Hi FF! I'm back. Had a great time. Missed you all. I don't have my pictures uploaded yet, so in the meantime here's one Paul Buchheit posted to his Facebook timeline, of the immense sculpture "Embrace" burning on Friday morning.
it's bittersweet being at work now. I'm working on projects I'm actually interested in (which hasn't been the case for awhile) and jazzed about, learning new software and feeling more engaged than I have for years, yet now it's all on a timer... it's just bizarre.
going over my finances again today I realized I squirreled away a month's salary in a CD awhile back. praises be for all the advice I was given over the years to have an emergency fund, and bless you past self for heeding it.
My siblings and I earned our first DVD player (edit: actually VCR player) by digging dandelions out of our yard, five cents per root that measured an inch or longer. That remains one of my prouder accomplishments. #saturdayFF
