Okay, here it is. Work is… awesome. Seriously. So freakin cool. The work they do, being there, it’s so sweet. As of right now when I’m not packed and stressed out, I can just kick back and appreciate it.
Oh man, so sweet. I’m using all the stuff I learned in school (surprisingly) and can really apply things. No grades, no tests, just results and effort. I love just doing the work week and not coming home to homework.
Like Friday afternoon, this guy came down and asked me to figure something out for him. He just said “You can look at it, and see if you can figure out a way to get this angle within the next hour. If not, we’ll just wait til Dave comes back.”
Right then, I soooo wanted to prove myself. AND I DID. I found this angle while looking through different images and coordinating planes and AHHH. I couldn’t stop smiling.
On top of that, the people are fantastically smart. To the point that they’re so intelligent that its incredibly cool. And co-oping is the best. I come back from work, either after volleyball or working out and just cook dinner with my roommate. Afterwards, Fred usually comes over with the other co-ops.
(Here’s a side story, Fred and I had a week long fling, but I ended it early bc he liked me way more than I liked him and just wouldn’t work out. But my gosh, he’s a terrific guy who wants to hang out with me. Seriously wonderful guy.) And pretty much we all hang out in the apartments, drinking and watching MythBusters.
I don’t want to go back to school and do homework. Forget that. I finally have a purpose, a calling here. I don’t want to do a stupid job, that doesn’t require me to problem solve or figure things out. This is it. This is why I’m an engineer. Not to end up with a dumb desk job, filing away papers and figuring out how to make more money.
On top of that, I got to spend the weekend with my family. And now, we’re finally back to normal. After 3 months of constantly fighting with each other, we’re back to normal. To all of us laughing and smiling together— and NOT fighting. Gosh. It was so hard winter quarter to just be in the middle of all the fighting. It tore us apart and really hurt. Now… we’re back to being us.
We all went out to dinner tonight and on the drive back, my brother is just sleeping on my shoulder and we’re talking about stories we remember from when my mom was pregnant with Adesh.
Now, I’m just gonna keep enjoying when I have right now. I’m finally getting some help with my depression and anxiety problems from the past year. I’m still in touch with quite a few people at school. I love hearing from the people at OSU.
Sometimes, when I write Engineering Lab Reports, the best word to describe them after they’re done is… sexy.
Okay, maybe it’s more than just “sometimes”. Maybe everytime.
