Local on the 8's

It's OK. I'm fine. Please, stop calling the police. It is once again safe to take some time for yourself and stop worrying about little old me. Maybe you can even start showering again, who knows? Surprise! What I thought would be a nice relaxing summer term turned out to be a ball busting workload with little to more frequently NO free time, a 6:45 alarm with only one snooze allowed, sunburns, late nights at work, and sometimes spending 16 consecutive hours in the cold dark meat locker that is the Digital Lab.

But that was Summer I. Now, it is Summer II. I still have a pesky 8am class, but the difference is now I can go home at noon and STAY HOME! I'm taking Book Arts which isn't really my favorite area, but it seems to be an interesting enough class. After this, I only have three left in the fall before gradgeashun.

I started a very shallow search for jobs around the country and I gotta be honest here, the prospects are not so hot. I am confident that I can come up with some sort of job, so I know I won't be out on the street, but the careers that I would actually like to pursue out there are few and far between. Apple has a few jobs for recent grads, but they are all related to computer programming, C++ and all that jazz. Accounting and Marketing jobs abound. Creative design? Nuh uh. Printing solutions? Nope. Imaging specialist? Zilch. What to do?! Olan Mills.... here I come. I did see that there was a photo studio in the San Francisco Bay area that had some openings. I love everything about photography except actually tripping the shutter. It's just not my favorite thing to do. Working at a studio would be my last choice, unless the do in house printing, then I am all over it! Also, as many of you know... I don't like kids. Other people's kids I mean. I like my friends kids. I'd much rather work with animals than toddlers. That's a conundrum... Portrait photographer for kids... or poisonous snake handler?...

Alright, today my goal is to begin to build a resume, get a ton of work done on Rustin's website, do laundry, and pick up dry cleaning. I am telling you this because I think it is hysterical how much I plan to get done in a day and how much I usually end up doing. It happens everyday and everyday is the same. I find it pretty funny. It makes me chuckle. The environmental factors are good for a productive work day. I have a clean room, it's raining outside, and there is nothing good on TV. I forecast an 70% probability of getting things done. With a slight chance of isolated playstation showers throughout the afternoon and evening. Today's high is 76 and the low is... 76. I really should stop watching the weather channel.
