First day of college was today. I think you'd have to be a professional student before you could actually consider it a non-stressful experience. Even when you've got all your ducks lined up in a row, you feel all jittery and out of place. Gotta say it though, very little actually went wrong today.
Parking was atrocious, but everyone makes such a major deal over how bad the parking is that you forget how bad the parking situation is. Then when you're in that situation and you end up parking in Lot G which is a quarter mile away…. you can't help but think, 'whoa! the parking is really frakin' bad! D:'. Then you remember, that's exactly what you knew all along and you laugh at yourself… it doesn't make the parking better, but you're mood is just a tiny bit lighter….well, at least it was for me :)
Soooooooo! All of my classes are on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays... although, my fourth class is just on Mondays and Wednesdays… I have Sociology first at 9, and it probably would be better if I got up and left the house at 7:45, and then just waited around until 9 for my class. If you're curious as to why…reference the above paragraph <..<
I've never really understood exactly what Sociology is… Evidently, sociology, anthropology and psychology are all in the same field, only they have more specific focuses. I look forward to actually understanding what the hell that means, and hope to God it doesn't bore me into insensibility :3 After Sociology is English Comp I, which is actually jointed with Sociology… evidently it's something that helps you to apply skills you'd learn in one course in …all courses…or something. I dunno. At this point my brian's kinda fried anyway. I'm generally bad at lecture classes…because my ADD kicks in and just flairs up into this horrible thing. I'm kinda the same at reading though… I tend to read stuff and not remember a thing of what I've read. I've tried reading out loud, but that doesn't really help much. But the English Comp class is also a 'discussion' class…which might be better than a lecture class if only because it's a little more engaging….provided that I actually engage, of course.
But after those two classes (which appear to be THE classes, the hardest classes I will have), I have Algebra. I never thought I'd say this, but… I think I might actually enjoy/not despise this. They're starting off with basics, so instead of straining my brain to remember what I used to know (and purposefully forgot) about algebra, I actually get a refresher course. Also, the lessons are all on computers and you listen to headphones while someone explains what you're supposed to be learning and you take notes and …stuff. It's pretty cool actually. Or maybe it's just my love of computers coloring my natural abhorrence of the dreaded beast (aka algebra).
I then have my hour break, and at 1 I'm off to Intro to Info Tech, which is a computer class. Intro to Info Tech is actually longer than the other classes… Most of the classes are only 50 minutes, but ItIT is an hour and 20 minutes long, but that's because we only meet on Mondays and Wednesdays.
You know how, when you have a bunch of classes, you designate one as the 'easy' class? It's not really easy, but in comparison to the others, it may as well be, right? Well, Into to Info Tech is that class. It'll be great too, because as much as I loved Word 2003…it's the old version now. So I'll probably get a better understanding of how to work the newer programs :)
The instructors are really cool though. I mean, I haven't had a single problem with any of my teachers at all. They all seem pretty awesome at this point… of course, it's still early. But they all seem pretty accessible. During Intro to Info tech, I got on my student e-mail and added all my teachers' emails to my contacts… just in case.
That is my 'thus far' report of college…thus far o..o' There really isn't much else to say. I have chapters to read over and stuff to do, but over all I have to say, the experience wasn't as daunting as I thought it would be. As long as our instructors don't make us constantly play these ridiculous social games and causing my social anxieties to flair up, I should be fine… I suppose I'll be fine even with the social anxieties…. they just don't make it easy -..- Oh well. I'll put on my big girl panties and deal with it. It's all I know how to do.
Guess that's all for now. Later, Sunshines :)

- 09:58 Queen Anne's Lace has been popping up all over the place. The flower has such an intricate pattern,... dailybooth.com/u/3670h #
- 11:37 Dad finally finished up pouring the foundation for his shed, with some help from the boys and the pastor. #
- 12:10 We're headed to Branson :) #
- 13:32 What's all this I hear about boycotting BP? So because one rig made a huge mistake we're going to put millions into unemployment? Geeze -..- #
- 13:35 @Davlenagain People in general rarely make sense. Suppose they wont try for it now. #
- 13:38 @wotcherscamp That's a tad illogical. BP is a company. The crew on the rig are the ones who made the mistake. I'm guessing they are paying. #
- 13:39 And no ammount of punishment will fix the problem -..- #
- 13:43 @ShinnodaDude Six letters: google. It's major news. #
- 13:44 This should sound out to other oil companies the importance of saftey regulations... My dad's rig just did that procedure with no problems. #
- 13:45 Countless rigs do that, but they follow the safety regulations. #
- 13:48 @wotcherscamp It's illogical because punishing BP as a whole will involve punishing people in no way connected to this. #
- 13:49 @wotcherscamp If your dad worked for BP he'd be out of a job, and through no fault of his own. #
- 13:51 @wotcherscamp dont think for an instant that I've forgotten the wetlands. I just understand that no ammount of punishment will make it right #
- 13:54 You can punish BP all you want. When your villian is gone, you'll still have oil in your wetlands. Forgive me for seeing a biger picture. #
- 14:04 It'll only put millions of families into unemployment if you just focus on punishment. #
- 14:08 @wotcherscamp You know, if I didn't know any better, I'd think you were actually picking a fight when all I did was state a simple opinion. #
- 14:13 @wotcherscamp All I said is that punishing everyone connected to BP wont solve any one's problem. Still fail to see where that's wrong. #
- 14:16 @wotcherscamp And btw, this is a discussion over twitter. You aren't really standing up for anyone. You're tweeting. #
- 14:19 By the way, having a dad who works in the oil field. BP is already spending millions a day to plug this hole. #
- 14:25 That's odd. I thought I was asking you to objectively look at something and see more than your own part of the problem. I appologize. #
- 14:34 @wotcherscamp You're the one getting worked up over this, not me. I'm just stating my opionion. It doesn't bother me that we disagree. #
- 14:41 @Davlenagain Tell me about it. Dad working in the industry gives us a unique view into that business. #
- 15:23 Why hello Branson Landing. #
- 15:44 Just got through shopping at Belk. I'm set for about a year, and, dear God, but it was much needed. #
- 17:10 Home. Fixing a home spa thingie up for Mom :) #
- 17:17 So tired... and so sick and tired of being sick and tired. I actually can't wait till my doctor's appointment -..- #
- 17:24 This is a picture my dad took of me and my horse Rocky. I was probably about 16 or 17, so this was about 10... dailybooth.com/u/36drq #
- 18:21 It doesn't matter anymore... #
- 21:23 Gawd...I have the worst sinus head ache now =..= #
- 21:25 =..= Gotta remember tomorrow to try and forget today. If Mom starts to think I'm depressed, she'll get worried. #
- 21:27 Can't wait till I can shower... #
- 22:10 there's a point where you just don't deserve anything you're going through. #
- 22:52 Towels are washed and put away. Must shower now. Early morning tomorrow =..= #

- 21:27 @wotcherscamp ...crap :( #
- 21:29 @wotcherscamp ...why do we need to substitute sugar again? #
- 21:32 @wotcherscamp hm. Guess I'm gonna switch back to sugar. Especially since I have that digestive problem -..- #
- 21:35 @wotcherscamp I'll try that too. #
- 21:38 @wotcherscamp Sryup and peanut butter is awesome too. Probably not as healthy tho o..o #

What a couple of nights. Reiko is officially married, and the whole thing went off without a hitch. The rehearsal was maddeningly long, if only because after the first clueless dry run the bride’s maids broke everything down and rewrote the hole thing. Seriously, we kept just thinking of ways to make it more streamline and just put little hints of tradition. So, we rehearsed one, figured out all the problems , redid everything (which took for ever), then there was the dinner for everyone who attended the rehearsal.
One thing that was really cool was, Chibi came to hang out with me around 2...well, the rehearsal was at 3:45. Reiko told her that she was invited to the rehearsal and the dinner afterwards, but Chibi had said that she had made dinner plans with her Dad. She said that she would hang out till around 5ish, and then leave to eat with her dad. Chibi hung out with me while we waited for everyone to arrive, and she hung out while we practised, which must’ve been boring. I looked up at like 4:45 and she was still there, and I was like, “Uh, Chibi, don’t you need to leave?” and she was like, “No. Dad called me and said he has to stay at work, so I’m gonna just stay here.” So, it was so fun. After the whole process of, you know, rehearsing. We went and hung out and ate and made fun of each other and had fun! It was great. The most fun wedding rehearsal I’ve been to...actually, now that I’m thinking about it, I’m wondering if it’s the only one I’ve been too...O..O
We came back here, and Jim and Reiko opened their Christmas presents, which was fun. Then Reiko asked Chibi and I if we’d go back to her house and help her pack up some stuff. I was exhausted, but so was Reiko, so I couldn’t really say no. We went there and came back, and tried to help Reiko’s mom with decorating the reception hall and all.....but I really was exhausted at that point. So I got upstairs and took my shower. It occurred to me that I wouldn’t be as alert the next morning as I might have hoped. So I sprayed some of that stuff that helps your hair to keep heating products from damaging it, and then I let it dry natural for a bit and then blow dried the rest of the way. Then I just straightened it as much as I could. By the time I passed out it was nearing 1 in the morning.
I woke up this morning around 7:15...I was kinda surprised, and seriously dragging, but I made myself get up and straighten my hair. I got dressed and went downstairs. I’m walking to my car and I hear someone call my name and it’s Jim and his family. They want to know where we could go and eat breakfast. We ended up at Wafflehouse and even if the it a skeezie place, they did make an excellent sausage, egg and cheese biscuit. I have to give them that. We had fun talking and enjoying our food and coffee. Jim’s Uncle told him, “It’s not too late, Jimmy...we could take you back to Kentwood.” and I turned to Jim with big pleading eyes and said, “It’s a better life for you there, Jim! It’s a better life for you in Kentwood!” he cracked up and said, “I guess I’m just a glutton for punishment. Then..I’m not sure why, but we went to the Harley Davidson shop that was right next door. I was like, “So, Jim....you more of an ‘Easy-Rider’ man or a ‘Crotch Rocket’?” He grins and retorts with, “Nah, Reiko’s more of the Crotch Rocket. I’m easy rider all the way.” I laughed myself silly at that. We looked around a bit and then just headed back to the hotel.
I made sure my hair was read and put on all my make up. Then I went to the church. Since I was the only one who had their hair and make up right, I went ahead and put on my dress first. It was a fight to get it on, and really I didn’t like it very much. It was too broad up top, and the sleeves weren’t as nice as I thought they’d be, and it wasn’t low in back but it was low enough that I couldn’t wear my bra =..= But I dealt with it and just sucked it up. Tabby (one of the other bride’s maids) had brought that skin to fabric tape, and I needed the side of the dress to be taken in slightly under the arm, so we did that. Then Tabby put on her dress....
Oh...sweet....God....Tabby is small, right? Like, make you sick small. She had told the dress shop that she’d probably be fine in a size 6, but they insisted she get an 8 and then allow them to take it in. Well, she went along with it, but she didn’t realise they were going to charge her over $80 in alterations. Then...she put the dress on....and it hovered over her chest so far, if she so much as moved she’d end up flashing us. She was so upset, and rightly so! So, we took it in ourselves - first with safety pins and then with actually sewing it. Then she just used the tape, and there was a shall/wrap that came with the dress, so she used that to make sure it didn’t seem weird.
Hollis, on the other hand (the only remaining bride’s maid) looked awesome, and needed almost no alteration to her dress. I mean, we all needed help situating ourselves and zipping up and adjusting our trains and sashes, but over all, I think we just pulled together and helped each other out and that’s what made it all great.
While we were getting ready, Reiko was taking her pre-wedding Bridal pictures. Then, once we were all as ready as we were going to be, we all took pictures together. The photographer girl was smart enough to set the camera up to take like 5 pictures one after the other, so if any of us blinked or our faces just didn’t look right, it would continue to take pictures. We tried various poses - some silly (shocking I know!) and some formal. By the time she was done with us and ready for the boys, she came over to us and said “Wow...so that’s 630 pictures taken, and the wedding hasn’t even started yet.” We laughed at that.
We waited in the rooms adjacent to the baptismal while the boys filed in through the side doors, and then when the pastor assured us they were all inside and wouldn’t see Reiko, we all left out the bak way to the next door area to wait till the ceramony started. When it was finally time for us to go, we gathered in the foyer. Mr. Ernie, Reiko’s dad, came over and thanked me for coming down and going through all this. As we were talking, I mentioned to him that, when the pastor asked “Who gives this woman to be married?” he kept saying, “I do.” and it was a little odd to me. He asked why and I told him that it should be “Her mother and I do.” because Mrs. Marry Jane has been orchestrating all this and she’s giving Reiko away as much as (if not more than) he was. So he nodded and said it did sound better.
The Wedding itself....was a very big slice of awesome. Everything pretty much went off without a hitch. And I find that the bride’s maids really did work as a unit. I mean, in the foyer, while we were waiting, I check both the girls’ trains and make sure their dresses are situated. And then whenever I’d have to move (to adjust Reiko’s train and help her, or to give the rings or sign as a witness), Hollis would lean in and tell me if I needed to move a smidgen, or she’d adjust my train. So, we really watched out for each other and helped each other out. I really think that’s why the wedding went off without a hitch.
I had Jim’s ring...and it’s a simple silver band with a celtic weave inlay into it.....and I have no pockets. So I kind had to slip it only my thumb and hide it under my other hand as I clutched my bouquet. Though, really, aside from handing over the rings and signing as a witness (my name’s the first signature on that paper!) my job was really to see that her train was fluffed and out behind her....then return to my spot. That was it. I must say that I did tear up just a tiny bit when they were reading their vows to one another and when her Dad walked her down the isle. But I kinda just made myself get over it and focus on what I was doing.
After Reiko and Jim went down the isle, I joined with my groom’s man and when we got to them in the foyer, we all high fived each other! It was hilarious! We were all high fiving, like total dorks. Then they received a few congradulations and made their get away. We lingered for a little while, mainly talking amongst ourselves. Then...we gathered up everything (along with a few of Reiko’s things) and headed back to the hotel for the reception.
Chibi and I were the informal DJs...as well as the Video-ographers....Chibi had to record everything while the ceremony was going on (I couldn't do it being a bride’s made), but during the reception, we shared the ownership of both titles. We worked the music and the camera. When I had to take pictures, Chibi had the camera. After all the pictures were taken, it was time for the bride and groom to have their first dance. Chibi was supposed to announce it, but she didn’t really want to (nor did she have the voice for it really), so she asked me to do it. So I told her to record me and I’d do it.
Admitedly...I have s et of pipes on me...a strong voice really, one that cuts through noise and above chatter. I boomed out, “Can I have your attention, please!” then once the hush had fallen, I followed with, “It’s now time for the first dance...will the lovely bride and her dashing groom please report to the dance floor!” ....and promptly came to near tears again at the sight of them slow dancing. It was very nice and very sweet. There were a couple of moments like that...like the last real dance which was between Reiko and her dad and Jim and his mom. Moments that just hits you, you know? And it made all the joking fade away, and the gravity of the event settled with a profound clarity. I was happy...and I wanted to cry.
Then, we ate cake! Oooh, and it was some good cake! Reiko remarked that the frosting was amazing, and I have to agree, but the cake in general was just good. Then she reminded me of the price, and Ladies and Gentlemen, I can now say that I’ve tasted a $300 cake and it was good....not as good as my sushi, but definitely good.
There were a few more silly dances. We caught some great stuff of the reception on the DVD....we were some of the great stuff on the DVD XD. But...the time ran out. About 45 minutes afterwards, I really couldn’t take the pain in my feet any longer. There were maybe a dozen people in there, and I knew that I had blisters and aching feet now with a down bed and wonderful shower upstairs. So I quit decided to quit the party. I gave Reiko a hug and a kiss and told her goodnight and the same with her mother and father. I looked at Jim and said, “Permission to hug?” He looked away, let out a sigh and nodded reluctantly, giving me a one-arm embrace. I’ll take what I can get.
I limped upstairs and showered...by then, my feet were so bad and I was in so much pain, I made sure to do very little walking. Mom took pity on me and rubbed lotion on my feet and massaged them carefully for quite some time. Tomorrow is church, but afterwards I intend to go to the movies with Chibi...she won’t be in town much longer, and I would love to spend more time with her. Then Monday, I’ll be driving to Abbeville to pick up Scamp and Brian for a day together with sushi and just hanging out.
...today was the most wonderful day...
Welcome to the longest week of my life. Man, it’s just been insane. Work’s intense because I’m always tied to my screen for hours and taking random breaks only when it feels like my head will explode. Thank goodness it actually paid off, because I’m caught up quite a bit now. I’ve also been writing guides to tasks that only I do...that’s always fun.
I went out and got Scamp Saturday. The drive was fun, but my house was being whittled down little by little in the 4 hours it took. My parents had moved everything from upstairs into the shed and many of the things I just didn’t need as well. My mattress was on the floor downstairs. During the down-time we had when my parents were busy with...something else…Scamp and I exchanged birthday gifts! She loved her gifts and I was sooo happy! I got her the Hoard key chain and made it into a necklace, and I got her a Figure Print of Fallena! It was so awesome! And she loved it and stared at it in awe for a long long time. Scamp was...uh, a little disappointed when one of my gifts didn’t really work out. She and Bear had gotten me a beautiful necklace of an owl flying with a moonstone in it’s claws, but she’d also gotten me this tank that has fake jellyfish in it...but, the pump for the tank didn’t work so the jellyfish just sank to the bottom of the tank -..- so yeah, she was disappointed. I loved the necklace though! I told her, “I shall call him ‘Jareth’ and he shall be mine :-D!”. That night was miserable, because my dad’s snoring is unholy...and since we were all sleeping in the same room, that really came into play that night.
Sunday, after church, we all went to Subway. Tried that new Chicken Pizziola or whatever it’s called...it wasn’t bad. Just…not something I’d go out of my way for. When we got home, Mom and Dad had packed up to leave for New Orleans, but the battery on Dad’s truck died. So he had to go to town and get a new one. But once that was done, Scamp and I were pretty much on our own. The geek fest began and much talking and giddy babbling commenced.
Monday was a little harsh...work was just so intense after the more busy than usual weekend. Also, at this point, everyone’s panicked because they realize it’s my last week. Monday and Tuesday went by pretty much the same. I was so very very tired, and went home to talk more with Scamp and vaguely pay attention to Bones. We packed as much as we could, but even when we were doing that, we were talking so much it was like we weren’t working. My parents actually got back from N.O. that afternoon, but they were staying with my Aunt Carolyn for the night. And, yesterday, I canceled my DSL for the 20th, and then later that day, Scamp tells me that they unhooked the computer and packed the wires in a box =..= so yeah...work’s the only way to post aside from Voice Post...which may happen tomorrow ^..^ Scamp managed to crank out some seriously awesome WoW fan fiction too. I dunno if it's cause we just talk about our character so much or because here she can relax a bit more or what, but it was awesome! And just in time too, because my parents showed up to pack everything just after she finished =..=
Oh! And I found something I desperately wanted. I’ve been wanting a mac for so long, but I can’t afford it. Aaaand, I’d been wanting to get a lap top too, because…well, sometimes I shut my computer off and late at night I get ideas to write...and I’d just like to have a laptop. Especially since my Dad was saying there are two colleges in the town and I might go back to college again o..o But anyway! I looked on Amazon.com to see if there were any good laptops that weren’t too highly priced. Well, I found a pretty awesome MacPro...and it’s about $700 (yes, it’s considered used, but it’s ‘Like New’ so I’m sorta ok with that!), which for a Mac is really awesome! So, I was thinking of saving up my next two checks as much as possible (which is what I’d be doing anyway) and spending my money on that...Merry Christmas to Me, you know? It’d be nice...
Oh, and last night, after class, everyone had a little party for me with this awesome cake and everything! It was funny because they gave me the cutting knife, and I sorta twirled the handle a bit so that the point was facing downward and just stabbed in the center of the cake, and everyone who was watching went, “Whoa!” After we ate and went over to join the others that were sitting about, C.J. asked me “So, did you get any more s words?” and I was like, “S words? Like…Salamander? Or...Sincere?” and he was like, “No! Swords!” and I was like. “oh....” only a minute later did I get S Words put together equals Swords...kinda like Flo Rida, put together is Florida. Yeah -..- I was tired. But yeah. I told him that I’d found the Halo Sword on Amazon...and that I had a whole Wish List dedicated to various swords and weapons...he was thrilled, but I’m not quite sure why O..o Funny how it amazes me to meet someone just as geeky as I am...in a place where I thought I knew how everyone already was before.
So...today Reiko comes over. The girls said that they’re treating me to Zen’s (well, they said it was my choice so booya :-D.). There are still things to worry about...but I kinda don’t want to anymore. I’m so tired and I can’t. So I’m just going to give the girls at work their Christmas/Going Away presents and have fun and enjoy my last few days here. I even brought my camera today to mark the occasion. I don’t have enough pictures of the girls as far as I’m concerned. So that’s all I’m worried about today. I do still need a change of address form, and to talk to my Edward Jones guy, but I’m thinking that’s something I might be able to squeeze in today and tomorrow. I’ll just have to check. But I refuse to worry about it.
I guess I’m off again. I was taking a little brain break because in the little time I’ve had sitting down I manage to get 7 pages of stats done =..= I can’t wait till 5. So, I’m off again, Sunshines.
The day’s been pretty crap. Over-all, my mood…is ‘…meh.’ About, well, just about everything. We have a new president…meh. I have a new driver’s license…meh. It’s just been that type of day. And, I honestly can’t work up enough enthusiasm about any of it. Then again, I was never excited about any of it in the first place.
As for the president...well, McCain wasn’t a spotless lamb, but he was the candidate I felt a tad bit closer to. Does that mean he’s my ideal? No. Just the closest choice I could make from what I did have to choose from. Now, Obama’s president...quite a mile-marker really. I’m certain some people are upset about that. Truthfully, I disagree with him on many levels, but he’s the authority now. Way I see it, he’ll either help or harm the country, but either way life’ll go on. Meh.
What a fiasco this morning. I decided to go in to work late and get my diver’s license renewed. Tomorrow would be the 30 day mark of when it needed to be renewed, and I really didn’t want to wait. I had thought, before, that I might be moved sooner, so I was sort of waiting till I could renew it in Arkansas...but that’s still half a month away. So, I drove on down to the DMV (hardest place in the world to find), and we got there...around 7:45, but they don’t open till 8. We waited and waited with about 2 dozen other people. Then we walk in and it says we must have proof of registration for all transactions. So, we go to the car and get that…only to realize that my proof of insurance expires this month. So! We go to State Farm…which...doesn’t open till 9. We went across the street to Burger King to wait. Did all that, took care of everything there and then went back to the DMV. Once you got it in was less than a 10 minute wait before I was serviced. Finally...Mom dropped me off at work, but by then it was 9:30. It was just a long and frustrating morning. Probably why I’m in such a ‘meh’ mood.
On a more exciting subject – for me at least – I finally got some contact from Kth. She finally got a scanner to show me the bases for the portraits I asked her to draw for me so very long ago. She’s been going through a few tough times as well, but now that she has free time, she could actually get around to focusing on the stuff I asked for. The base sketches are pretty sweet, so I can only imagine how awesome the finished products will be. They’re very realistic looking, and I’m very happy with them. I just can’t wait till she applies colors and they’re finished :D
But yeah..that’s all so far. I’ll talk later, Sunshines….if I can work up the enthusiasm.

I’ve been trying to spend more time with Mom and Dad in the evenings/afternoons when I get home from work. I make a point to watch America’s Funniest Home Videos with them. Mom and I even went to Pier 1 and Bed, Bath & Beyond yesterday after I got off from work. We just agreed to meet there, and we looked around a bit. I liked a few things that I saw, but even with so much percent off the price was too steep. Bed Bath and Beyond was fun too if only because they have so amny useful items….but once again, they’re very expenseive. I can get the same things at Wal-Mart….even if I can’t find the same quantity of things -.- Mom and I are supposed to meet up at the mall today to look at their Crocs. I need to get a pair of the croc flops.
We’ve got lights and water at the Nexus. Mom went and had them put it on in her name though, because she said it was $20 cheaper. And $20 saved is $20 earned ^.^ We went over and looked at it, and all those cleaning supplies that were there last time I checked had vanished. Mom said we’d try to get in there some time this weekend and clean the place up a bit. It depends on how things pan out...
I know that Scamp might (just might) be coming over this Friday…don’t know how she’s getting here or when it’ll happen exactly, but the tentative plan is that she’s coming over. I’m going to just assume that until told otherwise. Also, Chibi has said she’d be coming home on the 26th or 27th. She wasn’t sure. She didn’t say which month…so I assumed it’d be this one. So, I’m not sure how the weekend will pan out. If Chibi does come down, I’m definitely going to want to go over there and visit. Especially since I’m not sure how long she’ll be down. Heck, I don’t even think she knows. We’ll figure it out. I think Chibi, Scamp and Reiko all enjoyed each other’s company when we last got together, so I don’t think visiting with the ‘Mouto-chans would put a terrible crip in our style. It would just multiply the madness ^.^
Ashely started working this week. Monday she came in and got almost all the sanning done, and then finished up the rest on Tuesday. Now, she’s doing the mail (sorting it and putting it into charts and then labeling the charts). After she’s done with that, she’ll give me the charts and I’ll put them in stats. So far she fits in, even if she is a little quiet. I think that’s just her being new here though. She works hard and gets the job done, so that’s all that matters…I guess.
You know, I’ve been talking about how there’ll be such a huge change whenever I move into the Nexus...how my interent will be so limited…but I work with access to the internet all the time. In fact, I think now I post more at work, than I do at home. O.o Probably because sometimes, I don’t want to look at a computer after doing it all day =_= But still, I’ll have access if anything needs to get done. So no worries.
I guess that’ll be all for now. Stats await me. See ya’ll later, sunshines.
