Work, work, work…

March 30, 2007

Work = boring. I wish I had a job that I actually had any interest whatsoever in getting it done. But I’m at such a point in this big bureaucratic nightmare that I could sit here and not work for weeks and it really wouldn’t make any difference whatsoever. Kinda makes it hard to buckle down and do anything much at all. But on the bright side it gives me a lot of time to work on Generation Q things.

I have to take my laptop in to get sent into the repair shop today. =( My baby is damaged! One of the internal processor fans decided to spontaneously combust during the week so it makes this horrendous noise and gets really hot. But on the bright side I can see if they’ll repair some of the other little things on it at the same time. Gotta get it in before the warranty is up!

It’s Mel’s birthday today and we’re going to hang out at some point. She’s going up the hill to her parent’s house for dinner and whenever she gets back down here we’re gonna do something. Neither of us know what yet though.

Well I should get back to mindlessly entering data into forms. Wish me luck. I may die of boredom.

Wonderful

I don’t especially have a whole lot to say tonight, but I wouldn’t be shocked if it ends up being rather long.

I just have to say, my boyfriend is amazing. This last weekend he took me on a picnic to Folsom Lake out of the blue, which in itself was perfect. On top of that, he surprised me by giving me a bottle of mint body wash (the kind we used on our Hawaii trip) and the new “Sunset Heat” cologne by Escada that I told him a while ago that I wanted. Just sitting with him at the lake on a blanket was the best thing we could have done.

Today we had a mini fight, which in the end made me feel really bad about how I reacted and made me appreciate him even more. It wasn’t anything big, as we don’t really fight because we communicate really well, but even so it was enough to frustrate us both a lot. But after all was said and done, all I wanted to do was go to his house and give him a big hug and tell him I was sorry.

I tend to wax philosophic on the subject of Charlie, but oh well. I’m sleepy and if I keep typing I’ll probably cease making sense. I just uploaded the 11th episode of my podcast, so click the Blonde On The Inside link to the right and check it out!

I’m off to figure out how to import my LJ to WordPress effectively. Wish me luck!

One More Thing…

March 27, 2007

I updated my Wish List today, took off a few things and added my desire for a paper shredder. I’m addicted to shredding.

I REALLY need to devote myself to posting more often. I’ve been thinking about how little I actually post in my personal blog a lot lately, and I realized one reason I haven’t. When I first came over to WordPress, I’ve always wanted to import my old LJ journal (a good year and a half’s worth of my life that I’d like to keep around) but when I tried it was WAY too hard. But maybe I’ll make that my next project. I’m working on getting a copy of a blog-publishing client like MarsEdit or Ecto to make it easier for me to update too, so my laziness is less of an issue =P

Ok, so my life is hectic now. I was recently promoted to the Regional Producer for the US (basically leading the entire US team) over at Generation Q Media, which is a big deal for me. It’s not a paid position, but it’s a position with a lot of decision power and responsibility. I’ve been wondering if this whole journalism thing might be what I want to do eventually, but I think the part I’m most excited about is really the management position, which fits into my plan to major in Business. So oh well. But Generation Q has been taking up a lot of my thought lately and I have some work to do with getting the members of the US team back together into a more cohesive group. And on top of everything our Content Management System (what we use to post articles) went down last night and all our articles since February have been deleted, which means a LOT of catch-up for us. But like I said, it’s a challenge I’m excited for. So you’ll be hearing more about that soon, I’m sure.

My music column over at Gay Socialites is doing pretty well too, but finding the time between homework, social obligations, and my work at Generation Q is a challenge. But I really enjoy reviewing new music each week so it’s worth it. I’m attempting to pin down a constant day that I can write, but with my crazy schedule that can be a challenge.

As for this blog, I’m really going to make it something I use more often. I know basically NO ONE reads it, but having somewhere to gather my thoughts and just post stuff so if anyone is actually interested they can read it is important to me. I’m going to start posting the weird ass dreams I always have too so that mysubconcious may entertain you all.

Blonde on the Inside (my podcast) is doing really well too. I’m excited to record our 11th episode ASAP because I’m rediculously prepared for it. You should all go check it out! It’s quite fun.

Well, I’m currently at work so I should get back to hum-drum data entry. If anyone out there actually reads this, you should let me know! Leave a comment and make me feel validated =P
