It's coming together!

This morning, I attended the Alaka'i grand opening.  It was good to see my boys.  I met a lot of new people.  I made some really good contacts!  A gentleman, whom I met in October of last year, was there and offered to hire me as a contractor.  It would be a part-time gig that I could work when I want.  I really like the guy and his business ideas.  I'm going to do it!  I told my mom about it.  She and I both agree that pretty soon, I am going to have more jobs than I know what to do with.

There is a job at the Waikiki Aquarium for an Events & Membership Manager position.  I REALLY, REALLY want that job.  That would be too cool!!!  I plan on walking my resume in tomorrow rather than mail it.  

David is too cool.  He helped me move my boxes over to my apartment this evening.  My bed will be delivered and the cable will be turned on on Wednesday.  We will stay here tonight and tomorrow night.  But come Wednesday night, we will be at our apartment in Hawai'i!!!!!  We took a nap over there yesterday.  It is definitely in a much busier area than where we are currently staying.  

The good news is that there is a small shopping center just right around the corning.  It has a little grocery store, coffee shop, movie rental place, Pizza Hut, Sushi Man (which is delicious.  I at there yesterday!!!!), a Korean barbeque, Subway, another restaurant, a laundromat, and a little place called the "Vintage Wine Cellar".  I am in LOVE!!  I cruised through the Wine Cellar.  Oh... My... Goodness...  They had labels and wines of which I had never heard.  I felt like a kid in a candy store, all giddy and stuff.  I can't wait to get my place put together, go buy me a little treasure, and sit and sip it like I am a queen.  

Well, that is today's update.  I guess I'll post more later.

Mahalo (thank you in Hawaiian) for visiting!!!

I am so glad you are getting into your own place. Sushi...I am already checking out airfare. Wouldn't it be a blast if MA and I came to visit. HMMM...I will have to chat with her about that! I needed a buddy to drink with the other day and almost called her..she wouldn't have even felt that back pain! Rob
