Well, I've had all of my classes once.

Good times - I hope.
I really don't think this semester will be too hard. The hard class for me is definetly going to be accounting. The other classes seem to be simple regurgitation for the most part. And my information systems class looks like it's going to be total, frosted, warm cake.

So, I shouldn't have to worry too bad. Except for accounting. But, I have a little bit of time to look over stuff. Of course, AJ is a super student, and she probably thinks I'm the biggest slacker in the world. And in reality, if I was to be in "slackerthon 2005" I probably wouldn't come in last place by a long shot. But, I just cant sit down and force myself to study for hours and hours every night. I can do my homework, read the chapter, etc, but if I don't get it it doesn't do me much good to beat my brain till I can't see straight trying to get information in.

Plus, I need time to play around with my computer gadgets/games.

So, all in all, good times. I'll probably be calling on Audrey (sister in law) for some help from time to time, cause accounting is gonna be ack-ish, but other than that... it's all gravy, baby!

Oh, and for those of you who care, Google released a new Instant Messaging service today. It's not got a lot of features to it YET, but it looks very very promising. It's also slated to have incredible voice support for talking to friends online (I haven't tried this feature yet...but I will soon!) The only thing you have to have to get started is a Gmail Acccount, and in reality, who doesn't want over 2 gig's worth of storage for e-mail, word documents, etc? Thanks to the guys at Xmail, I use my gmail as a place so I can access important files from all over the place, no matter what computer I'm at! Good show, Google! You just keep on crankin out those products :)

K, I'm out...

Tech Support - I have days like this *L*

Kind of a boring day today. Went job searching, well sortof. I decided to put in resumes at the places I wouldn't mind working too bad. Got an on the spot interview... call back on Thursday to see if they're gonna have a position open.

I don't really want to have to leave where I'm at, but the atmosphere is crummy, and I'm tired of all the junk that happens on a daily basis. So, something else coming up would be nice :)

Back to normal tomorrow, though. Have a good week, ya'll

Interview and such

Well, after my phone interview yesterday, they called me back this morning wanting me to com in Thursday for an interview. Well, I'm not going Thursday, but maybe next Monday. Interviews are fun, no?

Oh, and I'm addicted to something I've never really tried before: RSS Feeds

It's great, I downloaded the sage extension for firefox, and now I can check slashdot, Fark, and all kinds of pages with a one or two simple clicks. :) Much fun

Of weekends and Phone interviews and cancelled games

Well, the weekend is coming to a screeching halt, and what do I have to show for it? What good have I done humanity with my presence on this globe?

And I couldn't be happier :)

As for the upcoming week... I've got a phone interview tomorrow about a tech position in Ft. Smith. Could be a good job, but it would be really tough having to move right now, with school fixing to start and all. But, it never hurts to interview.

I really need to get over to the financial aid office and get some forms filled in. On my concurrent to-do list, lol.

Oh, I'm sad. There was a really cool Stargate SG-1 game going to come out in a few months, but it looks like it's being scrapped, at least for now. Oh, well, gives me more time to play my other games, I guess. Hopefully, someone else will get ahold of the code and finish it. At least, I hope.

Other than that, same old boring stuff. But, here's a cute picture of our favorite little kitten playing dead. She was sleeping, and when I picked her up, she just laid there motionless. Quite funny.

Have a good week, ya'll

Tired of the Headaches, Tired of the Crap, and most of all, tired of worrying...

I've been worrying so bad lately about job situations, time, school, living situation, etc.
And I'm sick of it.

And it took a very dear to my heart co-worker to slap me in the face with the frozen tuna of reality for me to see the very honest truth. "It doesn't matter." And you know what, after munching on it for a few minutes, she's right.

I've been worried about my job. Well, jobs are temporary. And at least I have one. When you start worrying about it no longer being there, you manage to sap all your joy away. Managers change, positions are added and subtracted. People are hired, replaced, and let go. That's just how the world turns. Why let it suck all your happiness away? God gave me this job when I needed it to be able to get married and provide for my wife. And when the time comes that God is ready to move me to the next stage in my life, he'll provide opportunities there, too. Besides, when I dream of what I'm supposed to do with my life, I never see myself chained to a cubicle and a computer. So why then do I feel the compulsion to push myself further into the business world?

I have no doubt in my mind that God has a definate plan for me. All I have to do is look into the eyes of my beautiful wife, the most wonderful compainion I could ever ask for, to see and know that his course for me is full of wonders I can't even imagine. So, why do I fear that if I don't drive myself crazy with worry, I'm not doing something right? It's kindof like smothering yourself to death with a pillow when you have to power to lift your head up at any time. But instead, you fight and fight because you think the only way to get to air is to force yourself all the way through the pillow, which just serves to smother you more.

My job situation will improve. School will be great, and all of AJ and I's needs will be met.
And that makes me happy :)
