Contract Signed

This afternoon, I signed a one year contract for a new job. I can’t say much about it, other than it’s teaching. I’m hoping to use the money for Japanese lessons, which will hopefully help me pass some more tests, so I can get a really good job in the future. I can’t express, with […]

A Little Bit like Glitter

I’ve been working on an essay about myself, for a job application. It’s been slow going, but I’m trying to get it done as soon as I can. As I’ve said in my last post, it feels like my job status may be changing in the next few months, so I should probably work on […]

Lights on the Horizon

Today was a long day filled with complicated problem solving. For the life of everyone in my department, we couldn’t figure out why an important document refused to print correctly. We noticed that some of the numbers were displaying multiple times and some of the labels were nothing like what was being input, but we […]

Reflected on the Water

Had a great time with mom last weekend. Been busy as hell since then. Big project at work had me working lots of OT, but since I’m not supposed to go over 40hrs, it looks like I’m going home early today. It was crazy. Boss treated us to a nice lunch. Thanks boss!! Have a […]

A Bright New Start

I got a call from the company my brother works for yesterday. I was offered a job. The job¬†starts later today. The commute is a bit long, but the pay and hours are good, so I can’t mind too much.¬†Through it, I should be able to start paying down my loans. From what was said […]

Another Walk

Brother and I went walking again. This time it was a bit further along the Bronx River. This area was more akin to a small forest than the last spot and had a cool little walkway under one of the bridges. The walkway was flush level with the water and the space between it and […]

Troubled Waters

Wouldn’t it be so nice if we could let troubles and fears roll off our backs, like a duck does water? I’ve spent a good portion of my life playing servant to anxiety, and missed a lot of opportunities for happiness pass me by. I pretended to be someone else to make my family like […]

Reflecting on a Resolution

I’ve been thinking about what my 2015 resolution should be. For the past few years, it’s been “to become more adult like,” or “to be less judgmental.” For the latter half of last year, I tried to “complain less” and “be more greatful.”   I think this year, my resolution might be “save money towards […]

Reflections on the Water

I think I must have been a cat in my last life. I mean, I must have been; I love anything shiny or reflective. I also have to tendency to climb into strange places to investigate things I probably have little business investigating. Well, at least I didn’t fall into the river this time.
