The shine of the new job has worn off somewhat but I am still… - Elena's Journal
The shine of the new job has worn off somewhat but I am still grateful and know how great my life is right now. I need to get my shit in gear at work too because I am not pulling my weight -- its too easy to be a slacker there. I have to actually have my own motivation to get to the point at work where I want to be. I think that the work is just not really very interesting and feels kind of tedious sometimes -- but its really easy and its a work environment I do not want to lose. Its too perfect. I need to feel like I can ask for a raise, that's my real motivation.

Work at the shop is still pretty good. I feel like I irritate the owner sometimes but I have a habit of just asking the nearest person a question that needs to go to a specific person. I think I'm finally getting to the end of the learning curve, though. I'm just not there often enough to retain everything. I feel like I do about work -- like I have to try harder.

SOLAR was good. It took me some work to get into character but it was good once I got into it. I feel no real interest in any plotlines right now -- its like I'm still sorting things in my head between character and storytelling so its safer just to... not. However, my character's interests have also morphed a lot. I just feel bad for Leland cause even I used her character for the "WTF is going on, ok lets go kill stuff" method of information retrieval and use. : /

My sister and Erik came into town this weekend which was nice. I hung out at my parents house and got my brakes changed -- they were making an awful noise this month and it was really concerning me. Thankfully things are fine, the rotors seem smooth, but something is a little warped, I can tell when I drive. Anyway yes my sister and Erik came and hung out and it was nice. They came and saw the shop with my mom -- my mom was a bit weird about it as expected. So funny. Of course my sister had to point out some pretty gross flash lol. THANKS JULIA

I am going to be busy this month -- which is how I like it. I get depressed when I am not keeping sort of busy. Going to Rutledge to do some repair work, maybe do something for Valentine's Day, going to Macon to work of crafty things, then gotta do sewing for SOLAR and bam, SOLAR at the end of the month.

Thats about it - work and play, work and play.

No no, it's totally fine. Actually, ok, fine. You got me. It is totally what you think it is. But it's also really awesome because it's like two internet sensations rolled into one.
