Another Week

Ok, so I missed another week of updating.

All I can say is — Oh Well. It’s not like I have a huge readership anymore. I remember just a few months ago, I had a lot more people coming to the site to read or say hello. Wonder why there’s been such a change.

Not like it really matters to me, I don’t’ really write for the amusement of others, I write to keep track of my own life and if others find some meaningful insight, so be it.

Summer is a mere two weeks away, and if you look at my Google Calendar, you can see that my summer starts off bright and early at 8am on Monday May 8th with Coffee with Keith. I’m definitely looking forward to pre-camp staff this summer. I’m not going to be doing anything elaborate during my evenings save the Monday night T-119 meetings. I plan on spending as little money as possible this summer. My goal is to spend ~$20 a week with occasional splurges of up to $40, but no more. I figure that way I can get as much debt as possible paid off and save some cash to get myself started in the “real world” — whatever that is.

The last couple weeks were good for me. I’ve been able to get back into touch with even more friends and keep myself sane with the school work that I’ve had to complete. The next couple weeks should be cake as the only two things standing between me and graduation are a research thing for Z302 and a final exam on Monday evening.

If I were to summarize my last couple weeks in a few words, they would be: Case Competition, Little 500, Job Searching, Halo and World of Warcraft.

Speaking of WoW, my goal is to finally hit 60 (the end-game level as of right now) by Staff Week. If I’m really lucky, I’ll be able to hit 60 by Staff Set-Up Weekend. I also think I’m going to start writing about my Adventures in Azeroth here just because it’ll let me write more.

I also created a new desktop image for myself tonight at work. Click the image to see a full-size image.


For those of you wondering, that’s an in-game snap of my toon. His name is Rootusair.

The HA staff this summer is as follows: I will be the High Adventure Director, Phil will pretty much be my right-hand man, his friend Devin will be my Man-at-the-Tower, Carney and Hayden will be the two n00s. I think there might be one more on my staff especially since I specifically asked for another person so we can have three instructors at both the Tower and C.O.P.E. at all times (not accounting for the Ranger Program).

I really want to develop a sense of ownership in the HA staff this year. I really want everyone to be proud of the work they do. Not only do I want them to want to come to work every morning, I would like it if they want to play as hard as they work and share their knowledge and skills with the rest of the RA staff. It’s a pretty lofty goal, but we came pretty close to it last year and I think we can nail it this summer.

That’s really about all I want to write about at the moment. Hopefully the rest of my shift goes well and I can sleep most of the day tomorrow.

take care!

  1. Dude! I’m still here! I meant to comment on your Google Calendar post, but I forgot.

    Also, I know what it’s like to have low readership, trust me.

    At least you’ve got friends to read it! 🙁

  2. Yea, it doesn’t really matter to me how many people read. I know I generate about 50 unique visits a day that aren’t bots (according to Google Analytics).

    And your link has been fixed on my site, btw.

  3. yo dude…

    i know that the HA staff this summer is going to be outstanding as ever…it always is…those are your kids and your “employees” (oh god i hate that word)…anyways…from what i see, i can guaranfuckingtee that every person on that staff you have is going to give 127% and you won’t have to worry about a thing this summer…you have NO idea how much i wish i could be there this summer…i was planning on taking some leave/vacation time to get out there but i don’t think that is going to happen…there’s a lot on the plate as far as work goes…let everybody know that i’m thinking about them and i think about them constantly…ransburg is the only other place i call “home” other than new mexico…
