New Journal Name!  
So, I gave up over a year ago on changing the name of my journal. All of the decent "Jimbo" names were taken, including the one I wanted, "Just Jimbo." I even had that as the 'title' of my journal: "Just Jimbo, but that was already taken."

By now you've probably noticed that I HAVE changed my name here. It seems like some of my friends were paying closer attention than I was, because yesterday I was gifted with a name change token *and* was sent a note that "just_jimbo" was had been deleted and purged, and I'd better snap it up while I could.

Thanks, MM, for caring! You have every reason to ignore me after all this time and all that drama, and you still hang in and encourage me to keep blogging. I really appreciate it.

I loved the whole 'S.W.A.T.' thing, believe me. And I loved that Brian had fun with it when he created our journals. But I was always a little embarrassed by having Jim Street as my moniker, and now my LJ has the name I wanted.

What a cool present to receive on my anniversary!hit counter

Hey, Lillian, good to see you! Are you writing at all?

Sadly, not much writing these days. I'm lucky to get a couple paragraphs into my personal journal.

Fall is our busiest time at work. And as we get nearer to the end of the semester and of the year it gets crazy. Everyone's trying to wrap things up before the holidays.

I also applied for another job on campus. I had to scramble to get my application and resume together. The last time I had to do that was 20 years ago! Thank goodness I'm a bit of a pack rat and kept copies of old job applications and resumes.

I have my heart set on getting that job. It means leaving my union *which I really love*. I'm a campus steward and I don't want to leave a mess. So, I have to tidy things up for the next person. I'm already thinking of ways to get involved in the union I'm moving to. :-)

And I'm on one the busiest faculty committees on campus. My new job will put me in a different classification and I'll no longer be able to serve on the committees. So, I'll have to prepare for that too.

Changes! I love it! It's gotten my energy flowing. Hopefully I can channel some of that into more writing in the new year!

How about you?
