It is wicked hot here in Boston. Tonight it's supposed to thunderstorm and break the heat. I CAN'T WAIT. My boss as been on vacation all this week, and he's basically going to be on vacation for another two weeks. This basically means that I have a lot of work and my work-life is kind of a hell right now. I think I'm doing a good job, but it's just so busy and I'm still fairly new. I just hope I can prove that I am hard-working and can step up to the plate and be effective when needed. This will be interesting too, because the company just got bought by a global digital company. The most important things about this are: I got a raise, and the office will be moving from Providence to Watertown in July. YAY. My commute will be reduced from one hour+ to 10 minutes. I guess I'm growing to accept the fact that a TEENY part of me is turning into a corporate dbag. Hopefully it won't be forever.
I also found out that my work computer has Photoshop 6.0! Hey, it's better than nothing, and it only crashes about once every couple of days. I regularly spend a lot of time posting on this message board (sort of) local to Boston called lemmingtrail. I have met some awesome people through it, and it makes me lol regularly. I started a post called Let Me Photoshop Your Face and I've been making Photoshop portraits of other b.lt users. I like it because it's keeping me in practice with this, and I've never really done anyone else's portrait. This project is ongoing and the rest of the portraits I've done so far can be found in my b.lt portraits photo album.
Also, I want THIS. The ad campaign is working and I WANT ONE SO BAD. Maybe next month. It is very expensive but I want to take nice pictures. I want to put them on the internet and document stuff that way. And maybe I'll get motivated to take pictures of my knitting in a regular basis, and be more excited about my presence on the internet overall. IWANTONENOW.
I have been knitting a lot, but not in the past week or so, because it's been so fucking hot. I don't think I will buy the air conditioner, because the heat is supposed to break tonight. It should be back in the 70's by the weekend, and then it will be winter.
