was doing with my kids!

Today: a small win but a win nonetheless, one of my students who has been skipping was caught and walked back to tutorials and he actually had a good time in class with us today after that so maybe he wont see it as such a bad thing anymore.

Also from today: my friend Tesni (Tezzbuzz if anyone may remember her from her dolling days) loved my hufflepuff avatar I'm currently using here and has made the suggestion of a slytherin one so I've offered do make her one badge and all! I love having projects!

Yay! Those are all great things! Happy to hear about the baby too :) HELLP syndrome is no joke, but I'm glad they caught it.

Boyfriend won tickets on the radio this morning to Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line. He's going to take his nephew to luke bryan because that's the better day for the two to go based on their work schedules and I get to go see Florida Georgia Line who is bf's absolute favorite :D

I got first option on concerts but I know his nephew is only ok-ish with FGL so I'm letting the boys enjoy one of their favorite artist together even though I love LB too.

So excited we've been trying to win tickets after purchasing for Chainsmokerz and Zac Brown band since Bf's work schedule changed and he's now able to attend the weekday shows.

I GOT MY PROFILE ON MY COMPUTER TO WORK AGAIN! I DIDN'T LOSE ANYTHING! I AM SOOOO HAPPY!

I also love the fact that I was able to figure it out and my husband could not. XD He's more computer savvy than I am. *dances around giddy*

Idk if this counts as good news but to me it does.
I finally told my sister about possibly[more like definitely] having Chronic depression.
It's hard for me to express myself in RL and share emotions sometimes. Sadness is one I cannot express well
at all. I've had it for a couple of years now. 2-4 years now at least. But I felt so relieved being able to tell her.
My sister is pretty much my best friend.

I'm happy for you! Talking to someone is super important. Especially about something so serious. Props to you on your bravery and hopefully it will help having someone to confide in (:

It was so hard for me. Many times I wanted to tell her but I just couldn't bring myself until
she and I were talking about depression[we both have it] and she kind of put some pieces together after I told her.
She dropped out of HS compared to me which I dropped out in Junior high and she said it made so much sense.

I'm home! I've been at a group home for the past 4 months but I'm home now and its so nice. My brother is getting married in less than a week so I'll be pretty busy until then. But after that I hope to be more active. Also we sort of got adopted by a cat. His name is Weasly because hes a ginger. Hes very sweet and lovey.

Thanks Melian. We love the girl hes marrying. The cat really is sweet he just showed up one day we think someone just dropped him off here thinking oh he can be a farm cat. It happens all the time. people dont realize once a cat is a pet they stay a pet, its not nice too just abandon them.

Congrats! My brother is getting married too! He proposed to his girlfriend of seven years this past May at a Giants game against the team they played at the first game he took her to. Their wedding is next September.

Also, on a personal note, still working on finding a new job to afford to move out, but for now I'm making enough to afford my first car! Got it last month. A 2016 Honda Fit. I named it The Milano.
