Wow, where did this week go. I am going to buy a 2011 calendar soon and make a note in it in the month of March and April that once July comes in, the months start to hightailing it right out of the year. I declare, July is just a blur when I think of it.

The pursuit of a program at a couple of different schools has been quite eye opening. I have stopped the search for now and have made a conscious effort to really think of what I need to be doing. I have had jobs to pay bills, but I feel the need to follow my life's purpose at this point. We will see how that goes and by Monday I hope to have a more chosen pursuit when it comes to schools and programs. USC has never failed me and my heart is with my alma mater, but I just don't know.

I have been looking for jobs as I said I would and I have gotten calls back, thankfully. The problem has been that trainings take place during the hours of my full time job. That is not good. I can't tell the office manager here that I won't be in for the next two weeks because I will be training from 8 to 4 or 9 to 5 on my new job. That is not good. I think I may stick with my old trusty stand by from college and just make some money from there. The freelance typing job didn't pan out because of the color of my skin. I was kind of disappointed, but thankful that the lady was honest with me. Some people just don't get it when it comes to race.

My home life dealt a blow earlier in the week, but my newfound focus on me enabled me to keep moving with little disturbance. Thank God!

As we fastly approach the weekend, I say thank you Lord for letting this week be a good one in every way!!!


  1. How in the world could she tell you that your race was why you weren't hired!? There are laws against that, you know?

    [I know, I know ... you'd have to prove it, and of course she'd deny telling you any such thing.] Pisses me off, is what I'm saying.

    Good luck with your quest.

  2. Thank you for being pissed at this issue. It's good to know that the majority of people would be pissed at it too. Initially, I was quite upset as well. I continued to listen to her simply because I could hear my mama saying no matter how ignorant she may be, she is still your elder. This lady is from the good old south and I do come into contact with people like her from time to time (fortunately for us all (them and me), not a lot). I actually hung up with her without skipping a beat and losing my cool. I then called my job from college and talked for a while with the owner (hard to do typically). When one door closes another one opens, thankfully!

  3. What the hell? Did I miss this? Because of your skin color?!? I apologize girl, I am so self-absorbed that I did not know about this ~sad face~

  4. Oh no girl, no apology needed. After I wrote about it here, I kind of let it go. I don't think I mentioned it to anyone out aloud. It is what it is you know - her job to give and she has her pick.
