^How is the new job so far?

My hand is much better, not quite 100% but it's getting there (probably). I was quite worried that I'd torn a tendon or something because I couldn't really move one of my fingers much (and that sort of thing requires surgery). But after 7 weeks of intense staring and endlessly repeating pleasedon'tbetornpleasedon'tbetorn it finally started to get better. So what happened was I sort of punched the ground (was holding a bag and landed on my knuckles) and injured pretty much all of my fingers except my thumb. The good news is that I've now had 11 weeks (and counting) of training in using a computer mouse with my left hand (take that carpal tunnel syndrome which I don't yet have!!).

So lessons learned are:
a) I'm getting old: falling over can now be dangerous and cause serious injuries (avoid falling!!).
b) switch hands! It doesn't take that long to get used to.

^ Glad to hear you're doing better.

And my job is going alright. I have to admit at one point I was starting to think I made the wrong decision, but I'm starting to get the hang of everything. Yesterday they me helping the new(er) with his computer builds while I still worked my tickets... and somehow I still manage to get stuff done. Not really sure I'm supposed to be proud or afraid. :err:

^Good to hear :D Are you getting any vacation this summer?
I feel alright, today is a good day to get stuff done. I'm eager to finish Lightroom today and get started with learning Photoshop.

^I've been wanting to really learn how to use Photoshop for a while. I've used it some and know how to do some things but there is lots of things I don't know. Glad to hear that you are doing better! I hope your work get permanent, it's nice not having to worry about those things.

Holy crap it's hot today! I can't wait for this heat wave to end. I'm trying to not get too annoyed.

Ugh I know. The heat is really bad lately. And wildfires in California are going.. wild. They haven't been bad around here yet but I expect they will soon. :?

Actually, me and my girlfriend were off last week :) We got a log cabin in Gatlinburg TN for a few days. The plan was to propose to her there, but I didn't have the engagement ring yet. :argh: I got the ring now, just trying to figure out were to propose. Definitely going to be this month. :help:

And good luck with Lightroom and Photoshop. :D

Oh, I feel tired. Long day at work plus a three hour drive home to visit my parents. :x
