Stargate SG-1 - My first fandom

Stargate SG-1 turns 20 years old this week, and Gateworld has posted a tribute video on their site. Makes me want to go back and watch it again. Wish I had the time.

It finally happened

Well, the Photobucket bomb finally hit me. Both my journals probably look crazy now, but especially my LJ. At least my user icons and gifs are stored at my LJ. Everything else is on Photobucket. If I had the time I'd go and try and remedy that, but I don't. I have a job now!

About that... I am an assistant manager at one of the local Zaxby's restaurants. I've worked mostly nights so far, which is from either 5 or 6 pm to 3-ish am. Luckily, I was off today, and work days for the next 2 days. I close Saturday night, and I'm off on Sunday. I really like the job, but I am exhausted all the time. I'm hoping that I won't have as many nights on a regular basis. It's really draining.

That's it for now. I've had a long day, but I got to hang out with family, which was great. I have to get up early in the morning, so I better sign off for now. Later!

The move is done...

As the title says, we've finished the move. Now, we're just trying to unpack. I didn't realize how much stuff we had. At least we have room for it now, instead of having to put some in storage. This is the first time since we got here on Tuesday that I've had to time to really relax and get online.

Also, I have a job! It's for Zaxby's (where I was working back in Mississippi), but this time, I'll be a manager. I'm a bit nervous, but feel that this will be a great opportunity for me. I like the other managers I've met, and I think I'll like it at this store. Wish me luck!

Well, that's it for now. I'll update again soon.

One door closes and another one looks to be opening.

Well, New Jersey isn't going to happen. We just couldn't afford it, and we kept hitting roadblock after roadblock. It just got to be too much. So, like the title says, that door has closed.

There seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel, though. We are moving back home, sorta. We will going back to North Louisiana, about halfway between both our families. Hubby is going to complete his teacher certification that he started years ago before he started his Doctorate, and it looks like he'll be getting money from the school there to do it. Our moving timeline will be the same, but we will only be going 3 hours away.

This is a huge relief, even though it kinda feels like we're stepping back in time. The school is where hubby started his undergrad back in 1995. The first time around for him was not a good experience, but most of the people that gave him grief back then have moved on.

I feel, in my heart, that this will be a positive move forward for us. It won't be as big as an adventure as New Jersey would have been, but I think this could be a good first step for something else later on down the line.

Please help!

The hits keep coming. I swear there is some conspiracy going on. Someone really doesn't want us to succeed. We are determined to make things work, though. We will move to New Jersey if it kills us.

In an effort to try and get more help, my mom has revamped the GoFundMe page. It is now much more serious and touts hubby's accomplishments and what we hope to accomplish. Any help is appreciated, even if it is just a share.

Help Kristi and Tracy get to New Jersey

At this point, our move pretty much hinges on the money we get from this page. Apparently, I've gotten to the point of begging.

Not sure what to title this...

I hope y'all don't mind me venting a little. It seems to be cathartic.

I feel like the whole world is conspiring against us. It seems that we just can't catch a break recently. First, my hubby's hours are cut at work, then it takes me forever to find a job and when I do, it's only part time, and then my hours are cut back a lot. Our parents have helped where they can, but it's getting harder and harder for them to do so. Then, the incident other night happened that I talked about in my last post. Now, my car is starting to run hot, and I'm worried now that it'll start overheating on me. It is 17 years old, so not totally unexpected that it'll start having issues, but now is possibly the worst time for it.

On top of all that, we are trying to plan this move to New Jersey, and there is just no money. We can't figure it out. Our last hope was the GoFundMe page that my mom set up, but it kinda fell flat and we only got a small fraction of what we were hoping for. Truthfully, we weren't expecting to get the full amount, but we were hoping for a little more. Here's the link again if anyone wants to take a look.

Help me and my hubby move to New Jersey

I just really wish that the whole world didn't revolve around money. Sure would make things much easier. Why can't we live in the Star Trek universe?

What is wrong with people?

I have been contemplating all day whether to post about this or not. I decided, for my own sanity, to post it.

Last night, around 9:30 I think, I was in my bathroom and heard a small tap from the window (which is small and about 8 feet off the ground). I looked up and noticed the top half of a cell phone (the camera lens) pointed into my bathroom. It took me a moment to realize what it was, because it was so unexpected. It disappeared shortly after.

At first, I was angry and I wanted to run out and try to catch whoever it was. My hubby stopped me though, and called the sheriff's office. They sent a deputy right over. He looked around and noticed that there were some cinder blocks that had been stacked under my window. Even so, it still would have been quite a reach to get to the window. He said that he didn't see anything, but that he would do a foot patrol, and then for the next several nights, they would have deputies do foot patrols through the area to see if they can catch someone.

As soon as he left, my hubby covered the window with tin foil, and he moved the cinder blocks away from the back of the apartment.

It wasn't until this morning that it really hit me what had happened. I called management and wasn't able to speak to the landlord, but I left a message with the receptionist detailing everything that happened. She said that she would get him the message immediately and that he would call me back. My hubby called about an hour later and told me that he had also called and that the landlord was going to call me. Guess what?! He never called! This doesn't actually surprise me, but that's a whole other can of worms that I'd rather not get into right now.

My hubby is going to keep calling until something is done. The deputy mentioned how dark it is back there, and "recommended" that there needed to be more light back there.

I then told some of my neighbors that I'm friendly with. I think it was the repeated rehashing of events that really made it hit home what had happened. I started to wonder:

- How long has this been going on?
- Were they taking photos or video?
- What has happening to the photos/video?
- What have they seen me doing?

I'm really freaked out and upset. I could barely concentrate on anything today. When my hubby finally got home from work today, I started crying. I'd held it in most of the day. He has been so great through this.

I really hope they find who it was. I always thought I was safe here, but now, I don't feel so safe anymore.

What was that?

I've had a few days to think on what I posted a few days ago, and what was I thinking? I can't believe I spewed all of that out at everyone. It's no wonder no one has replied or even acknowledged it. My head was definitely not in a good place, and it's still not really, but I feel better.

I've decided to go ahead and post a link to the GoFundMe page that my mom set up. It's really cute. It's from my dog Pete's POV. I've wondered if that might be why it hasn't gotten many hits. I think it's adorable.

Help Pete's Mom (me) and Dad (my hubby) get to New Jersey!

If you can help, great! If not, no worries, but please share it. I would really appreciate it. Thank you!

RL can be amazing and absolutely terrible all at the same time.

So, it's been a long time since I just posted something other than graphics, or movie trailers. I haven't really, up till now, felt I had much to share. Now, though, I'm in the need to share some real life news, and frustrations it brings. I'm also in the need of help, but I am very reluctant to ask for it.

A few months back, my hubby got the job offer of a lifetime. He would be working for a company that takes care of it's employees, and it would be doing something that he has only ever dreamed of doing. See, he is a tuba player and teacher, and he has thought for many years that he would end up getting a teaching job at a college or something similar. That would have been fine with us, as it's what he's trained for a long time to do. His biggest dream for the long haul has been to play in a big orchestra, but that's nearly impossible to do. Well, this job is working for a music company, where he will be learning to repair and actually build tubas, as well as sell and play them on a daily basis. He would get to travel and will probably also get to teach as well. It's a dream come true for him, and something we are really excited about. Now for the problem.

This job is located in New Jersey, which is really far away from here, and has a much higher cost of living than here. We have had some major financial issues lately, and as of right now, we don't have near enough money to even attempt the move. It's so frustrating because, once he starts getting paid (and I find a job and start getting paid as well), we should be okay, but it's the getting there and getting set up and started that is what's holding everything up. The job is already his, we just have to get there. It's causing us so much stress right now, that we're getting to the point where we want to give up. My family has helped, and is trying to help as much as they can, but it's not nearly enough. I even got a job here to try and take up some of the financial slack, but it's doesn't pay much. This is all so frustrating.

This is a chance for us to really, finally start our lives and make a living for ourselves. It's the first real chance we've had to be on our own and live. I just see it all slipping through our fingers. I've been praying and hoping and wishing for a miracle.

So this is what I've been dealing with for the past several months, and it's only getting more frustrating. My mom even set up a GoFundMe page for us, but it's hasn't gotten much traction. I'm reluctant to post the link here, because of all the recent uproar with LJ, and I have no idea who will actually read this (this is crossposted from DW). Also, I'm just not that comfortable asking for money. Mostly, I'm just asking for advice and just to talk about what is going on. If anyone would like to see the GoFundMe page, just let me know, and I'll send the link. I'm not really expecting much, but even just a share might get it in front of more people.

Well, that's probably much more than I've said to anybody in a long time. If anyone has any questions, or just wants to talk, I'm here. Thanks for reading.

OMG!! What did I just watch?! LMAO!!

So, my hubby walks into the room and says that I need to go watch this video on YouTube. I'm easily amused, and this definitely amused me. I think it'll probably amuse most of you too, especially if you're a Star Wars fan. Enjoy!!

Job hunting sucks!

Just what the title says. Job hunting sucks... especially when I don't have a lot of experience doing it. Most of the jobs I've held in the past were found for me through an employment agency. I also haven't had a full time job in over 6 years. I hope I'm doing it right.
