First, I’m so glad it’s Friday, you have no idea. I have a bajillion things to do and they will all be handled today because I just got my superwoman cape back from the dry cleaners. Just in time, lemme tell ya. I will be a writing, posting, drafting, editing fiend that just won’t be stopped. Watch out computer! You may overheat today. I can’t guarantee protection. There are sentences to write, tweak, finalize. Photos to place. Links to hyper. You get the idea.
Last night I watched Obama’s speech and gah. Gah, I say. Yes, we need jobs. Yes, we need to put teachers back in the classroom and stop cutting the education budget because, really? The education budget? That won’t effect our future as a country, no not at all. Except… gah. He said all the things that we need but with the same old approach. Tax cuts for small businesses, incentives for new construction that helps the economy, yadda yadda. I wish they would have let the banks fail. It would have been bad, but then it would have fixed itself eventually and made for a stronger economy. I wish that we would stop spending so much money abroad, creating a giant debt. I wish that it wasn’t so beneficial for US companies to send jobs – and not just manufacturing jobs, but office jobs, skilled worker’s jobs – everywhere else but here. I wish that the president hadn’t suspended environmental laws to help businesses – because as much as the economy is important, the planet is always most important. And I wish I knew who, for sure, I was going to vote for in the next election. But I don’t. Because everyone sucks.
The reason my schedule has been all wonky and my brain has been all spin-spin-spin is because I have an editorial internship and an office to actually show up to 3 days a week. I’m writing, and editing, and formatting and for those three days my brain is being put on a treadmill set to high. It’s amazing. I’m having the opportunity to write professional copy that I’ll use for clips when I apply for jobs, and learning how to write in a different way. That hasn’t happened since grad school and my brain is turning to noodles. The best kind noodles. Like Pad Thai or something. So, I guess that’s why posts this week have been a little weak. My brain has been occupied elsewhere. The things I’m fixated on are moving, sleep, and work. Those are not blog worthy discussions. Hi, how was your day? Yeah yeah yeah, that’s great. Let me tell you about my sleep cycle. Bor-ing. So, I promise to have more adventures this weekend and come up with a good story… or 5.
In the meantime, it’s Friday! And that means we are all almost done with the week and get to pretend we’re working starting at like 1 in the afternoon, but really we’re all just online window shopping, right? No one needs those stupid excel spreadsheets finished until Monday anyway.
