It’s Saturday night…and I am starting a blog?

Yes, it’s Saturday night. Approximately 8:57 pm. This is the time that I have chosen to start a blog.

Recently deemed jobless, I think I will have more than enough time to keep a blog update — but give it a week and we’ll see how committed I really am. I am finding this whole “recession” thing to be extremely obnoxious, yet I am not going to let it get me down. Every time I feel a little blue, I YouTube “I’m On a Boat” featuring T-Pain. I strongly recommend you watch it regardless of your job status.

I have to say, I made a bad decision today.

I walked into Mercer. If you’ve never been there, go. Unless you’re jobless, then stay away. They’re having a sale. A big sale. A “blowout prices” sale. Who says no to a sale? Logical, practical people. People that don’t have jobs.

People that aren’t me. But logical, practical people also don’t have a ridiculously almost always cute wardrobe. So, I am going to say that jeans marked down more than 50% were an investment. And buying them was not a mistake.

Going into the store might have been. Oops?

I have started my “To Do List 2009.” Promotion is number 4. Wednesday night I was getting an office, which I had already redecorated in my head (green wall, black framed mirror)…I was also getting a theoretical promotion. Thursday right before I left the office I was called into a meeting with the majority of my company and told we couldn’t make payroll.


And I could file for unemployment Friday.

Wow. Eff you economy.

There is opportunity in everything, and I know something good will come of this. I can’t help but think that karma is currently kicking my ass. Between my purse getting stolen (with iphone and camera) in January and my company closing it’s doors in February, 2009 does not seem to be off to the best start. I think only good can come of March.

While I am babbling about not have a full time job, because I still serve at the Stanz one night a week so I have a little something to fall back on, I have to say that in the past year I have seen amazing things of people I know. I credit my sanity to my mom, Nicole and Sabrina – who have seen me through some rough times.

Nicole still writes on my Facebook wall when I am sitting next to her. It still makes me laugh. I think I am developing a fear of pregnant women. Again, thank you Nikki.
