Wow….no post since the fifth….that’s

Wow….no post since the fifth….that’s a long time for me. I’m slacking off. I should be sent to anti-slacker school.

Four days since the last time I posted…..that’s how it all starts….hehe

It’s Monday Morning WAHOO! I’m working my graveyard WAHOO! Bored to DEATH at this point and it’s only 3:00 WAHOO! I have Uncle P and the O family to keep me company WAHOO! (for those of you who don’t know. Uncle P is my 2 liter of Pepsi and the O family are the Oreos that keep me company) No movie this week, so I need to keep myself busy otherwise.

There’s still a little snow on the ground here in wonderful Bloomington. It’s going away quickly though. If this week is as comfortable as yesterday, everything will be ok….and the snow will be gone πŸ™

Quick recap of my weekend….

Friday – Kappa Kappa Psi Banquet and some fun hang out time with some friends.
Saturday – Basketball Band all freakin day….then some fun in Indianapolis with the Alpha Beta chapter of KKPsi
Sunday – boring day….Rehearsal for Jack’s composition project….then work, that’s where I am now.

and now for those of you who don’t know me, a little insight into my life. This is something I took from Erin’s blog, who took it form someone named Erica’s blog.

Quote of the day – “Excellent job this semester Tommy! You are definitely an asset to our consultant group! You mentioned your communication skills as your strength and the CSSes/Sitechks felt that your strengths were in service and professionalism. those two are very closely related. We really found no areas where great improvement is needed but you mentioned attentiveness and walkarounds. Those are pretty common challenges for all comsultants. Overall, you’re doing a great job and we’re glad to have you as a part of our team!” – Whoever wrote my performance review for this semester. WAHOO for me for being Honorable Mention in the Hub lab group for December πŸ˜€

word to your respective mothers
