I went to a job fair today that was for educators and future educators at my alma mater. I think things went pretty well. I went around to the different tables and got some information from the various schools and districts.

There were a few home health businesses, which I thought a bit odd since this job fair was for teachers and others in the education field. Another thing that surprised me was the fact that there weren't any representatives from the city school district, nor the local county. You'd think there would be since they were local and that these future educators may want to have some options closer to home. Whatever...

I was pretty proud of myself for being very professional. I shook hands and introduced myself and would ask the necessary questions. Some of them were unable to say whether or not there would be any librarian positions open, but to check back in the summertime when the majority of the postings would be available. Some said there would be some retirements coming, so to check back in a few months.

I did get swag and lots of other information, like salaries and information about the schools. I handed out all of my employment information, like my cover letter, my resume, my test scores and license information. Most just had resumes, but I figure if I can give them more information, that's less they have to look into and it's stuff that can be on hand as they look through all the piles of resumes they got.

The weather isn't very cooperative lately. While it's been pretty warm most of the week, today was cooler than usual and I got a headache on top of it all. I seem to be getting a lot of migraines in the springtime due to the up and down weather patterns. I wish things would level out so that my head can be at peace for once.

My knitting has been getting better. I still haven't figured out socks, but I've been practicing my magic loop circular knitting and I've gotten the hang of it, for the most part. I just got to keep at it and keep getting better.

*vibrates with excitement* I think I have a job!! The lady at the Medical Records department called me back today and asked me if I was still interested in working at Medical Records. I said I was (what was I gonna say? No?) and she asked if I could go down to the HR department to fill out some paperwork and that way the process could get started. I'll have to go tomorrow since mom has my car today, but I'm so excited!! I have a job!! *twirls* I think I have to undergo some training first in order to become familiar with the electronic records they use nowadays, but that's perfectly fine. I doubt they'd toss someone into the deep water before teaching them how to swim (or at least dog paddle. How was that for an analogy).

I'll probably have to post in the evenings after I start, but that's no big deal since my computer's in my bedroom I have all the privacy I need. I also have to retrain myself to go to bed earlier...

And a little note to my "lil bro": Sorry I wasn't on when you finished rebooting, but I had to close some programs due to slow performance. But, I saw a quote that made me think of what we were talking about (and is useful in general): "The ultimate lesson all of us have to learn is unconditional love, which includes not only others but ourselves as well." -- Elisabeth Kübler-Ross.

And I wish I could get my journal background back again... *grr*

OK, from the highs to the lows. I don't know if anyone has heard from the news lately, but Five Girls Dead in Amish School Shooting. My first thought was, "What the hell is wrong with some people?!" I mean, this was an Amish school. I mean, public High School shootings are bad enough, but to have some guy come in and release the boys and the pregnant teacher, but hold the girls and the assistant hostage and then shoot them execution style before shooting himself... is indescribable. The Amish are know for being a peace-loving, simple, highly religious people who pretty much keep to themselves and have little to do with the outside world, or the "English." Apparently he was targeting young girls specifically for something that happened 20 years ago... I just... can't say any more about this horrific tragedy...

Trivia of the day: The females of many species of moths are wingless. To compensate for this, their bodies are always larger and heavier than those of their male counterparts.

Be sure to watch Veronica Mars tonight at 9PM on the CW

Well, Ernesto came... and went. There was a lot of rain and wind but not much else. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining. I mean, it could've been a lot worse.

Hopefully I can finish up my file burning so I can get other stuff done. I don't have much left, but I want to double check and see if I got everything burned that I wanted to before I delete stuff. I like to be cautious.

I need to call Human Resources today so I can see where my possible employment stands. I'll probably wait until this afternoon to do it though to give them a bit of a chance to call me.

We're still hanging in there after Ori. It still feels a bit strange. I think the other cats might be wondering what's going on.

As for the rest of the day, just basic household chore stuff. Take out the trash, do the dishes, blah blah blah...

Trivia of the day: Early in his career, William F. Buckley, Jr. was employed as a Spanish teacher at Yale.

*sigh* What can I say about this weekend? It was a very good weekend. *pats weekend's head* Yes you were!! Go get the stick!

*ahem* Anyway, onto the countdown:


Well, I went to the Temp Agency to drop off my resume and fill out an application. I made an appointment for an orientation on Wednesday, so maybe things will pan out in the end...

As I left, though, mom called me and told me that the lady from the apartments we've been looking at said one was becoming available in the beginning of May. It's a two bedroom one bath on the first floor. Even though it's only a one bathroom instead of a two bathroom like we originally wanted, we decided to go for it anyway. I mean, we've been sharing a bathroom now for nearly six months now and have survived thus far. I mean, yeah, it'd be nice to have my own bathroom again, but hey, a place to live is a place to live.

Mom's also going to call about this one duplex that's a two bed two bath and has a slightly larger floor plan. The only thing is, they don't take pets. Mom called them and said she'd pay more per month if they'd allow cats. She left a voice message for the realtor since she'd already left for the day. She's gonna call back today to see what the sitch is. But hey, if we don't get into this place, at least we have an alternative, which is more than could be said even a few days ago.

And we didn't go out to dinner like I suspected we wouldn't. We pushed it to this coming Friday.


Most of Saturday was spent running around doing various errands. First off, we went to the storage place and put more of our things into the storage unit. A massive packing endeavour is being initiated, so we're just trying to do our part by removing our stuff that doesn't need to be there. Then we went to the apartment offices so we could drop off part of our security deposit. Mom didn't want to do the entire thing just in case the duplex comes through and we go with it. We wouldn't get any of that other money back. However, the lady had originally said that it'd be available on the 5th of May, she then said it'd be closer to the 11th. Mom started to panic a bit. We have to be out of this house by the 7th. She mentioned it to the leasing agent who then went onto explain the situation is with the guy who makes sure the apartment is in move in condition before another tenant moves in. He said he has 8 apartments he has to clean by the weekend of the 5th, which is why he said the one we're looking at might not be ready by then. She did say, however, she intends to tell him that we need to move as soon as possible and that she'd even clean the place herself if it'll mean things get done sooner. I said, if push comes to shove, we can crash with someone for a few days until it's ready. So, we'll just have to wait and see what the solution will be.

We did drive by the duplex that's for rent. At least, the one we though it was. The street is nothing but duplexes and mom couldn't be 100% sure of the number, so we didn't know if the one we saw was the actual one available or not. Me, I thought it looked a bit dumpy on the outside, but then it could look very nice on the inside and it may not be the one we saw at all. So, who can say...


Easter Sunday!! We had to get up early becasue mom wanted to go to sunrise services. It was held in a different location that it was in the past... so we got a little lost. We went to the wrong beach. *facepalm* But, we eventually got there and we didn't miss too much. It seemed a little long to me and the speakers were a little hard to hear due to the waves and such. I might've enjoyed it more if not for the Red Tide. Perfect timing, as always...

We went back to the house and I layed down for a bit before getting dressed for church. Then, after awhile, we went to church. We usually have two services, one at 9:00 and the other at 10:30. This time we only had one at 10:30.

After church, we got changed again and headed over to my aunt's for dinner. It's always nice to got to the family functions, but it felt strange since this was the first time we celebrated a holiday without grandma. And I actually got to play a little of my cousin's PS2 that he'd brought! 'Star Wars Battlefront II' I played (as Aayla Secura. She had two lightsabers). And I actually won! I was surprised since I've never really played video games before. I kinda liked it. I may eventually become a gamer after all...

Then, we ate dinner and me and one of my other cousin's played 'Cranium' that she'd brought. It was just the two of us, even though it would've been a lot more fun with more people, but they all wimped out. It was kinda fun, though. I won that one too. Then, my mom and my aunt started going through some of my grandma's photo albums and scrapbooks she'd had. The divided some of the pictures into various piles for different family members. Then, since we walked over, we went home before it got too dark. All in all, it was pretty fun.

Fandom wise, I downloaded some of the 'Saiyuki' volumes I dont have yet (relax, I'll still buy them when they come out). I read volume 4 on Saturday. We get to see Hakkai's youkai form once again... from the side though. And we meet Hazel, who, I believe, has the longest story arc so far. Strange guy.

Today I need to catch up with some of my FL since I wasn't able to get on at all yesterday and I want to try to clean up my room stuff in preparation of our moving. I don't know when it's going to be exactly, but I'll be sure to let you know since I'll have to be offline again then.

Trivia of the day: Pleonexia is a clinical term for morbid greediness.

Now back to your regular programming...
