Timing is Everything
A week ago I wanted to at least give a quick update of what I’ve been up to, but because of what I was up to I couldn’t find the time to tell you (my dear readers) what that was. So now, in a very brief lull between several of my current activities I’ll attempt to tell you what they are, were, and will be.
What I’ve recently done:
- Finished a beta website for a freelance project
- Completed my fourth full-time week working at The Summit Hut
- Wrote an estimate/project brief for a different freelance project
- Started reading Neal Stephenson’s Quicksilver
- Imported over 180 CD’s into the new iTunes for Windows. The best music organizer/player in my opinion. And yes, it makes me want to have an iPod
What I’m currently doing:
- Importing all our classical music CD’s into iTunes
- Studying for my (hopefully) final test for my College Algebra class. (Since I’m carrying an “A” in the class I won’t have to take the final unless I somehow completely botch the final test on Thursday)
- Hoping to sneak in a hike in the Rincon Mountains on Thursday morning.
- Making a rather large list of equipment and clothing that I would love to have from work. (It’s the one downside I’ve found so far with the job: the more I learn about the products we sell, the more I want for myself.)
- Enjoying the mild weather. Shorts and long-sleave shirts, light jacket if I venture out of the house before 9:00am.
What I plan and/or hope to do soon:
- Finish both of my freelance projects ahead of schedule
- Finish Quicksilver and start reading Children of the Mind with Jenny
- Hike in the Grand Canyon between Christmas and New Years. (Hopefully seeing snow on the rim)
- Start watching the 10 “The Joy of Science” DVD’s that I purchased from The Teaching Co. — I hope they turn out to be a good primer for me since I’m thinking of pursuing a science degree but I feel slightly less than prepared with my almost 10 year old Bellevue High School education
- Start getting myself into shape to climb again. A perk of my job is free membership to the climbing gym here in Tucson, but outdoors is where I really want to go. (1500+ climbs on Mt. Lemmon)
- And lots more…
Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving!
