Hello my loves
I thought I should update you all on the situation in my life. I got an amazing offer from my brother in California that I could come and stay at his house until I find a job, if I choose to move. He would also fly my 21 year old nephew out here to drive my car out there, and help with gas, etc. INSANE.
Just with Tony's school and stuff, it would have to be in a month.
I have been making no money here, and its insane.............and I'm sure I could find even a BS job out there to get by......

Things here have been good. I've been neglecting LJ, and posting mainly to my myspace page, even though I check my LJ friends page non stop, haha go figure.
Anywho....I was wondering if anyone had Illustrator CS 2 with the live trace??? I need a copy really bad for work, and do not want to spend $900....I have a paypal account and could EASILY send over some shipping money, plus whatever else. or if any of you would like to all go in together on a copy, I dont know what to do! Thanks!

|This is random
So I didnt renew my web hosting account through meccahosting.com for my illustration site....so www.christinahaberkern.com is no longer up at the moment
but when testing something out for the store, and did a google search, this came up for my name:http://phoenix.meccahosting.com/~a000276d/index.html
so my site is fully up and running there?!?!? I do not get it

Hey guys!!! It's been a bit so I thought I'd update
Yes, its Saturday night and I'm a big loser. The past week I've been pretty flu-ish, and have been hanging out. I'm giving it one more day to go away, haha.....I really didn't mean for that to rhyme!
I've been quite busy with my little business venture. I worked on a new website layout, and I like it so much better! Frames are so much easier to update, nik! Thank you for all that help! I still can't get it to not say "Untitled Document" at the top for some reason....but other than that I like it!http://www.christinasrack.com/
But business is good, sales are good. I had a nice first month. Posting was slacking due to sickness, so eek!
I also have been working on a package design for my brothers company, and god....i hate it, ha! I am so not a graphic designer, and it totally has me stumped!
Well other than that, all is well! I miss you all, and hope to see you at the senior show! (dear god a year already!)

Hey guys! Well the business is going and I'm totally busy! Official start date is March 1st, so I'm nuts right now
In the mean time, in search of good inverntory, I attend my first real live auction today. AMAZING. This woman was one of the first Rockettes, and had the best taste. I picked up so much shit from to 30s, 40s, and 50s. Great stuff. The find of the day: A vintage sequin bathing suit! So cute!!!
Apparently when researching it, there is alot of drama and history behind it. So I'm very excited to get it up and running to see how much this thing is worth!!!!

Well I was working with this woman doing a vintage clothing store...and let's just say it didn't work out well.
I felt like I was doing all the work, and only getting a small portion. So right now, I am in the works for opening up my own online store and eBay store for vintage clothing and t-shirts. I learned a lot at that job, and I now know how easy it really could be to do it all myself, and I know how much money there is to be made. I have a good amount of inventory, have more coming in from wholesalers next week...and am working on making my own t-shirt to produce and sell also. Also going to auctions and bidding on items to resell on ebay too. Not to mention, company paid shopping trips, whoo hoo!!!! VERY ILLUSTRATION RELATED, haha!
I need you girls help though! I can't decide on a name, and for a while, me and my sis were just calling it "Christina's Rack", just thought it was a little funny double entendre....but I am getting a lot of bad feedback on it. Just thought it could be cute bc I could have pin up girls and make it all retro, then have slogans like "Thanks for checking out the merchandise." Haha...I really don't know what to call the damn thing! It can't just be like "Something Vintage" because we'll be selling newer stuff too. I don't know!!!! AHH! I thought if I could use the word ReHab in the title, that could be cool because of my last name. Too much presure!
Hope all is well....I miss you all!

Ok. So this warehouse part time gig I have is AWESOME. Basically I go to this huge warehouse and look through boxes of purses belts etc and pull stuff I want to sell on eBay, then I keep 50% of what it sells for. So I'm looking through this bag, and check out this fucking PURSE:
Check out some of this other stuff, kinda great and funny:http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQfgtpZ1QQfrppZ25QQsassZchristinasvintage

Hey guys! Long time, no update =)
Christmas and my bday was great.....got lots of goodies. I got Satelite Radio, which is awesome. I'm pissed though bc my radio as of today is fucked up and has to be exchanged, so I'll have to live like two days without it! As long as its up and running for Stern!!!
As for work, I have an interview on Jan 4th for an IRS job, whoopie. And I've been selling stuff on eBay for myself, which surprisingly, has made me a lot of money recently. I'm basically wasting time until my parents get moved and settled in, so I can move. Not much I can do but wait..........
Also, since Blingo has been so kick ass (Thanks Nik, I use it all the time!).....I wanted to recommend this site:
I started using it alot, and its not like you'll make hundreds of dollars, but I am up to like $75 now....so its legit.....check it out, it really only takes like 5 minutes.
Hope all is well! <3 you!

Well it's been a long time.
Things here have been boring, but hectic still.
My parents are selling the house that I grew up in. And its been crazy kinda clearing stuff out and getting it ready for open houses and such. They found the house they're moving into, and its amazing....huge backyard, oversized garage for my dad and his car......they're very excited. My mom called it her 'dream house', and its awesome.
Me on the other hand. I suck. I haven't done a single thing Illustration wise. Which is why I haven't updated. I'm ashamed and didn't want to update unless I had some sort of good news...but there is none. I just don't feel like I can have a good job here.....and I know I would suck freelancing. I don't know what to do.
I totally miss you guys BIG TIME. I still kinda feel like its summer vacation and I'm coming back and get to hang out all together and goof off and bitch about Sage, Brandy, etc.......lol
<3 you big time.

In case anyone was wondering....The previous journal entry was taken from an old Religion copybook from my Catholic Grade School days.......
I find it hilarious that even at my young age, I saw Philly as a scary place. After all, Jesus lived in a time with crucifixtion....but the streets of philly would be too rough for him in my mind. lol.
|Friday, October 7th, 2005|
If Jesus was living now he would be angry with all the vilonce going on. He would live in Philadelphia. His life would be very different because it would be far more dangerous than it used to be. He would have to teach at church because he couldn't go out on the street. He would die if he went out on the street to preach.

Well since I've been sending out resumes to no avail...I had to get a job somewhere to make some money. SO now I'm working here: www.giftbasketsplus.com
It sucks. I feel like my soul is dying anytime I'm near that place. I might have an interview coming up at this DVD design place....so Im keeping my fingers crossed!

The last 20 minutes of the finale of "Six Feet Under" was maybe one of the most emotional, and cinematically beautiful and overwhelming thing I have ever seen. That's all I wanted to say.

|How weird is my life???
So my sister's friend Ojani she's been dating for a while called me up because he wants help posting something on eBay. Weird thing is: he's Jennifer Lopez's ex-husband and he wants to sell his suit from their wedding out of spite because JLo sold her wedding ring on eBay and got $50,000 for it. I'm going to get a cut of what it sells for too. This probably will get on those Insider and Access Hollywood shows, so keep an eye out. lol
As for a real job, I haven't had any luck. Sent out resumes, no interviews. I've just been doing odd jobs, like murals and face painting. I did stuff for this design company out of LA for a tv show on FX called "Always sunny in Philadelphia", if you happen to see any promos for it...I took the photos of the city and of shoes on wires and shit. Actually paid pretty well. I've been using my friends to send my resume and website around for me. I've been told that the design company loves me, so maybe something will come of that place. Other than that, I'm totally broke and bored.

Yeah my last night in LA again. had a personal invite to the Impov tonight from this guy DeRay whose a regular actor on Entourage...yeah totally hung out with Jessica Alba tonight. Philly what??? lol

Hey guys! I haven['t updated in a crazy long time, so I thought I'd say hey!
So I have no job and no prospects. To be quite honest, I haven't even tried yet. Haha...o well...
Right now I'm in LA, sitting in my sister's apt., waiting for her to get up so we can go get some breakfast! I've been here since Tuesday, and damn is it hot. We've been having fun. We're all going out tonight for Kristy's (andrea's roomie) birthday....which is going to be a fun fun crazy time. I haven't really done much except shop and go to the dog beach so far. But I love it!
I hope all you guys are well. I miss my Moore girlies!
