-“Seaside Rendezvous” by Queen.
Listen to the song here:
So anyway. I know I’m usually pessimistic and cynical, and while I am still cynical, I am a little less pessimistic today.
So, as you know if you read yesterday’s entry, today I was to go to PM Park and fill out an application. Well, the lady in charge is very informal with some things, (which I knew already, from my brother).. She gave me my first four days of work (starting on the 15th), and told me we’d worry about the application later.
And, the weather today was just gorgeous. Sunny and in the 70s, with a breeze. It was euphoric.
This is amazing. I felt so good on the drive home, I wish I had a button I could just push and I’d instantly feel like that. For at least half an hour, I had that “this is amazing, I could conquer the whole damn world” feeling. It left, of course, once I thought of how nervous I’ll be at this job, at first. Not the dishwashing. I’ve done it before, and I wash dishes so often I could practically do it in my sleep. It’s the ever present social weirdness I have that’ll be the most nerve wracking, but I’ll live. I have to if I want to be able to do anything. Anyway, I told this lady that the only time I’d really need off would be four or five days when I go visit Vanessa. I’ll bring her my community band schedule when I go in for work, as those will be the only other times I’ll need to be off.
After I got home from PM Park, it was so nice out that I wanted to open a few windows, and the front and back door (we have screen doors as well as regular ones, of course). So I went onto the front porch to open the door, and I found my pencil case with my colored pencils, and thin colored sharpies (I previously thought I’d lost these when I was still taking classes at NIACC).. Added to my already present happiness, I had to draw.
I didn’t draw anything new, but rather went over some outlines of two drawings I’d penciled before. It was awesome.
To add to this mish mash of subjects that make up most of my blog entries, I’m currently making my way through this like, 10 part video series the library has that’s about the Vietnam war. All I have to say so far (I finished the first two tapes, I checked out 3 and 4) is, wow. All I can tell right now is that we sorta overstepped our boundaries and got a bit power hungry. The U.S. seems to be good at that.
Well, the only other thing I’d write about is my camera related thoughts, but you’ve heard that before and I am guessing you’re tired of it.. So I will end this entry. TTYL. 😉
Okay, you know the good weather of which I just spoke? It was nice, but it ended a bit ago. Now we’re getting rain thunder, lighting, and, super strong wind.. We had a window open (when it wasn’t raining so hard), and the curtains were doing that thing where they stick to the screen, and then blow out type of thing.
