Found this on another site...thought it was worth a read...

Let's Watch A Girl Get Beaten To Death. This is not my blog, but I don’t have a blog, or a space, and I’d like to be heard for a bit.

Last month seventeen year old Dua Khalil was pulled into a crowd ofyoung men, some of them (the instigators) family, who then kicked andstoned her to death. This is an example of the breath-taking oxymoron“honor killing”, in which a family member (almost always female) ismurdered for some religious or ethical transgression. Dua Khalil, whowas of the Yazidi faith, had been seen in the company of a SunniMuslim, and possibly suspected of having married him or converted. Thatshe was torturously murdered for this is not, in fact, a particularlyuncommon story. But now you can watch the action up close on CNN.Because as the girl was on the ground trying to get up, her facenothing but red, the few in the group of more than twenty men who werenot busy kicking her and hurling stones at her were filming the eventwith their camera-phones.

What's been up with you? Well, here's what's been up with me...

Not a lot and a whole lot has gone on since I last posted...

These past few months have been devoted to making changes to my life, basically. You all know that I've been relatively unsatisfied with my job. The company, the environment, the pay are all things that I just haven't been very happy with. So, I've been searching for a new job. Also, I've been relatively unhappy with my current living situation. My roommate is a great person. I just didn't like sharing a space with people who aren't very tidy. Plus, I want to be up in the city where all the action is. Also, my girlfriend has spent the past few months in Europe, adding to my general level of unhappiness with the current situation in my life. I mean, don't get me wrong, I haven't been depressed or anything like that. But, if you take the fact that I want a change of pace, in terms of a job, as well as being unhappy with my current living situation...imagine taking away my sun on top of that. That's pretty much where the state of my mind has been.

Around February, though, I found a new sense of motivation to get some things done in my life. I started reading "Awaken the Giant Within" by Anthony Robbins. That is one hell of a motivational reading. It got me compelled to take action in my life and make some changes. First off, I started working out everyday. I know that wasn't mentioned as a problem in my life earlier but, my general health was something that I was beginning to become concerned with. I know that sitting at a desk for 8.5 hours a day while not getting much exercise, as well as eating a lot of unhealthy food was going to eventually take it's toll on my body. So, I cut back on eating as much bad for you food as I used to. I try to eat a deli sandwich for lunch instead of something deep fried, instead of bacon, eggs, and fried potaotes, my breakfasts consist of peanut butter toast or oatmeal. I lift weights three times a week, now. I'm beginning to start up a running regimen. That was step one in turning my life around.

I got lucky in terms of finding a new place to live. I was originally worried that there would be no way that I could afford to live on my own on the current salary that I'm making. So, that was also more stress in terms of finding a new job. Then, one day Derek (one of my fraternity brothers) dropped hint that he was looking to move out of his parent's place. So, that was a bit of a relief, because now I have a greater chance of finding something viable to live in. Plus, with our combined spending power, I could afford to live in the city. :-) Also, I know that Derek is a relatively clean person and by us being friends already, I think it wil be much easier to work out whatever kinks we run into while living together. In terms of being motivated, for the past few weeks, every day after work I have been researching apartments online and setting up appointments for us to check out places on Sundays. This past sunday, however, I got particularly lazy and made an appointment at www.chicagoapartmentfinders.com. The person we had was really good, Derek and I applied for the very first place that he showed us. So, right now, we're waiting for a response to see if the place is ours.

Step 3, of course, was finding a new job. Upon beginning to read Anthony Robbins's book, one of the very first things I did was remake my resume. Once I rewrote it, I submitted it to two professionals that I'm close with (Danielle and Dwight, for those that know them). They helped me rewrite and refine it. I then starting submitting my ass off. I'm pretty sure that it was just the timing of things, basically, but up until the past two weeks, I haven't been getting much response. However, since the past two weeks, i have gotten a couple of emails and phone calls. I even went and talked to a guy at an IT staffing agency who thinks he's got a great position for me. So, I'm waiting to hear about when i'm supposed to go in for the interview.

Finally, my girlfriend is only going to be out of the country for another month or so. I am fairly excited to see her return. Nothing drives you crazier like feeling like a core part of you has been removed and placed thousands of miles away from you. Unfortunately, though, there isn't much I can do in that situation except wait it out.

Well, that's my life, right now, in a nutshell. Mostly just a lot of waiting. I took all the action I can, at the moment, and now I'm just waiting. Waiting to hear about the job. Waiting to hear about a new residence. And waiting for the return of my heart.
