What are you attempting to change in your live right now?

Now I've finished studying I'm trying to find a new job - I want one that uses the things I've learnt in my studies, will let me keep learning new things, will be a bit more challenging, and (most importantly) will pay me a bit more money!

I'm trying to lose weight, become a better parent, open my own company, keep my house and office more organized, become closer in my relationship...and actually - you name it and I'm probably trying to change it!


Health. I've lost 25-30 lbs this year. I'm about where I want to be.

Well, of course that would be getting a real job, which, is not unforeseeable...after talking with my contractor, that seem quite supportive of my goals...I am getting my IT certificate this summer...and in the Fall I am taking a Intro to SQL using Oracle Class...and a Intro to Programming class...I will also be reading/practicing a lot of Oracle stuff this summer. Also, my contractor is letting my use their computers to practice my computer stuff...which is totally cool of them...they want me to succeed, so I can work for them as a computer dude...and I want to stop filing, so we both want the same thing...sorry for writing such a long answer.

its funny because i think about change but i dont actually do it. i am a person who can analyze something to death but never takes action on it.

so i guess that is what i am attempting to change.

a saying that i read and heard. wisdom is knowing what to do next, virtue is doing it.

bible talks about, preachers preach about, and my mom nags about being a virtuous woman all the time.

it makes sense and i would like to be one. if not for the true meaning then at least for the title because the word virtuous just sounds so meaningful and powerful.

ingrid, the virtuous woman. damn important it says. i am someone to pay attention to, to move out of the way of, to strive to be with, strive to emulate, to observe in awe.

virtuous. damn good word.

Sure. this has been a crazy year. I got laid off from my job in January. My husband was laid off the day before Christmas. He went back to work in March and then in APril fell off a ladder at work. He dislocated his shoulder. THey now found out he torn a rotator cuff and chipped a bone in the fall. So now he is waiting for surgery. My oldest son just graduated high school. The younger boy just received his driver's permit. So without trying to at all, plenty has been changed in our lives. I am kind of floating down the river of life and seeing
