Let's brighten things up a lil bit...
Today I opened my curtains & let the sun shine in. It felt so nice to feel the sun because it meant that it was a new day. New possibilities. It seems like I've been in such a dark place lately with only a day here & there where I was happy. I'm ready to come back into the light...
My blog is powered by my randomness. hehe. Bacon eating marathons, disproving one size fits all, concerts, movies, drama, & of course drama. But there are some positives right now that I haven't talked about lately & I think they deserve some attention.
For those of you who don't know I am a bit of a nerd. I pick the isanely hard puzzle with 1,000 pieces & 500 of them are water or sky. I watch Jeopardy ever night & try to get the last question. Once in a blue moon I'm lucky to know the answer. With my math Bachelor's degree, I also have an Associates degree in Engineering Science. I like solving all the problems. It's a challenge. However, there it's difficult to find an engineering or a math degree without the 5-10 years experience. That's why I'm working in data entry. But lately I've been increasing the randomness of my education.
My boss has been teaching me how to computer program. It's not easy by any means of the word. I'm starting off with HTML coding. You know the tags you put in your posts to make certain words italicized or bold. That's HTML. Maybe I'll finally learn how to personalize my blog layout. hehe. It's going to be a slow process but in a way, while I'm looking for a new job I'm going to milk the one I have for everything that they got!! I have to find a new job before the Yankee's start playing again. I can't stand that in my office they listen to the game & due to the radio-TV delay then run to watch it on TV. It's crazy. Anywho I'm enjoying learning something new. It's one more thing I can put on my resume for my new future job.
I use to mention early on in my blog that my mother is a doll maker. She has a group that meets ocassionally & they make dolls. I've recently joined this group. The picture below is my first project.
I know it kinda looks like a scary alien without the head on it & without the cloth over it. This is the foundation of the wire armature that I will cover & place a head on it. I will add the clothes, & put make-up on her. It is a her. lol. I like the lil hands. I never thought of myself as becoming a doll maker like my mom but I'm really enjoying it. When I get my mind wrapped around something, the determination kicks in to finish it. My mom is going to help me complete it. I'll definitely make sure I post pictures.
Somehow, I am actually saving some money too. I know I don't have a mortgage payment yet or kids to care for, but I do have bills to pay. I sat down and did an excel spreadsheet of my expenses for this credit card period. I somehow got my spending incredibly down. I saved at least a $100 this month. Not bad. That's a $100 more towards my future apartment or condo. =)
Another positive is each & every one of you. Thank you for the comments in the past few days. Its so hard to find the words that would be more powerful than Thank you. Hugs to all of you.
It's supposed to snow yet again, so it's a toss up if the weather man gets it right this time about how much. It's says its "Snowing" now according to Yahoo! Weather. It's not snowing at all. lol. I give up on understanding the weather. Well I'm just going to wait & see. I'm going work on my story some more. I'm feeling so much better so til tomorrow everyone...til tomorrow...
