Where are my words? I feel like writing, I do I do but it's like I have no words to say right now. Weird. I've been in a funk this week. I hate when the funk hits, when it's like I don't want to do anything. Not even sad funk just the unmotivated funk. The leave me be to sleep all day funk. Of course, that's not an option. I've been a little sick too, I wonder if my immune system is out of wack... probably.
Let's see, what's happened since I was here last? I survived our anniversary yet again. Had some close friends over because there is nothing better in the world than great family and friends, and just chilled. I didn't end up making it to the beach because I was doing a little bit of media stuff that day after school concerning Osama Bin Laden's death and my reaction. I'm bummed about not getting to the beach but it was kind of neat that anyone cared what I had to say and I always love the opportunity to tell people about my husband. I am so proud of our troops, of America and of course, and most importantly to me, of my wonderful husband. I burst with pride whenever I think of him. Whenever I think of being a Marine Wife OR a Marine Widow.
If you cared to see the 2 news pieces I did, you can go here or here and I did a radio talk show here. Of course they are just my opinions and if you differ that's fine, just do so respectfully (if your comment is disrespectful or hurtful it will just be overlooked and discarded, you'll be wasting your time).
So yeah, that was interesting. It was also a realization that I really should activate my plan to get in healthier shape (HA!)
Besides that, not much else has been going on. Just school which I'm struggling to keep up with the hours. It's difficult having mandatory hours to make and the feeling that there is no time to miss. Especially when you get sick, have a kid that gets sick, or have an undying need to travel on random days. At least at a real job you can take vacation time when you need it and you only hurt yourself by not making dollars... sigh. I'm doing my best though, and I know I will graduate I have just got to buckle up and make up some hours. I'm stoked because right now we're learning color. I've learned how to cut and now I'm learning color so I'm feeling more confident by the moment that I'll be able to start doing people's hair soon! We'll be opening up the clinic floor (meaning if you're in the Jacksonville area you should come in and get your hair did!) soon, probably in June, July at the latest, and I am getting so excited about working on real live people. I'm also super excited to learn skin care, I think that's going to interest me more than I originally anticipated.
Oh some other cool news, the magazine I've been writing for, DStripped, has gone print! A few of my articles (including a couple on myself, most recently an article about love after loss) will be in the magazine. I'm really, really excited to be published in print. This is a super big deal for me and fulfilling one of my life-long dreams to be a published writer. If you really love me (or you really love DStripped... or both!) head over to the website and order your copy today (hint hint... haha just kidding).
Well I've got the house to myself tonight, the baby's already in bed so I think it's time I order some movies on demand, make myself a bowl of ice cream, and completely veg out. I'm certain this will help the non-motivation and the waist-line... NOT... oh and hey, looks like I found some words ;)
