Ick PickMy boss was at my desk about thirty minutes ago going over a problem with a program I worked on (it wasn’t my fault). While she was talking my eye starting to pulsate and the little ice pick started to drill it’s way into my head. I think she thought I was on crack or something because I started to not pay attention and giving the yes yes answer to everything. I haven’t come out of the “migraine closet” yet here; not sure if I really will. One person does know but she doesn’t really know the full extent.

Speaking of my job, I may have a new one again. Long story short, I’m talking to a software engineering firm and now that I have my degree, places like this are interested in me. One of my friends works for a big hardware-software place and I’ve gotten pretty far in their process. I’m cozy here where I am but I’m not going to not take a chance for someplace else. This new job would require travel which I’m open to and it’s project-focused rather than bug fixes all the time. I’m excited; it may mean I get to be creative at work too since I’d be designing stuff.

Ah, the headache just went away. I’d die if Excedrin didn’t work for me. It’s just weird that normal NSAIDs are abortives for me even after I have the headache.

I'm a 20-something full time geek, part time student and photographer with a life partner, dog, house, and the two cars. I also have an ice pick in my left temple every day.
