Update! The Musical

Since I last wrote, not a lot has happened. I have been temping at a couple places, which isn't the most exciting thing in the world, but it is paying me so I can afford things like food and rent. That's nice. It's mostly been reception work: answering phones, smiling at people when they walk by, general niceties of that sort. It can get a little lonely and boring, but I'm able to get on the Internet and do things like, oh, I don't know, update my blog, so that's a plus.

On another note, Graham and I went to the beach yesterday! Despite the cloudy skies and cool temperatures, it was a perfect day for it. We walked along Manhattan beach, which was deserted save for the surfers, stopped on the pier and had lunch, walked BACK to the car, then drove over to Redondo beach, walked along THAT pier, saw a seal (!), and drove home. We made dinner and then my roommate called with extra tickets to see Earth, so we hopped in the car, sped over (and by sped, I mean hurried as fast as we could while still within the legal parameters of, and got to see Earth for free! Thanks to the kindness of her co-workers, that is. All in all, it was a pretty perfect day.

I'm not really sure what else to say, as not a whole lot else has been going on. I've started running in the mornings, a very short distance of 1/2 mile. It's been good for me, even though I loathe it. I've been keeping up with it for about a week. We'll see how long I can keep it up. Hopefully forever. That's the goal anyway. I want to be able to run 1 mile in the mornings without hating everything while doing it. It's nice to have goals. Oh, and that whole job thing. Getting one of those is another goal of mine.

Finally, I'm using a pencil at work today. It's one of those mechanical ones that you twist so the lead comes up, but it's that same yellow-y-orange-y color that pencils that are not mechanical usually are. So of course that made me miss ACS and all the lovely people there. So if any of you are reading this, I miss you guys!

Okay, I'm pretty sure that's it for the day. Until next time!


  1. Good luck. I'll be praying for you. I'm running up against that whole "finding employment" thing too.
