Life these days consists mostly of working, looking for a second job and relief society-ing. Since I am terrible at writing in a journal I am going to try to make this blog a little like a journal, just less specific and less embarrassing. I guess I will start with the beginning of this semester.
I started this semester with a great job that I love. The best part about working on campus on my off-track is seeing everyone else studying and stressing about school and knowing that I don’t have to worry about that for 4 whole months! Where my desk is situated in the i~comm/Scroll office a lot of people who walk by can see someone behind a desk and come ask questions. So far this semester my favorite questions that I have been asked are:
“Where is room 179?”–yeah, that room does not actually exist in this building.
“My humanities class meets in the this building. What room would that be in?”–As hard as I try I can’t really keep track of ever class that meets in our building
“Do you know where the nearest drinking fountain is?”
and my favorite
“Where are all the water color paintings in this building?”
Needless to say, it is always interesting. So far work hasn’t been too busy even though we lost one the secretaries. Now we are just waiting for the next big story of the semester. Last semester the big story was the Crossroads (the school cafeteria) failed their Health Inspection. Everyone was so excited about the story but sadly, the next week they passed and everyone was a little bummed.
In other news at work, my boss and coworker have started coming up with ways to make it so people stop asking me out at my desk. The ideas they have come up with so far are:
1. Stop curling my hair
2. Have “Don’t Mistake my Kindness for Flirting” framed and out on the desk
3. Buying a fake engagement ring
4. Making business cards that say “please ask me out when I am not at work” with my phone number
5. Have a sign up sheet out on the desk for dates
6. Put a stuffed cat on the desk
It really doesn’t happen very often but they love to give me a hard time about it. I absolutely love where I work!
Life other than work really is not very interesting. I am looking for a second job which can be thoroughly depressing at times, but “if I keep working hard I will eventually find something”–thats what I keep telling myself. I have been working out regularly and my body can definitely feel it.
I’ve been called to be Relief Society First Counselor in my new ward. It is beginning to look as though I will always be in the relief society–which is totally fine with me. The girls are amazing and I am so excited to get to know all of them better. The bishop had me speak on our second sunday on my testimony. It went really well except there were 4 speakers and a musical number. Oh yeah, and I was so nervous I didn’t have the sense to cut my talk down so I ended up taking more time than I probably should have. On a side note, my new bishops name is Bishop Ricks. Now if that is not hilarious I don’t know what is!
It is also very cold here.
