So, I got a job last month. I was all excited because its within walking distance from classes, it's part-time and it's doing something I love, which I'd sort of lost hope would happen. A constant source of money was also something to squee about.

Well, I'm not so excited anymore, because my paycheck is LATE. It was due on the 6th, then it got postponed to today (20th), and now I've just looked up my bank account and... no deposit yet. What worries me the most, though, are the tales I've heard over coffee with coworkers, about people not getting paid for 3 months. Or how often people at the office pick up the phone to call someone and start with "well, I've checked my bank account and it's not there/not all of it is there yet".

I'm not a person who deals well with flexibility in that area. I'm an efficient and responsible worker and deliver the job but I expect the same courtesy from my employers.

Bastards. Screw you, Physics Institute! Screw you, state government! And most of all: screw you, insanely bureaucratic Human Resources!

I need to start looking for a new job. *fumes*

On the academic area things are much better. The magazine I co-edited is already online (it's in Portuguese but I've designed the cover, it's fun to look at if you feel like it; this number's theme was "writing to death"), so no more all-nighters for me. I presented my one-year research at an event so I consider that over and done with too at least until I start preparing my Master project properly, which I'm skilfully avoiding atm with the aid of tv shows. Now there's "only" regular coursework to bug me until the end of November, yay.

Does anybody know any websites where I can download Glee? Btjunkie, my usual fix, doesn't get the new eps soon enough.
