Mood: full.
Ate waaaaaay too much at lunch. I usually have a salad with a rice cake for dessert. Today I had a huge cheese sandwich, salad with too much dressing on it, and an enormous cookie. I'm talking the size of my hand with fingers spread. Too much food. I knew I should have only had half of that cookie...

The countdown till Friday begins! From the beginning this place has been a trial, I'll be so happy when it's over. I can't express how much I hate coming into this stuffy office everyday seeing the same awful people day after day. The real challenge for me is to keep my mouth shut about how happy I am to move on. I just want to keep the nasty comments to myself if possible. As much as I hate this place, I feel like I've conducted myself in a really professional manner and I don't want to jinx that by telling people what I really think. What good would that do? At this point not a hell of a lot.

In related news, the girl Lea I used to hang out with outside of work is in the office today for the first time in weeks. She and I had a falling out a couple of weeks ago, which is ridiculous because it is so rare that I have a falling out with anyone. What happened with her is that she would make plans with me then blow me off the day we were supposed to hangout. Her worst offense was the last when she told me she had a free pass for me to go to her gym but then lost the pass and went to the gym anyway by herself. That girl hadn't seen the inside of a gym in months. I decided then it was over and deleted her from my hotmail messenger. She must have gotten the point because we haven't spoke since. Whatever. I don't need that kind of "friendship".

Subject:food, food, and more food
Time:9:45 am.
Mood: annoyed.
It's amazing how filled this office is with food, specifically junk food. Everywhere I turn, there are new cookies and cakes and chocolates and chips and candy. It's disgusting. And it's all here constantly, I get no break from it. The temptation is not so bad in the morning, it's in the afternoon when I want to leave work and I still have 2 hours to go. I'm so bored, all I want to do is something other than work and that's when I end up eating the junk. I have to have better will power. If I've been able to go 8 years without a bite of beef and pork, I can go without eating all this junk. I don't want to gain weight, I don't want to get cavities, I don't want to think negatively about food. I need to manage this better some how.

Subject:what? I hate poetry!
Time:8:35 pm.

I am heroic couplets; most precise
And fond of order. Planned and structured. Nice.
I know, of course, just what I want; I know,
As well, what I will do to make it so.
This doesn't mean that I attempt to shun
Excitement, entertainment, pleasure, fun;
But they must keep their place, like all the rest;
They might be good, but ordered life is best.
What Poetry Form Are You?

Subject:I just realized...
Time:7:41 pm.
Mood: discontent.
This is the third meal I've eaten in front of a computer today. There has to be something seriously wrong with that. And maybe that's why I'm so hungry all the time when I'm sitting in front of it. I've become a Pavlovian graphic designer.

In other news, I still hate my job. I haven't felt this unhappy & friendless since about 4th grade when I first moved to Blackstone. At least when you're shipped off to college life is different & exciting. You're always meeting new people & doing new things. Here it's the same old sorry cast of assholes day after day. It's pathetic. I sent 2 resumes for 2 different positions to Yoga Journal these past 2 weeks. Next, one off to Chronicle for a position I have no hope in getting. At least I'm trying, right?

Subject:the 2nd best grilled cheese sandwich ever
Time:1:17 pm.
Mood: satisfied.
And that's only because I had to walk in the rain 10 minutes with it back to the office. It was:

Buttery grilled sliced sourdough bread
Provalone cheese

Amazing. It comes in second to the room service grill cheese I had after a night out with Shambhala friend Megan in San Francisco last October. That one had tastiness, freshness, & good company in its favor. This one just had tastiness.

Well, we're finally settled into our new apartment. It's been a busy, busy week to say the least - unpacking, spending hundreds at Ikea, buying a car, buying a bed, painting, etc. It's finally settling down leading to a whole slew of other things to keep me busy - finding a job, finding a gym, finding friends.

God, my finances are a wreck. I woke up this morning to discover I bounced our first insurance payment check. What a nightmare. David gave me a very Phoebe like piece of advice - it's not the end of the world, just a bounced check.

Subject:it's official!
Time:3:55 pm.
Mood: excited.
David and I found an apartment!!! We spent all last Friday looking for a place & the very last place we looked at we loved. It's about 800-900 square feet, 2 bedrooms, large living room, kitchen, large kitchen with lots of storage space, and a small bathroom. Best of all - we have a window in every room!! I feel so much better about going out there now. That's one more thing that's been decided.

Other than apartment hunting, we had a lovely time in California. We spent as much time as possible by the pool & jacuzzi, an evening in San Francisco with some friends, and test drove a few cars. After much deliberation, I think we've decided on a convertible PT Cruiser. I think the PT looks silly, but the convertible version is just so cute!

Ottavia's here! She came in last night around 6pm (it really should have been 3:30, but she was stuck in Maine for a bit), we rented a car, drove to JP, had pizza, then she drove down to visit our friend Crystal. I could have gone, but I wanted to work today and give them some time alone. She'll be coming back to Boston in a few hours to drop off the rental then have dinner with Dave, Shannon & I for her b-day. Yay!

Time:10:46 am.
Mood: bored.
I'm having a horrible time focusing today. It doesn't help that my work is so boring, but still, I can usually manage to stick with it. Not today. Today I've:
- looked at wedding bands
- apartments in CA
- jobs in CA
and miscellaneous other non-work related activities. I hate to say it, but I've checked out.

In other news, Ottavia is coming for a visit next week. It will be great to see her & to take time off of work to be with her. She's coming on Tueday and staying till Sunday. Then the week after, I leave for CA with David to look at apartments. We'll be staying at this funky little hotel for 5 days. I can't wait! I think we'll have an amazing time.

Time:10:26 am.
Mood: nauseated.
Not feeling too well today. Last night I went out with the work ladies for a few drinks. It was a great time - I met a Boston terrier who belongs to one of the editors, had a couple drinks & dinner at Flash's, & then had a drink at another girl's place in the South End. The understatement of the century - her place is gorgeous. I think the hangover came from the cosmo & cigarette. Not pleasant.

Today, we get out early then I go home to work. I have 2 ads in the works & 2 of my old brochures to revise for my Type class. Speaking of which, I think that class is going to be great for creating my portfolio before I leave for CA. Saturday I have Dreamweaver in the am then David is giving me a surprise for my b-day. It's so exciting! He said we will be busy until 3 on Sunday. I wonder what we'll do.

Subject:hypocrite government
Time:2:31 pm.
Why is it not ok to see people make love or swear but it's perfectly ok to show the body of a dead terrorist on TV? I don't want to see that! Why should I be accosted by images of a dead body on CNN while I'm trying to exercise at the gym? It's just not right. I have nightmares from that shit, neve rmind what that does to kids. It's not right.

A HUGE congrats to Pho, the new recipient of the PEN book award! Last night, a ceremony was held in honor of the 4 award recipients, all of whom presented their work to a packed room at Simmons College. Pho was by far the best - poised, charming, and incredibly charismatic. I feel blessed and honored to call her a close friend.

Well done, Pho!
