broken record It truly is sad when I see my old post pop up in the past words section and I am either doing the exact same thing I did then or I am complaining about the exact same thing. I think my New Years resolution has been "get a new job" for the past 3 years. I was almost successful with that one last year but when I didn't get the job I shut down and complained the rest of the year. Quit your bitchin! Is what I have been told by my friends and that I am not allowed to complain about my job anymore unless I focus on getting a new one. I am trying really hard – I AM!
My horoscope today sounds promising: Some people are just clueless -- how could someone not get how great, talented and wonderful you are? Just think of this as a challenge that will eventually get you somewhere better than your original goal. I really hope this year is my year. I am sick and tired of being treated like a useless ignorant servant. Especially when I am surrounded by people who are doing a job that I have done before and could do 100 times better. (Sorry – I said I was trying. Hopefully that will be the last time I complain about my job.)
Things to look forward to in 2007:
Furniture: I think I have decided on a sofa. It's a Jennifer Leather one with dual recliners in a nice chocolate brown color. I have to visit it one more time before I commit to it. It's called "The Tarintino" if you want to check it out (their website sucks though, it's not on there). I also saw a dinning room table and chairs set at Levitz that I really like. I just need a table for behind the sofa and an accent chair for the living room. Oh and maybe a tree or large plant for the corner.
A Hockey trip: I am gonna make it happen this year ... if not in February then definitely for the fall! "Hockey is LIFE" is a sticker on the special box my young nieces made for me for Christmas. It's really funny because it has a picture of my head on a hockey jersey.
More reading: My 17 year old niece is all hip and reading PostSecret: Extraordinary Confessions from Ordinary Lives by Frank Warren and Running with Scissors by Augusten Burroughs. She lent me Chuck Palahniuk's Invisible Monsters. Do you think I'll be mistaken for a hipster if I read this on the train? (Probably not since I won't be on a Brooklyn bound train right?)
More knitting: I am going to start knitting my 2007 Christmas gifts now. There is no point in waiting till November then being miserable knitting boring scarves and not getting them done in time. And I am really jealous of all the knitting projects Liz has going on ... I just might have to steal a few from her and make myself. But every time I hear from her she has a new project I want to do. I am not sure if I can juggle 20 at one time ... but I'm gonna try.
