Gonna be up late tonight, yesiree. Chels gets in to town at 1:30 in the a.m. Originally, she was going to get in at 11:30 p.m. but I guess her flight is delayed. Luckily, I made sure I didn't have work tomorrow. I had a feeling we'd be up late.
Tomorrow we drive down to Eugene for UO graduation. Her little brother is graduating with a degree in Archeology. Sounds fun, doesn't it?
There's about ten different places that Chelsea and I want to visit while we're there. A bunch of places on campus, Max's, Rennies, Deb's, The Glenwood, High Street Pub, Excelsior. We both decided that the sorority house was a must miss. I don't think we're going to make it to all the sights since we also have people to see and parties to go to. I'm really looking forward to it.
The last two days have seemed extremely long. I haven't slept well and I've had to get up early. Today my right arm is killing me. I can't move my arm at all laterally or I get a sharp, sharp pain in my shoulder. My elbow hurts and also the top of my hand. This is no good. It could be that I've slept on it wrong and maybe that's why I haven't been sleeping well or I'm getting some kind of carpal tunnel thing. If only I had health insurance...
With that in mind, what is it with all these companies who want to hire on a trial basis? Does that stink or what? Maybe it just goes with my age group and experience but it doesn't seem very fair. They get to hire you on temporary, with little or no benefits, probably at a reduced salary and then you have to be on your best behavior while they muse over axing you. Of course, that's how I'm assuming it would go.
Something similar seems to have just happened to a friend of mine. Unfortunately, he didn't realize that he was just "on trial" until they told him he should be looking for other work. Ouch. I feel really badly for him. He's one hell of a talent or, at least, he's really talented. Maybe too much for his own good.
Keeping a journal online... good idea or not? I'm trying not to get too sensitive to the fact that nearly every one of my clients, every one of my employers and every potential employer might look at this journal. I don't want to hide it because I like have something daily and new on my site but I can't really let it all out here, either. Where's the line? How much can I say? How much should I say?
But, you know, like, if they're cool, they'll dig it. Ya know?
