A bit of Monday Rambling
If you haven't finished your shopping don't worry. You have five--sort of days left.
I am on my school break until January 3. Today, I'm catching up with an old friend. Then I'm going shopping for a few last minute things.
I rewrote the short story that came back with a note to rewrite. It should be in the hands of the magazine. I had three readers read it AFTER I had rewritten it to tell me where it needed help. I liken this to cleaning my house before my housekeeper comes to clean it. (No I don't have a housekeeper. It's on my wish list.) I didn't want them to weed through what I knew was wrong, so I cleaned it first.
The magazine may not publish the short, but rewriting is well...good practice, right? Plus, I've never had an editor to tell me to rewrite. No matter what, I appreciate the note of interest.
January 3, 2011
I will begin my social worker job January 3. I left my IT office Friday nearly empty of me. I will continue to train my replacement when needed. But, she's in good shape. So onward.
Friday, I was soooo sad. This is what I will miss about my IT job:
1. Seeing and playing with new technology.
2. Geek talk.
3. Being the expert.
4. Being called the “Tech Goddess”.
5. My two buddies of whom I’ve worked with longer than anyone…ever...who seem like family!
6. Seeing blank looks when I talk over people’s heads. Is that so wrong?
7. A technology conference at wonderful resort conference in March.
Well I've got to hit the road. I hope this isn't filled with errors, but I'm in a hurry.
Have a great Monday.
