First I want to say... today was a better day. After yesterday though, anything would have been better!
Secondly... I have been asked several times lately what I do in my job, so I want to explain, but don't want to tell too much in case there's some SUPER CREEP BALL (like the man from my last post) stalking my blog! I am the Associate Director of Admissions for a small, private college in GA. I like my job, but it's not what I want to do forever. I eventually want to teach and I am in the process of working on that goal now. This week, I am in TN attending college fairs. Yeah, you remember those... where 50 colleges pile in a gymnasium and set up a table with info and then you come stroll around and hang with your BFF or BF and check out what the colleges have to offer! (yeah right!) I will only tell you I am in east TN, no more, because what I am about to tell you is some of the funniest/strangest stuff I have ever encountered at a college fair. See typically, I only recruit transfer students, so I haven't covered a high school fair in a long time! This morning, I was at, well we will call it "Countryville High School (CHS)." Being an out of state college, it's tough to recruit here because they do offer the Hope Scholarship for TN students to stay in state. So that is a huge disadvantage for us as a GA school, but no worries. Ok, well I first want to point out that we have a huge board on our table that has info on the college on it. Right in the middle is a HUGE picture of the state of GA (and surrounding states) with a big star where we are located. The question of the day was "Where are you located?" DUH!! :) Also, might I point out how many Dolce & Gabbana and Prada knock-off purses I saw today? I am assumming they were knock-offs because this wasn't the kind of school where you wouldd see designer anything! But hey points for them for knowing what D&G and Prada are at least! (Man, that sounded ugly-sorry!) There's just something about those brands that don't mix with camo and shirts that say "Redneck." (I hope no one takes offense to that-if you do, I'm really sorry!)
And for your entertainment, and mine, here are the other wonderful questions of the day...
- "Y'all got truck driving?" (his accent was so thick I had to ask him to repeat himself. I mean I am country and have a good ol' southern accent, but wow!)
- (student is filling out an information card) "How do you spell Psychology?" (friend answers) "It starts with an S duh!"
- "What is accounting?" (to which I replied with the easiest answer I could come up with for this guy- "One thing they do is taxes. You know when your parent's have their taxes done?" (I realize this answer is very vague and not a great answer but trust me, had you met this guy, you would understand completely) (he replied) "No, what are taxes?"
- "I'm either interested in culinary or pre-med, y'all got those?"
- "How do you spell 'theatre'?"
So you see, the day becomes pretty long after questions like that :) I am glad to be going home tomorrow though. I have lots to do before hubs birthday Friday! :) I made us reservations at a place in Atlanta. (it's a secret) It's a new place for both of us so I am excited! It will be fun! And then Saturday we are celebrating with friends, but I don't know what to do about that either. Maybe have people over? Maybe go out to eat somewhere low key? I am so dang indecisive! More on the hubs birthday Friday :)

PS- I can't tell you my weight loss officially yet, because my Dr's appt isn't until tomorrow, but I promise to post as soon as I get back to the office from the Dr. And a little hint: I am pretty sure it's gonna be a BIG loss (so says my WW scale). See, with the program I am with, I weigh in every two weeks, but I will be weighing in weekly after this week but it will be on Thursday. But that's ok. I will let you all know how it goes :)
