Co-worker's grandson

Two more weeks, and Im done with this job.

Upon hearing the news I was leaving, my coworkers said I shouldnt leave. Work a little longer, make a little more money.

Nah, i actually decided to leave last December, so Ive done that.

Upon hearing I was leaving, managers at other properties asked me if I decided to come back, I would be welcomed with open arms.

No, I told them - I have plans.

Nice to hear, but one thing Ive learned - once you leave, dont go back. In job or relationships, there are very good reasons youve decided to leave.

Only my desire to make sure my rent and internet bills are paid thru the summer is keeping me there right now. Otherwise, my summer vacation wouldve started already. :)

My coworkers still dont believe Im leaving.

I love it when a plan comes together, but the wait - oy.

Depending on
how you look at it, Ive been waiting for a year. Three years. Five years. Twenty years.

And Im waiting a few weeks more.

One of the things I learned playing chess, is to not celebrate the victory until the game is over, not to act prematurely but act decisively when the time is ripe.

Today's horrorscope sez:

You're in a holding pattern right now. Wait until there's an opening and then move.

You may wake up feeling a little directionless, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. You are probably in a holding pattern of sorts -- waiting for the right time to come in for a landing, so to speak. There are things moving around you in unpredictable ways, but rather than going forward and hoping for the best, you're smart to stay back and let things settle on their own first. You have a very interesting view on things -- one that you should keep in mind for later.

When the time comes, you throw away the fear and MOVE.

I was hepped to this location by a sf native, as the park is hidden in plain sight. Its in no guide book Ive seen.


Craig Feerguson's Late Show:

"Dear Satan,

First of all, Happy Birthday."


So the Devil is a gemini. Figures.

Today's horrorscope sez:

Call upon your strong work ethic; the more work you put in the better the reward.

Stop overpacking -- literally and metaphorically. The universe knows exactly what you need, so why are you so paranoid about being underprepared? Trust that you'll receive exactly what you need just when you need it.

Your work has been making a steady progression, and you will finally start to sense all the possibilities. This could take your farther than you ever dreamed! A new person's avid interest in what you're doing is an encouraging sign. Try not to let flattery take all your attention right now, but be openly grateful when someone gives you a word of support. It feels good to be recognized -- and valued -- for who you are. Get used to it. This is merely a taste of what's coming.

There's nothing like sweat equity to make you feel like you've really put a part of yourself into something. Physical effort toward your goal will not only pay off in progress, but it will also pay off emotionally. Your work ethic is admirable, and it has been gaining you a throng of quiet admirers -- one of whom has a lot of pull. Keep going at it with your humble, hardworking approach. Above anything else, it will feel good to be tired at the end of every night.

Ooh, nice. :)
