I think I hit the snooze button at least 7 times this morning. I'm glad my roommate is a heavy sleeper. I'm also finding out that john at Jim's deli is one of the most accommodating food people that I have met since I got out there. He always seems to know exactly what we are missing or needing.
I also have realized that everyone seems to know everyone through some random channel of working a tour, at a university, or through some party they attended.
Three more days of spot op-ing, then I will be back to company management intern land till change over or someone else needs to be replaced.
Lastly, we are having an office party tonight. I will be there with coffee mug in hand to enjoy the delicious dishes. I will make a point to not use the phrase, which has been burned into my head 'Cheers to the beers'.
I enjoy my job, but I did not get enough sleep last night to be wide awake today.
I did get breakfast/lunch and get to basically sit around and play with flashlights during the rehearsal. I think that this job has made me somewhat humble and I appreciate not being on the top of the food chain for once in a long time.
We get another intern to shadow spot #1 tonight and its press night. Nothing like training in new people.
After a long day of laying down carpet and driving to the airport once today, I get to drive out to JFK international and pick someone up at midnight. I cannot complain because I got a delicious dinner and my boss drew a heart around my name on my resume while they were interviewing me by phone.
I woke up at 10:00 AM this morning to the alarm in the next room. I laid in bed till about 11:30, then I got the strength to get up and eat some apple sauce. Washed it down with an energy drink and was 10 minutes early to work.
I proceeded to sit in a chair hearing the history of gateway through a flurry of names and events. It was a bit overwhelming, but I basically followed her train of thought. I then went to drop off a food order with Erin's assistant. We talked on the car ride and showed me the basics of the town: the bar, deli, and theatre in the next town.
A sandwich and a drink were $11 even. I will be making my food on my own for now. I also got my palm pilot working, and am now able to digitize everything I need to do. My day planner is scheduled out through Wednesday.
We proceeded to get back and I ended up unpacking much of my room: Nintendo wii, clothes, and a few bottles. It makes me think of being back in the boy scouts, but with more drinking and less backpacks.
I made myself a dinner of rice, beans, and some special butter. It has been a good day/night of working. I feel as though I am going to enjoy working here a lot.
I am sitting at my desk currently with a PBR in hand while I am typing this.
As I went to turn in my paper today for my Non-profit accounting paper, I came to the conclusion that all the accounting majors in my class are completely insane.
My paper was about 6 pages long with a diagram in it. The teacher said 'just set it on the stack'. She then pointed to a stack about 9 inches high worth of paper. They were bound and each was about 1-2 inches thick. What the hell? This is for a one credit class.
I was already hungover, so I just gave her my paper and said 'Denise, I respect your time and feel that all that was not necessary. Please understand that when grading.'
