I applied to two jobs this week. One doing data entry at a place that helps people and one as a proofreader for Mongoose Publishing. The latter of which seems more likely to work out, as they already emailed me back with details and I’ve expressed my continued interest. So, that will be cool.

Back on the yoga, tai chi, and meditation train, as well as working harder to eat better. Yes, I still have more Girlscout cookies to go, but I’ll be better about rationing the rest. Gotta have some incentives.

Spring is definitely here. 80 degree weather this week. And tornadoes. Mustn’t forget the tornadoes and hail on Sunday. But the birds are happy and the grass is green. I have even opened the blinds and turned on the AC.

Hurray! 150 Posts!

One week in and the parties and activities are lining up. I can’t possibly go to all of them, probably won’t make it to half of them, and I don’t even have the slightest idea if I’m going to attempt a costume this year. I haven’t really gone in for costumes other than ren fest garb for years now. I’m not very crafty, and I don’t want to spend money on something I’m only going to wear once(wore my prom dress both years). I don’t really dress for Halloween either, not a fan of orange, though, as anyone will tell you, I have plenty of black clothing.

Last week was a big week, not much else has happened since then. Got the surgeon’s office sorted out, for only $5 more than we intended a month. Hospital still not returning calls. Money’s tight by not overwhelmingly so anymore. I took some online editing tests this week. That was oddly entertaining. Did better on editing than proofreading, so I’ve got some studying to do if I really want to make a go at being an editor again.

I want to earn a living by writing, but I’m not experienced in the type of writing that is actually money making – nonfiction, technical, articles, copywriting. I’ve been randomly curious about it off and on, but it seems like I need a different type of education or background to do that kind of thing professionally. Not to mention I did everything I could in school to write stories instead of papers. This, blogging about my life(and previously and currently journaling on paper), is the most non-fiction writing I’ve ever done voluntarily, and my life isn’t really all that interesting to people who don’t know me. I tried to write stories for books like Chicken Soup once, but I didn’t really have any compelling true stories to tell. I love my life, but I don’t think it’s inspiring.

Anyway, things to do, people to see and all that. Until next week. Enjoy life and love each other.
