- Two weeks ago I saw The Bravery at Projekt Revolution and fell in love. Their album The sun and the moon is perfect for doing all my data entry catch up at work today.
- My event planning distance learning class starts this week. Fingers crossed this leads me to actually pick a career. Oh ho growing up instead of just growing old.
- Yesterday marked my 1 year of being back in the states. Weirdness.
- Going to San Antonio in October. So so so (so) excited! Watch out Mel and JP!
- I would be more into the Olympics if everytime I turned on the tv it wasn't only sychronized diving and beach volleyball.
- Current favorite lyric from "Call it off" by Tegan and Sara
Maybe I would have been
Something you'd be good at
Maybe you would have been
Something I'd be good at
We'll never know
I won't be sad
I broke up with AB today. I can't seem to make him a priority and it's not fair to him. He was confused because I was confusing. I couldn't tell him the real reasons without hurting his feelings, so I gave the "no time" speech and wrapped it up with the "It's not you, it's me" spiel. The fact I would cancel on AB if Unrequited Crush called is bad. Very bad. Better if I just try to make more time for myself and other friends.
Otherwise it was a nice Memorial Day weekend. I had a great time helping at Fanime (thanks Keys!). I didn't get to go back to the con for more than a few hours during the weekend. I wore a blond wig and lolita on Saturday. As I was leaving the convention center I ran into one of my co-workers. He was wearing jeans and a t-shirt. I can explain the lolita, but the blond wig..."See you at work" indeed ^^;
Ending on a random note, things I've been told I look like recently: Hispanic (although I get this a lot), Russian (a new one!), a prairie dog, a white rhino, and a hippo (a cute hippo apparently).
Workload has doubled. I have a 2nd date on Thursday with Apple boy. Laser tag this weekend. Unrequited crush getting worse. Politics driving me crazy. Japanese classes starting this week.
Here's the quandary, I want to talk about all the great and not so great things going on, but then I feel narcissistic. Although it is never narcissistic when I read my friend's journals cause I love to hear about your lives.
Instead I will say that I highly recommend the google tarot horoscopes. For your daily dose of future forecasting I find those the most vague, yet enlightening.
This is my 4th week in a row of 4 day workweeks. Lucky except today I'm sick. The house warming party I went to on Saturday turned out to be a small suprise birthday party for me. I'm always shocked when people do something so nice for me. I know good people, the best, but still I'm surprised. Last weekend was a wonderful trip to Seattle. So much good stuff there. December. I decided to not go to Australia in order to save up more money for my eventual move back to Seattle.
Work was a roller coaster of yuck last week. Japanese companies are a fucking boys club. You could say that about a lot of different jobs, but trust me this is very specific to traditional Japanese companies.
Futurama and then back to bed! Dreams of bacon!
This a quick sanity work break. I've been taking more and more of these lately, but the gchat ones are starting to distract me too much. Urge to gchat...STRONG...must resist... I've taken on a bunch of new duties at work and the rhythm does not yet exist. Stress, stressity, stressosity. I'll survive. It's not like it's hard work, it's just an increase in volume. Like the volume of my butt increases while I sit here staring at excel spreadsheets.
Strange names I have heard from friends and the radio the last few days: Female (pronounce Fei-ma-lei), Korvette (daddy loves Corvette cars), Orangejelo and Lemonjelo (twins from Berkeley), and Narnia (a friend of a friend's kids, his other daughter is named Arwen).
