"If anyone can make it happen, you can."

Someone (actually two someones) said that to me tonight.  It felt good.  I'm lucky to have wonderful friends who have confidence and faith in me.  Sometimes I forget that I do, and I'm sorry about that.

The holidays were much better than I expected them to be.  My nephews continue to be a source of amazement for me.  Seeing them grow and change is a wonderful thing.  They're so damn smart.

My folks got me a matte cutter for Christmas, so it'll shorten the time it takes for me to matte prints by half (or more-- less? more? wait...).  They wanted to get me the digital camera I've been pining over, but it just wasn't economically feasible with everything going on right now.  Honestly, I think I would have felt WAY too guilty if they had got it, so it works out better this way.  I'll start saving a percentage of my tips and will make it happen by summer, hopefully.

The job is nowhere near as horrid as I expected it to be.  Honestly, everyone there is awesome.  They've asked me to stay on after the holidays.  I start waiting tables in about 10 hours.  Not my dream job, but it's not telemarketing or Taco Bell. :)

So far 2005 is off to a pretty decent start, I think.
