i miss you

I’m sorry. I’ve been a bad blogger this past month or so.

First, I decided to take a step back and see what life would be like not totally immersed in my issues. I found this experience good at first, but I missed all of you–all the blogs I used to frequent, all the people who have commented.

Second, I started my internship–at an academic library–on Monday, and I got a full-time job last Saturday at an accounting firm, which I started on Tuesday. I’m at the library for eight hours and at my job for forty plus hours. I’m also taking a class, which I’m already behind on. It’s been busy. I went from having very little social interaction to having a lot–fast. Fortunately, both my job and internship have been going well.

The library director is easy to talk to, and I get a long with her well. She coddled me a bit, but that’s okay–it was my first day, after all. I worked at the reference desk and then on a few IT-related side projects.

I still don’t really know what I’m doing at my job. I guess I’m like an administrative assistant. I do odd-jobs. The office is a complete wreck. I spent half my time trying to understand the organization of all the files. My boss enjoys power and isn’t afraid to show it. He talks down to all his employees, sometimes even in front of them. He’s nice to me, though. But who knows what he’s saying behind my back. Today he told me that I’m absolutely pleasant to be around, which felt good.

Anyway, I got side-tracked. I originally just wanted to say that I miss all of you. I’m going to be really busy the next four months, but I will try to post every now and then. But please know this: each of you will be in my thoughts.

  3. I miss you too Mike and you are in my thoughts as well. I am glad to hear that you are super busy and got a job! YAY! I know that life right now doesn’t give you time to think or focus on your own needs much which can be both positive and negative! Be sure to make some time for you! Will ALWAYS be here…

  4. i DONT post on here much but I’m always happy to see in my email that you made a post. And this was an especially nice one. To see that people can make such big, positive changes makes me feel more optimistic… even if the deep changes we want take time and come gradually sometimes… there’s hope… that’s what I wanted to read today:)

  5. I miss you too! Congratulations on the two jobs – that is fantastic! You sound incredibly busy, and a class too. Yikes! Are you able to find time to run?

    I wonder what my life would be like if I wasn’t immersed in my issues too. I think I’m too addicted to my blog to give it up though.
