Here it is, folks: a real, live blog post. Something I've been trying to do for nearly two weeks, but life keeps getting in the way.
A lot has happened in the last couple of weeks. First, I left my job. My last day was on Tuesday, October 5. I took off Wednesday through Friday of that week. Luckily, Joey had off that Wednesday and had a doctor's appointment on Friday - we were able to spend two fun days together, aside from the weekend. I caught up on schoolwork, shopped for new work clothes, spent time with friends, and shared quality time with Danica.
I started my new job on Monday, October 11. So far, I like it a lot. I enjoy going to work, and the people I work with are wonderful. Everyone is so nice and helpful. I'll be busy for a while - a lot of what's on my plate is clean-up duty. This position hasn't been filled in quite some time, and there is catching up to do. It's good, though. The work isn't stressful, I love learning new things, and it makes the days go by fast.
Outside of work? Well, that's a different story. It's not only fast, but it's also incredibly stressful. I had my big midterm due yesterday, and next week I have three more papers due: one on Sunday, one on Monday, and one on Wednesday. This weekend didn't help me catch up, either. We had a trip planned to Atlanta to see my brother. Despite all of the schoolwork on my plate, we had a great time. We watched Georgia Tech beat Middle Tennessee State, and my brother gave us a tour of the campus. Joey and my mom had been there before, but this was my first time. It's crazy to me that a school can exist in the middle of a major city the way GT does.
Everything else is on the back burner. It's not just blogging. My DVR list is filling quickly, and my floors are collecting dust. I think things should be better after this weekend. Does anyone have a few extra non-working hours in the day to spare? I could certainly use them. I'm a busy bee.
