Just plain UNLUCKY!!!

Okay, I am back! Exhausted, but back!!!! And I'm back with some just bear with me for a few and I promise I will get to the good stuff!

My rantings: I am not exactly sure why some people are lucky and some aren't. I don't know if it's the "luck" we've made for ourselves or whatever...but lemme tellya....I AM THE MOST UN LUCKY PERSON in the world!!!

 I don't know why or even how. But it's true. Not only do I not have any so-called "luck" but if something bad can happen to something I'm doing, or trying to do, it usually will! (no I'm not talking about quilting or sewing in this ranting!) Let me give you an example...
I just became a nurse this year. I graduated (by the Grace of God) on Dec. 14 from my nursing program. And I was hearing how all these people from my class had taken their state boards and found out their results and  blah blah blah. Well, me, in the middle to end of January still hasn't even recieved my Authorization to Test!!!! WHAT?!?!? So, I'm calling the company that does our tests and they take my info and then I am informed that I'M NOT IN THE SYSTEM!!!!! "What? The check for test has cleared my account, so how am I not in the system if you have my money?" So, after like, I dunno, 2 weeks, I finally heard back (after the Director of Nursing from my program bugged them to death) and they had lost my application!!!!!!!

So, you see what I mean? Bad luck just seems to find me! I guess why I got on this ranting in the first place is all these giveaways I've been entering. I have NEVER and I do mean NEVER won anything in my whole life (except what I have to pay for myself like Ebay), except here recently. I won a gift card to Joanne's from the first blog hop I had ever even heard about. I entered probably 500 giveaways that week, and I won ONE! And I can't tell you how many more I have entered since then, (and multiple times on the same one on some) and NADA! ZIP! I don't know if there is anything I can do to change my luck, but if there don't I wish I could do it!!!

Are any of you just plain "unlucky"? If so, what's your take on it? Are any of you lucky??? If so, what's your take on it from the "good side"? Just wondering! I hope I didn't offend anyone, just wanted to rant and rave and jabber some!!!

I guess with all the people entering; we are very very lucky to win at all.

Oh Kelie: Your luck will find you soon. Yes I have been lucky in small ways, even my frieds think I am lucky, put if I could win the lottery, then I think I am really luckey, put I am trying to win a trip somewhere or a very expensive sewing machine, now that is were I am unlucky as hell. It just seems that Murphy's Law is following you, so just call on the good angel to rub you feet with good luck.

Hey I have a sort of giveaway on my blog going on right now (I dont think any one has entered yet as I do not have many followers). just be on of the first to enter and I will make you a little gift and mail it to you!

I used to have bad luck too, but it has gotten better. I've won a few blog contests now, and while I used to enter pretty much every one I came across, now I'm trying to be mindful of whether I -really- need/want what's being given away, and so there are some contests I don't enter. It's hard to pass up the allure of the chance to win free stuff, but I think it increases my contest karma when I only enter contests I really really want to win :) Hang in there, things will get better!

I, too am unlucky! I sometimes secretly hate my Honeyman because he is good at everything he does and is very lucky! God I hate that man (and love his with all my heart! LOL)
