|Whew! I feel as though this week has been a bit of a whirlwind. I have a couple of topics to post about. But, first things first...
Finally got it up and coordinated into something that is pleasing to me! My theme title is Birthday Wishes because, well, my birthday is less than one month away. Can you believe it? I can't. And as for the sea-like theme...it fits because I am a Piscean. But, I swear it's purely coincidence. ^_^;
I wanted to do something a bit more complicated, sort of like my previous Sailor Moon layout, except with a navigation menu and an introduction and such. But, MyO was being ridiculous yesterday and wouldn't save code that I copy and pasted into my introduction or post styles. The only way I could get things to work was if I typed everything into the field manually. Which was tedious. Eventually I want to do a multi-column layout...but for now I think this will suffice and that it turned out quite nice. ^_^
I created a world. Not for blogging purposes...I'm staying solely on MyO for that. And still want to bring MyO back to the community that it used to be. No, I made a world because I want to create a Sailor Moon fandom on the web. The whole shebang. Episode Guides for all 200 episodes, Season Summaries, Movie Summaries, Character Bios, you name it. It'll only cover the anime though, since that's where my obsession lies. I never got into the manga or the live action or the video games...etc.
Plus I figure if people on TheO start visiting my world, they might be interested to learn more about me and come to MyO. And I can slowly sort of direct people back here. It could work, right? ^_^
Anyways, you can find my world here. There's nothing on it yet, but that will soon be changing....
Every night this week except for one I have had nightmares. And they were all about Ru. Well, Ru and I having fights or disagreements, or not being together, specifically. And I hate that. It makes me worry about things that I shouldn't, or that don't really exist. And it doesn't help that most of my family and friends are less than supportive of our relationship. I have a big imagination, and my mind tends to run away with the notion that something will happen to us, or that he won't want to be with me anymore.
But I know deep down that this isn't true. I trust him and his feelings for me with all of my heart. I trust that things, although sometimes difficult at the moment, will all work out for us in the end. And every time I feel myself begin to doubt, I look at the flowers he gave me last Saturday, or the last text he sent me where he tells me he loves me. I just miss him so much, and I didn't get to see him this weekend. I can't wait until next weekend where I can be with him again, even though he will be working a lot.
But oh, these nightmares! I wish they would go away. Just thinking about them makes me want to break down and cry....
And to top it all off, I am sick again. Not as bad as before, but still. It's an annoyance.
Oh well, things will look up. They always do. Sorry for the long, rambling post, guys. I just had to get this all out somewhere, somehow. Thanks for reading. ^_^

|Okay, I know I said I wouldn't update until I got the layout up.
But MyO won't save code that I add to my intro or post styles!!
What's the deal? Can anyone help me? T_T
Scratch that last. A proper update to come tomorrow, since my theme is complete. ^_^

|Working on a new layout for the remainder of this month and the month of March. Hope to have it up by the end of this weekend. Won't post again till it's up...but will continue to visit everyone's sites.
Hope everyone has had a good week! ^_^

Well, it has been a couple of days. And as you can probably guess, I've been pretty busy. Saturday and Sunday I was at Ru's apartment again. Luckily, we're both better from being sick. We had a happy and relaxing day-before-Valentine's Day together staying inside and snuggling in bed and watching the movie Cinderella Man. He also got me some roses and a box of chocolates. ^_^
Our first Valentine's Day together of hopefully many more to come. I hope everyone else's Valentine's Day was as nice as mine, whether you are with someone or not.
Yesterday I started my new 'job.' I babysit 3 kids (all boys) Monday through Friday from 8 till 4 for $8.00 an hour. The oldest, Alex is 6 years old and in kindergarten. Next is Nicholas, who is 4 years old. And the youngest is Willie, who will be two next month. It is a handful, let me tell you! They are all very sweet boys, but put them all in the same room together and it can get kind of crazy...and exhausting. ^_^;
Today was more of the same of that, except a bit more frustrating. All three boys were acting up and being rowdy today. Luckily I get somewhat of a break when Alex goes to kindergarten, but there were still some moments today where I wanted to rip my hair out. It's all good though because overall I had a ton of fun. ^_^
DFD33: COME HOME THIS WEEKENDDDDDDD.
Brit: I guess the catch would be that my company job did not pay very well at all, and my babysitting job I am being paid in all cash so no taxes will be taken off. XP
corn: No problem! I'm always up for making new friends on MyO. And yes, these little sinkers mess with me all the time. But it's fun. :P
Belinda: Thanks! And she is/was upset that I missed out on her Super Bowl get-together two weekends ago because I was sick. :(
Faroe: In my last message to her, I suggested hanging out this weekend because I will be home. But she hasn't said anything back yet. :(

A couple of updates...
1. I got the babysitting job!! I start Monday. Crazily enough, I'll be making more there than I did at my 'company' job. Not a whole lot more, but still.
2. There was something else...but I forgot?? -_-;
Hey everyone! So as you can see, I'm happy to report that my unemployment did not last very long. Thanks, Craigslist! Teehee.
Since today is the last of my free days, I'm going to actually be productive instead of lazy like I have been for the rest of the week. ^_^;
I have a website for a band that I need to work on (I've been continuously putting it off), and then later I'm going to make an old-fashioned fancy heart-shaped Valentine for Ru, because I can. Haha.
Cait sent me an angry message on Facebook two days ago. I responded, but she hasn't said anything back. *sigh* :(
I don't feel like posting a whole lot today, so that'll be it for now! ^_^
Lute: Thank you! I try to be as on top of things as I can. I'm a perfectionist, so sometimes I give myself way too much to handle. And I tend to make a big deal out of things that aren't such a big deal. Luckily for me this time around, it paid off. I didn't have much of a break from jobs at all. And don't worry, you WILL find something!!
Brit: I actually used to have a friend like that. She happened to be my very best friend, to top it all off. Every time I was with someone, she sabotaged the relationship. At the beginning of last year I had enough...I ended things with her. We had more problems than just the relationship thing...it was for the best.
DFD33: This is why I love you so much and why our friendship has lasted so long (going on 10 years now!!). You're not high maintenance. You don't get pissed off if plans go awry, and you don't stick your nose into my business unless I ask you to. Yet you are still one of my very best friends because you not only care about my well-being, but we always, always have a good time together as well! We have so many memories together, and I can't wait to make even more in the following years. You'll always be my bro for life. ^_^
Rain: Thank you for being proud of me! Personally, I think I should have gotten out a lot sooner, but what's done is done. And you are right...the way things are going now, there is no way that company is going to last much longer.
Faroe: Ru is indeed my boyfriend. Ru is not his real name, but he is a really private person, so I am hiding his identity for his sake. He is my backbone and the best thing that could have happened to me. Cait is one of my best friends. After a disaster happened between my former best friend and I a little over a year ago, I've decided I don't want to single out one person and call them my best friend. I'd rather have a handful of best friends than just one. ^_^ And thank you, things will work out eventually...

Long post. Here we go.
So over the weekend I was at Ru's. Which happens to be about 3-4 hours away from where I live and work (depending on how fast you drive and how much traffic there is). I had been planning to leave at 3 pm on Sunday afternoon, because one of my best friends, Cait, wanted me to come to her house in the evening for a Super Bowl party.
Well Sunday morning I woke up very, extremely sick. I decided to leave right away to see if I could make it home before things got too bad. I barely made to the next town over before I realized that there was no way I could make the entire trip home by myself. So I drove back to Ru's, planning to stay there until I got better.
When Cait found out I couldn't come that night, she got angry. I don't even think she believed that I was sick. I called and left her voicemail apologizing, but I never heard anything from her. Usually we get to hang out one weekend a month. It used to be a lot more, until I started visiting Ru a lot. And I'm sure she resents that. But I always try and make sure that I don't ignore her when she talks to me and that I give her my time whenever I am home.
Next, my boss finds out that I am sick and can't make it in on Monday. Her response? No matter how sick I am, I am required to come in anyways for a few minutes to discuss something with her that is very important.
I am losing my mind at this point.
So on a last minute decision, I make the trip home while deathly ill. I threw up at a Welcome Center on the state border, but I did make it. I went through Hell and back because of my job, and my boss. But at this point, I was so unhappy and worn down and discouraged that I decided I didn't want my job anymore. For two years I worked my ass off at that place while being severely underpaid and with little to no compensation. And this is how I was repaid. Up until that point, I was willing to hang on to my job, no matter how unhappy I was, until I left home and moved in with Ru. But after being forced to travel 200+ miles with a crippling fever and upset stomach, I wasn't having anymore.
So around lunch time on Monday, I made it into work, still very sick, to find out what was so important that I had to risk my health for. Turns out, my boss wanted to 'let me go' because she knew I wasn't happy there anymore. She also tried to throw in some BS about me not getting work done because of that--but I counteracted that with a point that I had gotten done three websites in one week, a personal record for me. That shut her up.
I told her I wasn't happy there, that I hadn't been for a while, because of how badly in disarray things were at the company. She asked me what she should do. I told her that it was her decision, not mine, because my mind had already been made up for a while.
At that point, I both quit and got 'fired' at the same time.
So now I am without a job. Never fear though, I still have a bunch of freelance jobs coming in that I'll be making money off of. And tomorrow night, I have an interview to possibly babysit for a family for five days a week.
But, I got Ru sick. And he missed a bunch of class time. I feel horrible and personally responsible for that. :(
And to top things off, the most I have heard from Cait since she shut me out on Super Bowl day was a message on Facebook asking me what happened to my job, as I changed it to say 'Freelance Web Developer' instead of working at my company.
All I can say in my defense is that I give my all and everything I have to the people I care about and the job I love. I can be selfish, yes, but I almost never intentionally put myself first. This is just further proof that sometimes no matter how hard you try, things will still go to shit. And that in the end, you will find out who your true friends are, and who will always be by your side.

|Today has been so theraputic. I definitely think (or, at least, hope) that I will start this week off feeling refreshed.
What have I done today? V1D30 G4M3ZZZZ.
[for those who are unfamiliar with leet speak, that says 'video games.' Teehee]
Ru-chan has a PS3 and I have a Wii and a 360 that I switch out and leave at his place intermittanly. This week is the 360, so I was playing Halo: Reach while Ru-chan was playing Black Ops.
There is something that is just so satisfying about blowing not-so-helpless aliens to smithereens. And listening to their little alien gibberish is oh-so-cute. I told Ru-chan that I wanted to adopt a Covenant Grunt as a pet. Hahaha.
And to make it even better, I was doing it in the company of my beloved Ru, who was also enjoying blowing people up on PSN. I love watching him play Team Deathmatch and Free for All so much that I think Black Ops will be my next game for my 360.
Anyhow, he's at work right now, so I'm using my spare time to catch up with MyO homies. How's everyone doing?
Tonight I'll probably be spending time with Ru-chan's crazy room mates until he gets off work at 1:30am. Crazy Joe will probably be tripping on weed and salvia again (and possibly alcohol), so that in itself should provide ample entertainment for the night. >_>;
A13: I love what I do, I just hate the company I'm with, because of how disorganized we are and all of the problems we've been having. I've been with this company since I graduated college two years ago and I'm hoping to stick it out with my current employer until I move out of my parents place and Ru-chan and I get a place together. But if things keep continuing the way they are, I don't know how much longer I'll have a job. :(
DFD33: Or we could just take over Kaiba Corp. >_>;
Belinda: I WISH. Even better, I wish money didn't matter or exist. Life would be so much less stressful. #_#
Fuz: Thanks *huggles* ^_^
BritLaw: Yeah, I'm slowly starting to adapt to the no-heat thing. And I actually prefer Winter over Summer. As long as I have someone to warm me up at the end of the day...teehee.

My toesies are FREEZING! >_
|*grabs some fluffy socks*
There. That's slightly better.
Anyhow...hello everyone! So happy to see all of your bright and smiling faces! (Okay, that sounded really lame...)
This week and last week have been HORRIBLE. My job is going to shit. It's too long of a story to put into a post, but to sum it up, the company that I work for is in jeopardy, to say the least. Our graphic designer (whom I love very much) found a job that pays a LOT more. So now it is just me, the developer, my boss, and our new graphic designer who doesn't know what he's doing.
And to top it all off...I don't even really like working there that much anymore. Which is a whole other can of worms that I'm not going to get into.
All of this is making me feel very blah and weird and not like myself. And I don't like that. Because I feel like I am being a nuisance to my dear boyfriend Ru. (Not his real name...gotta protect his identity!)
I'm at his apartment right now for the weekend. I had to get away. I escaped yesterday afternoon and have felt much better since I've gotten here. I wish I didn't have to go home on Sunday. :(
The only thing I hate about being here is that it's so damn cold. Neither Ru-chan or his room mates EVER turn on the heat here because no one wants to pay the bill. Gah.
I'm going to go jump under the covers before I become an ice cube! O_O

You say you want a revolution...
|That's right. I'm here to start a MyO Revolution.
Who: Anyone and everyone who has loved MyO since the very beginning, and/or those who still visit and update their site frequently.
What: A "cause" to bring back the old MyO...to revive it from the desolate, barren, empty place that it is now.
Where: Uh, MyO of course. ^_^;
Why: Because I, and I know many other people, do not like the new TheO, want MyO to be the way it was when they first joined. A place where you can find and easily make friends. A place where you can be yourself. A place that doesn't necessarily revolve around contests and fan submissions. A place that is fun, relaxed...and simple. ^_^
How: It is my goal to find everyone on MyO who still updates frequently, and befriend them. If we all band together, it's sure to achieve something. Maybe not a whole lot, but it's a start. TELL ALL OF YOUR FRIENDS ON MYO!
More will be added to this post as time progresses...I'm going to add a permalink to the top of my site so people can keep coming back for updates.
I'm excited; we can do this! ^__^
