Okay, the reality is that I’m not very good at coming up with titles for my posts… Sorry guys. But Happy Valentine’s Day! 🙂
This week, I worked at the candy store for 2 days. My job consisted for “de-stemming” strawberries. The whole time I was working there I kept thinking about the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory, mainly because the conditions we worked in KIND OF resembled it, (except not really. We were able to use the restroom when we needed to and there were no fires, and we were paid more than minimum wage) and also because I had been studying those labor movements/events in my history class.
Anyway, in the room I was working in, there were about 8-10 people sitting next to a table and a bucket where the stems were deposited. We had to de-stem 4 boxes of strawberries in less than 15 minutes. It really wasn’t too hard, just tedious. We used these “clipper” things to de-stem, and after about an hour or so, I could feel a blister or 2 staring to form on my fingers because of it. Luckily they didn’t get super bad. I was supposed to work yesterday but when I showed up, pretty much everyone and their mom was working, so they said that I could go home. But for my effort of showing up, they gave me with a box of chocolate covered strawberries. I was perfectly fine with that. They were delicious.
Microbiology is probably my favorite class at the moment, mainly because the professor is super funny and cusses often. We had our first test Tuesday and there had apparently been some cheating going on. Long story short, he sternly lectured us at the beginning of class today, basically saying if we cheat we’re not actually learning this important stuff and we’re going to be “shitty health professionals” and we’ll probably misdiagnose some kid and possibly kill them (he likes to keep it real. Lol).
So after he was done being mean, he was like “Can we be friends?… Anyone up for some make-up sex?” *gasps and laughter from everyone* “It was a nice transition into our STD lecture!” What a lovely lecture topic for today. HAPPY VALENTINES DAY! DON’T CONTRACT HERPES BECAUSE THIS IS WHAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOUR PRIVATES. STD joke professor told in class: “If you have one case of the clap and it spreads, it becomes the applause” LOL. He also explained that STDs are on the rise in the elderly. “Thank you, Viagra. You put them (the elderly) in nursing homes, give them Viagra and they have nothing else to do.” He’s the funniest professor I’ve ever had. I need to start a notebook with all the hilarious things he says.
Alright, guys. That’s all for this week!
Keep it real!
P.S. MONSTERS AND MEN.
P.P.S. Les Mis Valentines for you!
