Miss Delusional Rides Again

This might be some kind of a record. It isn't even 10pm and I'm writing in my diary!

I sent off a couple of emailed resumés last night, including one to the newspaper in Wyoming. I had an email waiting for me this morning when I got up. Granted, it was just to say that they couldn't read my resumé, but their quick response is in line with my family/friend's comments that they're desperate for qualified workers in the area. If they pay me a liveable wage and don't ask me to work in slave-labor conditions, I'll pack my happy butt up there asap.

Though I must admit, I was beginning to worry for a while. When I did a search, at first I thought they had no Wal Mart, even though the city boasts a population of about 25,000. How am I supposed to live cheaply without the all-encompassing, wage-depressing, woman-hating store of all time?

In reality I was thinking, "What a breath of fresh air!" Of course that lasted until I discovered that in fact, the fungus of department stores was there. And in reality I do need to buy things at Wally World, because frankly, the differences in prices are too much to ignore. Once I move, it will take me a while (at the very best) to get my life rebuilt, no matter what.

In the interim, cross your fingers that I can get a car for about $1000 that will be strong enough to make the trip and get me around once I get there.

And oh yeah, cross your fingers that I actually get the job and have it waiting when I arrive. That would be a godsend. I wouldn't even mind living out of the car for a while that way, at least not too bad!

Before - After

In the grander scheme of things, no soul can truly be replaced. Each one of us has a place in the universal tapestry. We each contribute our own color and texture. When one thread is snipped too soon, it distorts all the threads around it. Other lives can unravel and tear. If the wrong thread is ripped away, the whole fabric of life becomes dangerously fragile.
