I had a fun day at work today. The time flew by! I almost worked overtime by accident. There is an element of strikhedonia in this, but mostly it was the fact that in my new position I have very little responsibility and today we happened to be very overstaffed. But... I just realized today that I loved my job at Barnes & Noble best when I was at the Customer Service desk, not as newsstand lead or head cashier, with the attendant stresses, headaches, and responsibilities that comes with those jobs. Now that I'm just a normal lead with only one little zone to worry about, plus the knowledge that I leave this job in less than two months... it's refreshing. Odd that I should really start to enjoy my job a lot again now that I'm leaving it, eh?
I have been engaging in rounds of geeky sphallolalia with a boy at work lately. We are getting kind of, um, touchy with each other, but really, it will go nowhere. He really just likes me for my utter nerd-factor.
After much consideration, I have decided that I want to give Ikelos a cloth body for sure. For awhile I was considering the SD asexual body for him (the quiddity of Ikelos is both masculine and feminine, but "him" is probably more appropriate), but I just like the thought of having a squishy doll. *grins*
In most respects, I am usually a philologer, but damned if I can work up the motivation to actually learn how to teach other people English. No, that's not it, exactly... I think that I just don't like homework. And really? Creating lesson plans it totally homework. And reading EFL textbooks is boring. I haven't even finished one of the eight lesson plans I have to do yet. And they're due Tuesday. *sighs*
