No More Blankies

I’ve been pretty quite in the blogsphere in the past few days but but for good, or shall I say bad reason. In between watching the Royal Wedding and the take down of Osama Bin Laden, I became unemployed. I don’t want to get into details, but I will say that it sucks and I would never want to wish it upon anyone. But maybe it’s for the best. I’ve been told that it could be a sign that I need to find my true passion and get out of my comfort zone. Basically I’m Linus without his blanket. 

Now the next few months will be filled with job applications and resumes. This will also give me the opportunity to go back to school and finish my degree. I have around 20 credits that I need to complete. Tomorrow I’m going to see an admissions adviser and find out if I can apply for spring semester. This is something I should have finished 6 years ago, but it’s better late than never. 

For the most part I’ve been using this time getting stuff done around the house and movie watching. In the past 5 days I have watched Water for Elephants, Rio and Arthur. The first two were really good and I recommend them. Robert Pattinson breaks out of the Edward Cullen mold with Water for Elephants and Rio was fun and colorful. Makes me want to go to Rio De Janeiro for Carnival. As for Arthur, it had its moments, I liked the chemistry between Russell Brand and Helen Mirren. But it was 20 mins too long. Good thing I had a free movie ticket to see it. 

Lastly thanks to my friends, (real life and on-line) for your support and kind words. Things like this are not fun to go through, but it can be worse. Just have to take this as one of the many lessons in life.

It sounds cliche, but everything happens for a reason. Glad you're taking the opportunity to finish up school!

Also, I'm dying to see Water for Elephants, glad you said it's good!

You will be ok, I just know it! You are strong and intelligent, so I have no doubt it will work out for you.

And I want to see both of those movies!!! I may have to hit up the theater this weekend. I loved the book Water For Elephants. I hope the movie lives up to it.

Thanks! :) I went backwards and now I need to read the book. It will be interesting to read the similarities/differences between both.

After looking into it, I might be able to get in done with school in a year. :) Let me know what you think of the movie.

It still stings that I lost my job, but it's been nice being home to work on things I've been putting off.
