Ever been so bored you wanted to chew your own hand off just to see what would happen? Well I'm not there yet, but I'm getting pretty damn close. It amazing that even though 75% of the time I'm bored out of my gorge here at UC Berkeley, I STILL think that I should get paid more, because at least when I do have things to do I'm more competent than most of the people here and I do it ten times faster. Yep I deserve to get paid more. Mainly I feel under appreciated. For example today I moved carpet samples with the work study. Why? Because I seem to get all the shit jobs like that even when the work study is around. Apparently there is no real difference between me and the work study. How encouraging is that?
But it doesn't matter I say, because I will be outta here at the end of May. That's right come May 30th I will no longer be a Berkeley employee. Woo-hoo! No I haven't heard from UCSB or UCSD yet, but either way, whether I get in or not, I've decided to move back to SB. I miss my boyfriend and I miss living there. If I don't get into the teaching program, I'm thinking of doing the Hotel Hospitality Certificate at the City College. I've always kinda thought about going into the hotel industry, but seem to have gotten side tracked. And regarding teaching, the truth is that I'm kinda with Jason. I'm on the fence and I don't know if it's something I could do day in and day out. So basically I'm going to let fate decide. If I get into SB, I'll go and if I don't I'll try a new direction. Now there is just the worry of moving all my crap and actually paying rent. But then again my sister moved all the way across the country to a place much more expensive so HELL if she can do it.....
Speaking of my sister, she started a new job this week working for a producer who helped produce Driving Miss Daisy. She seems really excited and the project that they are thinking of working on is a play based on this book about a six year old Jewish boy who was kidnaped by the Catholic Church in Italy because he was apparently baptized a Christian. Being a History Major I am highly intrigued and will probably pick the book up.
But yes, even though you've already started, good luck with the new job Ady! I'm sure they already think you're too fantastic for words. And I'm sending the tape. It's kinda hard to do when the post office is always closed by the time I get there, but Mom is on it! I swear.Posted by nuala at April 09, 2003 03:44 PM
