Man, have I been slacking on the blog front.

Ow.

Rock Hudson, about to find out what February feels like from James Dean.

Anyways, I thought I’d get a kick in the pants (or punch in the groin.) and write a little bit with onset of warmer weather. February seems to always have been the odd-month-out. I’m pretty sure something that comes with this month does something to the chemical balance in my brain, seeing as I always feel like I’ve been donkey-kicked in the chest by the end of it. Onwards and upwards, as I say! We shall not tarry here!

So, this all brings me to my next point. Seeing as my internship is coming to an end this May, I’ve decided to take it upon myself and adventure. I’ve called my friend Kasey in Hawaii, and (hopefully.) in the next couple of days I’ll be able to get a hold of her again. I’m going to give living in Hawaii a shot, and I’m going to try and live on a boat. (Or shoddy apartment, either way.) However, this might raise a few eyebrows for a couple of reasons:

  • I know nothing of boating. (except being on the rowing team in high school, but that doesn’t count.)
  • Odin needs to find some kind of employment whilst over there. (Blergh, I hate being an adult.)

So I might swing a job on the main island in the University of Hawaii, or just bum it out for a year or so. So far, my future is a bit of a blank check. Tentative plans all around, but adventures nonetheless.

 

Fortune.

Got to start somewhere, right?

On that note, I’ve also thrown in a couple of applications to LEGO in hopes of getting employment for their corporate site. (Since it’s been my dream to work with LEGO since, well, I don’t know, FOREVER.) This application is a bit of transition from the Hawaii idea, but it’s also a part of my new “get-up-and-go-adventure” attitude. I needed a jump-start, so I thought to myself “Well, I haven’t done anything ridiculous in a while, so this would be a good place to start.” I mean, why not learn a new language and work for an international company that makes creative toys? Hell, I’ve only been wanting to work for Lego since I became acquainted with them.

Anyways, so the idea so far is to throw in a couple of applications to get on Lego’s radar in hopes of becoming seen as an “interested” applicant. Meanwhile, I learn some languages (Spanish and Dutch primarily.) while I work on polishing up the ole’ resumé while I work a tech job here in Ohio for the next year or so. Fingers crossed, things will start pointing in the right direction. 🙂

 

Onwards!

Onwards!
