One foot in front of the other

I'm at day 20 of being unemployed. Yes, that's right. This lady who's been working since she was 14 years old has been filling out unemployment claims, buried in applications and confused on how to get approved to continue school while claiming, along with investigating other schooling programs (LPN, CNA, Surgical Tech...), all on top of job searching, like a mad woman and waiting to hear if I get food stamp assistance - it has been a crazy three weeks!!

After the initial shock wore off that I was no longer working in the car business, (and the manner in which I was dismissed), I've been able to look at my situation as an opportunity to dive into the profession I want - health care.

Although many things have drastically changed, I am a survivor. I've been through trying times (I tried to be an actor once). I am a worker; I value my independence and get pride out of earning my own paycheck. Things will turn around.

I appreciate so much the amazing support and kind words from my friends these past three weeks. You all know how much of my character is attributed to how hard working I am, and this situation has been very stressful for me. Thank you for your patience and helping me through the online applications, advice and assistance with the different avenues to pursue for help.

When We Two Parted

When we two parted
In silence and tears,
Half broken-hearted
To sever for years,
Pale grew thy cheek and cold,
Colder they kiss;
Truly that hour foretold
Sorrow to this.

The dew of the morning
Sunk chill on my brow-
It felt like the warning
Of what I feel now.
Thy vows are all broken,
And light is thy fame;
I hear thy name spoken,
And share in its shame.

They name thee before me,
A knell to mine ear;
A shudder comes o'er me-
Why wert thou so dear?
They know not I knew thee,
Who knew thee too well:-
Long, long shall I rue thee,
Too deeply to tell.

In secret we met-
In silence I grieve,
That thy heart could forget,
Thy spirit deceive.
If I should meet thee
After long years,
How should I greet thee?-
With silence and tears.

~George Gordon (Lord Byron)

Love Letters of Great Men: Vol. 1

I have something stupid and ridiculous to tell you. I am foolishly writing to you instead of having told you this, I do not know why, when returning from that walk.

Tonight I shall be annoyed at having done so. You will laugh in my face, will take me for a maker of phrases in all my relations with you hitherto. You will show me the door and you will think I am lying.

I am in love with you. I have been thus since the first day I called on you.

The Head and The Heart

Wanna hear some freaking amazing indie-rock?? The kind with killer soulful vocals, story-telling lyrics highlighted with wicked-awesome musical talent??? Well check out The Head and The Heart!! Here's some footage I shot at the Wonder Ballroom tonight. Money well spent. So talented. I'm so thrilled I was able to see them live.
