Troubled times ahead

Well folks, it's happened, again: I'm going to be jobless for the 3rd time since I moved to Texas. >.< My seasonal work for Tuxedo Junction is almost over and after next week I doubt I'll have any hours at work. Sooooo, guess what that means: job hunting...again!

On the bright side, I managed to get my roommate in at Tuxedo Junction a while back and she's now Assistant Manager, so she's making a hell of a lot more than me right now, which is a good thing since I've not been able to pay rent for a while now...

Anyway, I'll try and make more positive blogs soon, but for now if you have ANY leads on a good paying job near Arlington, Texas, please, let me know ASAP! It'd have to be something where I can make like $400+ a month, minimum.

A Storm Brings New Prospects on the Wind

Ignore the "fancy" title guys. lol. Basically, there was a big storm last night and I got to just stare out a the lightning for a while. It's quite beautiful. Also spent the day talking with a friend of mine from back when I was at college at TTU in TN. She's coming down to Texas to Arlington of all places to see an online boyfriend of hers and I convinced her to pick up some things from my house before heading down here to hang with me. ^^ So, I'm going to be getting a nice care package from home thanks to her and a nice refreshing blast from the past with her.

I should be getting some new kitchen supplies (we needed some pizza pans and utensils), a box of my antique cameras (I'm going to play around with them a bit, clean 'e up, and maybe try and sell them down here at one of the camera stores), some board games (that hopefully my roommates will play with me like: Risk, Monopoly, and Life), some new business clothes (I've been forced to wear the same 3 dress shirts and 1 tie I own this whole time at my job and it's tough to keep them clean when you can't afford laundry sometimes >.< ), and, most importantly, some funds!

I did try something last night while my roommates were inside cooking up 3am hamburgers. (What? We're not weird. lol) I stepped outside on the balcony with the storm still on the horizon, but the rain having ended, watching the lightning flashes in the distance and listening to the sound of a freight train whilst the cool night's wind blew over my face. It was very calming and it reminded me of home when I closed my eyes. Cool nights in Tennessee with a breeze blowing over my face listening to the sound of a distant train rumbling through town at night. I miss that. I guess the sound of a train horn is what brings me back home. *shrugs*

I think the most important thing that I discovered last night, though, were two MLP:FiM fan videos while I was bored and killing time on youtube. Now, I admit, I am a brony and have watched every episode. These two fan videos were just as good, if not better, than some of the latest episodes for the series, though, and that is what really got my attention!

The first one is my favorite and it brought me to tears guys! It tugs on your heartstrings but for the right reasons! It's a very moving story that I could see being a straight to video Christmas special in the past. Yes, it does with winter themes and, yes, it is becoming summer, but really, just watch it! I present to you: Snowdrop:

The second one is good, but not as good, IMO, as Snowdrop. However, it is a needed change of pace and is meant to make you laugh not cry. ;-) It'd basically a fan crossover episode involving many people's favorite cartoons of years past. (tries not to sound old) I present to you: Double Rainboom:

To Boldly Go?

Okay, so I don't know how many people know about the Mars One program ( but I found out about it myself yesterday. To be honest, I've been thinking about it non-stop since then. When I was a kid, I wanted nothing more than to be an astronaut, but my dreams were crushed when my mom said that since I had asthma as a kid that I'd never be accepted. But now here's another chance! A chance to leave Earth behind and colonize Mars as some of the first pioneers of the planet! That would be a dream come true for me! However, it's a very selective process to get accepted into one of the 4 slots available to anyone on the planet. What could possibly set me apart and get me noticed?

That First Step

Well, this is my first time using Google+, let alone working a blog. This is going to be a learning experience for myself. I want to try and stay in touch with people more and, possibly, get to know my fans better. I will be using this blog to give announcements of future art plans or to see what people think of certain ideas. Of course this does not mean that I am abandoning Furaffinity or DeviantArt, merely that I am dissatisfied with the limited responses I receive there.

Now, this blog will also serve a secondary purpose as a journal of sorts for myself. I've attempted to write a journal in the past but never made it past a few days, so I'm hoping that with a blog I'll fare better. ^^; Anyway, what that means is that you'll get more insight into my daily life, hobbies, interests, and so forth. Of course with the good and interesting posts will come the mundane and bitch-filled posts. So fair warning there may be rants in the future.

So, I suppose the first thing I should do with this new blog is get some people following me otherwise it's just me talking to myself... -_-; ...again. Also, I'd like to kick this blog off with a round of Q&As. These can be directed at myself or my fursona, Tailswisher (or any of my other characters for that matter) and I will do my best to answer these to the best of my ability. ;-)

If you're not up for asking any questions, you can also suggest topics for me to talk about here on this blog. I'll take any suggestions as long as it's not political or religious in nature. That's two subjects I'd rather NEVER get involved in. >.<

Anyway, here's to a successful endeavor! I hope you guys enjoy and that I can entertain you somewhat while trying to get to know you all better. ^^
