    Journal entry number... Who's counting?!

    Lots goin' on recently...

    I quit the sales job about three weeks ago. I wasn't making any money, which made it hard for me to travel from city to city. They expect you to keep wasting gas on demos that don't sell anything. I lost more money than I made. I wasn't really a big fan of the sales manager anyway. He was kind of a d-bag. One of those guys who won't take "no" for an answer, even if it was said a thousand times. I don't think I want to work sales again... I felt like I was twisting people's arms to buy an expensive vacuum. My old co-worker from US Bank and I were talkin' about that job yesterday (she used to work for Kirby) and she said, "You can either have a cleaner house, or you can eat." I think I like eating better than being able to pull more dirt out of my carpet.

    My grandmother passed away on 9/19. That really sucked. It was one of the hardest things for me to deal with. I spent a lot of time with my grandma as a kid and it kinda hit home when I heard she passed. I never really had the opportunity to visit her in her later years. I've had some me time since then, so I suppose I'm okay now. My grandmother had a thing for wolves, which is why I like them so much. I ended up getting quite a few pieces of her wolf memorabilia so, I have something to remind me of her. I also got a necklace with her ashes in it and my mom wants me to keep the urn of ashes, once I get my apartment situation taken care of. After a year or two, I think we're gonna do somethin' with the ashes. My god-brother gave me the idea of spreading her ashes in the wolf reserve up north.

    The whole thing made me realize that my family actually cares about me more than I thought. I've always been kinda distant from my family. I don't know, I guess I have a hard time opening up to them and telling them how I feel. I've always been the "different one"; the "black sheep". I always thought that I was treated different from my other siblings. It's one of the reasons I joined the Army back in '98 and left town several times after I returned from the military. But now, I find myself wanting to see more of them and they've been trying to keep closer contact with me. I suppose a loss in the family brings said family closer. I wish it didn't really have to come to that though.

    What else is new? Well, we all know about the AO attack--unless you've been under a rock recently. ^_^ I was so shocked to find out that we were under hack-attack. I was in detective mode most of Monday and Tuesday. I tried my best to find a way to help out AO. I found a bunch of "how to hack vBulletin" tutorials on YouTube and one was credited to fkn0wned.com, so I thought I was on to something for a while. Come to find out, the next day, I was way off. I knew when I found AO back up and I heard nothing from CB. ^_^

    This is my favorite site, so I'm glad it's back up--with or without my help. I was forced to go to Facebook in the absence of Anime Online. I never used Facebook so much in my life! LOL. Hell, I barely used it at all up until recently.

    Anywho, I think that's all that's new in my life. Oh! Wait... Nope... I lost it.

    Thanks, Abu. I'm sure she is too. ^_^

    I know I am.
