I'm a guinness!

First of all, ASHLEY IS ENGAGED!!! It is the cutest story you have EVER heard, so click on the link and read it! Amazing, just amazing. I'm so happy for you, girl! It is so wonderful. Congrats! You deserve everything with Ethan.

My interview with Kohls went ok. I could have done better, but oh well. I decided that I want a job that has international opportunities just in case I get the chance to live and work in another country. It would be so wonderful!

It is 82* in my apartment right now. I think our A/C broke. haha. I called the apt. office but they are closed on Sundays. I paged the "emergency" pager, but it isn't very helpful because no one called back. What if we have a real emergency? Kim's dad offered to put us up in a hotel room tonight, but I think Kim and I are going to rough it.

Speaking of roughing it, I'm going to camp out for my Aggie Ring Wednesday night! I can't wait. I'm going with my sister, my roommate, and anyone else who wants to come. "Because the road goes on forever, and the party never eeeeends!"

Lastly, I wanted to share an awesome quote from my pastor here in College Station. Last week we talked about forgiveness, it was amazing. He said, "Forgiveness is freedom from a debt owed." Amen, brotha!

I conquered the Career Fair

So, guess who got an interview with Kohls? ME! I interview with Kohls tomorrow at 1:30pm. So cool! It will be fun. Any pointers?

Also, I discovered that parents are incapable of writing an e-mail to their child without giving advice. Jeez.

Side note: I changed the settings on my comments to get less spam. Now you have to go through a word verification process to leave a comment. Hope this doesn't deter anyone except the spammers! :-)

Ripping and burning

Here is an actual e-mail conversation I had with Kevin today. Its great.

Me: What does it mean to rip a CD???? Need to know. Gracias.

Love ya,
your fiance


Kevin: In layman's terms, ripping a CD means to take it off a CD and put it on a computer. A little more technical way to say it is that you take the .wav format file off of the CD and convert it into an .mp3 format. The action of converting from .wav to .mp3 is called "ripping". .wav file format is very large where as .mp3 is much more sutable for large volume file storage. The quality of .mp3 is therefore lower, but its hardly noticable. That explanation should answer most test questions, hope it wasn't too much.

Dawn,
your fiance(finance)


Me: you are so smart and I love it.

All I want to do is copy my CD onto the computer(Windows Media Player) so I can listen to it without putting in the CD all the time. Will ripping the CD accomplish this or does it ruin the CD???

Kisses


Kevin: yes it accomplishes it, and no it doesn't ruin the CD.
mwah!


Me: YAYYAYAYAYAYAY!!!!!!!!!!!!
Love you


you'd think a word like "ripping" would mean it ruins the CD. haha. I thought it stripped off all the info on the CD...such a violent word...haha

Kevin: haha, no, it totally makes sense. Anyone would think that. With burning and ripping being such integral words in using a computer its suprising they don't also use "tearing" and "mangling"....though the words "kicking and screaming" come to mind often.

Me: ohmygosh, i'm putting that on my blog...:-D

Kevin: awww, lol, i'm flattered.

ahhhhhh, isn't he great?

Skirts and oil

Today must be National Pretty Skirts Day and I missed the memo. I wore jeans. I swear at least 1/2 the girls on campus were wearing skirts today and I wanted about 1/2 of those. I saw so many cool skirts. I need to know where these chicas shop.

My daddy has been helping Huricane victims in Dallas. I'm so proud. College Station is hosting about 300 people at Reed, the Lincoln Center, and a church. I'm going to try and see if I can volunteer some time. I'm excited, I hope I can do it! When I went grocery shopping I was thinking about what it would be like to lose everything. I mean, everything. Car, computer, bed, furniture, clothes, jewerly, keepsakes, books, tv, guitar, momentos. Wow. On the one hand, it would be cool to start a fresh life all over again. On the other, it is expensive. I can't imagine.

Looks like I had nothing special to say on this post. Oh. Gas prices. I know we have the technology to make cars that don't run on gas, so why are we still dependent on oil? Why don't we switch to the cars that don't need it? It would be more efficient, cheaper in the long run, and better for the Earth. I guess we are still using oil in order to protect the industry. Thousands of jobs would be lost if we stopped using gas, including my fiancee's dad. But, still... I'm sick of using up the Earth's natural resources at such an incredibly rapid rate. Surely it isn't good to use up millions of years of oil in a century...
