Quest to Getting Back On My Horse #12

Oh my goodness! It's Tuesday morning and I'm still not asleep. I have to be at the airport at 9am. I apparently missed my appointment to pick up my i.d. on Friday. For some reason I thought that it was a bill collector so I never checked my messages. (Silly me.) However, I am here hanging with my guy and our friends. Just sitting here talking about everything under the sun.

This weekend was enlightening to say the least, but at least it was quiet. And for me, quiet is definitely a good thing.

So today, I am getting back on my horse and hopefully I make it through the gate. I am a little nervous but what am I so nervous about it? If anything I am more apprehensive about working back at the company that has laid me off for four months. *Sigh* I am afraid that I will get laid off again after another three months. Hopefully with a little planning I will be better prepared to handle the situation should it arise. Fingers crossed.

So, lest's see how long does it takes before the…

Why Are You So Obsessed?

Okay, so as you guys may know, I got laid off from my job a few months ago. Well, with that being said, I have been trying to keep myself busy. In a recent blog, These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things, I discussed some of the things I like to do. I even went so far as to make a What's Hot! page so I can tell you guys what was my latest obsession. Alright, get to the point you say? Okay, I'm getting there right now. 
I have so many obsessions that its scary. I frankly can't name them all, but just know that there are many. With that being said, I just updated the What's Hot section. This week, I talk about my love for the television series, Burn Notice. But why am I so obsessed you ask?
In three words, I...don't...know. Simply put. I think that my obsessions come from a lack of interaction with the outside world. However, my response to that is, "Is that totally a bad thing?" *Shrug* I suppose that my obsessions or addictions could be far worse than some othe…

Spies, Intruders and the Downright Shameless!

Hi guys,

I don't like writing about things like this, but I have to get this off of my chest. But before I start, I would like to ask you a question: Do you know anyone who has ever spied on you? Do you know someone who has spied on you for no good reason only to "tattle-tell" on you?

Now, I am not saying that I did something wrong, but I want to explain to you what actually happened.

It all started last Friday. I was home asleep when the landlady had come in unannounced. Not only that she let a total stranger into the apartment to begin repairs. I woke abruptly to see this man by the back door and this lady nowhere around. Now, when I spoke to her on Wednesday, she neglected to tell me that she was coming back two days later. So, half-dressed and pissed off grabbed something to put on and spoke to this man for about ten minutes.

To speed things up a bit...when she returned I asked her if she was here two days ago, then why the eff she didn't say she was coming back?…

Quest to Getting Back On My Horse #11

So, its that time again. I'm sitting here again writing to you. Well, things are more or less the same. To keep you guys up to date now...I have stopped all communications with that stupid job specialist. It's been like two weeks since I last spoke to him with no sign of talking to him. I had went to Metropolitan Staffing for a job and I had called the guy several times. Well, let's just say that it he never returned my emails or phone calls. So much for "I haven't forgotten you."

Now weeks later, still nothing from the old job. I have stepped up my job search a bit. I figured I have nothing to lose. So hopefully things will pan out soon.

On another note, my bf's sister asked me to help her, my bf and myself with fundraiser. I am kind of hesitant about it because I am not good with interacting with new people. I hate the whole thing to be honest. I become a ball of nerves and just end up feeling inadequate with the people I am trying to talk to. I don'…

Is Reality Tv Consuming Your Life?

I have to admit this to you all. I watch reality tv. Dun-dun-dun. Yeah, I watch them. I watch on occasion Chopped, Restaurant: Impossible, Kitchen Nightmares, and Dancing With The Stars. I used to watch American Chopper and Deadliest Catch when I used to live with my mother, however after I moved I don't have an actual television. But I digress.

I have found with the recent cancellations of certain shows, (especially my Ringer) reality tv seems to still remain a dominant force. I honestly don't understand what is so spectacular about them, but every week the nation tune in to see their stars dance, drink and or fight their way to further stardom.

My question is why are they so popular? Why do they seem to be so many of them?

As far as I can remember being in school, reality tv has kicked the butt of most tv dramas to date. At least that is my opinion. But whatever the draw they seem to continue to suck people in and good shows are dying. What's up with that?

Just A Memory

It's Thursday morning. It's quiet. They sit across from one another. No words are said. Her head is full of things to say, but she remain silent. He is engrossed in an online game. She feels them pulling apart ever so slowly. They argue over the most trivial things, but never fully come to an understanding. They argue about her inability to let things go. He finds himself withdrawing from her. She thinks that it might be over.

Suddenly she is flooded with thoughts of the past. They were happier then. The trips to the countryside, where they would lay under the blanket of stars and talk about their dreams. They would share a kiss every now and then and eventually fall asleep will Orion watched over them. They were lovers but now they were barely anything but. She shook the images out of her mind. The distance, the wall, that had existed for months. And finally it all seemed to come to a head at this moment.

He sat there at his desk, wondering why she was so quiet. He knew her w…

These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things

You know, I have been realizing a few things about myself as of late. I have certain tastes that I have recently required or have recaptured. For one, I used to be an avid reader of sorts back in the day. But I am afraid that I had let hours of couch-potatoing (I know that's not a real word) effect my life in more ways than I could ever imagine. I stopped living. I stopped reading books, going to the movies, etc.

Since I have been unemployed, I figured it was time for me to get back to the things I enjoyed doing before "Life" happened. I began reading more, I started writing again, dropped dead weight people from my life, and  I noticed that I have acquired a taste for abstract art (which is something I couldn't stand for the life of me) and making music. I sing openly to my boyfriend. However, I still shy away from singing publicly, you know stage fright and all. I even took to editing my pictures. I don;t know if it has something to do with my super creative side, …

Quest to Getting Back On My Horse #10

Hi guys,

It is the 1st of May and things are really getting interesting already. I had a job interview yesterday at a staffing agency and another one tomorrow at a warehouse in the Bronx.

Now to catch you up on what's been going on: I had briefly cut ties with the a certain job specialist and found myself not wanting to take my chances with him. But after returning from the staffing agency yesterday, I did the wrongest thing...I returned his call from that morning. I told him that things were looking up and that I had just come from a job interview. He asked about the Middle Marketing job and I told him that I decided not to go with it. I told him that I was going to call the gentleman that I had met with to see what was the status with the job. (By the way, after an email and a phone call, he told me that he is still waiting to hear from his guy regarding the job.)

So, this morning I get calls from this job specialist. When I called him back I left a message. Then he returned my …
