Oh. My. God. It's still here! Everything is still here! Why, oh why did I ever leave this fantastic tiny corner of the Internet?!

Quick! Updates!:

So, Elessar and I got married. That's a thing as of 10/25/2016. Bit of a shocker, I know.

I'm STILL at the Museum, but I honestly love it. I'm the lead supervisor who coordinates all field trips and educational visits. It's not too shabby.

I'm STILL working at finishing school. But that's ACTUALLY happening this next school year.

My brother is currently estranged from my family (which is a whole other blog post), and my dad after YEARS of unemployment finally found a great job :D

Zanzibar is also still here! Hi, lovely! I've moved 3 times since I last posted and the postcard you sent me from Antartica is still on my fridge.

Um, other than that life is good!

See everyone around!

I very seriously need to write in here more.

Nothing amazing has happened in my life however.

Still working 3 jobs. The Museum, Subbing, and a comic book store.
While each of those jobs sound awesome in their own right...When I wake up in the morning I hate knowing where i'm headed.

The museum isn't terrible. I love the people, I know my job, i'm comfortable. What's not so great is that I've been there so rarely that I don't really know what's going on anymore. That means, I don't know new-hires, I don't know what gallery is coming or going I just feel out of the loop. So, it's really not bad at all....

Subbing is just so WEIRD. I don't think I was meant to be a teacher. However, I have been able to sub for the infant room. The district has a Learning Center where teachers or students with children can get basically free daycare. The infant room is ages newborn-1yr. There's 7 babies in there. I have learned how to hold them, take tempratures, change diapers, feed them and clothe them. They are much easier to handle for me. I haven't had a chance to work with the older babies though... oh well.

The comic book store.....*sigh*. It sounds awesome. It was AWESOME when I got hired on. It's more or less what I actually want to do. But the people inside bicker and fight and make scenes ALL.DAY. It's awful! One guy actually told me while we were closing together that my boss is looking for a reason to fire me and that my best bet is to start finding another job. This was after he got mad at me for not closing the store on time (while he and his D&D buddies didn't leave till 15 minutes after close...). It's become such a negative enviornment and such a drag to work there that I hate it. HATE IT. But the store itself is awesome and one or two other people are great enough that it almost seems worth staying.

I am however finally starting to look around for a full time gig. God willing, someone somewhere will want me. Pray for me!

Enough about jobs!

Tonight I am hosting Book Club at my new apartment! Aldo and I stayed up (mostly Aldo) till late decorating the apt to be halloween-y. The book we're covering is The Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury. It was an AWESOME read and if you're intrest is even slightly piqued then you absolutely grab a copy of it. It's a very small book and the language is beautiful. There's also a cartoon of it out there. I watched it on YouTube so you can too! It's going to be a pot-luck so lots of different food. I'm making a Mummy Pizza Roll, and Sugar Cookie Candy Skulls. I'm hoping other people will bring stuff more along the food line and less along the drinks line...but we'll see how that goes. At least my couch is a pull out so people can crash if they need to.

Alrighty, we'll...i'm off to start cooking and stuff...

this is how we do it!

So, with only two weeks to go until the company closes - I quit Borders.
They weren't really working with my schedule and all in all it just wasn't going the way I planned.

On the other hand, I now have ONE semi permanent Part Time job at my local comic book store. It's close enough to my new apartment that I can walk there in about 10/15 min. There's so much to learn! But, i'm finally in a place that I want to be. It's independent, it's a book store, they work ALOT with children and schools. This is the job that finally gets me the experience I need in the field I want to be in. Once I (finally!) finish up my schooling I'll have both! Not only that, but I've been told multiple times by multiple people that as long as I don't (basically) suck and do my job to the best of my ability that I will be up for a full time position. Plus, the looks on people's faces when you say that you work in a comic book store (and you're a woman...) is priceless. Whenever I have time off from the store, I pick up shifts either at the Museum or I substitute. It pays the bills.

I love my new apartment. My cat loves my new apartment. My dad came up to visit a few weeks ago and my mom sent up a couple of curtains, and a table! :) Since the table we've had a few game nights. It's been awesome. I'm thinking of possibly buying a new rug for the middle of the floor (beige, brown, blue?) and a fan. For some reason, my apartment doesn't have a celing fan in the living room area. I don't mind having lamps, but I like circulating air. So...a fan is what's called for.

Other than work, not much is going on. Elessar's birthday is at the end of this month. He's finally getting the tattoo that he's wanted for years, so today after I get out from work we're going tattoo shop shopping. He's also goiong to have a themed birthday "wild at 25". lol, He's getting the tattoo (wild!) then we're going to go watch the Lion King Re-release in 3d (lions, tigers and bears, oh my!), followed by dinner at the Rainforest Cafe ('cause you know...how much more wild can ya get?). I think it'll be fun. The next weekend, just a few friends are gathering to go camping in Oklahoma. Nice Birthday, right?

That's pretty much all that's going on right now.
Life is well. I'm working on moving up.
