Today was "Picture my Day" day once again (I missed #15 D: But here are the posts of previous PmdDs that I participated in: 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, 9, 8 and 7 ). This time organized by Sumi, she chose this particular date because it would be her first day working at a new company - and coincidentally, it was the same for me!
Some of you might know that I'm starting to work on my Master's thesis now, but since I want to keep a "low profile" about these things in the future for various reasons, I probably won't write about my work in the future. In case you're curious what I'm doing, feel free to message me on my facebook fan page though.
Anyhow, so for those of you who never heard of PmdD - on this day, participants take photos of whatever happens that day, be it super exciting fun stuff or just their regular work day routine. For me, it was more or less both. On one hand, starting at a new work place is of course always exciting, but since I did some pretty routine work on my first day I don't really have very exciting stuff for you to show. But I guess starting with today, this is what most of my workdays will probably look like. If you're curious what it's like - read on! I took the photos with my cell phone, so I apologize in advance for the quality ^^"
"Goooood morning! You awake yet?"
No, I didn't fall asleep while brushing my teeth, I just had a really bad night full of nightmares of losing my new job on the very first day, haha
Breakfast. Still on meds but I already feel a lot better!
Tried a new mascara that I bought on Monday. I really like it! (Photo is before application though :'D )
Brushed my hair - ready to go! Damn, my current hair color aggravates me .__. It doesn't match any of my clothes and I don't wanna go all in black all the time >___<
My new job is so close that I need <10min by car there :3 Plus I have a parking spot!
My new work space! Got my own desk, a computer and some space on a work bench. How luxurious :D
Work work. Looking up sequences mostly.
Lunch break - everyone in my group is currently busy writing papers and applications so I went for a short walk alone.
Selfie in the rain! My hood wasn't large enough to protect me from the rain so my hair decided to go frizzy XD
Campus in the rain. Our campus is actually really beautiful, but with that weather it's hard to enjoy XD
Afternoon work: Primer design.
Walking home. In the rain, lol. This is the view back towards the building where I work :3 The 1st floor window at the far corner is where I sit! The gray building is still under construction.
I hate it when I get waste paper delivered by mail. I rarely get any nice mail at all. On Monday I even got mail from the church because I still didn't do the paperwork to quit and so they ask me to send a confirmation of study every year <__< I should really do that paperwork soon!
At home, my boyfriend had cleaned up the kitchen and we made dinner together :3 "Made" sounds far too elaborate in this context, haha.
Time to get rid of those, my eyes were getting tired from all the time staring at screens.
Signed up for a guided tour through Austria's only - and never put to use - nuclear power plant. I've honestly been looking forward for such a chance ever since I'm 14 or so, now my mum got an invitation :)
Some studying... Really interesting stuff, I wish I could have attended all of the lectures on that subject!
Aaaand time for some recreation, or something! I started to play WoW again last week when I was sick, and now that I've hit lvl 90 and got somewhat decent gear I wanted to try soloing some old content.
Some preparations for the next day - my step dad promised to come by and bring the percussion drill so we can mount my mirror, this frame, some lamps and shelves. Our own drill is too weak for our walls, haha
Time to call it a day.
Still using that stuff because my throat looks like I swallowed a piece of barbed wire or something. At least it doesn't hurt so much anymore.
The sharkies are already waiting for me to come to bed! Pajama party, yay!
A rather average day I guess, but there's gotta be those too, right? :) I'm looking forward to my work at the new job though, I can't possibly show you in pictures or explain how excited I am about my project and the work I'll be doing there! Anyway, I should go to bed or I'll probably look like a zombie again tomorrow :'D
How was your day? ^__^
