With everything that is going on with me these days, I am having a hard time feeling like I am achieving anything concrete. So, I picked up some yarn from the Farmers' Market in Union Square. I love getting yarn straight from the farmer. It was some great merino wool.
I whipped up a little seaman's cap. Granted, the dye came off on my fingers something awful. But after knitting up and washing out the excess dye, this iss what it looks like.
I am thinking about making some changes to my diet. For the pasts 4 years, I have been an ovo-lacto vegetarian. When I made the decision to give up all meat, I promised myself that if this diet harmed my health in any way I would make some changes. Well, with my new job, I have found that I don't have time to eat during the day. That means I have to get all of my nutrients in basically one meal a day. So, I am thinking that if I add fish to my diet and become a pescetarian, I can get more nutrients in my diet. Not only that, but it will make things a bit easier for dining, as well. And I will be able to enjoy sushi again, and fish & chips while I'm in London.
Right now, I am just thinking about chanign over. Because I am such a dork, I am doing all kinds of research right now to make sure that I am doing the right thing.
I have been trying to keep knitting on a daily basis. With as much craziness in my life right now, I really am depending onmy knitting for some sanity. Not to mention, I have a ton of yarn that is just waiting for inspiration. I am trying to get through my stash. I feel like I am killing 2 birds with one stone. Nothing like multi-tasking!
So, I'm sure there are a lot of questions about what I am doing these days. My days consist of wandering around the City fixing computers for those that can afford to have a technician come to their home. I have seen some AMAZING apartments in the past couple of weeks. Macs, PCs; individual computers, networks; simple fixes, complex problems; homes, offices; and everything in between. Some of the clients that our company has are celebrities, but I have yet to go to any of their homes. They are pretty much secured by the boss. That is quite alright with me, though. I am still learning the ropes and find myself making a few errors in dealing directly with people. I am not used to using computer jargon to distance myself from what I am doing. I have always been the one to make things more easy to understand.
Anyway, there is never a dull moment. Come to think of it, I have hardly had any time to sit still, and have yet had a chance to eat lunch while on the job. On top of that, by carrying around laptops, tools and other "stuff," I am convinced that a gym membership would be wasted on me. I am still getting the hang of everything. But I definitely need to get more sleep these days.
Just when I thought things were going to crash and burn, a miracle comes down from above. I got me a job. Well, yesterday morning, I had an interview, by 8:30AM, I was working for a new company. I am a techie. I am working for a computer consulting company that takes care of the computer needs of people all over the NYC area. It's pretty wild.
I'll talk about it more when I have a few more minutes.
