Hehe, nothing like the end of the world to get your holiday juices flowing! Seriously though, the astronomical alignment that's supposed to happen on 12-21-12 is pretty amazing. It only happens about once every 17,000 (or was it 18,000?) years so I guess that's something to celebrate (the sun is supposed to pass right through the center of the galaxy from our point of view, among other things!) The Mayan calender is very fascinating in how it has cycles within cycles within cycles within cycles, etc. This particular one is what starts the BIGGEST cycle on their calender all over again. Incredible, isn't it? And they did this without modern technology.
On a more personal note, I didn't go back to Florida after all. I did get a job, but it was terrible timing concerning a lot of things (and it was causing a lot of frayed nerves at home). They told me I can reapply again, but I'll have to wait a few months, damn... So, I'm out of a job for the moment. I'm looking around, and there ain't much in my area of expertise (retail) since its in the middle of the holidays. I am looking at office jobs, but after my two week stint back in September my confidence in this area is very shaky. I know its not the same every place, it was a small company and they had some sort of clique thing going on, and I just didn't fit in. Lets hope someone out there gives me a chance. In the meantime, if I can sell some homemade stuff that will be great, and I also went through my stuff to see what to give away, throw away, or sell. It helps, but it won't be enough.
My sister is now officially engaged as well, so now she's going through the process of slowly moving her stuff out to her fiance's place. I knew one of us was going to do that by this Christmas, I just wish it could've been me. At least I'll be getting my dad's old car. It'll definitely help when I finally get another job.
I do have some pictures of a few crafts that I've worked on over the years that I will be posting soon when Christmas begins to wind down, and I have some more chapter revisions in the works for my Slayers story, so look out for those as well!
