Xanga, it has been a while.
Life moves on. I am now two months into the new job, which is about time I stop referring to it as ‘new’. It is just my job at this point. Overall, it is good and I am grateful to have it. I am enjoying a lot of the benefits: relaxed work atmosphere, hours of NPR a day, health and dental insurance, library privledges, the fact no one has cursed me out; compared to teaching, it is a breeze. However, these comparisons are not all as happy and I sometimes feel discontent – or at the very least unresolved – about the juxtaposition of these vocational experiences.
But in the meantime, I have taken up a host of hobbies: Covenant league softball, paper making, art projects, and, most recently, stamp collecting, in addition to the usual pastimes: biking, crosswords, and hot dogs. This summer was marked by five high points: namely seeing my mother for five consecutive weekends. What a streak! What a lady!
That might be all the excitement I have to report. As always, I hereby pledge to update more frequently.
