So I'm still trying to find a balance between work and getting back to fandom, cause man I miss fandom. However, I can say things are going well. I got promoted to Genius at work, so I'm working full time now. The best part however, is that they are going to send me to Cupertino for two weeks of training in April. I'm so excited. I've also realized how much of a nerd I am because when I tell my friends they say, "Cupertino? Where's that?" and I have to explain that it's near San Francisco and part of Silicon Valley. But the point is, being the mac nerd I am, I'm really excited. Plus, before they send me, I get a week of studying at home. There is a lot of stuff to study, but I'm thinking I can work some writing time in there somewhere. At least I hope so.

By the way, does anyone know how the LJ strike went? I was going to post the other day, but then I saw stuff about the strike and figured I could hold off for a bit.

So I had an incredible day at work yesterday. Basically I really like my job, but I've been wanting to move up, do more tech support and eventually start working at the Genius bar. Well I'd been talking to one of the managers and he was going to move me into a position to assist the Genius' so I could learn more starting next week. However yesterday they suddenly asked me to start shadowing one of the Geniuses at the iPod bar. We've actually been short one Genius for a while since one of our guys moved and transfered to another store, and one of the other Genius' has had his honney moon planned forever and is going in the next month. So it turns out that they are going to accelerate my training some so that I can help cover the shifts that are going to be empty. It's a ton of fun and I'm so excited (even if I did have to handle an iPhone that was dropped in the toilet yesterday). I doubt I'll be an official Genius for a while, probably just helping out with the iPods and iPhones because that's fairly easy, but I'm really looking forward to it.

Oh, and tonight's the Caucus, why don't I live in Iowa so I could join the fun?
