Today I started a new job. It's a contractor position, and I can keep it as long as I want. I believe I will enjoy it since it offers flexible hours and other perks that will sustain my evening and weekend production, website and writing projects.
I started training for the new job today. My guide told me he was pleased with how quickly I was picking up on things. I told him how pleased I was that my lobbying for this job paid off. The IT guy who came in to show me around my computer was pleased that I knew how to turn the computer on.
So everyone was pleased.
A pleased state cannot be overestimated. It casts a wonderful, pastel hue over everything.
My ride home took longer than normal as a great many people decided to have a car accident off critical ramps and overpasses off I-95. I got home, quickly ate, and headed out to a brief production meeting.
I'm getting ready to head to Canada tomorrow afternoon for a website production meeting with my friend John Frid - a retired actor who on a dare from me bought a computer a few years ago. I volunteered to do (try to do) some fancy flash stuff on his site and this meeting is partly about that. I may have taken on too much here as Flash is fairly new to me.
We'll see if the "pleased" craze lasts.
