New Job

Been a while since I even sketched. I've been at a new job over a week and there's lots to learn. Not an early bird, I'm trying to get to bed earlier so I can wake up easier and have time to make my coffee that I need to get my brain in gear. I haven't been to the gym in probably as long, so I made an effort today. Hope to get to the gym at least 3 times a week, that should help get my energy level up, too.

Now that I have income, I got a new computer that I was needing but it comes with Windows 7, 64-bit which means drivers don't exist for my printer and scanner and my old programs won't transfer to this operating system. I went with Win7 because that's what I'm using at work but I had a week of computer issues at work because of Win7, too. If you can avoid it, Win 7 is not ready. I couldn't avoid it at home and it will resolve itself eventually but it'll probably cost me more money. I'm not giving any more than necessary to Microsoft so I went with Open Office.


  1. Hi, Julie, I commented here, but it doesn't show. CONGRATULATIONS on getting the job! Hope it is everything you hope for. Life can get more comfortable now!

    I just got a new computer last fall when the old one died. I feel lucky to have Win7 instead of Vista, though there are problems.

  2. Hi Julie. Congratulations. Missed you one the Hunts. I just ordered a new laptop. It has Win 7 so now I'm worried. I have XP on my home computer. I hadn't heard anything bad about 7 but I guess there always is. Too bad we can't choose which one we want each time. Hope to see you back to hunting soon.

  3. Hi Angela & Jeanne, Thanks for looking in on me. Scanner & printer drivers resolved within two weeks. Still needing a photo editing program for tweaking brightness and cropping.
