So today was a day.
We finished the project that we’ve been working on for 2 months, which involved taking readings on 38,000 vials on an instrument that only allows for 1FTE. It’s actually unreal that this is done, I can’t process it haha.(Oh wow and I totally just remembered that I bonded with that guy that im always really awkward with. Last year we found out that we both went to TCNJ, he graduated 4 years earlier, but we for some reason always look away when we see each other. Granted, he was talking to me while I was finishing this project and I really fucked up numbers to the point where it took a half hour to fix)
But anyway. We went for a drink as department staff bonding after work, not as celebration for the project but whatever. I was fully prepared to get myself a good ole angry orchard, when the one scientist challenges me to the beer with the highest alcohol content on the menu (it was called allagash curieux or some weird shit). I agreed to have one with him for the sole reason that I want him to give my resume to my dream job. After not drinking much for a while, my tolerance has become very small haha. Everything was silly and I felt that my movements were weird. I think I earned more good points with him tonight lol..
when someone gives you a really hard high five and you try to act like it didn’t hurt
I don’t want to look back in five years time and think, ‘We could have been magnificent, but I was afraid.’ In 5 years I want to tell of how fear tried to cheat me out of the best thing in life, and I didn’t let it."
"thats not very lady-like of you"
