I finished my administrative office management program back at the end of January. I was voted “Most Professional” by all my peers. I got my MOS certification for Microsoft Word and in three weeks I’m going to take my Excel certification. I’m nervous but excited. After that I have to study for Outlook and PowerPoint. In addition I’m going to keep plugging along in professional development pursuits. I hope you guys had a nice Easter 🙂
I hope everyone has a lovely holiday season. I wish I could apologize for me lack of posting but as I’ve been very busy in class. I just looked at my stats and noticed how far they’ve dropped 😦 I do prefer quality over quantity but I still feel sorry that there hasn’t been many goings on around here
These past few days have been a whirlwind of emotions and realizations. On Monday, I started a course that is two weeks of resume tweaking and cover letter writing. The remaining eight weeks are administrative skills learning. Honestly, at first I was apprehensive, scared and felt frustrated. For me with my issues it’s been hard to get and keep a job. But now I feel like things are turning around. I feel a sense of cautious hope and I want to do everything I can to be someone potential employers want 🙂 I hope you guys are doing well and I’m off to sleep.
So I’ve been pondering going back to school to get an associates degree. I could do a gen ed degree where I only have 7 classes I need to take, sadly some of which I have zero interest in. The other option is to get a degree in something I actually want to study 🙂 I’m kind of torn in a way. I still have time to think about it though. How’ve you guys been?
Did you miss me? I’m laying here with all these rambling thoughts and I thought I’d check in and try to start posting again 🙂 I was also thinking about posting in general whether it be on Facebook, twitter, other social networks, or here and that too for me thinking that if you want to keep reading my blog, I should post interesting stuff.
My life has been in a state of normalcy with the occasional hiccup here and there. I quit my volunteer position and though it was with a heavy heart and an unsure future that I did so, I feel at peace. Is that weird?
I’ve been applying for jobs and weirdly it’s been kind of fun. It’s making me realize I might want to go back to school.
Well it’s fall so get warm with cider, fires, hoodies and jumping in the leaves ❤
It’s been a long time since I last posted. With all the mishmash of bad things in the news mixed with the politics, I just don’t feel like trying to talk about something like that. Yes, they are important issues but the last thing I want is a political free for all and fights with words strewn across my blog.
World of Warcraft: Legion pre-patch just released and normally I’d be playing it but my gaming heart belongs to another…Elder Scrolls Online:Tamriel Unlimited. There’s loads more to do than I think WoW ever had during the run I had with it. Ive been throwing my free time into it and honestly? I feel much happier with it. Not only is there lots to do but the story is more immersive to me, the lines between good and evil aren’t as clear cut and to me there’s more to think about than just running from quest giver to quest giver.
I’ve had some big thoughts in the morning concerning myself on a deep level as I try to connect with the world outside myself. I feel as I get older I have (or I try to have) a deeper understanding of things around me that I rarely had to think of growing up. I fear it has made me more cynical and wary of others but also more true to myself and knowing with whom I should associate myself.
I hope you all are doing well and I’m unapologetic about my lack of posting, only that I believe quality is better by all means than quantity 🙂 I hope you’re enjoying your summer (or winter for those in the southern hemisphere)
I love this so much. I think this is what I need to start searching for 🙂 I mean happiness is fleeting
Life sometimes wallops us on the back side.
Have you ever found that? Actually more often than not you are just amiably piloting your way through the maze of your life and with no warning you get a fat slap on your rear end that sends you careening through the hedge to the other side of who knows where.
There you sit – aching seat side,totally confused and bewildered. I have to actually chuckle because a few years ago I thought that was just totally not on. How dare we get a butt whacking when we are seeking after everlasting happiness … the nerve of it.
Here is the kicker though – and not in the butt or maybe that is exactly what it is – life is not about finding happiness.
Say what? Can that be true – after all these years if us searching with such vigour and…

Happy Easter everyone 🙂 I hope the bunny has been good to you. Today is Jazzys first Easter and I love how much that makes me feel fuzzy and happy 🙂
I have a lot to update you on, I hope your March is going well. It will be the start of spring soon (though we’re forecasted to get snow this weekend). I got a hamster roughly a month ago. Jazzy is the cutest little Syrian. From the time I got her she’s a little over 2 months old 🙂 She resides in a 35 gallon bin cage and she spends a lot of time running on her wheel. She takes treats from my hand and lets me pet her. She loves apples and melons. I love her to pieces and I want the best for her always.
I realized something today… Some people get on the Dysfunction Roller Coaster™ and never get off. They complain about their lives, relationships, jobs, circumstances, and will scream into the abyss, “I want off this ride!” Yet when faced with opportunities for growth, their response is to ignore all they’ve been told, all they’ve been shown, and grip the rusty, rundown, barely gripping the tracks, train instead.
I had to ask myself why this mattered since it’s not my behavior, not my choices…
What I came to is that these types of people trigger me.
Their dysfunctional worldview conflicts with my functional worldview, and it’s a problem.
I sat with this a bit and thought about all the people in my life that I’ve had to step away from. Before today, there was no pattern connecting these people. Yes, most of them had some sort of PTSD or similar issue…
