I am so freaking tired!!!! Yet I am still alive and breathing in the fast pace environment. Training wasn’t to tough but it was irritating having some one breathing down my neck. I did get through it and I met some of my coworkers there is Peter my supervisor he’s a graduate student, uptight at first but he was just trying to make sure I knew what I was doing. Linda who is also a tour guide was helpful and gave me some advice on how to deal with wacky or annoying people. Shes an music major and plays piano for a band called “Blue 7”. An odd name for a band but hey they play alternative and indie music so who am I to judge. She invited me to one of her shows this weekend at the Interruption Lounge, should be interesting. AND guess who also works at there!?!?!?!?!?!
JOSEPH, It is so weird I keep running into him!!!! I was sitting having my lunch break outside near the doors, when he walks out of the building with the same uniform as me!!! My eyes grew and my mouth smiled (without my consent) as he approached me with his brown lunch sack in hand! My stomach had butterflies!!!
“Hey there Michelle, may I join you for some lunch?”
I scooted over.
“Did you make it to class?”
“Yeah I did, I turned in my paper but I got blank stares when I walked in halfway through class!!! Man it was so awkward!”
“I bet, I haven’t seen you around before. You barely started working here?”
“Yupe, its actually my first day.”
“Well, I am sure you will like it, everyone is pretty chill, Pete is a bit annoying at times but usually he can be cool.”
“How long have you worked here?”
“This is my second semester working here so about 6 months.”
I stare down at my half eaten apple.
“You going to Linda’s show on Saturday?”
My stomach flops.
“Yupe, are you going?”
“I got to work but I might be there late.”
“Yeah, but we should meet up, go to the get together afterwards.”
“Yeah, sounds like fun.”
“You can meet my roommates Mini, Fred, and Charlie”
“You live off campus?”
“Yeah, have since I was a sophomore.”
“Oh, whats you major?”
“I’m majoring in chemistry and music. I know they seem like total opposites but I enjoy them both so much I couldn’t decide one over the other so I just decided to double major.”
“I could never do that.”
“Since I work here at school they accommodate to my schedule, so its all good. Plus I like keeping busy, if I’m not in class, I am studying or at work or sleeping if I can. Its not all that bad though.”
“That’s good, I just hope I can keep up with my classes and still have time to get everything done with work and all.”
“What are you majoring in?”
“Photography, still have to pick my minor was thinking about broadcasting but I am so indecisive…”
I look down at my watch my break has been over 5 minutes ago.
“SHIT. My breaks over!”
I gather all my things and head for the door, only stopping to turn and wave bye.
“See you Saturday Michelle!”
He smiles and waves.
I can’t wait to hang with him! Now that I think about it, I am getting goosebumps. Never really felt this way about someone since I saw Joseph Gordon Levitt strip on SNL!!! It’s so weird now that I think about it they both have the same name. But I am now off to bed got a class in the morning and than work. Sweet Dreams.
