Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. Labor Day weekend (in the US of A) is approaching...what's something you've labored over this year?
I can't really think of anything. Nothing's been harder this year than any other. How about I labored over the answer to this question.
2. What is one word to describe your 'job' or career?
Busy. At least for the job I'm currently at and I hopoe it will continue that way for the rest of the time I'm there. For the library: interesting, maybe. I do a lot of the same things everyday, but I also run into a lot of new situations as well.
3. What was your worst or least favorite job ever? Why?
I'd have to say an office assistant. I don't even remember what I did there, but I remember sitting at a desk working by myself with no interaction.
4. How do you measure contentment?
Maybe when I'm doing something I want to and everything goes right, but when does that ever happen? Even when I'm doing my art, things don't always go the way I think they should, of course things in the end usually look better than I thought they would.
Sunday, I had a really good day. I was working at the bookstore, was at a different location in the bookstore, was working with people that were fun and it wasn't really busy. I also got to learn something new, that was nice.
5. Pickles-like or dislike? What is something you eat that requires a pickle? Dill, bread and butter, sweet gherkins...what's your favorite kind of pickle?
I love pickles. I'm actually looking for a way to make my lunch sandwich more exciting, so I bought pickles.
6. In your current house-town-state, what is it you like living close to?
I'm close to a grocery store, the library (even closer when we move back), and local shopping. I figure if I can walk places in under an hour, I'm close.
7. What is one thing on your 'want-to-do' list before summer draws to an official close?
I have a lot I want to do, none of it is going to get done. I'm working 9+ hour days the rest of this week and since the end of summer is Labor Day, it will be here before I know it. My mind keeps reminding me of past vacations, and I feel I should take one, but that's just not going to happen.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
I'm working temporarily at the university's bookstore. One of my co-workers was talking about how less and less people can write legibly and fill things out. As an exercise for me, I decided to write the ansers out to this first. I've always loved my hand writing, it's not the fanciest or nicest, but I love that it's a mixture of cursive and printing.

I love these memes. They're questions that make me think on a different level than I usally do at work, it's nice to stretch my brain.

I still like to write by hand, and have always liked my handwriting. I do find it's not quite as neat as it used to be, probably because I don't get as much practice : )

My favorite way to write is a mix of cursive and print too :) I love getting handwritten notes.
