so I tend to put stuff off and make excuses for myself....even now...
something happened related to that, and even though it probably wouldn't have turned out differently, I still feel kinda shitty about the whole thing. Like, if I wasn't a frikkin' wuss, maybe it would have been different or something...
so much for my journey of self-growth...I've got a long way to go, I guess.
BTW, on more pleasant news, for those that don't know yet. I'm working for Google now (I started last Monday). I'm on a temp-to-hire track, so right now, I'm a contracted temp employee, but after a few mos they have an eval, at which point (if I did well), I'm invited to be a Full-timer, which is when I get all the juicy benefits. Right now, I'm stuck at 3 FREE square meals a day and free drinks and free snacks and free gym (thank god for that, or I would gain like so much weight...who am I kidding, I'm probably not going to use it)...still, those are pretty good perks for a temp employee.
I still can't shake the feeling that I'm seriously missing the memo regarding what I'm supposed to do with my life, though. Don't get me wrong, Google is cool, but I really feel like I'm missing whatever it is that is going to be IT, you know? like THE job. And I don't know what I should be looking for. 悔しい。
Oh, I'm living in Cupertino with a bunch of my friends from Stanford. It's pretty cool. They're all really fun. And into comics and manga. AWESOME.
I saw Talladega Nights. omg, so fucking hilarious. Seriously. HILARIOUS. If you like Will Ferrell at all, go see it. NOW. Stop wasting time reading this and GO SEE IT. this will still be here for you to finish reading when you get back.
I just found out that my friend in Japan has been sexually harassed multiple times by this dept. head, and not one of those edge, not-quite-sure cases of it. It's clear cut that the head of some other department in her company is harassing her and it pisses me off. The dude is a fucking asshole. She's taking it up with her HR dept. I told her she should look into hiring a lawyer if they don't do anything. Japan's not litigious, I know, but still, it's ridiculous.
Probably going to start doing Kendo again starting tomorrow (today actually, now). But I'm going to go to a different Dojo, so I won't get to train with my old sensei, which is too bad. I liked him. Oh well. meeting new ppl, I guess.
Oh, lastly, I might separate out these two blogs that I have, but I'm not sure how yet. They're just going to continue mirroring each other for now.
That's it for now, actually. I'm getting back into posting now, I think. I hope. And now, off to bed.
