Archive for the ‘Important Updates…’ Category

I want to thank the 50 visitors that I have had to my blog in the last couple days. that’s a big step for a new blogger especially in only three days. You guys are awesome. So, again thank you and refer my to your friends!

Well, the day at the unemployment office didn’t go so well as planned. They told me that I had to reapply on November 1st, and then go through the process all over gain. I wanted to have an out-of-mind moment and slap him in the face for that crock of bull, but I decided to play the sweetheart role as I usually do. I don’t understand the process of unemployment insurance anyway. Let’s see if I can use my critical thinking skills to decipher and make due with this chained process. Okay, so you register on an employment website to possibly obtain a job in states that have approximately 8-15% unemployment rates and then you must file every sunday or monday depending on the last number in your social security number and possibly go in for an eligibility review. But until you receive a plausible amount for your benefits, you are stuck in purgatory like I am at the moment. How is it possible that I was eligible for benefits since October of last year and they are just sending me a letter saying my benefits expire on Halloween. I feel an ounce of error or illiteracy in these unemployment offices, but how can I respond when they are the ones doing the job for those that are unemployed? Woe is me, my friends… woe is freaking me.

On a good note, halloween is coming in two days. Can we say whatever? I have learned to grow out of the halloween festitivities unless I am taking my niece and nephew trick-o-treating. I remember a couple years ago we had an activity at my university where the faculty’s children will go around to the residence halls and go trick-o-treating. My roommate and I dressed up in tall sheets with black eyes and played scary halloween music and was like… having so much fun. I remember it because the kids loved my laptop stand most of all besides the candy. Anyway, we are going to a masquerade party which is the equivalence to the adults’ version of a Halloween spooktacular and I am still without an outfit. I have a black shirt and some leggings but I don’t wanna be too basic. I wanted a dress. My brother stated that he may come and give me some money so I can purchase a dress, but I will see it when it happens. I am going because my best friend of NINE years turns 23 this monday and we always celebrate her birthday as the big event… So, I will post pictures when the time comes.

On another another note, I have been watching Daria episodes all week during breakfast and I really miss that show. It would serve young adults proficiently if Daria was allowed back on air because I think the tramps of Degrassi are getting a little out of hand. BTW, does anyone remember when Aubrey Graham aka “DRAKE” played Jimmy on Degrassi like a few years ago and know he is a big rap star.? Talk about small world… how can an avid degrassi fan who went from acting like a straight but cute lame become an aspiring rapper? I guess it doesn’t take much. Now don’t get me wrong, Drake is definitely a virtuoso… he has talents in every area possible but it’s hard to take him out of the role we both grew up viewing him on. I try to sometimes, but it’s a little more difficult than I imagine.

And lastly, I decided to get a couple Associate Degrees possibly in Accounting and Early Care and Education because I know I am not ready to transfer to another state for grad school yet. When I am ready, I will make that leap of faith but until then I will get more adept at the skills that are quite marketable do my current state. I also received a call from a location that wants to give me a CNA training job. Things are looking fantastic for me, maybe I wouldn’t even need that unemployment. We will see my friends, we will see. Well, I have to go and cry because the Sims 3 is taking forever to download… my parents needs to turn the internet back on cause this wireless connection in our apartment complex is quite dull… but as Dora the Explorer and Diego says “Hasta Luego…”

BUT WAIT… remember to add me on twitter @virgough !


My DirtballHow adorkably cute is this species: No, it is not a dog or a guinea pig. It’s the new love of my life… Dirtball. You all can figure out what he is, but yes he is magnificiently beautiful. We got him yesterday and I have fallen in love with the little munchkin. So, have the image peaked your interest yet? It should because this beautiful baby is definitely a sweetheart. Of course, it takes time to bond with him but I am anxious. I got some battle scars on my shoulders this morning because he is use to hiding in my hair but I have my hair platted in three braids… maybe I shouldn’t make any drastic changes to my appearance so he will know who I am… who knows, he’s freaking sexy anyway. He gets about “______________________” long with droopy ears… I cannot wait until he grows up for real! Anyway, the emancipation of ‘dirtball’ is in full throttle… HOWEVER, the little demon has been hiding behind my television and I am for certain biting the electrical cords… He will just have to learn himself… HE IS ADORABLE OMG. He just hopped up and did flips… I love him! 🙂

In other news, my life sucks. I still haven’t fundraised the monies to acquire my dress for the masquerade ball this weekend. I guess I will have to sew up my shirt and maybe ask for 20$ and buy a pair of tights and shorts maybe. The singer Lloyd will be there and I wanted to stand out because I have been his biggest fan since the year 2004 when he first arrived in the R&B scene with Murda Inc. I know all of his songs by heart and I wanted to have the opportunity to be seen in a crowd of other smaller women at the party, but that seems to not be my niche. Maybe just being there and enjoying him as his fan is enough. I hope it is enough, I don’t want to be on the backburner this saturday.

ADD ME ON TWITTER @VIRGOUGH… I am liking this new thing called twitter. It’s funner than i’d imagine. 🙂

Currently listening to: “I Love Her” by Raphael Saadiq

Les Virgough
My muse.

I woke up this morning with an unusual feeling of achievements… I was anxious to continue on my search for grad school, send out some letters of recommendations for said grad school to my noteworthy professors at COLUMBIA COLLEGE, and enjoy some company at my apartment. And then I woke up. I realized that my cellphone was off for the morning, my back ached with some pains, I am broke as a joke, and I have no job. So, you can just imagine what I am sorta going through at the moment, but who cares about that stuff right? I am alive… so one would think. I am terribly behind in the world due to my lack of networking. I feel this is only temporary though, I just will go nuts without my phone. My mother and me made an agreement that until I get a job, she will furnish my cellphone bill…. yeah. I am disconnected now. I can’t be upset though, it is my fault I am without a job or whatever.

So, let’s get back to this blog here. I am very excited to be creating this blog because I am tired of writing in my journal. I need to implement and enhance my 75 WPM and keep my fingers moving at all times. This blog will secretly reveal my current woes and joes, some fashion finds and deals, picture blogging, graduate school tips and tricks (GRE INCLUDED), sims 3 updates, etc… it’s basically an all-around blog for an all-around virgo. I haven’t decided whether I want to keep “Virgough” as my main title or make it “Virgo-UGH!” which is a little more bloggy type. I am a virgo by default and I love love love love LOVE my sign with all my heart. So, that will come later, but for now I have to get some friends on my blogroll and enjoy wordpress once again for all that it is worth. But first, I shall go and make some pancakes and continue watching “She’s out of my league”. Good day all.
