take it outside

I'm thinking about changing this blog so it's useful.

I have moved all my stuff into the studio downtown and am looking forward to some poor weather. I can't force myself to stay inside ALL day so I'm slacking a bit on my office hours. Do people understand why I'm not there? I work in a beige cube all day! How can I be so cruel to myself; to remain inside, whether it's in the studio or not, after "regular work" when it's still 28 degrees out? I can justify it because most of the inspiration I find is found outside while playing. I'll post some pics of my wee studio here next week, it's so cute!

Lookee Lookee,

I've been doing fairly well at my new job; any operational gaffes I've experienced are balanced out by my success with the clients I have. The business of pension administration is not nearly as dry as you'd expect. I've learned a tonne of stuff about how big plans work, (I'm in Institutional Investors again,) and am fascinated by the decisions the money managers make. So that's good. I've begun to look seriously at tax planning as a way out of my own personal financial woes. I must be strong. I have to prove to myself that I'm as smart as I think I am, and produce some positive results. I'm investing like a madwoman; a madwoman who'd rather have food to eat when she's ninety, than now. Sounds dramatic, but it's not that bad, I've been in worse spots, time and time again.

The homefront is so-so, I'm feeling rather put out at the moment so I'll spare you the details.

Jorden's in the hospital still, he's been stuck in there over a month and I'm so worried about what's going to happen when he gets out. It's hard to keep finding the energy to hope, when things are so bleak all the time. Such is life. to be con't.

I didn't want to get up today. I got up anyway and got called back about that job, which I accepted on better terms than expected. Yay! Looking in my closet I realized that my suits were pretty much it for my business casual selection, as I'd worn most everything to it's faded end, and destroyed the remainder when I was in construction. (You know those days that are all committed to inspectors, and engineers and you think, "Nah, I won't actually do any real work today," so you look nice and then you end up cutting a trench?) It was time to think about wearing something other than paint stained jeans and T's, as I feel full suits are a bit flashy for day-to-day.

I then proceeded to shop for nice clothes. I got some. But as I was shopping I went into HMV to buy the Amy Winehouse CD and the 2 for 25 thing got me. A ha! I retaliated by going into Coles and compensating with books! That'll show em. Copeland, Gibson! I've missed you. Thought I'd try The World Without Us by Alan Weisman too. I even got my first ever Dummies book. I'm so tired I don't think I can read tonight. The potential of having some money coming in soon has gone to my head and apropos, I have a headache. This binge should last me quite a while.
