Now that I am working....

It alarms me to the degree that today being Friday makes me happen.

Not that I don't like work - I like it, I really do, but it's frightening how glad I am that it's Friday...however, the new cadence of how work is - 5 days of work in a row where I go to this place and work, then come home and chill out/work on thesis, then 2 days of just doing whatever...I kind of like this cadence. I am ready for this to be my new life, as opposed to the academic life where all day, every day, I was thinking about work, or thinking that I should be working.

In the meanwhile, it is fucking not easy to work on your thesis while you are working another job. This is another thing I dont' recommend!

Who the fuck was that stupid asshole that told you to finish your thesis before taking a job? What a fucking dumbshit!!

CPP, your wisdom stands. I probably should take a few solid vacation days to just blow some holes into the thesis.

But man, I'm not unhappy to have taken this internship - I'm having fun with it. And I have no regrets so far - I haven't yet once wished I had turned it down to finish the thesis. And the MONEY. Man....I enjoy that foshizzle :).

However, I know that if I don't finish, I will regret it so I might as well put the fucker away, once and for all.

Tomorrow.

It took me a long time to adjust to the 9-5, M-F schedule. Sometimes I still feel a little guilty if I'm home after work and not working

I'm glad you're adjusting and getting some work done on the thesis.

THanks PPD....I hope you're doing well too - hope for an update from you soon!

I was wondering how that was going! That is exactly why I am determined to find a way to allow myself to focus completely on my thesis from here until the finish line. The thought of having to do something else (TA, work, whatever) while finishing up makes me queasy.

And long weekends are just bliss! I didn't really appreciate them while I was an undergrad.
