I meant to post yesterday, but the day got out of hand. I found myself totally disoriented yesterday in getting back to work. My guess is because I was away for so long and didn't really do anything. I guess I did some freelance stuff in the Christmas holiday, but not very much. Most of the time I was up at Gavin's family's house in Ojai. So yesterday was difficult, especially since this week I have a couple of freelance projects that need to be completed, in addition to my monthly Family Promise meeting, in addition to needing to contact various people either to catch up or to plan for something to happen (eg, haircut). So, I'm not really looking forward to this week flying by.
I had weird dreams last night/waking up. Not bad ones, mind you, because I wanted to continue to sleep to see them through--I just remember them being weird, without remembering any details.
We won our first softball game of the season last night!!! But before you get too excited, we won because it was a forfeit. I don't know if it was too cold for the other team (it's been in the very low 40s lately, which is COLD here), or because they are a new team and didn't know where to go, or what, but we won. Last night's game, though, serves as a way the City ranks teams, so I just hope they don't put us in a tough league.
At Gavin's parents' house this past weekend we did some fun stuff. We went to a butterfly reserve in Santa Barbara, we went shopping in Santa Barbara (and saw Anne Hathaway while we were up there--I probably exceeded my celebrity sightings all year in the last two weeks!), we played this game called Speedminton, which is Badminton without a net, and we played ping pong on their new ping pong table. All in all, though, I was ready to get home--spending a week and a half (essentially) somewhere, out of your own routine, in someone else's house (no matter how much you like them), is a bit draining.
Lately I've been feeling a little sad, maybe a little depressed, and I'm not sure why. I am hoping and counting on it being that time of the month, but I guess I'm discouraged for all of my friends who don't have jobs right now, and discouraged that I don't have a job where I feel like I am using my talent, interest, and education. And I guess I've been thinking about my career future and just can't seem to picture anything being any other way. I hope that all of 2009 won't be this way.
Time for breakfast and to get to work!
