Some happenings in my life, some worries, some stuff.


I've seen all good people turn their heads each day so satisfied I'm on my way.
 
My wife is back to work after some minor surgery. Her job sucks and it’s affecting our happiness. Thusly, she is now looking for a new one. Still at the old one but: Happy > Money
 
I've seen all good people turn their heads each day so satisfied I'm on my way.
 
I’m likely to get a job offer this week. Scared, nervous. But it wouldn’t be any fun if I wasn’t.
 
Take a straight and stronger course to the corner of your life.
 
I’ve been in my current job for six years. I feel kind of bad, my boss whom I like is on vacation for a month and its likely I will be gone before he returns. But it isn’t going to stop me.
 
Make the white queen run so fast she hasn't got time to make you a wife.
 
We spend our youth trying to get older and then spend the rest of our lives trying to regain the slow pacing of youth.
 
'Cause it's time, it's time in time with your time and its news is captured
 
I feel the discomfort of change and the itch to accelerate it as well. All must change.
 
For the queen to use.
 
I think my wife feels it as well. We are both restless, irritable. Motion trapped in forced inactivity.
 
Move me on to any black square,
 
The interviews I have had with $newcorp have been some of the best I have ever had. I am actually looking forward to working there.
 
Use me any time you want,
 
They just have to get through the HR process and make me an offer. 
 
Just remember that the goal
 
Still, everything could yet fall apart. I try not to get too excited.
 
'Sfor us to capture all we want, anywhere,
 
I know the new job will be far from wine and song, but still.
 
Yea, yea, yea.
 
I think I am finally moving on to the point where my experience is well past my lack of a degree.
 
Don't surround yourself with yourself,
 
Yet I always have the fear that the next job will involve French fries. Stupid, I know.
 
Move on back two squares,
 
I indulge myself in some healthy self-doubt from time to time. Keeps me in perspective.
 
Send an Instant Karma to me,
 
I am confident that it is in the bag, since I have been told an offer is coming.
 
Initial it with loving care
 
There was a memorial with my Father’s side of the family for my Uncle this weekend. Awkward that side of the family is strange.
 
Don't surround yourself.
 
I miss my Uncle. I saw a car that looked like his old convertible Riviera the other day; it actually shook me quite a bit.
 
'Cause it's time, it's time in time with your time and its news is captured
 
It’s been more than a year, the emotion was unexpected. I think I had been repressing some of it.
 
For the queen to use.
 
My wife, bless her, understood why I was quiet for several minutes even though we were in the middle of a conversation.
 
Diddit diddit diddit diddit diddit diddit diddit didda.
 
I had a beer in his honor. It is sad, but it is better this way, he was very sick.
 
Diddit diddit diddit diddit diddit diddit diddit
 
His son and I are the only grandchildren. I wish we are closer, but my cousin holds that side of the family at arm’s length.
 
Didda.
 
Well, it’s his choice. At least he comes to these events and is cordial, if not particularly friendly.
 
Don't surround yourself with yourself,
 
In other news, I managed to injure myself while doing a bit of lumberjacking.
 
Move on back two squares,
 
I picked up a 60-80lbs log and heaved it into a pickup truck. Something in my arm popped when I did that.
 
Send an Instant Karma to me,
 
An x-ray and an MRI later, it turns out I have a torn tendon in my right forearm.
 
Initial it with loving care
 
I now have no real strength in the “curling” motion. And it still hurts like the day I did it.
 
Don't surround
 
I have an appointment with the ortho doctor in five days. I don’t know what you do to fix such a thing. Surgery? Rehab? Both?
 
Yourself with yourself.
 
I would have much rather injured a leg. I can work with a damaged leg. If I need surgery on my arm it will put me out of work.
 
Don't surround yourself.
 
I’m nervous about what they will do. I have been reassured by my wife that it can’t be that bad, but still.
 
Send an Instant Karma to me.
 
The injury makes all kinds of normal things hard to do. Plus, I am right-handed and I am constantly reaching with that arm only to have a jolt of pain remind me that I need to use my left arm.
 
Don't surround yourself.
 
I just hope it doesn’t mean I have to tell my new employer “Oh, BTW, I will be out for two weeks on medical leave.” Argh.
 
'Cause it's time, it's time in time with your time and its news is captured
 
No use worrying about it until the ortho appointment.
 
For the queen to use.
 
Well, that’s all I have for now. 
 
'Cause it's time, it's time in time with your time and its news is captured.
 
Take care, all.

From what the nurse says, its a partial tear. 

I like to think that one morning it will just be healed.  I'm thinking that's not gonna be the case.  :=)

Go slow and do what the rapist tells you to do.

Jobs by notafurry (4.00 / 1) #5 Wed Aug 04, 2010 at 02:52:25 PM EST
Congrats, first...

I've been past the point where experience outweighs education for some time; it's not even on my resume anymore. I understand the "fries" fear, though, and something odd has happened... I've been putting off so much stuff while I scrambled to get past that point, that now I seriously find myself considering the possibility of a "Fries" job. It'd make enough money to pay the current bills, there wouldn't be much of a commute, and I could actually leave work and stop thinking about it, which means I could get to all those other projects I've been putting off.

It's strangely tempting.

Oh, yes! by Gedvondur (2.00 / 0) #6 Wed Aug 04, 2010 at 03:33:38 PM EST
The temptation to have a job that you could actually leave work at work is huge.

Knowing that work lurks just in the other room on my desk is a huge amount of stress.  I probably have been past the experience over education phase for a while as well, but convincing myself of that is more difficult than I had thought.

I keep thinking that somehow opening a bookstore/coffee shop would be less work or less stress. I've been involved in small business before and it really is neither and is likely more of both for less pay.  Still, it's a golden dream.

Heh, the lesson learned is nobody knows what they want to be when they grow up.  Mostly, because nobody ever wants to admit they are grown up.

I just wish I was.

Good luck.
