Did I Just Say That?!

I spent less than three months in the Philippines where the electricity cutting in and out is quite normal. Except in the Philippines they aren’t call blackouts…but brownouts. Weird. I know.

Yesterday in southern, sunny, and hot California it topped 93 degrees. Yes, I know, it’s November. Y’all don’t think living in SoCal is what it’s all cracked up to be now, is it but I digress. Last night I was driving home and noticed a while grid was experiencing a blackout. Stores, street lamps, traffic lights the whole she-bang. Although as I was driving by I said, oh wow it’s a brownout!

TIME OUT! Did I just say that?

Is this your first job interview?

As stated in my previous blog post, I was laid off last year. With different things coming up I wasn’t able to fully focus on finding a job.

It being the holiday season I applied for seasonal/temp jobs from JCP, Sams Club, Target, etc.

I interviewed at two places and got both jobs on the spot. Thank you Lord! At one of the jobs as I was sitting there waiting to be called and making small talk with the others that were waiting…one of the other guys turned to me and asked..so is this your first job interview too?

Best compliment so far since turnings 26 this summer!

She comes rolling around again…

For starters, my eczema came back with a vengeance in September 2013. I stopped living life. My life consisted of work and home. Then to my relief, I was laid off in November 2013. I went on my family trip to Israel, Greece, and Rome. For you IG people mine is mct7988 the # for the trip was  #RIGtrip2013

Rome was everything I dreamed it would be and more. My sister and her boyfriend kindergarten sweethearts finally got engaged at Trevi Fountain nonetheless. My parents renewed their vows in Israel for their 25th anniversary. I found the love of my life while touring Rome…just kidding. I’m still single.

I came back from the RIGtrip and came into contact with someone from the Phils who had been trying to recruit me to teach English at their school. Long story short I bought a ticket to the Philippines.

I went to the Philippines in Feb and detoured a week in Guam. I taught English for a month and then vacationed with family. I also underwent eczema detox  IGers my # for this trip is #sea2014mct I also stopped over in Hawaii for two weeks for my cousin’s college graduation and visit my college friend.

Arriving back in the mainland…my grandpa was sick so for two months I was back and forth between home and my grandparents–helping out where I could. My eczema came back but not as severe as it had been. I did find something to help though and it’s slowly healing. Then it was crunch time for my sister’s wedding. The # for that is #DATlove92014

Now the nitty gritty stuff you’ll habe to wait for…I’m leaving again

Good grief…

Well, it’s been a while. I’ve been wasting time on here reading past posts and comments. Some of the posts definitely made me laugh. Some of the posts made me cringe a little.

I’m quite the head strong personality.

New things lately? I moved out of my parents house and into my own apartment this year and I’m single, again. Starting a new treatment for my skin, i know, again?!

As much as I love to continue blogging I know I’d easily fall away. We’ll see how well I can do. Hit/miss by this point.

Spoiled first day…

Done is my first day of work!

It was raining but I was still able to make it with 10 minutes to spare. There was a staff meeting scheduled. Breakfast potluck! A few people decided to pitch in for Porto’s. They ordered potato balls and meat pies. Someone also mixed drinks: cider, OJ, and a raspberry. Talk about GOOD MORNING WAKE UP CALL!

They also took me out to lunch.

On the work side of things. I had no log-in or set-up but I was able to get my feet wet. Looked through bank statements and did some daily reconciliations. No journal entries yet though.

Day two tomorrow.

Day 21-24 of Honesty Blogging

Day 21: The person or persons that do not read my blog but I wish he/she/they would is…

I’ve been in the right place at the right time several times for some opportune blogging letters. I would love to open up my email and find a comment from Starbucks girl or what Best Buy Guy thinks since he would read I used him to cross something off my bucket list…

Day 22 — Allowing another person to fully love me means they must…

To me, when someone has fully loved me that means they’ve seen me at my best and my worst: financially, spiritually, mentally, physically, psychologically and actually stuck with me.

I’m easily open with my worst features… I like scaring people off weeds out the people you don’t want in your life. Although sometimes it may seem I’m at my best; I haven’t given it to you. I’ve saved that part of myself for people who I want to do all for.

Day 23 — Allowing another person to fully love me means I must…

Trust them. To let them in my life. To share things about myself that very few people know. As I’ve explained to a potential boyfriend…you don’t understand the trek it is into my life. There’s a castle with a tall tower before you get to the castle there’s a moat and a wall as thick and high as the wall of China. By the way, at the bottom of the tower is a dragon.

Day 24 — Given the choice between having to live the rest of my life without my voice, or living the rest of my life without the ability to hear, I would choose…

To lose my voice, willingly. Words are so easily said and unable to be taken back…

Sounds are beautiful gorgeous things I cannot imagine not being able to hear an orchestra or the boom that comes with fireworks.

**I’m not completely back I did pass my test that I took in May and I’ve been recuperating from having to be at the computer 24/7 (sometimes it feels like that) I deactivated my FB so I had to get in some procrastination time somehow…)

Day 20 of Honesty Blogging

Image

Day 20 — I’m half naked, cold, tired, hungry, hurt, wet and just washed up on a deserted island. The first things I need to do to survive is…

Get dry… I freak out when I’m sticky and wet. Then thinking about sand sticking to me. Then not knowing how I’m going to be found. This thought process is just going downhill.

Definitely, get dry. Find water. Are there berries around, nonpoisonous of course… Who knows how long I’d be able to survive?  I’m going to find out the hard way…

I apologize for my lack of posts. I’ve been studying nonstop for my REG test I’m taking on May 29th. Almost exactly one month from now and I dove into stress, freak out, cram mode last week!
