Bay Area Summers
August 5, 2009 § 2 Comments
I firmly believe that the bay area has the best summer weather in the world. The days are sunny but cool and you get a nice mix of sunshiny goodness and cool northern californian breeze.
In other news… I went back to UC Berkeley for the first time since I graduated more than two months ago. It was nice to see the usual haunts and walk the path I used to take from campus to my old apartment. It has only been two months yet I’m already longing for my undergraduate days where income materialized through a mysterious process in which money magically appeared in my bank account as a gift (that I would later need to return with interest) by the federal government. It has been a headache negotiating my salary with the professor I’m working with, in part because we are both too nice and there is limited money for the project. I’m sick and tired of waiting for a definite answer yet I understand the struggles a nonprofit goes through too well to complain. I keep on telling myself that it’s okay and that I can use the extra time to study for the GRE or work on other projects but I underestimated my amazing ability to spend time on more trivial activities. Hopefully tomorrow I can buckle down and really make some progress. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
