Houston Bound

Originally uploaded by dtseawel.

To be completely honest, I hate packing. I really don't know of anyone who enjoys this process. It starts off with a hunt for free boxes. All I have been able to think about lately is where to find these things. I hit the jackpot last week at a local dollar store. I got a bazzilion boxes near their dumpster, brought them to my apartment, set them in the living room... and that is where they have been sitting. I have made a promise to myself though that I will start packing today; we will see how that goes.

I am making the official move to Houston on Saturday morning, so this packing thing, as much as I don't want to do it, will have to be done by then, ha. I will try and keep this thing updated to let you all know what is going on with me.

My Great Grandpa's 97th Birthday!

Originally uploaded by dtseawel.

Today, my family and I took a 1 1/2 hour trip to Pocahontas, Arkansas to visit my dad's grandpa who had his 97th birthday. It was really cool to be able to hang out with some people who I hadn't seen in a long time and others who I had never met before. We ended up eating at a BBQ place with about 16 of my relatives on my dad's side; it was great. (The picture above is my dad, my grandfather, Erica, me, my great grandfather, and Dustin.

Its official, I have a car of my own now. Dustin and I have shared a car since we turned 16 which has been fine, but now that I am moving to Houston we sort of have to have our own.

It is a 99' Toyota Camry with 71,000 miles on it. I am pretty stinkin excited about it and I hope it will be a reliable car for years to come. As long as it gets me to work and back, gets good gas mileage, and doesn't blow up, I will be pretty happy with it.

Well... I think I am done with school for a while, I hope. In 5 short years I was able to double major in Information Technology and Vocational Ministry and earn an MBA. Hopefully, this will be the end of my formal education for a while.

In two weeks from now, I will be moving to Houston, TX and starting my first real job. I am pretty excited about it and I will try to keep yall informed about the exciting, random stuff that I am sure will happen over the next several months as I settle down in "H-town."

Croquet, the gentlemen's sport

We had a bunch of people over to my parent's house the weekend before graduation to eat and hang out. It turned out to be really fun. We cooked out and played volleyball, croquet, football, and frisbee. Dustin took a projector, a screen, and a huge speaker from the Media Center where he works so we could watch a movie outside after it got dark. We ended up just watching the TNT Club video that Jeremy Denis put together. After that, we all hung out around the fire in the backyard and ate smores. It was a great night and I am glad everyone got to come.
