New Iphone 6s

well....I would take a pic of this beautiful machine and then write on blogger through the blogger app. But apple decided to take away blogger from the app store since it's a google product! seriously are we that petty now that you wont let someone use a different companies product because you want me to use you'rs now. 

What is going on. I get it, I know it's all about the product and about money and domination, but come one. Let me choose to use what I like. 

So, to get this wonderful picture of my phone. I had to take it with another phone, and then email it to myself, then download it to this computer, and then I could drag it to blogger. Now when I could have to just taken the picture and then selected it from my phone and then continued to write this dumb blog. 





Now, normally I wouldn't have chosen such a bright color for my case I always go with black because it never gets dirty. But this time, I just thought who cares. I want to have a bright blue case. I loved the color. Who cares if it gets dirty right away, its a case, its going to get dirty and if I don't like it I will buy a different one. But for $40.00 I will not buy another one. LOL I will have this one for a good 4 years. I have had a new phone every 4 years. I think that's pretty good. It is acting up the phone that is, so it was time for a new one. 

New plan- Iphone forever. So I pay $26 more to LEASE my phone, which is fine but I don't know it feels weird knowing that I actually don't own my phone. So how it works is, you pay the $26 extra every month to lease this phone for 12 months, and then you can get the newest phone. so you have the phone for a year. then what do they do with the old phone? or you can keep making payments until you own the phone which would take me almost two years to pay for it. 

So its a good deal anyways, but my contacts and having to transfer everything over to a new phone is a bitch. seriously have to rewrite all new contacts. OH guess what!!!!  I'm just going to text all the contacts information!!!! Hell's YEAH!

It's from Iphone to iphone and I'll just click create new! YES OH YES! ok going to go do that for a while. 

I knew there was an easier way, I just needed to get creative with it! LOL

Humanity

Yesterday a poor soul decided to jump from the I-5 Bridge into the lake. 

Now - my first thought was to chant nam myo ho renge kyo. Yes I am a Buddhist. Obviously this person, thought there was no other way then to take him own life. 

And now I just researched it, he was planning and threatening to Jump but never did. The point here is that he stopped traffic, that is TERRIBLE to begin with. He stopped traffic in both directions for almost 4 hours on a Tuesday night. where it takes me an hour to get home anyways. 

the sad part is, someone I know posted about this on facebook, saying how lucky she was to get over the bridge and then they stopped traffic right behind her and then she said "go suck it I-5 jumper". 

this made me so sad. 1 - you don't know what was actually going on, 2 - this person was on the verge of taking their life

3- Where did humanity and kindness go in this country?

Believe me. I dont have it easy. I work two jobs to barly make it. But I do have a supporting family. I bought a house, I have a car, we have running water and water to drink. Mind you a britta to filter the water through. Three awesome animals. We can eat what we want and work out and buy things when we need it. 

But I'm tired. I'm tired of working all day long getting home at 10pm having to go to bed and then get up again. I don't get to do what I want with my free time because honestly I don't have free time anymore. There is no suck thing as free time with me. Hence why I choose not to have friends because I don't honestly have 30 mins to my self, and when I do I'm sitting on the couch resting my brain and or doing house work or running errands. 

So to hear this, yes If I was stuck in that traffic especially on a Tuesday. Tuesdays are days I don't teach dance and I get to go home early. I would have been pissed, but finding out what happened, I would have changed the way I reacted. I feel sorry for that poor person who needs help or a friend. 

It's just sad to read things like that on the internet. To read other posts, "just let him jump there are boats that can get him". 

It breaks my heart. caring for others doesn't come about anymore.

Dear Sales Rep

Dear Sales rep who has a problem with the way I RUN MY OFFICE,

Every office is ran differently. J  I have trained many OP’s with my systems. Every sales rep thanks me for the systems that are put in place and then they tweak it so it works for their office. I always train every OP with that state of mind.   Systems makes the office run smoothly, and it holds accountability for every person in the office. By having systems, this corrects communication errors.

Here in this office, we use sticky notes because the Sales Reps want to. J  This is what we decided on an office TOGETHER, not because I want or chose to.   I also follow up with an email when tasks are done. This again was decided by the office together as a team so we are all on the same page and everyone knows what got done and what still needs to get done. Here we don’t have any communication issues, and if we do have them, we get together as an office and work together as a team to fix and find a solution that works with everyone.

I’m always chosen to train OP’s because our office is ran so well. All the sales reps here in my office trust me in doing my job, and they know I will get it done no matter what.  We all want the same thing in office, To do well and to sell more.  I am a part of that team.

Just so you know, here in the office everything that is suggested doesn’t always work. We give it a trail period of a few months, and then get back together and tweak the system so it works for OUR office. I get calls from OP’s from all over the US to ask how I do things. I always say this is what we do here and it might not work for your office but you can try.  I always follow up to see what worked for them and if they have any suggestions so I can take those suggestions back to everyone here in the office to make our office a positive awesome working environment.  

I hope you have a wonderful selling day.

First 5 k - Vancouver Couv

So.....First let me just tell you. I hate running. With a passion, HATE IT! But Anetra wanted to do this, and I thought hey ok lets try this. 

So, well I ran...ok jogged the first half mile. then walked. Now let me tell you, for the first two miles, I thought to myself. 

Why the hell do people pay money to run! I mean come on!!!! I mean, I was speed walking and busting my butt, and people were walking faster than me! like passing me like I was just strolling along in high heels. 

So....my legs hurt, its raining, and I'm alone walking with my thoughts. just realizing, how alone I really am. 

I don't like running, so i don't have people walking with me. There are all these people who are in two's and fours and groups doing this together. Anetra took off running because she is runner. So I walked. I couldn't run, I'm not a runner. I do know I will not do that again. I am glad I did it once!
3 miles is alot to do. I mean we did 18 miles in one day at Disneyland. But COME ON it was DISNEYLAND! The happiest place on earth. This was terrible. 

I do have to say, when I saw the mile marker 2, I was so excited to know I only had 1 more mile. I then pushed myself more. But not that much more, I was already pushing as hard as I could. 

I was happy Anetra came back for me to help me finish. I was proud of myself, but man that was hard!

Wedding

So - It's been awhile since I even concentrated on our wedding.

Turns out my cousin is going to be getting Married 1 month to the day after I do.

Well I don't know how that will fly with 1 - my job, since we are planning to take our honey moon right after the wedding, and  2 - Family!!!! I guess we will all make it work. But I just had a feeling that was going to happen.

Turns out my uncle is going to ask my cousin, his nephew to change their wedding date.

Honestly its not like they knew our date. My moms did and my family did but we haen't told everyone yet, we are still trying to figure out where it's going to be so we can send out save the dates.

Which I need to find. That is on the list. WE did sit down and figured out our color scheme and found the invitations we want, but I'm going to make them, and a item to go on our wedding tables.

Now to only find a place we can get married.

I mean we are going back and forth on inviting everyone we want too, or just very close family, and then everyone else to the reception. Wedding are so expensive and I don't understand why when you say you are going to have a wedding everyone jacks up the prices. I mean come on, $2000 to rent out the place that I have to decorate and basically set up and break down myself.

Man even wedding planners are expensive! There are even wedding planners that do just the day of the wedding so you don't have to worry about anything at all, or from the very start. But really who has $30,000 lying around.

WE are working with almost $10,000 budget but guess what, we are also going to use that money for our honeymoon! Now we are saving $6000 on our own in two years, and my mom is going to give us $3000. I wanted to do it all on our own, but we wouldn't get married for another 4 years.

So, ok. But I know we can do this, its the venue and the food that is going to cost the most. I just don't understand why it has to be so much, and so many different options. Sometimes there are two many options which makes you have to do a TON of research, and honestly who has time for that. You think I do, well I don't- well I do if I didn't get any sleep at all, but lately ever since the car accident, I have to get at least 8-10 hours of sleep and I'm still sick.

Anyways - finding and agreeing on a color scheme and invitations is a huge step. We even put in our first order for our wedding!!!! I'm so excited.

Like in love! lol.

so- for now, we are looking for a place to have our party. When I find it, I will tell you all about it. Believe me we have been contacting a ton of places for amounts. we haven't toured anyplace, I'm just not in love with anyplace. And we haven't agreed on what it will look like, so that is probably why we haven't found the place yet.

OH and we decided on our wedding party. :)

YEAH!!!!!

It never ends

There is a reason why my blog is called it never ends because it really doesn't. 

For instance.... My splash gaurd needed to be replaced, well it ripped off completely while I was driving home last night. So I made an appointment time for this morning at 7:40. Well I revived a phone call yesterday at 4pm while I was teach my dance classes. It was the dealership, they were supposed to call and give me a qoute so I didn't call them back because I work from 4-9 non stop on Wednesdays. I don't get a break. 

So I listen to the message and it says they are co fused as to what part I needed for my car. And because my car is so old the person who I talked to before didn't understand what part I really needed. It's 10pm. So I know the place opens at 7am, so I call. They give me the run around and say they will call me back after so and so checks in guests. 

An hour later.... No call. I call them. Repeate my self asking if I should bring my car in or not... Finally she says we will have to reschedule. I asked if I could drive my car and she said she didn't know and would have someone call be back!!!!!  Um I've been waiting for someone to call me back... Of course I don't say this, but I'm thinking it. So I get a ride to the train, and head to work.

10am rolls around and I call back. And the lady tells me again I have to wait. And I said no, do you have the part or not? Because I will go someplace else. I need to have my car. This has been rediculess. If you don't have the part that's ok, I will have someone else get it and go someplace else. She says Pablo will call me back in 5 mins. I was short and upset. Pablo calls in20 seconds says we won't have the part for 3 days! OMG!  Seriously. So I say ok. 

He calls back in 10... Sorry I do have the part you can bring your car down anytime. 

Here.... I say I'm sorry I have two jobs and won't get home until about 11pm can I drop my car off tonight or tomorrow morning? Well he says that's fine. 

Mind you I might have jury duty tomorrow, don't know yet because the number is t working. So no car, have compitition/ convention this weekend and I had to do everyone else's job today at work. The only normal thing about today was teaching dance. Thank goodness for dance and thank goodness for my fiancĂ© who will be picking me up tonight or it would have taken me about 1.5 hours on the train, transferring twice. Mind you this is not the MTA where you can get from point A to point B in 10 mins, this is Portlans Oregon transit. Slow and no express train. Ugg! 

Do I get ice cream now? 

Oh and I have put about $5000 into my car in the last year. It's time for a new one, but I cant afford, a new one. My dream car is. VW GTI. (Sigh) 2015 min you. Why get a beater car when I have a beater car! I want a new one. But it's just not possible yet.

OLW

So, I choose blogging as my one thing to do everyday for the month of feb.... And I always look forward to it, but when it comes time to actually blog.

Why? What? Well I know what. But why am I wanting to do it? To create my story I can go and look back on? An online journal? That really at any point the Internet could actually crash and all this information would be lost.  Think about it, no really think about it. Would you remember everything you wrote down if it was wiped away? Your online scrapbook? I love holding things, holding memories. And reliving them. And really it boggles all down to time. 

there are things I don't want to write for all to see.... But writing it down on paper and sending it into the Universe.....isn't it the same? It's real if someone reads it or not. But yet, jobs look at social media now. To see if you slander or if you are someone they would like to hire. 

I don't understand and crazy to think about. 

When really I don't have time to think about, well I do, but then I won't have time to sleep. 

Here we go, time again. For example. Tuesday's I get to work at one job, I got off early to go and work out ran errors then helped make diner and cleaned up by that time it was 7:30 pm. I was sooooo tired. Everything I had planned to do and wanted to do, went out the window. I feel asleep on the couch. I was so tired I had no motivation to do what I actually really wanted to do. Like December daily, or One little word, or my scrapbook or play with my cats and dog, or just paint. Listen to music, figure out my computer program. I mean I have so many things I want to do. TONS!!!! 

Time... 

I need like two years off, 1 year to rest and the other to get everything done. I get it, by the time you get older your so tired because you've had to work your ass off just to have a few nice things. 

1- job in my field would be nice...dance 

That's the other challenge. 

Off to my 2nd job of 5 hours of teaching
