update from Avaland

My RL seems to have taken a dive toward crap’tastic. My uncle is back in the hospital and his liver seems to be getting worse not better at the moment and unfortunately this is his new liver so the doctors are hesitant to put him back on the in need of a donor list.
On Wednesday I found out I’m in need of a job or will be shortly so I’m back to job hunting. I hate job hunting but I did just finish my new résumé and might I say it looks fabulous. I’ve applied to be a Unit Secretary for hospital and for my local city officials. I’ve also decided to go back to school or more precisely a vocational school.
For those of you waiting for me to beta your lovely fics I apologize and should have them to you by tonight. *fingers crossed* Pol I’ve just gotten to the good stuff and *giggles* I think that sums it up. ;) Lisa…I was sneaky and read ahead. I couldn’t help myself. I have little to no will power but yours is well and truly beta’d I just have to email it to you once I get home.
The only saving grace was Project Revolution this Saturday in St. Petersburg. It was freakin’ phenomenal! I now have love for a little band called ‘Mindless Self-Indulgence’ even if I got heat exhaustion during their performance and had to be taken to the Med Tent. Though I did meet a cute EMT who put me on oxygen and then chitchatted with me for the ten minutes it took to get the color back in my cheeks. He asked for my phone # and I supplied it…and yes I did say he. I’m as surprised as all of you that a boy managed to catch my interest.
‘My Chemical Romance’ was absolutely prefect and they played ‘Teenager’ and I screamed myself hoarse. *bounces* There is nothing like standing in an auditorium with thousands of other fans who are just as excited as you, standing up out of their seats and screaming, singing, shouting along with a band. I got goosebumps more than once.
Linkin Park still manages to be my favorite band to see live even though I more than dislike their new album. They have such an energy live, that fills you up and it doesn’t matter that I’ve been standing since 11am and it’s now nearly 11pm. I’m tired, I’m exhausted and I’m thrilled to be there listening to them, singing with them. Good God do I love concerts. And this was my first concert not being on the floor (aka the pit) and I have to say it might have been cooler but I prefer the rowdy bunch that stands against that metal railing pushing, striving forward to see or possibly (if the Gods are smiling) touch those wonderful musicians that fill our lives up to the bursting point for those few precious 45 minutes.
I love my music.

Cute EMT's are the greatest! *grins* Makes you want to have heat exhaustion all the time! Of course that may not be a lot of fun either but having cute EMT's chat ya up and ask for your number is always of the good. *smoochies

Thanks so much for beta'ing my piece sweeite! *mwah*

I love Linkin Park, so flippin' amazing! Concerts, at least good ones are like a natural high!
Sorry to hear about all the badness in Avaland. Hope your uncle's condition improves.

Good luck on the job hunting. Maybe after a successful job slaying your EMT will help with the typical post slayage activities. ;)
Sorry to hear of the downs... I know how they can be...

I’m as surprised as all of you that a boy managed to catch my interest.

Well, maybe it was the EMT status talking or the exhaustion. ;-) Good that he got the color back though. Yay for EMTs!
Aww. I'm glad you had fun at the concert. We have one like that here every year, but I won't be attending this year since I'm pregnant. Fans like to get a little crazy. One of them shoved me a couple of years ago, and Joe later lost his glasses in a mosh pit and someone jumped on them by mistake.
Hey darlin'!

Sorry to hear about your uncle. That's gotta suck beyond reason. And you have to go job hunting?! Ugh. It's a pain in the ass, I know cause I'm starting the hunt as well. Luckily I've got five months to find one before it becomes worrisome.

And I hope that giggle is a good sign. ;)

And yay for concert fun! It's always nice to get out for a change. And my oh my, the EMT must have been cute. Glad you're okay!

If you need anything, just let me know. Mmmwwwaaahhh
*hugs* I'm so sorry to hear about your uncle.

Job hunting does suck. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you though! See? *crosses fingers*

But very glad that you had such a great time at the concert. It sounds like fun. (The last time I was at a concert and in the pit, I nearly lost my glasses. Which would have sucked. LOL.)
Your Icon makes me sad and frown because that was such a hard moment for me to watch in BtVS.

Well back to the post at hand...

I'm sorry to hear about your uncle? Are they going to be able to fix him and hopefully save the liver? How can they consider not putting him back on a donor list?

The job. What happened? I thought they were attempting to move you up their corporate ladder? Searching for a job definitely sucks! Good luck with your applications. The Unit Secretary job might be good. There is plenty of room for advancement, especially to become an executive secretary for one of the higher-ups in administration.

So a cute boy huh? *is tickled for you* How did it go? Did he call? So apparently while you were suffering from heat exhaustion you were still super cute! Go you!

I'm so very jealous that you got to see Linkin Park. There are one of my all-time favorite bands. I haven't purchased their latest album, but their first album just makes me smile. It is one of the few albums that I can listen to completely without the desire to skip songs.

We used to have these concerts put on by our local rock station (HFS) - HFStivals. They would get huge bands to play at RFK Stadium (in DC) and then they would have a locals only stage in the parking lot. It was a lot of fun - exhausting because it was an all day event - but you honestly just couldn't miss it.
