Motivation

quotes from Steve Jobs TED Talk "It was awful tasting medicine, but I guess the patient needed it. "

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary"

Jan. 4th

Good things for Friday
1. I had survived my first *two day* week back to work
2. I also survived my first fire drill at my job. Don't worry, there wasn't a real fire, just an accidental pull. Someone on the second floor of the building had apparently just moved into a new cubicle and was unfamiliar with it's layout - which included a fire alarm... which eventually resulted in a fire-drill. It brought be back to my college days, except the alarm wasn't at midnight, and I wasn't wearing my pajamas.
3. I got a little further on my mission of getting a hold on my loans today, and I found out that I will not receive a late penalty for paying my loan a few days late, just when it is 90 days late. WHEW!
4. I hung out with friends, had a delicious dinner of yogurt marinated chicken, wild rice with apricot, and carrots with mint.
5. We also watched a documentary on happiness,

 http://movies.netflix.com/WiMovie/Happy/70243161?locale=en-US

 which feels appropriate at the beginning of the year, and at the beginning of my life where I start having to pay people back for the loans that got me my education. Seeing that poorer people then myself are rich with relationships gives me hope, and a reminder to keep in touch with the people I love.

Like family, friends, the elysianettes, neighbors, colleages, and alumni.

I definitely love whoever reads this blog *wink*
