Crafty....that's me....too bad I can't make any money at it!
My very good friend recently passed her brokers license test. They say no one passes it the first time....she did. Of course she did, because, she's a genius. She should be getting the silly little piece of paper in the mail any day now...so, I decided, being the good and supportive friend that I am, I wanted to show her how proud I am of her and acknowledge her accomplishment....above you see the little 'candy bowl' I assembled as a little chachkee to display on her desk....I have to fill it with some candy still, chocolate in her case...but, I think it came out rather adorable. (not to mention, displaying this little item on her desk will seriously screw with the branch manager....same guy who 'released me' from employment in june) (no, I'm not bitter, in fact, rather grateful, however, a little harmless ribbing never hurt anyone, right?)
Yes, that is all I got done today.....SOOOO what. Again, getting stuff done and not worrying about what is to be.....rrriiiiiight.
Got the results of my 'assessment' test today. Scored rather well, considering it's been 25 years since high school and I've had no serious education since then. I still don't know what affect the test results have on my acceptance to school.... need to speak to the admissions advisor....guess I'll be doing that tomorrow....wish me luck!
I am a woman on a mission to begin the life I have taken for granted for too long. Many changes have come in the last five years and while I have weathered them, I have not seriously taken any action to make changes for the enrichment of my life. The stories of my journey will be posted here......stay tuned for daily status of finally living a life not lived.....
To really live.....quit waiting for tomorrow....what if tomorrow never comes....what if you wake up, get dressed and head off to that job you hate and you get hit by a bus on the way.....what will you regret NOT doing? Telling someone you're sorry for hurting them? Giving your kid the 'attaboy' he or she needs to get them to the next level in their growth? Telling your friends how much they mean to you? Being there for your spouse when they've had a really bad day? Or, maybe you keep saying you're going to finally become the person you were meant to be......and you missed your chance because you didn't believe that NOW IS THE RIGHT TIME!
Been There, Done THAT..........
