New Beginnings

So my last blog post entitled The One Blog Post of June was probably the worst decision I have made all June. Hence, the blog post you are reading. (Thank you for reading.)

Today was my first day of work. I mentioned it in my last blog post that I turned in my 2 weeks and last Tuesday was my last day with the company. No more sellin cell phones. Now a few of you have asked me what I do now and rather than explain it over Twitter or Facebook or Text I figured it would be easiest to blog it up.

Basically, I am self-employed along with my Dad. Along with my dad I am selling Life Insurance and Annuities to teachers. In layman's terms: retirement. They are called 401(k)'s in the business sector and 403(b)'s in school. So the day today consisted of waking up, getting ready, and walking 50 feet to work. Talk about saving gas! Then we went and drove to schools trying to get leads and we were rather successful. Well, my dad was rather successful. I still have a lot to learn. It's sales and 100% commission.

Some other interesting things that happened today include (but are not limited to):

-Shooting out the window on my sisters car with a BB gun.

-Having In-N-Out for lunch after having it for dinner yesterday.

-Hanging out with Mark Hensley at my house.

-Beating Metal Gear Solid 3

-Going with my dad to buy a new puppy!

YEAH a new puppy!! It's sitting on my lap right now as I am typing this. She is the cutest thing. She is so active and rambunctious and she is about 3 months old. We are still debating on a name and I am pulling for Hazel.

Pictures for you to goggle at!

Today was a good day. :)

I guess I'm really used to putting commas after "so"... I mean "so much". I know ya'll probably knew that, but it bothers me lol. So, there you go (see).
