Slightly better news...

First, *huggles massively flist* You all are the worlds best at reminding me I have more to smile about than frown about! We all need the lift, and the other day was my almost giving up post. Thanks for reminding me why I don't give up and I have a support system.

*passes tissues*

Ok and on to some slightly better news!

* I found and applied to 3 newspapers here in Texas. Only one response and that was to ask what I have been doing since September. Just said been working on freelance pieces (I have, just more in fandom kind of things, but I am good at pulling stuff out of my ass), and part time jobs. Well he responded and gave me another lead! not bad. except he labeled me "entry level" grrr! I just need about another 2 or so years and than I will not be labeled as "entry level" - SOMEONE GIMME A CHANCE!!!
* Went to the courthouse to find about a possible job as the County Judge's secretary, and the secretary gave me some other positions. She will call sometime today to let me know about what she has found. Also have to ask if her position is opening.
* Went to the funeral home (I live in back of it, it's not THAT odd... quiet neighbors), and talked to the director's wife, she also works at the courthouse. She confirmed the JC's secretary position is open and that one of the home loan places is looking for a title searcher. So this morning I gathered my stuff and went there and turned in my resume. We shall see.
* I went to the Marlin Independent School District to pick up an application to be a substitute teacher. I had picked up an app a while back, but lost it. So over Christmas Mom and I were brain storming, and she suggested to try for it. Who knows, I may like it, and most places will do an dual teach/credit kind of certification. I said if I do that, I'd go for reading or literature and most likely in the High School. Who knows I may go crazy and like it.

Also in my journeys of this morning, I also went to the shoe repair guy. My fire pants should be done by Monday or so... So I shall go round when I finish doing the application me thinks.

Ah! A totally random thing (wow, like you all expect sane linear thoughts from me normally) today is Aset's 6 month birthday!!! so here is a little collage of my baby!


I feel bad, I should do one of Isis too. At the moment Isis is on my lap, under the blanket I have wrapped around myself. She is exceptionally cuddly when she is cold. She warms up and warms me too! Purrrr-fect!

Well... kinda close...

What Christine Means

You are very open. You communicate well, and you connect with other people easily.
You are a naturally creative person. Ideas just flow from your mind.
A true chameleon, you are many things at different points in your life. You are very adaptable.

You are truly an original person. You have amazing ideas, and the power to carry them out.
Success comes rather easily for you... especially in business and academia.
Some people find you to be selfish and a bit overbearing. You're a strong person.

You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You're always up to something.
You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense.
You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.

You tend to be pretty tightly wound. It's easy to get you excited... which can be a good or bad thing.
You have a lot of enthusiasm, but it fades rather quickly. You don't stick with any one thing for very long.
You have the drive to accomplish a lot in a short amount of time. Your biggest problem is making sure you finish the projects you start.

You are the total package - suave, sexy, smart, and strong.
You have the whole world under your spell, and you can influence almost everyone you know.
You don't always resist your urges to crush the weak. Just remember, they don't have as much going for them as you do.

You are a seeker. You often find yourself restless - and you have a lot of questions about life.
You tend to travel often, to fairly random locations. You're most comfortable when you're far away from home.
You are quite passionate and easily tempted. Your impulses sometimes get you into trouble.

You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the world better than most people.
You also have a very active imagination. You often get carried away with your thoughts.
You are prone to a little paranoia and jealousy. You sometimes go overboard in interpreting signals.

You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.
You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.
At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.

So um, some to most of it is pretty true. That's kinda freaky... who's been spying on me!
