What a week this has been. I'm now a few weeks into this semester and I have to say...I look forward to my very last day of school. I've mentally and physically clocked out. My sequential imaging class is nothing like I thought it was going to be. Basically it sucks. On a better note my production class is better than it was the last time I took and dropped it LOL.

I had a heart-to-heart with God about my situation and how I felt about it. When I woke up I felt different, almost like a new person. I've grown pretty angry and fustrated about my situation and blamed it on God. After a rather long and angry prayer session I went to sleep to awaken unburdened, no longer angry or bitter. To say I feel better is an understatement.

After my prayer session I got an email notification about a job that I applied to last month. I've scheduled the interview for Febraury 17th :). FINALLY!!! I don't think it was a coincidence. He definately deserves praise for this :)

In addition to getting new eyeglasses I went shoe shopping. No, I didn't get gazilion new designer pumps that I don't need. I got super cheap shoes that were on sale and/or clearance. Basically the shoes I have now are ready for the landfill. I also had to get very expensive refills for my Copic markers.

On Thursday I got rid of my remaining unwanted marker stock. I was able to sell the under performing Blick Studio Markers on eBay, while I was able to sell my three Prismacolor markers on Craigslist. Never thought they would sell on Craigslist, but it happened. At first when the buyer wanted to meet at a Walgreens between Trautwein (I kept wanting to call this street TWAT-wayne) and Van Buren, I thought that was waaay outta the way for me to pocket $6. After some thinking I decided why not, haven't been in that area for a good two years. Eh. Nothing has changed from what my last memory of the place was. I didn't feel compelled to cruise around further. After the transaction, my sister and I just ventured into Walgreens for a bit to look around for sales, bought something and left.

Woodcrest/Orange Crest is a nice and quiet suburban area, well minus the less-than-desirable older parts. I don't know when this happened, but I find the thought of living in a newer middle-class suburbanite neighborhood to be...nauseating. I mean it's just bland, boring mundanity full of track-homes with overly landscaped yards located near equally boring suburbanite shopping centers. Now I'm not just saying that because I've never lived in those types of areas, I grew-up in suburbia galore in a nice track-home, with an overly landscaped yard surrounded by boring predicable shopping centers. After living in a decent (not great) urban setting for most of my adult life, I must say I do like the excitement and diversity of life that an urban setting offers. Sure I could do without the traffic, the ghetto idiots and the unpleasant concrete blight that goes with the territory, but I have to admit, it's not terrible.

With that being said, my ideal place would be between an urban and suburban area. Where car traffic is manageable (lots of parking) and cultural diversity is prominent. Where the homes are as diverse as the people who live there and spaced enough out to insure privacy. Does such a place even exists? Perhaps, but right now I have to focus on affordability and location. While the places I've been looking at are not my ideal place, they are affordable and decent. Some actually have an unique charm to them. I'm looking to stay in the Riverside/Arlington area for at least one more year. Considering I'm the only one in my immediate family who has a car and drives, it would be hard for them if I decide to move far away. It would be more convenient for me to move to Long Beach, BUT I don't feel it's the right time right now.

Copic markers wins by a landslide.

That is all.

I got a total of six new Copic markers! Here are the colors:


I only have two with me at the moment, while the other four are still in transit. I bought four online, while I bought two at my local Aaron Brother's store. I can't wait to test drive them all!
