If the problem has a solution, worrying is pointless, in the end the problem will be solved. If the problem has no solution, there is no reason to worry, because it can't be solved. -Zen Quote

This is an extremely relevant quote for me right now. There are so many stresses, so many nerves, so many I freak and then sit down and think about "it" logically and rationally. This quote is soooo prevelant now, for everyone, not just nationwide, but world wide. There is so much going on around the world that sometimes we lose sight of what's really important. WE are important. Living breathing beings. Not stuff.

Anyhow, off of my soapbox I am going to try so hard to NOT ramble this time, but I can't promise anything.

So I finished my personal training course, got a 92%. Now I am off and looking for a training job (this is one reason this quote is so important to me right I went on an interview and the guy wants me to come in for two weeks on a trial basis. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. That's all great! It's for an hour a day and in Newark, which is about 45 minutes from me. Ok...just got a bit worse, but I am so passionate about this I am doing it. The class is at 4am. That's all right. Just come home and take a nap! The first week will be the real test. If I can make it through the week, I should be

Reformed....What's that? It's book two of the Re series. This time we are living the life of a werewolf. Reborn is in the production phase now. We've signed the contract, submitted author info, and now the artist is working on the cover. I really hope it turns out the way I see it in my head. One of these days I will have the money to hire a graphic artist.

So anyhow. Reformed. It's in the developmental stage now. I am investigating the characters, plotting how I want the book to progress, etc. Then I will be sitting down and writing the rough draft. Once I start writing the rough draft, I will be putting the feelers out for beta readers. These are people who read the book looking for continuity issues, character flaws, contradictions. So not an editor, more like an overly critical Beta readers are usually volunteers. If anyone out there wants to read the book for free and be my beta reader let me know! lol. I can't pay, but I may be able to "pay" in a free copy once the book gets published. ;)

Let's see...what else. I am still at Subway and loving it now. The new owners rock! They are so fun to work with/for. They like to make the environment fun, but you know that you are supposed to work while you are there. It's very seldom you find bosses like these Even though it's Subway, there's a respect there. You WANT to work while you are there just because you respect the owners. I don't know if that makes any sense, but it makes perfect sense to me.

I am thinking about selling a kick but nutritional suppliment program called advocare. It's soooo amazing! I just have to slow my roll and take it one step at a time. I need to get the money to be able to sell it. This is the ONLY product I will stand behind as a trainer. There are so many products out there that just spew a bunch of crap, but this product backs it up!

Anyhow, I think that's

Til next time....

The Muddy Road
Tanzan and Ekido were once traveling together down a muddy road. A heavy rain was still falling.
Coming around a bend, they met a lovely girl in a silk kimono and sash, unable to cross the intersection.
"Come on, girl" said Tanzan at once. Lifting her in his arms, he carried her over the mud.
Ekido did not speak again until that night when they reached a lodging temple. Then he no longer could restrain himself. "We monks don't go near females," he told Tanzan, "especially not young and lovely ones. It is dangerous. Why did you do that?"
"I left the girl there," said Tanzan. "Are you still carrying her?"
