A Very Cold Sunday

The 60 - 65 degree weather is gone again. Now we have freezing rain and ice all over. Its so cold outside. I hate cold weather. It makes my bones ache and shiver all the time. No matter where I go I'm cold.

It's Finally Saturday...

It's been some time since I've posted to my blog. I've been extremely busy with school and everything going on. I got laid off at my old job and now have found a new one along with taking a pay cut and shortage on hours. A shortage in hours is really no big deal since I need a lot of extra time to study and get that mountain of homework completed on time.

So far things are going good and I haven't had any real hangups in class. Well, actually yes, I did have one. I was taking microeconomics and all was fine in class during the lecture, then came homework. Which turned out nearly impossible since I have never taken algebra 1 or any math above that. I dropped that class very quickly.

Spanish class is pretty easy, we're learning verbs. I'm on the lookout for someone (a penpal) who knows spanish and can teach me online via email or IM. I know a good deal of spanish words, but when it comes to putting them together into a sentence, I'm lost.

Well, I guess I should study my spanish and read back over my english to make sure its done completely since class is on Monday and theres a test.

Busy, Busy, Busy...

It's been a crazy week with moving all our stuff and working and trying to get used to living in Salem and driving further. Finally things have settled down and we have the entire weekend off from work. Yippy! School starts on Monday - Yippy! Plus I have to work that night. I'm going to be so worn out from school all day and work til midnight. At least I don't go to classes on Friday and have a short shift on Friday nights.

My Last Entry for 2005!!!

Today is moving day. Yippy ya hoo. I say that sarcastically LOL. We're moving in with friends but it's all good. It's so hard to believe that tomorrow is the first day of 2006. Where did 2005 go? It flew by. Well, I have access to the internet now. Yippy. Once again I'm back online. Well, at least between work and school which starts next Monday.

Not much has really been going one in the days that I haven't had internet. Just going to work, and more work. I have a three day weekend this week and I'm gonna spend it moving. But its no big deal. We don't really have that much to move since our last move from our huge apartment to the tiny one. We've pretty much only got maybe 3 more trips to our old place to our friend's house. What a way to bring in the New Year.

Well, laundry is calling and there's so much to do.

Long Time Gone...

Well, it’s been a long time since I’ve posted an entry, but I’m back now sorta. I borrowed my sister’s laptop so that I could at least pick up a wi-fi signal from various places around the city. The library seems to be the best place for it. So far though no such luck in finding any other places that offer wi-fi for free other than Denny’s and lately they’ve been so packed it’s just too much for me to wait. Last night I spent 45 minutes in Sheetz (a gas station/MTO place), waiting for my food order to be up and to pay for my gas; so NO more waiting in line. And today I drove over to Best Buy and sat there for about an hour in line in the parking lot in my truck waiting to get out of the parking lot. I hate waiting and I’m one of the most impatient people you’ll ever meet. I know that’s not good, but that’s me.

Christmas Day…

Christmas was pretty good. I went to my mom’s house to pick up my sister’s computer and then we all (me, Jer, Dave, my sister, Mom, and my mom’s boyfriend) went to watch “The Chronicles of Narnia”. It was a pretty good movie. Sort of a slow start, but still pretty good. I really want to see “Fun with Dick and Jane”. It looks hilarious.

My Christmas was pretty good. I went shopping today for some clothes today for school. I got a backpack today too for school. I can’t wait until school starts. January 9, 2006 just can’t come soon enough. I’ve got everything I need for school, my backpack, notebooks, clothes, and my books and tuition is paid for. I’ve finally figured out my school schedule and its all set.

Monday – Intro to Microcomputers
Tuesday – Microeconomics, English 111, Spanish 101
Wednesday – College Survival Skills
Thursday – Microeconomics, English 111, Spanish 101

I have Friday completely free other than work 2:30 – 10pm and Monday – Thursday I work 3:30 – 12am. I checked my mail the other day and found out I won a bid on for Book Rags Inc. Now I just have to wait a bit for the contract to reach them and for them to forward me my assignments. I hate waiting. It pays really good and it a full time writing job. Hopefully soon I can get started working on that and won’t have to work the other job at Elizabeth Arden.

Well, I guess I’ll go for now. Not much else has really been going on. Just working and struggling along the way.

I'll be away for a while...

Hello everyone, I'm posting this from the library and I will be away for some time due to bill problems and internet loss. I'll check in every once and a while between school and work. Hopefully soon all should be good and back to normal.

I hope everyone has a safe and joyous holiday. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!! Feel free to email me, I do check that at least every other day.

A Test of Blogger in MS Word

I’m trying this out in MS Word. I downloaded the needed files to do so. I just hope it works.

Anyhoo, if this does work, it'll be easier than logging into my blogger account - I think. Anyways, today is Saturday and I'm waiting on my eBay auction to end. I only have one item on there, and I hope it sells. Its a Microtek Digital Video Camera. I never got to use it because I never got the SD card it requires in order to save the video, mp3, still pictures, and voice. I now need to sell it to be able to get some christmas gifts for others and to fix my tire on my truck. Something that has been long overdue. The bills are piling up and no money is coming in for them.

My gut tells me everything will be ok, but I'm starting to wonder and doubt it. Is everything really going to be ok? some of the late fees are more than the actual bill. I just got my credit back on track too, but its getting shot all to hell now. I'm just not really sure what to do anymore. Once we get out of this month, everything should be fine, but the bills are 2 months behind now. The bank accounts are overdrawn - thanks to eBay and the internet is getting ready to be shut off along with the phone and credit cards.

It looks like the cleaning business was a very bad idea to get set on its been about three weeks and no one has called. All the flyers have been taken down and as soon as I put more up, they too get removed. The ad in the paper has brought in zero calls. A waste of $9.00 that was. I've heard that there are grants, loans, etc that you can get while you're in college to help pay for your living expenses, food, etc, but I can't find any anywhere online. Anyone know of any? Well, I guess I should start searching for more writing jobs and see if I can get a little bit of money.
