Well, it certainly has been some time since I’ve posted here. My real cue to get back into it is the fact that Peter has posted more often than I have, a sure sign of the coming apocalypse.
So probably the biggest thing that has happened is that I started at EA. As it turns out, I am not going to be working on the super sekret project I thought I was going to be working on, and have instead been consumed by the studio ameoba that is the Bond team. Of course, I didn’t know this until the day I started, so I was quite literally left behind after new-hire orientation with nowhere to go. Eventually I found my home in my second floor cubicle, complete with a swanky new Dell machine and dual LCD monitors. I am technically still in the Central Technologies group, but at the moment I am doing tools work for Bond. Things have been going well, and I’ve been doing some actual work, which is always satisfying.
Over the weekend, Mariel and I also signed the lease for an apartment. More on this later. Besides that, I went to Buddy and Ashley’s housewarming party, where I got to see a bunch of the other interns from last summer. Anita was also there, and I was suprised to find out that she has been working on campus for the past three weeks, unbeknownst to me. Of course, seeing as she works “normal” 9-5 hours, and I don’t get home until later than that, we might have a hard time running into each other. She did let me know that there is “at least one other” woman engineer at EA. I’m going to start a club. I can be president and vice president.
Other than that, the week has been pretty routine: get up, go to work, come home from work, eat dinner, be amazed at how tired I am, go to sleep. Rinse and repeat.
Finally, I’d like to congratulate Eric for being the 300th comment to this site. You get nothing but the satisfaction that you are in some very, very bad company.
