I caved and went to Giacomo's for lunch. I hadn't been in almost two weeks. I ran into my friend Jess who I saw this morning at the Social Media Breakfast.

Today at the Social Media Breakfast I finally got to try chocolate from Chocolatier Blue that is based in Camden, ME. The caramel and the peanut butter & jelly chocolates were very yummy! It was fun to see friends and listen to the great speakers Maggi from Magpie CreativeChocolatier Blue and Kristen from Maine Maven.

Day 38 - Something Different

I ran around doing errands all day and then went to work. Something I realized today is that I don't mind going to work. I actually laugh a lot while at work which included a funny team meeting today. Our boss was running late to the meeting so one of my coworkers made her directions to find us. (We were just around the corner) Sure there are frustrations but overall I can say I like my job and would like to advance at the company.
PS - I realize I haven't really been doing very different stuff every day but every day I reflect on the day. If you actually thought about what you do every day, do you stick with a routine? I have been busy with school and work, etc so I have been distracted. Hopefully next week I can share some news to explain further why I've been so distracted.

Day 39 - Something Different

I would like to point out that something different from normal routine was the fact that I didn't go out for lunch or dinner today. I've been trying to save money and that was the first thing I cut from the budget. It hasn't been easy and that is why you haven't seen any Giacomo posts although I really miss going. I may cave and go once a week. I realized I was spending a lot of money going out to eat and thought it would be better to eat what I have at home and empty the pantry.

Day 40 - Something Different

Monday was kind of blah for me. Nothing exciting happened. I worked on some stock piling, won't need to buy Q-tips or toilet paper for a while. I didn't do my homework although tonight I will try to start it. Its my final week before break for over a month!

Day 41 - Something Different

Today I watched C-Span...something I never do. I was trying to find the football game and couldn't find it so I watched this. It was interesting to hear Hugh Grant talk about being a phone-hacking victim.
