Good news!

I've been waiting and waiting to hear back from a job interview I had that I felt had gone well. Last week, I called and learned that I was going to get the position, but that it had been frozen for financial reasons. Today, I find a posting for the SAME job, SAME company- at a different location. You better believe I applied as fast as I could!


Ooooh good luck!

Just chatted with my little bro for like an hour. He's the only family member I feel comfortable talking to and he moved to Florida a few weeks ago, and I miss him. Not that I saw him that much when he was here, but he made things like mandatory family gatherings so much more bearable. Anyway, it was good to shoot the shiitake with him for a little while.

I emailed my advisor for help with a bad situation (as in, if things don't get resolved, I don't graduate, and it's pretty much completely out of my control) and he said he is on it and that I'm not to worry about it.

Of course I'm still worried about it, but I appreciate the aid. I'm sure the university has some sort of gift prohibition policy or I would totally send that dude a fruit basket. (Do people still send people fruit baskets? Am I like 100?)

Woah, c&s, I hope everything works out ok!!

I freed up half the disk space on my laptop. It was almost completely full. Things are going much faster now, which makes thesis writing easier. Yay!

I powered through a ton of actual work at my job. I usually just answer phones, but I love when I have more to do. Today was all printing and filing and writing and reviewing. Love it!

Hey there twinsie!! I also am having a massive day. By my count I did 15,000 words of editing today, which is not my record, but then again I'm not done yet either, so I may break it. ALSO, I had no internet in my home office after 10, so had to work in a fumey stinky noisy mechanic shop with my husband coming in and out and saying things like "can you believe they won't refund the dinglehopper valve because Fulano put it in the hoopdyhoo gasket and...." and then going "oh right you're trying to work, aren't you." Yes, indeed. Where the hoopdyhoo my earplugs went, i do not know, but i miss them dearly.
thank god i'm at home (enough fumes and interruptions already) and the internet is on again. for now.

Best thing today was when the person at Clover said "Beer for Pi." That beer was amazing and meant I could not think about work for 3 hours - I had spanish class, so a good reason to be off email for a bit! And even though I did my homework after the beer but before class and messed up a lot on it, I had a great time in class!

I have really amazing roommates. Just had a lovely long conversation with one of them. She's one of the smartest, deepest thinkers I've ever known. Just amazing.

I am leaving for the airport in a few hours. I'm spending the next three days in Nice with one of my best friends who is working in Nice right now, and then I'll take the train to Paris to hang out with another friend. So excited to go to France! So excited to hang out with my friends! So excited to have beach weather!

I saw my down-the-road neighbour who I rarely see (apparently because he works abroad!) and we ended up having a lovely chat. Most of my neighbours are students who I might see twice before they move out, but this guy's been around for years, we just don't cross paths often.

I love both of these posts. You both have made my day.

Seeing three beagles going for walks on my way to work. One guy has two beagles and another guy has one (named snoopy, awww) and they were all sniffing each other. Good stuff.

A new Asian supermarket opened today right at the top of my road. It is fantastic - I had to restrain myself from buying All The Things.

Getting the last pint of Van Leeuwen salted caramel ice cream. It's like frozen crack.

The other health food store near me that is further away gives you a free rice dream pie when you spend $20. Totally worth the 20minute walk vs the 15min walk.

AND I won a fancy pants bottle of vanilla from jdfunks on twitter. Basically, today is rad!
