wook77: (Diet Coke)
I haven't posted lately because honestly? The only thing going on in my life is work (and not very exciting work at that).

I had my first paid speaking gig on "Employee Engagement: Inspiring Employees to be Well". It's just mindboggling that I get paid to tell people that if they talk to their employees, their employees will talk back.

I've finally finished my [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti fic. It's going to require copious amounts of beta'ing but it's finished. Deamus with a side of Neville/Susan, Dennis/Parvati, Harry/Ginny and misc other characters.

I've also finished both of my [livejournal.com profile] help_nz fics. Woohoo!

I've a prompt for [livejournal.com profile] help_japan which I'm looking forward to writing! I'm claiming my [livejournal.com profile] trekreversebang prompt tomorrow and I have one that I really really want as I've sort of already started writing it :/ Way to put the cart before the horse, wook, you idiot.

Tomorrow shall be spent stitching Star Trek characters.

I think I might have a house lined up for next year. It'll be a rental but, still, I'm finally getting my own place and moving out of my mother and sister's house. I'm stuck until next year as my sister is in school and has no income so they need me to help pay the mortgage. The house is fairly tiny (about 800 sq feet) but it has a nice sized back yard. I worked out the budget for the house and it looks like I can afford it with a little left over, even with quitting Fry's.

Those who know me will be shocked by the following: I have cut my Diet Coke intake down from about two 2-liters a day to 3 cans a day. This is huge. I haven't been getting caffeine headaches with that cutback but I'm going to go for another week before I cut it down to one can a day.

My manager at Fry's was finally able to cut my schedule down to 3 shifts a week. In a few weeks, I'll be back to two shifts a week. That's still more than enough money to afford trips and pay off medical bills so I'm good to go with that sort of schedule.
