I have been HELLA stressed this past couple of weeks, so I went to Tune Trivia at San Jose Mexican Restaurant and drank a couple of PITCHERS of Margaritas with some friends. As you can see, we closed the place.(sad.....yet kinda cool)We play Tune Trivia, music trivia every other Wednesday night. Here's the thing,....I sit at a table filled with djs and you know what? WE GOT OUR A** BEAT DOWN! We didn't even place. How pathetic? Anyway, we took loads of pictures with my digital camera. It's 3.2 megapixals and I got it in June,...so now I want a new one. A friend of mine started fiddlin' with the darn thing and took this cool artsy looking picture of me on the dang phone arranging a little private afterparty. I didn't know that camera could do that. Apparently the Sony Cybershot has a crapload of features. Who knew? (lesson for today....READ THE DAM MANUAL!) oopsy, my bad.

Anyway, the new job has been FINANCIALLY rewarding and emotionally stressfull. You see, I was initally a part-time employee. This was my second job. Now, I am the boss/director. Of course, I have my own bosses but the people that trained me (some still are) are now having to answer to me and it's not going over too well. Wanna know the sad thing about it all,...I get more sh*t from my black employees than the white ones. (i still have eyes in the back of my head,...don't get it twisted) In particular this guy that showed me the ropes when I started has been trying to treat me like I work for him. (some people say it's his Napoleon complex) Thing is,...although he showed me the ropes,...I had education, the experience and the RIGHT people recommending me. I'm trying not to go off.

Thank God for School Systems. Apparently the campus closes down on the 20th and will not re-open till January. HOORAY!!! I don't get a month like Will but I still get off. I can't wait!

Hey Jazzmine, I am gonna give you something from the greatest book ever written:

DO NOT BE ANXIOUS ABOUT ANYTHING, BUT IN EVERYTHING, BY PRAYER AND PETITION, WITH THANKSGIVING, PRESENT YOUR REQUEST TO GOD, AND THE PEACE OF GOD WHICH TRANSCENDS ALL UNDERSTANDING WILL GUARD YOUR HEART AND YOUR MIND THROUGH JESUS CHRIST. PHILIPPIANS 4:6-7

Happy Holidays!!

yep, unfortunately the downside to starting a new position is that you must start from the bottom in terms of earning your right to be in that place. i hope that your transition in that effect is as easy as possible. there will always be someone waiting to challenge you as the director, so stay on your toes. :)

Heyyyyy Jazz!

That B&W photo looks like it can be an album cover...very nice!

And I won't even comment on the work stuff. You will never guess where I am today as I type this...the price of working for a non-profit. Sigh.

Don't cut nobody. To the bone, at least. ;-)

nice photo.

regarding the work. You'll settle in. I guess early on people justneed to test you because they probably dont know what you're made of.

I love that picture. Very cool ...

I had a friend go through the same thing at his job and it did take a while and it was stressful but eventually you do settle in and people will accept you in that position. Hang in there. ;)
