Hello there

So I have apparently had an account for some time and had no idea I'd created it! I'm Jackie, I am a sophomore at Northeastern University (Boston MA) and I am currently on co-op at Raytheon. Mostly I just sit at my desk and surf the web and hope for updates!

When I'm not at work I usually just relax and try and keep my life in some sort of order, but if I have any free time I love love love to take dance classes. I also love the theater and when I'm taking classes I try and participate in the shows on campus. I also read a ton, since my commute is an hour on a train I end up getting a lot of reading done. I found this site from TalesofMU and I am very happy I did.

Welcome to "being known." Smile

Sorry to hear about that. There's good ones and there's bad ones, but either way they're a valuable experience. Hopefully you'll be used for more interesting tasks as you get more coursework under your belt. I'm a mechanical engineer currently working for a different multi-billion-dollar defense contractor...what degree are you working towards?

I'm going to eventually have a degree in Information Science with a minor in business. Which means that my first co-op is help desk. Not very exciting.

Huzzah for Northeastern (a friend graduated from there I'm currently hoping to be accepted to their law school) and HUZZAH for Boston (where I went to school myself and fell completely in love with)! Nice to meet you, Jackie.

And V, your sig quote roxxors my soxxors, in the parlance of the day.

I'm assuming that's because you recognize it from Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, but if you don't, go watch it, and I've just roxxored your soxxors twice, or more. And even if you have, maybe I'll inspire someone else who hasn't. We know MLM's #2 has }:)

ALL DAY NOW. We got the DVD but it's broken; we were able to watch/listen to "Commentary! The Musical!" and then I'm sending it back to Amazon before it breaks our player. It's off-center or something. "Nobody wants to be Moist! dum da-de dum de-dum..."

when my DVD arrived. Dark Horse recently had a Moist comic on their MySpace page, too.

Do you want to be a lawyer?

ETA: if not, DO NOT GO.

Both my parents started out at Raytheon... met there, in fact. I didn't know the place was still around.

Since their main customer is the US government, it seems safe to say that they'll be around for quite a while.

Oh man, Raytheon! That takes me back.

I remember getting ludicrous overtime salary working help desk during the medium-length holidays when I was an undergrad. The shifts can be mind numbing, but it's hard to argue with getting paid while you browse the internet during the slow patches.

I live on the same street as a ballet studio and it intimidates the hell out of me, but sometimes I like to entertain the idea of taking classes there.
