#33 - One Week of Work
Motto: I sat in the theater of Looper with a camera. I looked at myself in the camera and watched myself watching myself watch myself watch Looper.
Life is too awesome - and I’m seriously worried about that.
Things just don’t go this awesomely for extended periods of time. The last time I can remember being so happy for an extended period of time I wound up with a permanently messed-up back despite the fact I did nothing to it. I spent the next year getting out of that funk.
Being this happy, having this much to be happy about, I know it just gives me a long way to fall if something were to happen.
The pessimist in me wrote that portion of the column. He’s now going to go lay down and read A Million Little Pieces by James Frey and weep and wallow in a pit of despair.
Alright this column is getting too weird.
I have worked for one full week now at my new job. My first “Big boy job”. And I must say, I really do feel like a big boy. I live in my own place in the big city. I am making money doing something I actually want to be doing. Just to ere on the side of caution, I won’t say where I work by name - I’ll just say this: it is a technically focused job in the communications industry. I like my boss a lot. I like my coworkers. I have even liked the generic training type stuff I’ve done so far.
I bought “The Avengers”. There was honestly no chance of me NOT buying “The Avengers”. Amazon had (has?) a deal to get the Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital Copy for $20. Oh, and you get the 3D Blu-Ray and a compendium of songs randomly thrown together that have nothing to do with the movie, but who cares about those. Just to recap what I said 29 columns ago: The Avengers was IS awesome. To watch The Avengers I checked out the theater room of my apartment building:
I didn’t know this picture was taken.
Melissa speaks for the both of us… and everyone else that showed up later. I watched Looper with Melissa for $10. It was AWESOME. That’s all I have to say. Just to recap:
I like being an adult.
I like my place.
I like my job.
Things are awesome.
Top 5: Good things to happen for me lately
1 person has asked me if I’ve been working out. Why yes, more than one person, I have been. I have a goal.
- I saw my girlfriend. If you, the reader, had forgotten, she’s quite attractive.
- My apartment complex has AWESOME amenities. Three days ago, I was swimming in a heated pool on the 15th floor of a highrise, overlooking downtown Kansas City, celebrating with a group of great friends. Then there was that Avengers thing…
- Everyone who has seen my place has had an overwhelmingly positive reaction to it. It turned out way better even than I anticipated and I am psyched to call it home for the next year or more.
- I started my career off at what seems like it’s going to be a great place to work, gaining experience doing what I want to do with my life.
