In fifty years, he never worked a day. To him, nine to five was odds on a horse.

Well, the 1st week of work is finished and I'm alive! Actually, I really like this job in admissions. The gals I work with in Student Affairs are fantastic and lots of fun. Wild and crazy guys. Its a big change to go from teaching to a job in an office with grown-ups. Teaching is difficult because you have to be totally engaged 24/7. You can't just slip out and go to the bathroom or zone out for a second, you know? Or the kids will go wild and eat your lunch. Thats why they have to give teachers the summers off. Or else they would go bananas. So, work so far, is fun and funny at times when people call with the craziest questions about applications and admissions and stuff.
Adam and I get to eat lunch together in the caf everyday just like a little high school couple or nursing home couple. either way. but its nice to get to have a break in the middle of the day to catch up. Adam's first BIG test is a week from Monday and today he is at the anatomy lab with some professors practicing for his practicum on some dead dude. Basically there will be a lot of pins on a cadavier and he will have to tell them what they are, what they do, etc.
Today is fantastic, feels like fall. The high for the day is 68!! how fall like is that? And I'm excited because we have some exciting weekends approaching.
