Well, it's been a while. There has been good news, such as I worked a couple temp jobs- and there has been bad, such as I lost those jobs a lot sooner than I thought I would. So, it was hard to deal with that. I do have a new... Continue reading

Nine days until Pascha. Is it me, or do the days seem longer the closer you get? :) I just ordered a white chocolate bunny at a local candy shop. That's going to taste really good. On Monday, I start my new job. I'm grateful to God; also, a little... Continue reading

Here we are at the end of March. The year is going so quickly! Lucky thing is, I did get a job. It's a temp job, for six months. I'm glad to have something. Of course, I'm nervous. Grateful as well. My dog is a little better now. She's eating... Continue reading

Well, it's another week, and I do have an interview tomorrow. Then, there are always things that can distract me- as if there were a time when there would never be anything negative to think about, but still, I always wish that the sense of fear and futility would go... Continue reading

Set sail on the seas of Lent! :) Okay, it's day two and I had a fish sandwich today. I can look forward to another 11,000 of them before we're through. I was feeling pretty rough the other day, and this morning wasn't a hoot, either. My medicine took a... Continue reading

Post removed. It's Clean Monday, and I wanted to post something in a better spirit than last time. No today. Maybe I'll have noodles for dinner. Good luck, everyone! :) Continue reading

Well, some news on the Chrismation front: I am looking for a sponsor! I have to find someone who is Orthodox, and I am going to ask at the parish office if they know some nice person in the administration, or maybe some nice older couple, who would help someone... Continue reading

Well, it's been some week. I had another one of those collapse-of-the-world arguments on, and I've come to another fork in the road. I wrote a letter to my priest a few days ago, asking him if I could get chrismated after having been in the parish two years.... Continue reading

It's Wednesday. We are having the car worked on today, as well as the new sink, which started to leak hours after it was installed. So it's a fun morning. :) I have written a letter to Fr. Petrides, asking if I can be chrismated. I haven't sent it yet.... Continue reading

Today is Thursday. I wasn't able to go to church Wednesday morning, on account of the fact I had a job interview. I figured I had to keep something I had set up before. I don't know if I've got the job, but I think I left a good impression.... Continue reading

This morning, after the liturgy, we got a shock. Our parish priest announced his upcoming retirement, so that he can continue his work as vicar of 18 places in the diocese. That's a lot to do, and I respect his decision, but I was very upset and started to cry... Continue reading

Hello, everyone. It's a new year, and I hope it will bring a lot of good things. :) I am still looking for a job. I think there will be some better results as of this week, because everyone's done with the holidays. (We don't get a day off for... Continue reading

Christmas is on its way! Whether you are on the New or Old Calendar, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you. :) I still have a toothache, a couple weeks after I got some new fillings put in. Guess I'll just have to take aspirin. I went to church... Continue reading

We are about to celebrate one of our biggest national holidays in the U.S. I can't wait- the turkey is already in the fridge. This makes me think how lucky I am in my life, even if I am struggling right now, and I pray the Lord will protect all... Continue reading

Hello. It's the middle of the week, and still no interviews. I have to keep trying. Today was the Feast of St. Nektarios. Yesterday was St. Michael's Day. We got bottles of holy oil after liturgy this morning. I have hope that this will offer me some comfort. I had... Continue reading

Hi, everyone. Happy All Saints' Day if you're celebrating today. I lost my job on Monday. It's been difficult to get used to it, because I was all set to get up early and have pancakes like I usually do... but sometimes you can't prevent things. I am trying not... Continue reading

It's Tuesday evening. I had some nosebleeds on and off the past couple days. Maybe it's the time of year. It died down a little today, so I hope I'll see the end of it this week. We got some rain. I also get nosebleeds when it's cold, so once... Continue reading

Hello. This past week, I accidentally post-dated the check I gave at church, because I forgot what day it really was. Oops. I hope that didn't cause any problems. :) I downloaded, for the second time, a free copy of the Douay-Rheims Bible for my e-book reader. I had another... Continue reading

Hello. :) Today is Saturday. I took some pictures in church last week, and for once, they weren't all that blurry. :) Someday, if I'm able, I may get one of those super-fancy cameras with a really good lens, but for now, my simple camera will do. I got a... Continue reading

Hello. It's Wednesday, and I was able to avoid eating meat today. I was nervous, because my father had to go for a pre-operational test to see if he can have hip replacement surgery, but Dad was fine, and the surgery is set for next Tuesday. I'll be praying for... Continue reading

Hello. Tomorrow is the first of June. The year always seems to go by so quickly for me. :) I had some more unfortunate arguments on a discussion board. I regret that I lost control of my temper, although I was the subject of the same thing from the other... Continue reading

It's Bright Week. Hope everyone is enjoying themselves. Because I have to go to work, I haven't been able to go to the morning liturgies, but I attended almost everything in Holy Week, including Pascha. It was an amazing experience. One of the most joyful and beautiful things I've ever... Continue reading

So, here we are. It's the middle of April. We had a guest priest today. He gave a very good homily. Palm Sunday is only one week away, so we must think about the approach of the Lord and how we have been treating others. It's interesting to think how... Continue reading

It's Monday, it's nearly the end of March, and I start a new job tomorrow. I'm very grateful, but very nervous as well. I hope I manage to get some sleep tonight. There are only a few more weeks left in Lent. I have to say, I'm not doing as... Continue reading

Hello. It's Wednesday, and we continue to make progress in Lent. I am doing okay on the food front, and I've given away quite a few books and movies to the library. In the past few days, I've tried to spend more time in prayer, and although it wasn't so... Continue reading
