Sorry. Sorry...

Oh boy.  Lots have happened.  Lots has changed.

Thanksgiving went by.  Christmas went by.  New Years went by as well.  

Found a job. (Yay, go me.)

But then... here's what follows:

1) I'm not happy with my job.  I don't see any room for growth within the company. 
2) My co-workers are very "cliquey" so it's hard to gauge or engage anything.
3) They watch me like a hawk. I swear they monitor when I go to the restroom or when I step outside for a cigarette break.

I know I shouldn't complain.  But.. it's just really awkward. I'm sociable by nature, but I've turned into a loner within the past month or so.

But, I won't ever make the mistake of quitting before finding another job.  3 months of.. just sitting there. Applying forjobs.  Going into stupid interviews.  Answering the same dumb old questions over and over.

In other news, I finally watched a TED show on David Blaine and how he held his breath for 17 minutes.  This guy is a freaking pimp.


  1. i just watched the whole thing, that`s insane how low he got his resting heart rate. and at the end when he was approaching 17 minutes he`s like "i was just waiting to have a heart attack so they could pull me out".... crazy bastard

  2. !7 minutes? Maybe I shouldn't reply until I watch the bloody thing.
    I don't think that's possible though...
    Ted is cool though there is a mirror I use pretty good for ted talks.

    Watching now

  3. Always good to keep your bases covered if you're thinking of getting a new job.

  4. Being the new guy at a job is tough. What I would do if I were you is make yourself be the laughing stock of some funny thing. You get splashed by a car in the rain and come to work soaking wet, whatever. Them laughing with you brings you closer together with 'em. Trust me.

  5. That's pretty good if he can really do that. Hope work gets better or you can find a better job.

  6. It's always rough being the new guy. I'd stick it out for a while if I was you, but feel free to explore other job options.

  7. Everyone sure David Blane is human?
