The Wright Readings

The Wright Readings is my personal online New Age shop. I offer card readings (both Tarot and Oracle), rune readings, and astrological horoscopes (numerological horoscopes are coming soon!). I also have a line of seashell based-jewelry and other craft items for sale.

The shop is just beginning to be set up. I very much appreciate your business and support! Looking forward to working with you!

7/13/11: The basic Tarot Readings section is up and (hopefully) running! Please check it out!

Update

Welp, since my last post I've booked two more weddings, one on my birthday! I was supposed to have a third wedding, but after contacting me the bride has not answered my email, my text message, or any of my phone calls, so I suppose it's safe to say that she no longer requires my services. :\ Oh well. This wedding I just booked today is actually a double wedding! That'll be nifty :D

Oh, and I have a website now! Please look me up!

I've also gone through my section of the attic and reorganized my stuff from crappy cardboard boxes into far more reliable--and far fewer--plastic bins. I have 2 1/2 bins just filled with stuffed animals |D I've got my trousseau all packed up--my dishes and little knick-knacks for the home Mari and I will have one day, God willing--and a good bit of my toys and books. My goal is to pass my toys onto my children when Mari and I have them...and to not buy my kids new toys that often >.>

I am missing many of my toys though and that upsets me :\ They are either mixed into other people's things or packed up in the garage, so they should be a joy to locate |D

The Attic Adventure has also triggered me into finally completing my collection of Sailor Scout dolls. I dropped a lot of money on a Sailor Saturn doll |D But less money since then on a Sailor Mercury, Uranus, and Mars doll. I know where my Sailor Moon doll is, but my Jupiter, Neptune, and Pluto dolls are among my missing toys and this distresses me :\ Now to find them, and to get a Sailor Venus and Tuxedo Mask doll for a decent price. But no Chibi Moon. Because fuck Chibi Moon.

GUESS WHAT GUESS WHAT

I'M DOING MY FIRST WEDDING TWO WEEKS BEFORE MY BIRTHDAY.

I got referred to by my contact at Best Weddings NJ. I've spoken with the bride, who is a lovely woman, and I'm meeting her and her fiance this Wednesday at the wedding site :D

I'm so excited I can't take it. *flails* Event planning is my GAME, man. They're a Catholic/Presbyterian couple with various European heritages, so I've been researching wedding traditions from those backgrounds. And UGH I am so thrilled to actually be doing this. I was beginning to fear that I'd wasted two years and $5000 on Seminary, but nope! I have a couple, I have the resources, I have the know-how and I'M GONNA ROCK THIS SO HARD.

Ways to follow me

So I have spent the past couple days seriously trying to establish a presence for myself as a minister. I have wanted to have a wedding ministry since I was 15, and that's what I'm mainly shooting for, but the other aspects of ceremonial ministry--funerals/memorials, blessing ceremonies, healing ceremonies to some extent--are all also things I'd like to pursue. (Not to mention I'm getting signals that maybe I should pursue chaplaincy, but that's a whole lot more schooling than I can afford atm.)

I've been in touch with the ladies at bestweddingnj.com, and they've been a really great help. While I'm working things out with them w/r/t joining their network, in the meantime I'd like to give my LJ followers (all four of you, natch) ways to seek me out:

https://facebook.com/ReverendCaitlynWright - My primary page that I want to use the most frequently

http://wrightrevcait.tumblr.com and http://wrightreverend.livejournal.com - For collecting various ceremonial resources such as prayers, readings, and rituals

http://twitter.com/WrightRevCait - Mainly there to reflect my Facebook updates

So please like, follow, and add me! I know you guys are pretty far-flung, but I'm sure at least one of you do/will know someone in the NY/NJ area that will need a minister for a wedding or a funeral or even just a chat.

God help us all.
I don't know if anyone on my flist follows my Yami no Matsuei fanfiction anymore, but I have finally updated the fic formerly known as R!C, Those Who Live in Darkness.

I haven't updated my fanfiction in, well, at least a year and half at the earliest. Going back to it--writing and reading--has made me realize how much I miss the person I was when I was at OCC. Isn't it awful that I'm already feeling nostalgic for "my youth" at 23? I led such a more interesting life back then, I think. Certainly it was more eventful and fun than my current routine, which is "Get up, sit on the computer hoping that Mari will get online, go to work, come home and get online, go to bed."

Well, at least I have some other activities to keep my interest. Tonight and this weekend I will be involved in the Tri-State Theatre Festival! TSTF is a collection of 10-minute plays written, directed, and performed by local thespians. I am directing a sketch called "Cataracts", which is about how the racism of the older generation still pervades the race relations of the younger generation. I get to play the racist grandma tonight as I am understudying for my sick regular. XD

*hugs*

*hugs to all*

I AM ON THE YOUTUBE



I HAVE NOT WASTED MY LIFE.

My friend Heather's birthday was a few days ago, so I spent Sunday and Monday with her and her boyfriend, Neil. Among the many things we did was shoot this video. :3 I also finally got to have vegan softserve at the Tutti Fruti in the Bergen County Mall, which I thought didn't exist, and picked up some vegan anti-dandruff shampoo at Lush, which is like a vegetarian/no-animal-testing Bath&Body Works.

We also started watching The Lizzie Bennett Diaries; if you're familiar with Pride&Prejudice these are absolutely worth checking out on youtube. I didn't like P&P overmuch (mainly Austen's writing style bores me), but TLBD is strangely addicting.

"The Real Heather Lynn" is my friend's youtube and Tumblr account. Please check her out!

OMG spoilers for a 28-year-old musical

So, I saw Les Mis twice. And here is my point-by-point review of the movie:

Christmas! And the days leading up to it

First: I'm sorry I didn't get around to sending out Christmas cards. I will be sending them belatedly for New Year's, though. Christmas, after all, does last until January 6th.

Celebrating the whole 12 Days is something that I want to do when I'm a grown-up and have kids. This should work out with their school schedule because they're being home-schooled and I decide what their curriculum and schedule is. On that note: Happy St. Stephen's Day!

I was able to sneak in one last visit with Mari on the 21st; she came to my house and helped me wrap presents :3 This I was especially thankful for because I had some sort of stomach virus the day before and threw up four times. That was delightful. But anyway, yay happy fun visitteims with my babygirl! :3 She is in Arizona with family right now and I miss her like crazy :'(

I worked essentially two 13-hr shifts on the 22nd and 23rd, and a regular 8-hr on the 24th, though I got to leave early to go to church :3 I brought wassail and pfefferneuse to work and both of them were hits; my coworker Lesley asked for my wassail recipe, which made me feel awesome :)

Church was lovely. Well, our regular choir is cringe-worthy (God bless them all; they have nice voices but no choral technique, so instead of making a joyful nose unto the Lord it feels more like "make a dying cat noise unto the Lord"), but our bell choir is phenomenal. Steph says that I have to promise her that when I have my own church, I will have a bell choir. At the end of the service, the bells fan out around the church to ring the bells while the congregation sings "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing", which just creates this wonderful, wonderful feeling in the church. Though the best part is when we dim the lights, hold candles, and sing "Silent Night" together. It's beautiful. My church is beautiful. Though not exactly lively :\ Mainly elderly people and Christmas-and-Easter Christians. White People Church, basically, though we do have a growing Asian demographic, I noticed.

Christmas Day itself was nice, low-key but fun :3 Laura and Bel brought the kids over in the morning to open gifts and eat breakfast. I got to take Kayleigh out on my shoulders for a walk around the block. "Wreck-It" Reilly is turning out to be fussy and a tantrum-thrower :\ which is very different from when he was a littler baby. He still giggles when I lift him up in the air, though, so it's nice to see that hasn't changed :3 Mom/Dad/Steph/me packed it down to my Uncle John's house for Christmas dinner and to open more gifts. I napped through a good bit of it XD After getting sick, working over 30 hrs, wrapping gifts, and baking like crazy over the past five days, I was exhausted.

Zumba this morning, dinner with Steph and Joey later.

Oh, and the Christmas haul, so far:

From Mom and Dad: a Celtic Woman album "Songs from the Heart"; a purse, "Vegan Cooking for Carnivores", a latchhook set that I have been coveting from like two or three years, and "Creating a Healthier Church: Family Systems Theory, Leadership, and Congregational Life"

From Aunt Joannie and Uncle Doug: a pajama set

From Uncle John & family: $25 Amazon gift car

From Mari: a webcam and a marimo that I named Yoshi ^^

Now to re-organize my Christmas music.
