Life feels a little more routine this week. I like that every thing I am doing makes complete sense. It's nice to walk into a new job, and the learning curve, as far as my actual work goes, is close to zero.
There are a few learning moments - How to update the website, how to use Constant Contact, putting all of the "Brads" in the right order. (So many of my media contacts have the first name - Brad.) These things take a little time. But soon, it will feel normal.
As for understanding the art and the history, well, that's another story all together. I have so much to learn, but you have to know, that's what excites me!
I am trying to get back that control in my otherwise chaotic world. The "to do" list is long, but I see an end in sight. For one, my brakes are grinding. When I slide into a red light, my car emits these sounds that remind me of the construction workers on the side of the road drilling into the concrete. Yeah, that can't be good.
Or the BIG one - moving. Oh Lord Have Mercy - I've got to find a home. I have one of two choices: Buy something so fabulous, but remain a little strapped for cash. Or find a cute little fixer-upper and have a little more in my pocket each month. I just can't figure it out. I sort of put my home-hunt on hold for a bit, pending the events at work (literally - BIG festival) and the upkeep on my car. Just too many big ticket items are taking precedent.
Regardless of what lies ahead, I have all of my little ducks in a row, and it feels good.
What new things are causing you to pause and contain?
