Short Hiatus (sort of)

28 04 2009

Hey guys. Just letting you know posting may be slow right now. I just got the dreaded call from my apartment manager. Apparently people are complaining because of our dogs. We have a month to find a subleaser and a new place (unless we opt into moving into a one bedroom in the current place we are in now, which we dont want to really do since we are unhappy there).

The only reassurance is we had alreayd decided to move in together and were sort of looking and trying to figure out how to get out of my lease. We actually already had a place but it wont be ready for a few months and we no longer have time on our side.

I’ll try and post and keep everyone updated but for now, life may be a bit hectic for me.

At least this will make for some interesting blogging?

Where Art Thou…. again???

21 04 2009

Yeah, so I thought that I would have some fun and freak a few people out and write an entry on here… again. Talk about not being regular huh?

So, in my last post, I indicated that I was going through some interview processes to find a job. Well, I did that with three companies. Two indicated that they were going on a hiring freeze just before they were going to make me an offer, the other one hired from within. So here I am still looking for a job, hell even a part time job I will take!! But all part time jobs I have tried for either said I was over qualified or didnt call.

Other than that, me and my man have been together for over a year now… CRAZY!!! I turned 29 and things are pretty darn good.

Mich – sorry I have been so MIA lately. On your bday I was out canoing with my father. It was fun. Hope everyone else is going well. I am a person of very few words these day… it isnt a bad thing, just not much to talk about.

Oh and celebrating your birthday for a week isnt being a snob… celebrating the entire MONTH is… and that would be me! thank God for everyone else that Feb is a short month!!

 

Later

 

editors note: Yea, Twinnie, lol, I’m still technically celebrating mine too. No worries. Guess thats why we’re MnM





Call me Joe Hottie

20 04 2009

LoL. Couldn’t help it. Just visited the site and saw some comments and was like yea, that’s usually why I don’t post. Laziness. Sorry guys. But I’m at least honest about it (OO, too soon? Hahaha).

 

It’s funny. As I write this, I have a voice whispering in my ear (and by that I mean a friend IMing me) trying to encourage me to write professionally.

 

My whole literary life has been nicked and banged. Probably much the same as any Joe Schmoe, but I’ve hesitations all the same. I swear, this isn’t some, convince me to write a book. Honestly, I will one day. I know what to write about. But I have the attention span of George Bush and don’t know if it’ll ever actually get finished.

See, couldn’t even finish my original thought there. I’ve always wanted to write. I started writing two sentence stories for my grandmother. Of course, she was obligated to think I was the next Pulitzer winner. In tenth grade my writing style was shot down by a teacher who said I wrote too much like a journalist. I wanted to be one at the time. But after a 2 year internship with the Miami Herald I figured it wasn’t my niche.

 

Then a friend won a literary contest with a title I came up with for a band. Barbie Doll Heads and Nursery Rhymes. Even though I was happy I could help (even unknowingly) and knowing it was more her writing that won the awards, I felt a bit cheated. I also felt like I would never write up to par to the hipsters in making that I ran around with. You know the type? Hippy high school kids who are all into writing and photography. Whether it was because the literary magazine supervisor and I didn’t get along, or what, my work was never used. Why bother at that point. (I swear, this isn’t some lets pity me thing lol).

 

In college I became an English Lit major. I could bang out a paper the night before it was due and guarantee myself at least a B+. I went from a 2.7 to a 3.6 by graduation all after I became an English Lit major. And its fitting. I always want a say in everything. Im a wordy person. My college friends continue to joke about that. If I tell a story in under three sentences they’re amazed.

 

 

So yea, that’s where I am now. I guess eventually I’ll get a paper journal and just start scribbling and maybe one day it will turn into work.

 

 

I was going to use this post to write about my week. The vacation to Orcas Island. How funny my family is. The whirlwind of this past weekend. My sunburned back. But now, my ADD has kicked in. And I should probably get to work. Till next time…





Happy Birthday and a Growing Puppy

9 04 2009

YAY for birthdays! Im such a birthday snob too. Its “officially” my birthday at least a week before the actual day lol (which is today). Its been a pretty good birthday too so far.

Sunday night Ape and myself went out with a handful of friends (a couple, a friend of mine from work and his sister) to this awesome thai place that has a singing thai elvis who sang me happy birthday. Then Ape, myself and my friend Jen went over to The Beer Garden, our local bar, and met up with another couple we are friends with and some of their friends. Monday was a tough day coming into work after all the partying.

Then tuesday night his sister came back over and we all went out to dinner together at our favorite chinese place… and then last night he took me out to a special dinner, just us two, to a japanese curry place.

 

And because i dont have pictures of that… lol… here are some more pictures of the baby:
