1. Do you know how weird it is to be out of the house? By myself? In nice clothes? Talking with really awesome adults?
2. Guys, I'm working now. Real live working. The kind of working that brings in a decent paycheck and makes me feel all adult and stuff.
4. And it doesn't even matter that I haven't had much to do since my supervisor has been out all week. I'm pretty caught up on the news, so there's that.
5. I did get some editing to do today, so I felt super important.
6. I did not realize how much I missed it.
7. Words are cool.
8. It also doesn't even matter that my office is literally a storage closet, complete with a Christmas tree and decorations that I offered to set up.
9. I thought it would jazz up the space.
10. They said not now.
11. No really - it's a storage closet. See:
12. I have no desire to change it. It's all mine.
13. My own space, my own time, my own job. My own desk. My own laptop. My own phone.
14. I taped up pictures of my children this morning to decorate the whiteness.
15. And then I was promptly kicked out because very important people needed to use the lab and I would disturb them on one of my many trips to get coffee.
16. Coffee is important, you know. And I'd hate to be kept from partaking.
17. I've been assured that no one ever uses that room, but this is just a special week.
18. No matter.
19. Now I get to use the supervisor's fancy office since he's still out sick.
20. I'm pretending that it's mine.
21. That's totally normal, right?
22, I can't wait to get started.
23. Like really, full-on started.
24. (Can you tell I'm almost squeeing?)
25. Because I am.
