I don’t think I’ve blogged at all this week, so on my way home today I resolved to write one as soon as I got home. Well, that was about 45 minutes ago, and I didn’t start writing because I had to read the last two chapters of a book. I think you can all find it in your hearts to forgive me.
Anyways, what have I been up to? Well! I GOT A JOB!!! Hooray!! It’s not exactly the job I wanted (I wanted a chemical engineering job), but I think I’m really going to like it! I’m a research assistant in a biochemistry lab, and tomorrow I get to harvest some cells. Seriously, they call it HARVESTING. I’m not sure why, but I’ll find out tomorrow! Tuesday was my first day and so I just finished my third day! Everyone is super nice and friendly and helpful! I’ve been feeling pretty stupid at work, because as a chemical engineer I wasn’t forced to take any biology, so I have no idea what’s going on (yet)! But today I felt pretty good because I actually helped someone! I totally solved a computer problem – the computer wouldn’t boot up Windows and was in MS-Dos…and seriously, how many people know how to do anything is Dos these days? But I figured it out and I tell you, I felt a sense of accomplishment at least until 11:30 a.m.
But Lindsay, you get off at 4:30(ish), couldn’t you have blogged after work? The answer is yesish/noish. My husband and I have started up a competition – who can work out the most/lose the most weight. We started because even though we weren’t in bad shape, we were starting down a bad path of not exercising and eating unhealthily. We are in week 5 right now and it is a dead heat because he has won 2 weeks and I have won 2 weeks (it is a 10 week long competition, and whoever wins the most weeks gets to spend $100 guilt free on whatever he/she wants – he wants to buy a fly reel and I want to buy books). So when we get home from work, we go work out, eat dinner, and then go to sleep shortly after we eat.
Admittedly, I do have time to blog between dinner and sleep, but sometimes you just need lazy time. I am also dreadfully behind on my NaNoWriMo progress. I for sure will not finish my 50K words, but next year I’ll do it!
Also, who watched America’s Next Top Model last night? I was so mad when Annaleigh got the boot! Personally I thought she was the nicest of the 3, the most sincere and the least annoying. And honestly I did not think that Samantha or McKey did very well on their runway, but whatever. I guess I’m happy that McKey won because Samantha was just WAY too annoying for me. But I have confidence that Annaleigh will make something for herself, because I thought she was way too charming to just disappear.
Hmm, that’s it for now – I’ll see if I can steal my husband’s mac away from him this weekend and make a vlog or something. About what, I have no idea, but it’s just so much fun to make videos! Maybe I’ll just jump around for 5 minutes and post that. Who knows?
