**********BREAKING NEWS******** The company called me and left a voicemail about wanting to schedule an interview!! This is the job that was left on the site for over 30 days. I would have to go into an office to work. What a concept! But I would be using my “skills”. I’m calling him back tomorrow. Now onto my regularly scheduled entry…
Update: I have a job interview on Wednesday afternoon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I might go to the Jazz Fest in August. Jazmine Sullivan, Melanie Fiona, Erykah Badu, Elle Varner, Common, and a bunch of other people are going to be there. I should actually leave my house and go, right? It’s $140 for both days. Ugh. I have to look at the lineup and pick the best day. I really want to see Jazmine, Melanie, and Elle. I saw Melanie in concert a few years ago in Virginia Beach. I think she opened for Mary J. Blige and D’Angelo.
I have a break from my months-long period! However, it could be just a break or is the Depo-Provera finally working? Time will tell. I wish I knew for sure so I could sign up for yoga classes.
I might finally get a chance to learn how to use a MacBook. My sister bought herself a new one, and she is giving her old one to my mom. I get to borrow it for 6 weeks to see if I like it. I did consider buying one two weeks ago, but I thought it would take me forever to get used to it, and I needed something I could use NOW.
I’m in love with my new HP laptop. It is so much faster than my last computer because I made sure to get one with Intel. Never buy a Windows computer with AMD. NEVER!!! Anyway, I mostly use it to listen to music, the A Course in Miracles audiobook and to print from time to time. I think we are going to have a long relationship. 🙂 I love that it is small enough to travel with. I love everything about it.
This week I…
Music of the week: Marren Morris, Lorde, Jillette Johnson, Miranda Lambert, Ellie Goulding, Ed Sheeran, Halsey, John Mayer
TV of the week: Big Brother, Grey’s Anatomy, Wimbledon
Movie of the week: none
Books of the week: I finished reading The Residence: Inside the Private World of the White House by Kate Anderson Brower and The Bright Hour: A Memoir of Living and Dying by Nina Riggs. I didn’t like The Bright Hour. I don’t know why it has such great reviews. I guess I just didn’t get it. Parts of it were interesting. I just couldn’t stand the way it was written.
*SPOILERS* I loved The Residence: Inside the Private World of the White House. George W. Bush was the best family to work for. Not surprising. Everyone says he’s nice. Laura Bush too. I read a book about her a while back and have a little respect for her. Nancy Reagan was tough to work for, but Ronald wasn’t that bad. The Clintons were a mess. Chelsea was extremely nice to the staff (minus one incident with the secret service). The Obamas were standoffish (not shocking). And Lyndon Johnson was the worst president to work for.
- A Colony in a Nation by Chris Hayes (not sure I’m going to finish)
- The Blood of Emmit Till by Timothy B. Tyson
- Under the Udala Trees by Chinelo Okparanta
- A Return to Love by Marianne Williamson
Planner update: Plans of the week in my Erin Condren (coming Sunday)
Plans for the Weekend: I’m taking my mom somewhere on Saturday. On Sunday, I’m going to the library to drop off a book, and I might go to Shoney’s. I love their breakfast buffet. 😉 I’m also going to try to finish up my course if I have time to take the final quiz.
I got my LeTote Select box today. I have to make a decision on what I’m keeping. I will probably decide tonight. I’m doing a full entry on it within the next 5 days.
Thanks for reading. Have a great weekend!
