Onwards I go, swimming through a pile of introspection and positive encouragement towards a goal and a better sense of what to do with myself and how I (and other humans as well) function.

This career exploration course is wicked handy. Taking myself seriously, from taking the time to figure out my own issues, to investing in or appreciating my skills, has never been a strong point for me. I've always put myself at a distant third compared to my friends and my work and plowed on - making it this far due to a level of competence/ability that I've never acknowledged and am only now beginning to realize I possess as I look around at other capable people, professionals, grown-ups even, and realize I'm standing shoulder-to-shoulder with them.

Only now am I understanding how much better of I would have been if I'd sunk my brain into some post-secondary 10 years ago. But, what is, is, and now it's time to take hold of what I've got and turn it into something that will let me survive and thrive.

While I set myself up to achieve goals in terms of education and career, I'm also taking aim at the things that make me happy and satisfy me. Namely community building and games. That's taking the form of VCON this weekend so off I go tomorrow with the kids in tow to geek out and have some fun.

After that, there is a plan in the works to revive the VGG. Mister is in school now, this gives me time during the day, so I'll be talking to a new admin crew to see about breathing some life into it. This time I'm going to take it seriously though - watching what AJ has done with the Carnival Band is phenomenal. Taking the business of running the organization properly, investing time into the skills of doing just that, and carrying on in a professional and businesslike manner have served her well and grown the band into a recognized entity in the city.

I feel bad about how poorly the VGG was handled and want to get it rolling again, properly this time.

Whoo boy, I do like my plate full don't I?

Seriously folks, wow.

I was all freaked out about some complications in my housing situation yesterday and didn't get any shuteye until around 3am. This left me sleeping through my alarm, crawling groggily out of bed 30 minutes late, and crossing my fingers as I carried on as best I could manage.

Somehow I kept it all together through my class, then I met up with my brother and we went out for something to eat. Cobb Salad. Yum! This is new to me. Well, the name more than the concoction itself. Mixing veggies with eggs, meat, and bacon is old-hat here at home, but seeing it done somewhere else and under a name that was discussed as though it's a common thing to be found in other places was... exciting!

I shall endeavour to find more of this 'Cobb Salad' elsewhere.

In other news, VCON is this coming weekend. I still need to get in touch with a volunteer driver to help me transport a car-load of stuff so I'm not lugging it about on Transit like a daft beast of burden. But, it will be interesting to get out to it for the weekend with the kids in tow.

But, for now it is into bed I shall tumble - weary and in need of rest.

Here's hoping I get some actual sleep this time!
