An Interesting Year - Political Correctness

The ridiculous censorship of political correctness makes it impossible to report facts.
The ridiculous censorship of political correctness makes it impossible to report facts. There is plenty that needs to be said about my last year and a quarter working in adult education in the 3rd Ward of Houston, Texas, the largest ghetto in the city of Houston. It was a very important experience. It will take some creativity to report the details. I have left my teaching position (which also included systems administration and hardware maintenance.
I recently changed jobs. I joined a group of artists and artisans (sculptors, writers, painters and musicians, so far) who are sharing a huge warehouse complex. I am the office manager for a very successful group. These guys that I work with include a bronze sculptor (he does a lot of lost wax, but many other methods, too), an artist who cuts and works sheet metal and much more (not just plasma cutting), and a stone (not just marble) sculptor / mason (he carves stone and applies his work in many different ways, including sculptures). These guys mostly support themselves through the funeral industry (50%), but they also do some awesome commissioned work for doing monuments and sculptures. We have lots of work for the City of Houston and other important buyers.
I am doing a lot of Photoshop (creative suite), website editing, AutoCAD, and general office stuff. I'm starting to do some writing as well, and I do a lot of technical problem solving, especially file conversions and electronic data management. I am getting home WAYYYY earlier and am able to actually have some time to attend to my web efforts. I miss my internet friends SOOOOOO MUCH!! I know thaT seemS RIDICULOUS, BUT i REALLY miss you guys.
I work from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. I have a PALM and I am eager to get back to enjoying AuthorsDen and my AD friends.
I fell relieved . . .
