I'm going to look at three new places tomorrow.

Two in Brooklyn, one in Manhattan. The first one is a room in an apartment share with a lesbian couple. Kinda in a *mildly* shady neighborhood, but the rent is cheap and they seem cool. The second is a loft in Bed-Stuy...what once was just a few years ago the scariest neighborhood in NYC but is now becoming increasingly gentrified and artsty. The potential roommate sounds cool here too and there is enough space to bring my marimba here...

And the third...the place in Manhattan. I want this place so hardcore bad. First of all, it's in Manhattan, and Manhattan rent is OUTRAGEOUS and this neighborhood (Washington Heights) is one of the last few reasonably-priced neighborhoods to live. The area used to be extremely dangerous, right up there with Bed-Stuy and Harlem, but much like Harlem, is now becoming a very hip area in which to live. Coincidentally, Fort Tryon Park is a few blocks away and I love love LOVE the Cloisters! I really really like this area a lot actually, it's really pretty. It's only a matter of time before it's discovered and every hipster in the 5 boroughs is trying to get a place. There are gorgeous views of the Hudson and George Washington Bridge.

Anyway, chatted with one of the potential roommates tonight, he's super cool; a DJ, travels a lot, all in all, it's a very relaxed, chill roommate environment. The place has wood floors I'm told, I can't wait to see! All I want is a cool neighborhood and wood floors! Obviously good roommates are must too! Soooo tomorrow evening, can't wait to go!

a little of this, a little of that, a little what-have-you [Jan. 6th, 2008|03:27 pm]

I've been on hiatus for awhile. Essentially, I'm working in NYC, staying in an airline crash pad with mostly pilots. I don't have a permanent place of residence at the moment; I mostly live out of my suitcase. I love NYC though and I hope to have an actual residence within a few months. Housing is so expensive in NYC and I'm always out traveling anyway so the crash pad is fine for now. I consider myself a resident of the city. Moving on...

After several months of being a fat-ass, I have renewed my interest in diet and exercise. Basically, I've been eating like a fat girl and it has taken its toll on my body...in the form of 10 pounds. I'm told that I really don't look much different, albeit just not as many bones sticking out of chest. I can tell however; the fact that a pair of my pants that were falling off my ass in March are now nearly impossible to get into with all the fat on my hips. I'm a ridiculous 115 lbs. That's unacceptable really. I don't *think* I look that large, and people are always saying 'ooh you're so tiny blah blah' but still. The scale doesn't lie. The fat on my chin isn't lying either.

Anyway, Stackers and a renewed interest will change all of this. I just did some exercises with weights and my legs feel awesome. Things must change asap....

In other news, I watched the debates last night and it only served to further my support of Clinton. I'm not an Obama-hater, I just feel that Clinton has the leadership skills and experience that we need in a candidate. Edwards and Obama are both great though, so we are lucky to have strong candidates competing for Democratic nomination. Anyway, Hillary was on her a-game last night...

Next item: I have a cold. Much thanks to the SFO-based flight attendant who shared her illness when we were flying New Year's eve. My crew and I had afternoon drinks at the hotel bar and the next day this girl was ill and she had lost her voice. Two days later I woke with a sore throat. Not cool. Benadryl isn't working.

I'm on vacation actually. Chilling with the Oklahomies. The weather is perfect here, 70 degrees. I love it.

Domicile update!! [Jun. 19th, 2007|09:19 pm]

Okay, so last night I received an email from United stating that they had space available for their August training classes. I opted to change training classes from July 30th which would base me out of IAD to join an August 27th class that would place me in the JFK based domicile.

I think I made a good long-term decision (even though it will affect my seniority) to change because JFK seems like much better domicile than IAD. A big positive aspect for me is that I won't need a car in NY whereas in DC I would have needed to drive so I'm super excited about switching my training class to August! The waiting sucks however, because I'm ready to start!

United Airlines! [Jun. 2nd, 2007|10:55 am]
stuff and nonsense
I had my second interview today at United in Chicago and I was given the flight attendant job on a conditional basis! It's conditional only because they still have to run background checks, check references and get the results back from my drug testing. Provided all is well (as it should be), I will start 7 weeks training in Chicago July 30.

I've already been assigned my domicile, I will be in D.C. working out of Dulles, Reagan and Baltimore-Washington airports and I'll get to go on flights to Europe regularly!!

I am extremely tired now.

First step to the future...I graduated yesterday with a degree in Applied Sociology: option in Environment, Population and Resource Allocation, minor in a Geography (and eventually music since I only need one class to finish that).

Teach for America [Mar. 22nd, 2007|04:21 pm]

[Current Mood |accomplishedaccomplished]

So, I applied for a Recruitment Associate position with Teach for America yesterday, and I received an email this morning from the organization for me to set up a phone interview next week!
I'm so excited, seriously because if I get this job, I will get to live in a real city, think, Chicago or New York!

I also posted my resume on monster.com yesterday and I already had an email from a company in Lincoln, NE as well.

Maybe I won't have to live in a cardboard box after all!

Wish me luck, I'm so excited!!

I tried to bake a cake today for my boyfriend, kind of a nice Valentine's thing. It failed miserably.

But that's okay, I just need some practice, soon Martha Stewart will be jealous of my abilities.

I am now back in Stillwater.

I brought my marimba to school yesterday, because I miss playing and while I still have keys to the Seretean, I rarely go there anymore, and it will be nice to have something to play on late at night when I get bored. Moreover, I am extremely proud of myself because I carried all the pieces into my building (some of them were quite large) and put it together all by myself! I feel so self-sufficient!

Here is a photo that showcases my superior mechanical skills ;).......

Quachita Mountains [Nov. 24th, 2006|08:46 pm]
stuff and nonsense
Steve and I traveled to the Quachita Mountains in SE Oklahoma for Thankgiving with my psycho family. Overall, it went well and this morning we decided to be uber-redneck and rode an ATV up to the top of a mountain. Now, understand that this Oklahoma, and our mountains aren't as impressive as others, but it's still a nice area. It was also nice to see how my parents are spending my inheritance...

Quachita National Forest

my parents cabin, one mile from the national forest. It looks small, but outside looks are deceiving. It has three large bedrooms, one of which is a huge loft, full kitchen, living area, breakfast nook and outdoor stone patio. It's really nice, and I do hope that someday it becomes mine...
