I don't necessarily mind a whole lot though since 8 hours of it is at my new web design job. This is a different job than the one I mentioned a couple weeks ago. I got a lead from a friend, set up an interview on a Tuesday and started Friday the same week. It's PT and may not last beyond the end of the year (when another employee returns from leave), but I'm not too worried about it either way. I work there MWF and have kept my IUPUI hours too, so that's why Mondays are 12 hour days.
In other news, I find myself in an odd place; for the first time in a while, I don't really have any close friendships. Don't get me wrong, I have many friends and a few really good friends, but not the “friend who sticks closer than a brother”. This is not the fault of anyone, nor am I complaining. I suppose it's not entirely accurate to say I don't have any close friendships currently; maybe more like no active close friendships. Distance and the busyness of life can be hindrances, and I'm sure a healthy dose of laziness in cultivating those relationships factors into it.
It's taken me a while to write that last paragraph - trying to choose the right words to express myself clearly. I still don't think I quite achieved it. Everyone is their own worst critic I guess, heh heh. It seems sometimes like I don't let myself feel. See, I hate to sound like I'm complaining, because there's already enough people complaining in disproportion to how bad they actually have it. I know I don't have it bad, so I hesitated to even write this.
In less introspective news, GREGORLOVE 4 is actually coming along well. The design is pretty much finalized and then I just have to do some spiffy programming (RSS, Tags, new & improved wife application). Look what early critics are saying:
“This is pretty much the worst website ever made.” — Napoleon Dynamite
“I hope you hate it!” — Reese Roper
“This is so bad it's almost good.” - Rebecca
“This is so bad it's gone past good and back to bad again.” — Enid
