I woke up at 6 (with the alarm). I slept pretty good. I made myself a bowl of cereal and worked on my Japanese homework (I shouldn’t have waited until the last minute, but it was good to finish). I got into work pretty early (a little after 7) and got to work pretty fast. I started a discussion (with the rest of the leads) about employee retention. It was a good topic to bring up and I enjoyed discussing it. I also started a discussion with my team regarding the usefullness and comfort of our morning meetings. As it turns out, I decided to postpone them slightly so everyone would be able to make them without trouble (and I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the majority of people found them very useful). The morning went well and lunch was nice. I had a little bit of an afternoon before I had to leave for class. I made a few phone calls (to the owner of the Jetta, my buddy Aaron, and the mechanics – to authorize the work). I left work a little early and had coffee with Zack and gabbed about his girl trouble. It was nice to see Hideki and we talked about computers (requirements for a PhD, reasons why high-speed was needed, etc.) before going through the day’s lesson. After class, I went back to work and got a few things done (there was some last minute crisis which caused me to be a little late). Dinner was good and then Eriko talked to her mom. I did a little organizing and washed dishes. Then I watched the remaining three episodes of Gundam Seed Destiny, which didn’t end so well (but I was glad to finally complete the series). Eriko and I took showers and it was time for bed.
