I just went to 7/11 and bought tampons, whiskey, and chocolate.
The cashier put the tampons in a separate brown paper sack. What decade are we in?
p.s. I'm in Japan.
I just had to stop my experiment and move my car so that someone who is attending the KU Men's Basketball game this evening can have my parking space. ridiculous.
My dad just got a facebook account. I know this because I just received an email requesting to be facebook friends. creepy.
I swear. I think I am an above average competent and responsible person, but so many things I do at work turn to mush in a way that they would not if I were a competent and responsible person. arg. Today's example is not really my fault, but the situation could have been avoided if I had been more responsible. Happy Halloween.
I decided not to go in to work today b/c I've been working extra a lot recently. I checked in with the grad students yesterday, but I just realized that I never told my boss. I just sent him an email that said something like "Hi. I just realized that I never mentioned that I wasn't coming in today. Sorry. I'm not used to having a boss. I'll see you tomorrow. Liz" I extremly doubt that he cares when I am present, but still kind of funny?
So I got a lab report back today and I got a point off for incorrect calculations. My friend had identical calculations to mine, so I showed the lab instructor (a grad student from Sri Lanke) out reports. She said that my friend had actually done it wrong, so took a point off of my friend's report. I told the grad student that in the United States, you don't typically get a point off for showing the teacher you are wrong. She just shrugged, what can you do? I went and talked to the director of the physics labs and he said "Well, if it's right it's right, if it's not, it's not" and wouldn't do anything. justice, where are you? And I feel bad. It's only a point out of many, but they weight our lab grades against our other class member's lab grades, which are weighted against lab sections taught by different TAs.
Still have not heard back from any of my interviews. grrr. erm. eep. One said I should be hearing about now, another was thinking a second interview and then a week from now, another was dealing with human resources stuff. me want job.
