This is a book I just finished reading, Among Others. It's on the Fantasy group. I loved it too. I think I'll get the rest of this author's novels.
School has been a bit trying. In that I have never designed an entire website from Photoshop. I thought it would be easier. I mean, the hard part was learning how to place the folders into the HTML files, so that everything would be there when I loaded the site into the browser. So last night was the critique. Only a handful of us showed our work. I thought everyone would be required to do that. But no, just some. I got mine to work! But it took me all week of working on it, every day.
I guess what I wanted to write about was the way that I over heard the lab manager and my teacher talking about me. I could hear them from where I was sitting in the lab at my iMac. It wasn't the talking-behind-your-back kind of smack. It was kinda like they thought I was funny or amusing to them. I remember the teacher saying out loud, as I was loading my website in the classroom "I'm getting nervous". So then later in the lab, I sat there and listened to them both, thinking, do they not think that I can hear them? So I said "you guys I can hear you". They were both smiling at me, and Ingrid said "should we talk louder?" I remember her saying "were you surprised Christine got her site to work?" And then the teacher began talking about what he was thinking in the minutes before my website appeared on the screen. It's all good though. Later on after lecture, I showed him my other website. The one with all my drawings on it.
I got my test results back from my County test. I scored in the "B" Category. Now I wait for an interview, for the next position that comes up. It's a county-wide list. Which means that any clerical job opening with the County, I can be interviewed for, which needs that level of office experience, I may get.
Another x-co-worker/employee friend of mine has emailed me. She worked at the County job last year, but didn't come back this year. She's moving back to California from Texas again. And she wanted to inquire about work with Doculynx. So I told her what I knew, which isn't all that much. She seems to think that work will pick up again.
I was so tired that I slept until noon today. I felt good too, after I was out and about. I actually worked out at the gym. And then to the library. I feel like a get these headaches after I exercise. Sometimes they are bad. It's one of the reasons I don't do it often enough.
I cleaned in here a little yesterday. After they put the bug poison out, I found way too many dead bugs. So I had to wipe out my cupboards. I think I may clean some more tomorrow too.
I've been feeling pretty good lately too. And the weather is cooled off nicely. My cat Nala has been walking up onto my bed and laying down next to me a lot lately. She's been very affectionate with me. I love her so much. Here's a picture of her with her stuffed toys. She thinks they're babies.
And I totally like working at the library. I made a new friend with the manager, Cathy. She's from Tennessee. She's so nice too. Oh and the grocery strike never happened, so I didn't get to cross the picket lines.
Tomorrow is Sunday. I want to do some sketches again.
