Lets try and keep this one, shall we?

I'm not new to blogging, but I am new to this particular site. Ive attempted to keep a blog up and running too many times to count, but I always seem to get busy and never continue them with regular updates, and eventually I forget the password so i cant even log in. Theres probably 5 or 6 different Emily blogs floating around, lost in the past. So with all the different, new and exciting things going on in my life right now, I'm really going to try and keep this one updated.

Speaking of new and exciting;

If you didnt know, I am currently enrolled in Treasure Valley Community College taking some classes so I can build enough to eventually transfer over to Boise State University.

Well eventually has come, I applied to BSU on Friday, paid the application fee and now its just a waiting game until I hear if I've been accepted or not. This is really exciting, considering alot of people didnt think I would even graduate from high school.

My parents and I have decided that I will be living on campus, which is also really exciting because I'm currently about a half hour to forty five minutes out of my way to the actual campus. I will be living right downtown in the middle of everything, and right there on campus so ill be able to take a full set of classes and get on the fast track to a bachelors degree.

The campus I'm going to be living in are called The University Suites, which are upperclassman dorms. The layout is really nice, and not typical for a dorm room.

So by looking at the image above, this is the layout of the dorm. I would be sharing it with 3 other girls, we get our own bathroom and kitchen and living area. The dorm that my good friend Gina is living in, she has to share a bathroom with an entire floor, and she has to have a roomate. So this layout is really convenient and I dont have to purchase a meal plan which I know I wouldnt use.

I'm going to be getting my Bachelors in Communication, with a minor in Speech and debate and Political Science. After i obtain my Bachelors degree i plan on doing a fast track system to getting my Masters so that I can start off at that pay scale, and take an administrative position if that opprotunity opens up for me.

When I get there, Ill be right in my element. Ill be able to take Intercolligate Debate and Speech and compete against universities around the country.

For those of you who dont know, Im currently working at DirecTV, inc. Its been a wonderful part time job for me while I go to school, I'm working 4 hours a day, 5 days a week and the pay is what I was making when I was working at Target full time.
