Wow, three posts in as many days, I’m on a roll here, people! Granted, I can’t take credit for the first two. Those posts have some really incredible authors and I just felt like I should share them. :)
Today’s post is just playing catch-up because I didn’t post for like two (or three?) months and part of the point of this blog is for my family to be able to keep up with me.
So, what have I been up to?
Well, work. And more work. I’ve been working anywhere from 20-35 hours a week at Panera, my good ole’ high school (college) job. Make that money, ya know? It’s not my favorite job, but I’m lucky to have it.
I decided to stay with Dr. Grau’s lab for another year and have since been “promoted” of sorts. I still do coding and probably will until the day I leave the lab, but now I also handle a lot of the editing, will eventually keep track of other research assistants’ hours, plan schedules, etc, essentially a management position. (I also get to order office supplies when we run out, but by the looks of one desk in the office, I don’t think we’ll need paper clips or sharpies for like 10 years…)
Anyways, being Dr. Grau’s coordinator means that I actually have a paid position at Kent, so I get to make a little money while I’m at school. It’ll probably all go right into my loan payments honestly.
Last weekend, I was finally able to get at least some of my TFS family together and it was the best weekend of my vacation thus far, especially because I was only expecting a girls’ weekend with Libs, Bri, and Em. I wish more could have come, but we’ll all be together again soon and I was incredibly happy to see everyone and meet newbies and this is now a run-on sentence I’m sorry Bri if you’re reading this. (Cue countdown to August 23rd. -internal screaming-)
Radish (kinda), me (kinda), Bri, Libs, Em, Trommer, B-rand at the beach! I really love this picture.
In other news, the “College Corner” of my room is steadily accumulating more things and should probably be renamed the “College Pile.” There’s a printer buried in there somewhere.
Okay, I think that’s all for now, lovely readers. Hopefully my life will get more exciting as we approach move-in day!
P.S. I think I have officially adopted the nickname “Meg.” I was at Einstein Bros. in Kent for lunch the other day and I said to put Meg on my order. This was unexpected.
P.P.S. I started using a Couch to 5k program at the recommendation of one of my grad students. I like it a lot. Keeps me on track with my running, especially because it sends me an annoying little pop up asking me if I ran on my scheduled days. :)
P.P.P.S I said “my grad students” as if they work for me and that’s a lie I work for them I’m just delusional.
