just got the letter from metro tech. no interview for me. poo. :(

a lush, green paradise, just beyond the glass. :)

So, telling the fam was hard. Probably the hardest thing thus far. I got a new place, I'm in the process of moving and packing and all that general un-pleasantness. I haven't heard back from Metro Tech yet, supposedly they are still selecting applications to interview. I just got wind of an opening at the state board of cosmetology office for an inspector, I'm filling that app out now. all that driving will very much suck (driving to the office at shepherd mall, driving all over the state to do inspections) so I'm trying to stall a little until I hear one way or the other. I'm involved with a sexy project, more on that later. :)

What doesn't kill you just might make you stronger.

So, here goes: there's a lot happening right now.

The big thing is that Clint and I want and need different things right now, and have been drifting apart for a very long time now, but have only had the guts to say so to each other in the last month or so. We had several weeks of serious talks with ugly cries, the high points of those being that we realized that we got married with the idea that we were doing it for the other one, to make them happy because they really wanted it. So, we both have been making sacrifices that harbor some resentment, the big ones being Clint wants to move away and find out if he can make any kind of living doing comedy, and I want to stay near my family and friends and finish school for now. I want to start a family before I turn 30, Clint's not sure if he'll ever want that. So, in order to preserve the things that are important to ourselves and each other, chiefmost our respect and admiration of each other, we finally decided last week that we were tired of beating our dead horse and have started the process of filing for divorce. I know, it seems like we are quitting and running away, but we are so tired.

Please don't get ugly and judgmental with us, and realize we are still good friends, so no bashing either.

Lazy day off! I'm dog-sitting a super low-key beast for the next couple of weeks. He goes out in the morning & goes in after work. I feed and water him, and offer encouraging words and petting. He's pleasant as far as charges go. :)

Man alive, is it windy today! The sky to the east is visibly tinged with orangey-brown dust. Ugh. Contact wearers, beware.

Still no word from Metro Tech. Hopefully soon. If that doesn't pan out, I'm considering asking about a move to a salon one of my friends from hair school opened not too long ago.

Metro Tech called me today to say that the job I applied for got changed a little. Basically, instead of it being a program quality control position, it'd be an instructor position, and if enrollment dropped or something, I'd be out on my ear, since it's a need-based position. Interview will be set up this upcoming week, I think. Cross your fingers.

Springtime can kill you.

So, my kitchen has mostly been on hiatus, what with two weekend trips to barbershop contests, Red Dirt shows, and other various time-eaters. I did make a wonderful quiche the other day. I jazzed it up by using real mushrooms and changing some of the ingredient amounts. Pretty good, I didn't have any leftovers.

There's been a lot going on in the personal realm as well, but it still has need for secrecy. So, in a couple of weeks or so, I suspect everything will have fallen into place enough than I can talk about it all.

I watched a work crew of bees doing their hard labor yesterday. Bees are tireless little creatures!

My brother and his wife had a baby on St. Patrick's Day. Her name is Emily and she's awesome. :)
