So, there you have it! Don't you feel closer to me now? Some of these questions are sooooo stupid. I deleted some of them, hence the numbering being off and I'm not going back to redo them. Im having issues with the formatting!

I had some good stuff to blog about, however, it would have been completely inappropriate and hurtful to someone I care about. So, I came to my senses and decided it wouldn't be good for the friendship! I was angry with this person and thought the best way to deal with it was to exploit some of our texting conversation on my blog. He said some mean things to me and hurt my feelings.. so I wanted revenge! But that's just being mean and I'm not a mean person.

I am, however, a hungry person!

Getting Organized and Starting Over

The story of my life it seems.. starting over and getting organized. UGH! Well, I FINALLY got my computer all hooked up and brought it to life with the internet. Im very excited to have a home computer.. my first I must admit. And Im completely addicted to it. Being addicted to my computer sucks because all I want to do is check my email, look for jobs and waste endless amounts of time on Facebook!

So, where do I start? The holidays were the same as every year. Im not a holiday person so I just do what I have to do and go where I have to go and hope it's painless! On Christmas eve, my dad and I meet at The Otter for beers after family festivities. We decided that it will be an annual event for us. This year, I invited my good friend, Mark to join us. So, I posted our Chirstmas Eve pic above.

Im officially unemployed now. Even though it's been nice having some time off work, Im soooo ready to join the workforce again! I feel like I have no purpose when I wake up in the morning. I was living such a routine life and now there is no routine.. hence the getting organized comment. The starting over part is because I have to start all over with a job. Good news is that I applied for a job, got an interview and now it appears to be a waiting game. It's a City job (City of Mpls) and would be a good job to land. They said that I should know something this week! Just waiting.......

Budget? What budget? Am I on a budget? Yup.. Paula has fallen back into the ranks of no budget and im very much regretting it. I really need to be ok with sitting on my ass in the house for a while now. Esp since im unemployed. Im starting to worry about money now and wondering when my severance check will arrive in my mailbox. My official last day of work was Jan 14. I was receiving a regular paycheck up until then. NOW.. where's my severance.. where's my vacation pay out? Im sick of waiting already.. and so is my checking account. Ive had to spend a little extra money lately for things Ive needed, not wanted.

I bought new glasses and contacts.. so im excited about that. It's been about 4 years since ive worn contacts. Im still trying to get used to not wearing glasses. Although, ive been too lazy to put the contact in lately. Glasses are so much easier! haha. Speaking of lazy.. it seems that the Lazy Disease has taken over me. I hate it and im trying to shake it. With no routine or purpose for getting out of bed these days, I spend my days being lazy! No good.

The dating update: Dating SUCKS! I dont think I will go into details here too much but I have my theories on this whole thing. Guys are looking for a roll in the hay.. not all of them, but most of them. If he's not looking for a roll in the hay, then he cant start a relationship with anyone cause he has all this drama sucking the life out of him.. but starts a relationship anyway, just to take you down with him and get a roll in the hay on the way down. Enough said.

Well, I have a lot of catching up to do, however I need to catch the writing bug again. When im not writing, i process everything in my head and then shove it aside and forget about it. In the mean time.. im looking for WORK! Ive decided on my new motto in the world of unemployment! This pic says it all!!

Havent Forgotten!

Happy 2009! No, I havent forgotten about my blog. I do apologize that ive been away for a while.. but you know.. I dont have a job anymore and I dont have regular access to a computer.. so for now I suck. BUT.. this is all about to change in the near future. It turns out that the company I worked for.. they are so generous, that once they clean off my PC at work, they are giving it to me! I can take it home and plug it in and start blogging again! I cant wait. I have lots to talk about and I have a lot of catching up to do with reading my fav blogs as well!
So, for now.. CHEERS! I will be here soon enough!
