Out from beneath the rock.

Argh. It's been forever. Again.

But fear not, gentle readers, you really haven't been missing much. In the gigantic gap between these updates, rest assured that everything has been normal and well, rather boring. Work and sleep, and sometimes that will be mixed up with a stray day off from both jobs. I remember, what seems to be an eon ago, when all I had to worry about was the next reading assignment or paper when I was college. I can make myself feel old without even breaking a sweat.

The weather, for the most part, has gotten out of its weird, hormonal depressing stage that is known as winter and gaining speed towards spring. There have been few days where Iíve gotten the opportunity to drive to the restaurant with the windows down and my music blaring in the late morning/noontime. However, every time I see dark clouds on the horizon, I secretly hope a flash snow shower. Nothing serious or that will stick to the roads, but whenever I see snow, I get nostalgic for my time I spent in the valley last year.

As for work, itís an ongoing process on many different levels. The job hunt is still elusive and somewhat stale, but I need to force myself to keep on top of things. The library job is fantastic as always. I have yet to have a bad day at that job, and for that, I love working at the local library even more. I wish I could say the same about the restaurant job. The past few weeks, Iíve been having really good serving shifts. But the past few days, I feel like Iíve been off my game. I really hope Sunday brings a better day at the restaurant.

While work ruthlessly rules my life for the most part, the past few weeks, Iíve found myself free from the jobs on Saturdays. Iíve taken advantages of these free days by either doing errands and just relaxing or doing something with friends. But I feel like Iíve become spoiled and I refused to give up my Saturdays unless I have other choice. Itís good just to have one day for yourself. Even when I work, I always try to make two hours for myself, either in the morning or when I get home, so I can relax and usually catch up on my creative writing.

Sounds exciting doesnít it? I really donít have that much of a life. Well, not a very big one. My jobs take a large chunk of the week anyways. But Iím off tomorrow so happy day! In the mean time, Iíll try to get back on the ball with updating.

Till then, cheers.
