Other project! So proud of him!

First, we would like to begin by saying thank you to everyone who has supported us throughout our entire year. We could not have done this without you. We realize our message has reached many different people and has motivated and inspired others. The Ayden Project couldn’t have asked for more. So again, THANK YOU! […]

Big and Exciting Day Tomorrow

Tomorrow my brother is getting married. I am the mistress of ceremonies. I’m both excited and nervous because I want this to go off without any problems. This is going to be a long day for me but I’m ready for it. Maybe Sunday I’ll get to relax? Not likely.

I wanted to do that today because of the rain but it stopped around 5pm and yeah I totally did a ton of Pokemon Go legendary raid battles. I got a Lugia finally and I got a Moltres the first day. No Articuno for me. I tried 4 different times and no luck. I’m ready for the next one to start but that’s not until next week.

I just did 10 days straight at work. I dont want to do that again but I’m having 4 days off now for the wedding so I know that it’ll probably be happening most likely again. I had an interview on Thursday too. I’m crossing my fingers on that one. I need to get onto a steady job and finally get my feet into my degree. I don’t use any of it at my current job. I also don’t want to be doing 60+ hours a week during December.

So please keep me and my family in your thoughts this weekend. And I’m hoping greatly not only that the wedding is fantastic but also that I get my job.

Adventure Bust

Last week was adventure week for Pokemon Go. This means there was an increase in Rock Pokemon which was also supposed to mean some rare pokemon for people to find. Unfortunately this entire week was a bust except for the “buddy candy” system. Many people did not find the variety of Pokemon we were told were going to be available. Myself only saw the same 3 pokemon throughout the entire week. I had Geodudes, Rhynhorns and Slugmas. That was the only three that I saw mainly. I did see an Onix once but that was something I figured the system game me, not the week.


I myself went onto the Pokemon Go Facebook page to see what was going on. And it seemed to be the same thing for everyone. These events have become more of a let down then actually fun for many people. The Water event and the Grass Pokemon event were probably the best ones for me compared to anything else.

These events are only happening because Pokemon is trying to get it’s players back. Many of my friends who played religiously from the start have stopped because the game has become a let down. Pokemon are not as available as they used to me the same pokemon continue to appear, no matter where you’re playing at. I’m still trying to grow my Pokedex and evolve pokemon so right now it’s not a huge bother to me, plus I’m out for the exercise too.

I just wish that if you’re going to advertise the special things available then they should be there for the players, not just a select few in the right locations.

Beautiful Weather and I’m Down

Nothing sucks more then when it’s beautiful weather outside and you’re sick. That’s me right now. I’ve someone caught Strep. Yes I know it’s highly contagious. I’ve also had it before so I knew what I had before I went into the Doctor’s. Which also sucks because I’m still in my 90 days at work so I don’t have insurance. I can’t wait to see that bill.

I’m currently past my 24 hour stage on meds so I’m no longer contagious to others. I however, can’t return to work until tomorrow. I’m okay with that too. I’ve gotten my energy back but I’m wondering how long before I crash. I’m hoping my work wont punish me for this either, I could totally see them firing me over this. I did have a doctor’s note but some places that doesn’t mean anything.

I also haven’t been to the movies in a while. I’ve got a list going of things I want to see but haven’t had the time to really go and see them. Plus, I’m not afraid to see a movie by myself but doing it all the time gets old really quick.

I’m also learning the joys of taking care of a turtle. I’ve had a little bit of a rough time finding the right filter for his tank. I had to do a bit of research and finally got the right one, cost me a bit more then the first one but I’m on 2 weeks in and haven’t had to change the water yet. Plus it doesn’t smell near as much either. I wish I could do that for my Betta fish but their tank is too small for a filter, plus I don’t have a lot of room for 2 large tanks.


I’ve been busy. I’ve had quite a few interviews lately but once again am still not getting hired. This is crazy to me when I used to be told I was under qualified and now I’m being told I’m over qualified. I truly can not catch a break. 

Its really starting to get to me too. I’m getting frustrated and while most would give up, I’m not. I’m not a fan of the job I have now. Yes it pays well but otherwise I spend most my time being bored. I’m not someone who enjoys that. When I’m at work, I like to keep busy. I’m not getting that here, I’m way over qualified. I moved from one job that didn’t use my skills to another.

I need some good news. I’ve been busy with family things too. I get very little free time lately. This is probably also part of the problem. I’m disappointed with myself right now. I feel like I’m not good enough too. Needless to say 2017 has been a very rough year for me. I need to catch a break.

I get that life gets like this but sometimes you just need a step in the right direction. That’s what I’m looking for right now. So while I haven’t been able to do reviews for movies. I’ve been watching some HULU series that I want to get some reviews up for. I’m hoping to have those done and up by next week. Hopefully it works out.

So don’t give up on me. I’m still here. I’m just busy with everything but what I want to be doing. Here’s to hoping something goes my way soon. 

Where have I been?

Where have I been? It’s been a long time since I posted. Well I’m here. I’ve just been busy. I’ve been working a lot with this new job (hoping to be done with it soon). I’m not happy about the job but it’s paying the bills so that’s what matters.

I’ve been interviewing for other jobs but I’m in the same boat as before. I’ve either unqualified or overqualified. And right now I’m sick of hearing both. If I’m applying, neither matter to me. If I’m overqualified it means I know what I’m doing and don’t require a lot of training. If I’m under-qualified, I have some things to learn but I’m willing to do the work for it.

This game is getting old. I’ve only been able to see a couple of movies too. This is a disappointment to me as well. I can’t get to enjoy the fun things I used to do. All this adulting is hurting me. Damn that responsibility.

Also, my family and I had to make the difficult decision to put down my dog Chips. He was 11 and had lived a great life. However, in a couple of weeks he changes greatly and he was in a lot of pain. We were out of options and it was for his quality of life. We laid him to rest next to my other dog Trixie. It’s been hard on all of us and I’ve spent a lot of time crying but I have accepted it was for the best. I also have been spoiling my other dog Dale like crazy. He’s a bit confused and doesn’t understand why Chips isn’t around but he’s doing well otherwise. He’s grieving in his own way, which the vet did warn us about.

Today I said goodbye to my Chips. He will be greatly missed and my heart aches. RIP Chips.

A Little Update on Me

A little update on me. I’ve changed job. I am no longer working for Meijer. I parted ways from them after they decided to cut my hours and I was having issues keeping up with my bills. I am now working at the Post Office facility near here. It’s not my favorite job (I get bored a lot) but it pays more and I’m not having to worry about my bills.

I am still looking for a job in my degree field however. That is proving to be just as difficult as it was last year. I have had some not so great interviews, one guy was completely rude to me and I will never go back there again. That place has been added to my list of places to not apply to again. And apparently it’s a sign because I see job postings for that business a lot since then.

I have been wondering what is going on with this. Is it because I don’t have the experience? Is it just that I am not the right fit for the places I’ve interviewed? Or is it something else entirely? At this point I’m stumped. However, I am still apply and still trying. I had another interview that I am hoping to hear on but the woman is going out of state to train new employees at their other location so I have to wait for her to get back.

It’s become a waiting game. I’m still hoping and I’m still working. The temp agencies I’ve used have been a complete and total bust. They’ve also been a waste of time because they have not gotten me a job nor have they been in contact with me. It seems like those are proving to be no better for me.

Well that’s the update on me. I am working second shift so unless my days off match when I watch my shows, I haven’t been able to do as much tweeting allow with them as I would like. I really miss being able to do that and talk with people about what is happening. I’ll get back onto first shift at some point, hopefully soon. In til then however, I am doing what I can and I’m still applying. Wish me luck!
