Feeling good, feeling great...

MAN! Today was a good day and I'm feeling like the universe is trying to prepare me for something. No sooner than I had posted my last entry, I got a phone call from a placement co that I signed up with after my stint at FIDM (back in SEPTEMBER). They wanted to forward my resume to a company. A company that I would LOVE to work for. I submitted. I got an interview.

Stellar, right?

Soon thereafter, things at my present employer started to happen that made it look highly unsavory to me. Missing money from my paycheck, headbutts with coworkers, little things here and there. Coincidence? We'll see.

I'm so excited that I even got to interview. Getting this job would mean finally, FINALLY, beginning my career.


I'm so excited.

Outside of that, I've made the decision to only use natural products in my hair, so no more store bought stuff for me. I just got 2lbs if shea butter (they were like, $4 each!) and some oils from Madina and am excited to see what happens to my hair and skin in the process. I've heard such great things.

Overall, today was a good day. Tomorrow, I'm headed out to Debut, the FIDM fashion show featuring the 3rd year fashion design students and Saturday, I have a wedding to go to.

Life is feeling better. I like it.

And this is how I'm really feeling

I swear...I'm so dissatisfied with my occupation right now. I paid out oodles and oodles of money to get a degree (2 actually) and am doing nothing related to either one. What's worse is that some of my friends who graduated with me are doing big.things.

I know I shouldn't try to compare my life with others, but sometimes I can't help but thinking that I've wasted so much time and effort to be where I am. It seriously depresses me sometimes. I could be doing so much more.

Then again, the future is unwritten, so who knows what's ahead. I do know, however, that something is bound to pan out for someone who busts their ass consistently with everything. I'm just tired of waiting and obstacles and setbacks and miscellaneous happenings that tie my hands and force me in a different direction.

Just had to vent.

And We're Back...

And not in a good way.

My car, that I just got out of the shop for the sum of nearly $1,300, is back in the damn shop. For some reason unbeknown to me, my car decided not to start when I was ready to leave work today.
I seem to have the worst luck with cars. *sigh*

If this is more than a $350 fix, I'm getting a new car. Just like mom and sister apparently. There must be something in the water.

My dear mother...

Just called me to let me know that she bought a "new" car. A Chevy Aveo. It's something she's been looking at for a few months now, so she went on a whim and got one.

If you knew my mom, you would know that this is the most out-of-character thing she has ever done.

Good Lord. What would Daddy think? LOL.
