Funeral Arranger?

In my few months of job/career searching, I came upon one that's been growing in demand. It's odd, but it's a Funeral Arranger. I've looked it up a few times and it says that there's no particular criteria for it, and you do some personal training with mentors, company bonuses and tips, and a yearly income of $75k or higher.

I really want to call in about this, but I'm not sure. If I can get a car I could totally do it, but I feel weird about it. Is that weird? It didn't have any specific age and I could talk to people and console and arrange things, I'm good at organizing.

Now I'm rambling my thoughts out to here. Anyone have some advice? I sort of feel like it's a "sign" that I should at least call up about it, since how often do you randomly come across an add for a Funeral Arranger job? Haha.

And I'm sorry I haven't posted much in a bit; it's getting to the last few weeks of school and I've gone into a sort of "I want to hide under a rock" mode with all the pressure of finding classes, finding a career to pursue, finding a part time job, and trying to find a goddang car. You guys remember those issues with my grandma and the car buying, right? Well imagine that times 100 and that's what I'm in NOW. Cannot into win...

So I should be up and running when break comes along.

Like The Internet?

Yeah? Me too, it's pretty swell. Well, if you're in the USA, you may want to pay some close attention to this. I feel as if this bill isn't getting the attention it desperately needs. See, Congress has made this very, very vague bill (that is currently being talked over) about IP/Internet Censorship.

What's that? Well, to make it simple, this bill would make it illegal to: cover a musicians song, download any MP3 without paying (which I don't have a problem with this one), link to any copyrighted material, posting yourself singing a song online, and much more that is talked about here in this thread from a friend of mine in the Coffee Shop.

See, this bill is very gray. They're pretty much nit picking, and not making it clear on what will be illegal, and what we can be deemed a "felon" for doing. They don't say how to avoid doing these things. This bill could very easily ruin many blogs, vlogs, and pretty much every future artist out there. We everyday Internet users know that it's extremely hard for a musician to get noticed, and how almost all of them start out is by covering songs of their favorite bands. We also know that many musicians don't mind their fans covering their songs, and love that they're inspiring people to create their own. We also know that the money gained by someone buying their song off iTunes does not go directly to them, but their record label. The biggest way they make money is merchandise and concerts.

Anyway, slightly sidetracked here, this bill could potentially fuck over major sites such as YouTube and Blogger. If this bill passes, I could get my blog deleted because I love using lyrics and quotes that relate to my posts, and I cite them.

I'm not sure if this bill is only for things you do not cite, or if it's for anything that you don't own and have created. Like I said, the bill is very vague and it's hard to interpret.

So please, fellow Americans, sign the below petition.


*Note: I'm not saying I am in favor of torrenting/free downloading/etc.; I'm not in favor for the rest of this bill, and neither is anyone else, except our lovely government.

Dying Star.

So, I'm pretty sure I just watched a star die.

And then come back to life.

But anyway. In the corner of my eye, I see this big twinkling light outside of my window in the sky. At first I thought it was this meteor that was supposed to pass through our area a few hours ago, but it wasn't moving. It looked like it was moving, but I think that's because I was staring at it so long. So then I thought it was a UFO! But that didn't last too long. Lol.

It looked like a burst of light, a few times the size of a normal star. It had little tints of orangeish-red color, and some blue and another color I oddly can't identify... o.O I've read stuff like this before, in books where they're trying to describe a color not known to man. I'm like, how can you not generalize a color? ROYGBIV, it's not hard! But then there's this star outside my window, and I can't tell if it was a purply, greenish, or yellow color. Maybe blue, I don't know, it was a really pretty color. Mostly it's orange though. Like in this article about dying stars with jellyfish rings (I know, it's weird).

So after looking at it for nearly an hour now (bed is for wimps!) it's gotten significantly smaller. It went from obvous-shiny-sparkly-thing-in-the-sky to a pin prick of twinkling light. And then it finally completely disappeared.

And now it's back. I think the clouds just got in the way, hard to tell, but it's still going in all of it's sparkly orange glory, just tinier. I wish I could stay up to watch it completely vanish, but alas I have school tomorrow :( And even worse, it's a pointless class I'm taking for extra units (and FAFSA cash, shhh lol) at freakin' 9 a.m.

Nothing. (PIX)

"What would you do if your son was at home, crying all alone on the bedroom floor 'cause he's hungry? And the only way to feed him is to sleep with a man for a little bit of money; and his daddy's gone, in and out of lock down, I ain't got a job now, he's just smokin' rock now; so for you this is just a good time, but for me this is what I call life." - Bastille What Would You Do (City High Cover)
