Wow, what a week! I don't know how I got from Monday to Friday with no posts -- I kept thinking I should write something, and then I'd get sidetracked and never quite get it done. Whew!
Not that anything very urgent or interesting has been happening. In fact, maybe that's the problem -- if something interesting occurred I'd feel compelled to write a post! Instead, it's just been life as usual, which of course is interesting to me but probably not to the rest of you.
I've been working on my freelance gig. Last night I covered an awards ceremony for teenagers at the local courthouse. Quite a comedown from the professional press corps, and yet strangely fun. I enjoy reporting for a change, however mild it may be. This Sunday I'm covering the Memorial Day ceremony in the park. Woo hoo!
In fact, my life hasn't changed a whole lot. When I was working, I was in front of a computer all day, bouncing around on the Internet. Now I'm home, in front of a computer, bouncing around on the Internet. C'est la meme chose. (Except, of course, for the lack of a substantial paycheck.)
Aside from my freelance work, I've been catching up with "Thirtysomething," one of my favorite TV series of yore. I rented the DVDs from Netflix and I'm digging them. The show isn't dated at all, though some of the clothes and styles certainly are. Oh, those crazy '80s!
I really need to get into the city and do some photography. I'm completely out of pictures to upload to Flickr. On Wednesday I tried to photograph some graffiti I'd seen the previous Friday near the New Jersey Turnpike, and it had already been buffed. I couldn't believe my bad luck!
