How Did Day 2 Go?

​It actually went really well. The thing I wrote looked and sounded great. And then I met some of the other people that work at the center.

I find that I’m really starting to get the hang of this. As I said in the previous post, it isn’t as crazy as Farm and Ranch, but I kind of like that. And I have to admit that I have some great ideas for F and R as a result of my work at Branigan. 
But then I’m worried that they may not work as well.

Well, I won’t know unless I try, right? Right.

In the meantime, I’m watching Cake Wars with my family. Most of these cakes they do make no sense to me sometimes. They definitely take the saying “go big or go home” quite literally on this show. But is size really that important when it comes to cake? I mean, it’s going to get eaten either way.

Also, what do they do with the cakes that don’t win? Does the crew that shoots the show eat them? Do they let them sit there and get stale? Or do they toss them into the garbage?

…Jesus, it’s amazing what goes through my brain sometimes. 

Volunteering Day 1

​Today, I started my second volunteer job at the Branigan Cultural Center, which is a museum located in downtown Las Cruces. 

It’s in a white Pueblo Revival-style building; at one point in time it was the public library. It still has that sort of library smell to it.

I found myself just working on an upcoming exhibit. And it was nice and quiet, compared to the hustle and bustle of Farm and Ranch. And since it was a nice day, I walked to a nearby burger place and got a quick lunch.

Thursday is my next day, and we shall see what happens. But tomorrow I go work out at the Aquatic Center and continue on the green chile paper. 

On Love and Other Things

Well, happy (belated) Valentine’s Day. I hope everyone had a wonderful day celebrating with your friends, your family, and/or your significant other(s). I personally enjoyed it.

But having been single now since 2010 or so (Gasp! Social suicide!), I find that I’ve had a lot of time to reflect on love. I have come to the conclusion that love is much different today than it was a long time ago.
