Work! Around the house and otherwise.

Today was my first day of work on my own! Much more exciting than shadowing someone else, for sure. I also talked to Nick a little bit about upcoming classes. There's another one in two weeks, but it's M-F, all day, which obviously wouldn't work for me. Nick mentioned something about coming to what I can, and him training me when I'm available outside of the scheduled class times. That would be super awesome! Not sure that it would result in an immediate pay raise, but it would be spectacular just to be doing a little more than what is in the scope of my responsibility right now.

And work at home! I have had so little time lately to clean the house, and I'm just really unhappy with the state of my living quarters right now. So I have been doing some important things around the house this evening that have been pretty neglected lately. Most notably, I cleaned the tub! It's finally bath season again, and the state of my tub made it... not very inviting.

Since a picture of the tub would not be very exciting, I took a picture of my amazing shower curtain. Partly because I really love it, and partly because there's a clean(er) tub behind it. (Day 22)

I have also made huge progress with my FreeRice lately! I have donated over 85,000 grains so far. Admittedly, that's not a whole lot, and I'm still super behind where I should be right now (1,000 grains per day since March. Yikes!), but over 70,000 of those grains have been donated since September 1st. Not bad for less than 40 days.

I made up a weekend to-do list last night, and have crossed off 8 of 25 items so far. I know that doesn't seem like a whole lot, but considering that's on top of an 8-hour work day today, I'm pretty happy with that number!

The Greek Festival is this weekend. Tomorrow is the last day, and I really wish I could make it down there, but I just don't think I will. On top of the cleaning I have to do around the house, I will be absolutely swamped with school this upcoming week. German oral exam on Monday. Math test on Tuesday. Programming test on Wednesday. German essay due on Thursday. And that's on top of the homework I have due. I would like to get a head start on that rather than spending money on tasty food when I need to lose weight as it is. So, since there will be another Greek Festival next year at the same time, I suppose I will do the responsible thing and stay home.

I think I'm going to head out. I have a lot more to do before bed tonight! Ciao!!

  1. I just love your shower curtain! I saw it in The Big Bang Theory about 2 years ago and decided I must have it! Well.. I don't, yet. But I will, one day:-)
