End of week 1!

So I've just finished the first week of my internship. I haven't had a lot of blog time. So here's a quick run-down:

Day 0: Sunday—move-in day. I got here Sunday, met my employer, moved into my room, and met a few people. My room is the top floor of the commons cabin (where everyone eats and makes phone calls and has internet access). while I was moving in a wasp came into my room. freaked me out. I went to bed covered in blankets so it couldn't find me because I heard a buzzing at my window all night long.

Day 1: Monday—do-nothing day. also, I woke up and discovered that the buzzing at my window was a mayfly caught between the glass and the screen. I felt dumb.

My employer—We'll call him James—said he wanted me to get acclimated to the area. So I sat around my room and worked on some knitting/crocheting projects, and I explored the town a little. it's really cute. I found the Walmart and I got some food. I made some lentels and ate some leftover rice I found in the fridge.

Day 2: Tuesday—started work. met with James, reconciled some bank statements, and edited the newsletter.

Day 3: Wednesday—I wrote a speech that will introduce people to the facility I'm staying at. James liked it.

Day 4: Thursday—James was out of town, so I didn't do anything today except hang around.

Day 5: Friday (today)—hung around until 12, when I went into town to drop off a basket of stuff for the people to whom we're giving the speech on saturday. then I worked on emailing people for James.

then I set the table (because I felt like it) and went to Ingles to get some food for this weekend (because I want to eat healthy).

Now I'm sitting outside smelling really yummy food while (Cook is cooking).

Also: My car is totaled. sad days.
