So I FINALLY started working!!!!!
So far it's going well. I'm still a bit intimidated as I have boatloads to learn about TSS-ing and Autism. There are ongoing trainings, so I suppose I'll just have to absorb the information in a more timely manner. Today is my first day without supervision so we'll see how it goes.

I went to Animal Friends to see if I could still volunteer without having to go through the orientation process again, it turns out that I can so... YAY!
Hopefully this will cut my summer boredom streak short.
It's kitten season again so they'll definitely need lots of help this time of year.
I'm currently reading Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert and there are SO many passages and phrases in this book that when I'm reading I think "YES!!!"
The latest of which is a quote from the former Catholic nun at the Ashram in India
"Guilt's just your ego's way of tricking you into thinking that you're making moral progress.
Don't fall for it, my dear."

Oh What a Day is Today

I am one very very sad panda as my camera is no longer functioning. This means there are no pictures from the phenomenal Ingrid Michaelson concert at ArtsFest last night. I missed the Matt Morris (not Morrison as I originally posted) show, but Ingrid made up for it ten-fold. She was very funny interacting with the audience.
Specifically a cute little 4 year old named Jacqueline who was sporting spray-on pink hair. She did a rendition of "Poker Face" by Lady Gaga and "Toxic" by Brittany Spears. (There were accompanying dance moves...awesomeness)
The band seemed like a very tight knit group of people, two of them were actually engaged to be married in a few weeks. So the concert was a great time and I can't wait to see her perform again (she had to censor herself onstage because it was a "family show" so I'm looking forward to Ingrid Michaelson: Uncensored and swearing like a sailor)
Afterward we went to Peters Pub for a drink, and then on my way home I ran into (not over) the neighborhood calico who high-fived me. Just darling.
Today I'm planning to go back to ArtsFest to see the exhibits, and possibly pick up a piece to decorate my sparse-looking bedroom walls. Later on we're going to SingSing, a dueling pianos bar, which is always a hilarious time.

Hardly Workin' Part Deux

Son of a NUTCRACKER!!!!
Another week of work postponed.
However, I do have a treatment plan to review in order to make myself somewhat useful.
Also, Three Rivers Arts Festival is this week, so maybe I'll just hang out among the vendors and soak in all the creativity.
Last year I saw The Wailers (as in Bob Marley and...) at Artsfest and this Thursday Matt Morrison will be performing followed by Ingrid Michaelson so I'm really excited for that. Matt Morrison was the guy who did the Hallelujah duet with Justin Timberlake for the concert for Haiti. Very pretty man with a very pretty voice <3
Download it. Listen to it. Love it.

Just got my work schedule!
Starting next week I may contribute to society like a normal person.
In about 7 months I may be able to afford a new camera with which to post photos on this pretty little blog.
Gotta love "non-traditional" hours
