I’m sorry I’ve been M.I.A. on the blog for a couple of weeks, it’s been hectic here in Oracle-land dealing with my sister’s wedding, school applications, and program and invitation designs. Not only that, I’ve been teaching myself graphic design from some PSDtuts.com. I’m also trying to wait for my Sub-check to come in for me to buy a new book for my Paranormal Library series. I have one I’ve been reading, but it’s just way too much information in a small package that I already know, so its been agonizing, but a great read nonetheless. Also, I may post a complementary review on one of the books I have already written about.
Anyway, to pass the time before I post the last of my images from my 30 Photography Challenge and A Paranormal Library, I am going to post some of the most inspiring things I have found over the internet with LINKS!!!
Check out this Cosmopolitan, Las Vegas commercial, every time it comes on, I start dancing!!!
Isn’t that song is amazing!?! Then check out Parov Stelar’s website and watch this awesome video..
That is it for me, till next time!!!

Sorry for the many month delay on my blog, I’ve been very busy with two-jobs, a boyfriend that needs attention, and an increasing depression that won’t go away. So I’ve decided that I need to be constructive, and get my little ass in gear!
I hope everyone has had a good New Year! What are some of your resolutions for this year!

My sis, the Boyfriend and I went vintage shopping in the Heights down here in Houston on Wednesday. And while I usually am able to go into a vintage store and find things that interest me, I always seem to get distracted by the very unusual things these stores sell. See, I tend to gravitate towards creepy things when I go Vintage Shopping, and I go into every antique store and Vintage dress shop I can find. What I found on Wednesday was beyond creepy, I had to take a picture of them.
Before I start, the boyfriend and I recently started our “Horror Movie Month” with this really strange flick called The Dolls on Netflix. The storyline starts with a recently married Divorcee, his new wife, and daughter from a previous marriage, were all caught in a storm and had to take shelter in a creepy old victorian (like every movie that starts like this), where an old doll maker and his wife were preparing for dinner. After giving the daughter, who happens to have an overactive imagination (probably from the fact that the father is an asshole to her), a doll, the Dollmaker then allows a Gentleman and two girls (80’s punk rockers) to stay the night along with the troubled family. Well, it turns out that the dolls that are everywhere in the Dollmaker’s house are alive and only the girl and the gentelman are the ones who are not effected by the creepy dolls.
What does this have to do with my vintage shopping on Wednesday? Well, I came across some really creepy dolls at this one place that I just HAD to take a picture.

A Poem I Texted to the Boyfriend after a severe emotional breakdown a couple days ago. Sometimes writing helps sorts out my feelings, and gives me clarity in a time of need. The following was a free write in class the other day and it just seemed to make alot of sense.
I don’t feel like there is a place for me in this world.
But no answers come.
The choice is mine,
But sometimes I can’t choose because of too many words in my head.
Telling me I can’t
Or they won’t hire,
Or you’re worthless.
Pain is all around me,
And I can’t shake it off.
Jest words sting.
And the Shields I used to have don’t work.
Is there going to be a light at the end of the dark tunnel?
Or am I going to travel life in the Darkness Labyrinth.
No way out.
Full of pain.

I was hoping that I would post some amazing summer vacation photos and such, but time got away from me. I lost my teaching position to cut backs in the Texas State Government, spent all summer trying to obtain a position, and ended up working back at Hobby Lobby in the Framing Department, and re-applied as a Substitute Teacher in the Cypress-Fairbanks School District, and I’ll work part-time at night at Hobby Lobby to pay off a car I had purchased, because my trustworthy 1995 Honda Odyssey Van went to see St. Peterbuilt at the pearly garage gates in the sky. I ended up purchasing a 2004 Toyota Matrix, and I couldn’t be happier with it. It doesn’t need much work, but I am planning on doing some major engine and exterior remodeling on the car very soon (it’s so great to be dating a mechanic!!).
My trip to Michigan was amazing, and I’ll plan on doing a post about that now that I’ll have some down time during classes to work on stuff like that. I’ll talk about some amazing vintage stores, great foods, and of course my friends. I’ll do this while watching the students do their busy work. Yes, it sounds a bit lazy, but for the most part I’ll be subbing at my old school, and those kids’ listen to me…I hope….
Wedding 2012 Countdown begins as the school year starts, my sister’s wedding is in May, and we’re now starting the final countdown for floral arrangements, dresses, shoes, weight-loss, hair (if I have any left), dates, and surprise wedding festivities the boy and I are arranging with some friends of ours. I’m on keyboards, The boy on lead guitar, our friend Jimmy on bass, and we still need a rhythm guitarist and a drummer, if you live in the Jersey Village area of Houston, Texas, and can play either instrument, just let me know. You have to have an interest in all different types of music from Tejano to Indie Rock, we’re going to rock their socks off! It’s a surprise, so don’t tell anyone! I’ll keep you posted on the wedding details, the plans, the dresses, the weight-loss, the song list for surprise concert and any other tidbits of fun wedding related activities. If all goes well, we may become a wedding band and do everything from Tex-Mex weddings to same-sex weddings to Klingon weddings.
I spent all summer reading and listening to Podcasts. I’m currently addicted to Jim Harold’s Paranormal Podcast, Campfire, Paranormal Report, and Weird News Radio. I’m trying to save up for his Paranormal Plus club for the 79.95 price for a whole year…I hope I can get it.
Anyway, check him out, and while listening to his podcasts, he has authors and such come up and give a premise on their books. From there, I’ve been stock piling numerous amounts of books that I have found, and I’ve been making my own paranormal reference library picking authors I like from the suggestions on the Paranormal Podcast, and either purchasing them at Half Price Books, or on my Nook, depending on the price of course! In any case, Every Friday, I’ll pick one of these books to do a post on, and give my review of them, and others that I have found on my own.
Other podcasts I like are
Coast to Coast – there are some art bell classics updated on ITunes for free, other than that you do have to pay.
That’s the most of this update I’ll be doing, I’ll start posting everyday while I”m subbing, letting you guys know how it feels to go back to substitute teaching, the job search, everything that can possibly be me.
Dreamers, what are your back to school plans?
