I now work 7 am to 4 pm at my dad’s dental office, answering phones and dealing with appointments and insurance paperwork. It’s strange when my dad introduces me to patients that know all these things about me, while I have no idea who they are. It’s also very strange to refer to my dad as “Dr. Marcellin” on the phone. I’m afraid I’ll accidentally call him dad one day. People keep asking me about New York. I expect it, I’m not even annoyed by it. I just feel like I don’t have interesting or intelligent answers. I’ve sent a million emails to people on craigslist about subletting. No one has answered me yet. And I think that’s ridiculous because if you are a 20 or 30 something professional, then i KNOW you are checking email regularly. I’m a little concerned that my coffee intake is about to go way up, because I get up every morning at 5:39 (one alarm, one snooze cycle). On the bright side it should make my 11 am winery shifts much easier to wake up for. I now also see why adults don’t want to do anything fun after work. All I want to do is put on comfortable clothes and dick around online while laying in unladylike positions. As I write this I’m listening to Deerhunter’s new album. It came out a few days ago, but I’ve been too busy/tired to listen. I guess that’s how adults get behind on things and stop being “cool”. It lacks the emotional weight of some of my favorites,and I miss the old bass lines, but the lo-fi sound is very fresh for them and I like it.
