Personal Digest Saturday: January 21 – January 27

Life news this week: 
  • Saturday I had Drink and Draw! I scurried like a bunny to get everything I needed to do done before heading out, and then the night was pretty nice. I got to see Victor there and receive some more birthday presents, and I got to see Joy and Eric and some others. I drew a webcomic and some fan art.
  • Sunday I got up and started two fights on my phone before I got out of bed, and later finished one of them. (The other person didn't even try to come back at me after that.) Then I did some karaoke, practiced ukulele, and spent a bunch of the day trying to get a good recording of a song that was really hard for me. I goofed off a lot except for submitting a couple job applications and doing laundry. And I drew a new piece of fan art on a whim.
  • Monday I had a phone interview for a position that sounded pretty good. After it was over, I went to the office and things really started happening. I worked on a report and some binding stuff, and my mom picked me up to help me get my stuff home since we are closing down the office. We hung out and chatted and I helped her with roommate stuff. (She's looking for someone to rent her spare bedroom.)
  • Tuesday the remaining four members of the Tampa office went out for a last lunch together. We ate at Gino's and they tried to talk me into drinking wine but I did not do it. Then I boxed some things up and did more report stuff afterwards. Then I went grocery shopping, had some dinner, and called my agent. Michelle and I had a little chat and she said she wants to see a couple of the books I talked about so I guess I gotta get them ready. (I'm a writer sometimes, who'da thunk?)
  • Wednesday I had to go to the office early to help really get the gears turning for closing down. The corporate secretary from California was there and she is really amazing at getting things done fast! We got so much packed up or thrown out. Then I met Jeaux at Panera and we had some good food and watched Crazyhead on Netflix. We completed the series. Then I called my mom and we chatted a little while I drew.
  • Thursday was the last full day in the office. My last coffee, my last task on the work computer, my last bike trip to the good old building. Sigh. I didn't help with the tasks very much because I was still trying to do clerical stuff for Jerry! But I did help with a few things. It was a weird and sad day. My mom came to my house after and picked up some renter applications, and after she left I drew webcomics and talked to Victor on the phone.
  • Friday I biked to my boss's temporary office space for the first time. It's nice, but it's a closet! I helped unpack some supplies and chatted with the computer guy who was trying to get the Internet working. And I got to eat a donut. :] After I helped with that a while, I went back to the old office and helped finish up packing and tossing stuff, and it took way longer than I expected! I also changed the business's address. And I got to take my computer home, plus a bunch of supplies nobody wanted! My boss drove me home so I could get it in my place. I had a bunch of boxes and computer stuff clogging up the living room but it's okay. I finished my comics and went to bed.
    Reading progress:

      Wearing the visor Victor made me. I have suddenly become the coolest person in the world.
      Eric wearing my visor. With wine. Wine glasses? HAW HAW!

      Look at all our junk.
      Ready to go. . . .
      What a shambles.
