Gah! I may have picked the wrong month to do NaBloPoMo. This new job is going to be hell. People I have no respect for telling me what to do, senseless nit-picking, repetitive “coordination,” and long hours of… meetings! Yep, today was another one of those meeting days. I barely had time to get lunch, and when I did, I couldn’t eat it. But at least I’m doing something. Am I making a difference in the defense of my nation? Hell, no. I’m just coordinating massive high-level briefings that have to be pre-briefed to everyone and their dogs, and killing a lot of trees in the process.
I kind of knew what I was getting into when I came back to headquarters. I just have to remember to maintain my calm (and keep my mouth shut) when something stupid occurs (which is about 4 times an hour).
And, my internet access is severely limited. I don’t have access to WordPress.com, LiveJournal, or even G-mail. (I can get to Google, and I was able to call up Television Without Pity, but not the message boards.) I haven’t checked to see if I can access my own website. (Not that there’s anything there.)
The downside to this is I won’t have a lot of time for “social networking.” Since I work on a computer all day (when I’m not going to meetings), I’m not all that enthused to get on it when I get home. But I’ll try to stay in touch. 😉
