Smells Like Halloween.

First and foremost, I'd like to apologize for being the worst blogger most likely known to humankind.  No promises., but I can try to do better.  

So. What's new in my life?  Well.  I have a little case of the blues.  There's this cute quote from an 8 year old that goes something like.. "If you're tired of being blue then paint yourself a different color"., and I need to try to do that. I just feel like I'm having this little dilemma.  I'm working these two part time jobs.  And I'm glad that I have them.. but I need to be applying for 'careers'.  The thing is., I work a lot and then don't have too much free time to sit and apply for jobs.  So.  I'm feeling kind of lame.  But at least I look 18 and people don't think I'm wasting my life when they see me.  They must just think I'm more of a high school worker than a lifer.  And that's a good thing.  But.  My goal is to apply to 5 real jobs by Sunday.  And now that I said it., I must.  So. I'll have to let you know when I do.  


This morning, I woke up with a migraine.  I sure do love Fall., but season changes are the worst for my migraines.  So.  I woke up, called in and said I wouldn't be helping people Save Big Money today, took some drugs, and went back to bed.  Then I woke up again, made eggs, and sat in the chair to relax a bit more.  Took some more drugs, sewed a little bit, called Julie, called Blake, skyped Hillary, went to visit DQ, called Blake again, and skyped Julie.  It was truly grand.  It was just what the doctor ordered.  So.  Tomorrow it's back to the real world.  Gettin my back cracked, Savin Big Money, and helpin Cortt study for Statistics.    

In more regards to my blues., I watched this to cheer me up today: 

That's all.
Except. Amongst my blues, I'm so grateful for my friends.  Seriously. They're the greatest.

Valor.


valor: great courage in the face of danger. 
I just watched Act of Valor with my mama. Man. So intense. So good. You should watch it and then re-read this poem. At least twice.  
“So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.
Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none.
When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself. Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision.
When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.”
~ Chief Tecumseh (Poem from Act of Valor the Movie)
