|Moving the fuck on with life
SO yeah, if you got the link you know where to find me.
If not, sucks to be you, haha.
Bye bye, _jeannie_
, it's been a good run.
See you on the other side, motherf*ckers! Current Mood: annoyed

Today was one of those days from hell at work. I was learning a new computer system at the agency, and I accidentally entered an extra "5" into one of the sheets. Well evidentally if you fuck up, it's a big headache trying to fix it! I mean who the hell ever heard of a computer system where you cannot go in and fix your mistakes?? Amazing.
I saw two full time job openings, both at schools. One was for a Secretary at MC3, the other is for a Career Center Advisor at Empire Beauty School. I really need to start thinking of getting a full time job with benefits. Or something with benefits, so I'm going to apply for both these jobs and see what happens.
So I figure I'll either get into the LPN school, or I'll find a decent paying job and not have to do the school thing anymore. Either way it will work out. But I really have to start making more money in this world, starting yesterday. Current Mood: hopeful

Sooo my vocal lessons resume this Friday, as my vocal teacher is now out of the hospital. I was debating whether to continue with them due to money issues. But you know, it gives me something else to focus on besides my miserable love life. And it makes me feel as if I'm taking small steps toward achieving my dreams.
Still no word as to when the LPN test is going to be held. Part of me wishes that I would have gone on June 3rd. Then another part of me thinks that if I get a full time job at the college, that I won't even bother going back to school. Current Mood: okay

|Writer's Block: Significant Choices
If you had to choose between your friends and your significant other, who would you choose?
Wow, good question. As of right now, I would definitely say my friends. However this would depend on if I meet my soulmate or not--then he will come first no matter what.
But of course if he's my *real* soulmate, he won't make me choose. :) Current Mood: hopeful

|Writer's Block: Venting
What's the most annoying thing that happened to you this week?
Well I started my new job at the community college on Tuesday. On Wednesday I talked to my boss, and she was very upset. Here the college board may be making my job full time in July. So what that means is that anyone in the college can bid on the job. If someone with more seniority than me wants it, that means I'm out on my a$$.
I'm not going to worry about it too much though. There might be another job opening within the college that I can just slide into--at least that's my hope. So far I really like it. It's a very nice working atmosphere, and the girls seem very nice. So I hope I can stay. Current Mood: hopeful

|Tattoos and work
Interesting discussion on another board--what is your view on tattoos in the workplace? More and more people are getting tattoos removed, in order to have a better shot at getting a job.
I can mostly cover my tattoos when I have to, but depending on clothing, they might peek out a bit. I think my tattoos have maybe prevented me from getting one job. But truthfully, I don't think I would have been happy with that job anyway.
Would I get them removed to go work for some stuffy corporation? Not on your life, recession or no recession.
I guess I'm lucky though, because in this town tattoos are common. I have heard that there is A LOT of prejudice elsewhere against tattooed people. Hell, even a family doctor in this town has a huge tattoo on her back--an awesome dragon! Current Mood: curious

As usual I managed to totally fuck myself over. As many of you know, I really have been majorly stressed at my job. So I got a new job, and I am cutting back to part time the end of this month. I was under the impression that I could go back on Matt's health plan on September 1.
Well Matt called and now I can't go on his plan till January 1st! Some stupid bull shit about the group number changing or whatever. What a bunch of shit! So I'm basically screwed now with health insurance.
I suppose I could talk to my boss about staying on full time, but as Matt said, "How long do you really think you'll be able to take it?" Plus now they know I'm looking for another job, and they'll be watching me like a hawk. No fucking thanks.
I applied for an individual plan, but I'm afraid I'm gonna be turned down. Or else they will charge me out the nose. We'll see tho. This just sucks since I really cannot be without health insurance with my pre-existing conditions. A Cobra will cost me $400 per month, and that will be hard for me to afford.
I seriously hope I get into school soon, and can get the funding. I am so tired of living paycheck to paycheck. Even with a Bachelors Degree, I have yet to make $25,000 a year in my life. And I have a mountain of debts. Wish I could just get a damn do-over.... Current Mood: worried
|Monday, May 4th, 2009|
Well I got the part time job at the local community college. I'm going to stay on at the agency part time at least for now. I called the LPN school and I'm still being considered for the fall class. Now the challenge will be to get funding in order to go. I will prob have to take on about $10,000 more debt. I guess I still have 20 years at least to work to pay it off, but I'm already $62,000 in the hole from my credit cards and Bachelor Degree loans. Wish I knew what to do...
Now I have to figure out this whole health insurance mess. Trust me, it was not worth staying at the agency for their piss-poor health insurance. But since I will be working two part time jobs, I won't have coverage at least for now. I could get a promotion at the college though, but it won't be for a while.
My whole life is in flux right now, causing me a great deal of stress.....
I think my co-workers are pissed at me, but oh well. The college is growing big time, and the agency is losing money hand over fist. It was getting way too stressful, and I've been living on migraine pills for months. Something had to give, ya know??? Current Mood: scared

Okay so lately I cannot get my fill of this junk TV that has been on. Daisy of Love
--OMG such a train wreck but so awesome. This will be the best one of these shows for sure. I hate to say it, but I really hope 12-Pack wins. I think he is really into Daisy, and he seems like the best of a bad lot.
And am I the only one who would take on all three of those Triplets?? Yummy! (Oh come on, it would be a kick just once!)Tough Love
is another great show. Jodie is my favorite, probably because she is around my age. Are Shaine and her the cutest couple ever or what?? I liked how he came and stood right by her side during that whole dramatic fight with Jacqueline. He's a keeper!
And Aryan--first off her family has to be a bunch of racists with a name like that. Second of all, her mom is just plain trashy. I really hope Aryan pulls herself together, but I doubt it. I Love Money 2
--this one I don't watch too much, just once in a while if it's on. OMG though--if It turns out to really be a super-genius, I would die laughing. Rock of Love Bus
--Bret Michaels is a super-idiot for not picking Mindy. Of course those girls are super-idiots for going on that show in the first place. Is he going to be still doing the Rock of Love thing when he is 60? If he is, the girls will probably still be 20-something. Current Mood: entertained

Well today I sang at the recital. I thought for sure I would be the oldest one there, as it was mostly kids there with their parents watching. Thankfully there was one lady there who was at least 70 or more playing the organ. The kids were cute. I was the only vocalist there. Most of the kids played the piano and one played the clarinet.
Don't know why I was so nervous as I often sing karaoke, but I was! Matt was there along with my mom and stepdad.
Damn, it is freakin hot today! My poor little Sisi kitty threw up a small amount this morning. She seems to be okay now, so we are just keeping an eye on here. It went from REALLY cold to REALLY hot REALLY quickly, so I'm sure that had something to do with it. Current Mood: accomplished

|Vocal coach is sick
Well I showed up for my voice lesson tonight, and my voice teacher did not answer the door. So I called her home phone and no answer. Finally got her on her cell phone, and she had been sick in bed all day throwing up. :( That sucks. Not sure what this means for the concert on Sunday, but I guess we'll see.
Tonight Matt and I are going to Reading Rehab to help Evelyn, the older lady that I used to work for. She broke her arm and will be in the rehab for at least 2 months. She asked if we would go to her apartment and take out her trash and stuff.
Tomorrow is my cousin's wedding, but I think we are just going to the reception. The damn wedding is at 3 and I'm not even sure where. The reception does not start until 6 pm. I think we'll just put in an appearance at the reception and say *fuck it* Current Mood: blah

Back to work today, to more stress and aggravation. I really think that this job is making my depression worse, and I am taking copious amounts of migraine meds just to deal.
My friend Diane said that RACC called and I am being seriously considered for the Records Specialist position. The only sucky thing is that it does not have health insurance, so I'd be back to that whole conundrum again. Wondering if it would be worth it though, as there would be room for advancement. I'm still looking for that elusive part time job with benefits though. ~~sigh~~ I'll grab it if I find it. Current Mood: stressed

|What Age Do You Act?
|You Act Like You Are 29 Years Old|
|You are a twenty-something at heart. You feel like an adult, and you're optimistic about life.|
You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.
You're still figuring out your place in the world and how you want your life to shape up.
The world is full of possibilities, and you can't wait to explore many of them.
29 and holding, peeps! :) Current Mood: hopeful
|Well as if I didn't feel enough like shit
Now I have a guilt trip on top of it. I used to work for a home health agency, and I kept in touch with the one lady that was a client of mine. Last I talked to her, I mentioned that we should go to lunch this coming weekend.
At the time, I was not even thinking that this would be the weekend that Matt and I would be at the shore. Well tonight she called and asked about lunch this weekend.
I apologized profusely and told her I would make it up to her next weekend, but I could tell she was disappointed and upset. Really these weeks have been flying by and I have been extremely self-absorbed. I should have called her before this. Current Mood: guilty
|In other news
Went to karaoke tonight with my friend Lisa. I think I would have had a good shot at second place if I had stayed around for the contest. Current Mood: sad

HOLY HELL I went for a haircut today after work. The stylist was an older lady, and I thought that she would probably be the one to go to. She did a nice job but it's TOO DAMN SHORT. Holy shit is it ever short. By the time I realized what she was doing, it was too late to say anything. Or else I would have had one of those asymmetrical hairdos like in the 80's. The good thing is that my hair grows fast, so I won't get all upset I guess.
I had a good interview today at the local community college. The job is a "Records Specialist," which I am certainly qualified for. But it's only part time. Matt is in the process of checking if I can go back on his health benefits for the time being. The good thing is that there is definitely more room for advancement than at my current job. Current Mood: blah

|Wow send him my way
BERLIN (Reuters) – A German woman has divorced her husband because she was fed up with him cleaning all the time.
German media reported the wife got through 15 years of marriage putting up with the man's penchant for doing household chores, tidying up and rearranging the furniture.
But she ran out of patience when he knocked down and rebuilt a wall at their home when it got dirty, Christian Kropp, court judge in the central town of Sondershausen, said on Thursday.
"I'd never had anyone seek a divorce for this," he said.

Wow wish some of that would rub off on my husband! lol Of course, if he's one of those people who freaks out when anything is out of place, I can see where that would get to be a little much. Current Mood: confused
