If you are looking for a job in IT and would like to work at a non-profit, Oxfam America currently has an opening for a Desktop Support Engineer. Follow this link for the job description. I would really like to get someone in here soon. Oxfam is a really great place to work. The benefits are good and the people are really nice. If you have any questions about Oxfam or the position leave me a comment or e-mail me. Also if you know of anyone looking for a job, feel free to pass this on.

Okay all of you techies out there. I'm researching help desk solutions for my company cause our current one sucks. I'd also like to have automated asset management because it would make my life so much easier. So any suggestions? Any solutions that your companies use or past employers have used that seemed to work well?

We manage about 300 users in 8 locations across the globe. I would really like it if it integrated with the inventory and e-mail and Active Directory.

I'm doing some web research but there is so much out there it would be good to have some particular vendors to look at.

(yes I need a technology icon)
Well, I'm here and connected. Yesterday was simply exhausting, so much so I still feel it today. I napped once today and I'm still very, very tired. But there is tons to be done. My room is just a crazy jumble of boxes and I'm just not sure where to fit everything. So much to do, so much to do. Have to go to the bank and set up an account. Need to go food shopping, though that's not as important cause I can live for a little while on what's here. Gotta find a job, that is priority one. Well I should get back to work. No rest for the weary.
...but that is the worst thing that happened to me lately. I'm happy. Yup I feel good. I did think that I would feel this way with my summer coming to a close in 5 days but I do. I had a good weekend. I got to see my family, and one of my friends and I got to go to Salem. I went and saw Rat Race on Monday and it was soooo funny. I had the giggles for the rest of the night. I had the best time at Haven last night. Even before I started drinking I was just in such a good mood. I was so happy to see people and talk to them and wander around and dance and just be there. It was a strange experience being drunkish at the club, but not terrible. Just different. At least it didn't cost me a lot, as it has been said I'm a cheap drunk *giggle* (it doesn't cost a lot to get me drunk, "I am not responsible for any other meaning that might be implied by that" *giggle* I guess I still have the giggles.

I'm nervous and excited about my new job. I start on my birthday, but that doesn't really bother me. I 'm just worried I can't hack it as a teacher. But at the same time I think it will be good for me to be involved in something worth doing again (this summer job has not really been very exciting, it's been easy but boring). Guess I'll just take it one step at a time.

Speaking of that may be why I'm so happy. I think I've been doing more living in the moment and less always worrying about the next one. I think I need to try and keep this up.

So I need to buy a toothbrush.

My second interview yesterday went really well and they pay more and have good benefits. I have to go back for the second half of the interview soon, but I have a good feeling about this place.

I didn't go to Haven last night, partly because it didn't sound like anyone else was and partly because I was exhausted, but I do plan on going to Necrology tonight as should 99 other people so it doesn't get shut down.

Work sucks.

So I got a call back for the interview I went to on Friday. I'm going to be interviewed by a committee on Tuesday. I was thinking some more about this school and I think that this could be a really cool job. When I was young they wanted to put me into the gifted program at my elementary school but we moved before I started. Years later I hear how alienated all those kids were. And thinking how the really smart kids always seemed to get alienated and can't really feel proud of themselves because I the way their peers treat them. So I was thinking that this school is a really good thing because all the children here are smart. They can feel proud of themselves and like they belong somewhere. And I can help these kids feel good about themselves too, so they don't end up like me. (So yes you made a good point)
I have one more application left to do and that is because I added it today. I checked out some different job options. Like working for Sylan Learning Center. Something different could work for me. After this one all I have to do is sit back and wait for calls....haha just kidding. I gotta keep on top of these people or they forget you and I have to keep checking those sites I put my resume on. But the big part will be off my mind. Now I've gotta work on my portfolio in the event that I get an interview. AHHH its' neverending. Oh well.

My new pillows kick ass. I had no neck and shoulder pain when I woke up this morning. (Thank you Larry for reminding me that I needed to buy new pillows).

Still no idea of what to wear to Haven tomorrow night (suggestions welcome).

Have a rant but I'm sick of sitting in front of this computer so it will have to wait. I think I'm gonna lie on my new pillows now.

It's so nice outside and I have massive amounts of work to do. Vacations are never long enough. Spent all day yesterday in Noho applying to employment agencies in hopes of a summer job. It was rather exhausting. I also didn't have time to drink, eat,or pee until 5:30. But anyway.

My dreams weren't helpful. In fact, I can't even remember what they were. I'm still confused. My friend says I should talk to my gf and he is probably right. But its such a touchy issue and she's in a rough place right now and I feel like I'm being selfish. But something isn't right. And there are things I miss. Actually, I kind of miss boys. And I think I want to give the whole poly thing another go, but I don't think she's going to go for it, not now. We've put it on the back burner for so long that I think she thinks that I don't feel that way anymore. I hate having difficult serious conversations. Still very confused.

I need sleep. There is only one person in the lab tonight. Usually this lab is mobbed when I work and it keeps me awake but tonight it is very very quite. So tempted to just put my head on my desk and take a little nap.

I was not me yesterday. I was this strange girl who wanted to hide under the table and avoid the human race. Gotta love mood swings. I think I should come with a warning label. Actually, I think a lot of people should come with a warning label.

Saturday was just too long. It was a good day. But it involved me getting up at 7 (which meant I was late getting up) running like crazy around the apt. trying to get ready so I didn't miss the bus. Going on a field trip that was cool but essentially a waste of my morning. Except for feeling like I had just woken up all day the rest of the day was cool. I got to hang out with a very cool girl. I got to go to Northampton and have a yummy dinner and see Catie Curtis (who rocks by the way and I must find her cd's) and Dar Williams. And then there was the bus home. Being the wuss I am I decided to wait in town and take the North Amherst bus all the way around (it was late and cold). While waiting I saw Kat and her boy and some guy I didn't know walking on the other side of the street. And when the bus went by frat row there were 6 police cars, an ambulance, and a crowd (another reason I never ever went to a frat party among many others). Then there was the drunk people on the bus, who I really just tried to zone out. Then I locked my roommate out cause I thought she was home but she wasn't.

Only one more day of classes and I'm outta here. I can't wait. I need a break from here (as much as I love it). And I get to see my best friend and his family. I don't think I have been this happy to go home since freshman year. I don't know if that is good or bad.

So many things to think about. Thanksgiving and going home, master teaching, what to do with winter break, and next semester, and the many assignments I seem to be behind on. Then there all that social stuff.

I think I will survive T-day at home. I think it might even be good for me. It all else fails at least I get to go shopping :)

Next semester looks like it just might fall in place. Though I'm still afraid that I'm not up to the challenge, that I will never have enough energy to do things the way I want to. Must have faith that it will get better or that I will at least survive.

Also have to start thinking about getting that teacher job. Where and how and who and many unanswered questions.

The assignments will get done and if they don't, well its senior year I can take an incomplete.

So many possibilties for fun tonight, the poly meeting, bowling with Pride Alliance, or going to the pub w/my collegues. But I think I might just go home and go to sleep. Two nights with out it are taking their toll.

Going to see how much I can accomplish between now and then.

Its amazing I can waste all the time I have at work. Yup. I seem to be able to amuse myself for three hours and in the process avoid falling asleep to the droning of the printer and avoid doing any thing remotely resembling productive work. Yes, I have been eaten by the apathy monster. If it requires brain cells and motivation then its not getting done. Ack!
There are so many productive things I could be doing right now, like all that homework I keep putting off.

I checked all my email accounts. (nothing interesting)
I read the new entries on my friends page (everyone must be busy cause they are all really short).
Discoved www.imbored.com is a really boring site

have to figure out where a I have to go to vote tomorrow.

have to decide whether or not to go to Haven tomorrow

mostly I'm going to sleep as soon as can after this shift is over

and look I managed to waste another five minutes :)
