It seems when I left school I had less and less to write about on here. As it stands I update this thing once a month just to keep my archives current. Its not a bad things but I just remember updating five times a day with thoughts on bacteria or something. I suppose the reason of this thing back then was to channel some angry energy into something minutely productive. Well, I thought about this blog and my website for a while and even though Ive never finished my moving video, I do plan to change this blog and webpage. I just havent really had a great theme lately. Since I have some free time at my work, my brain has been creating a new backdrop for my blog or so and I am beginning to see what I would like to do. Although I would like to keep the space theme on my webpage, I really want to change this blog in some way.
my life has been pretty stable and normal lately and I am very happy about that. I do have a problem. Of course all problems revolve around school and it annoys me that it still gives me problems. So here it is: I am not goingto ASU afterall. I did a lot of research at all the schools I can find and one of like three schools Id consider going to is in all places New York. In CUNY. Yeah its Baruch. I am so annoyed because that school is the only school I found that offers a very VERY flexible schedule and they dont care how long you take or if you are part time one semester and full time the next. They also offer my next choice major which is an industrial organizational psychology MBA. Unfortunately, ASU does not offer I/O Psy MBAs and the part time program is ONLY general management, which Im not dying to pay $40K to study. Because of Baruch's flexibility, Id be able to stretch the classes out over a few years which will reduce my out of pocket costs because I get tuition reimbursement.
So here is my new plan already in progress. Currently I am in Fedex's "aspire" program which is a course of training that helps you become a manager. What I plan to do is become a management candidate and apply for a position in New York, preferably Long Island if I can help it. Then I will hopefully get a position close to school so I can take classes and get my MBA. I hope to buy a small house in Suffolk and then move somewhere else (like maybe back to AZ) and visit my home on LI when I want. Or maybe one of my friends can rent it from me. In any case, that is my plan for now.
Oh yeah and to show that I was set on this, I drove all the way to Los Angeles to take one of the required classes in this "aspire" program. Here are some pics:
These fans were not spinning...
I think they help blow that smog around.
Nothing like overcast and surf.
Or a washed out rose with a bee.
As it stands, I will have to leave Arizona and go back to New York for a little while. At first I was bummed, but I think that going back with a job I like and anticipation of school will help me adjust once more. The extra incentive is that once I finish that, I can leave anyway, unless I love it so much... hmm, not banking on that but okay.
I do have other news, though. I finally am able to drive the pup without feeling scared, sweaty, and nauseated. I finally can drive it comfortably enough that I dont dwell on it all morning and have to play "99 luftballoons" while driving to calm me down. See here:
One of the better pups.
No, I do not need a booster seat.
What I drive in Phoenix. I drive a straight truck in Scottsdale.
Take a look inside the pup. Well, the tractor part anyway... You can even hear 99 Luftballoons in the background!
I guess that is all the news for now. It's been hot here. My electric bill gives me the average outside temperature and according to APS, the average last month was 97 degrees and this month has been 93 degrees. I think the hottest day so far has been 115 degrees. It hasnt been so bad. I think the humidity is way worse in NY and no matter what some "'zonie" tells you, the "monsoon" season is hardly a monsoon and there is hardly humidity. I think the humisity lasted about two weeks tops. And its not even close to what NY humidity is like. Right now it says Brooklyn is at 93%! The highest I saw here was around 70%. Gimme a break. Anyway, I pretty much made it through the summer and I am not dead nor am I running for the mountains because I cant take it. This is "ok." And its not like I set my thermostat real low. I set it to about 80 degrees when I come back from work, about 78 at night so I can fall asleep, and I leave it around 88 when I go to work. No, Meux Meux is not going to die. She's fine. In fact, she is gaining too much weight. I had to but lower fat cat food for her. And I bought her a cat drinking fountain because she loves faucet water. I hope she likes it, I cant return it because I bought it on Amazon. Oh well.
