Congrats! I still have fresh memories of being unemployed without experience and it really sucked.

I have a job orientation on Monday. Should you dress up formally for it like I did for the interview? Also do you get paid for being there?

Unless you were given detailed dressing instructions, look professional and polished, and dress at the same level of formality that you did at your interview. If you expect to be on your feet the entire day, make it a priority to wear comfortable shoes. If you're not sure what to wear, ask the person who scheduled your orientation for advice.

You probably do get paid for it.

My job is currently to finish a PhD in bioinformatics for which I've been designing new drugs and writing computer programs to automate the process. When I'm done I will start work in a synthetic biology lab designing new lifeforms.

Right about to leave for my first day of work. Already very overwhelmed and nervous (and I wasn't at all for the interview and orientation), but still excited.

I work part-time as a research technician at the University of Life Sciences. I mostly work with sheeps and goats.

At the same time I'm taking a degree in Economics at the same university.

I work full-time (40 hours a week) as a programmer at the Radboud University. Working at a university feels similar to what afirm does as I often feel that the behaviour of the people here closely resembles that of sheeps and goats. And the occasional wolf.

In my spare time, well you know what I work on in my spare time ;)

So much back pain :( I'm supposed to be working in this new burger place but it's under construction so for now I'm working at the back doing kitchen prep for the other places, mostly subway. Gotta cut the veggies, sort the meat, etc. I had to bend down the whole time (especially when we had to prepare like 600 subs for all the freshmen kids for some events) then I had to sort out the stockroom which meant like a 1 hour deadlift workout.

I can talk about how we are using films in cognitive flexibility. A good example would be my professor's research where he clipped off a scene from Citizen Kane where Kane explains how he wants his newspaper to be as important as the Gaslight. My professor made this 15 sec clip and taught 10 valuable lessons out of it which told different things about Kane, life in general, human behavior, etc.
And now all you have to do is just watch any frame/second of the clip and you can recall all the lessons you learnt.
Makes sense?

More or less.

But couldn't you do the same thing with a song or a poem or something like that instead of a film?

Also doesn't it depend more on the person who tells the lessons linked to the clip (and how he explains them) than to the clip itself?

EDIT : I mean the "boring" teacher vs. the "engaging" teacher in remembering the stories they told. I get that the clip is something of a trigger for those memories.

Or maybe a playing card, like the Queen of Diamonds, could be the trigger for the life lessons ... ;)

Spot on. We do that with audio, text, popular cultural references and what not.
And yes, it is just a medium of teaching. It depends on the teacher in the end. My prof thinks this is the future.

Arthur you gotta go to the front line at subway but don't worry it'll be for 20 minutes tops. Then I end up having to work 2 hours overtime. I have some sort of rash on my right hand now, I'm worried.

That may be from washing your hands too often, gloves or heat. Try a skin regeneration cream for a week or so and see if it gets better.
I've been using gloves and dealing with archive images for the past months and got the same thing. The doctor said I need to wash my hands less often :lol: Nevermind that though, since you're preparing food

I have been doing some part time jobs the last two years, but have now taken the leap and I work as a full time Entertainer. I do magic shows for kids and adults with a lot of comedy, I do stand-up comedy, acting in theatre and tv/movies (haven't done anything big for tv/movie, just small commercials and the like) and I have also been juggling for 8 years. I have a home office and do a lot of email work the days I don't have performances.

I am very happy with my work, especially now when things are getting better and I get enough work to pay the bills and the mortgage!

My nightmare happened today. I have to work an average of 1.5-2 hours of overtime a day and periodically do a 2 person job on my own because 2 people for the Extreme Pita station are gone, and I was meant to be a backup for all stations.

Cause of this I got a thank you note during the preshift meeting and I had to be the center of attention for the next few hours -_-

A female coworker is trying to make me read Harry Potter too, and because I'm so submissive I couldn't say no, even if I told her the movies are shit. Plus, she called Shakespeare pretentious :huh:

In all fairness, the Harry Potter books are much better than the movies, which are definitely shit.
