Status Story

So, many things are going on in life right now. Marcus finally started his student teaching on Thursday and I will be starting school again this Monday. Finally, I CAN SEE THE LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL! But...that means we will be thrown out into the "real world" and have to fend for ourselves even more than we already are, including finding full-time jobs with benefits. Yikes! Little nervous about that.

My creative juices have been running the past couple of days. Baking zucchini cupcakes, cheesecake, and working on a project to hang up in our bedroom. I also was on Facebook (it seems to be an addiction) and was reading my Facebook status' and of course "Facebook Stalking" and reading others. It's amazing how much you can learn about a person just by their facebook status'! You can almost do a study on it. Like a Content Analysis or something. You can look at language and profanity and love and hate and "Like this status if you like me or I will kill myself tomorrow," that sort of thing. Well, I decided to posts some of my most popular status' (as in they have been "liked" or commented on) from the past 10 days. You know, ten days shouldn't be that much... With these status' I also included dates and times.

I maybe broke to the bone, but I don't think I have ever been happier. -32 min ago

my cheesecake rocks. it doesn't look as pretty as the picture but it sure tastes good! It still looks pretty nice though. But trust me, you do not want to know how good/bad it is for you. at least there is fruit in it right? :) -20 hours ago

what was one do with left over heavy whipping cream? -Thursday at 10:13pm

watching the fox and the hound. I will not cry. I will not cry. -Thursday at 9:37 pm

Karin Price is really really irritated with an employer and it is not The Children's Place. This is ridiculous. I want my pay check. I am slightly upset.-Thursday at 6:32 pm

is a little nervous about how this school year is going to work out.- Thursday 2:03pm

wow my shoulder hurts. I think its time Marcus and I switch sides on the bed so I don't sleep on that side of my body anymore. It kinda hurts. :(  -Thursday at 12:50

With this next status I also include one of the comments and that is me fixing my Spanish errors. 

Hacando pollo de alfredo por almuerzo de Marcus Price por sus dia primo de escuela manana. Soy esposa bien verdad? :) -Wednesday at 9:04pm
    -haciendo el almuerzo de Marcus Price. Pollo con alfredo. Por que manana es el primer dia de escuela de el. Que buena esposa soy yo verdad. I was close!

was successful making chocolate zucchini cupcakes. they were tasty. :) -Aug 17 10:55pm

Is going to go on a nice long walk with her hubby. My mind is racing and he is so lucky to get to hear all about it. "So, I have a story..." :) -August 15 at 9:28pm

I may not like my legs, I may think I am fat, I may think I am to pale and that my face breaks out to much, BUT God blessed me with amazing hair. :) -August 15 at 3:32pm

Does not like it when Marcus Price says "I love you" and then points to a different room and finishes "....but over there!" Butthead. -August 11 at 1:24pm

Now, here is the fun part. I want to know your opinion about Facebook status' and what people post. Including mine if you wish. I can honestly say you can learn a lot about a person. Even when its like my husband who barely ever posts them. What do you think?

Love Always,
Karin Marie

Talents are blessings right?

Is it possible to be blessed with TO MANY talents? I am not trying to be cocky or anything. But here are things things I have really enjoyed in my life. (Not that I do them currently)

-I LOVE riding horses. I haven't been on a horse in seven years. This bothers me.
-I really enjoyed AutoCad and drafting in middle school and high school. I was good at it.
-I won best design in middle school for my CO2 car. It rocked! I should go find it.
-I did a lot of art classes in middle school and high school. I even painted a mural in the band room and painted and designed the Big Band Dance Music Stands for the Sax line. I went to an honor art show my freshman year as well. I haven't done a lot of art since. I haven't even taken a class in college. Originally I wanted an art minor. Fail.
I miss art SO much I am going to bless you with some pictures. (hope you caught the sarcasm)

-I love music. I have played trumpet, bass guitar, guitar, French horn, and piano.
-I love animals. I want a farm.
-I desire to be a mother.

Okay, so I have all of these things I love doing. I would love to be back in the wood shop again. IT SMELLS SO GOOD. It has been years though. And nothing beats the smell of a barn.

So here is my problem. I have named a small number of interests that I have. As of right now I am planning on going on to graduate school for horn performance. The thing with that though is I have chronic problems with my lungs. I am sure my hearing is getting worse and worse AND I have tendonitis in both of my shoulders. Not really sounding good for someone who wants to be a horn player.

So. I am stuck. As of right now, the most ideal life for me would be living with my husband on an acreage with a shop. I would be able to build things and paint and draw and design, and when I get bored with that I would hop on a horse and go for a ride. I would have dogs come with us and I would have a kiddo sitting in my lap. It bothers me. Because in that dream, where is horn? Where is music? Maybe I won't even keep up with it. Maybe I put myself on the wrong path. Is that possible? Even my grandma said that she always pictured me doing art things like my mom did. I love doing. I love working with my hands.

Mom says I have to many interests and I have many talents. I just wish I knew what I was going to be doing in the future. Then I could just work towards it. Maybe I will just go back to school and start all over. Maybe I will go get an associates from SCC in art. Any takers?

Gosh what I would do to get back on a horse again. And I really miss being an artist. At least I know I can keep that up if I wanted.

Talents are blessings right? Now what to do with my life...
Karin Marie.

Many Jobs

So, this month Marcus and I would what you would call..."Scraping by." Really. So both of us are working as much as we can while still keeping our sanity. I applied for a job and got an interview this week. It also applies towards my major. Fingers crossed that I get the job. In the mean time I am working in a little coffee shop and working other odds and ends. Here is a new one. It is pretty cool You get paid to wear t-shirts. So, today I ventured out and got paid to wear a t-shirt.
Its really not to difficult.  This is the front of the shirt. Basic t-shirts for hire logo. The objective of the company is to get other companies to participate and "buy days" for an individual to wear a t-shirt in public. My shirt was a specific experiment by the company. On the back of the shirt encourages people to text in if they want to get paid to wear a t-shirt. (below on the left.) My job, is to wear this t-shirt on a designated day.
Then when I wear the shirt I have to wear it in a public place then post a picture of myself wearing out in public. Then I post it on Facebook or on a blog or both. And this is a picture of me smiling at Walmart.

And I am checking out face washes. That is besides the point. Basically, its a free shirt and you get paid to wear it. To me...that's a win win. I don't know what you think. But, you should totally go check it out.

Well thats my little plug for the day with this business.
