First Day of Work

Being the control freak that I am, I practiced the commute to work on Saturday so that I wouldn't get lost and be late for work today. This morning, I arrived at the work site ten minutes before 9am. Then I get a message from my HR rep asking if I got lost. Apparently, they had sent out an email saying that we were supposed to start at 8am at the other job site down a few blocks. Unfortunately, WashU just switched email servers and emails to that account didn't make it through, so I didn't receive that email.

Goes to show that no matter how prepared I think I am, nothing is ever certain. Perhaps this is another lesson about trusting God.

On another note, I'm really stoked about the internship. The internship will include a lot of time on the job, a lot of time in training, and some fun time in the city. All the interns seem really great too and my team is really friendly. Can't wait to see how the rest of the internship unfolds.
Checked out this placed called Alice's Teacup for dinner. It is based off of Alice in Wonderland and has this platter called The Mad Hatter (for two) which includes two pots of tea, three scones, two sandwiches, and cake. It was such a cute place with really delicious scones. I recommend it.

I was riding with a friend on the subway, and as we got out, this tall guy with brown hair runs out of the subway and taps my friend on the shoulder and gives her a yellow sheet of paper. He runs back into the subway and looks at her and smiles. We read the sheet of paper which says, "I need to write this quickly because I think you're about to get off at the next stop! I normally don't do this, but I think you have the cutest smile I have ever seen. I'll never have the chance to tell you this if I don't give you this note, but perhaps you can look me up on facebook? lol" He gives her his email address and signs his name. I feel like this is something WongFu Productions would make a short about. It's such a cute short love story.

Except, I think it would be very creepy in real life. She agrees, so she's not going to contact him. But man! I thought these things only happened in the movies. I guess everything becomes reality in New York.
