Yes, soon, in just 2 more weeks, I will be "paroled" from my job, at least until September. I work in food service at a college campus and we close down for the summer so --YAY!-- a nice long vacation is coming!
Now while most people wouldn't be so happy to lose their jobs, I have to admit that's one of the main reasons I stay at mine. It doesn't pay much, its boring, and can be very frustrating at times, but at least I get a lot of time off.
OK, so there are a lot of cute boys to look at while I'm there, but most times I'm too busy to really appreciate the view. I've been there over 12 years now but I tend to stay put somewhere once I get there--I worked at a previous job for 15 years! Just not the adventurous type I guess or maybe I'm just not that ambitious--I'm not sure. Although I am not lazy, that's for sure, I don't even take lunch/coffee breaks that I'm entitled to at my job...I like to make certain that everything is done right and I guess I don't trust others to do do the same.
Well enough about my boring job...as to this summer, I have no real plans. I can't afford to travel anywhere so I'll be staying close to home, as is usual for me. I probably will be posting here quite a bit--I've become a tad addicted to my little blog--and I enjoy reading others' blogs as well. I feel I have opened myself up a little more than any other time in my life just by writing about some things here that I never would have had the guts to say out loud.
As I told about in a previous post, I was very lucky to have found a nice computer someone decided to throw away. I still can't believe anyone would just toss it out to be collected as trash! I guess they must not have known a lot about computers or maybe it just didn't run right for them or something. I will give the poor little orphaned computer a good home, though He seems quite happy here so far :) Later I plan to network my old computer up to him so he'll have a friend to play with. I also recently got a copy of Windows XP to install so he'll have a nice new operating system to replace his old Windows98.
Boy, guess I really need to get out more often--I'm starting to develop a crush on my computer! ;)
(Well, he is kinda cute...)
Perhaps this summer maybe I'll finally get up the courage to go somewhere to meet some actual people, who knows?
To my fellow bloggers: Thanks for sharing your lives (both the good and bad parts)--you've inspired me and given me hope that we ALL can improve our lives and take on new challenges in the future. I feel a connection to many of you...must be those Quantum Entanglements that link us together.
