>(please excuse my blog while it undergoes a major overhaul, and i attempt to teach myself HTML all over again. this stuff is hard.)
when i was younger, i used to be really lucky. in 4th grade, i won the grand prize at my school’s annual book fair – $50 of books for me, and $50 of books for my classroom. i was in heaven. fast forward to 8th grade, when i was lucky enough to get through to my local radio station, reiterate the top 10 songs of the night, and win 2 tickets to the upcoming aerosmith concert. (i sold the tickets — too young to attend/appreciate…turns out aerosmith pulled one over on concertgoers and put the stage on the lawn, which gave my lucky ticket buyers front row seats…).
anyway, i feel like i’ve been lucky my whole life. until now.
i’m moving to philadelphia next week. i don’t have a job (but i have an interview). it’s taken forever for this to happen, with lots of hurdles and bumps along the way. my car is falling apart (luckily, M+D have graciously helped me acquire a new one), and i’ll barely break even when i have to send in my tax check next week.
when did my luck run out? what did i do wrong? i’m just so frustrated.
i need a lucky charm.
