Quick 'n Dirty.

I've wanted to update for a while -- either here or on mySpace. I've especially been inspired by Erica & Christina, not that I have the time to think about any one thing long enough to come up with anything so insightful or entertaining.

It doesn't help that I'm having issues setting up my cookies on my Firefox at home. And at work, they've announced that 3% of the company is going to be layed off. Blogging about that from work... doesn't give me a warm fuzzy. They're going to inform people by the end of August. I don't know if it matters, but at least I've got steady work for another year or so & I'm one of the few that has quite a bit of knowledge about what I'm doing -- not that I feel that confident.

Work is still a challenge -- mostly just with one person I work with. He is just so abrasive. I've been avoiding asking him questions lately, even though I should have long ago, just so I don't have to deal with him. Thank goodness there's a cube wall between us.

Classes are still going. I'm on my last one (for now). I'll be done in less than 3 weeks -- maybe even 2 if I'm ready to take the final early. I've got a project due in 1.5 weeks -- the day before my sister flys back out to school in AZ. Mind you, she got here yesterday, the first day that I started really thinking about the project. *sigh*

As soon as she leaves, Tim's family comes out to visit for 2 weeks from Kansas. I'm crazy looking forward to that. I love his family so much. I really hope that I get my exam out of the way before they're here. Then I won't have to worry about studying for my final while they're here.

I should really get going and be off to work. I'd be there by now if I didn't feel like updating so much, not that it's really anything that much. Mostly, I'm overwhelmed by life yet again (still?) and don't give myself time to sit down and figure out my priorities. At least last night was somewhat relaxing, watching my sister play video games and then watching So You Think You Can Dance last night. I even remembered to vote this week. :)

Only a few more hours until I'm done work for the week. Then I'll have the weekend to relax and get stressed over my project. The joys of my life. I'm almost through. Then I can get my life back in order. :D

Ewww... I *ABHOR* abrasive coworkers!!! I have one of those, too. Ick. I'm sorry you have to deal with that. I just usually try to kill them with kindness. Even if I fail miserably I don't end up feeling like sh*t because I know I was nothing but nice.

I've heard that advice before, but I haven't taken anyone up on it yet. Maybe I should start today... Thanks for the reminder. :)
