How Long I Have Been On My Journey

A few updates, nothing special

If you do not know, I am working at my old job. It get about 12 hours a week. I get paid once a month. It isn't much, but this is where I am at right now. I still haven't heard anything from the people I interviewed for. Not one job. The jobs that promised to contact me regardless has failed to let me hear anything, regarldess of good or bad news. Ehh. I am at a standstill at the moment. However, I have received a pay check for the first time in two months. That was exciting. I almost forgot how that felt. Sadly, this little money has to last me until the next paycheck, October 31st. Heartbreaking, right? I work with an after school program. I work 2 and a half hours a day. I get only two hours on Friday. As of right now, this is my means of income right now. These few checks will be going towards Christmas presents (I have started Christmas shopping last week). So, other than seeing bright smiles on that glorious day in December, I will not see anything for myself until the first of the year.

I have agreed to work this job up to December. Because of my promise, I cannot pick up any other job in fear that it may conflict with this job. There are field trips planned from time to time, so I have to be available for those hours. I rather not mess a "good" thing. It is great that I have something, but I wish I was making waaaaay more money. However, this job grants me two great job references that I cannot allow myself to throw away. So I go to work, do my job, do my job well. I have a great attitude. I work with the children to the best of my ability. In the end, the money may not be what I want, but that is two job references that I have a clear mind about putting on my resume.

I am still not in school. I cannot wait until January. I will have work to do. I will be taking classes. Since the summer has been over, I have fallen into this mundane routine. I wake up, eat a small amount, watch a lot of tv, clean up, go to work for 2 hours, come home, watch more tv, eat a little more, go to sleep. That is my life. I am quite bored with it and I am ready for a change. That is why I cannot wait until school starts. Not only will I be taking grad school classes, but I am trying to take some science classes at a community college. I am too excited. There are days where I want to wish all of this free time away and get right into my classes and continuing with my life.

For some bad news, I am not opening my store like I have planned on. There have been a few personal issues that I have been trying to take care of at home. There is so much going on. I cannot elaborate on any of it right now, but all I can say that the events that have taken place lately have caused me to commit ALL of  my attention to it, none towards opening and expaning my "business". There will be a blog in the near future that will explain EVERYTHING that I am going through right now. But until then, I have to put a few things aside until a later date, one being the store. I am so sad. :(

To keep my mind off of the fact that I am not where I promised myself I will be at, I have been doing alot of mind-numbing web surfing. It is great to move your hand on an object that can practically take you anywhere. After doing lots and lots of random google searches, I stumbled upon This website alerts you of all of the arts and crafts fair, festivals and bazaars in an area near you. Well, me being addicted to arts and crafts, I have decided to scribble down a few that were near me. In the end, I wrote down 8 events that are taking place near me. However, I  decided that I am going to at least 5. I want to see what these vendors look like and how they do things. I want to see how these shows work. Maybe one day, I can build the courage up to be a vendor myself one. I cannot wait, The first one will be in October. I have marked them all down in my calendar. I am going to take plenty of notes. Maybe this will help me to decide whether or not I should keep my hobby a simple hobby or share my love with the world.

My dreams have hit a rough patch right now; I have been knocked down.
When I am knocked down, its their fault.
If I stay down, its my fault.
So, I am slowly getting back up on my feet.
Until next post...

Subtle Update

It has been a while since I have wrote on here. I haven't forgot about this blog, only that I have nothing to report on, lol. I went back working my old job. I only get 12 hours a week. It isn't much, but I do have something to work with. I will probably work this job until December, because I have committed to this term. But I am looking for other work. I may get 2 1/2 hours a day. The rest of the day, I am not doing squat. I was working on my Spanish. However, I was hit with a personal burden for some weeks, so I haven't been on my Spanish in about two weeks going on three. However, I am back on it, effectively tomorrow. I may not have anything to do, but I am not going to let this free time pass me by without having something to show for it. Wouldn't it be a shame if I had all of this time on my hands and did nothing with it? I would feel like an absolute loser. LOL. I have also considered going to the high school I graduated from an offering my volunteer services by tutoring for the graduation exam, or the exit exam. It would be good for the soul and a great resume booster, right?

As far as the job search, I have looked online and in the newspapers. I haven't found anything. I would think there would be somthing, but there is absolutely nothing I qualify for. I haven't heard back from my very last job interview. I have had people contacting me about selling insurance for several different companies, but they are commission-based income. I rather not.

My boyfriend has had a few more interviews than me. He has also got offered a job at a bank. He also got offered a job within the marketing field. So, I am excited for him.

I am in a slump. I decided to look online about how to get my start in the medical field. The internet offered me no help. I have been slightly considering EMT classes, Dental Assisting classes, ASN school. I am desperate to be in this field. However, I need to find the job that will be right for me. I need to find the one that I will make a lot of difference in and feel fulfilled in, right? The truth is, other than I know that I want to be in this field, I have no idea what I want to do. I am lost. I am praying for some enlightment.

Sneak Look at My Store

Hello, loves! I hope everyone has had a wonderful Labor Day. Mines was ok. Did not eat that much. I have been mostly working on my store. I am so excited!!!

I want to announce the new pair of earrings that I have created. These earrings will be available for sale. They are available NOW if you want to shoot me an email about the following pair or anything else that you are interested in.
I absolutely love these. The studs are 1&1/4 inch in diameter. They will be going for $8. I believe that these are a steal. Years ago, I saw something like this, about this size and with these colors with a different design and they were $40! No thanks!!!

My store is still not available to online shop; HOWEVER, it is online and you can VIEW it! Like I said, the checkout is unavailable right now. BUT if you are interested in anything you can email me.
Here is the website:
It is still in the developing stages, but there it is. September 30th is still the official date where everything should be in working order. If you are interested in anything, please contact me:

Accessory designing has always been this hobby of mines, and now I get to share the love.

Well, thanks for reading this post and I will see you next time!!!
