Well this is my first post of my first blog..... So, I guess I will tell a little about myself. My name is Sydni Amesis Sturrock (obviously, and yes my middle name is Amesis... it's Cherokee or something).
I currently live in Beaumont, TX but as some of you may know, we (my boyfriend and I and our babies) will be moving to the Galveston area in about 3 weeks!! This is so I can go to school at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston in the Clinical Laboratory Science program also known as Medical Technology. For those of you who don't know what that is, it's basically helping doctors diagnose patients by looking at their blood, urine, and skin samples under microscopes and running tests on them in the laboratory. You can work at hospitals and blood banks, but you can also work in pharmaceutical and medical research facilities which is what I would LOVE to do. I am so ready for these next 2 years to be over so I can start working doing something I will love. They say that if you find a job doing what you love, you won't work a day in your life. I like that : )
Anyways, I don't have much of a social life, occasionally we throw parties like 2 weekends ago, if you were here, and it was a blast! But I am a work-a-holic and a school-o-holic because I am trying to get this crap over with so I can get on to the bigger things in life!! (Mostly making the big bucks!!! :) ) But, I do have a best friend, who happens to be the love of my life, and his name is Justin McNeel. We met about 3 1/2 years ago and my life hasn't been the same since. Being young and on our own, we have struggled at times but right now, everything is actually going our way for once and we can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel! He just got a great new job and I got accepted into one of the best CLS programs in the state and we are both very happy!!!! I love him more than life itself :)
And we also have 2 other members of our family that we love with all of our hearts. First, there's Nessie.
A Siamese mix cat we adopted about 1 year ago. We actually found her on the side walk in front of Dixie Dance Hall one night last summer while leaving to go home. She was the cutest thing ever! but also had a hurt leg and, me being the animal lover that I am, couldn't leave her so we brought her into her family. Then there's Tidus, our 11 month old American Pitbull.
He is seriously the most beautiful baby pup ever ( 60+ pound baby pup lol) and I would never trade him for anything. Justin and I went and looked at him one day, but decided that maybe we should wait to get a dog. Then Justin surprised me with him a few days later last year in November and I am so glad that he did! He is the sweetest and most loving dog I have ever seen and we love him to death! It really hurts me that incredibly stupid people take this breed of dog and use it to make money and aren't a responsible pet owner and give them a bad name. And Tidus is proof of how great these dogs can be. He loves people and other animals, even a 5 pound puppy, and has never shown any aggression what so ever. He is the total opposite of this so called "dangerous breed" and it just goes to show that it's not the dog, it's the owner and how they raise their animals.
And that's The Secret Life of Syd, for now. :)
