Let Me Get What I Want

I found a company for whom I would actually LOVE to work. So, in typical Charlie fashion, I just wrote the owner.
I didn't even look for employment listings for the company.
Didn't check for a human resources contact. I just went straight to the MAN. It will either work, or it won't.
What have I to lose?
I'm already not working for them, and that's the worst that could happen, so....
Really cool company. I sincerely hope it comes to something. It's just the way I've always done this, it has always worked, let's see how it functions in the UK!
I got my gym membership squared away.
I will start a new workout regime next week.
The diet is going well, 15 lbs gone so far.
I was using an artificial sweetner in my coffee and tea, (gag) and I instantly dropped 5 lbs.
But, I stopped it a few days ago and the headaches that had returned in the last month with a fierceness have gone again, as quickly as they had come back on.
Hmmm.
Could it be.....
I have cut my caloric intake so dramatically, though, adding the sugar back has had no effect on the weight loss. I have been stretching everyday, walking for longer stretches, just gradually preparing to bust my hump working out. I'm going to start with swimming, as long as the water is warm enough. My internal thermostat is all over the place. I am usually freezing or scorching.
I am rarely comfortable, temperature wise.
My skin has suffered as a result of the diet. I am more prone to little manifestations of lack of amino acid compounds. My sleep is still great, so the tone and tightness of my skin is still ever improving.
Plus, I've had an abundance of oxygen and that has GOT to be making some of the huge difference I see.
I got my hair coloured. I stuck with my natural colour.
I just tire of black or brown so quickly that it's an instant guarantee of ruining my hair in some way to get it out.
I just don't want to go through that right now. My hair is in better condition than it has been since the last time I wrecked it after dying it black.
That whole positive attitude Patty went and crawled under a table after I shouted at her and called her stupid. She isn't too keen to come out.
I had a pity party for a few weeks. I need that once in a while to get a better grip on things.
To appreciate the things I have, the things that aren't wrong. The things I have to be thankful for.
I have made some lists.
Things that I MUST get done.
Places I need to get to so that certain things can be done. Just a whole inventory of what can no longer be postponed. Then, I made a list of what has to happen to make those necessary things happen, so, I have a plan, of sorts.
And, I am taking steps.
It feels good to me to be actively seeking something.
I feel like those times when I'm not actively seeking, I am stagnating. There are a few other details I have to get ironed out and taken care of. Financing the projects being the biggest one, but, hopefully, that can be worked out. It isn't as difficult as it could be. It's just not always pleasant to negotiate. Maybe I can change that this time as well.
Well, I have suddenly gotten extremely leaden lidded.
My eyes are not wanting to stay open.
I wanted to write, but, my body has other pressing urges that I cannot override.
Oh well.
I had Life's Rich Pageant playing and was all ready to pontificate about random things for at least half an hour.
hahaha, what a rare thing for me to do, keep it brief.
Stranger things have surely transpired.

Hi Charlie,

That's the best way to do things, really. Just go straight to the owners. That's what I did for the job I have now. I just called them from Savannah one day and told them I was looking for a job and needed to move to the area soon. Before I knew it, they called back for an interview and demo, and I landed the job!

Glad you didn't color your hair black. It's great to have black hair, but as said before, so very hard to reverse.

Great job on the diet, too, Charlotte. It isn't easy. Wish I was there - we could swim laps together! Swimming is my favorite sport. Started at age three. Took to the water like a fish. :)

Plans, plans. You sound like me! I'm lining up a lot of different things, too. Drawing plans and talking to people...if it's meant to be and all that. Well, I do have a will. I'm just paving the way at the moment :)

hehe,
my favourite saying is "where there is MY WILL, there is MY WAY!"
I wish you were here too!!!
I've said it before, if you can get here, you have a place to stay!!

While I was back home at the coast I had such a great time and I felt so good. Relaxed. I really want to go back permanently. I'm happiest there. So...I've taken up photography and want to start a little business, I suppose. I'm talking to local photographers about learning the craft and contacting people at the beach about advertising and also selling my art. It's going to be a lot of work, but I'm willing to do it if I can get back there.

Visiting England...Yes - thank you! I will definitely keep that in mind. I wish I could just stay in England for three to six months just to see if it's right for me as I would like to live there, too. I'd find a little apartment or house near the coast and set out on a fun adventure. Though, I'm sure that wouldn't be easy, either!

Who knows what the future holds. I just want to hear the ocean roaring and waves rolling instead of lots of busy streets and engines running! Don't know if I can find that in a small coastal town in England, but I"m willing to try! :)
