The Old Crowd

This here is a picture of my former co-workers. This is at the end of a great party on my last day of work. They had a cake for me and everything. Again the coincidence thing this year. The party was almost exactly four years to the day from my last day at the American Lung Association in Florida. And here it is the ALA in DC and saying goodbye again. So interesting. One of the best parts was this gift from my friend Jennifer. She is so talented...and a thief since this slogan was dreamt up by one of the company's committees and never used. I have worn it with pride in my neighborhood with some hoochie mama shorts while walking my dog. Pretty funny.

Third Week

I know these posts from work aren't very exciting, but I really haven't had much time to do anything else. I can't believe that I have been pulling 10 hour days a couple times a week, which is nothing I have ever done before. I'm needing to get myself together and leave at 5pm. Just so I don't kill myself.

I think part of this reason is because I'm still in the learning mode and haven't yet settled into a routine. I'm still running sprints instead of getting a pace together for the marathon. I'm tired and trying to get my routine sorted out. I have to be patient with myself knowing that this will happen.

Meditation from Isaiah 40:31 -

But those who wait on the LORD
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.

A promise, a challenge to seek His face even more than ever before. Because only in Him am I able to stand.

Where Have All My Creative Juices Gone?

So it's been ages since I've posted. I guess that's what happens when you have a real job...the time for fun and games is sucked away by the dry corporate air I find myself in. Just kidding. This place is great so far.

I'm here at the crack of dawn which would shock my former co-workers. I arrive in the office around 8am every day. Pretty crazy. This morning it was so quiet I thought there should be a Good Morning Discovery Education radio show. I think it would go over big as long as everyone already had their coffee. Otherwise I might have things thrown at me.

Keep up the good work. I gotta get back to mine.
