|June has never been very modest. Even in '51. CREDIT.|
I started my June by finding a new place to live that isn't smaller than most celebrity - or even some rich normal people - closets. After a year and half of paying way too much money for way too little space I am finally going to call a real apartment home. An apartment with real rooms and doors separating those real rooms. I won't be able to touch my oven from my bed. Not mad about it. I'll be in a cute little apartment with character that just so happens to be three blocks from downtown and three blocks from campus. I call that perfection.
But what makes of this even more exciting is that I wasn't just apartment hunting for me, I was apartment hunting for my sister who currently lives 5,000 miles away in Amsterdam. Did I mention that my sister lives in Amsterdam currently? Well she totally does. That's how cool and international my family is. Unfortunately there is nothing cool about international apartment hunting for someone who can be picky as shit. That is hard as hell. Finding this place - that I get to move into on the eleventh - ends an arduous two month search that had to meet approval from half way around the world. Now here's hoping she actually likes it when she moves back in August. I'm already in love.
Beyond the apartment, I'm just feeling really good about my life. I've been working out more than my usual half-assery and decided that I shouldn't waste my 6:00 am workouts by eating the way I usually do (healthy with an extra healthy dose of "I'll cheat with this huge burger because I'm drinking copious amounts of alcohol later"). The exclusion of alcohol and eating immaculately 100% of the time has put me in the best shape I've been in since college track. I'm finally seeing real results and am amazed about how good my body feels. All I did was make a few rather small changes and my body is finally thanking me after nearly two months. Just in time for bikinis. You have impeccable timing, body.
The most important part of why my June is going to be extra awesome has nothing to do with my new living situation or my physical fitness. Most awesomely, I'll be leaving for Miami in two weeks. On June eighteenth, I leave to spend nine marvelous days in Florida. But this isn't a simple vacation. Hooters is sending me to the International Swimsuit Pageant.
Now before you get all excited and jump to the conclusion that I'm competing, let me tell you that is not the case. Instead, I'll be a Hooters Girl correspondent of sorts conducting interviews, attending events, doing some PR and of course giving all of you a behind the scenes look at the Pageant. Now to my knowledge, I am the first girl being given an opportunity like this. That's pretty amazing. Of all the thousands and thousands of Hooters Girls around the world, I get to have a Hooters first. I am downright ecstatic. And downright ready to parlay this opportunity into a corporate position one day. Seriously. That's what I want for my future. I clearly love Hooters.
So that's why my June is going to be awesome. Add all that to the fact that I start my first grad school class right after I get back - which I'm also very excited about because I'm a super nerd - and this month is pretty much perfect. If I could round it out with buying a winning Powerball ticket I'd have the best month of my life on my hands. I should probably run to the gas station now and buy a handful of quick picks.
