Been a lackluster year so far, I'll tell you that.
I got fired from my job in January. I'd had enough abuse from this patient's relative and talked back to her. After being suspended from work for 3 days I was fired on Friday Jan 22nd. Ugh, despite the abuse, I was really devastated. After all, the location was great, the people I worked with were nice, the hours & pay were good..
But I have to admit, my folks were so supportive. Apparently for the two weeks prior to being fired, my mom had noticed a real change in my mood and not for the better. After 7, almost 8 years, I suppose it was time to leave. Plus in 2007 we were purchased by a bigger company and the changes were not for the better.
So now I'm on unemployment and actively looking for a job. Go me!
But the extra time has allowed me to de-stress...or as much as I can while worrying about getting a job. I've become quite addicted to twitter. Rotf, it's funny I've gone from chat rooms to IMs to LJ to facebook to twitter. I even have a 'professional' blog that I started after being challenged by a friend of mine.
But I adore twitter, mainly because of the contact it allows you with celebrities. Or in my case, wrestlers. Mainly the women, and they're really good to their fans. In my case, I've sent messages to & received replies from the following:
Mickie James (as detailed in my last post when I got published on diva-dirt.com)
Melina (a TON! She is SO freakin' friendly and sweet and kind, she's become a real inspiration to me!)
Savannah aka Angela Fong (I actually met her when SD/ECW came to Louisville in Jan. I got a pic with her after the show and asked her why wasn't she wrestling in the WWE. She said that this was something new for her and we'd see what the future held. I complimented her on her wrestling because her stuff in FCW is fantastic.)
*cough*..I actually have them saved to a Word document on my computer, all the tweets I've gotten from them. It's just really special to me that however busy they are, they take the time to correspond with the fans. Melina in particular, her fans have gotten to know her really well due to the WWE Raw chat each Monday and twitter.
So I'm a Twitterholic. XD If you want to find me on there, I'm JenniferL134.
Also in September, I'm going to my first SHIMMER tapings!! Tickets go on sale tomorrow and whether or not I have a job in Sept, I'm there. I can't wait, I've become addicted. I now have Volumes 1 - 6, and 13 - 28. Still trying to locate the elusive 7 - 12 (esp 7, it's like trying to mine for gold).
So I'm uber excited about that. Plus ROH is coming to Louisville in July, I may get tickets for that.
Heh it's a little embarrassing but thats been the biggest highlights of the year so far for me. Turned 28 on May 13th, whoo hoo.
Oh, I have been reading a lot more about feminism and educating myself. There's a lot of sexism that I never saw until lately, it's been a real eye-opener how much crap still goes on.
Randomly...Betty White on SNL = freakin' sweet. Best SNL I've ever seen.
^^ This is a link to a recent Conan O'Brien tour show where he had a dance off between him, Stephen Colbert & Jon Stewart. I'm not sure how the world didn't implode from so much awesomeness on one stage.
I'm sickened by this oil spill. The pictures of animals...I can't even look at those, I'll end up crying. But I think it's interesting that normally people who don't want the govt involved in anything private sector are jumping all over the President for not getting involved sooner. WTF? You can't have it both ways! Sigh...
Anyhoo, I'll wrap this up. Good night and good luck!
