|11:20 pm - I am also trying to learn to use the mouse left-handed|
Well, I have had my first week - well, half-week - at the new job. Which is rather like I had been told - easy and rather boring. Also, the almost 6 hours of clicking away on the mouse may end up giving me carpal tunnel syndrome.
I am also developing a renewed appreciation for people who write silly things on their test papers. Not that it gains them any marks, but it keeps markers entertained when they are in a long shift. Well, it's that or radio (my iPod currently seems to be imploding on me).
The plus side is that I don't start til 4.30pm, which gives me plenty of time to do stuff in the day - though the fact we finish at 10:30 at night - and only get home at midnight, means a big chunk of that is sleeping.
Aside from that, since it's my birthday on Monday, my Mum is in Melbourne again for the weekend. We - Mum, my sister and I - went and had Mexican for dinner tonight, and will be at the Museum tomorrow afternoon. Also, Mum gave me my present which is a shiny purple suitcase to match my carry-on bag. Apparently she had to get it online, since the colour is no longer sold in Australia.
Clearly, this is all a message that I should travel some more with my nice new luggage.
In other news, I seem to have gotten a cold, and so am not feeling my best. :\
Also, my mother was asking me what this tumblr thing was, to my amusement.
Current Mood: tired
I had to get an elasticised wrist brace as a preventative for carpal tunnel; maybe that would help? You can just get them from the chemist.
I love Los Amates. I usually go there for dinner before events at Hares and Hyenas so I have yummy taquitos to fuel me for reading porn to people.
Well, I shall go for a few more days and see how my arm is feeling.
We wanted to go to Los Amates last time my mum was in Melbourne, but they were all booked. But they had room today!
This condition is not caused by using a keyboard. However, if one has a predisposition to this condition, repetitive activity such as typing can aggravate it... Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (http://carpal-tunnel-syndrome-guide.info/)
