October 10, 2013: Day Four

Day four at the new job.  I was up this morning at a good time but did an hour of my class work from home before going to the office.  It is much quieter at home.  I have requested noise cancelling headphones for the office.  Doing videos and audio lectures is a major part of the job there and the office has both a really loud mechanical hum (probably from the HVAC) that can cause headaches but also is just extremely noisy with people.  It is not uncommon to have to stop working and just wait for people to calm down as they get so loud that the entire room can do nothing but listen to one or two people.  A bit of a problem, especially in an environment where media rules the day.

I was pretty much solid on class work today without any interruptions.  It was just me at my desk getting loads of studying done.

Got back to the hotel after seven.  I need to pack up the hotel room in the morning as I will be checking out for the weekend and heading back home to dad’s house after work tomorrow.

Amazing news, around one hundred Dr. Who episodes have been discovered in Ethiopia.  This is some insanely bizarre news but one of the biggest breakthroughs for Dr. Who fans.  http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/10/07/twelfthcentury_tardis_turns_up_in_ethiopia/

I forgot to mention the other night that I have started reading Janet Evanovich’s Big Ten.  I am a good ways into it.  I’ve lost a lot of interest in her books as they are repetitive and the stories are predictable and weak and the characters are getting flatter as time goes on, but I am already so far in that I keep trying a little more.
