Today marked the end of my third week of working at the Department of Energy's largest national lab-- which is much less exciting than one would think. My mentor thought he had work for me, but ended up not. For a while I stressed about that because I'm getting paid but not doing any work, but I've come to accept my fate. If they want to fire me, than they can. In the meantime I'm getting a lot of reading done. I read the entirety of Scott Westerfeld's Leviathan today, and finished A Midsummer Night's Dream yesterday. I'm also really incredibly caught up on news, as that's the only thing I'm not afraid of checking out on the computer at work, aside from MIT's Courseware website, on which I read the lecture notes of a very interesting class called Gender, Sexuality and Society.
I miss LJ, and I miss having free time during which I'm not a) exhausted or b) caught out by terrible headaches. I also feel like the only people I socially interact with in real life are my parents, which gets tedious after a while. I've already made plans for next summer to be better, though, so I'm trying not to dwell.
I'll try to start catching up on my f-list tonight some, but in case I miss something I love you all and I hope everything is going well for everyone. If not, may your luck turn. <3
