Welcome Back

After two months of not working and enjoying life back in Wisconsin, I've returned to find my apartment floor with water from a dripping air conditioner and the water in the apartment turned off. In addition, the wind had blown both covers of my vehicles off so they were covered in sand and the truck had a dead battery. After moping up the water, calling someone to fix the air conditioner, and getting the water turned back on, I went to work on jump starting the truck. Having little experience, the first time took a while, but after jump starting a friends' car twice, I feel pretty confident in what I'm doing now.

Work has been pretty uneventful. Ramadan hours are from 9:00 until 2:00, but I don't see many people there before 10:00 anyway. Besides, because we can't eat or drink publicly, everyone sits in the break room drinking coffee or tea much of the day. There isn't much to do since we don't know our schedules and therefore don't know what classes to prepare for. Not that it would matter much if we did, because most of it would change the first few weeks after classes start. At least I have a nice easy routine to ease myself into.
