Okay, I'll admit it...

The new job is growing on me. The thing I liked about working at Amsterdam Print (besides Francis) was that it was EASY. I've been given a couple more responsibilities, and that prevents boredom.

Not allowed to listen to music, though. It's a small bummer.

The early hours are killing me, but it's soooooooo worth it.

Lame Job

Good grief, it feels like being at Amsterdam Print all over again.

So far, the job is ridiculously easy. My biggest problem is that 85% of the time, they use Quark XPress instead of Adobe InDesign. Having CS4 is pretty nice, though. The place is kind of a hole, now that I've seen more of it.

The people there are nice, but that's really it. There isn't anyone I could see myself hanging out with.

On the plus side, there's a deli/cafe that sells all the great organic & fair trade chocolate bars.

New Job

Some of you already know, but I've neglected the blog. Last Tuesday I had an interview. I must have bullshitted just enough for them to hire me. I start this Tuesday.

It's in a huge printing plant in DUMBO, Brooklyn. The hours are 8 to 4:30. This will probably be the death of me, regarding sleep, but it'll be worth it.

The pay is about the same. There is less vacation time. However, there aren't any pay deductions for health insurance.

Children of Alcoholics Week

From Dr Tian Dayton, c/o Huffington Post:

"It's "Children of Alcoholics Week" so this blog is dedicated to anyone, of any age, who has lived with addiction and the emotional extremes, chaos and dysfunction that it engenders. One of the strange phenomena of living with dysfunction and pain as a child is that the effects of it can surface much later, even in adulthood. This is because of what's known as a post traumatic stress reaction in which long after the stressor is removed, in this case alcoholic or abusive parents, we live with the effects of it in our lives and relationships our relationships, particularly our intimate relationships."
