Day 11 – 30 Days of ME!

Hello Readers!

I have got to do better at getting these posts done in a more timely manner.  Once again, I’m so late as technically, it’s now Saturday. It’s after midnight!  I got busy with school assignments.  My class I’m working through is Interviewing & Counseling.  I’m on Week 4 of 5. I can’t believe it’s already almost done.  I have a couple papers to write yet and some chapter assignments too.  Once again, I procrastinated and I had no excuse for it being I haven’t had to go to a job! Instead, I chose to go spend time out at Lake Michigan! Mentally, I needed that though. I’ve come to learn that it’s very important to take time for yourself and spend time with your emotions.  I happen to find the lake very soothing. Nature in general (aside from snakes) is very calming for me.  If I see a snake, you can bet, I’ll probably avoid that area for a long time! I’m SO incredibly afraid of snakes. I HATE them!!

Before I get on to today’s topic, I just want to fill you in on the interview I had.  It was a phone interview with National Heritage Academy.  They’re a charter school and they have 80+ schools in nine states now.  Their headquarters are here in Grand Rapids, MI.  The position I interviewed for is HR Technology Coordinator.  I think it went pretty well.  You have to understand though that I worked for one company for 28 years and have very little interviewing skills…unfortunately.  I continue to look for opportunities.  So please, continue to pray with me that something comes up soon.

Ok – now on to the topic for the challenge… “Another picture of you and your friends…”

I’m posting two pictures. One picture is an older picture of me with my best furry pal Zoey. She is now passed away. She passed in July of 2017.  Zoey got me through an awful lot of heartache. She was there to lick my tears away when my ex cheated on me and my mom was dying.  She has a very special place in my heart and always will.  I miss her!  She was 12 years old when she passed.  Having her put down was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do.  The other picture was taken at a Do It Herself event at Home Depot that I went to with my very good friend.  I’m the one with the purple flower address box. My friend has the one with the fairy painted on hers.  Obviously, I’m the odd one out who chose to paint mine a nice bright color, while most others chose to stain theirs.  I still have yet to purchase the numbers for the address. My friend that I went to this event with is a very crafty woman. She has little fairy doors for all of her grand kids and does all kinds of little fairy events and such. It’s so cute.  She also bakes cakes that are awesome and creative!  I am so NOT crafty at all. My gifts lie elsewhere.

Wherever you are in this beautiful world, I wish you peace, love and happiness!

Oh! One more thing…my prayers and well wishes to all those affected by Hurricane Florence!

❤ Dottie
