Day 141 – April 29, 2011

Today is my last full day in Canada 😦 It didn’t start well… every morning, Dusty has been waking me up to pet him. It’s quite annoying when this happens long before I have to get up.. Today it was at 5:30 am. I figured since I was awake and unable to go back to sleep, I would go downstairs to watch the Royal wedding since my mom was already watching it.

Afterwards, I headed to the office. I went to lunch with JC at Baton Rouge [I had a chicken salad]. I felt bad for only having lunch with him, but it was either lunch or nothing.. I already had plans for Friday night, and so did he.

I had a yummy salad

JC's salmon and a huge mount of mashed potatoes

I’m not sure if I told you that he had to have surgery on his knee about a month ago.. and luckily, he was able to now bend his knee and walk around with a limp.

It wasn't warm, but he could only wear shorts with the brace

In the evening, I went to see my friend LS and her fam. JC and I went to LS+GL’s wedding last May, and L+G already have a baby! He”s two months old. So I went to see the baby, catch up with LS and also chat with GL and LS’ mom. I’ve known LS for over 10 years.. hard to believe!! She’s a sweet person.

I had to go home and start packing. Oh man, I LOATHE packing!

Buster didn't make my job any easier

I made sure to weigh both my bags to make sure they weren’t above 50 lbs. I had to rearrange the second bag because the things didn’t fit. I finally went to bed past midnight. My flight is at 7:40 which means I have to be there around 5 yay!! I still can’t believe 2 weeks have gone by so quickly!

Day 125 – April 13, 2011

And the pressure is on! Last day in Austin today and I had a lot to do.. the system is really slow making the updates difficult to do. I went into the office and I was putting things away that I didn’t want to lose while I am away. I came across this:

A confidential dossier I put together for the very first video my boss & I did

We were looking for a BIG “Confidential” stamp, but the only one I found at a store was a really tiny one. And as your girlfriend is so resourceful, she thought of enlarging an image Photoshop, editing it a bit, printing it out, cutting out the letters and pasting it on a manila folder! We didn’t actually end up using it in the video, but it still reminds my boss and me of this video and this experience. I sent a text message to my boss with the picture and he replied: “Haha! The infamous folder…the symbol of things to come. Only the privileged may open that…to see what it takes to be creative genius.” He can be so dorky sometimes!

Late at night, I gave up on the project for the night, emailed my boss with the link to the site I was working on, and then I got serious about packing. Once I finished packing my clothes, I had to kick someone out of my bag

Yes, you can come home with me!

Unfortunately for him, I ended up not using that bag. After I was very close to finished packing, I called it a day–I was tired and  I have a long day ahead of me tomorrow!
