I know, it’s been a couple weeks. But there have been some interesting things going on since I last posted.
First of all, I finally got a job! Starting October 3rd, I will be working as a file clerk at a local insurance company here in Idaho. The hours are 8:30 am to 5 pm (MST), Monday through Friday.
The one downside is, it is a temporary job. And I mean it is a very temporary job – it’s only going to be a 3 to 4 week job. Though there is the possibility of extension at the end of the 3 to 4 weeks. I hope an extension will be offered, because I could certainly use the money, and no mistake. So, even though I will be set for employment for the month of October, I still have November and December to worry about, so I am still looking for jobs.
Speaking of money. I have started to look at everything realistically, and it has become painfully clear to me that, come December, there is really going to be no way I will be able to go back to and remain in Henderson, NV. I mean, a lot could happen between now and December. But, most likely, I will have to move back in with family in Iowa. I’m not entirely happy about that, because I really wanted to strike out on my own this time. But, at the same time, I’m not entirely sad about that. Because I can and will still go through with all my plans – you know, going back to college to become a counselor, getting my own apartment, getting my driver’s license. It won’t change anything, really, other than I still feel that my future doesn’t truly lie in Iowa. So. Think of it as a temporary setback. Perhaps one day, I can pack up and move to Henderson, or wherever. The future is wide open, really. It’s all good. It will all be good.
Remember when I said I’d gotten some news I didn’t want about a particular family member? Well, I have since gotten worse news about said family member. But I do not, repeat, do not want to discuss it here on the blog at the present time. Everyone who needs to know about it knows about it. That will have to do for now. I certainly hope that would suffice for you as well.
On a brighter note, I have a new/old celebrity crush again. It’s Nicolas Cage. Again. *silly grin* Sorry, but it’s true. Although, I do feel really bad about what has happened between him and his wife (if, indeed, that is the truth). I don’t wish to seem rude or naysaying when I say that, given some things I’d read in the past, I had a feeling that might happen eventually. But it’s still a bad deal, and I hope they can either reconcile or get through whatever happens relatively unscathed, especially for benefit of their son. So. That’s that. Not gonna say any more. Actually, I’m sorry to have said anything in the first place. But I’m not taking any of it back. Best wishes to you, Mr. Cage, and to your family. I sincerely hope everything works out.
On a different brighter note, I don’t know if you remember my once going on about a particular story idea I’d been working on. Remember “Cherchez La Femme”? Yeah. I am actually on the precipice, and am thisclose to actually begin to seriously start writing that story. The rough outline I’ve been working on exploded from about 20 pages to about 80 pages now. I like where it is going, what I have planned. I like that there are not any loose ends and, in the case of one particular development within the story, there are not going to be any wasted moments. And I have a soundtrack in mind for it, and I love all the songs therein. I am glad for the inspiration. I really want this story to work, and I hope it can and does eventually come to fruition.
As I type this, Iowa has been inundated with flooding concerns. They say it’s not going to be on par with the flood of 2008, but it will be pretty darn close. Last I read, the Cedar River at Cedar Rapids was going to crest at about 25 to 26 feet, which would cause some pretty major flooding in the downtown area. Please keep my family and all the people in the affected area in your thoughts and prayers.
And, really, that’s about all that’s been going on.
So, you know, that’s what’s happenin’.
I’ll try to do better next post.
