So I haven't actually posted about this (or posted anything, really OOPS) in the last few months but I got a new job. Which is starting in a BIG way in oh, about 5 hours.

I'm going to be working on Cruise ships (specifically, for my first contract, I'll be on the Diamond Princess, which sails out of Yokohama). I'm going to be working for an Art Auction/Gallery (we're on over 100 ships and HOMG I'm about to go into the company promotion and just AH)

So, for the past 10 days, I've been in Miami at a CRAZY intense training (as in up at 6:30 every morning, eight hours of lectures, seminars, TESTs, both written and oral, meeting some of artists we're working with and more. And then usually another 2 or 3 hours of study in the evenings in our class groups. It has been nuts!!! I feel like I'm back during finals week in college! Possibly worse, cause this involved copious amounts of public speaking in front of 70+ people on a semi-regular basis :-p)

And I just found out about 2 hours ago that my ship assignment came a bit earlier than most, so I'm shipping out today rather than tomorrow or Saturday like everyone else so I'm a Here's your flight details, you're going to be on a flight this evening, oh and you'll start work immediately when you arrive on the ship. Which should be about three hours after you land in Narita :---p. GAAAAAH!!!

But I'm packed, have an hour or two before the shuttle arrives for the airport and thought I should probably let people know what I'm up to, especially since it sounds like internet will be severely limited. We'll see how that goes :-p

But, job, YAY. Travel, super yay! And JAPAN! (it's been almost exactly five years!!! I've missed it so sooo much!) so yeah...That's my news.

Catch you all on the flip side!!
