I was supposed to write this entry tomorrow…but my schedule has changed and I have news!
I am a professional tarot reader. I got my first sale. Whatever. I’ve done 65+ free email readings so I already considered myself somewhat professional. 😉
OH FUCK NO! She just emailed me and wants to know where her reading is? WTF? This probably won’t end well. If she asks for a refund, she can have it. If someone is already pissed, then they aren’t going to be happy with the reading. SHIT. Now I’m scared to check my email. I emailed her back and told her she’ll have her reading by Sunday night.
People. Sigh. I was going to start her reading tomorrow and then send it on Sunday morning. I’m swamped this weekend. I have her reading to do PLUS a free reading. And I’m working overtime, taking my mom grocery shopping, and school starts this weekend. It’s just orientation, but I want to get started on week 1 since the assignments are already posted.
I’ll check my email after I finish this post to see if there is an update. Geez. There goes any excitement. Yes, I state on my website that it takes 3 days. It used to say five days. Lol. I work for a living. I don’t do tarot full-time. Oh well. At least I made a sale…even if it doesn’t work out. ???? Just trying to look on the bright side.
Oh, I’m now a member of the American Federation of Astrologers. I just paid a somewhat low fee. To get certified, I think it’s $25 and an EIGHT HOUR TEST. Are they nuts? But am I going to go after it? Probably. They are based in Arizona (Why are 90% of American astrologers on the west coast?) They can’t promise a testing place where I live. But I’m willing to bet I can take the test in DC. They say they will work with you. I’m fine with that. Or I’m willing to go to Maryland, North Carolina, or Pennsylvania.
I was going to try to get certified in less than 2 years, but with money issues. Nah. I have the $25 to take the test, but I need more knowledge to pass the test. I would like to take at least 3 astrology classes at the college before I try to get certified. I’m going this winter. I’m 95% sure I’m not going this spring. I am considering taking my second class this summer. But I’m not sure. I will be very disappointed if I can’t take a class next winter. I would like to be able to take at least one class a year.
I just checked my email. My first (irate?) customer hasn’t emailed me back yet. I’m still scared. But it is a lot off my back if she asks for a refund. So I’m fine either way. I just don’t want her to ask for a refund AFTER I do the reading. My mentor and I talked about that, and she says I shouldn’t give the money back after I spent time on the reading. I agree, but I would also feel bad if she hated the reading. Double sigh.
Quick Nutrisystem update: I started on Monday. Today is Friday. I’ve lost 1-2 pounds. I guess that’s not bad. But the commercial promises more weight loss during the first week. Haha. Last time I started I was on vacation at a state park (I kid you not) so I walked A LOT. I think I lost at least 4-5 pounds that first week. I can’t remember. This week, I’ve only exercised once. Lame, I know. I just want to lose 15 pounds in 3 months. But I would be happy with 10. I’m not overweight, but I’m close to being overweight.
There is so much more I wanted to say, but this post is so long. So before I do “weekly”, I’ll just add a quick reminder about Bank Boost. I think it will sell out over the weekend, but it has NOT sold out yet. It’s a great course for the price ($35), plus Sarah is a great teacher. She’s awesome. Love her content.
This week I…
Music of the week (my top 8 most listened to): Lake Street Drive, Taylor Swift, Alessia Cara, Sam Smith, Camilla Cabello, Rachel Kerr, Ariana Grande, Missy Higgins
I watched half of Taylor Swift’s concert special on Netflix. I plan to finish it soon. I applaud her for singing live unlike others *coughBEYONCEcough* even though she isn’t a great singer. She was off key sometimes, but she was real. I’m not the biggest Swift fan (only because I think a couple of her albums are just plain bad), but she puts on a great show. Others could learn from her.
TV of the week: The Innocent Man, Vanderpump Rules
I wanted to blog more about The Innocence Project. After watching 4 episodes The Innocent Man, I decided to pledge to donate to The Innocence Project every month. I have it recurring. I’m not giving a lot. Just $12.50 a month. It’s time to put my money where my passion/anger is. Our “justice” system is sickening. I will blog about this more. Trust me. 😉 If you believe in DNA testing so guilty people can go to jail and innocent people can go free, please consider supporting The Innocence Project. They do such good work.
Movie of the week: None
Podcasts of the week: All in With Chris Hayes, The Astrology Podcast, So You Wanna Be a Witch, Generation Why, Where Should We Begin?
Books of the week: Now reading:
- Moonology: Working With the Magic of the Moon of Lunar Cycles by Yasmin Boland
- Vocational Astrology: A Complete Handbook of Western Astrological Career Selection and Guidance Techniques by Judith Hill
- Astrology and the Rising of Kundalini: The Transformative Power of Saturn, Chiron, and Uranus by Barbara Hand Clow
- Astrology for Yourself: How to Understand And Interpret Your Own Birth Chart by Bloch and George
None of these are school books. LOL. So I’m probably going to give up reading all but one when I have to read my textbook. I’m almost done with Moonology. I want to do vocational astrology when I become a professional astrologer. I want to do tarot career readings and help people find which jobs they are most suited for when it comes to astrology. Not just suited for, they have to like it. I’m supposed to be in law or an accountant. Uh, I tried with accounting. I suck at those kinds of details. I learned that in college. I think I would do okay in law, but I would have to have a job where a ton of talking isn’t involved. Besides, lawyers scare me. I’m intimidated by them so I couldn’t even be a paralegal.
Plans for the Weekend: I already listed what I have to do this weekend. Since I don’t have to buy much food, I’m going to try to find a way to maximize my time while my mom is grocery shopping. I will probably take my textbook with me.
School kind of starts Sunday. I’m a little confused by the schedule so I don’t know when the first assignments are due. I was going to blog about how much participation we have to do. Shit. Aren’t the assignments hard enough? Nope, participation is a lot of the grade. I will probably spend more time trying to come up with something to say than writing essays and doing the quizzes. bummer.
Have a great weekend! Thanks for reading. 🙂
