1) That I was getting paid for working on the conference. Would I be as dedicated, and feel as righteous about it, if I were drawing salary for this? Hard to say; what makes for a good justification for doing something?

They assure me it is nothing to worry about, my heat shielding is loose, it’s just because the car is a little rusty underneath and so things are not entirely held together as well as they should be. I am never buying a car that has ever been anywhere near the east coast again. The noise makes me think I am going to die, and I may have to get it actually fixed just because it’s nervewracking (if not mechanically problematic).

4) That I was better at updating my paper/online journal than I’ve been lately; lots going on, and no documentation.
5) That I could set my own schedule to a greater extent; I miss that about school.
6) That my life was always as busy and awesome as it’s been the last few weeks.

p.p.s. not only have I not been posting, I haven’t been reading. Send exciting news my way! It takes forever to catch up on two weeks of lj 😛
