I'm not ignoring you

This particular Indexed hits close to home this week, as both really good and really bad things have happened very quickly in a short amount of time. I've barely had time to process one before something else happens. I'm never sure if I should laugh or sit on my couch with ice cream and stare at the wall.

Tuesday: My neighbors' dog bit me as I walked out to my car, first thing in the morning.

Wednesday: While I tried to eat my cereal in peace, my tooth shattered. This is the second time this has happened thanks to some botched sealants when I was a kid. I got right in for a filling, and when my dentist saw my tooth, she said: "Oh. I've never seen that before. Did you get some work done in Russia?". She was serious. Apparently, fillings done overseas are colored. Now I know.

Thursday: Pulled over on my way home because I have a headlight out. Thankfully, the officer was not only really nice, but he let me go without a ticket. I considered a hug but deemed it inappropriate.

On the (very) bright side, I have a job. A real job. A design job. Full time! It's been almost a year since my last job, so the transition is a little rough right now. I work in a great studio with six other people. We play music, plan campaigns just for fun, and have toys all over the office. That said, we do a lot of work. Yesterday, I put together 26 presentation boards, recreated three pieces, and designed two newsletter concepts. I'll be taking a week off before "officially" joining the studio. Things are about to change around here.

And on that note, I'm tired. Tomorrow is Friday and more welcome than any Friday in a long time. Enjoy your weekend, everyone!

Whoa, a job! Awesome and congratulations! Now about that dog...I know a guy who does good work with dogs. Fast, quiet and under the radar... ;)
