Yesterday I spent all day at the Atlanta Job Fair. It was a big mess. The line to get in was 45 minutes long. And there didn't seem to be any air conditioning. I did talk to the lady with TeachGeorgia, and she said that if I passed the Praxis II in ESOL, she would definately find a spot for me.

Then I spent 2 hours waiting for the bus outside and got a terrible sunburn. However, I had a lovely conversation with a man named Sydney who had traveled all over the world while he worked for TWA, and also knew a bit of Japanese. We talked for about an hour. I met several other interesting people: a lady who taught ESL in Paris, a couple from Athens who just found out they're expecting their first child, and another lady who wanted to sell cars. Although it was a bit of a pain, we had a good time talking to one another.

Congratulations Daniel and Kathleen! I pray you have a joy-filled marriage!


Family and Friends,

As you know Daniel and Kathleen are engaged to be married.
What you may not know is that the wedding day is September 22, 2005. That
is only three days away! You also may not know that we are not having a
wedding ceremony here in town, we have chosen to go with a more elopement
style wedding/honeymoon. However, since this is the 21st Century you can
still participate in our small (just the two of us) wedding ceremony taking
place in Las Vegas! Our wedding will be available for viewing, live, via
web cam on an Internet site that I will give you shortly. Also, a few days
after the wedding you will still be able to access the wedding ceremony on
the same website as it will be archived for ninety days.

.......

We hope you will join us! Thank you for your prayers and all your
encouragements and congratulations! We love you and look forward to sharing
all about our honeymoon adventure when we return (which is October 6th).

All of our Love,
Daniel and Kathleen

Happy 28th Birthday, Chris

Monday, September 12, 2005

OK, well, today I made a wand for my Tonks costume. It's pretty much done except for some sanding and varnish. Yes, I carved it myself. Maybe I'll get ambitious and post a pic of it.

I AM BORED. I need a job desperately, or I am going to drive myself crazy. I can't keep sitting at home every day. But every job avenue proves futile. I just don't know what else to do.

Also got back on Eat Right 4 Your Type this weekend. I don't know why I ever stopped. My headaches get better, I have lots of energy, and I eat as much as I want.

Tomorrow is my brother's 28th birthday. We celebrated last night with lobster and artichokes. Wednesday, Chris leaves for his job in Tennessee, which will keep him there for about a year. Just my dad and I in the house. Ugh. It's gonna suck....

I realize I've allowed my blog to slide off my importance list, but I promise to make more of an effort. I will start with:

Here's me in the Wheel of Time track section of the parade Saturday morning. I'm on the right in the light blue shawl. This pic is by koinegeek from Fans for Christ.
