Package [Jan. 7th, 2006|10:58 pm]
[mood |restlessrestless]
[music |(Utada Hikaru) Simple and Clean]

Yay, my package arrived today! I finally decided to spring for the Yu Yu Hakusho Spirit Detective saga box set (since it's now like 2-3 years old and will probably start disappearing from store inventories). Good times... I had almost forgotten what the original Japanese voices sound like after having endured the Cartoon Network dubbed version. Need to start scouting for Dark Tournament saga and Chapter Black saga, now.

Things are going well at work. The busy holiday season is finally starting to slow down. And (amazingly) there are recent hires who are even newer than me. It feels kind of strange to be teaching and answering questions when I barely know what I'm doing myself -- not that I'm complaining.

Finally saw the new Harry Potter movie on New Year's day. Worth the price of admission, but I think Prisoner of Azkaban is still my favorite. Haven't gotten around to seeing Narnia yet. But the good news is that my recent flu-like virus deal seems to be subsiding. All in all, not a bad start to the new year.

Ah, I remember that feeling long ago. But now, as one of the rare and elusive interns at Greif Corporation, it seems very unlikely... I don't think I'll ever fully understand why it is they have us at all! They don't seem to have any intern program in place and we're treated like mostly regular employees, which is nice in that we are respected but annoying in that we get no training, long-term goals, or investment on the company's behalf. Hell, I am supposedly about to create a method of forecasting sales using Access macros, and yours truly was not even given the OPPORTUNITY to go to the Access training course my boss took earlier in the year. I think they only spend money on us when we leave for good (since it's an excuse to go out to lunch. ;P)

Ah well, good times. Until then, good luck!

It took us a while to hire on students who were younger than me here in my office. That amused me to no end :)
