Back in Waterloo for the summer. Had a very rough start - a complicated and unpleasant first few days. First roommate issues, and then getting yelled at by my boss who is also my thesis supervisor for next year. Add all that to the fact that I really don't want to be here and miss home, and it results in one very unhappy Jo. Everything's better now, but I still don't want to be here.

My first week of my job has been very interesting and simultaneously very boring. This week I was supposed to get myself acquainted with the microscope: i had a few boxes of slides of rat brain slices that I was to go through and identify brain regions and c-fos activated cells. I set my own schedule - come in when I want and leave when I want, as long as the work gets done. So this week I only did about 5 hours of work and will get paid for a full weeks worth. Yay for research grants!

Off to Amy's place on the lake for the long week-end. Looking forward to reading on the lake in the sun. But man, Foucault's Pendulum is killing me - weirdest book I've read in a long time, struggling to get into it. But I'm more than half done, so it's all good.

Song of Susannah is soooooo close - I can't wait! Not to mention the new Harry Potter movie. Summer is good. Most of the time.
