Mini-update

June 14th, 2009 (12:11 am)

Well, I guess its been a while. Oh well. Nothing much has happened. I work at ACE Hardware now.. full time. The paycheck is much better. But that's pretty much it.

I leave Monday for Atlanta!! I'm super excited! I'm heading down there for American Idol auditions. I cannot wait to see everyone from last year and just experience the entire thing all over again. After Atlanta auditions I'm stopping in Chicago for the auditions there. It's gonna be a long, tiring week, but I'm ready to feel like a rock star, haha. I'm just gonna pretend I'm going on a mini-tour. Sadly, I'm not the headliner, but ya gotta start somewhere, haha. I'm hoping this year works out for me a bit better than last year. As badly as I want to make it all the way, I'll be happy just making it past the first round. Cross your fingers. :)

So, I'm back in Fremont. I was gone only a month before I couldn't afford to stay anymore. Finding a job was near impossible. So I packed up and came home. I'm still working my internship from home, doing what I can to help out. Once I can afford to or I find a paying job down there I'm going back.

The battle of the bands I've been working on since October started last weekend. I was told it went well. I wished I could have been there, although the 3 bands who competed last week were not my cup of tea; all metal, scream bands. The next couple of weeks should be better; the bands are more southern rock oriented.

Getting hours back at the grocery store is looking to be a struggle. They've cut so many people's hours there and apparently a lot has changed. It's not lookin' too good.

Rome, GA .... such fun

January 13th, 2009 (01:39 am)
current song: Wait - Patti LuPone [Sweeney Todd]

I've been back in Georgia for just over 2 weeks now. I can't decide if I'm homesick or not. Some days are far worse than others.

I've been doing internship stuff from home for now. I was supposed to go to the "office" tomorrow but my boss quit smoking on Friday and apparently isn't feeling too great, so she asked me to wait and come on Wednesday instead. No biggy. All I've done really is make concert posters. Its a good thing my boss thinks I'm so good at it, otherwise I'd get really sick of it. She pays people to make the posters for her but I guess she's realized its better to get to the non-paid intern to do it (and do a far better job, if I do say so myself..)

I don't have a paying job yet, which sucks. I've applied a few places but haven't heard anything yet. I should give them a call. I've been incredibly bored these past 2 weeks without anything to do. For a while I couldn't pick up the wireless here at the house (we don't actually have our own wireless, we use the neighbors...shhh don't tell anyone). I would end up going to Panera and use their free wi-fi. I felt a little awkward sitting in Panera by myself using their wireless, but oh well. I discovered yesterday that if I sit upstairs next to the window I can get the neighbor's wireless. Thank goodness, I wasn't sure I was going to be able to afford to drive all the way across town to Panera every time I needed to get online.

I spent New Years at my friend Bekah's house. That was fun (from what I can remember...oops). We had a bonfire and just hung out. I apparently drank too much, which I blame entirely on Bekah's brother. Not really entirely. I was the fool who thought she could out drink the Navy guy. Idiot. I paid for it that night and the next day.

The roommates have been good so far. I was a bit concerned about living with 2 of them but so far it hasn't been that bad. The first week it was just me and Caryn because the other girls hadn't come back from break yet. That was kind of boring when she had to work and I was at the house by myself. No one had come back from break yet so I didn't have anyone to hang out with. I really am no fun by myself. Not that I'm always that much fun when there are people around either, but whatever.

The new season of American Idol premiers tomorrow (I guess technically tonight since its almost 2:00 a.m. on Tuesday). Make sure to watch for me! My face may make an appearance during the Louisville, KY auditions. Awe, I miss American Idol auditions. I'm excited for next summer's auditions...that is if I can afford to audition. Hopefully they'll be somewhere close to wherever I am.

We're having a party at the house this weekend for Caryn and Bethany's birthdays. Pretty sure its going to be an all weekend thing, and I'm not sure how I feel about that but oh well. If it makes them happy then I'll put a smile on my face and try to enjoy myself. I'm sure it'll be fun, until there are so many drunk people running around this house that I'll want to shoot someone.

Although I have nothing to do tomorrow, besides write up a rough-draft email to potential sponsors for an upcoming event Music Matters is having, I think I'll go to bed. I was doing so well going to bed before 11:00, until last night and tonight. I need to get back on my old schedule again.

current song: Colbie Caillat - Older

I had my wisdom teeth out. That was not fun. It's been just over 2 weeks. The holes in my mouth are finally starting to not bother me, but they're still there and its not fun when food gets caught in them. Gross. The vicodin they gave me is a wonderful thing. I haven't taken any in a while, but they're wonderful when I can't sleep. They knock me right out. I had my teeth out on my birthday of all days. Cool birthday. I didn't have any plans anyway, so I guess it was one way to celebrate. I'm excited to say I'm 22, though. I was over being 21.

I've started my internship, but I haven't left for Georgia yet. She's giving me tasks I can do from home until I get down there. I've been in charge of setting up the Battle of Gwinnett (a battle of the bands competition) myspace and getting friends. It doesn't sound like much but good grief its taken me a long time. There are so many people she wants me to friend. I'm not even close to being done and it took me 5 or 6 hours to get finished what I got finished today. Being on the computer isn't near as much fun when you have to be.

I'm leaving for Georgia on December 27. About time, I know. Its only taken 2 months for it to finally happen. I'll get into Rome on the 28th, leave for my boss' house on the 29th, which is about an hour and a half drive from Rome. Then on the morning of the 30th we're leaving for Sanford, FL for a New Years show that one of the bands is having. I should get back into Rome the 1st or 2nd and then I don't know. Hopefully I'll get a final schedule somewhere in the mix of all that. I need to get into Barnes & Noble when I get back and see about getting my job back. I've already talked to them about the possibility and they said they'd try. I'll try to remember to give them another call tomorrow.

I'm not at all ready for Christmas. I haven't bought a single gift yet. I'm going shopping with my mom tomorrow though, so hopefully I'll get some done. Even though I have no idea what anyone wants. Fun. I don't even know what I want. I don't really need anything..except maybe a new car, but that's not happening.

Turning the other cheek

November 15th, 2008 (08:59 pm)

This isn't toward any in specific.

I feel like I've grown up a lot this summer. I've learned how to handle different situations. I've seen things that I wish I didn't have to. I used to hold grudges. I'd forgive but never forget. There are some situations I will never forget but I'm learning to get past them.

I've made some mistakes, and I've owned up to those mistakes. I've apologized to who I needed to and I like to think that I've made amends.

You don't have to like me, you don't have to love me, you don't have to respect me, you don't have to wish me well, you don't have to care. But I will always do that for you. No matter what happens, I'll always do right, whether you reciprocate those feelings is completely up to you. I'll always turn the other cheek. Its not worth anyone's time to stay angry or stay hateful. Those feelings usually just make matters worse, at least that's always been the case for me. I've found that its just so much easier and makes for a better life to just love.

I hope people can find it in their hearts to get past the past and get over the mistakes that we've all made. If they can't do that then I accept that. I'll always continue to love and I'll always be here for you.

I voted! I'm not going to say which way I voted, at least not right now. I'm happy with the way I voted. It was really hard for me all day. When I woke up this morning I wasn't going to vote, but something kept telling me I needed to. All day long I didn't know who I was going to vote for, but at the last minute something just hit me and my mind was made up. I'm not interested in hearing who is ahead, all I care about is the final outcome. Honestly, I still don't even know who I want to win, I'm still very conflicted, but I can say I voted.

annoyed

current mood: annoyed

Good grief, I didn't think my opinions would stir up so much drama. I find it funny that I would be called overly opinionated. When do I ever state my opinion? If you know me, you know that answer is hardly ever. I keep to myself pretty often unless something really bothers me. I complain about everything? This may have been true at one point. I'll agree to that. However, I rarely complain about anything anymore, its not worth my time or anyone else's. I'd rather just do something about it and get it over with.

If you're going to have the audacity to slam me on my own journal at least have the guts to come out and say who you are. That way we can have our words like mature people and just get it over with. If you have a problem with me, what good is it going to do you to talk about it anonymously?

If you'd like to grow up and tell me who you are I'd be more than happy to listen.

I may regret posting this later on down the road, but whatever. Forget regret or life is yours to miss.

I'm sick of not being able to have an opinion at home. When it comes to religion, politics, etc. I have a very different view on things than my mom and brother, and when Jon is home they like to gang up on me and basically tell me my opinions are wrong. So what, I don't like Sarah Palin's views. This is America, I'm allowed to have my own opinion and make my own decisions. So what, I don't think homosexuality is wrong; gay marriage should be allowed. Its none of my business, its none of Jon's or my mom's business. Its between those people and God or whatever higher power they look to. I'm not going to pass judgment. If I'm not mistaken God said to love your neighbor, or am I wrong? Taxes would go up if gays were given the same opportunities to marry, so what? I'm already paying for heterosexuals to get married. Everyone deserves the same opportunities in this country, I'm not going to believe its okay to tell someone they can't get married just because they want to marry someone of the same sex. Let them be happy! This country could use a little bit more happiness. I'm so sick of this election. I'm pretty sure I won't vote. I don't really like either of the nominees. I tend to lean more towards Obama but there are things he supports that I don't and the same goes for McCain. At this point I think I would have rather had Hilary Clinton.

current song: Ashley Monroe - Pain Pain

Finally talked to my new boss the other day. We're waiting for her oldest son to go back into the Navy before I start. It should be November, for sure. He's just waiting to get a call from the Navy, then I'll get my call, then I'll have 2 weeks to get down there. I'm really excited about getting started. I get my holidays off, so I'll be home for the holidays. The only holiday I don't get off is New Years which is fine because I get to spend it in Florida working a show. How exciting?! I'm beyond excited.

Work has been keeping me busy. Wednesday was my only day off this week and that's only because I asked for it off. I guess I shouldn't mind working so much considering I need the money. I am so tired though. I'm looking forward to Sunday and taking a nap after church. :)
