First and foremost, wanted to take a moment to mention Andrew Boldt. A year ago today we (the world) lost a wonderful person to a tragic act of violence by another human being. A number of my friends knew him quite well. I know he's missed and I hope that he is not forgotten any time soon.
I have a big important interview on Feb 11 that will help me decide where I'm going in life.
If it's successful I'll tell you more about it.
If it's not, then there's always next year I suppose...and another few hundred dollars.
My job at Covance is going pretty well. I'm decently fast I guess. I process close to 50 boxes an hour and scan about 1000 tubes (and place them in the proper bin - there are 40) per hour. That's a lot of tubes yo. There's someone today that opened 69.2 boxes per hour today! That's insane!
I've learned the names of a bunch of pharmaceutical industries that do research in case I want to get into that in the future. I'd probably need a masters degree or PhD though.
I broke up with Brandon about...idk...a month ago. We're still friends. In fact he's probably wondering why I'm bothering him with my loan frustrations.
Um...other than that...haven't been artsy lately. Wrote in my journal a bit when I was up in Chicago for the weekend but other than that work has kept me busy. I've been getting up at 4am and the past few weeks have been 50+ hour workweeks. So basically I'm a lot busier than I was in the past 16 months, aside from that time I was a senior studying for finals and trying to be a medical scribe at the same time. Man that was an odd time. I liked that job a lot for the first half, then hated it for the second half when I suspected they were going to fire me. Making little mistakes is not good when you're a scribe.
I'm still going to my state parks. So far this year I've hit up Turkey and Indiana Dunes State Park. I almost went to Brown County but I figured it was probably muddy yesterday and I went to my grandparents instead.
Which brings me to one of my resolutions. I plan to meet with my grandparents once a month and record a makeshift biography for each of them. I was thinking of posting the updates once a month to keep myself accountable. Is there any interest in this?
Peace to all of you! Thanks for your support! Keep deviating!
