Ugh! I hate studying. I keep falling asleep and I've already had 3 cups of coffee. I'm not supposed to have coffee. Ugh!

Did I Call That or What?!?

America's Best Dance Crew is ... Jabbawockeez!

Heehee. I think I voted like 10 times. I'm such a dork.

**Note: This blog is only supposed to be one entry a day but I couldn't resist.

Case Closed

As an update to my mediation post, we settled my case. I can finally breath a sigh of relief. Closure at last. No more trips to my lawyer's office, no more statements to complete, no more documents to sign. Yippee!!!

Today was the first time I got to see this x-ray. This was taken on Nov. 2, 2005 and the doctors wouldn't let me see it at the time. Now I know why.

I've got my mediation tomorrow. I hope it won't be as exhausting as my deposition because I also have a test for my Psych class to look forward to later on that night.

If all goes well, then we can all come to terms and my case will soon be over. If not, I've got a deposition review, doctor's visit and arbitration to look forward to. Oh, the joys of lawsuits. *Sigh*

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everyone!

I got this text message from my mom this morning and I'd like to share it with all of you:

Easter is the PROMISE that LIFE can rise from DEATH. It is the story of a LOVE that heals and empowers. It is proof that one can always begin again.

I put up a corkboard in my room so I have a place to tack on my ideas as they form. I got the board from my apartment's entry way. I think one of my neighbors who moved out left it behind. It's not stealing, right?

America's Best Dance Crew is...


Well, we don't know that yet but I don't care what everyone else thinks. I think the Jabbas have been consistent throughout the competition and they deserve the title.

Tune in next Thursday to find out if America agrees with me!

Opening a Business in California

I learned something new today. I learned that the State of California is one of the toughest places to start a business in. Too many hurdles!!! I don't know if they are trying to discourage business from opening or if they are just trying to maintain their standards because the paperwork is insane!!! After you form your company, you have to obtain your EIN in order to apply for a Business Tax Certificate, a Seller's permit (if you are intending to sell goods), an Alcohol and Tobacco resale license (if you are intending to sell cigarettes or liquor), and Use Tax (in order to collect and pay sales tax). The stress is enough to scare me from starting a business but I must persist. I must go forward with my plans.

On a completely unrelated topic, I actually made a decision today! Hooray me! I decided on a name, font and everything. Aren't you proud?

Decisions, decisions

Why is it so hard for me to make a decision? I second-guess almost every decision I make. I try to consult everyone I know for even the smallest things (including clothing). In the end, I end up doing what I originally planned anyway. I always find myself changing gears halfway through the process. And it's a little annoying and I've found it to be a drain on resources (time, energy and money).

I think it's one of two things. Either I'm afraid to make a decision because I'm afraid I won't like the outcome or I don't have enough faith in myself to make the right decision. Whatever it is, it needs to be fixed soon. I'm thinking of opening a store and this requires a lot of decision-making. I hope I can figure things out soon.

No Internet, No Phones

Our internet connection at work has been down for almost 3 hours now. Since our phones also run on internet lines, they've been down too. Almost everyone is at a standstill waiting for connection. Scary how everything depends on connectivity.

**Note: Our internet at work was down from noon until about 5:40pm. I used my Blackberry to post this entry but since my Blackberry email is linked to my work email, the entry didn't actually post until a few minutes ago.

New Mommy Syndrome

Two of my best friends are new mommies. One became a mom last year and the other became a mom last January. I'm happy for both of them. They have the cutest babies. However, sometimes it annoys me that they forget that I'm not a mom. I think they forget that I'm single too.

Yesterday, we had lunch and talk came around to Maddy's 1st birthday. First birthdays are always a big deal to new parents and I can understand their enthusiasm. Heck, I'm excited too. I asked my friend what she was planning to do and she said she wanted to start off with a "Mommy and Me" Gymboree Class. I was a little put off by that and I actually asked if I was invited. I'm usually not the most sensitive person around but that was just not cool. It's cool though. Maybe I'll have plans then so I won't have to endure an afternoon with mommies and their babies.

No Meat Fridays

During the Lenten season, most Catholics avoid meat on Fridays. I always forget. Today we decided to have Brazilian churrascaria for lunch. On the way there, I remembered I wasn't supposed to eat meat. And I chose to. I figured I've been eating meat since the beginning of Lenten season, what's another Friday? Not good. To pacify my guilt, I had a vegetarian dinner. It's not enough, but it's so hard to say no to alcatra.

The stress of the new position is setting in. I'm worried that too much is expected of and I won't be able to deliver. I might have to drop a class soon. I'm not a quitter and I hate dropping classes but that might be the only solution. If I want to do well in my new position, I need to dedicate time and energy into it. If I want to do well in my classes, I need to dedicate time and energy to studying. I don't think I have enough time and energy for both. I already bombed my first test. I don't think I can stand to bomb another test let alone let my work fall behind.

I have to make a tough decision and I have to make it quickly. I should consult with my mom.

Good night everyone!

Bad Grade

I've been AWOL for the past few days. I had an exam on Monday and another one on Tuesday. The title says it all. I got a bad grade on Monday's exam. Ugh! I'm so disgusted. I did better with Tuesday's exam but it doesn't help how I feel about the Monday grade.

Shopping Spree to Celebrate

My friend Jenny has been making a list of things I should buy to celebrate my promotion. Although I'm a certified shopaholic, I also have a practical side. My main concerns right now are starting my business and saving up for a house. However, her enthusiasm is infectious. I have found myself looking at all these things I've always wanted but never had the willingness or the ability to purchase. Now that they are within my grasp, it sure is tempting.

I hope all goes well. I'm a little nervous. *Sigh*

I got promoted!!!

Yay! Today I got promoted at work! Yesterday was such a bad day and today was the total opposite. I'm so glad and yet a little apprehensive. The new job is a little bit more demanding. It's a managerial position in a totally different department and I'm a little concerned that I won't be able to pick things up as quickly. I know my boss has faith in me, which is why he offered me the position, but I also don't want to disappoint him.

Our Executive VP already voiced his concerns. He was concerned not because he thinks I'm unqualified for the position but because it's a total departure to what I've been doing for the past four years. And I agree. Although I have background in Economics and Finance, Accounting is a totally different field. I'm pretty smart so I think I'll be able pick things up but I'm not sure it'll be at their pace. Our VP has already offered to help me if I overwhelmed in anyway and I am grateful for that. Again, I just don't want to disappoint. I'll be ordering "Accounting for Dummies" and "Iddiot's Guide to Accounting" soon to supplement my one semester of accounting knowledge.

When the initial apprehension subsides, I think I'll be fine. I just need to really listen and pay attention and take good notes. And then I'll come home and teach myself as much as I can. The rest, I'll leave up to God. Wish me luck!!!

Bad Day

You know that saying, "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned"? Well, if my ex knows what's good for him, he better stay away from me. He pissed me off soooo much this morning that I was turning red and I started shaking. I haven't been that pissed in such a long time that it caught me by surprise. He hasn't seen/felt my wrath yet and it's not going to be pretty so he really just needs to stay away and stop saying sorry because it will do him no good.

I'm not one to be crossed since I hold grudges. It takes a lot to get on my bad side but that's a side of me that no one but a select few get to see. When you get on my bad side, there's absolutely no way you can ever get in my good graces again. So God help him...

Gym Time

I was feeling a little bored today so I decided to hit the gym. I went around mid-afternoon and I was surprised to see a half-empty gym. Maybe people were taking advantage of the sunny day and decided to hit the beach, I don't know. I was glad I went to the gym when I did though. No wait for the cardio machines and I could stay for as long as I wanted on the treadmill without being given the evil eye. I should go to the gym around this time more often.

My afternoon at the gym made me feel a little productive. Not only did I get to burn a few calories, I got to do some reading for school too. Hmmm...I wonder if I should make this a routine?

Girl Scout Cookies

I picked up $112 worth of cookies today, helping my cousin earn a badge along the way. Don't worry, they're not all for me. I only bought thin mints for myself and the rest are for my coworkers.
