Eight weeks until my birthday beach vacation! 🙂
Moving on to TMI. I didn’t get my period!! Yes. I’ve been trying for 3 years to get rid of it. I hope it’s gone for good. Please, please, please? I tried Depo-Provera for almost a year. Didn’t work. Then after more than a year on Bilsovi Fe 1.5/30, I skipped a period. Woohoo!!!111 I needed something great to happen and it did.
Marianne Williamson came out for reparations for blacks FIRST (many years ago, btw) and now all of a sudden Bernie Sanders changes his mind. LOL. I said the words, “I like politics” to someone and I realize that I don’t like politicians. Who does? But I like politics in a sports kind of way. I like that someone wins and someone loses. I don’t know. I know that sounds horrible. I’m a sports fan so that is the only thing I can think of to compare it to.
Most politicians are professional liars. They get paid to lie. If you’ve been reading here for a while, you know I hate lying more than almost anything. I just think it is weird to love politics but hate liars. Maybe it’s just me.
I applied for a new job at my current company. I don’t really qualify. I have the degree needed (in psychology), but only nine months of experience. It probably would pay about $50K to me. Not sure. Since I’m already working for them, they would NOT offer me a competitive salary. Bummer, but I don’t think I’m going to get it. However, that still sucks. Someone else would get paid probably about $65K. Whatever. I’m 98% sure I have no shot. Why did I apply? Because I needed to redo my resume desperately. So I used that job as motivation.
Is the death penalty gone for good in California? I hope so. I should probably read about it. What a concept! I wish it was abolished in all the states.
So much to talk about. I’m all over the place. I’m going to stick with my “business”. I’m starting from square one and see how it goes. I just have so much to do. I need to get organized. Right now, I should be working on my final exam paper for astrology. Oh, how cool is this? My final exam is on Robert Downey Jr.! Do you know how much I love him?! When I used to have crushes on movie stars, he was in my top 10 (on the male list).
I did start my paper. However, a lot of it is crossed out because it’s garbage. I kind of need an A on this paper, because I didn’t participate in the online discussion for the last few weeks. Discussion is 40% of our grade. And that is why I’m not continuing. I can’t fake that shit. So goodbye! I did learn a ton though. I hope I pass. If we don’t pass, we can take it again for FREE, but why would I want to with the same discussion rules AND the same teacher? That doesn’t make sense.
Back to my business. I’m going to stick with it for at least 6 more months. I have no structure. I’ve just been seeing what sticks and what doesn’t. I’m going to get serious and follow a business program and create a business plan. It won’t be a traditional business plan, but there will be a plan.
I have 250 business cards. They were so cheap, I had to buy them. BUT now my services have completely change. ROFL. I knew as soon as I ordered the cards, my offers would change. I only have 4 offers now. Soon I will probably only have 3. Who knows? I have to do a plan.
What else? I miss living near the park. I now live in a neighborhood. I walked my dog during my lunch break on Monday and Thursday. I will try to keep that schedule until the kids get out of school in June. It sucks for my dog, but I’m not going out into world with people all around. Kids. Teens. Nah.
I went outside today just to take my dog outside around 4 PM and I was laughed at by teens (?). It reminds me so much of high school. Not that adults have never laughed at me. But kids laugh more. So people suck. I don’t want to walk around here, but I know my dog wants to go for a walk so….I might make myself go twice a week even when the kids are out of school. I doubt it. I have to figure out when I want to drive to the park.
I now weigh 140 pounds. Thanks to Nutrisystem. 😉 I know I should quit due to the price, but I LOVE the structure. I was so close to ordering out twice this week. Thank god it passed. Can I stay 140 without Nutrisystem? I know it’s possible. But it’s so hard when I’m really stressed. I like carry out/delivery when I’m stressed or happy. Sigh.

Weekend Plans: Hopefully, I will be able to work on my paper. I’m waiting on a book from Amazon. Tracking says it was delivered today. Guess what? It’s not here. I’m not reporting it to Amazon until tomorrow. If someone else got the package, I’m sure they will be amused to get a book called “Traditional Astrology”. How fun! 😉 Either way, I have to work on the paper.
I might drop my taxes off. I’m definitely going to the grocery store. Next week, I’m going to book a study room at the library.
Random, but I finally opened my Etsy shop. I started it about 8 years ago. LOL. I just never listed anything there. I listed 7 things. None of them are related to tarot. I should probably list my tarot stuff there. Is that a horrible idea? I don’t think anyone will buy because my prices won’t be cheap and I don’t have reviews. I might post one for fun tonight and then I’m going to bed.
I’m going to list my shit on Etsy tonight. Maybe I’ll get a sale. Maybe not. I might end up taking it down when I come to my senses tomorrow morning. Oh yeah, I told Facebook and Twitter about my Patreon. No sign ups. I 100% expected that. I’m not going to post on Instagram about it until I’m sure I’m staying around. That will probably be in 2-3 months.
Have a great weekend! Thanks so much for reading!
