New Leaf?

Wow, I didn't realise it's been so long since I last blogged. What can I say, I was very traumatised. But I'm at lunch now, so I don't see how anyone could complain.

Since I'm not on my laptop, I don't really remember the details of what happened since I last blogged. On Thursday my mum's cousin came to visit. I had an interview over at Hound for a long-term temp assignment earlier that day. Can't remember anything else from that day. Friday I had a half-day at.. hmmmm. Hound Outerpassive Print. 9am-1pm since I was just being trained for the receptionist (3rd floor). I then went to AT&T afterwards and switched over so I could finally use my New Zealand mobile phone (yay!). Of course, my mum got an even nicer version.. for free. Feh. I spent the rest of the day with my aunt.

Saturday my mum and I headed over to San Diego. Or so we thought. The place we were staying at was actually in Ramona, which is around an hour drive from SD. After we checked in and whatnot, we headed over to Coronado and spent some time there. It was really nice. And then we just chilled back at the room. Sunday we went to La Jolla and Del Mar on the way back home. La Jolla was really nice. When I went there with Karen, it was getting late so we didn't really look at the beach or anything. But this time, bright and sunny, so it was a good experience. And I saw baby squirrels! ^^

Monday I temped again at Hound Outerpassive Print (HOP) as the receptionist. But starting Tuesday I was assigned to shadow this guy who is leaving this Friday and "absorb" his knowledge. So I did that all week. There were times when we were busy and had work to do, but there were a lot more times when we did nothing. I hate doing nothing at work. Meh. And the commute is seriously getting to me. Sigh. But on Friday I finally watched Death at a Funeral. I am so behind on my Netflix watching. But I had broken my own rule and hyped it up in my head, so (of course) I was disappointed. It just wasn't as funny as I expected to be. But it had its hilarious moments and it was a good movie overall.

Friday was actually a very eventful day in that I was uber-inspired in the morning after having an inspirational conversation with another temp here.. and then I crashed and burned into a quarter-life crisis (my second or third one I think) a couple of hours later. It was quite depressing. I'm still feeling it, but I'm trying to suppress everything so I can become numb again. I seriously don't know what to do with myself, where I should go, or how I should get there. SIGH.

Saturday I went to Manhatten Beach with Judy, Daniel, and Annabel for the day. Lots of fun! I even got sunburned--I was so proud of myself ^^ Afterwards Judy and I went to go see Sex and the City. It was better than I expected! I liked :D Yesterday was church. I had a celebrity sighting there! I saw SUNG KANG! At first I thought I was hallucinating, but I checked repeatedly and yes, it was him. I didn't say anything to him since it's church and I figured it should be the one place where he shouldn't have to worry about such things, but I'm going to keep my eyes open from now on to see if he's a regular. I ♥ him! After church, I met up with Gardy and Keri for lunch and a photo shoot. We went to Pasadena City Hall and Caltech. But since it was so hot, we weren't very productive. Even after our Jamba Juice stop (I got my beloved Orange Dream Machine!) and, for me, a Coffee Bean stop (I love their Banana Caramel!), we were still very sluggish.

And now I'm back here. Although I felt better about my crisis after talking to Judy and Daniel on Saturday, it's still a large looming raincloud. Stormcloud? Tsunami? Some large disastrous thing that no one wants. But I'll probably be here at HOP for a while, so I'm going to go back into denial-mode for the time being since that's a lot easier than dealing with the issue. Issues. Many issues.
