A book meme and more waitin'…

Teeni posted a book meme I thought was fun, I have done it before but it still amuses me and it takes my mind off all the job stuff that has really begun to wear on me. Here are the rules for the book meme: Step One – pull out a book on the book shelf. Step Two – go to page 123. Step Three – read and write out the 5th sentence. Step Four – tag 5 more people. I am currently reading Snow Blind by P.J. Tracy...

More anticipation….

Lets see I had Monday off from teaching for memorial day but had to show the house to a bunch of inspectors. I teach my class tomorrow and will perform with my students Wednesday night in a hip-hop routine that is a bit out of my comfort zone. N also leaves for Evansville Wednesday so it is a very exciting day for us. He will keep me posted on the progress of his interview but I'll also be leaving for California with my students on Thursday so I'll be on the road too! We have some packing and loose end tyeing to do in the next few days! I can't wait to have his interview over and done with so we can have some info on the status of our future, the...

Reflections on past present and future.

Do you reflect on your life journey? Do you see how one thing leads you to another, does it help you to face the future and the present? Looking back and reflecting upon the journey is something I tend to do. It gives me perspective on the current events when I look back to see how we got here. I always try to see the positive side of things when I reflect and I seldom have regrets about things. I tend to look back and reflect after the accomplishments in life, it comforts me and gives me the strength to face what is in the future. N got the official "we want to fly you out here for an interview" communication yesterday after applying to a number of different places. He has...

The job search continues… Evansville, IN?

We just got a bite from a station in Evansville Indiana. We are excited about the housing prices/ the offered pay and the station is excited about N's skills and talent after seeing his resume tape. After chatting with the guy on the phone today N decided to go on to the next step with this station! The news director is meeting with his bosses to discuss the possibility of hiring N, if everyone agrees that he is a good match he will probably head out there for a face to face interview. Keep you fingers crossed for us and think good thoughts! This is a really promising opportunity for us. The station in Oregon never followed up on N's calls/ emails. They had a phone interview scheduled for last week, N...

Where do I start?

Okay, lets see- Saturday my students have their last/ championship performance and we are all so excited! Things will become calmer and more low key after this highly competitive date has passed. I am very peased with their show and have confidence that they are going to rock! In other news I am on day 2 of counting calories and things are still the same weight wise. I am even trying to limit the amount of dancing I do in class so that my chances of keeping some of the calories. Oh, my male finch got his head stuck in the bottom grate of his cage this morning. He was trying to get something down there, put his head through the bars and then got it stuck. He was making all sorts...

Persistence often pays off..

This is a lesson that is very apparent in my file right now. I try to teach my students that perseverance and persistence will lead you to great things. Often times we fell the urge to give up right before we are about to experience success. Those who succeed are often those who kept trying after all the others had quit. This idea is also proving to be true with the ole job search N has embarked upon. Yesterday after putting his resume tape online and applying to all the places he could he got a bite! Tri-Cities, Washington has scheduled a phone interview for Saturday with him. Yay. So, if you feel like your efforts are pointless and that you should just throw in the towel and give up remember that...

We already got a few bites on the job search!

Today several employers responded to N after he sent out several applications yesterday. This is a great sign for the job search but it also brings up a new technical challenge for me! One of the employers asked if he had some online footage they could take a look at, sort of a resume tape. Normally he would be sending out VHS tapes to stations that showcase his past experience but in this day and age of technological advancements it would be handy and obvious to be able to get the video to employers digitally right? This is something I am researching right now and trying to figure out how to make it happen. We want to have his resume tape/ video on his personal site and we don't want to use...

The job search begins!

The resume tape is just a bout done, there are about 4 months left on his contract and the job search is under way! Job searching can be a tedious and stressful time for anyone. You sift through the possibilities, talk yourself out of the ones you feel are unachievable and then you pursue the ones you feel best suited for. Eventually you end up with another less than fulfilling job somewhere else but is it the job for you? The worst thing you can do is sell yourself short when job searching. This is something N and I learned first hand a few years back. It's natural to not want to feel rejected so your tendency is to not be willing to put yourself out there when you aren't sure you...

Learning to attract what you want….

“The THOUGHTS we choose to think are the tools we use to paint the canvas of our lives.” - Louise Hay So much of life is a self fulfilling prophecy. We can very easily become products of our environment if we allow it. This is a very difficult concept for people to understand and it is even harder for those that have had trauma in their lives. It is so easy to believe that bad things are bound to happen to you especially when that is all you have experienced up to this point. but think about it, you were expecting bad things to happen right? Then they did and you proved yourself right which in turn solidified your belief in the notion that bad things are bound to happen to you...

Destiny and the journey of life- everything happens for a reason.

Control is an illusion that we all struggle with. Do you believe you have control over your life? What does it mean to control your life? Can you control death and various other life changing events? Can you control the direction your life is headed? Your answers to these questions make you the person you are. When life-changing events take place many of us begin to analyze our lives and the steps we have taken to get to where we are. People ask "why me?" or "what could I have done differentially?". When we loose someone close to us we wonder why and we often do not understand the loss. Some will become angry or resentful others will learn and grow from the experience. I strongly believe that we are presented with...
