It is 5:02pm on Thursday night. I am here in the studio, lights off in the hallways and the doors to the offices are closed and locked. Justin Reynolds is the only other person here and he is in studio 2 working on his shift. It's quiet. I only hear the gentle hum of my computer speaker and the audio from All Things Considered. It's very quiet considering that pledge drive ended last night. There were ringing phones, chattering, open doors, loud buzzing and some stress. Tonight, none of that.
I like these nights. I like to be alone with my mic and you listening on the other end. I like the relaxed atmosphere of the darkened halls and the little red lights on my Klotz board. I especially like these quiet, intimate nights when the days are long and I can leave at 7pm with the sun up. The feeling leads me into a soft evening and a sort of drifty dinner; When each bite is like the first and half the plate leaves me content.
My job is romantic at times.
Goodnight and thank you for pledging.

OK. I can use pledge drive as a reason that I haven't posted...but I believe that excuses are the building blocks of failure. So...I will just say that Gillian Coldsnow's blog is WAY more interesting and updated than mine. Because I am and ENTJ (that personality test stuff is great!) I will learn from this and double my efforts to succeed. So, I am going to have Gillian show me how she gets all those cool pictures, pop up links and photos on the side of her blog. Copying is the flattery right?

Just in time for Spring!
When you hear me giggle a little on the air, it was because I just watched this. BUNNIES And if you want to feel even better, listen to our story on dwarf rabbits being released back into their environment. Tiny Bunnies Invade Ephrata!

My supervisor, Mary Hawkins, said something to me that made me stop in my tracks. "
"The opposite of Love isn't Hate, it is Apathy." This is particularly poignant to me in my life right now.
Hate implies you care - I mean, enough to think about a person, mull over things in your mind and let's face it...there is a sort of attraction there. Taming of the Shrew anyone? But apathy means no thoughts, nothingness, no energy...apathy to me means indifference and that means a cold heart. Apathy is true rejection friends not hate.
So think about this in your personal life. Then think about this as our pledge drive nears! $$$ I had to mention this!! Are you a lover of NWPR? Then pledge. Are you are hater of NWPR...you can still pledge and you think about us...you've at least listened! Are you apathetic about NWPR?

We took personality tests at work. This is part of our plan to see how we work as a group. Great stuff. Here is where you can take the test. Take Test So what are you? Here is what we are!
Sueann Ramella = ENFJ (other ENFJs above photo)
Robin Rilette = INFP
Gillian Coldsnow = ISTJ
Nate Prudhon = INTJ
Scott Weatherly = ENTJ (which is hilarious because he is our operations manager!)
Since this is my blog, let me talk about me. ENFJ are called the Teacher Idealist or Sage. The description says:
Teachers expect the very best of those around them, and this expectation, usually expressed as enthusiastic encouragement, motivates action in others and the desire to live up to those expectations. ENFJs have a charming characteristic of taking for granted that people will meet their expectations and do what they command.
- Yup. I just don't know why people don't listen to me. I am suggesting things for their own benefit!
Another description: ENFJs have tremedous power to manipulate others with their phenomenal interpersonal skills and salesmanship. It is usually not meant to harm.
- I use my power for good.
ENFJs are blessed through introverted intuition with clarity of perception in the inner, unconcious world.
-My inner voice. She's a smart lady but I ignored her a lot recently. That was a bad idea and now I will never ignore my introverted intuition again!
Well, enough about me. What about you?
