new directions and stuff

So. It's been a while....mainly due to the dark times I was going through months ago. I was working, but at a job I wasn't really happy in...

BUT NOW....I've got a new job. Started on July 12th. I'm still a government contractor - but now I work for a different alphabet agency, and am working with some really cool people. And for the first time I think I'm finally in the job I've been looking for. I'm actually, finally, officially working as an EDITOR...not a writer/editor, not a project manager, not as a copy writer...but an EDITOR. I spend my days reading and editing some really interesting documents. Everything from 500 word articles for an e-newsletter to a 148 page document to be printed as a booklet. It is so very cool. I've wanted to be an editor ever since I graduated from college, and while I've had some interesting - even fun and challenging - jobs, they've never really "just" been editing jobs....Now I'm a Sr. Technical Editor. I'm happy.

Other happenings:

a) Started Voice Over lessons!! Woot!! More on that later.

b) Took Gomez to the mountains for the first time - as seen in the photographic evidence, he loved it!!
