Blogging from work

First of all, thank you to whoever from the IT department decided not to block any websites on this computer. Other people in the department can't even open Alghad. MUAHAHA.

Note to self: must download Chrome. I hate Internet Explorer. I can't even spell-check what I'm writing right now. I click the ABC button thingie but nothing.

Moving on.

I'm currently doing an internship to finish my remaining mandatory training hours. I finish my hours on Sunday but I want to continue working with them. I don't really know why. It's not that much fun, but it's not bad and I'm kind of getting to see what an industrial engineer does. You know before completely ruling out the idea of working in my field.

The idea of me sitting in an office from 8-5, 6 days a week scares the hell out of me. I mean if I spent it doing something I love, I don't think I'd have any problem with it, but this is not what I love.

Even though I decided against taking summer courses, it hasn't been much of a vacation. But I'm not complaining. I like the idea of working. When I get back from Germany, I'm definitely going to work during my 5th year.

Ah speaking of Germany.

I finally received my invitation letter and went to the embassy the day before yesterday. I should be receiving my visa in about a month. I have a language course that starts September 13th but I think I'll go about a week earlier and stay in Berlin first.

Funny how a few months ago I was scared of the whole thing, but I'm sort of excited about it now, even though I'm going alone without any of my friends. Not too excited, since no expectations means no disappointments, but I'm not dreading it. I want to be completely independent and here's my chance.

I decided to chronicle the whole thing from day 1, so I will probably get back to blogging on the other blog. Observations of a Jordanian in Germany or something.

That's about it.

I'm only blogging now btw because my supervisor's in a meeting and I finished what I was working on.
