It’s been a while but here I am.
I’m hoping to maybe start updating more often. I’ll never be as bad as I was in 2002-2003, but maybe once every week to two weeks would be better. I mean, I’ve got some many good things going on in my life now. A few more updates are probably in order.
So I’m at work right now (tho by the time this hits the web I’ll be at home). I’m actually on the phone warm transferring a customer to a billing agent... and she hung up. Skip ahead and I’m taking another call. But I digress. So what’s good in my life?
News Flash #1:
Christopher and I hit our first anniversary. July second. One year. We worked. We were broke. It was nothing special, except that I was with my baby. We spent some time together after getting out of work. That was the most special part.
News Flash #2:
I quit smoking! It’s been more than a month now. Technically the 21 day mark is the most important. The next milestone will be one year. Either way. It’s really exciting for me. Does this mean I’ll never smoke again? Probably not. Does it mean Christopher will never smoke again? Probably. He seems to have a harder time of it. For me, I’m just trying to put as much distance between myself and cigarettes as possible before I get into any casual smoking again. Going back to game will be the big test.
News Flash #3:
I’ve been with Comcast for 1 year! It’s had its ups and downs. I must admit the first six months, nay the first nine months were great... the problem has been in the last few months. I don’t want to get into details, but I hope that things getting better from a management perspective because bad business decisions have been effecting my job and the jobs of about 300 other people. Not to mention making quite a few Comcast customers miserable. Moving on... it’s been one year. I’m hanging in there. It can only get better!
News Flash #4:
I finished my first college course back at school! My next step is to take two of them back to back. On a similar note I’m actually in a place in my life with some savings in the bank that I can pay for my education out of pocket. I mean, loans will help in a pinch. If I need to, I can shell out the cash for my classes out of savings and then get tuition reimbursement from my employer for any classes I’ve passed at the end of the semester. Comcast has already approved my degree. Life is good. It makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside knowing this.
Those are the really big things in my life. There are other little things. I’m working on my business on the side. I’m going to save up a little money and get my business license and my name copyrighted. I’ve also got an idea about how to make startup capital. I need $500 to start. I can go from there. Then I need the time.
I still have my kittens. They’re sweeties. I’ve come to the realization that they’re probably both really old! At least 7 years on Saturn. Venus may be a year or two younger. Either way. My babies are still with me. I’ve thought long and hard about what’s going to happen after they die. What I’m going to do. I’ve decided I don’t want more. My kitties are like family. They came to me rather organically, I didn’t go looking for them so when they’re gone, I’m not going to just “replace them.” Chris and I will probably just wait till we get a house then go get a dog!
I just did a double header with Chris. We went and saw Hancock (which was okay) then Batman (which was fucking phenomenal). Now we’re going downstairs and will be watching Wanted in the living room. We were gifted with a damn good copy the other night. We’re watching it tonight in the event that we don’t get to it tomorrow. We still have to watch Hellboy II tomorrow. *sigh*
So I hope you all are doing well. I’m going to make more popcorn...
