It's A Warm Friday

Wow to think about summer is about to be official over, with everyone back in school. You’d think the temperature outside would go down also since summer is over. However where I live it seems the weather gets hotter each day. As you can see below it's pretty hot where I live, upper 90's all day and even at night it's still warm.

 So I'm going to take advantage of this great weather this weekend, plus it's labor day weekend. Which means a family BBQ at my grandpa's near Huntsville, so I have a pretty busy weekend planned. I will take pictures and blog about what I took to my family BBQ over the weekend and anything else that is interesting. 

Do you have any interesting plans for this weekend?

What would you do if you had sunny weather for the next week?

Computer Nightmare

Going to sleep at night with a computer on can really give someone weird dreams especially when it doesn't go to sleep. I learned this lesson last night when I was attempting to download Microsoft Office 2010, again for the fifth time. It didn't download it got stuck on the screen saying it was downloading, so I went to bed and woke up. It was still on that screen, so I turned the computer off and eventually it decide to download Microsoft Office 2010 after three hours.

Needless to say waiting for 60 days to get Microsoft Office back on my netbook has been a pain in my butt, simply because I haven't been able to do anything. I have been attempting to use Internet based resume builders for posting on the Internet to get jobs, but these builders make your resume the same like everyone else's. That is why I'm so excited to have Microsoft Office back, because now I don't have to use my mom's computer for creating a resume. 

It's really a good thing that I got Microsoft Office to download today;after I got it downloaded my mom told me that her laptop had died. Isn't that a crazy the same day that I finally get Microsoft Office to download my mom's laptop battery completely dies on her and I was about to finish my resume too. My resume is on my mom's dead computer right now so I'm kinda of glad  that I did use the online resume builder, simply because I have some of the information to create a new resume.

Even though my actually almost finished resume is on my mom's computer, I need to whip up something today. I have an awesome friend from high school, we're in choir together; she's going to help me with my resume tomorrow when we meet up. We haven't seen each other since I graduated from high school which was about five years ago. So I'm a little nervous but purely excited to see her , plus we live 5 minutes away from each other we didn't know this until last week.

What do you think of the online resume builders?

Mad World, Really It Is.

I'm writing this post at 11:15pm on Monday, while listening to Mad World by Gary Jules on Pandora. For some reason this song triggered me to write this post that it is really a mad world. I say this with the context of a grain of salt regards to the job market. I am currently searching for a job & have been for the past year since I left my last job on good terms. However I haven't been that lucky with finding a new job nor a company that has been willing to hire me yet. 

But! I got a email from anonymous company which I am not going to name offering me a job at a kinda of local area but they want to pay me less than the industry standard for the job. Which I was very confused about 1. I'm a experienced in this field, 2. I have highly great feedback from previous supervisor's for my work. This made me think wow this is really a mad world, and I am just now noticing it in regards to the job market.

The lyric's that I think relate to this post are paraphrased below:

.."I find it hard to tell you, I find it hard to take
When people run in circles its a very,very
Mad World, mad world..."

However on the other hand, I can say that I do understand it's a tough job market right especially with a weak economy and bad politics going on. I apologize for ranting about how it's a crazy world right now, I could go on but I'm not going to. I do apologize again for not blogging, I have been way to busy looking for jobs that blogging is on the far back burner, but I think I'm going to make a honest attempted at trying to blog more. It feels nice to blog, it's like singing it lightens the soul to a place of joy.

I apologize

I do apologize for being gone for over a month now, but to be honest I liked it. I like blogging it relieves stress for me and I get to share wonderful recipes. It took over a month for my finger to fully heal its much better now expect that nail is really weak and breaks easily. Since I had that super awesome hang nail infection (sarcasm insert), I have learned a few new things to prevent it from happening again.

I have learned to stop biting my nails no matter what, which has been hard breaking that bad habit. Instant I have been learning to clip my nails carefully and correctly to avoid hang nails. Also I have been wearing gloves when I clean the dishes or even clean the countertops. You be amazed that the bacteria your cleaning up actually aids in creating hang nail infections or infections of the nail bed. I didn't know that until I read up on how to prevent hang nails.

So as you can see my finger is doing better much better. As for this blog I hope that I can get back to it regularly at least three times a week. Some exciting news my lovely boyfriend dirp man he has decided to go to a plant based diet. I honestly didn't have that much influence on him; he decide on his own for his health.
