Vacation is sure fun, but there’s a draw back: my sleep hour is so messed up right now. During my vacation, we usually woke up really late in the afternoon, and slept really late in dawn. When we were on the road, we took turns in driving, so some of us only got sleep of 2x 3 hours instead of 6 hours straight. It was really tiring.
I think I’m having a jet lag (or road lag? 😕) now. Yesterday was my first day coming back to work and I was so sleepy. Luckily my boss was pretty understanding, and I got my paycheck that I’m suppossed to get early this month, yay. That’s all that I have to post today. I have to catch up with my sleep and with few tv shows that I missed. A friend has recorded some of the amazing race ep 1 and 2 for me on DVR, I’ll stop by his house tomorrow to watch it.
So I went to Vegas for few days and it was so much fun. I did a little bit of this and that, so I didn’t have time to blog at all. Another reason that I didn’t post anything while I’m there was because I had to pay an extra $15 just for 24 hour of internet service, what a rip off. Well, I didn’t need internet to keep me company anyway, we were so busy getting out from hotel at 1 pm and coming back at 1 am or later 😉 Oh, and we met a group of chicks there who were in bachelorette party. Hell that was fun!
Other than that, I’m not gonna tell whatelse I did over there (although you have the freedom to guess). What happened in Vegas, stays there 8) I’m still out of town tough, next week I have to go back to work. I feel a little depressed by that.
I have been planning to take a break from work for quite a while. Since summer quarter is over, I’ll have a couple of weeks off before fall quarter begins. Where am I going? That’s a secret 😉
I’ve told one of my boss that I’m gonna leave for 2.5 weeks, and she understands. On the other hand, on my other job, I haven’t got a chance to talk to my boss about my plan. On that job, I’ve had about 2 weeks off because my boss was out of town, and the next time I’ll see him is on Monday. So…on Monday, I have to break it to my boss that I’m going to take 2.5 weeks off after 1 week of working (I’ll be leaving the week after) 😐 I don’t know if it’s a good idea or not, but I cannot cancel my plan because I won’t get refund. Maybe I should’ve told him before he left 2 weeks ago. Oh well, if I get fired from that job, I’ll just have to find another job after I come back from my vacation. 😆
While I’m away, most likely I won’t be able to update my blog either because I don’t have a laptop to bring. I’ve planned to buy a second-hand laptop, but I’m not sure that I’m willing to spend the money. I’ve found a great deal (I think) on craigslist, but I still can’t make up my mind if I need it or not.
I know I owe lots of blog posts 😦 But I haven’t got any time to do almost anything these past few weeks. As I’ve talked on my previous post, I applied for a second job, and I got it. So now, I have 2 part time jobs, and it’s just like having a full time job. And one of the job requires me to work during weekend, so I lose 2 days where I used to have spare time to update my websites and blogs.
Another thing that I talked about is going to school again, and yes, I got accepted at this small university. I’m taking 4 classes, and all of them are evening ones. So, basically during weekdays, I hardly have time to do anything else. And on weekend, I still have to go to work, so I barely have time to do anything else….
I don’t know if those decision in taking 2nd job and going to school again are too much for me. I guess I have to continue for at least a quarter and see how far I can take this cramped lifestyle.
Today I have a chance to add some widgets to this blog. After playing and testing for quite some time, I decided to only add the MapKit. I don’t have delicious (however it’s supposed to be spelled), Flickr, SonicSongspot, nor I understand HTML for Meebo. Yes, I know I am a caveman. I do plan to learn them though, but I don’t know if I’m bright enough to actually use it.
Anyway, in the end, I decided to only add MapKit. Even though I don’t really know what sort of places I want to put up there, but it’s colorful, so that’s something different for my blog 😀 Btw, do you think the placement is good, or is it too far down? Should I move it up a bit?
I can’t really think of any place (non-restaurants) right now, hmm, but maybe I’ll put up some of my favorite restaurants on MapKit. The other thing that kept on coming up on my head is my work place :-S
Speaking of work, I finally only have 1 project left. I feel so relieved. I think this is the first time I feel relaxed for few weeks. But, I’m still not feeling well, I’m still coughing like crazy. Two days ago, I was coughing my lungs out, my boss allowed me to go home. It was pretty neat though, not long after I exited my office, the cough stopped, lol.
I found this website during my blog hopping. It’s sort of a test of how fast you can type fast accurately. And here’s my result:
65 WPM, not bad huh? I guess I have to thank my boss because of the workload he gave me, I was able to train my typing skill 😛
Additional note: Hmm, the code that I pasted for the result didn’t quite come out as it should be. There should be a white box with “65 words” on it, and when you click on it, you’ll go to the typing test page. But anyway, test your typing skill and let me know the results 🙂
