My graduation is tomorrow.  I am so excited!  Commencement is on Saturday and I am singing at it with the choir.  It will be awesome.  The guest speaker is Robert Rodriguez!  There will be fireworks shot off from the tower after the ceremony.

Be your own travel agent!

We are going to Orlando next week and I found some really great deals online.  I frequently plan vacations that I would love to go on, but can't afford yet.  I find great deals all the time on Hotwire and Kayak
Hotwire has very low prices but has the disadvantage of not knowing exactly what hotel you will be getting; their star rating system is pretty reliable.  Kayak searches hundreds of travel websites for you to find the best deal and will give you a link directly to the website you wish to use.  On both Hotwire and Kayak, you can sort the results by price, star rating, location, etc.

While trying to find a good deal on a flight, I recently discovered Cheap Airlines.  By using Cheap Airlines, we saved about $150 more than we would have by using Kayak and several other travel sites.

On the move...

We are moving! Where? We don't know yet.  I take that back, we are moving all of our stuff into storage.  We will be going on a working vacation (work for Grant and vacation for me) for about a month. After that, who knows where we will live.  I have to find a job and I would like to live somewhere near my work.

We started packing this week and have gotten 33 boxes packed and stacked in the garage and almost all the laundry, including blankets and curtains, is finished.  I think this will be the smoothest move yet!

Hopefully, we will have plenty of help when it comes time to load up everything and move into the storage unit and again when it comes time to load up everything and move into a new place (wink wink, nudge nudge).

It is finished!

I am finally done with college.  I am in disbelief!  I have been ready for this for a long time.  A new chapter of my life is about to begin and I can't wait because in that chapter, I will be getting paid.  Please pray that I find a good job.

1 week!

I can't believe it is almost over.  I have a ton of homework to do before my last seminar class!
