Never heard back from the bookstore, so I'm still looking and I could use your help. If you hear of a job that I might be a good fit for, please let me know.

I'm looking for part-time work in the form of 20 hrs/wk (fewer hours with more pay is acceptable, but unlikely ;P). I'm good at multitasking, working at a computer, being professional and courteous to all, learning quickly, and training/teaching others. Recent jobs include basic retail, transcriber, Google Fu master, and pharma lab tech (bio side). I'd like something that pays at least $12/hr, but if you don't know the payrate don't let that stop you from telling me about it!

Day 2, Research and Actions & Effects classes. Research is very exciting, it's reminding me why I got into science in the first place. I already have an idea for my lit review/research proposal (which it will be depends on what research has been done): the effects of acupuncture on prevention of cervical cancer in HPV-positive women. If I decide it's unlikely to actually have that effect (I think it might because it involves an interaction between the body and a virus, which fits very well into the TCM model, but I might find info that leads me to think otherwise) I might look into acupuncture or herbs as a way to reduce either/both the spread of herpes or outbreaks thereof.
A&E is very similar to last semester, including having the same person teaching it. It promises to be, if not easy, at least straightforward.
I also started a new job today - I'm part-timing at SewFisticated, a discount fabric store. Thus far it is exactly what I want - a paying gig that occupies me without requiring the sort of brain-work that school does and involves interacting with people. I have been well-received by both the owner and the co-worker who was working tonight and I like them as well, so that's a good sign. My next work day is Thursday, with a different co-worker. Good thing too, since I'm only going to get at most 7 hours of sleep tonight. . .

I really adore those times when the work just flows so naturally you barely notice the passage of time, which is fine because you finish your tasks much more quickly than normal anyway, and you don't even realize that your music ran out an hour ago because you're In The Moment.

I just wish it would happen some time other than 1 in the morning, you know?

Thus far, I've learned (amongst other, less interesting/amusing things) that an accident is when someone is maimed or killed, or when there's "significant property damage" (the USDOT definition is $50k, but it varies by location). Otherwise it is called an incident. This can be a useful distinction for a biker ;P.

My injury is now a small slightly raised red spot that doesn't hurt at all. Too bad, the white necrotic flesh thing was really nifty looking (it didn't slough off far as I can tell, it just went from scared as hell to really pissed off, or something).

Long as we're talking about battle scars )

Nothing wakes you up like getting a drop of highly corrosive liquid on your arm. Although it took me a few seconds to go "Hey, my arm is stinging. Wait, I'm working with a highly corrosive liquid. Aw, crap." I now have a white spot on my arm - I mean corpse white. Which makes sense, because that patch of skin has been given the Phantom of the Opera treatment (it was an acid). The neat part is you can see how it splashed slightly when it hit because there's these tiny white spots leading about a millimeter away from the larger white area (by "larger" I mean 3mm x 6mm).
