I have a serious question, and I ask any of you who might stumble across this to offer your opinion. Friend or stranger. Expert or not. This is a situation that has been plaguing me, and I'm hesitant to bring it up until I've fully considered the situation. I have... Continue reading

I have a job. An honest to goodness adult job. I'll have an office, work on a computer, and work in a customer service capacity. It's a position I never would have looked at, except that I heard about this opening through a friend. The friend loves her job, and... Continue reading

A long time ago, a boy broke my heart. That's how the story goes, we fall for the wrong boy, and we get hurt. He's young, stupid, and careless with your heart. In this morning's dream he was there, drawing me back into his world. He had grown. Not grown... Continue reading

I'm officially under the emotional weather. I've been sitting in the apartment for days. Unable to write. Unwilling to leave the house. Just staring at nothingness. I don't know what to do about this. I need to figure out what I want out of life, but first I need the... Continue reading

More and more, I'm feeling out of place among people who used to know me so well. I'm drifting apart from friends. Slowly, as though it's been happening for years and I'm only now processing it. I'm drifting from my family. I sit among them as they discuss iPads and... Continue reading

A week without me posting. A week without any true changes. I didn't get that position. I find myself continuing to ponder what I want out of my life. Wondering how I can develop the tools needed for success. The other day I read a series of articles about the... Continue reading

Last night I stumbled across a graduate program that makes so much sense. It's a branch of a local and respected private college designed for working professionals. Classes are held on satellite campuses throughout California, including one in Orange County. The degree is what I'd originally been considering, one that... Continue reading

As I hit thirty I find myself looking at some of my longtime friends and wondering if we're friends because we know each other so well, or if we're simply friends out of habit. How do you know? And if it is simply habit, what's the next step? Continue reading

I spent the bulk of yesterday sleeping. I woke up with a head cold, and since I had the day off, decided to sleep it off. It more or less worked. My throat is still scratchy, but I'm doing a lot better than I was yesterday. Since I'm working every... Continue reading

Today I interview for a new job. The third interview since graduation. I must go in with a clear head. I want to show them who I am, and what I can do. Compatibility is at least 50% of the process, right? If two people are fairly equal in qualifications,... Continue reading

Yesterday evening the boy and I went out for the 4th. We went to a friend's house in Costa Mesa, one of the few Orange County cities were fireworks are legal. This was my condition. We live in a city where fireworks are legal, and I didn't want to miss... Continue reading

I haven't been sleeping enough. There isn't some dark reason for this, more of the general lack of sleep that occurs when a women is of a certain carefree age and lifestyle. Somehow every night staying up to read a few more chapters, or watch a few more episodes is... Continue reading

I have a job interview next week. I'm averaging maybe one a month? Considering the current state of our economy, and the fact that I'm safely employed at the restaurant, I think this is fairly decent. Particularly since in general I'm being fairly picky about where I apply. This interview... Continue reading

What do you do when you can't stand your friend's partner? I'm at an age where friends have serious relationships. Engagements pop up, and the pile of wedding invitations grows. So when a friend's partner rubs me the wrong way, it has the potential to be a big problem. I... Continue reading

I have the same problem every time I try to find a second job. That is, trying to find one that doesn't alter my current work hours too drastically. If I took a part time position making, say, $10 an hour, working 20 hours a week, that's about $200 extra... Continue reading

If I'm going to do this, if I'm truly going to move cross country, it'll take some time. I'll need to get a second job and save money. Go through my storage unit and sell as much as possible. Give away even more. Maybe then, in six months, I can... Continue reading

I used to make a promise with the universe. If I won the lottery, I'd use it for my education. That would be my first priority. Not buying things for my family, or seeing the world. I'd pay for grad school, and pay off my student loans. I didn't win... Continue reading

My relationship with my father has always been a bit strained. My parent's split up when I was very young, and I was primarily raised by my mother's side of the family. For many years my dad tried, but as we both got older, it became more difficult. He remarried... Continue reading

Growing up, all I wanted was to be an actress. I wanted to be in movies. As I got older, my desire altered slightly. I wanted to be on stage. Last year as I watched the Tony awards I cried my eyes out. I realized that I'd given up on... Continue reading

One of my favorite daily reads is The Happiness Project. I read the book on the flight back from one grad school interview, and throughout the trip for another. In truth it was the perfect time in my life for me to read such a book, because it got my... Continue reading

What's the biggest way to freak Catgirl out? Google. Last night, with the help of google, I looked into what it takes to get a job in publishing. The good news is that my lack of an english degree isn't going to ruin me. The bad news is that it... Continue reading

You know that feeling, when a pure rush of energy and emotion overwhelms you? And the morning after you wake up in a daze. Not a hangover, there's no headache to accompany the daze, but your head is certainly foggy. That's how I feel this morning after last's night career... Continue reading

All of a sudden my mind is racing. Yes. This is what I want to do with my life. Everything else was a distraction. Was what I should be doing. Was what made sense. But I have to take a few deep breaths. Here I go again, making plans on... Continue reading

I just applied for a job with a dream company. I'm not horribly qualified, and would have to relocate, but isn't that what this is all about? Isn't that why I went back to school? How could I move? How could I afford to move? I can't even afford to... Continue reading

My life has been taken over. Earlier this week the boy and I rescued a kitten. A tiny six week old little girl kitten, who we took in for the night, convinced that she lived in a neighborhood house. When we discoverd that she didn't live where we thought she... Continue reading
