Blowing off the dust of my LJ

For one more thought...
Looking forward to 2012.. Vigil is no more, but I am graduating in May..
The stress in my life is limited, though I really wish I could just make things easier..

There are other things that I can't really air out, but if anyone cares to know just msg me on facebook..
I believe that some of you on the internet have a vague idea.

But I digress.. off to a new adventure..
Vigil's Last CallCollapse )

snowed in

The plan for today, is to maybe draw a bit, watch bad horror movies and possible writing some thoughts out.
Also shoveling... more shoveling..
I am fighting a slight depression wave, thinking about a lot of things. Trying to not distract from any internal processes, so I am just keeping to myself for a while.
At least I have some things to look forward to...
like, eye dr. & I figuring out stuff
more dr. to talk about depression meds, so I need to do a ton of research before I cross that bridge.
I am going to be finishing school, though finishing my major is up for debate. I may just go for my Liberal Arts degree and call it an accomplishment. Especially since I am very eager to start Assistant Managing at a restaurant and that the career path I want. I think going that direction will be worth while. Then possibly getting my MBA in 2 years or so, once I've got a plan and hope to save some money for it.
There is also the whole trying to acquire a waitress job again has been very vexing. My job just had me start training, but I am still needing the extra hours. I am having trouble making ends meet, but my family has been surprisingly generous. It has been helpful for me getting by. But I am keeping my hopes up that one of these waitress jobs I have applied for will interview me. There is one place, though its in the South End, I'd have to get a car to work there. There is great potential there, they said that when they like my attitude and when I am done with school they could look into having me be an assistant manager. I am hoping for something closer to home, but the opportunity with room to grow is hard to pass.
In other news I want to go out to the clubs again, but need to figure out some balance in the agreement I made with Matt. But thats a whole different thing, and I am really trying not to stress to much about things anymore.
Been meditating a bit more, and doing my yoga. Trying to work out and find motivation to work out has so far been internally rewarding. Though I still feel like I am doing it wrong, but the meditation has been really worth while. I started doing all that to classical music, its been really nice reconnecting with myself.
Actually going to ballet on Saturday and start belly dancing on the 19th. So that will help motivate me. Plus that will make up a bit for the dancing at the clubs I'll be skipping out on. Other than that, still thinking about things, and the break up.. things are still rather rocky.. hoping I can negociate a time to go to ceremony, I want to go and suppourt and see my friends. I really want to go to the steam punk night, but I don't think that will happen.. we'll see though.
think think think...Collapse )

there is so much that has happened.

where do I begin?
the big news if it hasn't been made clear. I left Matt, the details are still rather grey and there is still a lot of unresolved issues between us.. So I am hoping we can both figure things out.
Spending our first NYE apart after 6 years was really rough. Plus getting through the night was... difficult... and thankfully I had really great friends to help me through it. These last couple of weeks have got me thinking a lot and I still need to do a lot of soul searching before the weekend.
Hoping that the emotional toll this is taking on the both of us will find some resolution. Now that the elephant in the room has been addressed. Next step is working on everything else.
Here is what my plan is.
Be Happy, Be patient and remember to love myself (new mantra)
_______________
Settle the car
Starting & Finish Classes with a good average
Starting Ballet & Belly Dancing
Working out & Meditation again
Spending more time with my family
Skydiving for Hilly & my 27th in May
(Once I start waitressing again)
Save for Business, Re-invest in stocks
Save for the Caribean (Thanksgiving 2011)
Save for other travel (Fall '11 or Spring '12)
Save for other great investments
Look into Piano lesson (save for piano)

Personal Info:
I don't smoke or drink. I have no pets. During the daytime I work as a pharmacy technician at night I DJ and promote for nightclubs. I'm a fairly quite and private person. When I'm not out of the house working (which is rather often) I'm usually in my room working on my computer or with my DJ gear.

Roommates:
I'm looking for two or three potential roommates. My primary concern is finding people who can cover their share of the bills/rent in a timely manner. My home is my safe haven so finding people I can trust is important to me. Generally my rule for roommates tends to run along the "as it harms none do as you will". If you are interested please feel free to contact Dirge I can always provide more information as needed. Also if you know someone who is looking for a place feel free to pass this along
Contact me if your serious about living here, and I will send you to Dirge.
