Since March until last week I had volunteered at a museum in Middleton [I know very little about trains! Just about Blue Coal anthracite, and some unhelpful tidbits like Nova Scotia's new rail abandonment law]. I didn't post about it here because I still am struggling with feeling like anything I do matters, and typing a lot is a lot of energy for me now [LiveJournal removed Voice Posts unannounced which fucked-up me making those]. I was hired via CommunityINC. to do cataloguing/archiving for them because their collection has never been documented before. A lot of the items haven't been stored very well or treated well and it is very depressing. Like stickers stuck directly on a photograph where the stickers peeled up and took parts of the photograph with them. Coffee stains and such. I HATED dealing with taking pictures out of some frames as they often were stapled or held in with little pins. And the glass had a chance of being broken :-( I also ended-up running their Facebook Page, and dealing with patrons/potential donors

Anyway, besides from the depressing condition, and how dirty the place was, and dealing with people, I really enjoyed it. I felt really respected there. And I don't feel much respect towards me in my life. I got a GLOWING letter of reference from one of the Directors and they want me back in the spring (I was supposed to be done the 1ST week of November, but they decided to close it for the season a month early and winterise it now as it's been getting hella cold. It's in an old railway station.). It's not paid though which really sucks. And that's lead to lots of flack from some people in regards to wasting my time and such by working there. They just don't have the funds and only managed to pay me for my birthday. They did give me a name tag though. Anyway, that's another point in my life I went through.

Next I have the 4 week NEO program [Navigating Employment Opportunities] through PeopleWorx. And I've been hired as a Deputy Returning Officer for the upcoming school board election.

I scribbled over my Master Number and such.

I have been putting my trials with my road tests on a previous entry, but yep; passed yesterday!

I wasn't very nervous taking it, but was prior as the driving instructor puts me right on edge and grates at me. But taking it I was calm. I passed well below the allowed mistake points and the examiner was proud of my perpendicular park, how I handled 3 motorcycles running a red light while I was already turning in the intersection, & that I put my turn signal on+shoulder checked when we came to a car parked in the middle of the road.

I think I was just too fed-up to be hella nervous this time. I had the attitude of "let's just get it over with". I didn't expect to pass but I didn't think I'd do really bad either. I was more confident but not self-confident.

Middleton's Registry of Motor Vehicles no longer has a permanent examiner after the one they had suddenly left the job. So they gave been getting in whoever else is available meaning they have a huge backlog.

The first time I was a mess and the examiner didn't know the Middleton area at all. )

The second examiner was so nice but I had a lot of stress and made too many little mistakes. )

The 3RD time I was more practiced & feeling more confident! )

It felt hella surreal when I was paying for my new graduated license like it felt like that couldn't possibly be what was actually happening. I held the still warm freshly printed license in my hands and so much weight was off of me.

This will make employment ability much more reachable and a better living situation for me & my babies feel possible. Everything has felt so pointless. I still owe the driving school money from my last extra lesson and they're ransoming my defensive driving certificate until they get paid. So I can't get insurance sorted until I have that certificate. But I feel so accomplished!

When I got back all 3 of my gorgeous cats were laying on the chesterfield and it made me so happy to see them first thing.

Pain au chocolat with almond cream from Marie et Guy's French Bakery are one of my favourite things. And I brought one back the other night and Lydia & Minnow came running to see what I was taking out of that paper bag. Minnow sniffed it and got icing sugar on her schnoz.
ladynoremon: (Bekowsky)
Orinally posted on my Tumblr.



Today Minnow went to the vets’ to get her rabies booster. She’d had her leukemia & core vaccinations earlier (where we went to Sears to pick-up an order after), but I prefer her to have things split-up since she has reactions. Anyway, after that we went to the Royal Bank of Canada (Minnow was so pissed that someone had taken the chair by the window she usually sits in at the vets’, by the way. And gave a little dog a dirty look when he urinated on the bottom outside step).

My mom had an appointment at the bank just to confirm something with investments, so it was only going to be about 10 minutes. It was cold today too, and I didn’t want to wait in the car, especially with Minn. So I asked the clerks if I could bring her in while we waited, they said yes, though I think they may have thought I had a small dog instead. I sat down, and Minnow sat on the floor beside me, watching people come & go, and the sidewalk outside. The tellers had to all come investigate, ask her name, and tell her she was pretty. I then took her into Kate’s office during my mom’s appointment. She peeked through the blinds & door vent of the office, and it was so damn cute. Afterwards her & I waited in the car while Mom went to Tim Horton’s. I told her she was so well behaved, and I was so damn proud of her.










I had such a hard time getting the new tag onto Minnow’s harness, as the ring was so small. I registered her at { https://www.soslostpets.com/ } too!

Yeah, Twitpic that I've used since 2009 is shutting-down on the 25TH. So though I might fix some images, a chunk of my images are now going to be broken after it ends.

EDIT---
{ http://s569.photobucket.com/user/lady_noremon/library/for%20LiveJournal/09-14-2014 }

The images from now until Christmas 2012 that I've seen are now on PhotoBucket. I've also fixed some images on Tumblr that also linked to Twitpic. I haven't gone and changed the images on LiveJournal, and I doubt that I will. I might list here the entries effected though, and maybe make comments on the posts with links to the working pictures. But some entries have locked comments, so I'll probably not get to them as I'll probably break the entry if I edit it. A lot of my entries I don't have the .TXT files for handy.

I went to Oaklawn yesterday with my mom. I finally got my insurance refund back from my knee brace, and with the time I've had lately I really needed the excursion. I knew it would exhaust me, and it did, but I was still hella excited.


Here I am feeding an alpaca dried corn.


Peachicks & their mama~ | So graceful? *flump* [He wasn't dead. He was digging a hole in the dirt, and rolling around. Right here he was laying on his side with his legs stuck out.]

Once I've gone through them, more pictures will probably be added to the Facebook album { https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10152204790581876.1073741828.579456875&type=1&l=7faff9650e }. I just thought I would post a few pictures & a "look what I did" here too.

Pointform as I'm hella tired but haven't been updating-updating and since this place is 10 years-old now I probably should. The bright yellow makes me feel better so there is that too.

→I sent my Nintendo 3DS away because the part the replaced in the last repair was sharp on the left side like it had leaked from the mould and not sanded down. I have a Circle Pad Pro and where the side is sharp I cannot hook it onto my system. I was told sanding it myself would void my warranty. But now they are saying they need to replace the system, but are refusing to send it to Washington again where they have the same style systems in stock. So I'm stressed, and had to call twice to confirm that I DONOTWANT a standard coloured replacement. If it comes to worst I'll have to buy the same 25TH anniversary edition off eBay. But I'll also buy a Midnight Purple 3DS to use for everyday since if I drop the cash for a new limited edition I won't be using it no matter how proud I am of it.

→I got a haircut. And new sneakers.

→Online stress stuff going on but it doesn't matter if I get into it.

→My laptop bag finally arrived. And then spent the next 2 weeks out on the clothesline because it reeked of plastic so bad that I couldn't handle it. I've since washed it again and it seems to be tolerable now. I used it when I went up the line Wednesday.

I've learned my ex' is rumoured to be getting married. )

→That said I don't care, being reminded of that time reminds me of others things and it's really not helping just how low I've been feeling. But as I said recently; I won't get into that either.

→I had one specialist appointment finally. Ever since I fell on the stairs and hit my ribs/kidney I've had to go to the washroom more frequently & my urine tests have shown blood without infection. Given my small/as developed as a pre-teen kidneys, and the swelling after the fall it was best to get it looked at. I had x-rays & an ultrasound. The x-rays showed what I suspected that I'd cracked my ribs back then instead of just bruising. 3 ribs actually. The ultrasound didn't show anything bad-bad, but the quality wasn't good so we'll see how the frequency reducing pills help & next tests go before seeing about doing another one. Doctor doesn't suspect anything hella bad, in any case.

→I am awaiting an appointment in Halifax about the other test with whatever is going on with the other things I mentioned before (that I also won't get into), so yeah. It probably won't be for a few more months, but some things are stabilised, some things aren't, and that's that for now.

→I bought a PS3 my PSN is "Lady_Noremon".

→I booked 50 skunks & 15 flamingoes [plastic blow mould lawn ornaments] for my biological mother's 65TH birthday. The Balloon Boutique will come around 11:30PM the night before and set them up on the field by her house and then come pick them up the next evening. I also ordered her a set of earrings, but I doubt they will arrive in time now.

→I got some birthday money early so I bought the PC version of "The Wolf Among Us" to get the physical copy later on, an Action Replay so I can bypass the secure server thing on Last Spectre to get the Weekly Puzzles from the fan server, the brown version of this eyeball ring, a Clear keychain, and a case for my Skylanders [I still want Lightcore Giants Prism Break, Giants Drill Sergent, & the Pirate Seas adventure set].

→My birthday is in 15 days now. I will be 26 year-old o_o

→I've been doing a lot of yardwork. Mostly catching-up on "Welcome to Night Vale" [I'm on "A Story About Them"] while cleaning my garden out, adding dirt, desodding, & planting things (mostly what I started in the house).
My garden. on Twitpic Dollarama flamingo too on Twitpic Welcome. on Twitpic

→I put my new flute playing lobster out down by Armand. I was being silly so I told it he might let it play with him, if he wasn't too pissy.

→We've had a lot more robins around here this year than last. Last year I'd see them around when I was out in town or something, but not around our yards.

→I'm at 93.3% Completion in "L.A. Noire" right now. I just have to replay 2 cases to get 5 Stars in them (3 cases since I'm missing a gun & there is a case which has the possible candidates of what one I'm missing), and to collect the damn remaining gold film reels. I've only collected 2 of them. It will probably be my first Platinum Trophy~ I have few Endings & some Trophies in "Heavy Rain", but I can't read the conversation text well on my bedroom television, and I am not in the mood to play it in the kitchen lately. I enjoyed playing Jack more than Cole, but I still ♥ Bekowsky as a partner (and Biggs).

→I had planned on by now having already taken my WHMIS & the resumé/interview courses, but the case-worker I have now is hard to get in contact with, lost one month of my paperwork, and signed me up for the wrong course last time I did manage to contact. It was supposed to give me more stability but it's just making me mostly more stressed. I have gotten my Food Safety & Handling course, & my St. John Ambulance Level A CPR & First Aid now though.

I decided to Friends' Lock the entry I posted these pictures in originally due to it concerning my biological mother's work, but here are the pictures in an entry by themselves now too.

Anyway we were all dressed-up, so here are some pictures of me in my purple George dress & of me holding my brats. Nicki followed me around the whole time I was getting ready to go adn when I came back and we joked that he probably wanted to come with me.



I recently got SoftPaws for Nick as I've had to take Minnow to the vets' 3 times due to scratched eyes, and he has ripped holes in so many of my good clothes. They are just on his hind claws as though I clip my brats' nails his hind claws are really thick and he can puncture things with them even if they are cut. He managed to get 2 off the 3RD day, and pulled on them the first few but he seems to have gotten use to them. I got him purple as if I give him a choice of a bunch of toys he will almost always choose the ourple or orange ones (Lydia chooses pink, and Minnow isn't as select). I painted my toenails to match his claw caps yesterday too. He came over to me when I showed him, sniffed my toes, and rubbed against my legs.

For Christmas [livejournal.com profile] alchemy_hisoka gave me a vampire themed magnetic poetry kit. I wanted to get a metal clipboard to use it with, but instead found a little handheld whiteboard at Wal*Mart.





I haven't used the poetry set yet, but I bought a 16 colour pack of dry erase markers at Wal*Mart yesterday, and tried the out tonight!





Sadly about 3 of the markers are dried-out, but I called Wal*Mart and will be able to exchange them when I go up to Greenwood next. I drew a picture of Zinnian, and an "ASHLEY SMASH" picture for @TheDazzlingOne.

One of my favourite pictures of one of my favourite "DRAMATICAL Murder" characters {because he's a dork [and because his Scrape problems hit chords for my problems (though originally because he looked like Alfred only with tidier hair & ridiculous tattoos)]}:



I stayed-up hella late the 13TH because it was storming here & Nicki was wanting attention. So I stayed-up & read, then spent most of Saint Valentine's Day with painkillers and sleeping. I had asked my mom previously to pick-up whatever dessert was on special at The Eggplant Café when she got off work because last year the sold out fast [it was chocolate cheesecake], and when she got was 2 huge chocolate cupcakes (one for each of us). I ate a bit of one when I got up and didn't feel well at all after because it was so rich D: I had to go check the mail & pick-up C batteries for my Valentine's present and felt like I was going to vomit while doing so. Frozen pizzas weren't on sale at Graves' ValuFoods so I didn't get one despite having been craving pepperoni pizza for over a week (I couldn't justify to myself buying a slice from Mama Sofia's when on sale a whole frozen one is cheaper).

Cupcake on Twitpic

When I got back I was all excited to set-up the Cat's Meow I got as a gift from The Grant's. I got Nicolas & Lydia all excited too, and started taking a video with my Nintendo 3DS (dirt in my camera's lens). Well the screw was made of cheap metal, but my problem was I didn't have the hand strength at all to turn my screwdriver (or open a stupid bottle of apple juice). So I asked adoptive sister to do it, and she ended-up stripping the screw head so that it couldn't come out. Luckily my mom was still visiting so she took me over to exchange it. Also luckily they had one in a beat-up box that they were alright exchanging since both would be hard to sell. But when I got back I couldn't get it turned at all either. My weakness & aches have been getting worse, expecially the lack of hand strength. Not being able to do the one good thing in awhile I was super excited for was the last straw and I just broke-down because of the fears, stress, events, et cetera, et cetera. I planned to try sitting & throw myself into Bloodlines & Alexander to take my mind off myself & other characters, but adoptive sister decided to be snarky about me being upset and I just lost the will to even turn my laptop on. Finally with determination though the screw came out (relatedly; the screw is pointless in the toy because the battery compartment also has one of those plastic latches)). So I spent the rest of the evening watching all 3 of my brats playing with their new toy, and fixing it whenever they pulled the wand out of its socket, or Nick was sitting on the motor. I also had to sew the yellow flappy thing because they got the seam out from around the hem of it, and the wire that keeps it rigid was poking out.

Got it! on Twitpic Adorable brats. on Twitpic Ass!cat. on Twitpic

Watching my brats play instantly improved my mood, and after watching them for a few hours I went to bed. This is actually the first time in over 24 hours my laptop has been on, and I'm only awake right now because I'm uncomfortable & a bit nauseous. My back is getting a lot better, and as I mentioned in my #Bloodlines2014 posts I'm getting so I can sit for about an hour at a time without it bothering too much (still can't lay on my back, which is why I'm uncomfortable right now as I rolled onto it while asleep). It's mostly discomfort than pain now too, but I am still having to be careful with not overdoing things like lifting heavy stuff. I watched the "Maoyū Maō Yūsha" anime though (behind on "Coronation Street" due to the Hayley business). I decided to watch it after reading that it had a female knight character in it, and was doing with the same cast as "Spice and Wolf". Well said Knight is so awesome O: It didn't fully end with the ending though, more satisfying than the "Spice and Wolf" one, and with the idea that things will continue on off-screen. It also is just from last year so maybe a sequel or OVA is possible. There are light novel & manga series too (like the Holo & merchant story), but I'd rather watch anime (and why I haven't read the Holo & merchant ones).

The Knight on her students thinking about going to war. #Maoy... on Twitpic Knight. #`/*/poihvjk56 on Twitpic #NSFW And there was some non-sexual Knight fanservice. [she w... on Twitpic

Anyway; now off to attempt *sleeps-sleeps* as I'm drifting-off despite things. I've got to take the Cat's Meow .AVIs off my 3DS & Windows Movie Maker them, but I plan to upload them.

ladynoremon: (Nicki)


I might as well share my Tumblr again since with my laptop I've been using it now. I planned to just use it to claim my user-name. I'm not uploading my own art/pictures there though because of the quality/resizing issue & how hard it is to find the source of something. I don't Follow any peeps unless they Follow me first because of anxieties that they won't want me to. Most of my posts are Queued. Either from 'add to queue' or by scheduling them at random or times that my synaesthesia associates with the image. Like Clear pictures have a lot of 8's or 2's. Dio day is the 5TH because 5 is red & Dio is red. My theme is modified from Greyness, but I messed around with the HTML & options a lot. [livejournal.com profile] ahnjehleehn uses Greyness, and I am fond of the 'go to page' option with it. I added the dividers, the spacing between posts, the bolding, having page titles have a summary/content, the avatars on Notes, and various other things. I fail at a lot of HTML things, and don't understand Tumblr's block codes, but I got it working well enough. I used to have Default. Here is one of my favourite pictures I found in the past while, because I don't really have capacity for much else.

Anyway, I am lonely, weak, & so fed-up.
