Hello there! I'm Cátia, feel free to add me. :)
The band and their music are huge inspirations to me. I've had the privilege of seeing and meeting them on three occasions: I got to be the LPU Roadie For The Day at Rock in Rio Lisboa 2012 (Thank you, Adam!), and I ended up seeing them again in 2014, at the same festival. Most recently, I traveled to Germany to see them in Bremen. Thanks for all the great memories, guys.

    Thank you! Yes, it's been very fun, plus it feels meaningful; like I'm actually helping others in a positive way, and that's rewarding. Being a pharmacy tech was rewarding too, but this feels like a good fit. Exactly, that's something else I love about it because everyday is different and I don't have to see the same scenery everyday or deal with the same situations. So the variety is very nice and refreshing. :)
    You're very welcome and I'm honored to be able to help! :) I can definitely relate to what you said about lacking the motivation, because I deal with that, too. :-/ And it's even more difficult when you're trying to find a job. But science, writing and animals are great fields! I love writing, science was my favorite subject in school and I love animals, so I can totally relate!
    Like you said, however, it's very difficult to find something when you don't have a degree. :-( But that doesn't mean it's impossible! Do you know anyone who works at a library? Maybe some networking could help? Or volunteering for a short time could open up a permanent job somewhere? The thing is just trying to find those, lol!
    Yeah, I'm not sure how writing for some websites would work, but maybe searching through some sites online to find something legit. I found that article about writing for sites on AOL earlier this week. I've also heard about it years ago and was thinking about looking into it myself, but it's definitely something to consider.
    But most importantly, it's finding something that will make you happy and that will also be flexible for you. :)

    You're welcome! And thanks, it really was the BEST time of my whole life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! =) I help people apply for insurance through what's called here the marketplace (it's insurance that was enforced by our President). And part of my job is working at local health centers that I'm assigned to and signing up the uninsured. Plus, I also travel to meet clients, to try to be a little more accessible, and also do events at libraries and such venues to encourage people to enroll in coverage.
    Then, I'll be helping small businesses get insurance coverage for their employees. It's really fun and I love it because it's very flexible and can make my own schedule. And right now, it's quite busy, which is good. Before I got this job I was a pharmacy technician at a retail pharmacy chain. Being a pharmacy tech is fun, but the retail setting was not for me, mainly because the schedule was so harsh.
    So I definitely wouldn't recommend a job in retail. I have other friends in retail and their schedules are hectic and you have to plan your life around work, which can be stressful. Nothing against retail jobs, but they can be hectic. :-/ I'm not too sure what the economy is like where you live, but I would maybe look for some type of job that's like behind-the-scenes kind of work maybe? I recently read yesterday about some websites that will pay you for writing posts for them on different topics. So that's a thought. But most importantly, what are your interests? Maybe write them down and list them, and maybe that could help put some things in perspective for looking for a job with the right fit.
    You're so right, because now is the time to live your life and enjoy it! And you want to be able to go to work and enjoy what you do, and that brings much satisfaction. :) Hope this has been of some help! Please let me know what you think, and hopefully we can toss some ideas around to help you find something! :) *hugs*

    You're welcome! Aww, thanks so much! Yes, I'm really enjoying my new job because I feel like I can actually get to live my life at the same time, lol. It's been a lot of fun so far. :) Thanks, and seeing LP was, omg I can't describe it! I thought that my 1st concert of theirs couldn't possibly be beaten, but this was far more incredible. <3
    Wow, that sounds like a spectacular experience! So happy you got to see LP and spend time with your friend! You deserved that experience, and I'm so thrilled for you!!! =) YAY!!!

    Thanks! Aww, I'm glad to hear that things are going better for you and I hope they get even better! :) Yes, lots of things! I got a new job last August, and in the same month I saw LP in concert for my 2nd time!!! <3 Besides that, I've been busy spending time with friends and into all sorts of stuff, lol. How about you? *hugs*

    This one has a few elements from "One liners" i pull when I get ideas from time to time. I have a whole bunch, when I get a topic I try to see if they fit it. But yeah pretty much the rest of the stuff was written in 1 day. Other stuff has taken me a couple of weeks, but I guess its starts coming more naturally the more you do it :)
