I've been suffering depression on and off the past 6 months or so. So much that I had to see a doctor. She put me on Symbyax, but I'm living off of the samples because I have no insurance or perscription plan. I guess its working. I forget to take it sometimes. But I do notice that I am a bit happier when on it.
I've also been out of work for awhile. I suppose I could have always gone back to Chuck E Cheese, but I really didn't like that place. I figured that there must be something better out there for someone who has an associates degree.
Things are starting to look up. I went to a Verizon Wireless career fair at the local call center. I was able to bypass the first interview and go straight to the second one. I completed the assessment testing and passed it with flying colors. I just have to way for HR to contact me for the last interview. It sounds like I already have the job, but I don't want to count my chickens before they are hatched.
The pay is good. It pays about $27,000 a year. Also, the benefits start from day one unlike other companies where you have to be full time for at least 6 months or so. The benefits include health insurance, 401K and tuition reimursement if I decide to go back to school.
Anyways, I have to go now. Will update later.
Your True Blood Guy is Sam
You tend to fall for the lone wolf, especially if he's the sensitive sort. You like to be pampered.
If a guy treats you well, then you're hooked. You're not likely to judge a guy too harshly on his past or secrets.
You are the type of woman who is likely to fall for a friend. You are usually attracted to the sweetest guy in your life.
You don't like much drama in your love life. Being happy is as simple as finding someone you're content to sit still with.
So, I went to Epcot Center on Friday. It was awesome. No, it may not be as fun as the Magic Kingdom, but it was nice and the crowd wasn't too bad and I had major nostalgia..which is always nice. The park is split into two parts. You have Future World and World Showcase. It was awesome seeing the huge golf ball again, which is actually a ride called Spaceship Earth. Though it looks intimidating than Space Mountain, it's probably the slowest ride known to mankind lol. Without knowing anything about the park it looks like it would be a ride akin to Space Mountain. But this park is all about educating people about different aspects of technology. Spaceship Earth is about the evolution of society from the cavemen times to when the world wide web was invented. There are a couple of thrill rides. The Test Track is the best. I went on it twice in a row. After going through various testing processes that cars go through before being put on the market, you go on a joyride on a racetrack around the building. It's awesome.
Mission: Space was cool, but I had to be on the green team because my dad has heart problems (the green team is a less intense version, with no spinning involved). I went back to ride the regular version of the ride (which is the same except you spin and the spinning simulates a force of 2.5G, meaning it the gravity force is more than twice the Earth's gravity and makes you feel 2.5 times heavier.) It's more of a centrifuge ride (think Star Tours meets the Gravitron). That version has made people sick and I believe Disney was sued a couple of times because a people have died on it. Anyways, the line for that one was 80 minutes and I just didn't feel like waiting. Maybe it's good that I didn't get on it, because the last time I went on the Gravitron at the fair, I got sick. But, I kind of wanted to because it's an experience I don't know if I'll have again for a very long time. It's a cute ride because each person is assigned a flight duty such as commander, navigator, etc and you have to press buttons and stuff. The cool thing was seeing Gary Sinise on the screen.
The Seas With Nemo and Friends is soooooooooooooo cute. The Nemo submarine voyage was loosely based on The Seas With Nemo and Friends. Only on The Seas With Nemo and Friends, the characters swim with real sealife (including dolphins) and rather than going underwater, it's basically an aquarium. I love the song. It's insanely cute. This attraction used to be The Living Seas and they still have the cool aquarium exhibit once you get off of the ride, where you can see different types of sealife including manatees. It's fun.
World Showcase was neat too. There are small representations of different countries. Lets see if I can name them all. There's Mexico, Norway, China, Germany, Italy, the USA, Japan, Morocco, France, the UK and Canada. Japan was awesome. The shop had anime stuff and other Japanese imports. Of course I didn't buy any of it because it was all expensive (it is Disney World afterall). But they had Bleach, Naruto, Pokemon and others. Morocco was pretty. I went there to see if I could find Aladdin and Jasmine but they weren't out yet. If I had waited a few more minutes, I probably would have seen them. It was hot though and we had a fast pass for Soarin' that we had to use. It's a good thing we got the fast pass too, because the average wait for that ride is between 75 and 115 minutes.
Journey Into Imagination was my favorite ride when I was 3. I LOVED Figment! That ride has changed though. They took out the Dreamfinder and put Eric Idle's character in Honey I Shrunk the Audience in it. But at least they still have Figment. I love him. I bought a Figment plushie for my little niece.
South Park spoofed the Dreamfinder in the Imaginationland episode and they kind of spoofed the song too lol. *sings* imaaaaagination imaaaaagination.

So I finished buying souveniers for my nieces and nephew. I got the youngest one a Figment from Epcot. I got the boy a space shuttle playset and my older niece a necklace from Ron Jon Surf Shop. So yay..I think I am done. I'm just gonna relax the rest of the time. I think we're going to see the Peabody ducks in Orlando on Friday. We're having a BBQ on Saturday and we're possibly going to the beach on Sunday.
This was taken yesterday at the river outside my dad's house!
So far I am having a blast..I got to see Cocoa Beach again as well as Merritt Island. I don't think we are going to Kennedy Space Center..granted it's like 6 miles away from me, but it's $40 to get in and apparently it hasn't changed in the 12 years since I've been there.
Friday I am going to Walt Disney World....well EPCOT to be exact since that's probably the park I miss the most. I haven't been in like 18 years..man it costs $75 to get into one of those parks..$67 if you are a Florida resident. EPCOT will have less of the kiddies anyways...and OMG they have the test track ride..and Soarin'. I'm excited. Here's hoping it rains a bit though because it's been HOT.
I'm kind of sad they cancelled the shuttle launch that was supposed to be last week, because I really wanted to see it. But it won't happen until July 11th and I'll be home then. Oh well...I've seen them already. I just wanted to get that nostalgic feeling hearing the sonic booms.
The amazing thing is that my allergies are not bothering me at all here!! I think the humidity has something to do with it. The humidity is doing wonders for my skin too. No dryness as of yet.
I guess sometime this weekend we are going back to Cocoa Beach to hang out at the beach for awhile. I missed the Florida beaches. The warm water is nice..and seashells are awesome. Actually, we may go to the Port Canaveral beach because thats the one I went to all the time as a kid.

Man, I don't want to close tomorrow. I hate doing it :(
Oh did anyone hear about the American live action Death Note movie? Apparently it is going to be out in 2010 and is produced by the same company that did the American version of Shutter. I don't know how well that will do...
Andrea you should check into call center work. They usually offer paid training and the pay isn't too bad. I'm sure there are some near you. They are everywhere.
