Sorry that my movie posts this month have been a bit slow. It’s been a weird month. It’s my first month back at work since my company mostly shut down to some viral outbreak going on. Since returning back to work just over a month ago, I’ve found that I spend a bit too much time watching silly YouTube videos, and I’m still working on de-cluttering my spare time.
On top of that, there is some news to share. I’ve been working towards getting one kind of office job or another since I was 14. That’s more than half my life ago now. Everything from that business class I took in grade 9, to the computer programming I studied in college for a year (before deciding it wasn’t for me), to graduating Journalism Print in college. I did volunteer PR work, volunteer website maintenance, and volunteer IT work on top of all that. Long story short, I’ve applied to a couple office spots at work lately. Two weeks in a row, I had interviews. The one I had last week was successful. So successful in fact, that I was told by someone who would know they chose me the same day of the interview.
My mind is kind of occupied by that for the moment, so my next movie post probably won’t be at least until my first weekend after I start my new position. I also didn’t get much sleep last night, which for me, generally means that I can’t really contain my excitement all that well anymore. I’ve also been mandated to work on Saturday, which gives me one day to do all my weekend chores and food supply runs, in addition to mentally preparing for Monday morning.
As much as I’m getting excited about finally working at a desk, there are a lot of people on my current team that I’ll miss working with. Some I’d even call friends. There’s also the chance that I won’t enjoy a desk job as much as I hope. I’ve been working some sort of physical job since I was 12 (delivering catalogues and flyers). I like the fact that these types of jobs help keep me fit, and I get most of my best fiction ideas when I’m at work. That might not happen so much anymore. I might need to rely on my gym workouts and other exercise time for that instead. That is, when they do finally re-open the gyms around here. In other words, until I start on Monday morning, my mind is going to be a complete mess. An excited mess, but still.
I try to keep my pace of four movie reviews a month or more, but that’s just not happening this June. I haven‘t even found the time to watch my next movie to review yet, so hopefully it’ll be sometime between July 3rd and July 5th.
