Ouch, for the current monthly h2o/water bill of the new nest area. :(

Working as a proud AmericANT!

Ah, this worker ant is currently working today as a true AmericANT on a non-paid holiday (contractor newbies don't get paid holidays -- bah!). Ant sure misses the old jobs when with paid holidays. :(

Crazy Tuesday!

A longer audiologist appointment due to technical issues like software bugs, outdated softwares, etc. :/ Work had technical issues with its test server performance, weird results, and worker ant's normal work day didn't end until 9:30 PM PDT.

"Home Alone" again...

... but this worker ant has to work from home (WFH). Also, maybe this weekend due to the short contract time and tedious work. Bah! :P

Nice typo.

Yesterday, this dorky anty noticed a typo in the office's e-mail signature (Engineeer). Oops! Hopefully, notice noticed it. :P

Ahhh, weekends!

This worker ant appreciates the weekends again. ;) Hmmph to that 9.75 hours hibernation that was interrupted thrice due to allergies (leave this ant alone!) and urination/pee.

Praying in dreams...

That was interesting, weird/odd, and cool this mawning. That never happened before in a dream. It was the prayer before eating a meal with a former co(worker/lleague)

Gardener...

... He's late again as usual! Bah! So lame. :(

Also, dang old body with allergies. :(

6/24/2015 10:19 AM PDT: Finally, he is doing his work after being a couple hours late! Also, allergies calmed down for now, but might return with the gardener's work results.

Crazy last week.

New job, E3 2015 that this ant couldn't go to in person like last year, catching up online due to work, etc. Will this week be better? Oh and summer break isn't helping.

Spider in the bath tub!

This ant ran into a tiny black spider in the bath tub and failed to catch it as ran under the feet padding (don't know the proper term). Ant cared not and decided just to take a shower with it. The spider managed to survive in the shower and all six legs on the paddings after the shower! It was finally captured into the toliet.

Ahh, much better...

... with less hair on the head with an early monthly haircut. No annoying hair to bother this ant for a while! :D

(1/Fir)st work week is done and some unemployment statistics...

Bah at being unable to submit this week's time sheet due to errors (eh?). Give this worker ant $$$ now! Argh! :(

Working from home (WFH) is decent with zero/0 commutes and flexible hours for this very short User Interface (UI) Quality Assurance (QA) Engineer / Engineer - Test/Quality Assurance (QA) contract job (ends on 7/25/2015 if not renewed, but at least it's something to try to close that resume gap and it's a well known company!) on Spark project, but it is a lot of work (already did 4.5 hours of overtime/OT on the (1/fir)st day!!). However, it is hot during the hot weather, no meeting people in person, lots of new stuff to learn, etc. It was amazing that there were no physical activities like going to meet people. Everything was online including the interviews, super long applications, etc. This ant is definitely digital and online now! Internet for the win (FTW).

"In the stairway of life, you'd best take the elevator."

From today's daily e-mail's fortune. This lazy ant misses the stairs in the former employer's office, old nest, etc. :P

So tired!

Wow, Ant passed out after 10:31 PM PDT last night for being so tired from working online/remotely and the lack of sleep. Also, stinky and needs a shower too from this heat wave!

Bah!

Dang it. Ant hates it when appointments get changed as the last minute. :(

Work Day #1...

Woah, 12.5 hours with an urgent task to do 4.5 hours of overtime/OT already. :O

Also, unemployment ended after almost five/5 months! That went fast. However, this contract work might end in about over a month.

What a BUSY and tiring Friday!

... Ant will need the whole weekend before getting used to the changes (new doctors, new digital hearing aid, and returning to be a worker ant again (finally got the work lappy!)).

Quiet gloomy Thursday so far...

... but soon to change starting tomorrow and next week?

An old nest dream...

... Your ant had a dream this mawning about living in the old former nest that was bigger with another one combined. It was like a small mansion and so rad(ical).
