I’m a lone ranger

I’m definitely going to have to delete the videos on this post one day. Some of the files are huge. But they are here for now. Please enjoy!

I’m back from my birthday vacay. I came back yesterday, and I was exhausted. I meant to blog yesterday. I had some clarity on what I want to do professionally. I realized that my mom and I so don’t get along. LOL. Usually, we have a suite, so we don’t have to be together so much. But due to my dog, I couldn’t afford the suite. We got a nice room with two beds instead. Anyway, I also learned that my dog can’t go to the beach anymore. :/ That sucks! However, we are going to the state park to stay in a cabin next year, so I’m not too worried. But I don’t want to leave him at the vet, and I can’t take him to the beach.

Dog with an attitude

My dog is extremely protective. I guess he is a guard/watch dog. He barked at people and dogs. Not all people. But too many people. The beach is supposed to be relaxing, I don’t want to interrupt people’s trip with my dog. I enjoyed the trip, but I can’t in good faith keep taking him to the beach. He barks too much!

I’m probably going to blog more about some things. Not sure. A good trip overall, but I can’t wait until next year’s vacation when I will have my own room in a cabin. 🙂 Another thing is where we stayed, there were people with timeshares who were clearly annoyed with my dog. My dog only barked when he heard a loud noise, so he didn’t bark that much in the hotel. Thank god. But I can tell some people were still annoyed. I couldn’t sit on the balcony after 2PM for long periods because the “neighbors” were out there. We did enjoy mornings on the balcony.

Hotel room. Sorry for the dizzy video. LOL.

I have decided to create an astrology course. I’m doing an astrology 101 course. The difference between my class and others will be the cost. It will be worth about $300, but I will charge between $29 to $97. I want to offer a sliding scale or “pay what you can.” I may do that. I guess I can give people coupon codes. I hope people that can afford it will pay $97. I know some people won’t, of course. But some honest people will pay full price.

I want astrology to be affordable. Astrology courses are so expensive. Yes, there is a lot of FREE content out there, but it requires a lot of work to put it all together. I’m going to do that for people. That is why people pay for courses. They want it organized. Everyone doesn’t have the extra time to explore the internet. There is too much free stuff. How do people choose?

I just paid for the platform today, so I’m all in. If I change my mind, I can cancel at any time. There’s an exciting, but overwhelming challenge to complete a course in 90 days!! The challenge starts on June 1. Okay, I could do some courses in 90 days…not sure about astrology. I can do a mini-course, but not a full course. I would charge $19 for a mini-course, btw or should it be free since I’ve never done a class before? Anyhow, I’m working on my outline. I have a binder just for notes on this course. I have limited my resources to four books because there are so many astrology resources. I have picked what I think are the best sources. I’m already worried about creating an intermediate course when no one has bought the first course!

Anyway, I’m so excited about creating this course. It will be a lot of work. How do I maintain my website/business, work overtime, complete the online courses I’m taking, and create a course? Makes me want to scream. However, overtime won’t last forever. And the classes will end. I have to manage my time better.

People say not to create a course until people pay for it!! ROFL. People actually do that. Those are people who work well under pressure. That’s not me. I’m a Taurus. We don’t like pressure. 😉 If no one buys, I’m having fun. If I hate it, I’m going to quit. It’s that simple. Besides, I believe no one may buy when I first launch, but 2 years from now, people may buy it. Astrology doesn’t change. So I’m all good.

So much to say, but I want to get this blog post out.

Weekend Plans: Well, today is Saturday. It’s almost 8PM. I’m going to see about transcendental meditation tomorrow. It’s a free 90-minute meeting. I will tell everything on this blog, once I complete my sessions. People are so secretive about it. Well, if the teacher says not to tell people, I will respect that. I can’t afford the full price, but they are supposed to offer a sliding scale. If a sliding scale isn’t provided, I’m not signing up because it is out of my price range.

I made the burger from Hello Fresh. OMG, I fucked up the broccoli. I used too much oil. LOL. I can’t cook. If I’m not too tired tomorrow, I will make the meatloaf, potatoes and green beans tomorrow. Btw, I still ate the broccoli.

I have to go. I have homework for my tarot course to complete. Bye! Thanks so much for reading. Have a great week. 🙂

We are broken

Wow, what a bitter person. Who does she thinks she is to demand something from anyone. I had to help myself. No one handed me anything. There are people dying of [insert disease]. There are people who don’t have homes or drinking water. What a bitch. An ungrateful bitch with a Kindle Fire. It isn’t my fault she can’t afford an iPad.

Heheh. Now that that is out of the way…Um, the above was about me and what others might think.

I saw the Hunger Games on Sunday. I thought the ending was a bit rushed but other than that, it stayed true to the book. I thought I was the only person sadistic enough to like stuff like that. Apparently not. One of my top ten books is The Long Walk by Stephen King. If you thought the Hunger Games was brutal, you have to read The Long Walk. It is one of the best (fun?) books I’ve ever read. The Hunger Games has nothing on that. It’s awesome.

Last week, I booked my beach vacation. This was before all the job stuff….And uh, I unfortunately booked a nonrefundable rate for the hotel. I rarely do that because anything could happen. I just wanted to save a little money. I’m sort of glad that I can’t cancel because I could use a short vacation. It is a birthday vacay! It is only for two nights since I could only get three days off from work during the middle of the week but that is better than nothing. It is less than a month away.

The room at the hotel is a 1000 sq ft suite.  That is bigger than my house! 🙂 I’m not kidding. I stayed there once for a night or two. It’s marvelous.  I got it at a cheaper rate since I’m going during the semi off season. My only complaint is the small balcony. I have pretty much stayed in all the affordable beachfront hotels and this has the smallest balcony by far.  Oh, and they only have ONE elevator. That kinda sucks too. I use the stairs whenever possible but when I first bring my luggage in, I have to use the elevator.

I can’t wait to go. I’m going to start packing what this weekend. So excited. I love the beach.

I’m really rambling. I just wanted to recommend The Long Walk and snark on myself.

P.S

I’m crying through all the previous episodes of Grey’s Anatomy and loving it.
