This is an image from Postsecret. Go there if you haven't already, it's an incredible idea.

Por fin!

Today is my last full day of work, meaning it's the last day I will have to go to both of my jobs in one day. Tomorrow "all" I have is a sure-to-be chaotic field trip, for which we will ferry 65 screaming children to Navy Pier. At least my mom is coming with. Then next week I have two short days at the hospital, which I plan to spend cleaning out my office (and by cleaning I mean absconding with office supplies), deleting all evidence of my copious web activity from the computer, happily handing other people my files, and getting taken out to lunch.

One of the last things I had to do at the hospital was complete a self-evaluation for my boss, a terrible exercise for which I had to balance my perceptions of their perceptions of how I was as an employee with what I know to be reality. (For example, they think I was busy much of the time, I know that really wasn't the case. Same with my punctuality. No one really noticed that I was usually late to work, but that doesn't mean I can be sure that they would say I "consistently exceeded expectations" in that category.) I had to make sure to give myself a good score, but not too good. I'm not too worried-- I know I did a pretty good job, and besides, I'm convinced that my boss thinks I'm great simply because I find her hilarious (I do), and our meetings have always consisted of at least an extra hour of her storytelling. Ahhh...I'll miss this place. But only a little.

It's my last full day of work and the sun is shining!

So, who wants to get a drink with me tonight?

Nothing much.

Seriously, anyone know where I could get my shine fixed?

I haven't had the drive to post anything super edgy lately, in case anyone hasn't noticed...

Here are some little things that are making today very nice:

1. Pushing the snooze button 4 times, then resetting the alarm for 20 more minutes.
2. Warm weather, even if it rains.
3. Pretty pictures here.
4. Realizing I only have 8 days left of work.
5. Planning for a trip to California and Baja!!
6. Two words: Mango smoothie.

T minus 14 days.

Yikes! I haven't posted in a while.

Last weekend was fantastically fun-- we spent it running around New York. My sister once again secured her title as the Best Host Ever. She not only let us stay in her lovely apartment and cooked us more than one fantastic meal, but she had a spread of cheese, fruit, and wine waiting for us upon our arrival. At midnight. Brian just about passed out. Anyway, we had tons of fun, saw my friends and his friends, the new MoMA (beautiful), my soon-to-be new school, and pretty much ate the whole time. The mark of a great weekend.

Brewin' it up in Union Square...

This weekend was normal and fun, though I'm ready for it to be consistently warm. Yar. The good news is, TODAY begins my second to last week of work. And we all know the last week doesn't count, so basically this is my last week! Crap, I'm late for work.

Good times.

Oh, that wacky East Quad! SO much time spent there (and as a slacker employee in the Benz Library), I do miss it so...

Thanks to ATF for the article!
