When I was younger, my parents would listen tolerantly to my dream stories and shake their heads incredulously at the crazy tales I would tell.

When I got older, I had a conversation with my mom about how when I was a kid, my parents thought I simply had an overactive imagination and made up all of my "dreams." As I became an adult and still I would tell her stories of the unusual and vivid dreams I had, she realized that the stories I told as a child weren't made up.

Now, at nearly 30, I still have vivid dreams and remember a great number of them. Just last night, I had one of the weirdest dreams I've ever had. It had to have been multiple dreams that have run together in my memory, but I swear nearly every person I know was involved one way or another. Most of the time my dreams are benign. Bizarre, but benign. Sometimes they are disturbing. But I'd rather remember as many of my dreams as possible than think that the little sleep I get is boring!

This week has been a little crazy for me. I decided to join Mary Kay as a beauty consultant, launched my own website (don't worry, it's very simple-mostly for people to be able to follow my examiner writings, Mary Kay ordering, etc.).

I also posted my 3rd article for this week. It's about dealing with customer service reps, which is frustrating for almost everyone.

On the electronics front, I still haven't figured out what I did wrong with setting up my Wii, so it still doesn't register on my TV. Also, I did figure out how to tether my phone to my laptop to use it as a 3G modem. When I called T-Mobile to verify that my data plan was unlimited so I could use the internet on my computer, they told me that my phone wasn't able to be a modem. They were shocked to find out that I had already used it!

I've been in Washington 6 weeks now. I've taken 7 interviews, done some freelance work in writing, software voice over and started my Mary Kay business. I also got my bartending certification and license this week. Now I can look into getting work as a bartender to supplement my income as I launch the Mary Kay business.

Wish me luck! And check out my new website: http://maeganirwin/
