I will try to work on doing a “Weekly Roundup” on my status with things.
Work: Having a good time taking on tasks. Eager to seek out new challenges. I’ve become more accustomed to the environment. It’s not as difficult as it was before and now I have set myself a goal: Try something new on a daily basis. This will keep me keen when and stable when trying things I am unfamiliar with. I almost want to pick up the book titled, “The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People.” You don’t become successful from reading a book or emulating one’s success. You become successful from innovation, creativity, and initiative. I might skim over it next time I am in Borders, but I am becoming successful at what I do because I am doing the best I can, and doing it by those principles. Overall, things are going smoothly while my colleagues are remote from the office. 🙂
Friends/Family: My sister had attempted to have a simple but clear conference call with my mother and I. It’s objective was to close the loop on my own current events. What it became was the validation that my mom couldn’t handle the situation involving my car being burgled (I still doubt thats a word BTW) and habitually seems to contest my independence. Anyhow, things are fine now with that.
Since my car’s burglary occurred, I unintentionally dropped an additional $500 on fixing the door lock. That $500 screwed me up with everything since I owed that to my former roommate (and friend) Chris. Now that money is between us, it seemed to have caused irreparable damage to our friendship. I know I will get him the money, and I know the hardships he is dealing with too.
Along with that, Sarah got her job at the Disney store and I’m happy she works there. However for that good fortune, there is a price. The price of losing values and freedom of expression. What I mean exactly, is dress code policy and overall the general appearance of folks in Virginia. A strong majority of people around here are “white collar,” driving their Audi’s and BMW’s everywhere with suits and ties collared around their necks. Not one bit of individuality is expressed. It’s almost sickening from a perspective of a native Tucsonan. I hope professional employers would attempt to embrace differences and individuality rather than pass judgment and cast negative overtones when one has a piercing or a tattoo. At my work, it’s atleast flexible and none of that personal dynamics is played out – so there is hope!
Anyhow I plan on working on things (financially) so they will change soon! 🙂
