Off-topic: Please describe your job to help others choose one.


I just started a new community, aboutmyjob, where I invite all of you to post your thoughts about your current or past jobs. I'm hoping my community will help young people to answer that very difficult question "What do I want to be?".

Please check out the description via the link above. If you want to post, there's no need to join the community, you can do so right away.

Thanks in advance for sharing, and helping.

When college means everything to you, and all of your friends are going back to school, it hurts. The fact that I'm not going because I can't afford it really hits at home. Sure, I'm giving lessons at the local music store, and was asked to join the Brazil Community Band, and Depauw's Tiger Pep Band. It's not the same.

on a lighter note... dad just tried to leave to go to blockbuster, without his cane, wallet, and keys..haha

I just needed to vent.

Sorry I haven't been around for the past couple weeks....2 back to back band camps. Much fun!

Anyway....I just wanted to know your thoughts/opinions on "long distance relationships". Any experiences or advice? I met this really cool guy and we really hit it off....we have so much in common and he's extremely genuine.

He lives 1-1.5 hours away, which really doesn't seem like a lot, but I have no idea what it would be like. I've never been in any kind of "distance" relationship before and have no idea if I can go without seeing him for a longer time than I'm used to.

Anyway, just comment if you have anything to say/advice/anything at all! Thanks!

An update

Just a little update from my first and last post. I said I would update when I took action and I have.

(for those who dont rememeber... I had a little encounter with a doctor while being engaged to another man last month and was in dire need of help)
The full story

Anyway, I left my fiancee Rob shortly after that post due to irreconcilable differences. Nothing ever got started with Sam the doctor, and I am now on the onset of a new relationship with another male. Hopefully this time around I will take my time and not rush off like I did with Rob. Hopefully I will also not meet a hot, rich doctor again =D (or maybe I wish I will???)

Emily Shake told me all of this stuff tonight at work. I am still in shock. and I am very, upset.

God bless her family.

Her and I werent the best of friends but we always bickered at each other in High School. Ya know, just jokingly and what-not. I am going to miss her.

What inspires/motivates you?
Music. When the band plays really strongly and I feel it behind me. Genuinely caring people. Reading. A perfect day with a nice breeze and just enough sunlight. Orange, purple, pink skies.

What's your favorite band/musical artist and why?
Michelle Branch at the moment. I love Hotel Paper and she's so talented.

What small thing makes you happy?


I can't stand my mom sometimes and she drives me up the wall!!! I've been home since 11 today and already she's pitching a fit.

I try explaining to her that me, Shelby and Whit are all buying a few fireworks for tonight and she has a stick up her ass and told me "sometimes I don't want to be your mom". I try not to be phased when she says stuff like that, but it really does hurt. I haven't even been home for an entire day and already I want out as fast as I can. I'm so glad I have 2 more band camps left and then our school marching band camp.

Band trips are seriously like therapy. At my house, they all sit around and yell at me for always wanting to do stuff....even if it is just simply going to the gym and stuff that costs little or no money. I'm one of those people that wants to make the most of every moment and not let it go to waste. At band camps, I connect with so many people that feel the same way and also use the camps as their "escape". They're the people that will stay up till 3 am and talk and they're the people that will do wild and crazy things with me.

I miss it already. I feel unwanted here and I don't want to be here either. I'm going to leave in a few minutes....even if it is just driving around aimlessly. I can't stand her sometimes and I KNOW she can't stand me.

Bah!!! I want to be happy and I won't let anything stop me. Today should be fun! I don't know why she has a frickin stick up her ass!

    When I'm With You-Simple Plan

my 1st post in here...hello friends.

What inspires/motivates you?
Songs. Stars. Sunrises (which I rarely, rarely catch). Other people.

What's your favorite band/musical artist and why?
I've got no favorite, but Norah Jones' voice is still stuck in my head. There's a rawness to her singing that connects with me.

Write your favorite quote or lyrics:
"My love is a fever, longing still for that which longer nurseth the disease."

Would you prefer to be: hatefully remembered or completely forgotten?
