Thank goodness THAT'S over...

Here's my actual conversation with the director of camp inventions:
me: Hey, I got my room cleaned up, vacuumed, tables washed, chairs put away, trash is out, and my stuff to mail back is counted and in the box.  What else do I need to do before I leave?
her: OH!  You're not leaving for quite awhile!  There's lots to do!  (said in a laughing, snotty tone)
(at this point, I look around at everything that's already cleaned, and she's just surrounded by stuff she has to inventory and then send back to the organization.)
me: Ok, what do you need me to do so I'm not just standing around?
her:  (ignores me)
me: (I walk out and put my stuff in my car and then come back in) Ok, so what do I need to do?
her: Is your room cleaned?
m: yes.
h: Is your trash out?
m: Yes.
h: Where's your box of stuff to send back? (keep in mind, it's sitting right in front of her)
m: Right there, all counted.  Missing 2 pairs of goggles.
h: Well go take the signs down...and then I guess you can leave. (this is 20 minutes after I asked her the first time.)

Man, I am so glad to be rid of her!

80's party tonight.  Gonna get some clip in colored hair from Hot Topic before going over and getting ready at Katie's.  Heather has some serious arsenal of hair products that will probably take weeks to wash out of my hair.  (totally worth it!)

I gotta go make my leg warmers!

Tomorrow is my last day of Camp Inventions! (YAY!)
Had to send a kid out of my room.  He is one of the most obnoxious kids I've ever met.  I asked another teacher if she had problems with anyone, and she knew exactly who I was referring to.  Sad. 

Tomorrow is a busy day!  Waxing a friend's chest for the 80's party (he's going as Billy Idol, and drunkenly promised me that I could wax his chest), helping to decorate for that party, then who knows what else!  I've got my outfit: hot pink heels, bracelets, hot pink leopard print tights with fluorescent spots, black tutu, green tank, and bright nails.  I think the hair is going to be the hard part.
I need to find a hair crimper.

I'm going to make a million dollars

...when I invent something that lets you see the fantasy world that people live in.  The people who are completely in denial...I mean, who wouldn't want to see if they're crazy, or if they're just not aware of anything going on.

Taught my first day of camp.  It wasn't too bad, however, the director is a crazy biatch.  She's in a mood all the time, and is completely disorganized.  I felt bad for all the kids and parents who had to deal with her today.

Watched the newest episode of True Blood.  I LOVE Eric.  He is so handsome...and tall...and scary!

It was a good episode tonight, minus the king stuff.
Gotta work out tonight, but I'm totally exhausted after working, then coming home to a super messy kitchen and having to make dinner, start laundry, AND walk the dogs.  UGH.

I have a feeling that this post will turn out grumpy, so I'm just going to end it here.

I couldn't stay away for long.  Let me vent some frustration a bit.

Things I'm tired of:
1. Repeating myself to EVERYONE.
2. Picking up after my husband.
3. Cleaning the kitchen every damn night.
4. Not being heard.
5. When what I say goes in one ear and out the other.

Yeah.  Lately, it doesn't matter what I say, because I'll hear an "OK" (and this is seriously from almost everyone) and then nothing changes at all.
I don't know why I keep trying.

If this is seriously the music that most people are seriously into, I'm really really glad that I'm different.

Saturday, July 24, 2010

Had my interview yesterday, and she seemed to like me a lot.  Hopefully my paperwork will get sent in to HR super quick and I start working soon.  If not, I'll just sub every single day cause that'd pay as much, I think.
Working the camp.  I really don't want to.  I thought it was going to be a lot different than it really was.  The director doesn't seem to have her head screwed on straight and has misinformed me 2 or 3 times as well as not scheduling or running meetings efficiently.  It's very frustrating.  Now, I'm making phone calls that she is supposed to make, but pushed it off on the teachers.

I need to get up to Best Buy.  My computer is still effed up.  The sounds it's making is WAY worse than what it was before.  Probably because they're all asshats.

I painted a picture for my aunt last night.  Not finished yet, I'd like to get a few more details on it before I call it done.

Friday, July 23, 2010

I had this list....

I was totally writing this huge list yesterday of why I was in a grumpy mood and why everything was going wrong...and I left it up for a long time so I could add to it...when I got a phone call.

The lady at the CDC wanted me to come in for an interview (and that's where I just was).
HOPEFULLY, she'll realize how awesome I am and hire me.
So I'm not going to publish my grumpy list...

I'm starting a painting tonight, similar to the ones I did for my mom and myself with the animals.  It's going to be for my aunt, and hopefully the first thing she has to hang in her apartment once she's away from the douche bag. 

I want to go to the movies this weekend and see Scott Pilgrim Saves the World.

 I love how nerdy this movie looks, and I'm sure I'll enjoy it.  Who knows if I'll actually get out to see it though.

A letter to my cheating uncle

You are no longer my "Uncle Mikey".  You threw that title away when you decided to throw your family away.  When you decided to take up with another woman while your family was at home, you also decided to leave behind the last 20+ years of your life and memories.

When you were out spending money on this cheap replacement, did you ever once pause to think about your wife and children at home eating ramen noodles and wearing clothing with holes in them?  Did you stop to think about the amount of things that they have had to give up so that you could have your play things (motorcycles, dogs, 4 wheelers)?  Why is it more important for you to have THINGS when your family wasn't getting taken care of?  When you were buying alcohol for you and this woman, did you feel any guilt?  When you were CHEATING ON YOUR WIFE, did you even think about the repercussions?

No, you didn't, and that's why your choices have landed you in the situation that you're in right now.  You don't have any resemblance of a family left.  You're not close with your own mother or brother, WE were the only family that you had left.  I've known you almost my entire life and loved you so much, and now I don't think I could bring myself to spare you a passing glance.  To me, you're no more than a stranger.  I no longer look up to you, and brag to my friends about how you'd take me to concerts.  No, because those memories are tainted by how you treated my family.   Your children have seen how you treated Mary, and hopefully that doesn't taint their future relationships.  You're a horrible example to them.

I guess we see now why you've been at that concrete plant for so long and are still a lower level position.  I mean, you were up for a promotion, and they looked right over you WHILE you were doing the work!  They must have already known what kind of person you are and that you couldn't handle a higher position.  What kind of person is at a job for as long as you are and can't move up ranks?  That's really sad.  More sad for your family, because they had to deal with the financial burden of you not having a good job while you spent what little money you had on your motorcycles and toys down in the basement...and then more recently, some slutty girl that broke up your marriage.  I know you spent Aunt Mary's inheritance on your stupid toys too, and probably the other woman as well.  Took all of her money (and it is her's, no matter how you look at it.) and spent it.  What a selfish little man you are.  So pathetic that you have to spend your wife's inheritance money because you don't make enough at your own job.  And don't tell me you were taking care of them.  I know the truth.  Most of your money went to YOUR stuff while Aunt Mary stayed at home and raised your children and dealt with all the dogs.  Being a housewife doesn't pay, but it's still a job.
You allowed Drake to go most (if not all) of the winter wearing shorts because he didn't have pants that fit him.  You bring home ingredients to make yourself lunches for work while your children and Aunt Mary are eating ramen noodles.  Can't you see how selfish and ultimately wrong that is?

You are such a little man, you have to trip out on what little power you have.  Everyone has to bow to you because you make the money (and spend it all, especially on loose women it seems...).  Well guess what?  That's not actually how a REAL man behaves.  A real man takes care of his family (and doesn't go out with his loser friends to bars and hook up with other women).  A REAL man accepts his responsibilities and can work through problems (unlike you, who complains that you had to grow up too fast.  WAH.  So do a LOT of people and they don't turn out to be like you).
Stop blaming Aunt Mary for your shortcomings. It is YOUR fault that this has happened.  You had the option to tell her what you were upset or unhappy about, but instead, you were cowardly and just decided to cheat.  Don't blame her for that.  It's all on you.  Take some responsibility.   I guess you would have to be a real man to do that, and you're not.  You're a little boy who always wants more than what he has and lost it all.  Good for you.

What makes me sick now, is thinking about how you took your kids out bowling with your loser friend Keith and left your wife at home on her night off.  Oh sure, you didn't want her there because the low life woman you've been cheating on her with was going to be there.  YOUR KIDS KNOW.  I will NOT let you try and turn them against my aunt.  You are NOTHING.  That is such a disgusting thing to do...bringing your kids around your cheap mistress.  What kind of man are you?    You're a cheap imitation of what a man is.  Leaving your wife home while you go out and flaunt what you're doing is just so low, I don't even have words to express how disgusted I am in you.  It's one thing to go to the gym while she's home (if that's even what you're doing...and even if it is, it's not like it's going to make you more attractive.  You can't change ugly when it comes from the inside.), it's another to go out in a group with the whole family and leave her out.  

You're such an ugly person.  You've lost weight and done things to change your appearance, but you're ugly INSIDE, and that radiates out...and you can't change that.  No matter what you do, no matter how many trashy people you sleep with, you're never going to feel better about yourself because you'll always be an ugly person.  Everyone sees that now too, your entire EX family.  Yes, Mike, your ex family.  No one wants anything to do with you, everyone is just horrified with your decisions and actions.

Your house is a shell of what it used to be because of you.  Your little world is going to shatter when you realize that your whole family is gone and you have nothing left but your homewrecking woman.  Gross.  A woman like that isn't going to stay with you, Mike.  A woman like that LIKES that you're in a relationship with someone else and enjoys the chase and the secrecy.  Your mistress is going to leave you, Mike.  Maybe not right away, but she will.  You'll no longer be some fun thing, she'll realize the kind of "man" you are and wonder why Mary put up with you for so long.  

You have no idea how disgusted I am with you.  The words in this letter don't express the revulsion I feel for you because of what you did to my aunt.  Blood is thicker than water and YOU ARE NOT MY BLOOD.

  I began writing you this letter long ago, and haven't sent it because I was looking out for my aunt.  Now that she is out of the house and has dismissed you from her life as of today, I feel as if I can send this to you.  I want you to know how deplorable I think you are for every single thing that you've done.  I know that you've been having your mistress over on the weekends.  You can't even spend quality time with your children, especially RYLEE, on the weekends?  Have to have your little fun, right?  Well, think about what that has done to Rylee, having to keep that a secret from Mary.  How do the boys feel about being put in the middle?  You don't care.  You want what you want and it doesn't matter who gets hurt in the process. If you think the expensive presents will make up for you not being a real father to your children, think again.  Love isn't bought.  Love is shown through actions, and you are obviously incapable of doing that.

It's not just them who have been hurt either.  Yes, they received the majority of the pain, but what about the rest of your former family?  Where is the uncle that I used to take a Christmas picture with every year?  Where's the uncle that used to let me count to 100 while sitting on his lap?  He's gone.  You're not that person anymore.  You're not a part of my life anymore, and you don't deserve to be.  How dare you send me a text on Thanksgiving telling me to appreciate what I have.  I DO.  I love everything about my life and I cherish the people I share it with.  You are no longer part of that picture.  You've done things to your wife and children that I just can't tolerate. 

Thank goodness Grandma and Grandaddy aren't alive to see this.  What a disappointment you'd be to them.

I hope that you're happy with your choices, Mike.  Disregarding your family's needs for your own selfishness.  Throwing away over 2 decades of memories.  Tossing aside your entire family for a woman who is obviously not much substance if she'll take up with a married man with four kids (Gosh, if she'd do that with you, who's to say she's not going to do that TO you...).  Turning your back on everything that was good in your life.

Don't bother replying to me, this is it for me.  I will no longer spend anymore of my precious time on a disappointment.

I hope the choices you've made follow you for the rest of your life.

Thoughts on a Tuesday

Had a meeting today to set up my Camp Inventions classroom, funny though, still not at 60 kids, so maybe I just helped out for nothing.  I swear, if the daycare calls me tomorrow....I'll peace out on Camp Inventions.  She's strung me along since the beginning of June.  She's disorganized and tried to make me feel bad today for not wanting to stay and have pizza because Ben and I had errands to run before he went to work.  Give me a break.  I know ONE other person there and would have lunch with her, but I don't really care about staying and getting to know everyone else.  I would rather spend time with Ben.

Got my bike back today!!!  Once I get some energy, I'll take a picture of it.  My plans are to do my P90X cardio workout after I take Ben lunch and then cool down by taking the dogs for a walk.  Until then, I've got the laundry and the dishwasher running.  I think that's good enough.

Some more anniversary pictures!

I think Otis got out the back fence today

His dreams of playing with the neighbor dog have been fulfilled.
Somehow, our fence got open, and he got out.  I'm sure he did, because I didn't see him out back, and he didn't come to the door when I opened it.  Rilo was barking from inside, and Ben went out and saw the gate was wide open.  At this point in the day, Otis would usually be jumping all over the place dying to go for a walk.  Instead, he's passed out on his blanket in the middle of the living room.  All signs point to him getting out and coming right back.
What a good boy!

Now, I need get off this damn computer and take a shower.  My house is a wreck and it needs to be taken care of.  (Because then we can watch Episode 5 of True Blood-season 3)

Jobs, To Dos, and Wishes

I applied for 2 more jobs online...just a clerk and an assistant position.  Nothing exciting, but just something to fall back on just in case I don't get hired on at the daycare.  Found out the youth center on base is hiring too, so I'm gonna try that too.  I called and they seemed really excited that I had daycare experience and  was a certified teacher.  Hopefully I'll be doing something that'll pay well, ha.

To Do:
1. Pick up bike (Thanks, Bike Dude in Clovis!)
2. Pick up car
3. File a reimbursement claim... (We thought our dryer was messed up, turns out, our vent was backed up through our wall and so it was Housing's fault...they said we should have called them first.  If your dryer has problems, would YOU think to call Housing?  I contacted Legal and they said we were entitled to file a claim)

MAC Wishlist:
Eyes: freshwater

I should probably go and brush my hair and put on some makeup.  Cramps have kept me from doing almost anything today.

Information for Children and Parents about dogs:

1. Teach your children not to just run up to every dog.  You don't know if the dog is friendly or if the dog has been around children before.
2. NEVER leave your child unsupervised with a dog that is not on a leash or in a secure area.  Dogs are territorial and protective of their "pack", and that's asking for someone to get bit because the dog is protecting your child.
3. If your child is on a walk with you, please keep them NEAR you, not running up on the heels of people who are walking their dogs.
4. Some people just don't want other people walking up and petting their dogs.  LEARN that.
5. Teach your children that if they're riding a bike and see a dog walking, move to the other side of the street safely. 

These tips should be common sense, but apparently no one in any of the neighborhoods surround mine have any.

Ouch, my legs and abs

P90X better make me super fit, otherwise I'm gonna be upset at how destroyed my body is tonight.

The dryer guy is coming tomorrow sometime between 8 and 12pm.  I'm gonna have a friend come over with me so I don't have to be alone when he's here.  Ben will be at work and I wasn't thinking about that when I made the appointment.  Awesome.  Let's hope that it doesn't need a new expensive part.

I didn't really do anything exciting today at all.  I haven't done any sketches lately because I haven't had that creative "umph" to do some.  I started on a zombie pin up, but I'm not sure if I like it yet.

I don't have anything else to say tonight.

2 year anniversary pics/I started p90x (fml)

Just a preview from the anniversary shoot from the lovely Megan Haney:

Ben and I started P90X today.  My legs feel like jello.  This can't be a good thing.  Maybe I'll look slammin' by the time we get to Japan though.  Cooled off (in the NM heat??!!) after the workout by taking the pups for a walk.  We're all laying on the couch now, they're passed out...I'm about to.  I think Margot is hiding in the box that our resistance bands came in today. 

Things to do tomorrow: (this is a for real, seriously need to get these things done tomorrow list)
1. Pick up the car from the dealership.
2. Make a doctor's appointment.
3. Call the dentist. (iick)
4. Take the pets in to get weighed in their kennels.
5. Send my passport info in with Ben to get finished.
6. Call the CDC.

I think that's all.  None of that will get done until I have my coffee though. (At least 2 cups)

A Rainy Sunday in New Mexico!

I love it when it rains.  The air always feels so nice and I love the sound it makes on my roof and on the brick of my patio.  Just so pleasant.

Played some Fable 2 today and did some laundry.  Dryer still isn't working properly, but the people should be out this week to take care of it.  *hopefully it isn't super expensive!*

Bringing my resume to the military daycare that's in my neighborhood.  They're hiring and with my experience and teacher certification, I shouldn't have a problem getting a job.  *hopefully*

I gauged up my ears today. I'm at a size 2 currently.

One of my favorite things to do is cuddle with Rilo.

Hi, my name is Margot, and I'm really freaking cute.

Rilo is a princess.

All three of the babies on in the guest room soaking up sun and watching the world go by.  (and yes, that is stuffing on the bed...apparently they thought a pillow needed to be destroyed.)

My "To Do" List Today:

1. Take nursery letters to baby shop in the mall.  Hopefully sell some!
2. Get new hermit crab.
3. Gauge ears.
4. Scrapbook.
5. Clean floors.
6. Walk dogs.

Not a terribly big list, but still lots that need to be done!

I really want THIS shirt or hoodie.  Medium shirt, small hoodie, please.


Got everything except number 4 done.  It's OK.  New crab is Freddy Mercrabby.  I think any non dog/cat pet I get from now on will be named after dead musicians.  I've already got John Lennoncrab.

Girls' night's hoping it's filled with laughter, games, and definitely some wine.  If anyone out there reading this likes wine (or maybe isn't too sure), I recommend Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc.  It's a New Zealand wine with a very tangy (not dry) taste that is attributed to grapefruit.  It's delicious.  Not too sweet, not dry at all, and goes well with lots of different dinners!

Friday, July 9, 2010

I packed 2 or 3 more boxes last night.  Our guest room is a disaster area...but that's OK.  Luckily, only Otis goes in there to lay on the bed and look out the window.

I've emailed a girl with a baby shop to see if she if I can leave my letters there and hopefully get some orders.  We'll see. 

I think we're gonna go get some bike tires today for my way awesome bike.  I'm pretty pumped about it...and I can't wait to get a basket!  It'll be nice to start riding around with Ben.  The weather has been really nice too!

50 Questions

Live What You Love: 50 Questions to Ask Yourself

Probing into myself isn’t easy. I’m so thick-headed. I can adequately probe someone else, but when it comes time to ask myself, “what do I want?” I always come up blank. So as an exercise for myself and you, I’ve created a list of questions to ask ourselves to help define that passion. They are not in any particular order, except for my own random stream of consciousness. I tried to avoid common cliche questions, as I’ve never found them helpful and you probably wouldn’t either.
  1. How do you really feel about what you are doing right now at this exact moment?  I honestly feel stressed, happy, successful, and creative.
  2. What is your fondest childhood memory? Who was there? What was going on? I'm at my Grandma's house watching Matlock eating cabbage after Summer Adventures.  I miss those days.
  3. How comfortable are you in your home? Very.  I've made my home what it is and it's a good reflection of both myself and Ben.
  4. How comfortable are you in your town/city? State? I really don't like this place at all.  The part we're in is disgusting and full of crime.  The illegal people here think that everything should be handed to them while they fill the town with crime.  I'm all for welcoming people over to our country, but not these types of people. 
  5. What kind of weather do you like? The weather today is perfect.  It's sunny and warm with a cool breeze that blows at just the right time.  (Although I must admit that I really enjoy a loud thunderstorm.)
  6. Do you believe you can have your cake and eat it, too? Why or why not? Why couldn't you?  If you've got something and have worked for it, you might as well enjoy it to the best you can.
  7. What is one quality about your parent(s) that you really loved? My mom worked her ass off my entire life.
  8. What is one quality about your parent(s) that you really do not like? My biological father is a loser.  He has no morals and lives a life of crime.
  9. Do you like what you are doing for money? I had better, it's what I went to school for!
  10. What do you feel is your greatest skill? I'm able to accomplish whatever I set my mind to.
  11. What do you feel is your greatest personality trait? I'm incredibly loving and empathetic....almost to a fault actually.
  12. Do you feel like anything in your life is holding you back from ultimate joy? List everything. The only thing holding me back from ultimate joy is myself.  As soon as I find self actualization and am able to articulate my feelings in a more effective way, I know I'll be happier.
  13. Write a paragraph or two about your ideal weekend/time away from work. Include location, sights, smells, food, activities, and people. My ideal weekend would include my mom, dad, husband, and all of our friends.  Anyone with a negative attitude or surly personality need not apply.  We would spend the weekend going to the zoo where we would get to interact with the animals and feed them.  Then we would head off to an amusement park for a day full of fun!  After all of that, a bonfire in a wooded area would be lit and stories, laughter, and games would be heard.
  14. How close are you in proximity to the people you absolutely adore the most? 11 hours away.
  15. What do you want out of life? To have love, give love, and be happy.
  16. How do you think people will remember you, when you die? Sarcastic, loving, and a wonderful friend/family member.
  17. How do you want people to remember you, when you die? The same.
  18. Write your epitaph - the sentence you would want to appear on your grave. An amazing person, an amazing life.
  19. What is one thing you could do today, this week, this month, or this year to get a step closer to creating the legacy in #17? I'm living it.
  20. How do you feel about your home furnishings? I love most of them, I'd like to get a new living room set, but I'm content with what we have.
  21. Do you have a hobby that you like to do but you don’t get paid for? What is it? I paint.
  22. Does money hold you back from anything? What does it hold you back from? Be very specific.Growing up without money has really left its mark in me in that I have a hard time spending any money on things that are not necessarily needed.  I have a deep fear that I will be poor again.
  23. What do you think of passionate people? I respect them.
  24. Do you know anyone who you feel is living their dream? Who? What do they do all day and night? Be very specific. I think everyone is on their way to living their own dreams.
  25. Do you think you can be completely satisfied living where you do right now? NO. 
  26. What do you want to accomplish? I want to have a successful career and start a family.
  27. Do you want to change your career? No.
  28. Do you wish you lived closer to a certain someone or group of people? I wish I was closer to MO.
  29. Do you wish you lived in a foreign country or a far away state? We are moving to Japan in October and I'm looking forward to that.
  30. What are three things that you do everyday that make you totally happy? My husband, my dogs, my family.
  31. What do you want to pass on to your children? The ability to see things in another person's viewpoint.
  32. What is something you have never tried but would like to? I'd like to skydive!
  33. Are there things in life you wish you could reverse or make right? I won't delve into specifics, but everyone has things such as this.
  34. Do you feel like you have enough money to live the way you want to?Yes.
  35. Are you happy when you think about the upcoming day and all that it comes with? Yes.
  36. What do you find challenging? Expressing my emotions without fear of a fight.
  37. What do you find thrilling? Life.
  38. What are three memories you haven’t yet created but you would like to? Birth of a child, buying a house, moving close to family.
  39. Do you feel energized when you work? Yes.
  40. Do you feel creative when you work? Depends on how many political hoops I have to jump through that day.
  41. Describe what you consider work, and what you consider play. What are the differences? Work is the part of my day that I spend doing things for the state/federal government.  Play is when I am interacting with the kids helping them learn.  I don't think I need to list the differences.
  42. Do you feel blessed or lucky to wake up each day? How can you get to that point? Yes of course!  Do what you love.
  43. If all of your debt was forgiven tomorrow, and you had a completely clean slate, what is the very FIRST thing you would change about your life? I wouldn't necessarily change something, but I would have a weight lifted from my shoulders!
  44. Where are three places you have always thought about living but never did? Hmmm, not really sure about this one.  I've always been interested in living in the areas surrounding Kansas City. 
  45. When do you want to retire? When I'm financially stable enough to do so.
  46. Is there an award or accolade you have always dreamed of winning or being recognized for? Not an award, specifically, but my work should be recognized.
  47. If you could learn how and money was not an issue, is there anything else you would do for work besides what you are doing now? Be specific. I'd love to be a skilled artist.
  48. List three things you would immediately change about your work day if you were the boss (assumes you are not the boss). I would get rid of a certain person I worked with who is NOT good at his/her job but sucks up when the boss is around.  Well, that's about it.  That's really the only thing I have to complain about my job.
  49. List three things you would immediately start doing on the weekends if you had the money. Traveling to the PRETTY places in this state.
  50. Imagine it is a big holiday and you are with your loved ones and you are living what you truly love. When they ask what you have been doing, what do you say in reply? Living and loving my life.

My first EBAY listing!

Nursery Letters

Ben and I ran some errands today...actually had to get out of the house after relaxing Sunday and Monday.
*Went to Hobby Lobby where I got the nursery letters to paint (see below) and some more canvases.
*Ate lunch at this delish Mexican place.
*Went to Hastings to get the first True Blood novel (and I found A Lion Among Men for $5.99!!!)
*Went to Walmart and got a new phone charger.
*Took our car to the dealership to get the window replaced. (lame)

I need to get the next gauge size at Hot Topic.  I think I'm going to stop at a 2...who knows though. 

Pictures from the 4th:

I painted 3 nursery letter examples.  So far, I have a couple people interested in it, hopefully will get some buyers and make some money doing something I like!
