Oh Heyyyy Paper!
Step 1: Open 5 GABILLIONITY GILLIONTY envelopes - each containing approximately a bible's worth of paper. And those of you reading the old testament like me, you know that's pretty much a sh*t ton. Excuse my French, but dannnng.
Step 2: Lick your fingers ever 2 pages because they are so dry you can no longer pick up anything, let alone another dang gum piece of paper
Step 3: Get a paper cut. Lick it. Dry your fingers out some more
Step 4: Do this 40 trillion times a day for 10 hours straight for 2-3 weeks straight. Repeat, repeat, repeat.

|And... Study in Desk Surrounded Part 2|
It's application season for my fabulous science nerd program right about this time. And thus begins the portion of my life where I listen to every song that exists on pandora as I sit in my office literally surrounded by students paperwork. We are WAY over our target applications this year (somewhere around the 920 mark - multiply that by at least 3 pieces of paper and a file folder per applicant and you can see why I have no fingerprints) which means that I will probably not see the light of day for another 2.5 - 3 weeks. I mean on Friday I forgot to pee. Me. The ultimate pee-er of the universe. I got home and realized I had not peed all day. That's how you know something is really wrong...
I did something crazy this year though, I hired myself a student worker. Aka hired slave. I feel cruel paying this highly intelligent woman minimum wage to open envelopes and file things. But she needs money and I need help. And I do listen to good pandora stations so I guess its not the worst deal in the world for her. For me it's like winning the freakin lottery. 3 hours of help in one day was like magical fairies of joy came down from heaven and cleaned up my pig sty of an office. I almost cried.. happy sparkle tears that is.
Happy Monday kids. May your week go fast and your weekend last long!
Over and Out,
