Crack Corner, Minneapolis

08.20.2004 · Posted in Work

Well, I’m at work again today, so that means I survived the first day. I actually had to work late on my first day – something that I think is quite common around here. Not a bad thing at all; a lot is expected of you at this agency – I just have to learn to accommodate.

I went to grab a coffee and muffin across the street this morning and was hounded for money and cigarettes. I refer to the address of the agency’s building as “Crack Corner” because there’s enough of it sold on this corner to give everyone in the city at least one hit off the pipe. It’s unfortunate, but it’s a nice reminder that I should be grateful for where I am.

The people at work are all very cool. I think I’ll be able to learn a lot here, as well as bring much of my experience to the table.

Anyway, back to work. Have a great Friday!
