I actually like my job. I can't believe I am saying this, after my insane job ADD of the last year, but it's true. I bust my butt all day for at least 10 hours, usually 11 plus, and I go home happy at the end.

Oh yeah, I haven't written about my job. I was hired full-time to work in the caves. I get to spend all day doing something I really like, learning a lot, and working insanely fast and hard. Of course, I do other stuff too - it isn't all fun and games and cheese babysitting, but it's the icing on the cake.

Now, onto a scarier note. A friend of mine caters on the side, and couldn't do a job this weekend, so she passed it on to me.
I thought, Hey, I could use a few extra bucks! I love to entertain. How hard can it be?
I am a pretty neurotic person, so just the planning and list-making is driving me mad! I am pretty sure it will go off without a hitch, and I think everything will taste good, but I worry about the pre-game Leanna that I will have to deal with!

We'll see how it goes. It's a baby shower, so at least the pregnant lady will be nice and hungry!

Oh, and a side note. July 3rd marks one year working in restaurants/the food biz. And it is about 1-1/2 years since the big change. I have to say, although the money sucks, I am truly happy in my career. So there, all you people who think I should go back to Landscape Architecture.
