Thursday report

I met most of my goals for today! I did apply for two jobs, although one I thought I was going to apply for changed the qualifications and I didn’t meet them. So I applied for another that I might not completely qualify for, but I met most of them, and it is a good paying job. I spent a good part of the day applying for that job.

I also changed my sheets and did two loads of laundry. Been relaxing since, haven’t cleaned the bathroom sink yet. But there is still time.

When I checked my mail I found out I am eligible for Unemployment benefits! I’ll be getting more than I expected, but it still won’t be as much as some people get. It’s based on my income from 2010. Still, I am very grateful to be getting it, it means I can pay rent AND bills while looking for work. So far I only really had money for rent for several months.

I only played my main FB game this morning, Lucky Train. Then later today I decided to play Gardens of Time till I ran out of energy (hidden object game). I played Lucky Train again. Not going to check in on other games today.

Been playing Rune Factory 3 on the DS. I should quit now and do something more constructive, like read a library book. Will in a few minutes.

I was surprised to hear Katie Couric was quitting CBS Evening News. I happened to watch her last broadcast. I didn’t always like what she had to say (she sounded anti-democrat & anti Obama at times) but I will miss watching a national news with a female anchor. She is going to be replaced by some man.

I really liked something she said on the news tonight, that a man who was supposed to be paralized for life, was able to stand on his own due to new medical technology. I wish Christopher Reeve was still alive to see this and experience it for himself.

I did start some of The Birth Of Venus By Sarah Durant today. Probably will read some more of that, and Rose for a Crown.


Silence is sometimes the best music of all

This Kitty pic was my desktop for about a week from Webshots, I finally decided to change it today to something else.

Last night I tried to go to bed reading Roadside Crosses, but felt more like writing myself, so I worked on a new short story (not sure of it’s name yet) and also worked on one of my fics, THTV.

I’m hoping to work on them again today, at least THTV. I also started up the dishes this morning – I didn’t finish the big bowls and pots AS USUAL and I’m wanting it all done. I just can’t seem to do every thing at once though, I have to keep switching what I am  doing.

This morning it was nice to get up and just read instead of immediately going to FB games. I read Roadside crosses, A Rose For The Crown by Anne Easter Smith,  Sweet Poison, and then also some of Stephen King’s It.

Stephen King rambles on so damn much. I keep losing what the hell the chapter is about. I’m not sure I will be able to finish the book, but I’m trying to finish at least one of his books. It has been years since I have been able to finish one of his books. Last year I tried Duma Key, it was interesting most of the way through, and then it got so weird at the end I was just skimming all the pages real fast so I could say I read it on my list. The story was meaning nothing to me at the end. Right now It only makes sense to me part of the time…but I’m trying.

I didn’t get around to watching an episode of Legend of the Seeker yesterday, maybe today.

Oh and my title – I was listening to my playlist for awhile, but I tire of music really easily – so I turned it off. This one song keeps running through my head though, “I remember” so maybe I’ll turn it back on while I write.

The only time I don’t tire of music is in my car – well I do, but I keep listening in the car, helps keep me awake and passes the time faster.

It looks like a cold drizzly day, not sure I will go for a walk, but if I do, it will be to Bimart to get a new bathmat, we need one.

This morning I thought about starting a new file on Mario Kart Wii, and listing all the things I unlock here on WordPress as I go. I decided I have too many other things to do, but maybe I will start that later. It’s not like other lists aren’t available on the internet, but the one really good list I found, lists the wrong NAMES for the cars, I was like WTH here I thought there was a car I needed to unlock but I already had it because apparently in other countries they call it the Dragonetti (It’s Honeycoupe for us).

Also I wish Etrian Odyssey games let you have two files so I could start a new one, so I could list when I found important things. Basically, what is important is this – Amrita is available in Etrian Odyssey III at the store once you are on the second stratum and sell something you get from a monster either on the 5th or 6th floor, but I can’t remember which monster and which thing. It might have been blue core, I am not sure. I’m going to try and post an entry just about Etrian Odyssey III soon.

Goals for today:

  1. Do laundry
  2. Clean the bathtub
  3. Do some writing
  4. Read some more
  5. Watch one Netflix show (Legend of the Seeker? Hoarders?)

I decided I wanted to have a goal for the week too -this week I want to get rid of at least ONE thing I don’t need anymore. Hopefully, more than one thing, but at least one.
