BRRRR......winter update.

Oh My Geez!!!! January is far too cold!!!

Anyways, heres the update!

I am enrolling in school for the fall semester. I have been busy looking at scholarship information. My plan is to get a certificate in American Sign Language. Then from there I plan on going into an interpreting program. After that I plan on getting a teaching degree so that I may teach American Sign Language to high school students.

Also, A couple weeks ago, My boyfriend and I joined the gym by our house. Ready to get into shape!! Eating better and working out more!

Other then all of that, I have been job hunting and trying to pick up as many hours as possible at work.

Tough as nails

Wow, talk about a rough end to 2010 and a rocky start to 2011:

I lost over half of my hours at my job...which was making next to nothing anyways...but to put it in a real perspective, I went from making about $600 a month to now about $250 a month. It really sucks, but the one restaurant owner wouldnt sign the lease for our booth so we couldnt sell there much relief though, the restaurant closed about 4 days later. They are supposedly undergoing changes in order to reopen in february. However, the owner is unreliable and unprofessional as a businessman, so we shall see what happens with that location. On a positive note, I do still have a job. I work one night a week selling pulltabs and another evening I sell bar bingo with my sister. So now I am atleast available to take any shifts that open up if need be.

I had a contact from Mango Tango (the restaurant that closed down). He was a customer who owns his own business. His office is actually less than 2 miles from my house, and he had given me a business card to inquire about a customer service position. I sent him an email yesterday morning, so I will cross my fingers on this one.

I also have been applying for jobs like crazy lately. Hopefully something will turn up. I would like to start my own business, but at this point in time, I really dont know what goods or services I would even want to offer. I have been applying to housecleaning companies, and I really wouldnt mind that. That would actually be a company I could start, the hardest part would be finding the clientel.

At this point, I am open to any ideas for jobs, and or schooling. I want to go back to school to get some training, but reality is, I cant afford to do so on $250 a month. I cant continue to rely on my boyfriend to support us. He doesnt make much as is since he is working retail. I wouldnt mind working retail along with my current job. It is just hard to find a job for me since I dont really have an impressive history.

My friend's dad is opening a coffee shop. I told her I would even move out there to help out if i could, but that is 750 miles away and I dont really have that kind of money to move right now. My life is such a wreck and a mess right about now!
