Poke poke all :-D

Well it's a Sunday and its raining, why not mess around on IJ and actually update.

I'm doing fairly well considering. Some of you know already that I ended being one of the many that were dismissed from the academy. I suppose the positive thing is that it was unjustibly done and the captain from the sheriffs department ended up making a report against the academy because when I went to turn in my equipment, saw that my forearms and hands were burned. The academy is difficult which goes without question, but during our heat wave where temperatures reached 104-106 degrees, they had us do push ups and flutter kicks on new asphalt that has been heating up all day ( we did end up saying something but were yelled to keep our hand down on it for 5-10 mins. Several times a day). The captain ended up furious at the mistreatment and misconduct in which they were training us considering that they were dismissing people without cause and we are not suppose to be trained to withstand being burned. So all in all because I was in good standings within the academy (technically) and they thought I have a strong background and character, I can return to a different academy.

In the mean time, they ended up having me work in personal then found me a job working as a bailiff/ court officer. It's pretty fun and I love the people I work with, but I just wish I got paid more lol. It's fun to listen to all the crazy cases and be on the other side of working with attorneys. I'm the one that runs the show and get to boss attorneys around lol. I've actually ran into people I use to work with already and I may have made some of them last in the order of 70 or 80. Yep, never piss off those that work for you because you never know when the tables will turn >:-).

Oh, and it seems things may have worked out at the end of things. While out of academy, I found out that they no longer have deputies work search and rescue really. It seems that it has move to being more volunteer based, so I submitted my application there as well as began volunteering for project wildlife, helping animals and the environment. I figure I'll continue to add to my resume with things and continue my education when I can. At least I have my business degree, but it would be nice to get my "environmental" degree, so I may consider doing park rangers/ forestry or something with animals which is what I really wanted to do with the county. Who know though, working for the county offers me a lot of options.

On the update for my mother, unfortunately she had surgery 2 weeks ago and her pathology report did't come back well. It came back with her doctors disappointed that there were a lot more live cancer cells around than they expected to find, so it's like she's having to start at square one all over again. She has to have surgery again tomorrow, so I may be online if anyone wants to chat or play words with friends (obsessed with that game).

WWF Username: Silvia can't spell crap ( don't judge me :-P)

I will also try to catch up on IJ and good lord, all the BB entries *iz taken aback by all that I need to catch up on*

Heart you all and hope things have been going well.
Please tell me anything new that I may have missed or gosh any randomness you would love to tell me.
Deep dark secrets are always fun to ;-)

Extra Extra!

I keep forgetting to do my positive update. As some of you know, I’ve been in the process of joining the Sheriff’s department since December. This last weekend was my final testing consisting of a 6 ft wall + run, 6 ft chain link fence + run, 165 dummy drag, 99 yard obstacle course, and 500 yard dash. I’ve been training like crazy for the last 2 months or so and I am happy to say I PASSED!!! I start the academy August 13th, beginning my 6 months of hell lol. It's a risk of course, but I’m excited, nervous, and overall I’m going to try my best to succeed in it.

I’m so going to miss my friend’s and I boredom day of drawing and griping at work lol.
We are both going in the academy together though, so we will just be the nightmare team for our trainers.

Here are some random text drawings of ours lol.

Beware of quarky pic-age )


Yep, we so work hard.

Spectacular Craptacular!

I’m sure most have figured out from my posts that I really don’t have the best of luck. I’ve come to expect it over the years, but I have to say that this year has been the most emotionally trying year that I’ve had thus far.

I should really try and find more positive things to post about, but alas...

Oi is Oi )
Picture Spam )

So I’ll be slow commenting, but I’m around (I’m not ignoring anyone or think works are craptacular). I’m just reading and catching up on posts.

It's been one Hell of a week and it's only Wednesday. I just wanted to thank all those writers and commenters out there and let you know I appreciate all the time and effort you put in. You really do make a difference when things in RL are challenging. You create a simple escape and offer a sympathetic ear through your works and cheers, especially when they are relatable to current tribulations.

Busy Bee, Eating Veggies

Well, I'm here again bored since things had been pretty laid back on IJ today and I've caught up over the weekends mail of IJ fanfiction. Not much to do, so I thought I'd bore you all with a RL post.

*Pounding sounds from a closed word document*

What was that? Pounding? I don't hear any pounding. Ah, no you must of heard something else because I don't hear any Snarry fic documents that I'm suppose to be working on ^.^'

On with ze RL stuff... )

Randomness

Well since nothing is really going on in IJ today, I’m just bored enough to create a post while purposely trying not to look at my cliché fest entry that is glaring at me lol. I am seriously insane to think of participating, but eh it’s what I say every time I attempt a fic with a deadline. Maybe I’ll actually get it done on time *gasp*. I currently have about 1,500 words down which is my new record thus far, but I have a loooong way to go. All I can say is that I already feel bad for my future beta.

*Shakes fist in the air* Dang you dialog and past/present tense difficulties!!!

Adventure Junkie

Life is either an incredible adventure…or nothing at all

My life’s story has been filled with many ups and downs that were harder than others and easier than others. Each of our lives is no less significant than the other, but we all choose our own way to walk through life to make it impactful or not.

I have deemed, as well as others, myself as an adventure junkie.

I try to gain new experiences and explore the world because more often life is just too short. I learn a new hobby/sport and excel at it then move on to the next one.

There is no other feeling like doing something dangerous and so daring.

In a way it gives your life so much meaning and life that the day to day dullness.

Etiquette and the Shame of our Society

Our society, to put it bluntly, is another Hoverville with a little more class. What ever happened to the proper way of speaking, dress, and communication in general?

Integrity

Photobucket

I want to be looked upon as having integrity because of my morals. I do this for myself to say I had it all, to become legendary if you will. I’m not striving for perfection but to at least give it my all. Yes I have been told that I am a perfectionist, but I never want to accept something lower than I deserve. I don’t want to sell myself short. I believe when god finally sees us as perfection that he will take us away to the kingdom of heaven. Perfection is seen in the eyes of the beholder.

Life Reflection

Now this isn't mine, but is something worth posting. It is a collection of unspoken truths that humans are often guilty of throughout life. I can attest that I have also been guilty of so many of these negative actions. After reading, I fully agree with this person's thoughts and perspective on how even negative thoughts have power to create a postive.

As a consequence of their self-absorbed consciousness, humans are the most cruelest and horrible of species on this Earth. Knowing this, we should always be reserved with our trust toward and inner-most feelings for others.

You're depression is a result of your insolent desire for self-destruction. - Kahlil Gibran.

When in an emotional slump, force yourself to open your eyes and appreciate the natural beauty of the world. This is also a good way to reinforce one's humility.

Just a Percentage

Last week I was just trying to wrap my mind around reality and take a break to catch up. I bet i failed my chemestry test because of it.

Although I am 23 years old, my parents’ announcement of divorcing is still shocking to me. I have known that it was to be for a while, but it is still difficult I suppose. They have been married for 29 years with many ups and down that I can remember, but over the last few years things seemed as if they were settling down to a comfortable relationship. It seemed as though as they have aged and things were on a nice schedule and were out doing things on occasion, but then took a turn somewhere down the line where my mother kept complaining that my dad just slept all day. She was starting to go out more with her work friends and ended up getting a facebook where she reconnected with high school friends. It seemed they were now living 2 separate lives.

Forever Immortalized



“I don’t want to be buried.


I would like to live forever…”


I’m going to pay my personal tribute to Michael Jackson's shocking death.

In all honesty I am quite surprised that his death impacted me so much. I still can’t put my mind around the fact that he’s dead. His death is to the level, if not more, of Elvis, Princess Diana, Kennedy.Michael died of cardiac arrest yesterday that many refused to believe. So much so that Google announced technical difficulties after a sudden swell in searches for "Michael Jackson" led the company to believe it was under attack from hackers, while social networking site Twitter reported a crash after record numbers of users used the site to spread the news of Jackson's death. Wikipedia had temporarily experienced technical difficulties and crashed reportedly due to excessive edits and user overload.

It has been reported that police are searching for Michael Jackson's personal doctor, currently missing, after the star's family suggested he died because of a drug overdose of Demerol, a synthetic form of morphine.

Worth--My life, My Vengeance

Out in the real world I am know to participate in aggressive sports even though my stereotype look seems like they are the last things I would choose to do. I’m a quiet introvert, so I need something where I take out any stress, anger, or any type of emotion. Confrontation is one thing I try to avoid, so to express that raw emotion I simply beat someone up or in the case of fencing you're stabbing someone over and over again. I'm not very good at expressing how I feel to others, so I would rather deal with it by exerting all that energy into something else. There is nothing like building your adrenaline up and pushing your limits until you’re spent.

I know it seems psychotic, but if you get on my bad side and really tic me off I need to let it out somehow doing something productive. I use to be great at fencing in high school, granted that I was used as a human pincushion with a lot of bruises, but that is to be expected in all contact sports.
