Coolest Job Ever.

So I've probably got the coolest job ever right now. I am a Library Assistant at the Geology Library (no, I'm not gay). I get to basically pick whenever I want to work during the day, plus I work 1-2 nights a week. I worked tonight from about 3-9.

Now remember, this is a Geology Library, AKA no one comes in there, especially at night. For example, from about 5-9, one guy came in to the library, and he made 2 copies and left. I worked on homework and surfed the internet anywhere from 4-5 hours, and I got paid for it, which is good since that's what I would have been doing anyway.

So basically, it's like the coolest job ever. So have a drink on me if you like super easy jobs!

I'm still alive...

Just busy, busy, busy. Between classes, work, homework, and friends, I've had little to post here lately. That and I can't think of anything to write and I don't want to bore the reader! Anyway, all is going well, Intro to Fiction is hard, and I've got a super-easy and cool job at the Geology Library! So when I think of something cool and entertaining to write, I'll be sure to post it. If anyone has any suggestions for something for me to write, I could use them! :D

So I've been to all my classes except the lab, but that doesn't meet until next week. Here's my general thoughts on them.

Intro to Fiction - I've already had to write two 2-page summaries on different short stories, and that's after one class. Depending on how tough the teacher grades the summaries, this could be a good class. It's fairly interesting, and though there is kinda a lot of work, hopefully it won't be too bad.

Western Civilization - meets once a week for 2 hours. The professor seemed very cool and funny after one class, but I have heard that he's not really good, and he'll just ramble on and you won't know what his main points are. But really, the class will come down to how hard of a grader he is. I think the class should be pretty interesting, but all of the tests are essays, and the difficulty of the class will depend on how hard he grades those essays.

Biology - Another really cool and really nice teacher. I've heard good things about the class and the teacher. While the subject matter may get a little dull at times (plants, etc.) the class shouldn't be too bad and shouldn't be too hard.

Intro to Space Studies - Kinda an odd class for me to take since I'm not in Aviation, but I thought it sounded interesting. We'll basically study space, as the title implies. Hard to get a read on how hard/easy the class will be, so I'll update that later on.

U.S. since 1877 - I've heard the porfessor is very cool, very nice, and very easy, which sounds great. The first class didn't do anything to dispel those notions for me. All of our tests will be multiple choice, and that's basically the whole grade. Should be a fun and interesting class.

In addition, I've already gotone job as a Library Assistant, which will probably be about 10-15 hours a week. Also, I've played for a job as Lab Assistant, and I'll find out if I get that tomorrow or Friday. That would also probably be about 10 hours a week. So depending on homework and how much I work, I could be a very busy man this semester.

Well, college is very good so far, especially since classes haven't started yet. :D The freedom's good, the food's good, everything is good. Well, except the extreme debt, but I'll worry about that later!

My only problem is that I have 10 minutes to get to a class that's about a minimum 15 minute walking distance, and that's not even couting the extreme cold that will hit later in the semester. So I have to figure something out there.

Other than that, things couldn't be better. However, if you'd like to donate money to help me pay for college, that'd be good. :D

Well I'm basically fully recovered, but I learned some valuable lessons.

1) Showering is very good. Because of my nose, I was not able to shower for a couple weeks, leaving me to take baths. Baths suck, especially when you're 6 feet tall and the tub is 4 feet long. But thankfully I'm past that, and I again can shower.

2) You don't appreciate blowing your nose and sneezing until you're not allowed to. I haven't blown my nose for 2 weeks, and I have to do my best to refrain from sneezing, which sucks. I should be able to do both though very soon, especially as I get better.

3) Taking a lot of pills is no fun. I had pain pills, antibiotics, claritin so i could breathe, as weel as the regular Advil/Tylenol when needed. This amounted to like 8 pills a day, which was no fun, though I did like the pain pills. :D

4) Pudding and yogurt get old fast. Very old. After about a week of straight pudding and yogurt because of the wisdom teeth removal, I don't really mind if I don't eat pudding for another year. Way too much.

But anyway, good to be back! Thanks for the well wishes!

Dear Faithful Readers,

Due to some surgery tomorrow, I'll be out of commission for a while. Unfortunately, this won't really leave me time to update my blog. Rest assured, I'm ok, but if there's no updates for a week or so, that is why.

Thanks for reading.
