Mid-Week Celebrations!

It’s Wednesday once more, and that means it is time for mid-week celebrations!

Here we go!

1.  I bought two video games yesterday, Final Fantasy Tactics A2 and Final Fantasy Theaterhythm (which some of you may have read about already).  Not realizing how short the plot was for FF Theaterhythm, I have already finished it!  Now, on to getting perfect scores on every single song! For those of you who do not know, FF Theaterhythm is basically Guitar Hero using Final Fantasy music and made for the Nintendo 3DS console.  I already have four characters that will be at level 100 before midnight tonight!

2.  I get to have lunch with my mentor on Friday! (that is, unless I end up working-BUT FOOD AND SEEING MY MENTOR IS HAPPENING IN THE NEAR FUTURE) This will have happened TWICE in one month, which never happens!

3.  My dog Daisy has begun to do a new incredibly cute thing!  When potty training her years ago, we would always get really excited when she peed outside and tell her how she was such a good girl.  My sister told her earlier today, “I peed!” and Daisy began celebrating and congratulating my sister on her fine accomplishment.  She was waggling her tail furiously as well as giving my sister kisses of celebration after pouncing on her.  So, of course, you know what everyone has been saying throughout the day after leaving the bathroom…

4.  Since it is summer, all the gas stations/convenience stores in this area sell any size fountain drinks for $1.05 (tax included).   I obtained a Mountain Dew today! This isn’t a particularly special or isolated event, but I was really excited about it today!

5.  I have new non-work shoes! They have soles made of MEMORY FOAM!  This is especially great, as my old pair of non-work shoes have fallen apart and contain much sand from sidewalking.  They are also pretty-with a pink and black pattern!

4.  I included a bonus number 4 on this list because I really like the number 4!

6.   This blog now has 17 followers!  Thank you to everyone who finds these posts entertaining enough to want to read them all the time! All of you are amazing!

Those are my middle-of-the-week celebrations.  Leave a comment with your own middle-of-the-week celebrations so that we can all revel in our accomplishments together! (Seriously, the week someone actually does this, I will probably re-edit the post to include that on the list….or make a separate post….or give a shout-out to them on Thursday)


Mid-Week Celebrations!

This blog is in the middle of it’s third week of life!  I think that is as good of an introduction as any to, you guessed it, this Wednesday’s round of little successes!

Without further ado, let the celebrations begin!

1. Tonight, one of my friends that I had not spent time with in at least a month was like, “Let’s get dinner together!” I agreed!

2. While that last celebration is exciting enough, the same friend later bought me SOUR PATCH KIDS, which I adore.  They were not simply Sour Patch Kids but the Watermelon flavor of Sour Patch Kids!

3. I have decided to begin working on the second Brahms violin sonata!

4. On a related note (yay pun!) my composition project for this month will be the first movement of a string quartet!

5. Even though I was drenched by it yesterday, it has been raining frequently around here and I love the sound of rain!

6. This blog now has 11 followers! Thank you all for deciding it is worth getting updates from on a daily basis!

Those are my middle-of-the-week celebrations.  Leave a comment with your own middle-of-the-week celebrations so that we can all revel in our accomplishments together!

Mid-Week Celebrations!

After a week of failing, we once more return to Wednesday, and everyone knows what Wednesday is about.

Yep, it’s time to celebrate the little successes of the week!

1. This is an encore one, but I now have a job!  My first paid working experience will happen tomorrow! I will also point out that last Wednesday, I was celebrating the world not ending as I went through the application process.  How about that for progress?

2. My parents, being the generous sort of people they are, bought me my first work outfit!  As a bonus, I look pretty spiffy in said outfit!

3. Today, our “grumbly old man” dog, Bandit, jumped up onto my lap and demanded ear scratches and belly rubs! (Normally, I have to do the pet owner thing of, “Come here, Bandit, come here boy! There’s a good doggy…no don’t leave! Don’t walk away!” or the, “I love you very much.” *clings to squirming dog that is trying to escape*)

4. To prevent matters of jealousy, I must also announce that our “wildflower” dog, Daisy, has cuddled with me today, although somewhat more begrudgingly.

5. I am having dinner with my mentor tomorrow! I am sure one day I will blog about him more extensively, but let’s leave it at out of all the people I know and have ever known HE IS MY FAVORITE PERSON after my sister, WHO IS MY REAL FAVORITE PERSON (although we have a sibling agreement that I can refer to my mentor as my favorite person without having to explain the situation).  Anyway, I haven’t seen him in a while SO THIS IS EXCITING! (all caps makes my enthusiasm more convincing, right? Thought so)

6. Today, I had my first cranberry vanilla rootbeer, from Sonic, of the summer.  I also drink this fine specimen of a beverage in the autumn, winter, and spring, but I thought it was worth sharing anyway. If you like rootbeer and were born with a dash of derring-do, go ahead and try it the next time you go there.  If you don’t have a Sonic near you, cry.

7. This blog now has SIX FOLLOWERS.  Some of you have been following for days, and others have been following for…more days.  I find this exciting, as it means there are at least six people out there interested in what I have to ramble on about.  This is nice, as everyone knows there is a fine line between pretending to talk about yourself to others and actually talking about yourself to others. That line is insanity. Thanks for keeping me sane and not leaving me to blab into the void!

Those are my middle-of-the-week celebrations.  Leave a comment with your own middle-of-the-week celebrations so that we can all revel in our accomplishments together!

I’m Cheating Today

As you might have read recently, I am cheating today.  Today’s post will be short.

Today, I failed at remaining unemployed.

After a year of applying at various places and failing to get hired,I I finally have a job!

The job is with a temp agency.  I’ll be doing stuff like serving food at banquets and housekeeping work in hotels whenever there is a shift available.  While it might not be full-time work and it is entry level job, that doesn’t matter.  Why? Because it is mine and I am proud and excited to finally have a place to work at! (so excited, in fact, that any attempt at proper sentence structure has become irrelevant)

Everyone has to start somewhere, and I finally have my start!


In order to not turn today into tomorrow’s post with having only celebratory blog-fire, I will mention one other thing.

I continue to fail at the next chapter of the ear training app. *sigh* One day, though, I will instead be failing at the next chapter.

Until tomorrow, happy failing!

Mid-Week Celebrations!

The start of weeks can be rough.  These beginnings do, after all, contain the infamous event of Mondays as well as two other days of the week.  So, after spending three days working hard to fail with inspiration, Wednesday will be the time for pausing in this endeavor.  Instead, we shall celebrate the little successes.

These are my little successes for this week:

1. I began volunteering at an Equine Therapy Center last week.  I do what is known as sidewalking, meaning I walk beside a horse and, in conjunction with another sidewalker, we make sure the client does not fall off of the horse. Today was the first day I felt comfortable with my duties as a sidewalker and I did not spend the entire time thinking, “DON’T LET THE CLIENT FALL DON’T LET THE CLIENT FALL.”

2. I play the app game “King of Thieves,” which has surprising depth for an app game.  While there are 80 single-player levels, most of the fun comes from its multiplayer mode. The multiplayer mode places you in dungeons of other King of Thieves players, and you steal gems from them in order to increase your loot.  A couple of days ago, I stole a gem valued at 13,810 points, and it is now the most valuable gem I possess!

3. I finished reading a book in three days!

4. I am currently in the process of looking for a job, and I have had to do many things that I am not used to doing.  For example, I do not enjoy talking to people on the phone, but I called back the place I most recently applied to in order to check up on my application. The world didn’t end when I did this!

5. My dogs, in an effort to procure treats from me, have been letting me know that they love me a lot.  To communicate this, they have been sitting on my face when I am lying down on the couch.  I have not suffocated yet! (I had to put a funny one in there….and yes, they have been getting treats)

Those are my middle-of-the-week celebrations.  Leave a comment with your own middle-of-the-week celebrations so that we can all revel in our accomplishments together!
