29 January 2008

still alive!

Alright, so I know it's been a long long long time since I've posted anything new. In my defense, it's been a rough couple of months. I can proudly say that I'm a MASTER (at least pending any administrative difficulties, the degree should be granted on January 31, 2008!). I'm fully moved back into my parents' home in sunny Southern California. I've still no job, but searching hard for one and taking all the interviews I can get. To pass the time, I've taken a part-time job at J.Crew (but I haven't been scheduled all month) and will be substitute teaching for the GGUSD probably starting in March (if I don't get a career job by then). In the mean time, I've been hanging out with friends, helping out around the house, and, basically, just trying to keep myself from going insane. The depression is slowly starting to fall into the background a bit, and having friends around helps a lot. So that's a brief update on my life thus far.

February marks a lot of things for me. I'm going to go vegetarian for the Lenten Season (which starts February 6) as a personal sacrifice for God. February 7 is the Lunar New Year (year of the RAT!!!), which is my animal year (I'm not even sure how to phrase that). And February is "thing-a-day" month (http://www.thing-a-day.com/), which I've decided today that I'll participate in, in my own little way. I'm not registering for the official event, just because I don't want to start a WordPress account when I already use Blogger (it would entail there being two identical posts each day since I would post to the official site, and then to my own blog), but I'll still be participating. So, be expecting a blog-a-day with something creative that I've done each day of the month. And who knows, maybe I'll keep at it and do "thing-a-day" year. We'll see.
