you're invited to a PITY PARTY

I didn't update at all on the 6th. There must be something wrong with me.

Atleast we don't have to deal with those 31-a-day things anymore. Yay for having a (semi) life.

After the initial splash back into the Tallahassee waters, I feel like my friends are getting bored of me. The four of us (Indira, Sara, Seana, myself) used to have some sort of stronger glue, that's now gone. Others of my friends (Sabrina and Sly) work all the time, it seems. I don't even have Deborah to hang out with. She's always at camp, out at a friends house, or this week, out of town. Both my mother and my sister (and my sister's friend) went to my mom's conference in Orlando, they'll be back Thursday. I have other friends that are mainly now "online" friends -- whether from high school or old acquaintences-- but transitioning from online to in-person doesn't always work out the way you'd expect.

What I need is an activity where I can meet more people. I mean, Americorps will provide that for me. A job would provide that for me. But since Americorps is pissing me off by making me wait so much, and I can't get a job unless I know whats happening with AC (my new abbreviation)... it's just really frustrating. All I do is clean, and get so much dust up my nose.

Speaking of, I'm on three allergy medicines now. Zyrtec, Nasonex, and then just OTC Benadryl. Taking these three is the only way I won't absolutely die. And I still feel yucky most of the time. This has been going on for a week or so. Perhaps I should regard the fact that it might actually be something serious that is NOT allergies.

Okay the pity party is over.

I finished The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd yesterday. It was not really what I expected, but it was still pretty good. I'm trying very hard not to give away the plot. You read it. You can tell by the fact that I actually finished it that it wasn't superb and on the top of the list but yeah... a good read.

Today I think I will work on my room.

poor, poor, poor Melissa
what about FSU hillel (their TAG group sounds interesting? http://www.hillelatfsu.org/groups/tag), or a book club, or some sort of other interest club going on in Tallahassee? Audition for a play? go to fsu and look at the bulletin boards for fun events? music lessons? And go to a doctor about the allergies - that is a lot of medicine to have to be on at once!! Maybe an allergist could help you somehow. and/or get mom and dad to get an indoor air pollution specialist to come to the house, as long as they are doing all these upgrades.

Re: poor, poor, poor Melissa
The problem with getting involved in something is that I don't know whats going on with Americorps. I want that to start so I can see what my schedule is like before I commit to anythign.

It seems silly to just sit at home and twiddle your thumbs for a month or two while you wait for the Americorps people to get their act together. Better to give stuff a try, and maybe your hours at AC will let you keep going with it. If not, you haven't lost anything.

Given how wobbly AC has been on the paperwork and your start date, I'd say go ahead and get temp work; just let them know that you might have to leave soon.

Re: poor, poor, poor Melissa
tried to get 'Temp Work'. Adecco is saying "no hiring unless you have a years secretarial experience"

as for twiddling my thumbs, are you KIDDING ME?

I've been working my butt off cleaning and moving and dusting and restoring and running the house

Re: poor, poor, poor Melissa
Ok, ok, apologies for implying you weren't doing cleaning work.

I find similar things happening when I go back home... it's like everyone got a whole other life when you were gone or something.

Much like pineapples, I am hardcore.
