You know Chat Roulette? The place where you can video chat with people or penises? Well, Brazen Careerist just launched it’s own roulette, without the penises. Networking Roulette is a 3 minute chat session with people all over the hot social network, Brazen Careerist. There is no video so you have to hold your own with your words or your chat partner might “next” you. Read the rest of this entry »

It’s beginning to look a lot like…

CHRISTMAS!!!!! I don’t know if I said this, but I really like Christmas time. It’s a great time for giving and I like to give. I HATE trying to find gifts though. I usually go overboard because I want to find just the perfect gift for the person.

This year, it was easy for me to get something for the bf. I got him 2 Roots shirts. The Roots are our favorite band/hip hop group. We’ve been to like 4 of their shows in our travels. Everytime we see them though, we never have cash to buy shirts. So I ordered them online. Quick and easy. We ended up opening gifts last night because we couldn’t wait to share them. He loved the shirts! I was excited about that.

I was excited to find that he got me a GPS! I’m forever getting lost so this was the perfect gift for me. I got so lost moving from VA to NY that I ended up on the Jersey Turnpike when I was supposed to be 3 hours west of it. How I did this…I have no clue. Google maps failed me for sure that day.

On another topic but kinda along the same lines, I was unemployed for a long time. I graduated college, went to work for a company in the OBX for the summer, moved in with the bf in VA for awhile and then started working at a temp agency. I worked with them until about December of 07 then the position was over. It was about Christmastime anyway so I figured, I would start looking again at the start of the year. Well my bf and I come back from our respective families the day after Christmas. We show each other the gifts and then we go out to lunch. We come back from lunch and our place has been robbed. Bye Bye Christmas gifts :( It was also goodbye to our electronics, cash, and to my bf’s Master’s Thesis that he had been working on for months plus all of his research. Thank goodness he had just backed up the data on his Jump drive a few weeks before but still. So…we were freaked out to say the least so we were able to move into a hotel while the BF broke his lease.

While we lived in a hotel for a few months, I was unemployed. I was looking for jobs in Charlotte and in Norfolk but wasn’t having much luck at all. BF moved to Charlotte for awhile while I moved in with my mom. She pretty much let me mooch off of her for 3 months. I don’t know who could put up with my unemployed butt for 3 months. This is the reason why if I won a Sear’s Gift card worth $100 I would get her this Sears # 04421723000. It’s a Journey Diamond Swirl Pendant. She means a lot to me and she took care of my butt when she didn’t have to. I’m finally employed so I got her some Yankee Candle stuff this Christmas since I can’t quite afford super nice jewlery yet!
There is this contest from Sears where they are giving away a $100 gift card. I found out about it by reading this blog: http://table4five.net/2008/12/16/win-a-100-sears-gift-card-and-grant-a-wish/
Happy Reading!
