Its Been Awhile…

Hey Wolfpack,

Just wanted to give a little update on whats been going on in life. Currently my days have been filled with school and work and more school. So I haven’t had a lot of time to write out the next chapter of Alenshia. DO NOT fret though, I have a very nice easy semester at the moment ahead of me, so I should be all good for the coming months to bang out some new chapters to release for you guys.

Besides that I reached my fourth half-semester (as I am taking a reduced course load) So I only have one more year left until I graduate as a full fledged vet tech! Of course there will be examinations and registering and what not but for the most part, I will be excited to carry on in life working in my field. You never know, might find me at your vet hospital/clinic working away ūüėČ

The kittens are doing well, they are now a year old, going to be 2 in April. That’s Bruce being an awesome model. They are getting sooo big and loving life. Talia is as chunky as ever, although Colin and I try as hard as we can to monitor her weight issue. But to be honest, I kinda love her as her chunky self anyway, gives her personality. Kia and Bruce are more independent and not as attention seeking as Talia but they still love to cuddle when the opportunity arises. Bruce loves attacking my school papers, pens and sitting on my laptop, which is why I had to get a new one. My new laptop should be more efficient for traveling and writing out these blogs, as well as editing videos for the channel. Its the new Asus Zenbook, known as the Macbook killer as it’s got all the same properties and more of the Mac but at a lesser cost. I love it, so far it has served me faithfully.

In the months to come, I have a lot of trips planned out so be on the lookout for new vlog videos coming soon! In March, I am traveling to London, Ontario for the OAVT conference with my colleague Alyssa, going to be super fantastic road trip. Last year the theme was Teamology, so I can’t wait to see what this one will come up with. I even made a blog post about my last year’s adventure at the conference so check it out here:¬†https://kamgabbyjblog.wordpress.com/2016/03/06/the-oavt-conference/

In April, I plan to head to Cuba with my awesome co-worker Rachel. It’ll be my FIRST time heading out of the borders of Canada! (I know I’m lame lolz, but traveling was never a thing my parents did when I was younger so now that I am old enough to do it on my own, I plan to travel as much as I can, whenever I get the chance)

And that’s about it, hopefully I can fit in a youtube video before the vlogs here and there. I shall have to see, I am looking into getting some new video editing software, do you guys have any suggestions? Just something that is simple to use, with nice features and compatible with windows.

Hope your all having an amazing day,

My Newest Novel

Well today was it. I posted my first novel for public viewing. I have to say I was and am still extremely nervous about it. All I can think about is if people are going to like it. I can take constructive criticism, however¬†sometimes people take criticism into all out attack. Which is just plain mean and cruel, yet the world is full of cruel people. ¬†What I am mostly worried about though is not the general pop, but my friends and family. Their opinions matter the most to me, what they think and comment will help change¬†how the book¬†is written. Don’t get me wrong, the book with def stay my¬†style of writing and always have my¬†main views and inputs¬†into it. However, some of my friends are brilliant writers and their feedback is going to help shape this novel to¬†the brilliance that I want it to be.

Whenever I walk into a book store, I always pictured a book that I wrote sitting on one of the feature¬†stands, or in the¬†window, displayed for the world to see. I dream of book signings and meeting fans, taking selfies with them. Eventually hitting the big screens with my¬†novels becoming scripts hence¬†big feature films. Walking down that red carpet, meeting celebs and going to parties. Yeah that sounds like awesome fun. However, although it¬†is a dream, it is just that. A dream. In all honesty, its not a career I choose for myself,¬†Vet Tech will always be the number one answer for me. But¬†I also think, what if?¬†And you know what,¬†if some publisher/editor/agent came up to me and asked if I wanted to take my book to the next level, I would jump at the chance. As long as at the end of the day¬†I could always go back to my normal life of working as a Vet Tech in a small clinic, doing mobile work on¬†farms. That is¬†my real dream. And I can’t wait for it to get started.

Hey if your interested check out the prologue that I just uploaded, first chapter comes out later tomorrow well..*checks clock* today actually lolz. And let me know what ya’ll think ūüôā thanks so much for the support! Hope you like it as well.

 

Ya’ll have a goodnight,

A New Job

(Oh wow its been awhile since I have posted something, but fret not I am here. :3)

So throughout my working life, I have only managed to have one part-time job working in retail, frankly it was a good job when I started but with changes in management and new policies that are coming around, its starting to become a chore and a dredge in the back of my mind to get out the house and head over to it. So I decided to start looking elsewhere for new employment.

It’s not easy, especially where I live, its a very small town. And most jobs have been taken already by others, or there are older people who don’t want to retire just yet staying in that position. And¬†if that didn’t make matters worse, on top of that school restrains my possible work schedule and that’s not including mandatory volunteer hours for my program along with clinic hours. Sigh…. :/

Basically my life for the past few months has been researching on Monster, Workopolis, Indeed etc. to find something. (If anyone is in the Bolton area, hey let me know if there’s a job available near ya! XD) Although searching online is easy, as every company is now switching to online forms, its also difficult because many others are applying as well, and sometimes you don’t even get a chance to get an interview with that manager/owner, because someone’s resume looks better online then yours does. It’s actually kind of unfair because you can be the most hardest working person, aka someone like me. But you don’t have the experience on paper to necessarily be “fit” for the job. Even if your dedicated and willing to learn fast to be appropriate for that job, again…also me…sigh… ūüė¶

Thankfully, there are “easy to join companies” like Younique, Scentsy, etc. that you put some effort in and can make a profit. I am currently with Scentsy, so if anyone is reading please check out my website (https://gabbyjansen.scentsy.ca/) They¬†really do have amazing stuff, so feel free to browse!

However, with¬†jobs like these its not¬†guaranteed because you have to find clientele, and sometimes with advertising your company/website, people can get annoyed with you. Saying your hustling or swindling and honestly we aint, we’re just trying to make some money too in this world that unfortunately runs on¬†it :/. So for all of my fellow consultants out there trying to make it with¬†a consulting company, I tip my hat off to¬†ya!¬†Because not everyone knows what we go through.

Have you ever had a¬†job you hated? Wanted to switch to a different one so bad? Let me know it the comments. Also if you are interested in buying, PM me or comment ūüôā¬†or send me a message on my website, Ill be more then happy to reply.

 

Happy Hunting and Buying,

Kamaria J.

Back at it Again!

Exercise….literally the bane of my existence. You wanna do it because you know its healthy for you and that it’ll make you hot. But the time that¬†it takes¬†and the effort to get dressed, drive over and get inside that gym just makes ya cringe. Honestly, I’ve had this year long membership with Goodlife¬†Fitness and I think I’ve gone to the gym maybe 10 times¬†so far.¬†However! I am starting to get back on track with a twice a week system. I’ve made a¬†promise to myself to go for at least an hour and 1/2 to the gym every¬†Tuesday’s and Thursday’s, starting now. I know it doesn’t sound like much,¬†but for me¬†it is quite a bit. I work part time, go to school full-time, and I’m always out and about. So getting myself to the gym¬†has always been an issue :$….

I think the biggest thing for me though is my¬†anxiety, I do have general¬†anxiety disorder and whenever I enter a place I¬†just¬†feel everyone’s eyes on me. Like¬†yes, I know I’m bigger but I’m trying to make a difference in my life, and they look at you¬†as if your not welcome there like >.> really?! bitch I will fight you! >.< However,¬†I just¬†put on my overhead headphones and¬†try and drown out the stares.

What do you guys do to cope with anxiety? and people staring at you? Also, does anyone else that reads this go to the gym too? Let me know in the comments :$

The OAVT Conference

So Friday and Saturday of this week was a blast. During those days, I went to the Annual OAVT Conference in Etobicoke/Toronto area. OAVT is the Ontario Association of Veterinarian Technicians, which I am currently a student member of. For the conference,¬†we were fed¬†breakfast and lunch including dessert and drinks. (Which btw was amazing! XD) In addition, there were lectures to attend and booths with representatives from different companies to talk to and to get free shit X$. I mean come on, who doesn’t love free stuff? :P. For both days I attended with my friend Hailey from my program at school, which was how we found out about the conference.¬†And both days we were twinning so hard core XD.

 

 

The amount of free shit I got was amazing XD There was soo much to grab and take home.

And that was just the first day XD, the second day I didn’t get as much because I visited all of those booths already but nonetheless I still got quite a bit. In addition, I also purchased a hand made stethoscope. I had passed by this booth twice and I was so curious about it so I finally decided to stop by and see what it was about. The lady was selling hand painted stethoscope heads with all the proper technical equipment to boot. So it was both unique and functional for me in practice/school. At first I was set on getting a head with my zodiac sign on it. However, the only colour that was available was bright orange, and that didn’t match my (of course! XD) purple/lavender tubing. So with that out of my head I couldn’t decide which one I wanted. Seeing me struggle, she pulled out one that she said was the only one she ever made, so its the first of its kind and the only one in existence around the world. So that sealed the deal for me (with of course help from my friends Elena and Hailey cause I’m such an indecisive person XD). image1

Beautiful eh? I am super happy with my purchase, and since I got it at the conference I was given at 15% discount! I’d recommend everyone to check out her website :3. Especially for people in the medical field who want a snazzy unique look. All in all I had a fabulous time and I can’t wait to do it all again next year.

What did you do this weekend? Let me know in the comments!

Stuffed Animals: The Little Humans We Sleep With

Stuffed animals, Stuffies, Bears, Lovers, whatever you call your special friend (Hey I ain’t judging ūüėČ ) for almost any person, they enter into our lives to stay. There is just something about holding a plush, cotton or silky toy that calms us right down. For me it was a way of coping growing up without a pet throughout my childhood. (My parents worked all the time and I was always away at school or being babysat by my grandparents so no pets at all, I know! tragic right? :/) It’s also a way to be comforted when your sad, when you just need a giant hug from something cute and soft.

When I say they enter to stay, its because its sooo hard to get rid of just one. I know that I have over at least 100 stuffed animals laying in my room and closet and I can’t part with any of them because of the memories and times that I’ve shared and had with them. I like to regard them as Little Humans who are a person’s first best friend. When your a baby, what’s the first thing your parents buy you? That’s right, a stuffed animal. So having this toy with you throughout your growing life; you talk to it, tell it stories, hold it while crying, run around the house with it chasing after something.¬†Its there through everything. A non-judging, all-secret-holding little human that¬†(of course ūüėČ ) totally talked back to¬†you ūüėõ

Even the thought of my mom asking me to clean out my closet, which we all know is mom speak for you better throw out shit cause you have too much shit, makes me cringe. And of course, the addiction of having them all because every time you walk into a store or a holiday roles around that’s all you can think about is adding another to that collection. And hopefully getting it without your mom noticing, so she doesn’t comment stupid things like ok you got this one, now you need to throw 3 out to have that 1. Like COME ON MOM!!! What da hell man? X$

So I spend my adult days, looking and going through my little friends. Of course I aint getting rid of any one of them, and of course I’m using the excuse of Ill do it tomorrow or Oh! Ill give that to my kid one day! (Yeah right, like my kids are getting my stuffies lolz go buy your own ūüėČ lmfao) But I digress, stuffed animals in general are¬†just awesome to have and keep. And for anyone that¬†thinks its weird trust me, go out, buy yourself a stuffed animal, and watch how fast you start cuddling with it, talking to it and naming it. Its human nature :P.

So¬†what’s your favourite stuffy?¬†(I can’t choose¬†honestly, but if I could say a category I’d say my¬†horse ones :P) Let me know in the comments!! ūüėÄ

The Jealousy is Strong with This One

(Ooooo Star Wars reference ftw. ;P)

Jealousy. Oh man its a difficult topic. Why so difficult? It’s because jealousy hits and affects people in soo many different ways. Where¬†one¬†person may see another’s jealousy unjustified, that¬†person is feeling it all too real. As¬†human beings we all¬†feel jealousy. It’s in our nature to be possessive over¬†certain aspects and if¬†that object,¬†person, or place is taken from us,¬†jealousy will set in.

So where am I going with this topic?¬†Well today I felt the worst kind of jealousy, well in my mind is the worst. Unfortunately, since I live¬†far away from my boyfriend, I have to¬†leave my kittens that we adopted together, from the animal¬†shelter at his place.¬†With my brother being allergic, and my parents not allowing pets in the house, there was no where¬†else for them to stay. Now I don’t have any issues whatsoever with leaving them with my boyfriend, I¬†know that with him they are safe and receiving the best care that they can. However, (and this is where jealousy seeped¬†in)¬†its obvious who they now gravitate towards. Because I can only stay for a few days sometimes only a week out of every month due to school, the kittens spend¬†more time with him and his dad then they do with me. So even though I’m their mom, it doesn’t always feel like it because they would rather sit on his lap or cuddle with him or nuzzle him. So this morning was no exception when my boy¬†Bruce (Batman) decided to lean up against my boyfriend in bed¬†instead of me, slept beside¬†him all night and then there was¬†just me…feeling¬†very alone and jealous.

Now I¬†know they don’t mean anything by it. Come on, how can I blame a cat for loving someone more that they see everyday? That wouldn’t be¬†fair at all. But I guess, its just the motion of the act and the feelings starting to set in. Sigh, I cant wait for the day when I can move in permanently and they can see me everyday…

Now as I said this is a difficult topic, cause there will be a lot of you¬†wolves out there that disagree with how I’m¬†feeling, that my jealousy is unjustified and wrong. However, its a free world, free speech, and this is my blog, soo yeah ;).

What jealousy have you wolves felt today? Let me know in the comments.
