Quest to Getting Back On My Horse

It's already the mid-week and I feel like I have been working for days. As I have been told many times that 'looking for work is in itself a full-time job.' Well, anyway.....since it's been a year since I have brought in a substantial paycheck, I have been surviving. It's been a struggle and I am still struggling.

I have been putting my skills to good use as of late. I recently joined an Excel 4-day training class which concludes today at 7:15. I feel really proud of myself because I am starting to realize that life is way too short, to not take advantage of a good thing. I have been apply for more jobs as of late and none of them have absolutely  nothing to do with Craigslist. I even got a call yesterday from a certain, but most popular insurance company to come in for an interview today. By the way, I went to that interview and they should be calling me back to schedule a one-on-one interview. However, I don't think I can sell things. I can probably sell a heck of a good story, but selling things like insurance to the masses. I remember trying that last year September and I could handle all of the information being tossed at me, especially since it was a 'need to know' in a week and then a test was given in prep for an even larger test. Yeah, maybe that would have worked if I had Superman's super reading ability, however since I can't read that fast on such a short notice I took the high road. I quit.


Now, I don't like to fancy myself a quitter. But it does happen. I like to be challenged don't get me wrong, but when you give me, excuse my language, shit to work with. It's usually hard for me to polish it and turn it into a diamond. I, now think that all my choices in life were largely based on somewhat smart decisions. However, I still think that it could have been worse.


Now, that I am back to where it pretty much began for me, I feel better. Not for coming back, but for the talks that I have had with several people. I understand that I have move forward or move aside and let someone else take the helm. Well, I'm not like that. If I know I can do it, I'm going to do it. Now, it's time to get back on my horse today and ride into the proverbial sunset.

Scandal Season 7 Review...the deconstruction of Olivia Pope

Olivia Pope portrayed by Kerry Washington. Hi friends, I know it has been some time since I covered Scandal and I apologize. I have been watching multiple shows all at once, so it has been hard for me to get my reviews together. With that being said, I have a major gripe with the seventh and last season of Scandal. I want to start off by saying..."Where is Olivia and what the hell happened to her?!" As a viewer of the show since its first season, I have seen a lot of changes happen. From the departure of OPA alum Stephen at the end of season 1, Columbus Short's publicized departure from the show at the end of season 3, the death of James (which makes me still hate Jake) and so on. But this season has Liv as the head of B613 (Command) and she is quickly becoming the stuff that nightmares are made of. Liv has now taken to tactics that her father, Rowan would do when he was the head of the organization. But seriously, what happened to the lady in the white hat? Wher…

#30 Day Shipping Challenge: Day 2: What was your first ship?

Over the years, I have been fans of many ships. But, no ship has got me in my feelings as much as Buffy and Angel from Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Angel). Buffy and Angel was my first ever ship. From the moment that they meet outside the Bronze to the moment after the fight with the mayor, Angel and Buff stare at each other from a distance as he turns to leave (Angel goes off to L.A. to have his spin-off series.) The ‘Bangel’ ship was the first tv couple that I had ever written fanfiction on. I don’t know, at 16 years old, they were thee ‘it’ couple...despite the fact that he was a 200 something year old vampire and she was a teenage girl groomed to be the Slayer (on paper this pairing is sooo not legal). But their relationship made for such interesting drama. Especially, after Angel turns into Angelus (Angel without a soul) after he and Buffy consummate their relationship. Things are never the same with these two, especially when Angelus begins to torture Buffy and the Scooby Ga…
