In fact, it was a baton de colle

Hi. How many hours of sleep did you get last night? Was it more than two and a half? Then you are a WINNER! I, unfortunately, did not have quite as many as you, as I stayed up quite late making a pointless, crappy poster out of construction paper and glue sticks* and sleeplessness. I was running on adrenaline or chai-caffeine or pure, unadulterated construction paper creativity and wasn't even that tired when I went to bed... but I had nothing better to do, so off I went. I felt better then than I do now. Small sleep is worse...

It's a good day

At 5, I have a class where I will have to spend two hours rehashing and reliving my internship, trying to pick out the good points so that I can make a freaking poster about them. At 7, I have a three-hour class with Business School-style mutants who like to talk for the sake of talking. But never mind - this is going to be a good day, because I have bubble tea and my bubble tea has a picture of a monkey on the top. Mmmmmmmmonnnnkeeeeeey shall be my mantra. If you are having a day that looks unpleasant,...

Veni, vidi, comedi tui pistachi

I got up earlier this morning, full of vim and vigour and ready to start the day... but I didn't have anything to do except nag the properties manager/IT guy about my internet connection. I suspect that with people pooping in the Abbey, he has more pressing and important things to worry about than me actually doing work. Becky just bought a new coffee pot so she's offered me her old one to heat up water for tea. It took a minute for me to figure out how it worked and I ended up spilling water all over myself, my...

I'm a-ight

My job at my internship is remarkably ill-defined. I am a "web development intern," but the boundaries of that job are pretty much up to my own interpretation. Lately I've been trying to define my job and set limits as to what I can and can't do and what I can and can't learn over the course of the summer. It's hard for me when someone wants me to do something that I can't do, because one of my strongest drives is the need to please. I don't want to disappoint anyone by telling them that I can't do something....

Hope is the thing with feathers. No wait, that's a duck.

"I don't see why that shouldn't count for credit," my professor said when I described my summer internship to him. Prior to that, I had given up hope of a for-credit internship and was mostly just happy to have something to occupy me over the summer. "They're pretty accomodating." He suggested that they had been known to bend the rules in order to get people credit. "We will get you credit for this," said the president of my organization. "Just let me know what I have to do." This gave me hope. So I set up an appointment for today...

There are those who call me... Srah?

At my internship yesterday, the president of the organization called me into his office and we talked about who I would be reporting to and what my projects were going to be for the summer. While I was there, he mentioned another Sarah who works there and realized that there are now two of us. "Everybody around here has a nickname," he explained, "Do you have a nickname?" I don't know how much control I have over the bugginess of my eyes, so I'm not sure if they popped out of my head or not. Don't say Srah... don't say...
