I am thankful I can still learn. I’m taking a class online at work, which is paid for, about Petrophysics. 16 hours worth of material you can work at your own pace. Sounds boring and disgusting, right? Actually you are wrong … so wrong. It’s actually very interesting. That would be my hand written notes on the right. That’s how much I love it! I kinda miss school …
I am thankful for having such a wonderful team of people to work with at my job. They’re around my age, mostly, so it’s easier to get along not that my last team was hard to get along with. We can joke more and laugh more. It’s more relaxed which I love.
This morning, Tony C. and I went and got knockoff Starbucks at our building and it was nice knowing I have someone who would do that with me. Not feel as lonely. And it was nice that we were able to share some things about our personal lives that’s outside the office so we’re not so much strangers.
Some people on our team went out to lunch at Carabba’s with BossMan today. And got to know them better which was nice. BossMan paid which got us mad because we told him we were going to pay. Tony C. got yelled at for getting up trying to fix that but … what can you do. When BossMan says sit down, you sit down.
I am so very thankful for my job. I know I have it better than a lot of people in the world. I’m not sitting there worried about if I can find a job, what interview is coming up, etc. It might be hard sometimes not having that same routine, being full time with FTK, or seeing some people in my life because they’re all in San Antonio, but as long as they know I’m still there for them and they’re still there for me, I think I’ll be fine. Which leads me to my next Good Thought …
I am thankful for friends who check up on you. I’m not going to lie. I only keep in touch with some people but we only talk once in a blue moon, but it’s nice nonetheless. Especially when it’s them making the initiative. Cuz you know … I hate when I feel like I’m bothering someone. I would talk to everyone if I wasn’t afraid of bothering them. Maybe tell me I’m not bothering you when I talk to you and I promise, I will talk to you forever and ever and ever …
Getting a text from Travis Monday night letting me know the reason he’s M.I.A. from IM-ing or E-mailing is because lack of internet at his new apartment. Then caught up a bit.
Gary called me yesterday while I was at work, left a voice message, called him back after work and we talked for a good while. Always nice to talk to someone even though they’re miles away. Makes me feel like I’m still there.
Getting an IM from Anthony, caught up and found out he has an interview lined up here in Houston in September. Throwing good luck his way.
Had dinner with Mallory after work at Cheddars tonight. (Salad, croissant, broccoli, broccoli and cheese, mashed potatoes, green beans, and a Strawberry Daiquiri. I did not finish at all … neither did Mallory.) She contacted me a few days ago asking if we could hang out. Uh, duh! It was nice to meet up with her and catch up. So much stuff has changed. I’m glad we’re both back in the same city because the hang outs will now commence.
I am thankful I am able to help save lives. Yes, you read that right. Since summer of 2007, I’ve been donating blood. It use to be my whole blood but after half a year of that, I switched to plasmas and platelets. And because of that, I’m able to donate once a week. I haven’t gone in almost a year because I didn’t get to come home as much due to FTK things and then summer came and I was out of the country. Now I’m back and ready to get poked and prodded. I’ve set an appointment for tomorrow morning and I cannot wait! If you’re able to save lives, do it. Do Good, Help Others.
This post accidentally got too long. But it’s never a bad thing when it’s about the good in life.
Think Good Thoughts.
