End of an era?

Tomorrow I (Lori) start a new full time job in the admissions department at Ohio University. A few things may come to mind here.

First, let's look at the full time part. I have never worked full time in my life. I came close with a few summer jobs, but it doesn't count when it only lasts two and half months. And technically, I did work full time at the farm for the past year, but it was 37 1/2 hours a week and that included lunch. This job is 40/week and it doesn't include the hour lunch. So that is nine hours at the site.

Second, the admissions department. Yeah, it has nothing to do with any of my degrees, but that so what. Isn't that typical. Getting a degree is more about the process, right? The Krebs Cycle only has limited applications.

and Third, tomorrow... is... Tuesday. Why would I start on a Tuesday? Because my boss is so cool, when I told him I would be coming back super late from Milwaukee on Sunday night (really it was Monday morning at 3 AM, yeah, that sucked) for an ultimate tournament, he was fine with me starting on Tuesday instead Monday. Yeah, that's what I am talking about.

I am looking forward to getting back into a routine. These past two months were nice and all to get things done, but I am ready for a.) something to do everyday b.) know what day of the week it is, and c.) get a real paycheck.
