Job – Great.
Boyfriend – Great.
Apartment – Great.
Church – Great.
Those are the easy things. And I can explain:
I work at the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office. Which I didn’t have a clue about before I started the job. I’ll have been there for a year on April 2nd. I love being downtown in the middle of everything. Lexington is seeming less and less like the big city I thought it was compared to Mt. Washington. The office prosecutes all of the felony cases in Fayette County. I do all of the evidence for the cases, I have to copy it and pass it on to defense attorneys. Obviously, it can get pretty exciting at times. I sat behind a murderer the other day! EEEKK! My technical title is “Communications Coordinator”, so I also do social media stuff and the website (where my degree finally comes into play). I actually just re-designed the whole website- www.LexingtonProsecutor.com – if you want to check it out!
My lease is up at the end of December, and I’m not sure what’s going to happen at that point. I’ve been casually looking at houses, but that’s making me a little nervous. Living with Stacey has been great, but I’m feeling about ready to live by myself. And she is still with Nick, yes. He’s on his way over right now for pizza. 🙂 We all hang out all the time, and Paul is super cool about it.
He’s all-around super-cool. His family has a “farm” too, really it’s more like a regular farm. haha. Paul’s no longer interested in Vet school, so we’re kind of dealing with that right now. It’s looking like his next endeavor will be becoming a “partner” (back to the quotation marks again) in an already existing landscaping company that’s trying to expand. Small business is scary, but they’re all excited about it.
Ally, any news on Teach for America stuff?? When you say next year, what does that mean? August? January? I’m just saying…. Lexington it a great place to settle for a while!
Paul and I just started to get involved at Southland. The 608 church, ya know? We’re working in the nursery, Paul’s doing some work with delivering furniture donations, and I’m trying to plug in to the prison ministry. I think some of my connections at work are going to be helpful for it.
Someone was telling me the other day that they paid someone on Etsy $15.00 to design a wedding shower invitation. She just picked out a design that was posted on the site and had the information changed to fit the event. I was like – I could do that! So, I’m starting an Etsy shop. Haven’t thought of a name yet, so any suggestions are welcome.
By the way, Kentucky weather has royally sucked for the past few weeks. Be glad you’re both missing it!
And one more thing:
