I am so demotivated that I don't even want to meet with my boss today to talk about the possibility of a raise. I.E., mo' money, the only reason I freaking work in the first place. How bad is that?

In other news, I finally got around to reteaching myself Java with a little Swing action yesterday. It's awesome that Macs come out of the factory with the JDK already installed. It is also awesome that you can make your terminal window any color you want, and can even make it semi-transparent so you can see windows underneath it. Zaal (my PowerBook) is completely kicking ass and taking names.

...I have no clue? I sent in responses to three canvass letters for three different jobs, and haven't heard back from any of them yet. I'm not really worried about it yet, though. It's the state, after all, biggest bureaucracy in the land. I'm thinking I won't hear back for like another six months.

You're absolutely right about that. I took a state exam, got on the list for the Mid Hudsom Valley region and then.... nothing. My Dad said it's not uncommon at all to go six months to a year, especially with so many people from the state retiring this year as Pataki makes his way out.

The state takes for*evar*. They told me it'd be about 6 weeks before paperwork went through and then maybe I'll get to know if I got the job or not.
