Hiiii My name is Gill (that's Jill, only spelled with a "G"). Well Gillian really, but s’all the same! I used to live in New Orleans, but now I live in The-Middle-of-Nowhere, NJ. I graduated in May with my Bachelors in Environmental Science, and I am currently serving as an AmeriCorps volunteer focused on improving watershed health. I'm looking forward to a new adventure once my program ends in July!


Ask me ANYTHING. Really.

This is what happens when I’m not home for Thanksgiving.
“We don’t need you!! Look at this masterpiece!”

Momma: *whining* Giiiiiiilllllll, it’s falling apart, what do I do?! I can’t text Brenna again, I already texted her to ask where the bundt pan was. I’ll just add more icing….Oh no! It’s falling apart more! More icing!
*Globs icing onto cake as it continues to crumble*
Me: Yeah Mom, that looks great. Can’t even tell. Who needs Brenna when you’ve got this kinda talent??
*Mother whines and laughs so hard she says she might pee herself*
Bren, I was the one to text you because mom was too busy laugh-crying. It was THE BEST.
People still ate it. Not me-people, but other people did. *shrugs*

My family, you guys.
So perfect in every way.

TO BE FAIR TO MOMMA, there are other successful items not pictured. Crumb cake, chocolate chip cookies, lemon squares, pudding pie, and weight-watchers style cakes. 

She has talent, just maybe not with iced cakes… :)

Applying to jobs!

SO TIME CONSUMING.

Can’t anybody just hire me without making me apply? I’m super nice and stuff.

Also, I’m feeling really nostalgic about New Orleans and the life I had there. Change is hard!

That is all for now.

Boot Camp Day III!

I’ll just tell you a story:

After Boot Camp today, I walked outside and over to my bike. As I was opening my bike lock, I burped, and bile water came up and shot out of my nose.

I’ve had cuter moments.

But I guess this means I’m trying my hardest!

Today, I learned to like squat thrusts a little better, but I learned to hate sit-ups. Only because I can’t do them- my abs are even lamer than my arms if you can believe it. (It’s hard for me to believe because my arm strength is seriously embarrassing…)

That is all- must get ready for work!
