I've had practically nothing to do all day and it's driving me nuts. I started working so I wouldn't be so bored. I have asked my boss 3 different times today if there is anything she wants me to do, and each time nothing. I am almost afraid to ask her though cuz I don't want them to think they don't need me cuz I'm just a temp. But work goes by sooo much faster if you are busy.

Dman and I am probably only going to update this at work so it will probably be only work related and that must get pretty boring.

But here is my life:
Monday-Friday gone from 8-6 at work. Come home eat dinner, bug my cats, and watch 2 hours of tv. I watch so much TV now it's pathetic.
Saturday: watch my brother's track meet. This can take all day. I was gone from 8am till 1130pm last saturday. I'm quickly becoming a track fan.

Sunday: um nothing. TV, internet, sit around doing nothing.

There you have it, the exciting life of alex. When you lead a boring life you will only have boring things to write about.

My wrist hurts from typing too much/fast. So I guess that's a sign that I'm done.

smoking and drinking

I don’t think I’m really well-suited for this office life. I don’t drink coffee and I don’t smoke. You wouldn’t believe how much time people spend doing those activities. This one guy is outside smoking at least once an hour all day long. Add the time spent outside smoking, to the time spent making and drinking coffee 10 times a day, and that’s a huge chunk of time! Now if I was to just stand outside for 10 minutes a day reading a book or something, that wouldn’t be acceptable. But all of the sudden if you stick a cancer causing piece of paper in your mouth, then it’s ok. How unfair is that. So the only thing I can do to combat this “discrimination” towards non-smokers is to drink water. And I drink like it’s my job. The cups are super small and that forces me to get up once an hour and refill it. I never realized how much water I drank until I was cleaning up my cubicle today. I had about 5-6 styrofoam cups sitting on my desk. Yeah I know, an environmentalist’s worst nightmare. I try to reuse my cups, but obviously I forget. I should just bring my own bottle, but I’m lazy. Anyways, back to water drinking. So the more water you drink the more you have to pee. So you can see between peeing and drinking, I’ve managed to pass quite a lot of time each day. Speaking of which, I think it's time for me to get some more water...

i am boring

I do the same thing every day, and look what happens if I change something up.

So I actually took the time to straighten my hair and wear it down at work today. The last time I did that was probably a month ago. I was amazed at how many people at work noticed and complimented me, even though I thought it looked like shit.

Anyways, related to that, I go to the same restuarant down the street probably 2 or 3 times a week because I can walk there and I don't have a car at work most of the time. I hate bringing lunch because I like to leave work for lunch. So it's gotten to the point where they definitely recognize me and know my order, and they even stopped charing me for the extra cheese on the omelet. But today I went there and they even noticed my hair was down and the guy kept complimenting me on how nice it looked. I think I should take that as a clue that I go there WAY too much. But I like their food too much, plus it's "healthy." The only other problem is now I can't ever make an omelet at home b/c it doesn't taste anywhere near as good as they make it.

So I get back to my cubicle at work, and my boss emailed me this:

"Please go on internet and find me some famous artists names. We need 4 for now. I got the following ones, but try to find others, so we can select later.
This is to name the conference rooms"

All I can say is wow, is that really all the artist names she can think of? Furthermore, did she think I was that dumb that I would have to go and actually research famous artist names on the internet!!?? I mean I hate museums and stuff like that, but I can pull at least 10 more well-known artists out of my brain, and I'm assuming most other people could do the same. Oh well. Finished that easy task. Off to do boring stuff and stare at the glare on the computer screen that will eventually give me a headache.

What a random entry I know. I wonder how long it will take for anyone to notice.

I am so bored at work right now. 5 more minutes and I can leave. I am running out of internet sites to look at to keep me entertained at work, and one of the ones I look at on a normal basis just got hacked so I can't even look at that one.

So, when there is nothing else to do, I can always count on facebook. It's pathetic how often I check that recently updated friends option. I wish people updated their picture more often. Of course I can't complain because my picture is currently a cat, and I think I've changed it a whole 3 times since August. Maybe I will start changing it every day for those people like me who love it when they see updated profiles. Maybe, but most likely not.

It's raining. This has been the worst winter. I have wasted a whole winter in California, and next winter when I am not in California I am going to be wishing I was back here. But of course I always want what I can't have. Just like to complain.

Time to go home. Maybe I will update again. Someday.

I am bored so I will upate this again. The rain still hasn't gone away and the swim team is having a softball game in like 20 minutes! I read Meredith's post, and I definitely remember Laura falling twice, and laying in the middle of 30 college street last night. Apparently on the way over to Pine Street she also saw me walking and chased me and gave me this huge HUG and I fell limp to the ground. Hugs are deadly, didn't you know?

ANother thing, I think I am going to wear my parka today...I cannot believe it's almost May and I am thinking about possibly wearing a parka!! NO more complaining...

It is raining...it is not supposed to rain on ivies weekend, that defeats the whole point of saturday!!! I am so tempted to just sit in my room all day and watch tv and glare out the window at the depressing rain. But first, I must go to brunch because it opens soon and I'm hungry. Wow, what a boring entry...hey at least I admit it.

I'm Alive

I haven't written in this thing in over a year and a half...but it's still alive. So much has happened in the past year or so, who would have known...but nothing important has happened.

I no longer have a no sleeping problem, instead I have a sleeping problem...it's 11pm and it's past my bedtime...and I probably won't even get up till 9.

I just updated cuz I was wasting time reading Meredith's very detailed and long livejournal and thought I would respond to hers and see how long it took her to notice that I had one too and look at this. Hi Meredith!

Ok, bye bye.

wasting time

my stomach continues to growl at the most inconvenient times yet again. it is now 12:30 at night and I am starving. Oh well I am going to bed soon anyways cause I think I will get up at 6:30 to go swimming again. I didn't get any work done tonite, wow the story of my life. I just wasted a bunch of time in my room taking random pictures. Wow and now there are a bunch of really scary pictures of me and other people as well...the wonders of a digital camera. And all of the ones with me in it have me with my glasses on cause my eyes are bloodshot from polo. Now everyone is asleep and i think i should too but i didn't do work. what a dilemna. maybe i will make a do to list...that's it...waste time writing things down that i have to do to avoid doing them.

ive been dorkified

alrighty...hmm well I think I have turned into an official dork. Yesterday I didn't go out and just sat in my room and watched the bowdoin cable channel and actually did some reading. All my roommates went out but I didn't...very weird. And my reasoning behind it was absolutely pathetic...i had way too much Ben and Jerry's before and I wasn't in the mood to go out and I couldn't afford all those extra empty calories after the ice cream. Yeah well it was best I stayed in. Ok well hopefully tonite will be aok...i am at least leaving the building. I dunno if I am going to really party but whatever.

stiff fingers

yeah so what am I doing up at 3 am? I went on a Bio Lab today and I hope I still like the Marine Bio class cause I just realized that I really don't like all those small animals and plants. I think they are gross and I didn't want to fall in the ocean and slip on the seaweed. It seems like everyone is smarter than me and this sucks. I just wish I was good at something, especially something school related because then maybe I would have an easier time deciding on a major and what not. Also I need to learn not to be so picky cause I haven't eaten dinner for 2 nights in a row now and I don't have anything highlighted for the next four days on the menu for dinner. I think I need to make a mental not to grap a bunch of comment cards...on that note...i should get to bed before the birds start chirping. I took my medicine too late cause I was tired earlier and now I am wide awake but my body aches so hopefully I will be able to fall asleep. My fingers are all stiff from typing too much today...
