I've seen this on a few other blogs, so although I'm not 'tagged' I'm taking these prompts as a post idea

1. BLT or PB&J?
I like both but prefer PB&J (with coffee!)

2. If you had to choose, would you give up your home Internet access or cable TV?
Since I can use the internet at work or at libraries if absolutely necessary, I'd give up internet at home if I had to choose.

3. Do believe in astrology?
I wouldn't say believe, but I'll read my horoscope in magazines and stuff.

4. What is the last CD or iTunes single you purchased?
hmmm I don't have my iPod with me so I can't check for sure what single song, but I do recall the last whole album I bought was M.I.A.'s new one, right when it came out(July I think) and actually I have yet to listen to the whole thing

5. If you could trade bodies with one celebrity, who would you choose?
Maybe Rachel McAdams b/c BF thinks she's super hott, (I guess I agree a little) How tall is she though? If I trade bodies I'd want to be shorter than I currently am

6. How many pairs of shoes are in your closet?
good question, I'd guess over 30

7. Do you make your bed every day?
No, I'm always running late

Another Set:

Starting a new Journey

So now that I'm done with my accounting class and have completed all the requirements for a certificate in Business Management, I've decided to start a new endeavor.

FYI, I'm Catholic. I went to Catholic school from Pre-School to High School. I'm not super duper devout in the sense that I go to mass every single week, but I have never "lost my faith". Most catholic kids (I think) get baptized as babies, do their first communion around the 2nd grade and get confirmed in high school.

I'll be 29 soon and have not yet been confirmed, but I went to my first confirmation class yesterday. It was a bit odd. As much as I love God and Mary, the holy spirit, and the saints... Its very hard (for me) to embody the teachings of the church in the world we live in. I felt guilty sitting there hearing about what you are supposed to do knowing that hours earlier when a pregnant woman asked me for money on the street I lied to her and said I didn't have any. This is Los Angeles, and if I gave money to every person who asked for it, I'd then be the one panhandling.

Yesterday after class, I was in a bad mood, and unsure if I even really wanted to go through with it. Today I feel a little better. Although "the church" may not agree, I think God is understanding of my position. I am not a bad person. I may not be as good a person as I should be, but I am definitely not a bad person. I'm jaded. I'm disappointed by alot of things in this world. And I think to myself, why should I help others who have made bad decisions? what's in it for me? who bothers to help me?
I do alot for my loved ones, friends and family and for charity. But random strangers? I'm sorry but I have too much mistrust.

I'm good to my loved ones, and very supportive in times of need. This journey may have me feeling conflicted at certain points but I think it is the right thing for me. I know at the very least, it will make my mom happy and will then allow me to be married in the church when my time comes.

Let's try this again...

So I started blogging a while back and then wasn't so pleased with my rants... Initially I thought it would be good to vent by writing because some of my feelings I can't really share with people I know as they'll easily be misinterpreted and/or be taken as offensive... I thought the blogosphere would be safe since nobody I know or nobody at all really seems to actually read my stuff. But you never know, so I deleted one post in particular and hadn't really written anything in 6 months.
Anyway I have kept reading other blogs and figured I'd give this another shot.

So its September 1st and I'm feeling pretty hopeful about the next few months and especially about next year. I'm finally feeling like my relationship is moving forward. I never thought I would be the type to give a dude the ultimatum, but I kinda did. So I'm not engaged yet, and actually I'm not so concerned with being engaged at all. But We do have plans to move in together no later than January, and probably getting married about 6 months later. It will be difficult financially since he does not currently have a job, and I don't make very much. But it will be oh so worth it. I'm happier with the simple thought of having that to look forward to. We currently both live at home but when we get time alone its awesome! I am absolutely un-domestic but I will learn and do my best (luckily he isn't picky about what he eats).

In other news, today I will be taking my final for an online accounting class I'm currently enrolled in. This is the last in a series of classes that I've been taking for the sake of obtaining a 'certificate' in Business Management. I hope this will do me some good in eventually getting a better job. I like my job, but I think I can do better. It would be nice to stay in the same company but be challenged, and make more money of course. These days I'm glad to have a job at all. So I will wait my turn for bigger and better things.

I'm looking forward to the long weekend, reading for leisure, watching movies, taking walks with my doggie, having some nice meals and cuddling.
