I wanna see the sun rising anywhere but here

Bonus points if you know the name of the song where the title comes from. Without the use of any search engine.

So I started work today. Which was cool. Woke up at 6:30, left the house by 7:15-ish. Everyone seemed happy that I was back. D (the nice one) seemed convinced that I was back just to be his own personal slave. “You’re back? Great! Michelle, you can get started by clearing out this area…” D (the not-so-nice one) just spent a lot of time complaining about work, so I did kind of just tuned him out. My supervisor seemed pleased that I was back (which is always awesome, considering that he was the one who had to talk them into letting him hire me again). So that went well. They have a lot of things for me to do this summer, although I didn’t do that much work today since they didn’t have that information ready for me yet. So I spent a lot of time editing and writing as well as saying hi to people that I haven’t seen in a while. Sometimes I think that after three years, they still have nothing more important to ask me than “How was school?” Oh well, such is life.

And… yeah… That’s about all I did today. And tomorrow, I get to play on the computer at work for an hour (by play I mean just scroll through one of the databases to pick a few examples) and then I’m in a meeting for probably about an hour or so. Then more work. Whoot? I don’t know, it should be okay this summer. At least I know in advanced most of the things that I will be doing.

What’s the best summer job you ever had?
Well considering I’ve only worked at one company during the summer (ever, from 2006-now), I’d have to say that the best year was 2008. Sort of. Well, they all beat 2006. 2007 was pretty okay, but I think 2008 was the best since that’s the year that I really became friends with people. Plus, I went paintballing with people from work. Which I did mention do them that we should do again. They’re planning something, I hope.

Tell me about the worst date you ever went on.
[Edited to prevent me from having the same conversation a few hundred times.]

Do you think the age for a driver’s license should be raised (currently 16 here in the U.S.)?
… Why on earth would I care about the age for driving in the States? That being said, it’s pretty okay right now in Canada. 16 for a Learners, but I really do think that they should get rid of that second road test. I guess I’ll schedule that… eventually…

    I have no idea about the title. I googled it anyway just out of curiosity and your site comes up first. Pretty neat. Anyway I am glad that work was happy to see you and you are happy about that. It’s great to have a summer job. I hope I can find something.

    I also have no idea about the title. I could google it but I’m too lazy for even that. Yay for work already! Well I say that, probably not quite as exciting for you. I miss work, le sigh.

    It eighteen where you can drive legally here in Britain but we can drink from sixteen, so I guess that’s why.

    It’s a good thing your supervisor’s where happy you where back, that means they know you do your job properly. :) x
