Mid-terms are next week. This week? Whatever the right phrase is. First one's tomorrow. I feel confident about one, so-so on another, and woefully unprepared for the third. We'll see. But in any case, I can't wait until they're over. ============================================================== I've been studying every night for a couple weeks now, and am getting a little burned out. So I took the weekend off. Part of the plan to relax was to see a movie, and I opted for the one that had the simplest, most non-existent plot of all choices . . . Punisher: War Zone. Since it's part of my required viewing anyway, it made sense to see it. The plot really was weak, which is saying a lot since it's a comic book flick. But the non-stop gun fights, frequent gratuitous violence, and general eye-candyness of Julie Benz as a brunette was pretty much just what I needed. ============================================================== After the movie, I had some shopping to do. One stop was the grocery store for some baking supplies in prep for Christmas. Rounding a corner I (almost literally) bumped into the ex. We chatted briefly. Slightly awkward, but not too bad. I figured it had to happen sooner or later, since we don't live that far apart and I know we shop at several of the same stores. She's cut her hair really short, and I couldn't help but notice how cute she looked. {Sigh} ============================================================== I saw a whole gaggle of wild turkeys today. No idea if that's the right term, but I think it's appropriate. Gaggle of gobblers just sounds right. There had to be at least 25 of them roaming around a school yard. Probably it was their after-Thanksgiving party. ============================================================== I keep thinking I'm just about done with my Christmas shopping, and then realize I left someone out. Last week, I had it down to 2 more gifts. Then it went up to 4. Got it back down to 1. Then today realized it's 3. Hopefully I'll get the right count down soon. ============================================================== They reassigned me at work effective this past week. A few people at work have commented that I seem much happier. What they don't realize is that I'm happier because I've come to the conclusion that I just plain don't give a shit. Honestly, if I did care, I'd probably be so frustrated I would have exploded by now. But I'm just going with the flow, smiling and nodding a lot, and not concerned about the consequences. I'm being thrown into a position where I'm supposed to lead a unit (6 people) in a job I've never done (so they know more about the work than I do) and take over a gigantic mess that involves specific timelines, precise process requirements, irate customers, and the potential to cost us hundreds of thousands of dollars if done incorrectly. All without any effective training. If I last long enough to actually learn the job, I'll probably enjoy it. But after mid-terms, I'll have a few weeks where I can really focus on the job hunt. Hopefully I'll find something. ============================================================== My birthday was last month. I was an absolute total asshole that day. Pretty sure it was the combo of a completely failed love life, job I hate, school stress, and getting older. Seriously, I'm actually a little surprised that certain people are even still talking to me. The one positive thing I have going in my life is good friends, and I'm seriously not afraid to admit here that I cried that night thinking about how shitty I was to some of them. ============================================================== I'm going to try to blog a little more during the break . . . been sorely lacking here primarily due to the lack of time. But if all I have to talk about is griping about work, I'll probably spare you the reading.
