I love Thanksgiving and Christmas!  Only thing is, it's kinda sad that to shop for my sister, I have to buy something on her wishlist.

 It would be pretty cool to have all my LiveJournal entries bound into a little journal.  Has someone already thought of this?  Is it available somewhere?

Oh yeah, I passed the drug screening, and I'm gonna go in tomorrow for some paperwork.  Next Monday and Tuesday are my new employee orientation, and I start officially on Wednesday.  Ohmygod I'm so excited!

 I went to San Diego and was content to have a UCSD frisbee and some Urban Outfitters retro-color socks as my souvenirs.  I really like weirdly color-coordinated socks and boxers, and I think that sensibility is going to start infecting the more apparent pieces of my wardrobe.  They're not exactly just ugly--more like so ugly they're cute.  I think that's my goal in terms of style.  

Hope that doesn't make me a hipster.  I think I'm safe since I don't wear much flannel.

Alice from Tricore Reference Lab's HR Dept. called today to extend, on behalf of my potential supervisor Margaret, an offer of employment!  I'd be a Molecular Tech, level 1, hours would be full-time M-F 8-4:30, plus on-call later on (which I'm fine with) and pay would be around 16.80-something--I forgot the exact cent.  I'm so excited!  Employment!  Busyness!  Income!  Monies monies monies!

I get over people pretty quickly, I think, because I keep thinking of a flaw of theirs, like failure to ever initiate conversation, inability to take good advice, absurdly distorted priorities, or cynicism toward everything and everyone.  Just by thinking about it several times, it magnifies itself in my mind and drives me crazy.  I feel better off without those people in my day-to-day, and voilà--I'm over the acquaintance, friendship, or whatever we had.  Good-bye.

Well, I wish it were that easy.  Hahaha.  Works for some, not for others.

(Note: this entry doesn't have anything to do with those who read it, lol.  Totally about non-LJ people)

I'm scared!  I don't have much experience in interviews.  My first position, as an intern at Lovelace, didn't really have an interview at all.  It was a final presentation for my high school genetics class to which my genetics teacher had invited a handful of biology-related professionals.  One of them was from Lovelace and was pleased to extend the invitation to a few of us to intern there.  My second position, as a research assistant in Rich's lab, did have an interview, but I was so confident of the compatibility between Rich and me (because I was supposedly the one of the highest-scoring students in his genetics class, according to him) that I had no anxiety at all about it.

Now, I just got a call from TriCore's renal department, where they screen kidneys and recipients for transplants.  It's an on-call position, which I'm definitely willing to think about.  We set the appointment for next Tuesday at 9.  I'll be interviewing with the supervisors of both renal and molecular departments so they can cover both bases.  

This will pretty much be my first interview ever!

It's hard for me to maintain eye contact when I'm one-on-one with anyone.  I can do it when one person is telling a story to a group of people, but then again, the storyteller isn't looking at me the whole time.  It's not even easy with my best friends and family.  I don't know why.  I know it comes off as disinterest, and that doesn't bode well for dates.  Aaaugh.

 That's how much progress I've made on my weight loss plan so far!  Woohoo!

This is really embarrassing, but my BMI peaked at 33.  Anything 30 or above is deemed obese.  That's definitely not one of my favorite words.  Anything from 25-29 is overweight, and 18-24 is healthy.

Now, my BMI is 29, and I'm psyched!  I'm still overweight, but in another 40 pounds, I will be in the healthy range at 24 BMI.  I think I'll take it a step further and try to lose 55 pounds, just so I'm in the middle of that range.
