Cut for gratuitous moroseness. Please ignore if you don't feel angsty. )

EDIT: Damn, when I angst, I angst. I'm feeling much, much better, and as always, a little ashamed for moping in public. Thank you for your concern.

As you might be able to tell from previous posts, there's going to be a lot of turnover in my office. To me, this means that I need to spread the word about the Harvard jobs website.

Good jobs, good pay, only exploitive if you let them (after turnover I start counting my hours scrupulously), and usually good people. My office's jobs are drops in the bucket compared to the number listed here.

(A note to close friends: I honestly don't know how well I would work with someone who was also my close friend. Probably a bad idea, but apply nonetheless if you want it.)

And as for [livejournal.com profile] stealthmuffin, the two of us in one office is the textbook definition of a Bad Idea.

Nightmarish conference call this morning.

Still don't know what I did wrong.
How did I manage to put X in conference with the hold music from Emory University? How did I manage to completely disconnect Y? And what the heck happened when I hung up?

Phooey. I need a cuppa Bailey's and a place to nest and read my novel. Not gonna happen till the end of the day.

A big woot to all exam-takers, costume-makers, and donut-bakers! You make me happy even in the midst of my Homsar-like AaaaaAAAaaaAAA-ing!

1. Apply to graduate school... In process. Checklist of what-I-need is up, and I'm brainstorming recommendation letters now.

11. Finish sibling and cousin quilts... Also in process. [livejournal.com profile] sal_sal's has half the blocks done; Maria's has about 27 out of 64.

10. Get in touch with two old friends... Frankly, [livejournal.com profile] cmprince did this one for me. And it was wonderful to see him. Now I just have to *keep* in touch!

9. Finish reading the Bible. Still going. Halfway through Jeremiah.

20. Take a weaving course. Signed up for it. Happening in October.

26. Knit a scarf. Got about 16 inches done so far...

27. Read these books... Working on Gandhi's Autobiography right now!

57. Join Friends of the Allston BPL. I'll be stopping by there today.

65. Make a list of birthdays... Getting there. I now have about 30 on the list; thankfully, September birthdays seem to be clumped at the end of the month, thus giving me some time to prepare.

70. Become knowledgeable about local politics... There's a state primary on the 14th. I looked up my ballot and the competing candidates, and have an idea about who would be best suited. Cool.

That's it so far!
