Yesterday was a frustrating day, but I managed to get a few things done. I finished cleaning out the storage space, which was great. It didn’t always used to be storage- it used to be a lab, so I also had plenty of cleanup to do. There was broken PVC pipe (which had frozen and burst long ago), and dry-rotted electrical wires to remove from the ceiling, as well as all of the physical moving.
After that, I went to campus and worked in the Unit Ops lab. I picked up a few things from Ace, hung a fire extinguisher, and plugged in a lab bench from the drop down ceiling plug (which required me to haul a 12′ ladder from across campus). In doing so, I accidentally broke a pressure gauge that will need to be replaced. Two hours later, I plugged in a bench, but broke a gauge. That was some of the frustration.
In the evening, the plan was to go to the Landmark Seminar. On my commute up to Albuquerque, I got shaky and not feeling well. I decided I needed to eat, and that I could stop at Whole Foods for a quick snack. I arrived, found food, and then waited in line for 15 minutes, only to find that the registers weren’t working. I put my food back and left without dinner. I then tried to commute to the seminar, only I totally spaced where it was. After driving around until 7:30, I gave up and went home.
At home, I had some dinner, and felt a little better. However, I decided it was better that I go to bed than to try to do anything else with my level of frustration.
Thank you for reading my post.
