Hello

on September 4, 2010 - 10:58am

Weather: Clouds, no rain. Breezy. I visited the gardens today and found them to be very bountiful with beans, corn, squash, peas, artichokes, apples, raspberries, pears, almost too many to remember. I have the house to myself until tomrrow. I was going to make cookies but instead I'll go running. There is this person I've seen twice now while I was on a jog and he looks so much like a particular celebrity that the second time I saw him I wanted to stop him and tell him so. It's not Josh Groban he resembles in case you were wondering. The first time I saw him I didn't have my contacts in. I'm going back to school in January. I think I want to be a librarian. I need to change the songs on my ipod, maybe I'll do that today. Don't really know.

Chat Room!!

on July 22, 2010 - 10:11pm

I did not know there was a chat room on FOJG! I remember making a silly poll about it when I joined, and I haven't been around lately, and ta-da!--now we have one! Yay!

Decisions, Decisions

on July 20, 2010 - 10:04pm

I had this plan. For once I had a plan. Most of the time I flit about aimlessly from one thing to the next in life. I let things fall into my lap and I just think "whatever, I'll do this". After years of working as a nanny, I was going to go back to school in the fall and finish my degree. I sought out an academic advisor at school and took one of those interests tests to help me decide in which direction to go.

Then one day someone came about with this proposition that I take a job as a nanny across the country. All this time I've been saying I need a break from kids I want to go back to school. But there is great appeal in this job being that it's on the East Coast, somewhere I've never been, the pay would be better than what I make now and I'd have a set schedule, weekends off. Problem is my other families that I currently work for are still unaware that I'm considering taking this job. I want to be sure about it, so I'm meeting the family one more time at their home. But it's taking longer than I expected to set up a time to meet them.

South Pacific

on February 8, 2010 - 1:18am

Hi Everyone,

Yesterday I saw South Pacific, and I LOVED it! There's nothing like live theater. I wish I could see it again and again. I enjoyed going into the city and just being in the theater is an experience because it's so grand. The architecture is oriental in design, it's such a cool place. I sat in my seat and thought about all the people who must have sat there in the past. When the overture started I just sat back and closed my eyes (and tried to ignore all of the people who were talking) and let myself be transported.

I had a great seat, very near the stage, the only problem was there was a man sitting directly in front of me who's head was gigantic and it really blocked my view. My mom was nice enough to switch with me at intermission.

The show: I grew up with this musical, listening to the soundtrack and watching the movie. I'm always impressed with the actors and the amount of work everyone in the cast and crew has to put into a show. We went to the matinee, and the cast has something like an hour two break and then they perform again in the evening!
