Phew! What a week!

Phew!  What a week it has been!  I have been telling myself that I HAVE to get some blogging done every day for a week and a half, and things have only just now slowed down enough to allow me to get something down for your reading pleasure.

What, you may wonder, has kept me from my small, though beloved, audience? A confluence of things, not the least of which were moving, starting a new job, and my car breaking down again, conspired to keep me too busy or emotionally wiped out to do any writing this past several days.  Wait, that’s not entirely true, while I was trying to find something to do at work on Tuesday I worked on a poem about the lines in the city as opposed to the lines in nature.  I need to sit down and revisit it, and will probably do so sometime this next week.

I have gotten moved, and I am beginning to get settled in my new digs, although I think it is going to take another weekend or two before my living situation is 100% squared away. Heck, I had to go buy some books this week because I still don’t know where all the ones I have been reading got to! Just adding more logs to the fire I suppose.

Due to the car issues, I have not been able to establish a routine of getting to the office or anything (I spent two nights on a friend’s couch and had to ride the bus in the other morning). So far I like the new job. The office environment is so different than what I am used to. It is FAR too quiet and people work WAY more than what I have seen in the past. Having just a bit too much work to do is nice though, it really makes the day fly by. On Friday I was so intent on my work I didn’t even notice the rainstorm that passed through, even though I am RIGHT next to a window. In the next day or so I will take my roommate’s digital camera into the office and shoot a couple of pictures for you guys to see what I get to see every day.

I am still kind of scatterbrained right now, with trying to adjust my sleeping schedule and all to account for the commute, and oddly enough, a little homesick for College Station. There are a couple of people there that I dearly miss. I have a couple of cool posts planned for the next week or so, depending on how much writing I am able to get done.
