First two weeks

One busy week. The last two weeks have been both exciting and exhausting. I already forgot one meeting appointment-never had so many meetings packed in two weeks in my whole life! I brought many papers home to read but have no motivation to do so.

We had a very pleasant 75 F day after two days of 96F. I also managed to hack the thermostat in our office that supposed to be "not working". Now it is much warmer in there. Although I have a suspicion that it will be too hot later.

I realized that I called the IT support about 7 times in a week and half for various odd reasons: login problems, too short of a phone line, forgotten voice mail pin, new access to servers, strange beeping of the telephone etc. etc.

I saw a stork flying by during a meeting. That was pretty cool. I also saw a deer jumping over Rt. 9 in front of me. I heard many different bird near work.

So one more day 2007 is half way through.

I think I should make use of my cable TV more often, but am too lazy to watch it. Tomorrow I am getting my executive desk delivered. Yippee!

I am slowly settling in my new apartment. Alex- I may post some pictures once I get the desk, bookcase and filing cabinet this weekend. Right now the living room looks like a refuge camp still. At least I got high speed internet, so I don't feel so cut off in the first week. I am still not used to having cable TV, even just basic cable- I still don't have the habit of turning the TV on to watch it.

Work has kept me VERY busy. They are getting their money's worth. =). I've been slacking off on the violin. Tomorrow I have to face my teacher for the first time since my move+move. It won't be pretty.

I feel that I need a vacation already. Hopefully I can relax a bit on July 4. Unfortunately I have more shopping to do. Grrr...

During my first two days of orientation, I toured around Cambridge a bit. I MISS THE CITY. I miss being able to walk to places and the nice houses with different styles to gawk at. Although shopping is very easy around here.

Talk Med, this is place is hardly middle of nowhere- many busy roads and too many monstrous shops to spend money. How is Calgary like- I thought that is a beautiful place in the middle of nowhere?

Tomorrow is 96F. The A/C in our office is freezing me to death.

I am exhausted! I found an apartment near work, and will move in a week. It is a much bigger space than what I have now. I am happy with it. It has an outdoor swimming pool and a fitness center. What is more, it is close to a big reservoir and some lake. It is closer to stores and Rt. 9, but have enough trees to keep it quiet and nice.

Next is packing. I HATE PACKING!!!
