I woke up this morning and I was in a good mood; not a bad way to start a day if I do say so myself! I’ve been really excited about sending my little package off to travelgirl, maybe realistically I shouldn’t be getting my hopes up as much, but I can’t help it…I haven’t been this motivated in a long time and I’m going to just let it run its course!
With that said, I think I failed my Spanish test today. No joke, I walked out of there knowing I did not pass that…If only I could one day live up to my last name. I drowned my sorrows in coffee though and after that, and two more cups, everything was A-Ok!
So I went to Dion’s to talk to Dan (the GM) and told him that I was putting in my two weeks because…I got the job at the Round Up!!! Woo-hoo!!!! Dan was awesome about it and really nice. He said that if I want I can work one day a week (which might be a nice $50 check every two weeks for not much work). I don’t know, I’ll have to think about it.
Another reason today was a good day was, and this might sound like I’m contradicting myself, I’ve been working on an article that is due tomorrow at noon. Nothing too out of the ordinary there, except I think I got way in over my head for this one. The article is dealing with medical terminology that I don’t know or understand, but that I have to convey it so the average reader (which by the way has 8th grade reading skills) can comprehend.
Anyway, I’ve been trying to make contact with people to interview for a little while now and as of yesterday I didn’t have ANY sources. But today it suddenly all fell into place and about 7 hours later (I had computer problems and a few breaks here and there, of course) I have a story. The problem I have now is that it’s not long enough (by the class rubric standards), but hopefully the content will make up for the length.
So that’s where I’m at right now. It’s a pretty good place; I think I’ll stay here for awhile.
