bfx is overwhelmed, so back to the headers, bitch...

WORK

Hoooooly shit. One unannounced state audit which took up all of this morning and yesterday afternoon, and a day long (scheduled) audit tomorrow with a certification agency. Monday and most of last week I was in process flow mapping sessions for a systems integration project which will "close" in April into May. Meanwhile, I'm about two weeks behind on all my other work, and now have daily work to essentially rebuild our entire waste removal process. Fuck.

In between all this, a recruiter from one of the largest, multinational, consulting agencies in the world reached out about possible positions in the Pacific Northwest...so I'm at least going to go through the interview process to both (A) re-hone my interview skills and (B) if it goes well see what they're willing to offer me.

LOVE

Dumped again. By a girl who decided to basically shut me out for a few days, and then do it over text with the reasoning that she's still working through things and isn't in a spot to manage a relationship, and since she can't call herself my girlfriend decided to end things. Meanwhile, plays it off like it's to my benefit and offers to meet in person because "she feels like shit doing this over text". Oh, okay then. Yeah, that didn't happen. Thinking of offering the olive branch, at least it feels like the mature thing to do. So, back to not actively searching for anything because who knows, maybe I'll be moving again in two months?

HUBSKI

kleinbl00, myself, and an old friend of his went a killer ambient electronic show last week. It was seriously a great show, at least for Loscil. The track linked had me questioning reality, it was so...mind bending. Between the repetition and the visual performance happening on a screen behind the stage I was losing it in a trippy kind of way. Guess it was nice hanging out with kb, too...

HOBBY

I designed and built a fucking tape rack, how cool is this!?

OTHER

I hung out with a bunch of people who are all friends and part of a church tonight. That was interesting. Incredibly nice group of people, and way out of my normal comfort zone as evidenced by the prayer circle prior to eating.

Can confirm, tape rack is cool. I have a bunch of tapes too but can't play them because my deck finally gave up the ghost.

Pretty much every thrift store and Craigslist area have tape decks. You have to wade a bit to find a decent one, but it's not too hard.

Yup, I've got a guy in mind. Repairs old electronics for a living and sells refurbs. I'll probably get one off of him, because I already know the part I need to fix mine doesn't exist. Just gotta find the time to make the trip out there.

I've had a couple of realizations about the kind of people I am attracted to, and the kind of people who are attracted to me, and how that interacts with my relationship with people in general...so maybe that's a plus?

lil  ·  301 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Realizations are a huge plus. But we only learn about love from those real-world people that wash up on our shore, not those we imagine exist. So onward, onward into the fray. Note: pm me current address. I have a radio postcard to mail you.
