WTF Wednesday... on Thursday (so sue me)

So I'm super late posting this, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't link up or check out our fabulous co-host this week.... because you totally should do both!!

I've been without internet access since I've moved. Major WTF! If it wasn't for my smartphone, I would've lost my sanity all alone up here in Indiana!

And of course, my bad luck followed me to Indiana, so I have so much to write about!! So you must check back soon! Until then, I will be studying. And reading. And doing homework. Alas, the life of a grad student!

Welcome back for another WTF Wednesday! We are still looking for fabulous co-hosts, so if you are interested, please email PETITERAMBLINGS@GMAIL.COM 

So last Tuesday, I took another trip to Indianapolis.  To fill out paperwork and take drug tests and stuff.  You know, the usual.  Well I told my bad luck she couldn't come with me to Indiana.  

But she didn't listen.


I got a late start and didn't get up there until 3am... 4am Eastern time.  I had multiple stops at rest areas along the way.  Why do rest areas have to be so friggin' creepy late at night?!  I checked into my hotel and the creepy guy at the front desk was wayyyy too friendly. 

pretty damn tired looking

I got a pretty cheap good deal on a hotel room and once I got into the room, I figured out why.  WTF is that smell?! Let's just say, my leftover Red Lobster warmed up in the microwave made the place smell better. (Don't ever be that guy that microwaves seafood in the break room at work). 

I slept for 4 hours then headed to the university. I took this picture of Lucas Oil while I passed it for all you Colts fans. You're welcome.  It's crazy to me how close to downtown the stadium is! PS. Football season is almost upon us!!


I parked and started walking toward the science building, and it dawned on me that I will be walking around this campus in less than 2 weeks. WTF was I thinking going back to school?! 

I arrived to fill out my new hire paperwork since I'm being hired as a student employee until my work study position is available.  Since I will be working for IU Health, they wanted a background check, drug screen, immunizations, and two-step TB skin test.  Well you see, I've already had all this stuff done for my program.  So I brought tons of paperwork with me in hopes I wouldn't have to repeat some of this stuff. 

My health appointment to get clearance to work was at 1:45pm, so I didn't even get done with my paperwork.  Once I got there, the nurse let me know that one of my TB tests were actually read within 46 hours instead of within 48 hours, so it was null.  WTF.  So they had to give me another TB test.  And of course they wanted me to come back in 2 days and get someone to read it.  Double WTF. 

Luckily I convinced them to let me get it read a little closer to home. Getting a bazillion TB tests can't be good for you, right?

I left there and went to finish & return my new hire paperwork and noticed red spots all over it.  WTF?!  Apparently in the middle of shuffling papers, I gave myself a massive papercut.  And bled all over it.  At least I've had all my immunizations. 


I also went to get my student ID so I could be official and get student discounts.  

starting to sink in!

Then I went to the financial aid office.  The place where students go to die.  


I've been having the worst a difficult time getting the remaining funding needed to make sure I can survive while in graduate school and the financial aid office had not helped me at all.  But it seems like seeing people in person and crying gets things done, so that's what I did.  And I got a phone call the following day with results.  


So after this day, I totally deserved ice cream.  But eating a frosty while driving requires a bib. Bobby says I'm messy.  I don't know what he's talking about...

Don't worry, I pulled over at a rest stop before I took this picture

2 more days and I'm an official Indiana resident!!  MAJOR WTF!

I've been a busy bee

Omigoodness where is the time going?!  I move in 5 days!!! I still have practically my entire house to pack! Ack!!  To give you an idea of what I've been up to, here's some pictures!

Tuesday - I made a trip to Indy to finish paperwork for job & school.  That's a whole other story! Check back for WTF Wednesday to read about it!  WTF Wednesday is my new linkup with Petite Ramblings every Wednesday!  If you are interested in being a co-host, please email PETITERAMBLINGS@GMAIL.COM



Wednesday - I made a trip to Atlanta with my sister.  We visited Buford Highway Farmer's Market, an Asian bakery, Atlantic Station, and IKEA (duh). 

my beautiful niece at the Farmer's Market

the Farmer's Market seafood department was HUGE!!

we got some candy from Russia!

and I picked up some Belgium beer

Mozart Bakery - yum!!


Thursday - I returned my rental car, picked up my hybrid that was rocking new tires, & then ran errands.... in Nashville. So if you were paying attention, that was Indianapolis, Atlanta, and Nashville in 3 days.  JET.SETTER.

Friday - I don't even remember what I did. Is that bad?

Saturday - We kicked it at the Nashville Predators Beerfest, shopped some downtown, and then ate at the Flying Saucer.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
To start off our first WTF link-up, I thought I would show you a few of the recent pictures I've taken on my cell phone. There's only some WTF moments that can only be explained with a picture.  And if you're in the middle of a Subway trying to sneak a picture of a total stranger - not like that actually happened or anything - make sure you turn the sound off on your phone so that no one hears that "shutter" sound.  That would be awkward. 


I may or may not have taken this picture in the middle of a Subway. This girl had the NASTIEST looking feet.  And if you have nasty feet, just put some socks on.  I mean, WTF.  Scrub yo' feet.
 
 I'm a die-hard Alabama fan, so when I found this in the backseat of my car, I said whaaaaat the fuckkkkk?! This definitely doesn't belong in my car! The owner of the koozie in question is lucky I like her, because I should've ran over it with my car. Now that would've been funny.

Since I'm getting ready for city living, I've been picking up doggie necessities here & there.  When I saw these, I immediately thought WTF?!  This poop bag dispenser looks like a giant tampon. Not going to hang a giant tampon from my leash.  Nope, not gonna do it. 

 I was driving to work last week and looked ahead to see this.  WTF!? I contemplated turning around.  I definitely didn't want to drive under this death cloud.  When I got under it, it made everything turn pitch black.  But luckily, it was barely causing any rain and I survived to tell about it. 

WTF?!  I guess Santa Claus needs to go to the doctor too.  And he uses a cell phone.  I wonder if that's long distance? And check out that shirt!!


I hope you enjoyed Kelly & my new link-up!  If you're interested in co-hosting, email Kelly at PETITERAMBLINGS@GMAIL.COM!

My weekend... picture style!

Linking up with Sami to tell you dahlings my weekend in pictures.  Because I'm lazy and have alot of shit to do this week and don't have time to write you guys out a nice pretty post.

Friday - I started my stretch of unemployment. My employees got me some cake and I packed up my desk in a little box.  My whole life is being packed up in boxes which is sorta depressing.



Saturday - I went to visit some old work friends to see them before moving.  We had a little girls night.  Chillaxin' on the back porch and just talking about boys, shoes, and a little bit of everything. 



Sunday - I did alot of laundry (who wants to see a picture of that?!) and got my things in order for the rest of the week.  I also got to watch some of this: 


Don't you love watching puppies make their beds?!

On the agenda for this week:
Monday - new tires & driving to Indianapolis
Tuesday - drug test and paperwork for my new "job"
Wednesday - road trip to Atlanta for my sister's birthday
Thursday - nothing yet, but pretty sure I will be EXHAUSTED! 

Also for this week is this awesome giveaway I'm hosting.  And if you're reading this, you should be following me anyway.  So get entered, yo!  And prepare your post for mine & Kelly's new link-up on Wednesday!!
