1. We were having lunch together and Yakov mentioned he probably was over-jealous of someone who can use screw driver to play around with stuff in the lab. I was like, “You don’t have to, man. Screw driver is used to screw things up…”
2. We were having lunch and I saw Danijel (my internship buddy) and Ram (my project manager) were having lunch at another table. So I told others that I need to go to Danijel and Ram’s table to have lunch. Yakov was like, “See, Barton think we are not fun anymore.”
“No. Don’t take me wrong, man. Not that you are not fun anymore. It’s just that you guys are not important to me anymore…” I comforted him.
3. There was an intern poster session on Thursday and every intern presented their work at that session, about which here are some pieces.
3.1 Two HRs came to my poster and asked me who my lab manager is. I told them I worked with John. They were like, “Oh, John~ We know him. How do you like him?” I was like, “I like him. He is a really nice guy,” and paused a little bit, “can you guys make sure John knows what I just said?…” HRs laughed and I reminded them like, “Please make sure send John an email after this, telling him I said he was a nice guy…”
3.2 Ram (my project manager) came to my poster and pretended to be a stranger, “So, what is your work about?” I helped him to continue the joke like, “Oh, my work is to develop an LED lighting control system. I am working with a very good and nice project manager…”
3.3 Bruce came to my poster and kidded me like, “This is your project? Huh, what was the smoke rising from your circuit about on the other day?”, even though he was even unable to come into the lab I worked in…
Then we discussed a little bit about my poster and he said “this is a cool project and maybe that’s where the smoke comes from.” I was like, “Yeah. You are right. This is exactly what people called ‘Holy Smoke’….” (Here is the definition of “Holy Smoke”.)
4. We were playing soccer after work and people reminded each other of not getting hurt. Hosein told me Yakov got a concussion a while ago. I was like, “I knew it! I knew something must be wrong about him!!”
I started shopping with my own non-plastic bags a while ago. Yay~
