How it starts

So other than Dennis Kucinich getting no delegates in Iowa, which most everyone already knows about, I guess I need to update everyone on the events of the past few days. I just got off the phone with a friend to realize that, with one exception, 2008 is starting off very well. When I talked to my bishop today about my financial situation, the first thing he said was, "You look a lot healthier!" Thank you Isotonix Custom Cocktail! :-)

So, what have the first few days of 2008 brought? Well, I'm moving along slowly with the Market America business, and I'm realizing that I'm not spending as much time on it as I could be or should be, particularly since I'm not working right now. And then every day I beat myself up over it. Well, that's kind of a waste. But now I'm still not working, and it's the first full week of 2008, so I'm going to do it. Along with mailing my voter registration tomorrow. :-)

Yes, I think I'll be able to barely squeak in my voter registration. Turns out I don't need to have it in 30 days prior because they have a convenient little box where you can check affirming that you have lived in your present location at least 30 days prior to the election(which I have) so I don't have to prove anything. Yay! Now I just need to hope they get it in time to put my name on the books and get my registration card to me in the mail. ;-) And then, I can vote for Dennis Kucinich to be the 44th President of the United States.

This past week, I finally met up with someone I had met on Facebook who is a self-described trance addict, and I got to trance her over the phone. And then, as if completely randomly, she was supposed to meet a friend of hers in the city, and her friend stood her up, so she called me up to meet me in person. I got to set off her trigger a few times in person, and it was so cool watching her face go blank instantly as soon as I said her trigger. By the end of the afternoon, she couldn't even look at me because she would slip under just looking into my eyes. But she had fun, and so did I. :-) We're also going to be collaborating on video games(she's an artist and an illustration student) and stories(she writes, too).

Katya and I have been talking a lot, and the more and more we talk, the more I think she really likes me. She talks about things as if we were to be together, and I'm still not sure if it's hypothetical. She said she wants to visit me in April. We'll find out. :-)

And it looks like I'll be starting a couple more video game projects. I met up with a guy that I got a link from on Craig's List for a guy who's looking for team members for his video game projects, and I figured that even though I'm leading a team of my own, I can workon other projects and get additional experience. I've been talking with my mom and my aunt about starting my studies at the Game Institute in programming, and they seem rather supportive. My aunt is wondering if there are other places I can learn C++, which I can't blame her for since the Game Institute is an unknown factor to her compared to other institutes she's heard of through her professional experience, although my opinion is that the Game Institute would be a better option since their courses are specifically tailored to game creation. Still, I'm willing to evaluate the other options and compare prices.

The one bad thing about this week was finding that my bank account was overdrawn. Fortunately, we were able to pull my account out of that situation. But it's clear that I've got to shift my financial situation. I'm not having much luck getting work through OfficeTeam, simply because they don't have any to give. I guess I'd better get the Market America thing going, huh? So if you want any isotonic vitamins, custom blended makeup, or weight loss, shoot me an email. :-) Or if you want a website, I can definitely help you with that one. ;-)
