It’s true, I CAN predict if it’s going to be windy outside. This all started after I had knee surgery and now I can usually tell if it’s going to be windy a day before the wind starts blowing. My left knee seems to get extra stiff and has a dull, pullsing pain. I looked it up and found THIS ARTICLE, makes a lot of sense! My mom, who had knee surgery YEARS ago can tell when it’s going to rain…I can only tell if it’s going to be windy. Maybe a qualification for Weather Men should be knee surgery…might help them out, we all know it wouldn’t hurt them!
In other news for the day: I’m finished with my cover letter/resume to send out to two magazines! All I need is for my professor to look over it one last time and then I’ll mail them. The two I’m enquiring about are travelgirl and Latina. These are two longshots, but I figure there is absolutely NO way I will ever work for them if I don’t try…so I’m trying. After I send those out I’ll work on getting my portfolio out to a few more realistic magazines; Albuquerque, New Mexico and a few other regional ones. The point is, I’m not going to be lazy anymore…I’m trying to motivate myself, stop complaining and freaking out that I might have chosen the wrong career, and make something happen! Even if I get a rejection letter, or several, at least I know they’re looking at my stuff!
Yesterday I was talking to Sean and we were both saying how unmotivated and how our attitude has turned pretty apathetic towards life. He’s graduating this year, so he’s in the midst of freaking out…I’m just unmotivated. Anyway, I mentioned how I want to get away and go somewhere (like you haven’t heard that before!). Then he said something that surprised me and really made me think. He said that if I were to move somewhere else, what would I be doing that I couldn’t do here. Wow. He has an amazing point.
I have lived somewhere else and to be honest, even though I was thousands of miles away from here, it was still the same on some level. I started thinking about about what I would want to do if I lived in another city, say Boston, I would want to go out and enjoy its night life….so that’s what I’m going to do here, in Las Cruces. I’m going to take advantage of what I have here for as long as I have it. This afternoon Laura and whoever else wants to tag along, are going out for happy hour. 🙂
Things are good!
