Hey, I finally got a new job! I'm working for Grizzly Graphics, doing computer stuff. I'm laying out banners, designing logos, stuff like that. I generally use Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, and a little bit of 3ds Max. It's great fun. My coworker/boss hasn't arrived yet, so I'm not sure yet what he wants me to do today. Last night I got to go Swing Dancing with Leah, ReAnne, Ryan Woods, and Craig (he's in the club). It was great fun. Last time I went by myself, and that was no good, so having an actual partner makes all the difference. Leah's lots of fun to dance with.
Ok, so yesterday I got in to my truck eventually. We called the security guy, because he has all these tools for opening cars. But after trying a few different things, he couldn't get it. So he left. I went down to the Cosmotology School here on campus, and "borrowed" one of their coat hangers, and fashioned it into a special tool. Eh eh eh. I managed to get my wire, through the back passenger side window, and jimmy it open, then I used it to reach up to the lock on that side. I got it down in the door through the crack around the lock knob, and hooked it under the knob, and pulled it up. Whoohoo! So that took a while, but it was a nice feeling of accomplishment. So, I went home, and later my sister proposed a bike ride. So I put some air in my front tire, we hopped on our bikes, rode down to Red Moose Lodge to meet up with my other sister, Jayne, and her hubby, then we rode down the road the the North Arm Trail, which runs around the west end of the lake. It was a little muddy in some spots, and I ran out of water halfway through the ride, but it was lots of fun. A good workout, although my rear is sore today. I need to adjust my bike saddle. Yowch. Tomorrow I'm gonna go in to Grizzly Graphics to see if I'm hired yet. Cross your fingers!
Ok, so I'm dumb. I locked my keys in my truck. Gosh. I hate me sometimes. Hopefully I can find someone with a hanger or a slimjim or something. I could do it with a hanger, but I have a special way of doing it. I don't know how to use a slim jim. Bother. I saw Sahara this weekend, and I liked it a lot. It was kinda long, but definately entertaining. And surprisingly clean! Not completely, of course, but hardly any bad language, and no sex. So, yes, I recommend it. I was on my mission web site, and I found one of the guys from one of my zones, who's really cool, and it turns out that he's living in Utah, and he's married with a kid! Crazy cakes. So I emailed him, and he wrote me back, so I gotta call him now. Fun beans. Tchau!
My truck is starting to be a little pain again. I'm still glad I got it, but little things keep happening, and I'm afraid something big might happen soon. Just out of bad luck. Today I left my headlights on again, and my battery died again. Luckily, a lady in my class had jumper cables, and helped me out. This is the third time I've done it. True, this isn't really the truck's fault, but I'm used to driving our Subaru, and it's headlights turned off automatically. Also, I think a new battery might help. It doesn't take too long for this one to die. My engine's pretty dirty too, from driving through the mud puddles on my driveway every day. I can't wait 'til it dries up. Supposedly my dad's going to get it paved this summer too, and that would be awsome. Our band is sounding good. We practiced last night, and our main song, Don't Follow, sounds great. Yup!
Today I'm pretty tired, since I was up 'til about three. I got home around two something last night, then I started playing a game. Dang computer. Then this morning, I automatically woke up at 8:30, which is good, because I couldn't hear my watch alarm in the other room. Then my brother wanted a ride to the Powder Mountain shuttle, so he could be there by 10, so he could teach ski lessons. So I had to leave home early. Blah. I was wanting to go down to Happy Valley today, to check out Glyphx. It's a game company in Orem, and I wanted to go see if they would talk to me, and let me look around, maybe check for job opportunities. You never know. I also just wanted to see what BYU's animation department is like. Supposedly they have some kind of supercomputer there. Hmmm. BUT, anyway, I'm too tired, and I think I'd need to leave in the morning. So I think I'm gonna have to take a day off, and go down next week. In other job related news, my dad was talking to his old friend, and current bishop, Kenny Wright, who owns a screenprinting and advertising company. One of his sons is leaving on a mission in a week or so, so they'll need a new guy. Someone who knows the computer programs. Which I do! So they kind of offered the job to me, through my dad, but they were on their way to Las Vegas, where they are today still, so hopefully when they get back, I'll be able talk to them about that. I've always wanted to work with them, so it's pretty cool. The other son who works there is Andy, who is my age. We've basically known each other our whole lives. We were even roommates in the MTC, by chance. So, It'd be fun to work with him, I think. And now for something completely different. Last night I got together with Matt Evans, Chad, Amy, Aubrey, Mellissa, and Chad's friend Scott, and we jammed in a little room in Chad's basement. It was crowded, loud, we kept having technical difficulties, and it was super fun. We practiced our main song for the talent show, and tried a couple others. The three girls are putting together a song or two also for the show, and they sang for us. Pretty awesome harmonies, and Mellissa played guitar, so it was way cool. I brought my trombone and trumpet, and played around with them a little, so that was kinda fun too. Mainly I just focused on my harmonica though. I keep discovering new things about playing it, so it's getting better. Chuck says there's a girl at the Credit Union where he works that he wants to set me up with, so we'll see how that goes. I've only been on one or two blind dates before, so yeah. Um, check out this band! www.gogo13.com if you're an Aquabats fan at all, or if you just like fun music. Also I just heard about The Shins, and they sound pretty cool too. www.theshins.com. Kind of like Modest Mouse, but not so weird. Wow that was a long post! Ok, see ya later!
