|Beware the Dog|
|2003-06-05 || Feeling OK|
I know that I need to update and that is sad that I have absolutely nothing important to say �.� But I know that I need to update when someone e-mails me to tell me that they think it is till raining here.� How�s Texas, buddy?� Sounds great and I am so happy for you.� I am definitely going to try to catch-up on personal e-mails tonight.� After I work out. Here is the most recent meaningless chatter of what I�ve got going on.�
I gave a monthly training/orientation session yesterday � only SEVEN people showed up an all time-frikkin�-low!� Sucks.� I am going to be able to get a lot done this month with out having to worry about residual interviews, discussions, e-mail debates and other volunteer problems.� There are only SEVEN new volunteers �. CRIKEY!
Huge event this weekend.� If you live in the Atlanta area come to North Atlanta H.S. for the Atlanta Humane Society�s annual Flea Fair.� I�ll be there � bells on, ya� know what I mean.�
I feel like I have spent all week writing lists, adding and subtracting names as I prepare for this weekend.� When I was little I would play school and write all these names down and take roll.� I never imagined that I would have a job like this when I grew up � if I even count as a grown up.� Events freak me out �. I always imagine no volunteers showing up and me being a complete failure.� Someone have some extra self-esteem?� Anyone?
The boyfriend and I are getting a new dog.� Not really.� My older sister needs someone to watch her three pound poodle, Killer, for the next few months.� It�s like a new play toy for my dobe, Atty. I don�t mind doing her this favor.� I almost appreciate it.� With the boyfriend starting law school and only one volunteer job I feel a little worthless.� OK, a lot worthless.� House training this dog for my sister as she prepares to move in with her almost fianc� is a pretty nice gift and makes me feel like I have a purpose.� Sad, But true.
I read an article the other day about how to raise self-esteem � you thought that I was kidding when I asked you if you had extra � Nah, dog � I�m for real about that.� The article says that people that know who they are � the good, the bad and all that jazz � are people that have confidence.� So I started writing a list.� I feel good this week.� I feel like I know myself and that sometimes I suck but sometimes I can be pretty cool too.� And I feel good.� And, thanks for asking, the weather has been very nice.� So beautiful, in fact, I wish that I was outside all the time.
So, I feel good and worthwhile and busy and that is great.� Hope it keeps up.
