First day of work!
It went pretty well I think. There were two accidents on the way, I thought I was going to be late. Instead I showed up exactly on time. Then I filled out loooots of paper work, then got to working. There wasn’t a whole lot to do. Splicing is kind of hard to make it perfect, I feel bad doing a bad job, even though I’m new. I’m sure they understand. And I’ll get better.
There was a lot of sitting around, waiting for jobs.
Chris showed me around, all the people are quite nice around there. It feels quite like school nice, like how a lot of people were friendly in the studio and maclab and such. Except here I get paid, but not nearly as much as I pay to go to school.
When I got there, they had a garbage can on my desk full of supplies! I felt so professional, putting staples in my stapler, and tape in my tape dispenser, and organizing my 4! sizes of sticky notes, and my 3 large sharpies, and 3 small sharpies, and 3 pens, and 4 sizes of paper, and my push pins, and pencil, and staple remover, and my mouse pad. All at my own Mac with a window right infront of my on the fourth floor! I’m a corporate whore! Ironic, isn’t it?
Not only does Kelly also work in Dearborn, it turns out she works right across the street. How cool is that? Oh, and I got a little keycard on a Batman-esque retracting thing to wear on my waist for either getting on certain floors, or for climbing up the sides of buildings!
After, Ben Joel and I practiced. It was good. Playing music is good. I want to be better. I think I’ll get to save a lot of what I make. getting off work at 9 leaves no time for doing much of anything during the week. So only weekends are really free, and there is only so much to spend money then. I think I may explore metro-Detroit before work. It may be hard, but I think it’ll be worth it. There are some spots in metro-Detroit I haven’t been to be before that I’d like to.
Hey, here is a list of people. If you have a photograph, digital or pre-scanned(the effort to scan isn’t necessary) of any of these people, and is a photograph that you consider it to be an accurate representation of how they typically are, could you e-mail it to me? If possible, I would prefer this to be a photo taken within the last school year. My e-mail is email@example.com. If you are on that list, and you don’t want people sending me your picture, let me know, I won’t take it.
Don’t assume someone else will send me a photo, or else everyone will do that and no one will send a photo. As I get them, I will put a * by the ones I receive, so you know whom I’ve received. Sent what you have regardless of * presence.

Send what you have, even if there is a *
