let's try this again. 2013

I'm flying the coop again.
Heading back to San Francisco for a few months & hopefully off to Australia for a few weeks. I'm going to try to blog about it. I promise to work on my formatting and post more pictures.
It should be much better than last time!

going back home to the west coast.

WELL WELL WELL. WHAT DO WE HAVE HERE? A BLOG POST?? A BLOG POST. 17 MONTHS AFTER MY LAST BLOG POST. better late than never! Well I am currently riding on a train down from Los Angeles to Oceanside, California. I am out west for about 7 weeks and decided I should blog about it. What am I doing out west? Well I am here to gain clarity and peace. I was filled with anger, heartache and confusion back home & an opportunity arose for me to take some time off work. So like any reasonable woman, I decided to go heard goats in the Big Sur Mountains. So get ready for something. I'm not sure what yet, but I am sure it will be entertaining!

mercury in retrograde?

howdy strangers.
how's the living?
the sun is shining, the weather is warm. candy is going to fall out of the sky.

here is my sad update.
shit was bananas last month. mercury was apparently in retrograde & i felt it's effects.
+ i booked a great band, dale earnhardt jr. jr. to play at a local music venue in Fort Wayne. it was a snowball effect & i learned a lot about promotions, which was cool, but they had A LOT of people i had to coordinate with. all in all the show was amazing & i made a flyer for the event.

i painted it all myself, because i have zero graphic design skills. it was such a joy to paint again, i do not get to do it nearly enough!

+ on the day of the show, when i was running around like a chicken with my head cut off. my beloved cat looks ill & i have to take her to the vet. the vet says she is sick, but they need to do surgery & she will be fine. whatta bummer, but at least she will make it. i am at the venue, trying to get things together & i get a call from the vet saying she is dying of kidney failure & i have to put her down in the morning. WORST DAY EVER.

+ the show was a success! i went to bed at 3am & had to be at work at 5am the next was my last day of work, as the program i was working for closed due to funding issues. :(

+ after my shift i had to go put my cat to sleep. it was a very stressful weekend.

cool blog, brah.

the dog days.

Listening to "The dog days are over" by Florence and the Machine. 6 months after everyone has told me to listen to them. Thinking about life as always. I cant help but feel my dog days are beginning! I dont know why i am so resistant to the everyday life. I always have been. Floating around working random jobs because I find them to be interesting. Made for some interesting life experiences for sure, but now I am looking for stability. I'm also looking for an apartment where I can have a table! Currently looking for a job that will allow me to get $paid$. I found work at an independent living facility for troubled teenage girls with/without children. I like working there for the most part, but the pay is shit (relatively speaking)& sometimes i have to work weekends and 12 hour shifts.
I am going to sell my soul and find a job where I dont have to deal with drama/real life and make enough money to actually save for something, like chairs for my table in my apartment!

I'm all jazzed up on coffee. And getting distracted from reformatting my resume. yuck.

cancer sucks

i recently found out that a former classmate of mine has a rare form of cancer. i set up an account to raise money because i didnt think i would be able to attend the benefit dinner he is having, nor would others.

so if anyone is interested in donating here is the link to the page!
