Yesterday Was Less Than Satisfactory

Writing is the only way that I can truly calm down when I have had a less-than-satisfactory day. Of course, it helps to sip on some 70 proof kahlua while writing. Acid Bath, a metal band, is also good for the wounded soul. Yesterday started out horribly, as I attempted to place some last minute changes on my editing paper. The paper was a train wreck, and I already plan to give my professor a better draft in the future. Acting class was sucktacular because I was the only student negatively criticized in class, in front of everyone. I went to work in my pajamas and kept losing things while labeling books (the only things that I did not suck at work were the people I worked with and the fact that I finished labeling many books). When I went to editing class, I had forgotten my documentation of my visit to the writing center. The professor forgave me because he knew that I went (after all, I get so nervous when I write for him that I would not feel confident in turning in something UNLESS I went there. He knows that about me). I did not help that I went to  my classes without make-up, which is something that I have not normally left the apartment without because I have been trying to advertise my Mary Kay products. Since I am getting a facial today, though, I thought it would be pointless to put on make-up for now.  I also could not give anyone facials yesterday due to my bad mood. Perhaps I will give people facials tomorrow. There is no way that tomorrow will be as bad as yesterday. In fact, today is already better than yesterday, despite the fact that I have to do work for my acting class still. I am excited about going to work in a few minutes and getting a facial at the Beauty Barn in Alliance (2855 S. Union Ave., Alliance, OH 44601).  I also need to do an editing assignment for tomorrow’s class. It looks like my work is cut out for me for the rest of the day.

I am a graduate of the University of Mount Union. I work for ResCare HomeCare as a direct support professional. I was a psychology major and am hoping to get a master's degree in Business Administration with a concentration on healthcare... Somewhere. I am still interested in English and theatre. Writing had always been one of my passions until recently. It takes too much time and effort, which is why I just draw comics now. Believe it or not, drawing comics is easier for me to express myself than writing. I also love animals. When I am not working hard on whatever project I happen to have my hands on, I am at home playing with my animals. I live with two cats named Garfield and Oreo. I also love to listen to all kinds of music, such as The Birthday Massacre, Emilie Autumn, The Cruxshadows, The Cranberries, Celldweller, Emperor, R.E.M., Future Funk Squad, Symphony X, Einherjer, Borknagar, and Nightwish. And I'm married. But don't tell the government. They suck the fun out of it.
