Today has been the epitome of interesting days. It’s Reading Day-which roughly translates into “Everyone stay home because there are no classes or exams today”. I made it to campus around 7 this morning, work started at 9 and I will be here for at least 2 more hours. Things to highlight today:
It was supposed to rain, my hair frizzed up enough, and then it got completely cleared. Hair still fluffy.
I’ve only seen two other undergrads on campus today. One of them was at 8AM, one of them at noon.
I got into a philosophical conversation about eating placenta. (And how you can eat it with rice and broccoli apparently.)
I got into a conversation about how not knowing who Prince or the Beatles are makes you uncultured.
I (and my coworker) thoroughly creeped out our boss by telling her fast food restroom horror stories (I worked at Subway, she worked at Chipotle and my husband worked at McDonalds).
I have thusly survived on one cup of coffee, two peanut butter sandwiches, a handful of walnuts and a handful of chocolate chips (and plenty of water).
I completely used up a whole highlighter in my job this morning, and half of another one.
I found out that I may have a research project open to me in the fall.
One of my bosses has been playing Prince for the past hour or so and I know all the songs.
I started out this morning listening to my Spanish Pandora station-where only the commercials were in Spanish (and I thusly complained).
I printed out too many labels this morning so I have been wearing TWO labels which say “Independent Study Grad Student”. I am neither a grad student, nor am I in independent study-I am in fact paid to work as an undergrad.
Honestly, I live for days like this. Seriously, this has been the weirdest day I have had in such a long time that it’s about to become my absolute favorite day ever. I don’t even know how to make it any better, but it’s gonna be hard to top it.
