Well hi there. Long time no blog, or as my last post said BOG. Whatever. I had planned on posting about the trip and about the Lost finale but I was so jet lagged over the weekend that I wasn't forming sentences and didn't want to subject any of you to that. On second thought, it might have made more sense the crap I usually post. Anyhoo, I'm off tomorrow and will present a cavalcade of posts. Today was the start of my internship and my first official day as a graphic designer. I wasn't too nervous since I knew the people there but it was still weird since I'm the new person and they're all familiar and have jokes and stuff. It's a pretty loosy-goosy environment, which is nice since my last experience in the big corporate machine did not include the word "fun." In this job, after our meeting, we played Jeopardy for 15 minutes with my boss acting as Alex Trebeck. I did find out that I am going to have to learn a lot of new web-based programs if I want to make something of myself in this business, which I'm not too keen on. I know web stuff is "the future" but I just don't really like it. They are pretty set on shoving it all down my throat anyway. Oh well. Not to seem so nonchalant about it since I'm very fortunate to have this experience, but while we were out of town, I kept thinking abuot how normally I would be dreading going back to work and that this time I didn't really have anything to dread since it's all new. I kept thinking about what job I would want to have that would make me NOT sad to leave a place like Hawaii and to my surprise (not really), I kept coming back to cakes. Jesus, me and these cakes. I can't get it out of my skin, you know? I'm doing some mini-cakes this week to get back in the swing so maybe that's all I need to do to get it out of my system. We'll see.
