year of the paperwork
For everyone else in the world this is going to be the year of the Dragon for me? The year of paperwork… When you start telling people you’re going to do a non-profit and they tell you it is a lot of work warning! They do not just mean “work” they mean paper work, lots and lots of paper work.
=:p ah well that’s life isn’t it?
Ok thank you to all those that joined us at the Miccosukee Indian Arts Festival first. It was great seeing those of you from Tampa and my locals 🙂 For those of you that had a bit of a hard time identifying us I am getting to work on the organization shirts. I have the logo, Juan is going to do the final touch-ups ASAP and a-printing we shall go!
Otherwise keep an eye out for a red book-bag with HPV Awakening Inc. on it. I’ll post a picture of it to further help with the visual, or cars with our website on the trunk.
Now the reason for this being the year of the paperwork is simple. The permits involved in getting the bike run going equals paperwork.
501 form equals paperwork
Grant writing equals paperwork
And of course my idea of down time being reading and journaling equals paperwork -_- I think I need new hobbies :p
Joking aside, things are moving and that is key =^_^= Things with the lawyer are well underway thanks to our case “helper(s)”. I am learning my way around the internet for things other than checking my email which, I have finally gotten into the habit of doing regular bases. I have decided to also start video blogging but can’t figure out how to get this thing to record sound 0_o But I have managed to kill the “h” key for the most part on my keyboard, and my cellphone is holding onto dear life out of pure masochism which means it’s still alive and kicking! Oh and I realized I can post these blogs on facebook as notes not just on the blog sites I am registered on.
The Morikami Japanese Museum is having its New Year Festival this Sunday sadly I am not sure if I will be able to attend for I have my bill paying job to go to but other HPV Awakening Inc. Supporters will be there if any of you would like to attend! I’ll post the event up tomorrow with all the usual info. I am having a bit of a hard time setting up the support group because I do not get my work schedule till Sunday and it starts the following Monday. Next week when it comes out I will just post a support group meeting at a local starbucks in North Miami Beach and see how that goes. I am sorry if it will be super last minuet but I have little control over my hours as I am new to this job.
Also I go into the school system Friday the 13 for material approval! Wish me luck this means once approved we as an organization can start addressing local middle and high schools. I will be releasing the dates I will be speaking at Barry, Miami Dade College, FIU, UM, NOVA, and so on as they come in.
I will keep you all updated with how things are going as they come to me. In February don’t forget we have another yard sale fundraiser that Tate’s comics is helping out with, so is Asbestos Accessories, and J2 Creations. Not sure on the location is will either be at the Hollywood fresh market or he Swap Shop. But I’ll get back to you on that.
Oh and special thanks to our first cash donation not sure if you want to be named abaut I will at least thank you! 🙂
