I'm still sick, though getting a little better at managing the overwhelmed-ness, thanks for all your kind notes!
So to make up for a negative post, I thought a positive post was in order, a la Jennifer's Thankful Thursday's. :)
Three things I am thankful for this week include:
Sak put some up on our bedroom windows, and oh golly does it make a difference. Of course now I never leave the bedroom since it's the only space in the house that somewhat retains heat! I need to buy more bubble wrap. It also comes in a pink color, Sak would like you to know.
Manga Phone App
Being able to read scanlated manga on my phone is an amazing change to my commute. Thousands of titles, right at my fingertips, it's addictive. Currently I'm reading Yankee-kun to Megane-chan, which is about a delinquent girl trying to be a model student, and her delinquent guy friend who she drags along with her.
Anyway, I'm using a free app called "Manga What" right now, though I think the most popular Android app is "Manga Watcher". I get so excited when I see other people reading manga on their phones too! Like today, I saw a middle-aged business man reading Bleach. Secret otaku, all over!
Seriously, they make my job so much more enjoyable. A few ladies on my floor have really taken shy-and-strange-old-me under their wing and I just feel so blessed to know them. Today we painted a playhouse together for a volunteer event. We do company zumba together, and of course we "talk story" (Sak Hawaiian speak) in each others cubes. We're all very different, living far away from each other, with different life events going on, different backgrounds, etc. - but they are all very fun, sweet women. And I guess I'm even more blessed to have them since there still aren't a whole lot of women engineers out in the workplace yet.
Anyway, I hope you have a wonderful weekend! I will be playing catch up on many, many things that need to be done. At least it will be warm in my bubble-wrapped room!:D
