I'm switching over!

So, I've decided today, like just very recently that I am switching over to my new blog clickclickcorey.blogspot.com!
Please please please come follow me there!
It's going to be mostly the same thing but a little more defined and a tad more professional (I'm letting the link go on my resume and such...)

I'm really, really excited! Now all I need is a pretty (and all my own) blog look. That's where the real work is going to come in. :/

I'm keeping this blog for my more personal back entries that I don't want to be without but don't feel are appropriate for the direction I want to take.

P.S. I've only read one lesson of Elsie's e-course and I've already learned so frickin much! I think things are really going to come together very nicely here soon! Best money I've spent in a long time!

My Favorite Song Right Now

Sorry for the ad, it was the shortest one I could find!

Latest Purchase

Imagine my surprise when I thought I was going to get a poster and instead got this. But I still love it! I know it's backwards (yay photo booth) but this is all I have right now.

I made some more purchases today but those are mall purchases. Like a purse from H&M and the second book in The Dark Tower series. I also purchase a dark purple sweater and a Keep a Breast lanyard. Lastly some supplies for my lil (youngest) sister's birthday. We're going ice skating!!! YAY I can cross that off my Christmas to do list!

Alright, time to work on my list of things to do to get my resume all pretty! Oh yes and I started a new blog about my job search and my photography finds! It's clickclickcorey.blogspot.com take a look if you like!

being a part of something bigger

This is what I did tonight, read a draft of a friend's novel. Her first. It's so very exciting and honestly I couldn't put it down! I read the whole thing in two parts tonight. I was suppose to go see Burlesque with S so I read several chapters before and left it on my pillow open to my place to return home to after the movie. I was sure I would get only halfway through at best. But we missed the movie and after some hangouts I came home and started reading again... I got caught up and I didn't stop until I finished it.

It's so exhilirating to get a chance to be a part of someone's big dream. I'm so stoked I get to be a part and when I was writing my first email of comments I was just so stoked to be able to get to talk to the author or a story I was reading for once. All my questions COULD be answered. To save her story she might not answer everything but just being able to get those questions out there was awesome.

I think I did so well with my communication major because I love collaboration, I love bouncing ideas off of other people and creating a work so great. This work is obviously all hers I'm just glad I get a sneak peak into the writer's mind.

Obviously I am going to say NOTHING, and I mean NOTHING about the story except how wonderful it is and how much fun I am having reading and sharing comments. I can't even imagine creating something like this... how do all of the details come together? I am just in awe really.

So that kicked out any Operation Holiday Cheer plans I had for tonight. I did buy some more holiday cards so I am going to start on that list either tomorrow or Saturday and get some out in the mail asap!

I also had to make a visit to the verizon store because last night without any real warning my phone (Blackberry Storm) decided to give me an Error message of death that would not be fixed. I switched back to my Blackberry Curve and did what I could have the texting issues I was having with it in the past. I'm definitely torn between the two phones. I do like touch screen but I also like the keyboard on the curve... I also am waiting for the iPhone to come to Verizon in January. One can only hope and cross fingers!

I got a call from insurance telling me how much I am getting back after they pay my poor, completely broken car off and it's more than I thought. Good news...

A gentleman friend that had been gone for a while in a distant land (no exaggeration) has come back into my life. I'm hesitant and open at the same time if that's even possible. We had really good times before but I'm also really hurt from the most recent male. He was no gentleman. He was an a-hole. But water under the bridge and what not? I guess.

Now it is my bedtime (really need to start going to bed at 12 at the latest) and so I shall sleep!

Today was another Wednesday with Baby Brows. He's so awesome and amazing. That baby brings so many extra smiles to my day it's almost unbelievable. He has such a personality and I'm just blown away every day by new things that he learns to do.
My favorite thing is how happy and excited he gets with himself when he learns something new. That boy has my heart forever.

As far as Operation Holiday Cheer goes... today I made cookies (didn't have a cookie party). They were sugary and delicious even though they were suppose to be oatmeal chocolate chip. I think next time I won't bother with the pre-packaed cookie mix, they are nothing like homemade cookies. Good, but not excellent. I want excellent when I eat a cookie I baked in a home oven. Picky? Maybe. But we have to draw our lines somewhere don't we?

Tonight's holiday movie wasn't really a holiday movie at all but I looked at my small collection of DVDs and watching it just seemed right.

I think I still consider this a holiday movie because I watched it during Christmas vacation one year with my best lady C. I was really sick the next day (super bad cold or some sort of flu) and after dropping my sister off at gymnastics I bought the movie and the soundtrack and I think it was all I watched for a week or two.

For some reason the winter/holiday season makes me so vulnerable to feeling mushy and needy for affection. I find myself hoping more than usual that I'll find someone to share the holiday (and the New Year) with. It's a dangerous time. I'm very open to attack at this time of year. I'm also very open to possibility. I guess there are pros and cons...

While watching Garden State I decided to get back to work on my blanket. This project is taking me a LOT longer than I thought it would! These squares, though small, still take a long time. I made 2 over the course of the movie. I'm averaging about 45 minutes each then? I feel so slow but I crochet pretty fast. So fast my hand cramps sometimes. I'm use to being able to see the growth of the blanket as I continue working on it so maybe that's why this is getting frustrating.

I have so many things to work on and I feel I have no time. I used up a lot of my time earlier taking naps instead of creating. I don't regret it but there's only so much time in a day.

OOOOOOH! I also finished a book today!
Although I am not racing to the bookstore to get the second book in the series I am really curious to see what happens next AND I will be reading the graphic novels as well as watching the movies (I'm not sure if the movies are out yet but they have been talked about since 2007). More research needed obviously.

Again it's late and I am sleepy but I have so much on my mind.

How many days til Christmas?

Today has been a roller coaster of emotions.  Males blowing me off in a big jerky way and others coming back from deployment. Needless to say I was emotionally exhausted when I got home today but in order to keep myself out of depression I decided to watch a holiday movie and start working on a puzzle I bought recently.

The movie:

Definitely a good cheer up and make the most of it movie. Definitely a chick flick. I'm a sucker for both. Especially when I am feeling down in the dumps which I was when I started the movie.


Last night I sent facebook messages to most of my friends requesting their address should they want a holiday card in the mail. I am almost overwhelmed by the response. SO MANY of my friends have sent me their address in the last 24 hours. I'm really excited. I don't even care that I have at least 20 more cards to write now and I have to go buy more. People love getting things in the mail that aren't asking for money and I love putting together letters. WIN WIN!!!

Dear blog readers, if you too want a holiday card email me! I love pen pals and such.
