My, its been a while since Ive posted anything on here. Well, needless to say, I've been busy. Doing what you ask? A lot!
First, Lou and I have finally put the finishing touches on graduating from school by ordering our own portraits with our gowns. Im putting them in frames as I type this. Yee haw! Ive also got back my corrected Honors photos and I got all my diplomas and such and have hung them up accordingly. Good bye school!!
In other news, Ive somehow landed myself a job at YAI/NIPD as a teacher of sorts. Ive always wanted to work there, but needed a Bachelor's to get any of the good jobs. Well, my plan wasn't to get any other job till, like, next year, but this opportunity was right there so I finally updated my resume and they called me for their private job fair. So I went and there was something called a group interview and I seriously blew everyone else out of the water. Between all my psychological/biological/science background and my knowledge of the company in general, I was the most articulate one and hence, got the position. The bad side is that they put me with one of the most difficult groups: dual diagnosed mentally retarted with behaviour or emotional problems. I assume they think that because I have educational background in human behavior and conseling that I can take these people on? I dunno, but I hope it's not as bad as some make it seem. So anyway, because of that I've been busy putting resumes together, getting my references straight, finding a new suit (which I did and I like it alot), finding new clothes and shoes and purses and probably spending way too much on that stuff, and of course, alternators!
Yeah totally crazy! I was driving down Coney Island Aveneue and my battery light goes on and the dash goes "ding ding ding" so I assumed my battery wasn't good anymore and it was time to get a new one. So I make a pit stop to get a battery and put it in ($80 btw) and get going to Long Island to do some shopping. Well, the light is still on and its still dinging everytime I start the car so I assumed I needed to reset something so I just left it as is 'till I got home. Well, when we were done shopping, the light came on again and this time, another light came on... so I drove off... and another light... I was getting nervous... so I pulled off the Southern State and made my way to the Sunrise Highway. By the time I got there, all my dash lights were on and my tachometer and speedometer and fuel and temp guages were all off, my lamps werent working and so I was like "WTF"? and so I blew a red light to pull over to a park and ride lot in Freeport. Lucky me because as I was making the turn my power steering died and then my car. So I let it roll into a spot and called G with the trusty Jeep. I thought it was the battery but he charged my battery up and only got about one minute of power before it died again. So me and Lou went across the way to ask the firehouse if they knew where to get a battery. They didn't but they said I could leave my car in their lot and get it towed tomorrow. Well, I did just that. The next day I came back with the Jeep and realized that the Jeep with the steel bumper was not going to bump my car across the Sunrise to the the Firestone. Hell no! Then I'd have to get body work done as well. (he bumped my pontiac before but who cared about that stupid car??) So I called a tow truck to tow it about three blocks and left the car there to get a new alternator! Three hundred plus bucks for that job, sheesh! And I was going to go and kill that guy at RS Strauss for selling me a bad battery, but his life has been spared. I should have called Amex, I think I get free towing cuz Im a gold member or something... I think I was less than 50 miles though. Freeport isnt that far away.
So no, I havent been updating like I said and I guess I feel kind of bad... I have so much to do on the site its so daunting. maybe I can get something done tomorrow but not this weekend because I have to get ready for part two of my interview on Monday. Then polish and wax the car. And laundry and clean up all the clothes I bought off the floor. etc etc.
Well, I guess I better get back to putting my photos away.
