And we're back!

As you may have noticed, I took a bit of a hiatus from blogging. This whole employment thing has really been cutting into my internet exploring.

I've been enjoying my job very much. I have always had the blessing of finding wonderful mentors wherever I go and my new workplace is no exception. The psychologists there are brilliant, passionate, and have been teaching me tons. I could say that I love learning but that wouldn't be entirely true. What I really love is being awesome at things. Unfortunately for my ego, there is a lot of learning that must take place before I can be anywhere near awesome at my job. So in the mean time, I'll endure the awkwardness of feeling fraudulent, bumbling my way through daily tasks and asking obvious questions.

Aside from working, I've been walking barefoot, eating ice cream, hanging out with family, going to barbecues, sleeping without blankets, having slushy drinks on patios, playing with our dog at the river, and taking in local festivals. Last weekend we had a great time at the Folk Fest. I'm posting the song Imitosis by Andrew Bird who played on Friday night. He was absolutely wonderful.

I was coming by to check your blog, disgruntledly thinking, "Now that she has a job she never blogs anymore..." And look, here you have blogged, and confirmed my thoughts. Good to hear from you. Glad your job is going well. And boy can I relate with the just wanting to be awesome at things - without the learning part. Trying to grow in that area too!

You're the real deal Jamie-no fraud talk will be allowed from you anymore! I'm glad that the world of work has not interfered with your enjoyment of things around you, even though it has impacted your blogging time!
