Friday Fun! (Post Grad School)

March 4, 2011 2 comments

Hello my lovely readers!  I hope your weeks have been lovely with lots of time for reading crammed in.  My week has been decidedly uneventful, which I am totally ok with after the insane eventfulness of the last 6 months or so.  I’m settled into a post-grad school routine of work, friends, gym, cooking, professional job hunting, etc…  It’s great to actually have the time to see my friends more often now than when I was in school.  We’re managing to find fun ways to occupy our time in spite of the bitter cold, whether that’s Asian fusion food or hockey games.  (Go BC kick UNH’s ASS).  In fact, I’m so busy doing fun things that by the time I get home at night, I generally grab a quick snack or dinner then climb into bed to read and fall asleep doing so.  I woke up with my glasses still on this morning.  Luckily I was reading on my ipod so it turned itself off at some point in the night so no electricity was wasted.  This does mean that I’m watching far fewer movies, except for when I have friends over to get drunk and watch trashy old horror movies together.  😉  Of course there are the normal post-grad school money worries and the stress of trying to fit everything in to your work week, not to mention actually making the time to wash your laundry so you have clean clothes to wear, but overall, life is good.  *looks around*  *knocks on wood*

Oh!  I also got an xbox 360 and played a Kinect game for the first time and dudes.  It is so fucking cool.  The future of gaming if I do say so myself.  Playing a game with your body and no controls?  It’s like something out of a fucking scifi movie.  The only annoying part is having to move my furniture every time I play.

There’s really not too much else to say right now.  I’m striving for various goals, but I plan on only updating ya’ll on them once I’ve achieved them.  I prefer not to jinx myself.  😉  In the meantime, I hope to keep encouraging everyone’s love of reading and story-telling.  Happy weekends!

Friday Fun! (Long Weekend, Job Hunt)

Hello my lovely readers! As ya’ll know, last weekend was a 3 day weekend for moi.  I am pleased to report that I managed to hit up some Memorial Day weekend sales with my gal pals.  The rest of the weekend was mostly devoted to being lazy, as it should be.  I also had my first veggie burgers of the season.  I know you can eat them year-round, but for some reason I prefer them when it’s warm out.

Since I’m acquiring my MLIS in January 2011, at my yearly review a couple of weeks ago I talked to my boss about my position.  It was newly created when I was hired, so whether they wanted to keep it paraprofessional or make it professional was unclear.  Well folks, they want to keep it paraprofessional.  I’m welcome to stay, but also have their blessings to start looking for a professional position, which I’ve been doing.  So I’m looking for my first professional job.  You guys know how job hunting is; I don’t need to go into that.  It has, however, been taking up a bit of time.  If any of you guys happen to hear of anything or can put a good word in for me, I’d appreciate it. 🙂

This weekend I’m looking forward to trying out a longer bike ride again to see if I’m getting any better.  This undoubtedly will be combined with picnicking and reading.  Happy weekends!
