I am(will be)…employed

with one comment

As all of you know, I have been looking for work.
Nothing to great, just something simple that will bring in a little cash flow, and help me pay to finish my degree.
Many of you have been praying for roughly a month or more, and that has been greatly appreciated.
I had an interview on Thursday, in which they then turned around and asked for a second interview on Friday.
After two awesome interviews(because I’m confident that I interview extremely well), they offered me the position.
Of course the position is only mine once I pass my drug screen.
ANNND….did you know that some businesses use strands of hair to test for drugs and not the ole urin sample.
So while I’m already going bald slowly, they went on and cut some more of my hair off.
Anyhow, I shall pass with flying colors.
I’m sure you all are wondering who my new employer is.
Well, here ya go. Meet my new employer…
hondaHonda Motors…The Power of Dreams.

Anyone need a car??

Every Saturday is similar for me.
I sleep in a little bit.
Get up, watch some Sportscenter over a bowl of cereal.
Clean up the house.
And then it hits.
The reminder of the dreadful trip to the grocery that I have to take.
While I love Meijer…
Especially due to the fact that they have EVERYTHING for a low price.
I just simply hate shopping for groceries.
I always seem to forget something or get something I don’t need.
Grocery shopping on Saturday simply ruins my Saturday midday.

What do you do on Saturday that just plain SUCKS!

I was bored this afternoon, so I surfed through YouTube…

Laughing is said to prolong life.
Laughter is certainly a positive God created ability.

When’s the last time you laughed this hard?

Job Interview II

leave a comment »

Tomorrow I go for another job interview.
It’s a second employer, not the same as the first.

Prayer would be sweet!

The first interview I went on a few weeks back went really well actually.
I suppose it just wasn’t what God had planned.
Hoping tomorrow’s interview goes just as well, but perhaps the timing will match God’s.
It’s weird, I actually really enjoy interviewing.

What is something weird you enjoy?

The job interview went great! I have a second interview tomorrow morning at 11:30, with the same company, but a different person. Pray away please.

date night update

with 4 comments

Tonight I took Allison out to celebrate her birthday.
We don’t get to do the romantic scenes too often, so tonight I took her to Houlihan’s.
If you have never been there, go.
It’s one of our favorite restaurants to go to.
Great atmosphere, and amazing food.

As the last post stated, Allison believed we were staying in and that I was cooking dinner for her.
The truth is, I care about her too much to cook for her.

Anyhow, the evening was great.
She was surprised…pleasantly I must say.
Dinner was great, and so was the food.

I am madly in love with her, it’s true.

Tell me something, anything. I don’t care what it is. Just spill your guts about something.

Root Canal take II

with 4 comments

If you follow me on Twitter, you have heard.
(If you don’t follow me, now is a good time to start: @vagabondrunn)
I hate the dentist.
It’s true.
I don’t care if he did get an award for being the town’s “Finest” in 2008.
I just DO NOT like going to the dentist.
Last monday I went for a routine Root Canal
One thing I’ve learned over the years is that when it comes to going to the dentist and myself, nothing is ever routine.
They got in there, told me there would be NO pain.
There was.
I was to raise my hand if I felt pain, which turned into me about raising my hand so fast that I punched the ole’ doc in the face.
What it turned into was me having an infection in my gums, so they couldn’t finish. They told me to take these meds and come back a week later. A “routine” 2 hour procedure now turned into a 170+ hour procedure.
Seriously, I HATE the dentist.

On a lighter note.
I received an email this afternoon from @rjschaefer with this photo of one of the students in the church turned into a Dialogue Promo…
(Just a side note to the promo; It is by no means a literal statement. It is the words that came out of the students mouth, which in return was used as a humor promo for Dialogue. No harmful or put-down type intentions were meant)

What is it that you just HATE to do??

Welcome 2009

with 2 comments


And so it begins.
The beginning of a fresh start.
2008 has without a doubt had it’s share of terrible times and amazing times.
It’s weird, because at one point, I would have said that 2008 would go down as my least favorite year of all time.
Looking back now, and really considering all the hard times compared with the amazing new beginnings, I can only say that 2008 is a year that will go down as the year that defined and paved the path for the rest of my life.
It was a year that I consider to share the best and the worst of my life.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy that 2008 is over.
Easily happy.
I am definitely looking forward to what 2009 has in store for her and me…
And lucky you, you get to read all about it right here at Run’n Like A Vagabond.

Now you tell me…What is one thing you loved about 2008?
