So it seems I let a month slip by without posting here. Whoops. Now we’re at month marker number 4 in Evansville. I wonder when I’m going to stop counting…
In the past month, I’ve definitely had ups and downs. Things are constantly changing and sometimes I struggle with that, but I feel like I’m getting a handle on it a little bit better now.
I’m going to start volunteering soon at a place called VistaCare. It’s a hospice that operates in the EVV area. I start some patient care training on Monday. I’m really excited about it. I think it’s going to feel really good to do something that makes me feel like I’m making a difference.
Things at CMC are going well. The French calls have quickly passed into the “just another annoying phone call” category. But I’m starting to meet and hang with more people that I work with and that alone is making the job about 30 times more tolerable. I even got a complimentary call the other day. Someone I spoke to called a supervisor to tell them that I (and I quote) “restored his faith in the credit union and customer service.” It was kind of neat and validating, in a lame, I-work-in-a-call-center sort of way.
I also got a new toy. The iBook was threatening to crash and take all my music and pictures with it, so I bit the bullet and bought a new MacBook, which I’m quite enjoying. Sissy and I have taken to video conferencing on Skype, which as been really fun. It’s nice to get to actually see here and sort of feel like we’re hanging out for a change. God love the internet.
So, right now, I’m feeling pretty decent. I had a good weekend spent with good company. I laughed a lot, and I think that’s a good way to start off month 5.
