DeCon was great! As always, and even more so this year. Record-breaking attendance, and great participation. I had a lot of fun at the Tom Smith concert – with plans to get his kids album for a friend (didn’t have cash at the time). The parties were fun, the panels well received. A good time indeed.

Getting some movement on the job search front. Fingers crossed. Digitized a new newspaper at CML this week – The Columbus Challenger, so that’ll be going up soon. The OhioDIG meeting got postponed again, though.

On the homefront, I had to take my car in for repairs, and will have to again when I get a job sorted. Fortunately, it was the regular battery, not the hybrid battery, but still it isn’t a normal battery. Myers is replacing my furnace tomorrow morning, so I stayed with friends last night, and have electric heaters tonight. But hey, at least it looks like the blizzard is missing Columbus this weekend.

Consistently cold weather has settled in. Bits of snow floating around occasionally in the air. There was even ice in the parking lot yesterday. Welcome to winter.

I had a great time last week celebrating the New Year with all my friends. Games, and food, and good times were had by all. My volunteer groups both met as well, to get plans for the new year rolling. All in all, things are looking great for 2016.

Now that we’re out of holiday season, I’m hoping to hear back from my applications, and apply for whatever I can find. I’ve even started a spreadsheet to keep better track. I’m also going to back to volunteering at CML’s Local History and Genealogy department to get some more rolls of the Ohio State Journal Index scanned, and working my way through some webinars.

Halfway through my first book of 2016, as well (Elrics’ were both technically last year): The Summer Tree by Guy Gavriel Key. It’s weird and intriguing… and weird. 😉

Lots of hanging out with friends this past weekend, and it was good. Going to an arcade, a bowling alley, and a very cheesy 80s movie this weekend. It should also be good, though not so sure I’m going to be much use at the bowling alley.

Found more jobs to apply to, hoping to hear something positive soon. A bit frustrated that a lot of the internships coming across my inbox are for minorities only. A lot of the scholarships are that way, too. Or they’re for full-time students only. I’m one credit per semester shy of qualifying. Ah well, still looking around at things.

The store is gearing up for inventory, and still bleeding employees. So, I’m getting plenty of hours, and some PTO. Good for the budget on both counts. I’m back on 7am shifts, so good for my afternoons, not so good for my sleeping. Ah well, that’s what weekends are for, eh?

Two more weeks til spring. 🙂

Rich got the job offer today. So that’s cool. He starts soon, and then benefits start a couple weeks later. He’s back in QA, where he enjoys being. So that’ll be good for him, and us. 🙂

Had fun with friends this weekend, and managed to avoid con crud a second time. A quiet weekend this week, and then more celebrations with friends the week after for Valentine’s Day. Also, a new Die Hard movie, totally want to see that. 😉

Filed taxes this week. Happy refund as usual. Yay, numbers.

No new solid job leads yet. I need to learn more web programming. But then it also becomes a matter of proof that I have the skills. Yay, fun. Keep on swimming.
