So pretty much I still love my job. This is, of course, despite the fact that I've been doing little more than working, cooking, going to the gym, and spending time with Dakota... Mostly watching Lost. What an awful show! And yet I can't stop watching it. I only really like two of the characters (the bald badass guy and the Mexican guy), so... Yeah, it's dumb.
Oh yeah, the job. Three weeks down and it's great. I have a lot more creative control here than at the paper and a lot more time to work on the stuff I make. This is mostly good, but it does mean that I never have an excuse to be lazy. I feel like I'm being challenged a bit more, which is good. Design is just really fun -- it's art I can do! -- and I'm glad I was led to do it rather than staying in writing.
I got my first paycheck today. Over $1,000. Can't complain! Also, we found a new house that is a good size for two people. I think we're moving this weekend, or at least we're going to start the process tonight or tomorrow. It will be so nice to live in a bigger place.
So at this point I feel like I'm set. I've got everything I need? What? I am so not used to that. The uncertainty of post-graduation finally gave way to the stability of a Big Girl Job, and I'm not really sure what to do with my newly found contentment. Haha. Good times! I am incredibly blessed.
I'm writing because my manager went home sick and it's two hours until the weekend and I pretty much have nothing to do. My job really is that cushy. A lot of times I am busy, but even then, I don't feel rushed or anything.
What else? A fun dream I had a week or so ago. I was at my grandfather's house, and I opened the sliding glass door in the back, and this flood of iridescent blue butterflies, peacocks and grapes came through the door. It was SO PRETTY. The butterflies were landing on me and the peacock was like, "What?" and I was like, "WTF grapes?" It was pretty sweet. I feel inspired to make a painting based on the dream. I don't see what other use the dream has other than to be pretty and make me think, kind of like art, so I might as well.
Also, we got another cat some time ago. A white one to contrast with Spooky. Luna is sweet, but I still consider Spooky my favorite.
This may be the longest entry ever written on an iPhone, so I'm going to wrap it up.
