Thor's Day

I Love Thursdays! And on this particular Thursday I sure did get a lot done. I opened the bnr at 8 am and started training a new curator. We kept the bnr open all morning and then I went and took a tour of the xcell school in hoover. I smiled the whole time I was there. It took about an hour and I had really made up my mind about attending school there but i drove past Virgina College in Homewood.
Then I went to the Y in Greystone and joined the Y! So I can swim and work out even when it rains!
After that I came home and made Pork Chops and barely managed to open my bnr at 7pm. We had three sales. And i filled out my Fafsa forms. Now it's bath time! I'm so tired and so happy!

More Changes

I got up yesterday totally disappointed in myself because i had intended upon opening my bnr early and training Alison of to curate. But it was 10:15 when I woke up and I knew it was already too late to attract any morning sales. So I got up, got dressed and went for a thirty minute walk around the neighborhood. While I was walking I decided that the best thing I can do for myself is get back in school.
I came home, took a shower and got an order ready to go out. I went to the post office and then target.
When I came home I started doing research on Birmingham area Beauty schools. And by 4pm I'[d spoken to a recruiter from the Xcell Paul Mitchell school in Hoover. Thursday I'm supposed to go meet with an advisor at 2:30 and take a tour. Today I'm filling out my fasfa to get a grant  And Feb 21 classes start. I may have to find another job that'll work around my school schedule better but....I'm super excited.
I opened the bnr last night. we had two sales, etsy is so slow.

Starting Over

I hate doing this, but after months and months blogging elsewhere: suspended my blog no warning, no reason given. It's just under their lock and key. So, I'm starting anew here. I couldn't call it notes from LesleyLand as I wished, But letters from Lesleyland sounds just as good, if not better.
There's not a lot going on. I'm at work right now, bored. 
I suppose this is really really fitting, new life, new blog address. New Ideas.
This is the last thing they let me post before I was unceremoniously suspended! enjoy!

In my aims
to be evermore
I have stumbled
and often fallen

Without grace
driven by anger
anxiety, hurt
sadness and rage

I have spent
too long
looking up
from on my knees

Now I am done fighting
done with hating me
I rise so slowly
a phoenix from dead ashes
