Today, I finally finished my inventory. I went through every single scrap of clothing in that room, and in the end it felt so amazing to lock that little room for the last time. I put all the information in a spreadsheet, and now it's all done. I think the thing that I really like about my internship is that literally everything I do at UP is of immediate value to someone who I have either personally met there, or at least know about.
My blogs are getting more and more boring, mostly because the stuff I'm doing is really hard to write about and I just don't feel like it any more. That being said, I have to write about it, so here it goes. I've mostly been doing inventory stuff lately, and today I put it into the system. It was relatively mundane, but I've been really tired from rock climbing lately and mountain biking and I'd rather not sit crouched in a tiny little room going through clothing. Did I mention I washed a bus?
I washed a bus today. It took roughly 3 hours of hard scrubbing to get all the nasty grime and dirt off of it, but i was able to constantly mist myself off with the hose. If i wasn't able to mist myself off every now and again I would have needed much more than 3 hours. Oh, and this was after doing a couple hours of inventory in a cramped little room. I'm tired
Today was, in the best sense of the word, exhausting. I had to do inventory on Volleyball and Tennis gear. The tennis gear was easy, and only took me about an hour, but the volleyball equipment took roughly 3 hours and I only got about 1/8 of it done. The worst part was that I was cramped in a tight little space on the 2nd floor of the Chile's center, and I was essentially squatting the whole time. That being said, it was tolerable since I had my computer and played music and kind of got into a zone while doing it. I think I'm doing this for the next day or two as well. Sweet
Monday, yesterday, I left an hour and a half early from work because I had worked saturday this last weekend as well. The day itself was a success, because I had pretty much finished the Trip Database that I had been working on for a while. It sounds boring as hell, but it's cool to know that I helped make something people are going to use for a long time after I'm done with this internship.
Today was awkward, I found out that time goes by really quickly when you get sucked into your project and into your work. Before I knew it, it was 1:00 and I hadn't eaten lunch yet. My mentor went out to lunch with his regular student worker who was in town for a while, and I had to fend for myself. I knew where the cafeteria was, but I had $5 to my name, so that was out of the question. I had 2 Clif bars in my backpack though so I ate those. My backpack consists of my computer (I never use it, I have to work on a PC.
