coming home today

today i'm flying home. i love flying. it's so much fun for me. i especially love the liftoff and the touchdown. i should probably take on more risky hobbies. a friend of mine said that if you are caught in a weird air pocket mid-flight, created by other planes passing by really fast and taking up airspace, your plane can drop out of the sky for 3-4 seconds. well, not out of the sky, but off of it's scheduled track for a moment. she said it feels like minutes even though it's just a few seconds. has that ever happened to you? i think i'd like to avoid that!

this week is pretty exciting. it's march break for my boyfriend, who is a teacher, and i start my NEW JOB on wednesday! i am really looking forward to it. i have the right combination of anticipation and nerves. i've been out of work/working part-time at the law office for so long that i forget what it's like to have a regular routine. i LOVE routines. but some things are going to have to change of course. i've already started to think about it. i start pretty early, at 8:00am, and have a 1/2 hour commute, so i can't workout in the morning anymore unless i go to bed really early which will never happen, so i'm going to have to schedule exercise for after work. i think there is a gym in my office - that would be convenient!

i'm also going to have to post a) in the evenings or b) pre-plan my posts the night before which probably won't happen. and i'm going to have to cut down on blog reading since i'll only be doing it in the evenings. i've already cut a bunch of blogs out of my google reader. not any personal blogs, mostly food blogs i found were a chore to read. the really good food blogs (kath eats, eat live run, carrots n' cake) are absolutely amazing and i can't give those up. love them!

Ahha - I figured out how to post in advance. I love it because some days I'm full of posts and others I'm struggling to find something to say. I love it. And secondly, it's awesome that you begin your new job soon. I have a second interview for my DREAM JOB on Thur and if I get it, I'll be more nervous than excited because it's definately a few rungs up the ladder from my current experience. Sink or swim - story of my life. Good luck with yours! You'll have to tell us all about it. I'm excited to hear!

That's great news about the new job. Even with all the little changes you'll be making to your schedule, I bet you are really looking forward to some full-time work!

I haven't mastered posting in advance, heck...I have trouble posting in the present so if you find the trick, let me in on the secret!
