Agggggh! It is STILL raining! Make it stop! (Note to self: don’t ever move to Seattle.) Phil is hoping it keeps raining until our carpet floods again like it did with Tropical Storm Allison in June, and we get more free rent.
This trip to Atlanta is maybe the least-planned thing I’ve done in a while. Oh, i have a general idea of what I’m doing, but for the most part I’ve just been saying “we’ll figure it out when I get there.” I suppose I should find out exactly what time my flight is today….ah, 10:15. So I’ll leave work in a half hour. My roommates thought I was crazy for coming in at all, I mean, I could’ve slept late instead of going in even earlier than I normally do (I’m usually not here till 8:30)! But I had to come in and check on my sim runs. Yes, i am a big dork. Anyway, in the 15 hours since I began them last night when I went home, 78 of my 114 runs finished. The others are running well, and will finish maybe by this afternoon. I’ll of course be gone, but the lovely data will be waiting for me when I get back on Tuesday. Yay! I will have numbers to present in my exit pitch!
I walked in with Nick this morning. It’s been raining for 4 days straight, and the guy still hasn’t bought an umbrella, so he was lucky he arrived at the same time I did. I feel like I haven’t seen him in ages, yet he works right down the hall. I guess we’ve both been busy. We’re both trying to finish up our projects at work, and he’s been helping Debbie get settled in her new apartment, and I’ve been going out of town. Anyway. I need to spend some time with that boy before we head to California.
Ah, what a day, what a weekend. I’m off to plug my data into Excel, then to the airport!
I didn’t know how good it would feel as I walked down the street from the MARTA station to the ‘Nique office this afternoon, on my way to meet my sister and my friends. It was fantastic. I’m not trying to be too cheesy, but Tech really does have one of those cliched “special places” in my heart. Though I’m slowly coming to terms with the fact my life is changing and that my undergraduate years are over, I will always, always miss this place.
