Quote of the Day..."What the world really needs is more love and less paperwork." - Pearl Bailey

Work is uber suck lately. Lots of work to do and only me to do it. No news from either prospect yet :( I was hoping for something good, but I guess I'll see what happens here. I want out but new opportunities are arising which will mean more money and my own office. I hope I can take my pc with me too though. I love this computer. Had a good weekend, went to the local bar on Friday and had a good time until the end for reasons I choose not to mention right now. There's not enought time for the story anyhow.Saturday was good too, but I feel a bit bad for a friend of mine. She's going through a lot right now and we were taking her to the city for a night out, but the plans fell through and we ended up in Brooklyn at a place that she didn't really want to be at. I had a good time, I just hope that she did too. I thought the band was pretty good, a lot of the bands that play at this place play where we usually go as well which I see as a plus. I feel like going out tonight, just for a little bit. It's pay day so it's ok, even though I shouldn't spend the money, but hopefully that won't matter soon. Yay! Sunday is a big anniversary bash at Jenkinson's with a lot of really great bands, but nobody from around here is really available to go. I think I may go anyway, a friend from jersey invited me and it might be nice to spend some time with him. We'll see how I'm feeling about it at the end of this week.

Quote of the Day..."Yearn to understand first and to be understood second." - Beca Lewis Allen

Major lack of blogging again...just too much to do at work and too tired when I get home. But I guess that being busy is good...better than being bored.
Another interesting night last night, met some chick while spending time at a friend's house. She seemed ok upon first meeting, but turned out to have major issued, but that's just what I think. Who am I to judge another person? Anyway, chilling with friends is awesome, we always have a great time talking about stupid stuff and goofing off.

On the job front...major changes in my office, they want to transfer me to another department...actually they are transfering me, without even asking really. I have to get out, my job stinks. Thank god I have a few prospects...one in the city doing a/r and a/p, and another on the island within the court system doing federal spending. We shall soon see.

Quote of the Day... "If you have one eye on yesterday, and one eye on tomorrow, you're going to be cockeyed today." -Anonymous


Sick story about blood donation, I don't even know if this link will work, but I'll test it out anyway. Sorority girls urged to lie regarding blood donation. What is the standard of morality coming to? Donating tainted blood, I feel can be considered the same as murder to someone who may desperately need a transfusion. But I suppose many people do not think before acting, they are nothing but sheep following the herd.

Quote of the Day... "Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and you help them to become what they are capable of being. - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Getting yelled at for lack of blogging, so here it is! Had an interesting night. Nothing really eventful, just interesting. Went to the gym and now my ass hurts...no pain no gain!! It's actually turning into pain on top of pain from going the other day. Either way it was pretty cool. Thought some friends and I were going to have tea and ended up at the local bar for a bit. Not fun, I don't like it there that much anymore. I think it was just somewhere to go over the summer, but too much drama = bad time.

Ended up going for tea anyway and getting abused for something that I fully admit was a BIG mistake. Joking and laughing about it is one thing, but knowing when to stop is another and some people just don't get that. It ends up getting taken too far. Should have expected it though since that's the way jokes go, which is all it is, a time-wasting joke. I think I'm too nice. I just sat there last night and took the battering with a grain of salt. I probably could have used the whole damn shaker!!! Comments can be funny, but outright disgusting statements and violatingly crude remarks are hurtful and unnecessary, not to mention quite annoying. I don't give comebacks for abuse very often, but it doesn't mean I didn't think them. I stick to the old adage of "do unto others as you'd have done to yourself". The lack of vocalization is due to the fact that I'm not the type of person who is going to sit there and harp on some stupid thing that someone else did (or something stupid that I did for that matter). God, it's in the past....get over it and let it go already. I wouldn't treat someone in any way that I would not want to be treated myself. High expectations of decency are obviously out of the question in this case, but I didn't think that a slight bit of manners was too much to ask. Done with ranting now.

On the job front...have an interview tonorrow and I am very excited about it. It's probably not as much money as I hope for but at least it will get me the hell out of where I am. We'll see how it goes since there are a lot of things to take into consideration. I hope it works out well.
