On my new job and my feelings about Barack Obama

Should I just plunge right in as if I have not been gone? Or make awkward apologies for what a bad blog upkeeper I am? No one reads anyway. Therefore, I guess it doesn’t matter!

So, I like my new job. I am still working for the state. Which as far as I can tell is a wise move considering the economy. Luckily, for me, child abuse goes on a rise when the economy suffers. Yay! for job security. Or. Wait. Don’t worry that was meant to be sarcastic.

My new job is working with families who need continued help with CPS. That is all I am going to say about it. Working in child abuse puts me in an awkward spot. So, I don’t like to talk about it much in a public arena like my blog. However, what I do love is when I get myspace requests from people that say, “Down with CPS,” or something like that. Why do those people think I would want to be their myspace friend?

The good news is that Obama is going to be president in January. The bad new is that eventually he will do something that will make me go, “Dude why is he president?” Sometimes, while listening to NPR I will hear stories about Obama or this struggling economy and I will get misty eyed because Obama brings hope. I do not expect Obama to fix all the problems in the world, but I do think that he gives people motivation to want to fix things. He is very JFK like that. He is a symbol for change. That is all any of us need is just the idea that change can happen. He isn’t the end, Barack Obama is the means.

Now then, enough of this political brouhaha. Don't worry. I continue to be single, and I continue to live in Austin. So, you haven't missed out on much about me.

PS the security word verification for my comment was "dookie." I feel judged by blogger.
