Yeah, about that once a week goal? Difficult with a full time job. 

Don't get excited, it's just an overnight position as an inventory associate at Wal-Mart, but it's a job. I'm, honestly, not overly fond of it. I've never been so covered in bruises, and one of the co-managers is usually in a bitchy mood, but the job itself is fine. As it is, I'm thinking of switching to substitute teaching in the fall, and definitely going back to school for a more specific degree in the future.

So, while I fail at setting and keeping goals for myself, at least those few of you who care know where I am.

So I'm a little over my once a week goal, but eh. At least it hasn't been a year...

Anyways. I have made a somewhat major decision: next month I am going to enroll (re-enroll) at the community college I graduated from in 2012. This time I'm going for a three semester long program for an associate's to be a medical administrative assistant. I still want to be a writer, I will always want to write, but I'll still need a more secure and steady job in case things don't work out the way I want. 

Short journal entry, but better than nothing.

EDIT:

Uh, yeah, okay, so turns out I'm not going back to school. Oops. I recently discovered a job opportunity that would work out better and faster than returning to classes, but I'm not giving any details until I see how it goes. Anyways, teaches me not to make premature announcements.

On another, very unrelated note, I have been doing some cursory research into possibly living in another country when I'm older. Obviously this isn't an announcement or foregone conclusion, but if anyone knows anything about the best foreign (to Americans) countries, or anything about living outside the U.S. as a U.S. citizen, or just wants to chat about the topic, lemme know. It helps to have an outside perspective. (BTW, the countries I'm giving serious consideration to are Denmark, Sweden, Germany, basically any of your Scandinavian countries, or maybe Italy or France. So, yeah, reeeeeaaaaallllll narrowed down there, huh?)
Sneem, Ireland by DallyloverXD
Sneem, Ireland
Once upon a time (2007), a sad, lonely girl (guess who?) was selected to go on a student ambassador trip to England, Wales, and Ireland. It was a grand adventure, and many friends were had and sights were seen, but the girl had yet to see any sights that truly took her breath away. The Tower of London was filled with evil, hateful ravens that kept trying to steal her breakfast, and Stonehenge, while quiet and well-respected, was crowded; and Wales was populated by attack sheep (though the girl still wonders if perhaps she was being tricked or a joke was being played...). One day, after a long bus ride, the girl and her companions arrived in the small, elegant little village of Sneem, Ireland. Nestled in rolling hills and mountains, surrounded by green on all sides, and inhabited by, not only the friendliest people, but also a small pack of the healthiest, loveliest, friendliest stray dogs, Sneem was like a village from a fairytale. Well, in the boarding house where they stayed, the girl entered her room, mocked the guy who was forced to carry her huge suitcase up the stairs (HA!) by the landlady, and turned to the window. Her breath caught in her throat. She rushed to the window, and gaped. It was the most beautiful sight she had ever seen, and would ever see. Ever since that day, the girl has been restless, with a deep desire to travel the world, and find the other beautiful places and hidden treasures of the world.

However, the girl is poor. Dead broke. With no job and a BA in English that is getting her f$ck all in employment and income. She is sad and lonely again, but by God does she have some beautiful photos. The End.

Okay, so, long little story there, but all true, and in honor of the most beautiful back garden view I have ever seen. Sneem, along with having a marvelous name, was a wonderful little town. You take three left turns, and you're right back where you started. Good food too, and friendly people, as seems to be the norm in Ireland. As for the photo it is completely untouched and unedited. I saw absolutely no good reason to mess with something so beautiful. So enjoy.

Still by DallyloverXD
Still
The third from a series of photos I took looking over my back porch as it snowed. As is my usual, there is minimal editing, just some tweaks on the colors to make things look a bit spookier (I swear it looks like the background of Silent Hill or something). Enjoy!

This is the same image as the last one I posted, but this time I saturated the color instead of making it look more black and white. I couldn't decide which I preferred, so have them both! :)

At night, when the objective world has slunk back into its cavern and left dreamers to their own, there come inspirations and capabilities impossible at any less magical and quiet hour. No one knows whether or not he is a writer unless he has tried writing at night.
