I wonder what will happen.

Hello there my lovelies,

Okay, so I am working on completing the package that DHS sent me, and I think that I am almost half way there. I am still in the process of filling out the SF-86 form and man that is extensive.  I have to remember every time I traveled out of the country, even as a minor. I also had so many part time jobs in college. Hell, in the year 2000 I think I worked at five different places.

What else......... Ah yes on Wednesday I will go in for my medical exam and physical fitness test. Wish me luck on lifting 50 lbs. I look really stupid at the gym. I see all these buffed dudes lifting massive weights. And then there is me working on lifting a 50 lb with both hands and sweating like a pig. I got a couple of looks yesterday. Either that or they were staring at my boobs.

Going through this process is extensive and tedious, but I am very happy that it is happening and that I have a chance at this. I am up for some adventure and this job would be a dream come true. However, there are no guarantees in life and just because I have worked so hard for this and want it really bad doesn't mean that it is guaranteed to happen. But I do think that I would make a great agent. 

But at least, I am happy the the ball is rolling on this. I really hope that the outcome is favorable on this.

Busy

Hello there my lovelies,

First of all, I wanted to thank those that congratulated me on my last entry. I really appreciate those that take the time to read my journal and comment.

Life has been busy for me. I was sick for a couple of days, so I didn't make it to the gym. Plus preparing everything for Office of Personnel Management is so time consuming. They want me to go back 10 years. I have to list every place I ever worked and lived for the past ten years, plus someone that knew me back then in each different job and residence. I have moved on in life, and going back takes a while. Not to mention my year long trip in Barcelona. I moved around a lot during that time. This is going to be interesting. It would be one thing if I lived in the same house my whole life and had the same job for a while, but that is definitely not the case with me.

My car is also getting fixed, so I will be happy when I get it back. My front and back bumpers should be like new. I should be picking it up tommorow. I hope that they give it a wash and a vacum. I really needed it. In the mean time, I am enjoying my rental. I am driving a brand new Sentra. Can't complain about that.

Anyway, I better go now.

Ciao Ciao.

It's Finally Happening to me !

Hello there my lovelies,

So yesterday I went to get my mail and I got a fat package from Department of Homeland Security with a tentative offer for working as a Customs and Border Protection Agent.

Since this is a tentative offer, it means that I have a buttload of requirements to meet. And IF I meet them and IF they like me and think I will make a great Agent, then they will hire me and I will move to Southern CA. I am thinking San Diego, Yuma, something like that. I hear great things about the weather.

In the mean time, I will be getting fingerprinted, taking a fitness test, a medical exam, and a drug test. All this in addition to all of the paperwork I will be filling out. Did I mention that they will also do a full on background check of me and my financials ? This is going to be a long process, and I will wait and see what happens. I have heard that this can take anywhere from 5 months to a year.

Anywho, wish me luck.

VA Tech Shootings

Hello there,

I am really angered and saddened by the VA Tech Shootings. It's so unfair. Cho got everything he wanted. He killed the people he wanted to before shooting himself. AND he got the airtime and publicity. He is getting more airtime than the victims. I think that people such as the Romanian math teacher that saved his students by standing between them and the gunman deserves to be on air more that Cho. What about the victims ? It angers me that his plan not only worked, but that he is known worldwide.

What angers me more, was that Cho was such a coward that he killed himself. There is no chance that justice will be served. We can't bring him to court, we can't talk to him and dig deeper into his brain. There is no chance for him to face the consequences of what he did. I know that he will have horrible karma, but what about now ? He should be rotting in prison. He should be confined for the rest of his life.

I don't really like to talk about current events here on my journal, but this just bothers me. My heart really goes out to the victims. A university is not a place to die, especially in class. People should be able to get an education without having to worry about being killed.

Okay, I said my piece. I am done here.

Busy

Hello there my lovelies,

I have been crazy busy lately, especially since I got my new iPod. I love it because then I exercise more. Yesterday I went to the gym and ran five miles on the treadmill. I was on that thing for an hour. I haven't done that in a while. I have also been blowing some cash on iTunes. Been downloading the newest hits. It helps take the edge off while I am trying to get projects done at work. I bought it with my tax refund. I also decided to buy the shuffle. It's so cute.

What else ? Just in the process of trying to get my car fixed. Did I also tell you that late last month some guy in his new Lexus SUV backed up and hit my car ? He busted my left rear headlight. I was parked away from everyone else at Starbucks, yet he somehow managed to hit me. Luckily I wasn't in the car. But I can't be mad because he sought me out and gave me his insurance information. And because he did that, I thanked him and told him I wasn't going to be mean and bitch about it. But I did let it slip that I had recently been in an accident.

Anyway, I have more stuff to write about, but I will get to all that later. That'll be for another time.

Ciao Ciao.
