Good Afternoon,

It has been quite some time since I had a chance to write a journal here. A combination of work, family, classes and bouts of creativity have kept me very busy. Work and classes have been taking up most of my time lately so alas my creativity has been slacking a bit. I did take a three week course at WWTC for Portrait Photography and I learned a lot, not to mention it was taught by one of my favorite local photographers. The work she does is amazing and has truly been inspirational. She was very helpful with a number of different things and I hope some day I can be half as successful as her.

Well on to other things, I haven't had much chance to write these days but I hope to pick that up soon, sporadic as it is. Sometimes it seems as though I have to drag my muse out kicking and screaming, then bribing her with chocolate. Other times, she can't wait to show me what she has, even going so far as buzzing around in my head until I can put other things aside and focus. Most of the time I like the buzzing depending on how busy I am and writing seems to soothe me no matter how stressed I am or what I am writing whether it be a message to someone or ideas for my seemingly never ending stories.

On a personal front, I had hopes of getting a place closer to work with winter not that far away, a Jeep with over 300,000 miles and the fact that I really don't like having to drive a half hour each way. The apartment I was looking at was over a dance studio and I loved it the moment I saw it despite the creaky stairs. What I didn't love was the price as the security deposit was more than the rent itself and as I only work part time, my budget is rather limited. I was to hear back from the person by the end of this week but it would seem I didn't get the place after all.

There's a chance I might have to transfer to a different town depending on what is available. It's not that I don't like the thought of trying something different, it's that I've only been at the current job for six months and I wanted to try to make a go of it for atleast a year. My family, while well meaning, can at times be very pushy, particularly a couple of them. One of them is insisting I give the new area a try and though I've been digging in my heels, it would seem that their view is winning. There's a few steps I have to do to transfer including seeing if there's positions available for me at the other store and then the waiting game. Part of me wants to know if it will work out and whether I'll enjoy it. The other part of me doesn't want to move and and continue trying to get a place of my own nearer to my current job. The ironic thing is that if I had a chance to move to certain countries with the security of a place to stay and a job, I'd jump at it.

Well I had better stop with my ramblings as I need to do a few things before work, especially some homework and it is due on Tuesday. Wish me luck
