This morning I have a new job interview. I have been doing the SAME job for 12 years. I hit the ceiling 7 years ago. Basically this means that without a cost of living increase I have not received an increase in pay for 7 years. I have been looking for work since I received my masters degree in 2009 and I have not been able to find anything! It has been frustrating.
I have not interviewed for a job in 12 years. Im nervous that I do not know what I'm going to say or act. I have prepared myself but Im so out of practice. Well, here goes everything!!

Magic Bullet - My Marvelous Juicer!
Monday, November 10, 2014
I had a nutri bullet and somehow I burned out the motor. Who knew that could even happen? I must have overloaded the cup when I smelled something burning. I removed the cup from the holder when I had seen it smoking a little and now it wont turn on. Im was so sad becasue I used that thing twice a day! I was just started to get creative. Well what I did not know is that you are suppose to add water or juice to the cup BEFORE blending. Duh??
So now, I'm going to start again. I received some money for my birthday so I went to costco to look for a new juicer. The magic bullet was on sale for $49.99. Hooray!!! I purchased some frozen fruit (3 bags), one large tub of non-fat yogurt and went home. I was so smoothie happy that I made smooties all day for me and my kids! Now that I'm a professional, I woud like to make some better juices. I want to add vegetables. I was told that the magic bullet is not a juicer but I saw online that it is!!! Hooray! I cant wait to head to the market to buy, kale, cucumbers, carrots and spinich. I also found a couple of my favorite Jamba Juice recipies that I would like to try.

Fall and Daylight Savings
Tuesday. 11.4.14 8:57 am
I love the fall and rising with the sun, not before it. The air is so crisp and chilly. It reminds me that fall is finally here. Lately it has been so warm that summers are lasting through October and now I found out that it's going to be warm all this week in November. Last year I think Fall lasted 3 weeks before we hit winter.
Mother Nature can you please bring back fall to California? In hawaii you do not get to see the leaves change color. In hawaii and arizona, we do not change our clocks. I use to be so strange to see people catching the bus in the dark to go to school. You would think that dangerous but crime was not as bad as it is today.
The fall means changing wardrobes, bringing out the cuddle blankets for the couches, hot chocolate, sweatshirts and socks. Mmm... my favorite time of the year.

Why is it that people do not obey deadlines? The worst are college students. There are deadlines for college applciations,for scholarship applcations, financial aid and special programs. What makes even less sense is that administrators and faculty will "extend" deadlines to accomodate the students. No! You are enabling them to become irresponsible adults! That's what you are doing. If you hand out the syllabus at the begining of the semester they have a whole 2.5 months to prepare. Why are you giving them one more week!!?? You are enabling!I want to help students learn how to succeed in life. If you miss your job interview, they will not tell you, "that's okay just come in tomorrow at the same time." If you are suppose to show up in court and you miss it, the judge will not say, "I understand, le'ts reschedule." Students need to understand what a hard dealine is.
As a parent, I feel bad when my child is so close to finishing and just needs one more day. But, I'm not going to ask him/her to beg the teacher for one more day. I am going to get on my child for not preparing sooner, not starting sooner, not proof reading their work, checking the ink in the printer, etc.
That is me just showing that I care for my child and the child of another. I want to help people learn how to help themselves in see the world for what it really is not for what it isnt. Am I wrong? Should I encourage them to challenge the rules at every opportunity?
