One Week To Go...

Well, this is it.  Monday... of the last week at my job.  I'm both excited and terrified.  It's odd to me that after Friday, I will no longer be allowed inside the building.  I won't chat with the people in the cafe as they prepare my lunch.  My daily routine over the past two and almost a half years is changing.
Bright side: I won't have to use the restrooms up there anymore. Not that they were gross.... but who likes bathrooms that a hundred people use a day? This will be an emotional week, full of goodbyes and tears, I'm sure.  

I apologize (again) for being a bit of a flaky blogger lately.  Not only did I get to spend a week in Alaska (a pre-layoff planned trip -- pictures to come!), but I've been playing catch up with my photo session edits.  I'm very thankful that I have quite a few sessions lined up, but it's not quite enough to make a fraction of what I was making.  So I'm in for a long and difficult stretch ahead, and I'm doing my best not to over-stress myself.

For those of you who are Buffy lovers, I am on season 7 now (working from home has it's Netflix viewing perks!--and multiple computer monitors is a must), and it's amazing how much has changed.  (The musical episode... AWESOME)  I used to be 100% team Angel, but that Spike.... 

he. is. hilarious.

Well, not so much anymore in season 7, but season 6 was pretty awesome most of the time.  I often found myself thinking, "Angel who?".  Anyway... I'm curious to see how it will all turn out.  Right now I'm a bit disappointed in this season, but... whatever.  It is what it is!  AND! Buffy has inspired me to be a better me.  (I've lined up some martial arts DVDs on Netflix... first step in superhero training ;)  bwahahahaha.

Next up on the Netflix line up is Angel, followed by Firefly, then Veronica Mars!


  1. ooh! you're almost done! of course i'm talking about buffy, but i guess that goes for the job too. i hope your heart holds up under all the good byes! take lots of pics!
    i only saw about one season of angel, but it was a super cool show too!

  2. I hope your last week at your job goes well. That's a tough thing. My dad "retired" a few years ago, but really he just retired before they could lay him off. Our family went through some rough times before he found another job. But at least you have time for your photography now! My sister's a photographer so I sort of know what it's like. She loves it - a fun job. :)

  3. Ohhh... Veronica Mars. I wanna watch!! :)

    I hope you're last work week goes well. Once it's all over and you've settled from the shock of change, you'll look back and think, "I'm so glad that happened! Look where I'm at now!" :)

  4. Isn't Netflix great? I'm just diving into Firefly myself. I think I'm about to become a Joss Whedon fan...

  5. Joss Whedon does in fact seem to be a bit brilliant. LOL.

  6. Dear Kristin,

    Am very much looking forward to seeing your work from Alaska. Good luck with your new and ongoing creative work. Peace,
