Finally Friday

It's been a tough week. Lots of stress. Plenty of drama. But I'm not going to go into it here. I did get some good news a couple days ago, though. We got our mid-term grades back and I am quite happy. I got the highest grade in the class on one exam, and did better than I expected in the other two. Definite room for improvement, but I passed with plenty of breathing room. So quite happy on that front. Now I just have to avoid getting cocky, since the finals will be tougher.

Had a very long day yesterday. My employer sent me to a training class in San Fran. This required a 2+ hour drive up, 6 hour training, then a 3 hour drive back down (traffic sucks). And then it was off to school for another couple hours. But I got some really good information, and probably learned more about the concepts of my new assignment in that 6 hours than I did in the week long "training" I had on the job. Not too terribly surprising, that.

Hurray for a three day weekend.

La Novella

Sometimes I feel like I'm living in a soap opera. While I can not go into details here, suffice to say I am terribly disappointed in a decision that a friend has made. It has severely hurt another friend; created problems, confusion, and hurt for a few others; created tension at work; and will, from my perspective, end up only resulting in hurting herself. What she has done, imo, is wrong. Not "wrong" as in "incorrect". "Wrong" as in "not right". And while I recognize that it is her choice, I am sorely disappointed and it undoubtedly has placed a strain on our friendship as well.

I do not pray often. Don't really have the stomach for it. But right now . . . Lord, I beg and plead that I am wrong about how this will end--there has been enough hurt caused already. And if I'm right, I humbly ask that you grant me the strength to not say "I told you so."

Mmmm K

I noticed something a tad bit interesting the other day. Well, interesting to me, at least. A few weeks ago a friend of mine asked what type of girl I generally like. I said I really didn't have a set "type" but that I usually am attracted to the cute, quiet ones. But that's not the interesting part. In thinking about the girls I've been attracted to (not just "find pretty", but genuinely attracted to) over the past 10 years or so I noticed a different pattern. I seem to be drawn, for some inexplicable reason, to girls who's name starts with a "hard C" or "K" sound. Not exclusively, mind you. But a significant number . . . Christine (twice), Christina (twice), Khalisa, Ki'ni, Kelly, Kristin, Carmen, Karla, Kristal, Claire, Kalyn. So 13 ladies with "K" sound names. By contrast, in that same time frame, there have been only 4-5 non-"K" girls. Does anyone else find that a little odd?

Hi there!

Yeah, so much for updating more during the semester break, right. Haven't really had much to blog about. Same old crap & frustrations at work and same old depression over my (non-existent) love life. I've been dwelling a lot on the past. Well, a certain someone from my past, to be specific. And it's really not good. I know it does nothing but cause me pain, but can't seem to snap out of it. But I really don't want to gripe about that here . . . no sense in depressing y'all as well. However, last night I stumbled across a quote that actually did start my mind on a better path. "You can't go through life trying to avoid getting a broken heart. If you do, it'll break from loneliness anyway." Who would have thought that Star Trek: DS9 would help set me straight?

Anyway, school starts next week. Which means I need to get started on my reading. Because yes, we already have homework even though it's break. Ain't life grand?

Since I likely won't be posting anything tomorrow, have a fabulously fun (and safe) New Year's.

You know it's time to insulate the house when you go to take a shower and discover your shampoo has frozen.
