Today was the first day I've ever worked.

I now have a job at Olin. I spent today working with Sean to write up a lab exercise for next year and order materials for it on the budget.

I worked for a good deal of the day, then Elizabeth, Prof. Joanne Pratt's daughter, came and I attempted to help babysit her. She's only a year old and cries at the sight of me, so I gave up for now.

Dan and I used Adobe Photoshop 7 to brainstorm some layouts for our new dorm room once the school year starts. The Residence Hall is essentially complete, and we should be moving in less than three weeks.

Tomorrow my parents are going to the Oklahoma City Zoo to try out for Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?. My mom has been a finalist to appear on the show before, but missed only one question over the phone in the final qualifying round. This time around I think she has a good chance. It's the new syndicated Millionaire, sans Regis.
