i am working on getting certified to teach - 5th thru 9th grade! i really would like to teach math, which i never would have expected. but i just enjoy it! the certification is done in May so if you need me to work for you - anything! - call me!
although it is fall weather here, it is still H-O-T. I just came in from the pool!
one of my best friends is having a baby boy! while they dont know the first name yet, her husband has convinced most everyone to give him the middle name TANK. How funny! I think it is kind of cute.
got to go, air conditioner repair man is here. yes, it is BROKEN!

after a 4 month hiatus here i am back, not sure what the ol blog will be covering in the future. but here is a recap:
- the economy ate my job
- which leads to job hunt
- interrupted by needing a new place to live
- which also leads to, do i stay or do i go?
I have lived in the 904 for just over a year and i really like it here. just recently found a church i am excited about, and i enjoy being independent. i like lists, the keep me sane so here is a pro/con list on leaving/staying
- not south florida
- close to savannah, atlanta
- rccjax.com [church]
- feeling of independence
- la nop, square 1, cruisers, zoes
- my bible study girls [at least the ones left!]
- mr.law student
- no definite job
- no definite housing situation
- 2 bffs here moved away
- not south florida
i think my problem is that i have no ties to anywhere, anything or anyone. is this the quarter life crisis all of us go thru when we realize that we can consciously make our own lives & not just take the next step? you know, after high school go to college, after college get a job. such the frustration.
the recent job lay off scene has been stressful, but also quite encouraging. after sending out the email below i have gotten such positive encouragement from friends & even strangers that have seen my letter as a result of someone passing it on to their someones.
said email reads,
"Dear Friends & Family,
For the past 12 months I have been working for Stein Mart as an assistant buyer. During my time there I learned many valuable lessons in negotiating, hard work and organization. I was faced with the daily stress that arises in any sales driven business and struggle of being in retail during these tough economic times. I worked with many different personalities and have learned how to adapt in new and challenging times.
Unfortunately the economy has not been strong enough for Stein Mart to keep its work force as deep and well-staffed as they would like. In January of this year I survived their first expense cut and when our stocks grew these past 5 months, I was encouraged about my future in the company. However, this past week they were forced to cut their work force once again and my position was eliminated.
I have always been a strong believer that it is never just what you have learned from books and going to class that makes a successful individual; but a combination of intellect, sense and experience that makes someone an ideal candidate for any position, regardless of industry. Through my 23 years of life I have been involved with many walks of life, experienced many cultures and been put in many challenging times. I have had the great priviledge of growing many amazing relationships [with people like yourselves] by being a loyal, honest and caring friend.
Like many of my peers I am still looking for that one job that I can really throw myself into. I have always had a passion for working with people and helping them solve their issues. From working at Williams-Sonoma for 6 Christmas seasons and helping dad's pick the $100 waffle maker for their wives over the $25 cookbook to teaching 6th grade girls at Kanakuk how to serve a volleyball over the net; my passion has been applicable to many areas of life. I know this can cross over into the business world into many different industries.
I would so greatly appreciate any help that you would have in any potential job leads. I know the Lord works in His own mighty way - sometimes ironic, as my severence package is also the exact length of the remainder of my apartment lease! I have attached my resume for you to see & to forward to anyone who may be interested.
Thank you all for your support & prayers,"
so we'll see where i go, if you need someone like me in your career path - holla.

Only problem with these lookers is that they do not keep my foot stabile. I think they are a size wider than normal [probably should have noticed that on the clearance rack]
So the quest begins for new shuz [let's get some shuz].
I have heard these Mizuno ones are good, any takers? It is hard to me to separate fashion vs. function, I have always loved getting new athletic shoes.. weird I know. But ask my mother.
and I really like the looks of these, but I do not know if maybe I have a New Balance curse..
lunch break is over :(

calling all crafty girls.. DIY project.
*when using feathers to craft, first glue feathers onto a piece of thin felt & then to whatever you are adding to. cheap craft clips are great ways to add feathers to anything.love these!
so thank you feathered friends for being an inspiration
