This Girl Is Ready for a Change...


Me...I am ready for a change...or changes...

I have ideas of what I want those changes to be...for now they seem unatainable. Yet I know that if I trust God to have complete control of my life, these changes will occur at the exact right time.

So, now I just need patience.

And full reliance on God.

'Cause I know I can't do it by myself.

Domino Jewelry & Logo Design

So...on Friday, We (Mom, Lil' M, and I) headed out to a little jewelry shop that is settled on a quaint little brick-covered old main street. The purpouse of this trip - 2-fold, 1 - Mom made a santa hat for an animated triceratops...possibly the biggest santa hat one will ever see, and 2 to see if the owner of the shop was interested in selling my Domino Jewelry.

She was! She loved the peices! That being said, I left all I had taken with me in her hands...I must felt a bit odd...but I guess I'll have to get used to it. She also gave me some things to work on and will pay me in trades, so I can get some neat jewelry or what not for my self...or for gifts.

I'm also going to try and get some Christmas Domino Jewelry done, as well as Christmas Ornament - hand-painted - done get my art room clean so I can get some work done.

Ohh! Upon hearing that I'm a graphic designer and seeing my personal logo I made for myself, she has asked me to design a logo for her as well! This is great 'cause it's something I can put into my portfolio also!

I'm excited to see how this all turns out!

Let's See If They'll Sell

So tomorrow I'm heading out to a little jewelry shop to see about selling my domino jewelry.

I don't know if they will sell, but hey I'm going to try. I might even try to sell them on ebay, or maybe open an Esty store and see how they go over there.

Hopefully I can sell some of them and make a little extra money.

Verizon in C-Ville...You Rock!

So I went to a Verizon Store in C-ville, and the guys there are wonderfull!

I was having problems with my battery not holding a charge, and after going to the Verizon Store in E-Ville, I was told I needed a new battery - a new $30 battery.

So I got one on-line for $9. :)

It wasn't workin' either. :(

So the C-Ville store listened to my-thinking-it-is-the-phone-not-the-battery story, and started to see what could be done to fix it.

After numerous calls to my mom for information I needed regarding the account, they discovered they had to change the password - seeing as no-one knew what it was. Of course in order to do Dad needed to be there, and since he was on his way home from work at the time, I thought I'd have to come back another day.


So the guy that was helping me took a bit more information, like my Dad's name, our address, and the such. So he calls...well who-ever it was that he called, and had to have the other guy be my "Dad", funny thing...his first name is the same as my Dad's, but anyways. He pretends to be my Dad, (pronouned our last name wrong, not a big suprise) and got the password changed.

I in the mean time was trying to not die from laughter watching all this go on.

So anyways, the guy that was helping me, makes another call.

LO & BEHOLD - I am getting a new phone on Monday at no extra cost even though my warrenty ran out 2 weeks ago. See, since my intitial visit (to the E-Ville Store) was with-in 10 days of my warrenty ended, I should have gotten a replacement phone and had the fee waived anyways, but they didn't tell me that option - just to get a new $30 battery. So after this guy explained this to the person on the other end, they said it would be no problem. YAY!

Oh, and they are going to switch everything over for me too.

I will be going to the Verizon in C-Ville, from now on...'cause ya know...they rock!

One Good = Two Bad? Somthing's Not Adding Up...

So I got the job at Kohl's.

Yes FINALLY a job! (Okay so it's not my dream job, but it's better than nothing and I'm thankful for it.)

I've also been babysitting a cute little boy, but just a few times, on the days I'm not working.

This makes for a long week.

Anyways...the job is the good...and the bad you ask.

Well, the bad is not cool. Oh it's nothing horrible, not any life or death situation or anything like that.

It is - my cell phone's battery decided not to hold a charge, see not so bad, so I get a new battery for it. It works the first time I put it in - but now it seems not to be holding a charge, this is bad. So now I don't think its the battery, but the phone itself. Which of course would means that I will most likely have to buy a new one, of course this all happens a month after my 1 year warrenty is up...go figure.

That's not the way home from work tonight, my car decided to give me an extra light to look at on my dash - not one I like to see either, you know the one, the - service engine soon light. Now I can only hope that it is nothing major.

So 1 good = 2 bad, not a problem I like. (Though I don't like hardly any problems of any sort.)

Hopefully everything will work out. I know it will. I just really hope nothing else goes crazy, I could use alot more good.

Well, I Can Check One Thing Off My List...

And that would be getting a job. Yep. I'm employed - at least until January, silly seasonal positions. I'm back at Kohl's, in the same department I worked before - intimates and accessories - only difference is, it's a different store. This of course means I have to drive a bit further, but it's a small sacrifice for a job.
There is a chance that I could be kept on at the end of the seasonal stint, but we'll see what happens with that. In the mean time I am going to continue to look for a more stable position and preferably one that pays more - like enough for me to eventually be on my own - kind of more.
