||whatever is on my iPOD mini hehe
First things first, I want to wish my girl Nicole a happy belated birthday! I didn't forget...and I hope you had a blast partying and I wish I coulda been there :)
So i'm at work right now... i know, tsk tsk on me for updating at work.
So work... well this is my 2nd week now. It's going well...everyone here is really nice and very welcoming. In fact, people in Augusta have lots of southern hospitality. And they are huge...like overweight...put way too many condiments on EVERYTHING. It's really sad when they don't travel by plane because they have to buy 2 seats or can't fit into 1 comfortably. Like on our drive up, while in GA, my dad and I stopped at cracker barrel and half of these familes, the parents were overflowing in their seats and inhaling their food. It was disgusting. Anyways...that's the U.S. for ya.
So, I'm in the Project Design Engineering sector of the plant...which means I'm in an office. I have my own space and desk and phone, computer, etc. They build the Golf Cars in the factory...this plant is ginormous!
I've been going to design spec meetings on the electrical motor and gas car and harnesses, petal boxes, etc etc.
It's mostly mechanical engineering, but whatever, I am getting exposed to the engineering design process. From idea of a product to manufacturing it. I am getting paid tomorrow and that is exciting :)
I almost forgot to mention, I'm one of 5 girls in the department...and there are about 70 people in the dept. And 2 girls are lesbo big burly women and the other is the secretary...and the other one is the head honcho (spelling?) VP senior design engineer...which is pretty awesome b/c she is my mentor here. So all these men are under her command...hehehehehe :)
She treated me to lunch this week and we had a great discussion...she is really an amazing woman. Electrical Engineer i might add ;) :)
So...needless to say, i've gotten asked out a few times...by men WAY older than me...
In fact, Justin was here last weekend and we went across the street to Wild Wing (bar and restaurant with a stage for live music) and we ran into 2 coworkers. They bought him a pitcher of long island and it rocked. $6!!!
So when i excused myself from them to go to the bathroom, they tell Justin: "Dude, thanks so much for letting us borrow your girlfriend!" Um...ok. Justin was a little weirded out haha. He was like, "babe, they fantasize about you at work, you are their eye candy". YIKES. very yikes.
So yeah, Justin and I went out on the lake and it was lakefest so there were fireworks and stuff...really pretty, I will post pics soon. The weekend with him here for my first week was awesome...I love you baby.
The mall has an abercrombie, which is exciting, and an american eagle. Good news is that i finally fit into abercrombie pants, although I'm a sad size of a 00. hehe. But they fit goood, like a glove.
This weekend I'm going to Washington DC to see Justin, and then the next we are apt hunting in Raleigh, NC.
Did I mention that my roomate Trevor is totally awesome? We watch movies...we go to dinner...we can hang out and it's awesome. I'm so glad he's a chill guy. Last night we went out with some friends and it was a good time...and then a midnight run to Waffle House...it was yummy...and a very southern thing to do apparently.
Almost forgot to mention that i went to a cookout with him and his med school friends, all really awesome ppl.
Anyways, i hope you guys miss me, because if you don't then you are a half assed friend and you don't deserve to be part of my life anyways. LOL jk.
Lance and Justin are coming in the end of June and it's gonna be awesome. We are gonna party hard and eat lots of good southern cookin...oh did i mention that the mexican food here is fabulous!!!??? It rocks.
Yay for a great time and lots of money making in Augusta, Georgia...the dirty dirty south!
I'll post pics soon!!
<3 and i can't wait to move in with you in August
