As you know, I now have a fancy diploma from a highly respected and grossly expensive university. Two of my very best friends in the whole world moved away. I went home for a while and saw my cousin get hitched and two others graduate from high school. I caught up with old friends that I haven't seen in ages. My computer broke. Again. I have the worst luck with these machines. Currently writing from Caitlin's MacBook. And, the latest - I got myself a job!
The job itself is just OK. I certainly didn't graduate with the degree and level of experience I have and think, "Man! I just wanna be a customer service rep!" But, I gotta tell you, I really love this company. The more I learn about it, how it started and where it's going, the more impressed I am with it. And, with a company like this, the potential to change and grow and move up is pretty much unlimited. Oh, and the people? So far they're pretty fucking awesome. Our company summer party was last night and I had a blast. No, I'm not making a ton of money. But it's more than what I was making before -- NOTHING! -- I've got health insurance (thanks Blue Cross!), and I'm having fun.
Other than that I'm just trying to enjoy my summer and suck in every last drop of golden sunshine that I can. I've had a couple great beach days and I plan on having a few more very soon. Some late nights that don't really cool off. The ones where the hair is kind of hazy, your skin is a little dewey and everyone just seems a little sexier than they were the night before. I plan on having some more of those too. Boat rides and roof nights and cold beers. Isn't summer great?
