and I think I am going to announce the 27th of May my favorite day. Last year, I had the incredible opportunity to see Joe McIntyre live in Los Angeles and it was a fantastic night!
And this year, the 27th of May is a great day as well… I actually have two good news for today!
First of all… here it is… my “baby”
it arrived today! :) Jon called me at work right after it was delivered and I [who actually went to work an hour early today, so I could leave earlier in the afternoon :)] left pretty much right then. I was so excited and couldn’t wait to get home!
Setting up the wireless internet connection and that stuff was pretty easy and now I am sitting here on the couch (!) with the notebook on my lap and can’t get myself to go to bed *lol* Nobody is online … too bad… so I guess I do have to go to bed eventually.
It’s still so unreal… it reminds me of Christmas, when I was younger. When I woke up on Christmas Day, I always wasn’t sure if my presents from last night would still be there and I would run downstairs to see if I hadn’t? had a dream. I guess, that’s what’s going to happen tomorrow morning… I will wake up, totally in panic, jump out of bed to see if the notebook is still there :)
The other good news is: Gerald told me today that they might have found a sponsor for me. As I probably explained earlier – the USGS is not allowed to hire me directly (as I am not a US-citizen), so they have to hire me through a contractor. He’s waiting to hear back from them, but it turns out that these people seem to have experience with hiring foreigners (which would be a great relief as they probably know a lot about the visa stuff, too!) I’ll keep you posted!
So, May 27th is a great day, don’t you think? And with a three day weekend ahead of us, I am totally happy :)
I hope you guys get some sunshine this weekend… if not, I am sending you some from over here, just in case ;)
