Ok, so these last few days have been pretty busy, since I’m new to the Orange County area, I am trying to find myself a full time job, so a lot of time has been spent submitting applications, perfecting resumes and cover letters etc…..Sadly, I’m not yet making money as a full time blogger for this site, so I need to find something to pay the bills! See those ads on the side of this page? If you really like me, click on them. haha
