Wow, it's been a while.

That last post. So full of optimism. Oh well, it's my nature. I always think my fabulous life is waiting just around the corner.

I didn't get that job. I've had two more interviews since then and didn't get those either. I really didn't think it would take this long. Damn. All I want to do is work and live and do something fun every once in a while.

I'm taking English 1A this semester. I just finished my research paper. It's due on Monday. After that I have two more essays and then we're done. I have not enjoyed this class. The teacher has us jumping through too many hoops. It's been one big pain in the ass.

Today I went to Home Depot and bought a few plants and some supplies. I decided since I can't afford to realize my completely awesome front yard design, I can at least throw down a couple hundred bucks and make it pretty. Hector had fixed my sprinklers, but a couple of them broke right away so I need to get him back here. I want to get the lawn in shape and put in a couple of planting beds. Right now a friend of Paige's is staying with us so I'm going to have him (name's Ray) help me with the heavy work. There's still a lot of gravel imbedded in the soil, so we'll need to dig that out before any planting can be done.

These are not good times right now. I think getting the front yard looking good will help my spirits. Once I'm through with school I'm going to step up my job search efforts. Look for me at the Dollar Store.

Yes, I know I'm complaining.
