Another Update Schumpdate


Well I sure haven’t blogged in a while, so let me give you the usual excuse… has been hectic. I’ll give you an outline/bulleted list, sound good?

  • I moved with my twin brother and my parents from Baldwin City to Gardner at the beginning of July. Therefore, all of June was filled with pack the house and prepping to move. June was a crazy month to say the least, but it was full of beautiful change.

  • July came and as I stated the first weekend we moved.

  • The second weekend my family and I went down to Wichita to celebrate my older brother Bryan being ordained as a pastor. You can just call him Rev now, no big deal. (pictures are from my sister-in-laws blog, Ashley Dunham. Check her blog out she is such a cutie!)

  • The third weekend was my birthday weekend. I turned 21, crazy I know. I had a wonderful weekend celebrating with my best friend, Ainsley and some wonderful friends.

  • The fourth weekend I helped take part in throwing a surprise birthday for a wonderful close friend of mine, Stormie Colvin. She is lovely and her birthday July 15th just one day after mine. She turned 18 and is wise beyond her years. I love this girl! Her and I went on a date Saturday afternoon to the miniature toy museum, lunch on the plaza, and a stop at a pet shop to enjoy some cute little puppies. Then, I took her to Hope Alive to her surprise party. It was a blast, full of pictures, food, and love/appreciation for Stormie.

  • The fifth weekend in July I went up to Manhattan, KS to help my older sister Laura and her husband Mark organize their apartment. They are expecting a beautiful baby boy in December 2011. They wanted some help in organizing their life to welcome this bundle of greatness. So me and Ainsley drove 2 hours to them and enjoyed organizing, cleaning, and hanging out with my wonderful siblings.

  • Now we are to August, which has been somewhat uneventful. The first two weekends I have been helping my mother at Moonlight Elementary setting up her fourth grade classroom. It is some serious hard work, being a teacher is hard. But it was fun hanging out with my mom and helping her get stuff done.

  • It is Tuesday and before I know it will be the third weekend of August. What do I have planned for this weekend you ask? Well on Thursday I am leaving work early to get my wisdom teeth removed. It is going to be intense, because my teeth are unlike most people who get theirs out while their wisdom teeth are still under the gum or just slightly broken through the gum. My wisdom teeth have been coming in for a little over 3 years. So they are currently sitting just as tall as my molars. Therefore my roots are WAY too deep. So it’s going to be a little more intense of a recovery I suppose, which sucks, but whatever. I got to do what I got to do, you know?


Well there you have it another Update Schumpdate! J So until next time when I post about something other than catching up my blog up, have a wonderful end of the summer and say a few alliterations in a day it will make you smile more. Tah Tah for now!

Perusing Google


Spring is in the air, so for me that comes with an upper respiratory infection, a sinus infection, and a double ear infection. Exciting, eh? More like bleh!!!! :/ Oh well, I am getting better thanks to the help of sleep and Walgreen’s pharmacy and their high powered drugs! 🙂 lol

 So anyway, I have been thinking lately about planning, thinking ahead, the future, particularly my future. I have been getting so caught up lately about this idea of the future and what I want it to be like; what am I going to do? Where am I going to be? Where do I want to go? Who do I want to be with? …. the who, what, when, where, why, and how of life. This is usual for a 20 year old, right? Well whether it is usual or not, it sure is frustrating. I think I annoy my best friend with so many questions, comments, concerns, and ideas of the future.

 I so badly want to move out of state, I just want to jump feet first into an ocean of newness and adventure. I tell myself I am going to do it, I am going to take a leap of faith and just go! I tend to find myself perusing Google for various cities to possibly live in and various jobs to apply for. I am constantly texting and calling my best friend saying hey whatcha think about this, or what about this city, you want to live here or there? She just laughs and says possibly, possibly, possibly.

 My plan or idea so far is that I want to move in the early spring of 2012. Whether it is just moving out of my parents in Baldwin City to like Olathe or move out of state to North Carolina, I just want to move forward. I believe that moving is that next big step for me. The mini steps before that is to of course save money, a new car, and be debt free. But it’s crazy for me to think that in a year I could be living in North Carolina or New Hampshire or Oregon or North Dakota. Wherever I end up, it is exciting because I will be out of Kansas and trying something new for the first time! Yippy!!!

 Someday I will be leaving Kansas, yes it will be a sad, hard, exciting, scary, wonderful day, but I will not be gone for good! I love Kansas, especially Kansas City! It’s my home, it’s me! I love the roads, I love the weather (as frantic and retarded as it is most of the time), I love the people, I love the comfort, I love the shops, I love the nooks and crannies that I escape to on a rough day, and I love the excitement and the calmness that Kansas City offers. I love this place, I truly believe that even though I may leave for awhile and live and take root somewhere else I will end up in the great state of Kansas.

 So that is a random, scattered taste of what is going in this weird jumbled head of mine. I hope and pray that someday I will look back at this and will have actually done this. Time will tell, I suppose. 🙂

So until then, here’s to perusing Google and pondering!

 Friday cheers everyone!
