    Work's been postponed for two hours due to freezing rain. Got my fingers crossed that things will deteriorate enough for a snow day but not so much that the power goes out.

    Back to work today

    The heating is broken so it is 4°C in the office

    I did one meeting in a Starbucks and now I'm working from home

    Man

    Much as I like my job

    I really look forward to when I have enough leave to take a full week off and not have to worry about not having enough for later in the year

    I really could have used a longer break than just Christmas, Boxing Day and New Year's! I'm still pretty worn out! I'd very much prefer to be sleeping right now!

    I am absolutely this way. Gotta be useful somehow, and it can be hard to start up a nebulously defined project on your own terms. It's easier to do more at my job.

    It helps if you get a cut of the profits in some way.

    We should have had a snow delay for the kid and wife's schools today. Driving was a mess but the snow is already lightening up, it's pretty much the exact situation delays are made for.

    You guys that cat shelter I am going to try to volunteer at has a webpage of cats up for adaption and I clicked on it and now I'm dead they are all too cute.

    It's going to be super hard to not want to take them home.

    This was a good joke and I appreciated it once I thought about it for a few minutes haha.

    I also called OOD this morning to check on my referral to the job developer so my case worker is double checking this morning.

    Also I think my resume layout is looking pretty good? I'm sure I'm going to need to edit it but I like displaying some basic proficiency with Word right on my resume. How do ya'll feel about columns on a resume though? I'm kinda iffy on if it is the right choice or not? I think it makes it look tidier but then maybe it'll be better as one column after some editing?

    i am not used to having a well insulated house

    it was -10 F (-23.3 C) on the way in this morning

    which is apparently below the operating temperature for my shocks

    I am finding there just isn't enough actual work for me day to day. I come in, do my morning stuff in 1-2 hours, and then do my weekly stuff. If I get all that done theres a giant data entry project that I've been working on off and on since I got here but its extremely boring busy work and I've even been told its not that important which really sapped my motivation to do it.

    Some days I'm really bummed I don't live in the other timeline.

    Where each day I can wake up with the freedom to do what I'm passionate about, and create new things. Rather than waking up to do work for someone else, leaving myself too drained to follow the pursuit in the prescious hours left in the day.

    So I want to move the tv in the library from mounted on a pillar to sitting on top of a cabinet since the pillar is in a bad spot and it would help flow and noise separation from the video game program. I should probably secure the TV somehow just in case. Any good way to secure it without screwing it to the top of the cabinet? Some type of bike lock cable with a mount on the inside of the cabinet?

    Any good ideas? I am already cutting a big hole in the back of the cabinet for wires so I could easily run a cable inside that way.

    Am I overthinking this? There are already a ton a computers in the library just sitting there and only one kid has ever tried to heist one of those.

    You could use something like this to both secure and allow angle adjustments. If the cabinet has an exposed edge at the back you don’t even have to drill through it (though drilling would make it extra secure)

    You could use a ratchet strap and feed it through the hole (depending on the size of the hole and ratchet strap). Or a bungee cord. I'd recommend getting one of those sticky hook things and fit it under the hole under the cabinet top. That way you aren't making more holes than you need.
    Though depending on the way the tv mounts to the base that really doesn't add more stability. Do you have a picture of the mount? It might be best to drill 2 holes on the cabinet to thread a bolt through if the tv base has something.

    I have to announce the birthdays during the morning announcements. Last year when I did it on my birthday I was able to just sneak my name out with the student who was also celebrating on the 3rd, but today there wasn't anyone, so I had AP do it since he was doing the countdown for our New Year celebration we are doing today at the school. They made a whole thing about it. Also I've got balloons on my desk that they gave me so everyone has been wishing me a happy birthday. It's both nice and feels weird in a way. But yeah, it's nice. They also got me cake and a card.

    I just checked out that cat shelter. Just gotta do up a quick online application and come in anytime really.

    It's a very nice shelter, lots of nice cats that I hope will find good homes. Until then I'm going to be helping out late mornings to early afternoons to socialize them, clean a bit, maybe do little bits of clerical stuff or answer the phones if necessary.

    Plus it is walking distance from me now.

    Volunteered to lead/organize a charity gaming event at my work - last year was the first time we did it and we raised $10k for local children's hospitals. The organizer of that event is no longer with the company, so I stepped up to keep it going.

    I have never done anything like this before and am excited/terrified?

    When I was a kid we had one of ours cats run away/disappear and my mom just went out and bought a similar looking one (same breed, similar coloration)

    My dad never knew the difference

    They lolly gagged around downstacking the GM trucks the grocery truck came right before lunch.
    They barely did the freight one person when he left had over 15 pallets to do. I was there until about 5:30 working what was left.
    I am writing up the one that left all the freight and addressing the rest of them. I know I am not a D&D bard because I don't have inspire but still if you want to level at 2300 then work like it

    Status update on those jobs I'm most interested in is that the search is ongoing (one I applied for 8ish weeks ago and the other 5 weeks ago). Should I just write these off, or...?

    Sadly, I would think so. The 5 weeks one might be delayed because of the holidays, but if you haven't even heard from them, then I'd assume they don't want to interview you.

    Anyway, if you have some contact info, then it doesn't hurt to ask.

    Yeah, that's how I got the message about the ongoing search-- I've been taking screenshots of postings so that I have something to use as prep for interviews in the unlikely event I get one, including the name of the person in charge of the search (and usually contact information, but I can ferret that out on my own for a public organization with the name). I sent another message this morning and was told that they're still reviewing applications (end of the semester plus holidays equals things slowing down in academia), so... still some hope. Not going to stop me from looking for other stuff, but yeah.
