Happy 6th Anniversary

Six years since I've started this thing.

I'm doing God knows what now, but I'm starting a new blog.

http://missjenn.vox.com

I might update this thing from time to time, but I'm really hoping I can stick with the Vox. Oh, and my professional blog, too. Almost at two years. Woohoo.

It's dangerous for a single woman to live in a large city. She always has to watch her back, keep alert and never let her guard down.

Well, tonight, the inevitable happened to me .... I was the victim of a robbery.

I won't go into much detail other than to say it happened in an area I walk through almost every day. I should have known better than to think walking through that area close to 9 p.m. would be OK. I disregarded the fact that lowlifes are a problem and loiter in the square constantly. I didn't even think.

When I was approached from behind, my mind went blank. It all happened so fast that I didn't know what to do. I handed over my wallet and my pin number to my ATM card. I didn't see a weapon, but he ordered me not to turn around. The object that initially poked me in the back could have even been his hand, but I don't even know. I walked away unscathed and reported the incident to the security guard at the parking garage across the plaza. We cancelled my card after a police officer showed up and I filed a report.

I'm lucky to be alive. I think a higher being was definitely with me tonight and it makes me appreciative of life. I don't think I'll ever be able to walk alone again during the nighttime hours.

I felt the need to share my story while it's still fresh in my mind. I'm still in shock, as you would probably guess. I never dreamt that I would be in this situation ... not in a million years. If there's anything I want anyone to get from all of this, it's to please be careful. Even when you think you're safe and nothing could happen, you're really not. So please, single women (and men in cases because you guys get robbed too), always make sure that if you're going to be out at night, be out with someone else. Never let your guard down. If you ever find yourself in this situation (and I hope to God not), don't try to be a hero. It's better to lose something as trivial as a piece of plastic rather than lose your life.

Hey Drew-

You wouldn't happen to know if the new Cleveland team is looking for anyone for their Community Relations Dept. would you? ;-)

Stepping stone to the Avs one day? I'd take it!

Changes

Well, being home royally sucks. I start at Toys R Us soon. At least I can make some money to pay off the bills I'm severely behind on.

I'm still trying to find a job in the Burgh. It's pretty hard right now. I'm still planning on graduate school this spring, but there may be a change. Instead of Duquesne, I think I may apply to Point Park. I'd really like to go to DU, but it's just hella expensive. $732 per credit hour right now. In addition, I'm not Catholic and I don't want to be forced to comply with their strict rules. I'm ultimately there to learn, but if I ended up living on campus, I wouldn't want to be treated like a five-year old. I get enough of that here at home. Oh yeah, their apartments are fricking ridiculous! $1060 a month for a furnished 1-BR, $960 for an unfurnished. I could find a new apartment downtown and pay a lot less (and I'm not even talking the crappy apts downtown).

Point Park offers an accelerated program so I can complete a degree in a year. If for whatever reason I can't, I have the traditional two year option. I think the courses are held on Fridays and Saturdays which means I could have the week open to intern or work. Sounds like a pretty decent deal.

I was comparing tuition, room and board costs and even with living on campus, I'd be paying at least $5,000 less a semester than I would at DU.

I'm just trying to decide now whether I want the MBA in Management or Sports, Arts and Entertainment Management. If I go the SAEM track, I'll need to take a standardized test and get a third letter of recommendation. If I do Management, I'll only need two letters of recommendation and won't have to take any tests. I'm leaning more toward SAEM 'cause I'd like to work for an Arts org. and it always seems as if they want someone with at least a Masters. Still, I have that dream of working for a sports team. It would definitely be a big help.

Well, that's the latest update. I have to find out when Rowan offers the MAT so I can take it whenever.

I just need some stability in my life again. Sheesh.

I have found the most BEAUTIFUL cat ... She's perfect and there's no way she's still going to be at this Ohio shelter by the time I move back here. :(
