UGHHHHHHH. It's been almost three weeks since I've worked and I have been calling and leaving messages and I STILL haven't heard from them. My impulse is to just show up there but in all honestly, I don't care anymore.

OK, that's a HUGE lie... I care, immensely. I mean come on, I've been working there since I was 13. And I know, I KNOW, that this is real life and stuff like this happens to hardworking employees all the time... it just SUCKS. Now that it's already almost August, it's unlikely that I'll be able to get a new job to only end up being there for less than a month.


I've been considering my moneymaking options and am slowly making my way over to "borderline desperate". This includes online freelance writing, selling everything I can on Ebay and maybe something involving my baking "talents" (?).

I'm not exactly ecstatic about having to resort to such things, in case this isn't evident, but I have to. My god, last year... I had A LOT of money going back to Rider; I worked ALL SUMMER. I'm discouraged to say the least.

Have to hope for the best though, right? Just have to keep telling myself that optimism does come through.

Don'ttttt stop, believinggggggg!

Hello hello! It's been a while (as per usual) but I've realized that probably not too many people are hanging on every word I say and anxiously await when I blog. Nope, nope. That's OK though, maybe someday.........


Moving on, I have a name for you: The Rhythm Shop. YouTube them, Google them, do whatever you want with them (that's what she said??) just take a look at the awesome-ness they possess! Yesterday night, my sister and her fiance went to NYC to check out a band that they were going to have at their wedding. My mom and I were invited to tag along and put in our own thoughts of what we thought of them. We arrive at this rehearsal studio (a half hour early, naturally) and were greeted by the guy in charge of the entire band and free glasses of wine; my sister's fiance used to work for him so he basically knew everybody who worked there. Talk about having connections!

This is turning into a long story. Long story short? The band was FABULOUS and coming from me that is the highest compliment I can possibly give to something. Comprised of a 10 piece band and 5 singers, The Rhythm Shop did covers of virtually every genre of music you could think of. This included Prince, The Black Eyed Peas, Swing Music, Latin, Bon Jovi (JERSEY REPRESENT!), Journey and so much more. They were a charismatic bunch and kept going into the audience which, in my opinion, made the whole thing a lot more enjoyable. We were in the front row so at one point the one guy started singing directly to me (which my sister found HILARIOUS) and at another point a guy with bangos started running around and getting people to play them as well. Although we only got to see about an hour of songs but after sitting there for 20 minutes all I wanted to do was get up and start dancing to the music! That just shows yoy how much fun it turned out to be. My sister said they were definitely going to have that band at the wedding and, well, knowing my family.... it's going to be a grand ole' time, that's for sure!

I'm a fan of them, in case no one managed to get the impression! This isn't much of a post but I want to keep this blog entirely positive because, unfortunately, I've been rather anti-positive lately. So for now, good music is all ya need! =)

Do NOT steal my sunshine KTHNX!

Whoa, how did it become almost midnight already? I don't remember the time fleeing from me so quickly, you know, with all those thingssss I've been doing all day. Ahem, LIES.

Lalalalala......... OK, yep, I'm finally back in my homeland (AKA Jerseyyy) and now I'm the woman of complete nothing-ness. It's been very uneventful few days since I've been back to say the least. I guess I'll have to try to keep myself as occupied as possible. There is ALWAYS something in my house that needs to be done.... it's the palace of messy and I am it's princess!

Backtrack for a momento if you will for VACATION! We were blessed with extremely beautiful weather the entire 10 days while in the south and the temperature always stayed above 90! Debbie's wedding turned out very well and everything came together when it was time. The dress looked fabulous on her (as did everyone else in the wedding party) and despite the small amount of people (45 if that many) the reception was a lot of fun and laughs! Not a lot of dancing unfortunately (boo!) but it all flowed together very well. The food was about as southern as you could get which makes sense because it was Georgia and everything! Delicious to say the least, although my favorite thing there were these amazing rolls that were like Challah but they were somehow BETTER. I don't know how they did it, all I know is that I ate two of them and was kicking myself afterward for not throwing some of them inside my purse for later. Other than my lack of roll-age, it was a fabulous time and the newlyweds seem very happy together! Yaaaay and that's all that matters.

The bride and the groom =)

Oh, you want me to describe how Myrtle Beach was?

How's THAT for a description? I'm in LOVE with Myrtle Beach, so much. Considering I've been going there since I was about 6 or 7, the beach has become a part of my personality I think. I really didn't want to leave and must have stood on our balcony for at least 10 minutes right before we left so I could say "GOODBYE" to the ocean. Lame perhaps, but the comforting effect that beach has on people can be pinpointed as the culperate for such behavior on my part. Sighhhh, I miss it already.
Honestly, how could you NOT love this?

That was what I got to look at all week..... and now I'm back to G-field, home of champions. The Onion basically has no use for me at the moment, I'm carless (again) and I'm a general boring lady. Tomorrow I blame on cleaning out the back porch which is just piles upon piles of STUFF that needs to be sorted through. That'll keep my day nice and busy for certain... maybe I'll find some new treasures out there if I'm lucky. LOL. I guess I should head to sleep... two days ago I went to sleep at 2:30 and didn't wake up until 3 in the afternoon. I need my early mornings, they make the day nice and long! Nighty night <3

ZOMG I forgot to mention something significantly important that has happened.........

Aquarius SHOULD be a water sign... it would make so much more sense!

HAPPY JULY! Oh wait, it's JULY. How many weeks has it been I posted? Yeah, I don't even want to consider it.

I figure that way too much has happened to worry about doing math! Currently I'm residing in MYRTLE BEACH, SOUTH CAROLINA!! It's beach, beach and more beach and I'm absolutely LOVING it here. The temperature has been above 90 degrees the entire week and there haven't been clouds, or rain, or anything! Granteddddd, I did get pretty severe sunburn on the legs but honey, you're going to need more than some sunburn to keep me away from the ocean! I think I'm something of beach bunny at heart and simply cannot resist the temptation to just JUMP in the water. I'm having a grand ole' time here let me tell you!

I shall extrapolate more upon this subject (and probably the entirety of the trip) later.... sorry blogworld, I'm heading off to the beach! <3
