Finally a breather... And Number 8

Finally a breather! First weekend in a while that I've had to myself to do whatever my heart desired. I suppose it's more of a well-earned break from work as Monday starts the remainder of the Fall busy season. I spent Saturday on my butt, watching tv and scrapbooking. And Sunday I went with Tabs and Rex to Clear Creek Gun Range in League City and shot some guns.

This Sunday was the first time I had ever shot a gun. It was SO much fun! At one point I even got the giggles from how much fun it was. Rakesh and I are so going to start collecting - got to start saving! The above are some pics from Sunday. Rakesh shooting the XD. Me with the .357 and Rex and Tabs with the AR15. The AR15 is probably why I'm sore today in my shoulders but I had a blast! Tabs promises more gun dates and I can't wait!

Quagmire's my Idol.

Sick of stupid people. Wish I could be as on point with people when they cross my path.

Well said.

NEW FAVORITE SONG: I Love College By Asher Roth

Gave a kid on his way to his first year at college some advice recently and it had me reminiscing about those crazy days. Came across this song today and it made me laugh.

My advice, in case you were wondering: "Buy your books online. Dont waste money on study guides. If you're staying in the dorms, dont hide your liquor in the closet thats the first place the CA looks. Study hard but play hard too. It'll be some of the best years of your life. And Thai BBQ fajitas and Margaritas at the Hula Hut (Chuy's) are awesome!" LOL I think I deserve an award for this amazing gift of advice-giving I have. :D

Ya know, when you think about it, jumping off the building sounds fun!

Work is getting to me. I can tell because friends are inviting me to jump out of planes and I'm actually considering it. It actually sounds fun. A non-stressed non-over-worked Margaret is so cautious. She'd never consider these proposals. Today... jumping sounds fun. Like I might really enjoy the wind against my face.

Speak it into truth!

"Speak it into truth" kinda comes from a superstitious origin. It was always told to me in the "Never say you can't do something b/c you'll speak it into truth."

I have been giving thought to my last blog post. So with it constantly being on my mind I can't help but work it into my daily dialogue. I feel like I have started to speak new truths about my life and where I will take it. I do not want to hold my tongue and never act on what I'd like to do. So I'd like your feedback as well on "the options."

-Diagnostic Medical Sonographer.
Reasonable option. More education. Work in the medical field, which Rakesh thinks I'm fully capable of doing. Makes the same amount of money as my current job. But is definitely just as time demanding. It's something I've done a lot of looking into because of Melinda. She's been saying she's wanted to do this for a while now. Looking at the requirements, I cant help but think how easy it'd be to knock it out myself.

-Rock star/Actress.
Probably the most unreasonable idea yet. But I know I'd enjoy it! I've never acted before much less sang in front of people. It may also just be the one thing everyone wants to do, so I do too. But it's gotta be like the easiest gig in the world. Hours may be crazy. Income is nonexistent. But I would do different things. I think I like this option because I'd like to be more outgoing and I'd like to feel like I lived at the end of my days.

-Loan Officer.
Could probably make the same amount of money. Less hours for sure. Minimal additional education required. Reasonable option if I can find a place to work. Don't know if I could handle dealing with individuals seeking loans one-on-one, but if that's not part of the job- GREAT!

-Figure out a way to make one of my crafts profitable.
Not easily done. Not much money in it, unless I figure out something great. Need an idea....

-Write a book.
I'd like to do this just so I can say "I've done that." My life, as I told a friend recently, is a "clusterf*$k of madness" so I really wouldn't know how to write something happy but maybe someday? What to write about is the question.

-Go to Law School.
Could probably be a tax attorney. Being a lawyer would be cool. But again the hours. Though the pay would be higher. So worth it?

Have no idea what the next step would be but it sounds thoroughly my speed. It'd be stressful and at times tedious but I think knowing I was making some kind of impact on the world I'd be OK with that.
