So it's been two weeks since I lost my job. I applied for two jobs at one place but haven't heard anything back. Then I got busy with doing stuff for Krista's wedding and helping Michelle with her kids that I haven't had time. Anyways, today I have got to get with the program and get on it. Today I'm going to register to vote or change my voter registration really since I'm registered but in another county. Anyways, that's what I've got to do.

Well, I lost my job on monday. I kind of figured it was coming, but you still don't want it to happen. Anyways, so now I have to look for a new job. I hate this part. I hate looking and interviewing and all that. I know I need to trust God. So please pray for me in my search and that I will make the right decision.

So lately I've just been feeling a little down. I really have no idea where my life is headed. I guess being around all these people getting married and going to all these shower, just shows me how I'm not anywhere where I thought I would be. Part of me just wishes I could fast forward a few years to get them all over with, but I have a feeling the cycle will never end. Weddings, babies, weddings, babies....that's how it goes. I'm not happy with my job. I feel it has no purpose or meaning. I don't know what I'm suppose to do anymore. I want a job that I don't dread going to everyday. I just wish God would tell me what to do, but it's like he's not speaking to me or I can't hear him or maybe I'm just missing the answer because it's not something that I want to hear. I can't understand why he would want me to be stuck in a job where I don't do anything. Shouldn't my job have a purpose? The thought of not having a family (I have a family, but I mean a husband a kids) just depresses me. I watch all my friends and I see their happiness (and their struggles). I want to know what it's like to have a baby. I'm sure it's not easy, but it's one of those experiences in life that I really want to experience. I know I have a lot of my life ahead of me. I'm only 26. Over half my life has been spent in school. How are you suppose to meet anyone when all the guys are married or not a Christian? The few that are Christians, there just seems to be a personality clash there. I don't know. I'm tired of waiting, waiting for something that might never come and the thought of that just makes me want to cry. I just don't know what to do anymore or what God's plan for my life is...

So I went to David's Bridal and they just told me to pick out another dress and they would exchange. It was very easy. I was so glad that I didn't have to battle with them about it. I really like the dress that I got. This is the link to the dress that I got: http://www.davidsbridal.com/bridesmaids_bycolor_detail.jsp?stid=3321&sid=18607&cfid=10.

So, I'm going to David's Bridal today to try and return this bridesmaid dress that I bought but I no longer need since there isn't going to be a wedding. I called and they said that I could exchange it for something different. Online it says you can't exchange so we'll see. If they don't take it back, I'm tempted to cause a major ruckus. I'm already mad about what happened and I'm stuck with this dress that is nice and all, but I won't ever wear again. What ever happened to customer service? I guess they just want your money and if something happens and you need to return it, their policy is SUCKER, we got your money! If I ever get married, I think I'm going to find a dress from a department store that is nice for my bridesmaids to wear. At least they can take it back if something happens and it probably won't be as expensive either. So we'll see how this goes this afternoon. I'm still irritated about the whole thing.

For those people that know me, they know I've been pretty active in keeping up with what is going on with the election this year. Most know that I can't stand Barack Obama. While he's nice looking and may be a nice person, I feel like he has little experience, can't speak without using um (a good speaker would be able to do this as I learned this in my college public speaking class), and doesn't stand for anything that I agree with. Anyways, my point is this: I don't care what the famous people think. I wish they would keep their opinions to themselves. They can support whatever candidate they want to. However, I don't think they should try and seek out the media about it. For example, if you go to a concert, you aren't going to hear that person's political views, you are going to hear them sing. If you wanted to know what their views were, then you would go to a political event where they were speaking. I hate it that they feel they should try and influence people by talking trash about the current administration or the party that they are not for. I don't pay money to hear your opinion. I pay money to hear you do your job. So just do it! On another note, I hate it when americans go overseas and bash their own country. I don't care if you like our country or not, but you just make us seem weak because we do not present a united front to other countries. I hate it when people from other countries seem to think they know what's best for MY country. This is MY country. Go back to your own if you don't like the way we do things here. I don't care if you like us or not. Keep your opinion to yourself while you are here. I do not want to hear it. You just make me like the person you are talking against more!

Talking to a friend earlier, she said I should start interviewing for a husband. I said maybe I'll place an ad in the paper. If I placed an ad, it would go something like this:
Single, Christian female seeks Single, Christian male for marriage. Please send all resumes to God since he will know if you are lying.
I then realized I would get all the crazies responding and decided maybe I should just trust God on this one.

So Hurricane Hanna is not really a hurricane anymore but a tropical storm which is good for everyone. It looks like it will not directly hit us here in Charleston either. Still, I constantly worry about being stuck on this island and not being able to cross the bridge because they have closed it. I'm looking out the window already and it looks pretty windy. I hope that th ewind doesn't pick up too much between now and when I have to leave. I tend to plan for the worst and hope for the best. If people are like, it's not going to be that bad, I want to yell at them, how do YOU KNOW that? You don't! Anyways, only a few hours left here at work and then I will cross the bridge back to the mainland (if you want to call it that). Hopefully it won't be really windy when I have to drive across it.

Ok, the people I work with are so lazy sometimes. The printer was beeping like it does when it needs paper or toner. Well, instead of fixing it, they just continue to let it beep. I got tired of always changing it especially since it's not my job anymore. They are just too lazy to change it and so they complain about it instead. So anyways, I showed someone how to change it today and then a few minutes later, someone comes up to me and says did you fix the machine? and I said, someone else and I did and he says thanks. I tell him, anyone could have fixed it. Lazy people! Instead of listening to it beep and complaining about it, why don't YOU fix it! Simple solution!
