"Oy, let me see your calorie card!" The skinny man at the hotdog stand demanded, holding my hotdog just out of reach. I sighed and dug the plastic out of my pocket, handing it to him with a sour grimace on my face.  I was sure I had already exceeded my allotted 1500 calories for today, but I was just so darn hungry.  Seriously, what was one hotdog going to do to my figure anyway? He shook his head as he swiped it through the scanner.  "Sorry girlie.  This hot dog is 242 calories.  You only have 10 calories left for today."  He shooed me away in preference of those with enough calories on their card to afford his food. My stomach grumbled i

It meets Wednesday evenings from 6 to 8pm, and it runs for six weeks. Today was the first day. Holy crap, glass blowing is fun! Frustrating at first, trying to figure out how hot to run the flame, how to control the heat (a mix of gas and oxygen), how to hold the glass rod, how to move it, is it hot enough, whoops I blew too hard and now it's lop-sided. Good times. We get to bring home any projects we want, so I brought home two little bulbs that I managed to make. The cats thi

It's time to re-think my strategy

Last week I lost my job at a public access tv station. I knew a few months in advance that it was going to happen (my position was funded by a grant that ran out), so I started the job hunt pretty early. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to secure a position, so now I find myself unemployed. The outlook is pretty bleak for recent television production grads. Which is why I've decided to take the Michigan government up on its offer and head back to school for some more training, to expand my skillset. I'm currently working on my FAFSA (frustrating!), and I just sent in an application for Kellogg Community College. My plan is to get a web design
