|||||Panic At The Disco - The Only Difference Between Martyrdom..||]|
It's been forever; sorry to disappoint, readers. So much has happened in the last month (and a half?). Let's start with a life-update.
I've been working for iD Tech Camps as a curriculum developer, writing the coursework that will be taught to the kids at camp this summer. There's something mildly stressing and gratifying about developing something alone that will be taught to 15,000 kids during the summer of '06 and beyond. Wow. Anyway, the company flew me out to San Jose, California to present my curriculum to them and tell them what they needed to know about it to market it to parents of the would-be campers. They've got a really friendly and great group of people working to make the camps possible. Only 33 people work full-time at this company, yet they have scores of locations around the US and have 15,000 kids enrolled for this summer. That's an impressive logistics think-tank they've got. After the presentation we had a company vacation down to Pajaro Dunes, where we had some leisure time and some team building activities. Beautiful area right on the beach, though I lost my cellphone to the Pacific. Greedy ocean. I had the hardest time wanting to get myself motivated for school again, once I returned.
Valentine's Day came and went, with a lesson learned about surprises - always rehearse a scavenger hunt :). But I had a great time with my girlfriend and I'm quite glad she could come down!
My friend Jyoti had her 21st birthday, so we threw her a party, though at her request, it was a Super Hero [Dance] Party (though the dancing occurred spontaneously and only for half an hour). As per the house joke that I'm really a soccer mom at heart, I garbed myself in the clothes befitting Soccer Mom Man. Most everyone's costumes turned out great, and Mike actually pulled off a very convincing Jesus (Pictures on Facebook if one is so inclined).
And now I'm sitting at home in Woodland Park finishing this entry. I honestly thought I was going to get a 'deep' entry done since I'm so long overdue, but I'm too sleepy now. If you pester me about it, I'll probably get around to it soon. I've had a lot of revelations about the nature of emotions, identity, and human psychology recently and have just been too lazy to frame it in a journal post.
Current options for Spring Break: camping in Colorado, driving to someplace coastal and warm, road-tripping somewhere random, exploring Mexico, rockhounding or cave exploration, kayak trip, or staying home.
Current ambitions for future careers: becoming a bodyguard, a homeopathist, an acupuncturist, a martial arts instructor, a businessman, a restaurant owner, or maybe all in one. Time will tell!
