The Process..

So looking for jobs is a slow and tedious process. I have been putting out apps here and there since last week. I got an interview scheduled for next Monday with this tutoring place. It sounds pretty good. Just have to wait and see. I'm not gonna get my hopes up too high, but I am still applying to places in the meantime. I did speak to my boss to see if I could get my suspension reduced, but she said no and stands firm on it. That's cool though, I'll do my thing and just take it in stride and move on from it.

In my spare time, you would think I'd catch up on all my cleaning and organizing right? WRONG! I've been here online doing the same old bull and playing games and sleeping. I've also been cooking. IDK it's just one of those things. I like to cook and bake, so I've just been cooking. Ran out of stuff to cook, so now I'm gonna go to the store tomorrow and buy stuff to make. LOL Eventually I'll get around to the cleaning and putting stuff away.

I've also been dying my hair and trying to make it purple. No success. So I'm going to try blue. Worst case scenario - my hair will turn black from all the dye deposits. If not, I can always make it black and leave it alone. I'm just glad it's growning out pretty quickly from the last haircut. =o)

And while I'm not going to be working, my mom is going to leave for a week to go to Jamaica. That leaves me home alone. I know there's going to be trouble. I'll try to stay out of it. Who knows. I probably won't even be home. Try to be out and keep busy. Go sight seeing or something. I'll figure it out.

Other than that, things are going pretty OK. Started back at the gym. The diet thing is not going so well because it's expensive to be healthy. And I'm just not cut out for it. I've started with the most important thing - cutting out junk food and not eating late at night, I'm more active and that's what counts. I only need to lose like 10 lbs. I can do this! Just need to stay motivated and I'll be good. The plan is to find somewhere to run and find a running buddy and I'll be good. Possibly this Sunday my boo and I will go running together. That'd be sweet. =o)

That's pretty much it for now. Just trying to relax and not stress.

A Reflection of Sorts..

You know how everyone thought 2009 was going to be their year? Well I was one of those people. I'm 21 and its a new year, things are going to change and be better. That was my mind set and it definitely started off rocky as all hell. BUT I am glad to say it started to turn around and the last few months have been going well for me as far as personal, family, school and work life go. It seems like its all starting to come together. There are still a few bumps in the road here and there, but the journey is never that smooth. Its what makes life interesting and keeps it from being boring, because nothing comes that easy. If it does then all the more power to you!

Anyway, I am determined to make 2010 and 22 my year. I've already started getting my ish together. If all goes well and the school lets me, I will be graduating Feb 2010 [keeping my fingers crossed] and if I get in, will be attending Brooklyn College in the Fall for my Master's. OOOWWWWW.... LOL I do want to move out my momma's house, but I'd have to get a better job. It really is hard to get something good, and I am hoping that once I get my BA that It will be somewhat easier? Before I move out, I want to try and pay off some of the bills, and that seems never ending =o/ Even if I have to get a roomie, I'll do it and move out because I'm so done with my mom. I love her and all, but sometimes you just have to know when its your time.

I officially started getting more serious with the gym. I got a gym buddy and we are going to do this! I may be late in looking good for the summer, but I will look FAB on my birthday and for my cousin's wedding. I'm not sure what I'm going to do for my birthday as it stands now. I still have a few months to see what's going on, but I think my boo may want to do something special for me. [Although that is still in the air and comes with many of its own complications, but that is something personal that will not make it on the blog] At this point its like whatever happens, happens. I'm not going to go crazy trying to plan things out. I'm going to leave it be and just live life and enjoy it. I'm not going to try to change things, I WILL change things. Everything that I want to achieve, I will work on and get done.

Self empowerment at its best. I can and will do this! =o)

BTW I am finding it true that your past never just once stays in the past. For whatever reason, it follows you and comes back. =o/

This is all for now. Update at a later time.
