October Goals Wrap-Up

I am once again not please with the results of my monthly goals.  It looks like I'm at less than 30%!  That's not good! 

1. Work out at the WILL happen someday. -Not only did it not happen it looks like I will have to find another way to work out because I will not be getting access to the DSW gym any longer. 
2. Get 500 followers on Twitter...I'm SOOO close  SUCCESS!!!
3. Complete my latest craft project -Also complete, but I'm not sure I'm happy with it.  
4. Clear out my garden plot -Done, the only thing left is a cabbage plant since they don't mind the cold.  
5. Set-up an online photography portfolio (I have a Flickr; does anyone have any recommendations they like better?)-I didn't work on this...did anyone have any feedback on whether they would pick something over Flickr?
6. Continue blogging at least once/week -I missed the 3rd week of October, but other than that I did pretty good.  
7. Pick my knitting back up -This one I'm kind of ashamed of...I didn't even pull it out of the closet yet!  
8. Finish 2 books -Only finished one.
9. Work on my translations -Like my knitting I am ashamed I did not pick this up.  
10. Watch at least one movie from my AFI list.  This one is pretty surprising for me because I don't feel like I watched hardly any movies this month.  I feel bad because I missed out on the Hitchcock films being played on the big screen and that would have been perfect for this.  

Let's hope November can help me turn over a new leaf!

Odd Pets

Every once in a while I click the "Marketplace" application on my Facebook page (in case someone is giving away a free bed that I could use).  Upon doing so yesterday I saw a pet Wallaby for sale for $1,200.  
I want one.  
However, the question is...can I have one?  Are wallabys...or is it wallabies...or maybe that's definitely not know what I mean...but are they legal in this state?
Well let's start with what we know is legal: cats and dogs (unless your landlord says no then you'll be out on the street), most lizards, but those are basic pets.  Here's a little snippet into the unusual (and expensive) pets.  
World's most expensive pets: 
Green Monkey: $16 million Missy: $1.2 million Capuchin Monkey: $10,000 That's right.  I said LEGAL!  There are neither bans nor requirements on monkey ownership in Ohio so go for it!  Buy your monkey!
Need a less feminine monkey?  Try these guys!
De Brazza's Monkey: $7,000-$10,000

Squirrel Monkey: $…

Gen Y Gives Thanks

I apologize a thousand times for the lack of updates and for putting this up so late. Large amounts of technical difficulties have inhibited my blogging, email checking, social networking, etc. However, now that I have a moment's internet access I would like to give you the link to this brilliant idea that Sharalyn Hartwell has cooked up. She writes for the Gen Y Examiner and to combat the stereotype that Gen Y is a bunch of ungrateful brats she asked members of Gen Y to write what they're grateful for and has been posting them in series.

Here's the link. She's posted a few each day so keep reading these articles of course I'm partial to mine which can be read here.

Your Blog: Resume Boost or Liability?

I have recently read two different blogs that have both touched on the same topic. How your blog affects your resume and/or job search. The first was an interview with Sasha Halima, one of my favorite bloggers, at PR Breakfast Club. You can read it here. The second is on Brand Yourself, Your Blog is Your Extended Resume.

Brand Yourself argues just what the title says that a blog is an extended resume and that when a potential employer searches for you and finds a blog full of fabulous content, they'll hire you.

And while I couldn't agree more that I AGONIZED over the fact that potential employers were most likely Googling me and getting results for some person in Seattle or a Blues Singer in New York the interview with Sasha Halima said something that also struck a chord with me. Your blog can be a "liability." That is the scariest word that any potential employer could ever say because, if you're a liability to them, odds are other potential employers could fee…
