A Better Update

I am going to DALLAS in 3.5 weeks for a leadership retreat for Camp... I am SOOO excited because i get to see
-- Amanda Brock and Vivien Ingram
-- Camp Friends
-- the H.S. boys
-- hopefully the Walkers!!!

It shall be a good little break from work work work.

Also, I have applied for my passport and think i'm going to purchase some tickets for the U2 360 tour in Vancouver, BC this october... i think it would be pretty Bad A.

Otherwise, there have been some very ironic coincidences recently, but nothing to post all over the internet :)

The past week in the life of Ashley

Things that have happened in the past week:

-- i've learned a lot about Japanese cuisine
-- finally got paid from both jobs
-- ordered/received my birth certificate so i can finally get my WA license
-- planned and re-planned the visit for the camp girls coming up from Texas on saturday
-- walked up and down a hill of snow to commute from my car to my house

In other news, one of my friends from high school passed away about a week and a half ago. It saddened me to know that I wouldn't be running into him any more. I was a cheerleader with his twin sister and was affected by his death more than I thought I would have been. I realize that this happens to me often, mainly because I ache for the family and friends left behind. It was a freak accident really. Someone did an illegal U-turn on I-10 on the NM/TX border about 10 miles from my house and caused a head-on collision. The woman was only charged with reckless driving, but Pierre was 5 months away from becoming a dad for the first time. Please drive safely and be cautious of others, but also follow those traffic signals and rules... sometimes you just don't see what's literally right in front of you.

So it's has been snowing for the past few days and is supposed to continue through tomorrow. Thus, I have been forced to park at the bottom of my hill and hike to and from my car. It is not that bad except that the incline is as steep as if you were on approaching the first drop on a roller coaster.

All else is good. I have very few hours as compared to what I am used to as far as work goes this week. That's also good so I can get cleaned up and stocked for the girls that are coming in town!! I hope that the weather gets it's act together and isn't so nasty for them.

Last night I went to a 100 year old Catholic church and listened to the priests sing the scriptures. It was awesome, and the acoustics in the building were incredible!!

Miss ya'll. <3 <3 <3

Sorry Talleen, I know how you feel...

Haha, I agree Colleen, I wish everyone would update some more!! I think i check for updates as much as I check my e-mail!

I have been trying to spare you the boring details of my also somewhat monotonous life, but I figure at least Talleen will read it, so i shall write it.

I work Tues-Sat at the Coffee Shop (Tully's) usually 6:30-1 (saturdays I get to go in at 5:30am)

I have worked 4 shifts at BOOM NOODLE, and it is great money. I paid my rent with the tips I made from those shifts, so that's a plus. The training/management difference from Cheddar's is unbelievable. I like BOOM so much better.

Thus, due to my hours, I have been spending a lot of time in my room resting, but not always sleeping, due to my recent addiction to LOST. Yes, I know we are now in the 5th season, but i started watching maybe 2 weeks ago and am in the middle of the 3rd season... so I still have some catching up to do.

The weather is getting better and better, today it is warm and sunny. I hope to go to the Bellevue Art Museum on friday (b/c it's free the first friday of the month) and then if i can find someone to go with me then I might go into Seattle to an art walk that night... you know, get some culture!

Some friends are coming in about 12 days, so i'm super excited for that. Oh and U2's new album comes out tomorrow, so that's pretty awesome as well.

Miss ya'll! <3 ash
