I've started having bad dreams and anxiety about work again. I'll be heading into work on Tuesday after having only worked 24 hours in the last 48 days. Thats about 30 minutes a day. I'm not sure what project I'll be on. I still have plenty of work on UEWR. My line managers seem keen to move me to Cobra Dane Upgrade(CDU), but the new project manager on UEWR was my line boss at Beale and he insists I stay on UEWR.
The driver I loaded to get The Sims 2 working a couple months ago broke a bunch of compatibilities with older, DirectX 6&7 games. I downloaded the new driver today which seems to have fixed everything.
I spent 45 minutes working on Star Wars today. Emily and Justin have decided to continue the adventure so I am providing them a story. I'm having trouble, and have always had trouble writing dialogue. I think that conversations don't come very natural to me, so I find them difficult to write. Everyone seems to end up talking like I would, as opposed to what they should really say.
In my long term memory, I suspect 2004 will stand out as the year I spent at Beale. I have several other memories from the year, but nothing of the magnitude of that. I remember teaching Aiyre to swim this summer. I remember taking Aiyre to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. I remember going to Reno NV. I remember football and brats at Fitz's house. Happy New Year!
