Moving to WordPress
I think I have finally decided to do it... move my blog off of here. I am still working on what the site has and doesn't have, but I think I can live with the way it is now. I have been finding anytime I go to write a post, I want to add it to my new blog.

I hope you enjoy it... you can find it here

No More Snow!!
Well yesterday I decided to go out and get some rollerblades, so I would have some when it was nice enough to do it outside. I tried them on, and did a bit in our garage last night (we have a 2.5 garage, with only one car in it at that time). Suprisingly I was actually pretty good, so I went out on the driveway. It was a little wet, but the snow had melted.

Last night before I went to bed, I checked the weather. It was suppose to be rainy and crappy today. When I rolled over this morning it was sunny, I was so excited. That was until I looked out the window and everything was white again, some of it managed to melt yesterday evening. I guess I will just have to wait until tomorrow.

my dad and I had a long talk the other night about figuring what I want to do with the rest of my life. I have yet to sit down and figure that out, but with the nice weather, I decided that I wanted to learn how to rollerblade this summer. Friday night, my brother and I went on a hunt for cheap blades, but I couldn't find any that fit me. Later that night, I found a pair of cheap ones, and I was going to go get them today, and start learning to rollerblade. Well this plan has been spoiled, as I woke up this morning and everything was white again, and it doesn't look like it will be stopping any time soon.

I am still thinking of going to get some this weekend, but I will have to hold off on learning till probably next weekend, when the snow melts away (again)

I have been looking into WordPress over the last couple of days. Some of the blogs that I have read use WordPress. I wasn't 100% at the time what it was, I'm sure it should have been obvious, but it wasn't.

WordPress essentially is your own blog posted on your own site, anywhere you want. Well almost anywhere, you have to have access to a database, and your site has to host php pages. My current personal website has both of those, so I decided to try ito out overthere. I am still playing with it and trying to decide if I really want to move it or not. I like the looks of it, but I don't know what type of limitation I have on the size of my blog yet. If I do decide to moe my blog, again, I will just setup this page to jump directly to it. Maybe I wil add a link to it when I am happy with the way it is working, and get opinions on it. Personally with WordPress, I feel like I have more control over how things are working with it, not that it is much different than logging into this site here and adding posts.

Can you tell I don't want to work today? I am essentially 45 minutes early for work today, so I thought adding a post would be a good way to waste that time.

Bored at work...
Well let me tell you, a day at work when you can't do your job, is really boring. It's not that I can't do my job, it's more that my boss told me to stop testing this build. Hmm, I test software, that's what I do. So here I am not testing software. It wouldn't be so bad if I didn't have to track my hours, because I also can't add anymore hours at the current state of the project. That means that eventhough I did a bit of testing of it this morning, I can't track that. I have to come up with something else that I worked on today, and extend it to cover the hours I used to work on the project. Wow, no wonder things aren't efficient around here.

Well I told myself that I wasn't going to complain about work, at least not about the projects and the processes that we do, so that's all the complaining that you are going to get. Oh that an it is quite warm in my office today, which makes me wonder if it is this warm outside. We really should take tomorrow off and sit outside. Well there is no point to us being here, now is there?

I'm done
I can no longer continue this. I can no longer lie to myself and my family. It hurts too much to lie for you. I refuse to lie for you anymore. The lying stops NOW!



It feels like it has been forever since my last real post on here. I don't really call updating my Johnny Depp count an update, although I ended up watching two movies in the same weekend.

There have been a few changes in my life, and I feel that I also need to make some changes. Right now, my job is still bugging me. I really am starting to enjoy it for the most part, except my manager. All of my ideas are just dismissed, but when then come from one of the other girls they aren't. At first I was going to consider waiting until September to see what was going on in part of my life before I made any major decisions, but there is no need to wait anymore. The decisions have been made, and I'm not going anywhere. My mom has mentioned that a company in the city I went to school is looking for QC people. Too bad they are looking for Unix knowledge as well. I think I am still going to apply to it, as it won't hurt. The sooner I can find another job, the sooner I can move out on my own, and really start my life. Since most of the other people who are/were in my life, have also decided to start their life, I feel that it is my time as well.

Not that I really want to move back to the city where I went to school, for some reason I don't really like the city. Oh well. I guess if I find a job there, then I will just have to move there. At least the rent is cheaper there than the city that I really want to live in.

Of course this is all probably not going to happen until after my sugery. Both of my parents think that I should have it, so we are going to talk to my aunt today who had it to find out if she had the same thing that I did and if she recommends it.

Update: my aunt's surgery went well, but since her hernia was so bad, they couldn't do a routine surgery on her. My mother thinks it would be a good idea for me to get mine fixed now, so I don't have to go through what my aunt did. I still don't know how I feel about it. Guess I will just have to go talk to my doctor about it, then my parents some more, since there is noone else to talk to about it.
