Contemplating work and other plans

My week off is virtually over. Not like I really had a day off except Sunday, though...

Tomorrow I start my first rotation at an insurance company. I am excited and a little scared. Need to figure out what to wear and put on fresh nail polish. Nothing is trashier than chipped nail polish. And I need to wake up early enough to style my hair properly. Won't have another chance to make a good first impression (even though Dr. Handke might remember me from the time he lectured, as a sleepy-eyed girl with ponytail), and I might yet need a letter of recommendation from them.

I think I would rather wear a skirt and one of the long-sleeved silk shirts. Skirt and heels always make me feel more confident and comfortable than pants... maybe because that's the way I grew up, that's the way Russian women normally dress. It's a shame that I can't dress that way at Walgreen's because it's quite a dusty job, and involves bending a lot, lifting and carrying heavy boxes, and standing on one's feet for hours without breaks.

Also, it looks like I will be working a lot next week, coming from rotation straight to work until late night. I will know for sure tomorrow. Besides work, paid and unpaid, next week I need to:
- pick up my loan check, and deposit it
- pay tuition if I get the bill, or it will be postponed until next week
- set up clerkship at Methodist Hospital for the exchange student
- make appointment with our District Manager to see about couple days at Walgreen's for the exchange student (though I might just have him show up at the Walgreen's I work at - Ron probably won't mind. It's only that I won't be in town most of the time the student will be here.
- contact Eli Lilly about the August rotation since I will be out of town June and almost all of July, and I would rather have the housing set up now
- start reserving hostels/train tickets for my European travels
- get a hold of my host family, finding the phone number if necessary
