I think we might be grown-ups now

Jason is officially Dr. Matthews! (Dr. Matthews-ERRRR. I never get sick of that joke.)

He RAWKED his PhD dissertation, and pretended to be embarrassed while his fan club held up signs and took too many pictures.
Not gonna lie, I'm pretty proud of that sign. Even Jason liked it... secretly.

Also, finally, I got a more career-related job!

Just kidding.
TWO career-related jobs. 

For the first, I improve lighting in University of Oregon's classrooms (I'm going to be in nerd heaven), and for the second, I get to do graphic design! I diyeee of excitement. 50 hours a week, here I come!

Oh, and also since I've talked to you last, I've survived:

  • 30 days of eating strictly "paleo diet" with 60 other people from my gym,
  • two (small) car accidents,
  • a family member getting in a not-so-small car accident (she's recovering well, thank GOODNESS)
  • a trip to the ER of my own,
  • and finding out we're getting kicked out of "student housing." (For not being "students" anymore, or some nonsense like that. Pshh.) 
  • And then, even MORE exciting stuff I can't even tell you about yet.  I need a muzzle.

Oh yes, it's storytime soon.
It's been a wild ride, this past month. Time to pat myself on the back and go take a nap.
Thanks for hanging in there, amigos.

Congrats to you both!! Holding for the next story...

Sam said...

Yeah Jason! Did he get my gift yet?

The Woven Moments said...

Ummm.... you are a young, happily-married woman. And you just told us you have "news" that you can't share yet.

Dare I ask?

April said...

Thanks amigos!

Oh Caitlin, there are SO many stories. I have some serious work cut out for me.

Hi eef & Jamie! Looking forward to checking out your blogs : )

Sam, I'll check the office tomorrow.

& Ryan, I KNEW somebody would ask. No worries. Just something that I need to work on a little bit first : )

my honest answer said...

Congrats to Dr Matthews! And you have to give us more deets... you can't leave us hanging like that.

All the best to your injured family member.

Yipeeee! Congratulations to him! And yes, what happened? ER?

Nanoinfinity said...

Wow, that sure was a time you had. Super big fun congrats to the new Doctor, and I'm very glad everything else turned out okay.

(Except the housing thing. That's just stupid. Maybe you should go back to school so you can keep your place. All of a sudden you just really, really, really want to critique some mid-century puritanical free verse poetry, right? Yeah, thought so.)

Now go take a nap (it sounds like you need one big time!)

Not so congrats for the accidents and the house-booting - yikes! Hope everyone's ok. Looking forward to the even more exciting stuff :)
