You know, some of my less nerdy friends make fun of me for having a blog. But blogging, I've discovered, has been the best way for me to stay in touch with the people I love who now are so far away (Taylor, Cait, Joshua, Kristen...) I know more about the Rudd family than Andrew does. Ha! But no, seriously, it's good to know how you guys are doing all the time. It's not as good as seeing you in the flesh but it's better than nothing at all.
So on that note, I copied this from Taylor and Caitlin. Sorry for those of you who aren't going to find this funny. In fact, that's why I'm doing this: Click here to read a few quirky googlisms all about me (Lori.)
Well folks, this is it. This is my last day in America. Ah, it feels nice. I'm working, ahem "working", a half day today which is actually going to be much different than I planned. Originally, I was going to be working a half day to catch up on anything I have left to finish, help out with Year End stuff (today's the last day of the fiscal year), and whatever else. Now, I shall be backing up my files, moving any private files to a floppy, and packing away my personal desk items. Why? WHY?! Because they are taking my office away from me, that's why. Moving me to the freaking basement, that's why. Ever seen Office Space? When they move that poor guy down into the basement and take his stapler away? That's what they are doing to me here! *Off the record, the way I feel about it is, I want to go to midwife school. Originally I was ok with waiting a few years and working here like we talked about in my interview. I gladly agreed to put off my midwifery school to do this job. But if they are going to treat their employees like this, they shouldn't be surprised if I decide to go ahead and go to school sooner than planned. I mean, why should I put off my dream and plans for an employer that doesn't care how they treat their employees? *Back on the record, I'm just pissed.
So anyway, there's not much more to say. This is it. I'm outta here in the morning. British Isles, here I come.
