Class Ring!

I finally ordered my class ring for my masters! I am beyond excited about this! I got a traditional ring as my high school class ring. When I saw this one, it just seemed so adult and modern. The stone will be red, a garnet, the school color and my birthstone.

The school offers the ugliest gold signet ring with their seal on it. As much as I wanted a ring with their seal, as it's really very nice, I hated that $400 ugly gold thing. And yeah, $400!! Not happening. This one is less than half of that! It will of course say 2012 and Sara on the side with my full name on the inside. It takes a while to make it, so I wont have it until the end of May or beginning of June. But I can wait. And the seal I love? I'm getting that on my graduation annoucements. Also a made by Sara creation, with the help of Shutterfly. The school's graduation announcements are outragiously expensive and of course can't be ordered until July. So I found a picture online and Shutterfly and I made a wonderful card. I ordered a proof so I can make sure it's perfect and will order more when it arrives.

I didn't go to my undergrad commencement, I was too busy moving to Kansas with my new husband. :) And sadly, I wont be able to go to this commencement either. Once I graduate in July, I will be moving straight home to find a job. But a job and a future mean more to me than walking in some ceremony. I cannot wait to gradaute and start our new chapter. This degree means that Joe can ETS. And that is the most important thing right now.

Long Weekend

While I feel guilty about quitting my job occasionally, this weekend was not that time. Joe had a 4-day of course and I got to spend all of it with him. It's becoming a reality that I will be graduating and moving home soon so the time together now means a lot to me.

And... Joe is transferring brigades tomorrow. We should know of there is another deployment in our future soon. He keeps telling me the odds are very low, but it is the Army so I feel like I should stay on my toes.

Anyway, hope you and yours had a great Easter weekend.

PSA- Poor Neighbors

How to be a dick when living in close proximity to others.

1. Make sure you blare your wannabe gangster rap music at all times from your open porch door.

2. Throw your cigarette butts in the yard.

3. Throw chicken bones in the yard that all the neighbors use and the dogs choke on.

4. Throw an end table out of your loving room window at 10pm on a random Tuesday. Make sure there are shards of glass in that yard that kids play in.

5. Pretend like you can't park your BMW in a single parking spot. Park so you are at least taking up two spots. I bet you could occupy 3 spots if you try really hard.

6. When your girl friend du jour brings her dog over do not put it on a leash or pick up its shit.

7. Have awesomely loud parties on a random Wednesday that last until midnight and make people call the cops about the noise. You'll show them that a cop can't stop your party lifestyle next Wednesday.

8. During one of the parties, have a drunk friend make a scene outside and smash the windshield of your BMW with a baseball bat. Make sure your car alarm is on.

9. Sit on your porch acting like the wannabe gangster you are and cat call the wives of Soldiers. Then get super defensive when said Soldier yells at you about it.

10. Blare wannabe gangster music from your car in the parking lot and scream over the music. Make sure you do this for at least an hour and a half.

And always remember-- You know people want to live next to a dick like you, so let it all out. You are awesome, everyone knows you're an awesome wannabe gangster dick. The neighbors just need to get with the times. They are the problem, not you.
