Moonlight of a Nothingless Mind!

Just random things I find or thoughts in my head, Pictures I take or stuff I draw and create! =)
I mentioned this before in a previous post, about “Feast or Famine.” Good Lord why does this have to be true. Talk about utter confusion! I have a job I really enjoy, but the pay is a little less than stellar. I get a job offer a couple of weeks later for the same pay different company, that was an easy decline! Then, I get a call from a staffing agency down the road that came across my profile from Workforce Solutions that they had a job for me, I already have one, but lets check it out! I go interview with the agency the next day and after that concluded she says she will forward my resume to the company. When I got home that day, another job I applied for called me to set up an interview (like what the hell is going on here?). Obviously, I accepted that interview too. I arrived to that one and spoke to the boss and the boss’s boss. Oh, and by now I am pro at interviewing so needless to say I nailed it! They called me back a few hours later and told me that they had decided not to proceed with any other applicants and then proceeded to offer me a job doing the same thing I do with my present employer. I accepted!!! 
This job pays a bit more and although it offers less hours and is a further drive, in the long run this job is going to be a lot more beneficial to my future! The door is wide open there, anything you can think of you can pretty much do it here at this place! But I still love my current job so I decided to also keep that one! I talked to my boss and explained the situation, he said he understood and that he didn’t want to lose me as an employee because I was one of the best ones he had (I bust my ever living @$$ for this place without a complaint). So he said he would help me work around my new schedule! 
I never heard back from the staffing agency, or so I thought until the other day when they called to schedule a phone interview with the actual company. Now this company is also a great company and is based out of Germany; however, they only have two locations in the USA, one in my little town in Florida and the other in Seattle. The rest of the locations are spread around other continents. I feel as if this location issue really limits my ability to progress with this company. The location here is a very small location on the corner of a big plaza, with a small office and a small warehouse. I feel so confused about it though because it is only a 5 min drive, it will pay more, they are offering full time, and for all I know this could be a “diamond in the rough” job. I am going to do the phone interview, ask a million questions and just play it by ear and pray on it. I was almost hoping they wouldn’t call me back so I could forfeit any responsibility of making a life decision…. Why do they all come at once? I go a year of famine and now I am being ambushed by a feast! I defintely feel blessed!

I’m blue da ba dee da ba die

Blue is the color of my energy! =]

I concur mostly except the: “An emotionally driven personality, you need to be liked and accepted. It is one of the “needs” that can cause apprehension in your personality” part. That may have been me at one point, but not anymore. 

and…”While you don’t like to have discord or conflict in your life, you are often the cause of conflict with others” First part, ME! That last part, yeah, defintely NOT me! 

Lastly…”and worry about every little thing”….Ya right, I don’t really worry about anything. I might get irritated, but I don’t really worry! My husband tells me I don’t worry enough LOL…who says that? He worries enough for the both of us so I save my energy for more important things, like taking aura quizzes! 

Your Aura is Blue!
Personality: Blue’s are very loyal and can be the truest friend any aura could hope to find. On the inside, blues tend to be emotional and even a bit moody. However, you know that other auras depend on you, so you put on a strong front. They tend to live a quiet but enriching life. Blues are very giving of them and is hard to let go of relationships. They believe the key to living a good life is simple: Be as honest with yourselves and others as possible. They value the truth over everything else.Blue will remain loyal to those who are honest with them, even if their honesty hurts. Compared to most other auras, blues handle the truth very well. They take every event into stride. Blues are the calm spot in a sea of chaos. They think that the solution to most problems is open communication; they wish that people would be more real with each other. A Blue personality uses its five physical senses to access information. An emotionally driven personality, you need to be liked and accepted. It is one of the “needs” that can cause apprehension in your personality. You are a polite, cooperative person who seeks to create conflict-free surroundings. You possess highly developed powers of observation. Family is important to you and you sometimes find yourself in the role of being a caretaker. You are conservative, reliable and trustworthy - you are quite trusting of others although you are very wary in the beginning until you are sure of the other person. You are not impulsive- you always think before you speak and act and do everything at your own pace in your own time. You take time to process and share your feelings. You are genuine and sincere, and you take your responsibilities seriously. You have a deep need for peace and harmony in your everyday life. You appear to be confident and self-controlled, but may be hiding your vulnerable side. You are generally fairly even-tempered, unless your emotions take over - then you can become either moody and over-emotional, or cool and indifferent. You are sensitive to the needs of others. While you are friendly and sociable, you prefer the company of your own close group of friends. You are a rescuer and love to be needed. You can be rigid - you like to stick to what is familiar to you- you stubbornly do things your way even if there is a better way. Untidiness and unpredictability overwhelm you. You don’t like to draw attention to yourself. While you don’t like to have discord or conflict in your life, you are often the cause of conflict with others; you can be quite manipulative but in a very subtle way.
You make a loyal and faithful marriage partner and you are an honest, trustworthy and sincere friend. You are aware of others feelings and sensitive to the moods of others. You are approachable and friendly, always making people feel welcome in your life. You have a thirst for knowledge in order to gain wisdom and appear knowledgeable in whatever area interests you. You can be too cautious and worry about every little thing.

Okay, I really need to get working on my essay….buuuuut after this one last song! =]

Squarehead - “2025”

Oh how I wish someone I knew liked Indie like I did! ….or just even liked it a little. I don’t know one person personally that enjoys the uniqueness of Indie Music. And if they do, it’s only one or two songs that the radio deemed worthy of listeners (not that that is bad, but I just don’t know anyone open minded enough to deviate from the mainstream). Sometimes I find songs and just wish more than anything there was someone I could call and say “you gotta hear this song I found” and they legitimately appreciate the music. 

But I don’t, and that’s why I fiddle around on various Indie Rock music groups via the internet and even made one myself. I go through on and off posting spurts but if someone reads this and is interesting in Indie Music, follow my playlist, I have over 400 songs posted

Another song on repeat!!! I kind of fell off the music bandwagon for a bit, been listening to the same 20 songs for the last five months. Between school and work, I haven’t much downtime. I love the typography of the lyrics in this vid also!! Just great in every aspect! She has such a wonderful voice mixed with a captivating beat!

Gossling - “Never Expire”

I am writing an essay for my ethics class, my topic is about preferential treatment, affirmative action, and workforce hiring quotas for minorities and women. I wanted to see if I could find any interesting information packed videos on YouTube and I came across this video. I never really thought about the fact that this is something that happens everywhere, not just in a America. But considering they only brought it up once and then reverted right back to issues in China; I’m just trying to understand the part of the video where they talk about America, did they not understand the irony in that clip, or was that intended?

(To understand the video, turn on English captions at “cc.” bottom right tool bar)

I just really love this song. Stuck on repeat all morning! 

I have only two emotions,
Careful fear and dead devotion.
I can’t get the balance right.

The Neighbourhood - “Sweater Weather”

Pet Peeve Sunday

Okay, sooooo I have a pet peeve. It’s one I have had for a while and it just increasingly gets worse. I know it may sound childish, but isn’t that what pet peeves are all about? 

Okay so here goes, brace yourself, cause ima bout to unload….

I HATE that all my stupid friends …want to have birthday parties, for their stupid kids every stupid flipping year. And to boot, they also want to have stupid birthday parties for themselves… UUUGGGGGHHHHH!!!!  

I mean seriously, how much money do these people think I have? Because I cannot go to a party and eat all the food and not bring a present, well I could but I wouldn’t feel right about it. 

Then if you don’t show up they’re like: “Didn’t you get my Facebook invite?” 
….I’m gonna shove that Facebook invite bleepity bleep bleep bleep!!!

Just this month alone I was invited to FIVE birthday parties and the month isn’t even over. I don’t have kids, and going to a party and watching all the bratty kids screaming because someone stole their cake is not my idea of a good time. Last month I was invited to two baby showers and two birthday parties. and earlier this year I was invited to another five baby showers and about twenty-five birthday’s (kids and adults). And these baby showers just rip me up because that means next year I will be invited to SEVEN MORE stupid birthdays. 

When I was kid, I think I had at MOST, four birthday parties and two of them were family ones. and I turned out just A-Okay. These damn kids do not need all these flipping parties and you adults do not need to have a happy 37th party bash, GROW UP! Milestones are the only acceptable birthday parties for adults. Call me when you celebrate your 40th. Until then, I could care less if you are another year older. You’re stupid and so is your kid. 

Yeah yeah yeah, I know…I sound so mean, but really? How on earth does one have time for so many parties? And all would be good if they weren’t offended when I didn’t show up. And maybe some would say: “well maybe they enjoy your presence”…NO, they don’t, because if they did they would spend more than five minutes saying hello. They just want more gifts for their spoiled rotten kids and to look popular to all the people present and the ones on Facebook who will see their photos. 

I originally decided to ban ALL parties! But, I can’t really do that. So, I will only attend them if it is:  a: someone who lives close by, b: someone I actually like, c: if the kid is a legitimately good deserving kid of my hard earn money, and d: If I am insanely bored and need cake! 

Maybe one day when I have kids I will feel differently, but I will defintely not be one of those parents who throws a party EVERY YEAR! 

Until then, take your party and shove it! 

That’s all, thank you come again, exits are here, here, here, and here! =] 

Now breath and smile! =]
