Tonight, various things. Mi comprensión oral de español mejora por mi trabajo, cual sea buena. My oral comprehension of Spanish is improving due to my job, which is good. Especially since they hired me for my Spanish skills. It's been a bit rough, as i've not had regular telephone practice with my Spanish since 1985.
I'm about ready to pick up on the cycle of poems i started in November. For some reason, only now do i feel ready to carry on with the project, which will occur over in seain_scribbles
, the community i set up for my writing. I wonder if i should move my personal essays over there. Likely, i will cross-post them, as i have more readership here, and not everyone wants to be part of helping me edit my writing. I shall make some new tags in this journal to better group personal essays and poems.
I've come to realise that my personal essays, some of which are properly vignettes, are really some of my strongest writing. I find that kind of odd, as i'm not one to talk about myself, which some of my friends are discovering as they're being interviewed for my Level 2 Clearance. One commented after her interview that she feels she knows me well, but doesn't really know about me. That did not surprise me, as that's rather how i am in general. I'm really rather introverted and shy, despite the face i present to the world.
Not that i never talk about my homosexuality, spirituality, kinks, and what, i just don't do it often, nor to a very large audience. One friend was shocked at first that i'd remade acquaintance with a charming man with whom we'd both gone to HS on a kink site. Her shock turned to pensiveness, leading her to comment as to whether all of us from the first couple of classes of that school had turned out queer and/or kinky. I posited all but one person, quite maybe...hmm...make that two people on further consideration.
I'm falling into the rhythm of the new job and its wack schedule. I'm enjoying it, and like my coworkers, though one of them knows not what to make of me, though i'm guessing that'll change as we work together more. Either that, or we'll maintain our professional relationship and never gel socially, which is cool. One cannot be social with everyone, though one can be pleasant with [most] everyone. I've also come to learn that i must be in bed not later than 22 if i want to be rested, functional, and focused for work. Lack of sleep makes me highly unfocussed.
The cats are doing well. Bunbun's been a bit skittish of late, but he goes through periods of that. I said hi to him earlier when i went up to get the cat bowls to wash so i could feed them, and he shot off like i was a threat. *shrug* He's cute, and cuddly when he wants. Very rabbitlike. :)
Right now i'm tired, a bit antsy, and wanting social interaction. So, sleep, a walk, and a conversation, though likely not in that order, are what i want right now. Likely i'll read a bit, fall asleep, get up in the wee hours, brush my teeth and go to bed. Guess i'll see. Maybe i'll be all grown-up and brush my teeth and go to bed to read. Stranger things have happened.
Oh! I've tried a couple of the wines i received for helping bhanfhlaith
move. Very nice so far, the ones i've had. Thank you for them. I've not yet opened the gallon of homemade mead. I look forward to that once the weather cools a bit, toward Samhain or so.
Oh, and a random tidbit: I was surprised to learn that my street address is unique in the US.
Peace unto you, my friend.
