Full workday, relaxing evening
Relatively quick blog entry tonight, because I have big plans for tomorrow and I need to go to bed.
This morning, we had another staff meeting. The discussion involved a lot less technical jargon and acronyms than the last time, so I could follow it a lot better. I did not bring up the subject of MySQL, because Lee had recommended that I submit the idea to Jason via email.
Today, from 10:30 A.M. until about 11:30 or so, we had a volunteer appreciation party in our dining room. I eagerly took the opportunity to put the technical skills I learned in InterVarsity to use by setting up a laptop computer and an LCD projector. I also went upstairs, exported the slideshow Shelley had made in Windows Movie Maker as a video file, burned it to a CD, and brought it downstairs and played it. Shelley was very grateful.
I spent the afternoon helping out in the Cuban-Haitian Program office, which is around the corner and down the hall from the one where I usually work. Lee was more or less caught up with data entry and things, and the CHP office was way behind, so I agreed to help them out. It meant that I did more of the same data entry that I’d been doing, only in a different room with different people, people with whom I can practice Spanish. I like practicing Spanish.
When I got home, I spent my free time attempting to work on Bridging the Spheres, and succeeded in determining what a few more pieces of the plot should be and making notes on them in my “Plot Notes” file. It was relaxing, but I wish it could have been more.
