Updates



Sorry I haven't blogged for some time, but I've been a bit busy. However, now I have time to let y'all know what's been happening in my little world. This update is for my one-and-only fan (you know who you are), who was going through withdrawls from me not blogging! :)

Not much to report this summer. I signed up to take a Speech class, but then dropped it since I wasn't feeling it and couldn't keep up. I will attempt to take it again in the future. If what the career tests say is true, I should be able to pass this class with "flying colors."

In career news, for the past few months, I've been working on another story with the hope of getting it published. Unfortunately, I haven't had any takers. I e-mailed the ET Editor at the Sacramento Bee to which she replied that she didn't have "any $$ in her budget for freelance writers." So then I moved on to a major Bay Area newspaper's A&E Editor, to which I have yet to receive a reply from. I thought not hearing back right away was a clue that it might be a story they're looking for. Well, I have a feeling that this editor isn't even considering it. Should I follow-up with a call since his work number was published on their web site? As you can probably guess, I'm not too fond of the Bay Area media right now. Arghhhh!

In music news, one of my new friends, who I'm attending the NKOTB show with in San Jose in 3 months, called me recently to tell me that a Sacramento show was added! I had a feeling (yep, thank goodness for my intuition kicking in) they'd do this, but just didn't know when. At the last minute, I told my friend I didn't think I could afford to go since I'm already going to the SJ & San Diego shows. Well, she coaxed me into going & offered to pay for the ticket. I'm definitely paying her back though.

My friends & I are counting the days until the Sac show, which is The Block's (the group's new nickname & the name of their new album) first Nor Cal performance in 14 years. Actually, the big day will be the following day, when we get to meet the guys in San Jose!! According to the site that's providing the VIP tixs, they haven't sold-out. This could mean that my gal pals & I could possibly have more time talking with the guys. Ok, so we have to share them with a few other strangers, but hopefully it isn't more than 30! Hey, this also means that maybe I'll have more time to chat with my crush! Incidentally, I was talking to a friend about this crush when I jokingly said, "He must have a halo hovering over his head because he's definitely an angel in my book!" Yes, I think I may have just created a new pick-up line! My friend thinks I should totally use it on him because he'd probably get a laugh out of it! ;)

In relationship news, my dating life still sucks. I'm not really putting in any effort right now at finding my soulmate. I'm leaving it up to a higher power (Are you listening God?) to help me. With that said, I will continue to live by the following mottos: "If it's meant to happen, it will" or "Good things come to those who wait."

Speaking of things I desire in my life, I got inspired to make a vision board after having watched The Secret last year. Also, I've seen a few different Oprah segments on how the Laws of Attraction work and how it has changed peoples lives after having made their own board. I immediately began brainstorming and wrote down some things I thought I was lacking or missing in my life; however, I also wrote down what I have to be thankful for. The next step was to find some pics I had and to search for more. All I have left to do now is to paste these pics on my board and write some inspiring words around them. Once my board is complete, I'll try posting a pic of it here.

And last, but not least, thanks go George Dub-ya, we're in a recession. With that said, I hate my job! Back in January, the same week I started school, I was let go from my job of 1-1/2 years due to budget cuts. I was in shock when I got the news because I wasn't expecting it. So I waited a bit until the school semester ended and then submited my resume to a few different organizations. Alas, no one was hiring. In the back of my mind, I told myself that I didn't want to take a job at school until I was desperate. One major reason behind this is because they pay s***!! Unfortunately, I can't afford to live off of what they pay. Well, I did what I said I wasn't going to do and got hired. The way things were handled the first week I started I would never wish on anyone.

Needless to say, I will continue applying for other jobs because I really need to make more $$ to pay the bills and I need to be challenged. It's times like these when I wish I was in business for myself.

Yay a post!!!

"This update is for my one-and-only fan (you know who you are), who was going through withdrawls from me not blogging!" Aw *blush* thanks sista!!

I took a speech class in college - it was literally the last class I took. I was a nervous wreck.

Good luck on the story! I'm sure you will get it published, because you are a terrific writer! You should definitely call though - you never know, right? Tell them to call me. I'll set them straight, crazy fools.

You are gonna have a great time at NKOTB. Let me know if I need to start shopping for a wedding gift for you and Jonathan ;)

Good luck with the job situation. That sounds like such a challenge. I am sure something awesome is around the corner, at least I hope so. Ive had my eye out there also, but in this day and age (ditto, thanks Dubya) I'm almost afraid to jump ship.

You need to become a famous writer and I'll become a famous event planner. And then we can travel the world with our gorgeous singer songwriter husbands. :)

Seems like someone may have already beat me to Jon, but a girl can dream, right?! Besides, there's always my 2nd choice! :)
