- So this is what Saturdays are like when you're employed (if only partly and temporarily). They're nice!
Worked about 15 hours this week, which doesn't sound like all that much, but it was hella intense, and also there's the hour-ish commute each way into Back Bay/South End.
It's not like I wasn't working hard, long hours with school and commuting too, but this is a different kind of hard. At least I get to feel virtuous about this, too!
- Bending my knees hurts in new & exciting ways this morning. I am newly filled w/ empathy for those for whom this is not temporary.
It's humbling to be frustrated with a vital body part this way. This morning as I'm sitting here writing this, they're STILL complaining, and seriously, I'm beginning to be worried that they could be permanently damaged if I keep this up. I really feel -- not just intellectually empathetic, but really physically empathetic -- for anybody who lives with this.
- Heh. Just spent the past 3+ hours working on website graphics, making pretty things!
Putting together pages to display a web comic for a friend, making far too elaborate graphics and then scaling them back, et cetera. I may yet redo all the color scheme, but I'm liking what I've got.
- Sending out for Chinese food!
- There is SNOW on the cars outside.
- Still waiting on food. I don't think it's coming.
Over two hours for food to arrive -- it was supposed to take an hour and change! I actually called the delivery company who said they would waive the delivery fee and give me 15% off, so we'll see what the charge is.
The problem was that when I ordered it was a little bit rainy, but nothing serious. In the hours since, it had started snowing in earnest and the cars were covered and the roads were slippery. So I guess I shouldn't be all that surprised, but still - this is the longest it's ever taken.
Now I wish that I HAD ordered Ethiopian food instead of Chinese, but it worked out to an extra $10 which I just couldn't justify as that is more than I make in an HOUR -- not counting that I'm already ordering HOURS worth of food.
