Well, as I mentioned, yesterday I took my car in.
As I was getting ready to leave, I realized two things:
1) I had a 7-day read out of the library that was due yesterday (that I hadn't read), and
2) My cell phone battery wasn't fully charged.
I dropped the car off and walked over to Tim Hortons. (It was around 8:30 at that point. Not much else was open at that time.)
I got some food and sat at a corner table to read my book. There is officially a 20 minute limit, but no one asked me to leave (and the restaurant was never full), so I sat there and read my book. Around 10:15, they started coming around to clean the tables, so I packed up and walked over to the library.
I spent a few hours at the library - I finished the first book, returned it, and started reading a second book. I also checked my e-mail, and had nothing important.
Around 1, I started getting hungry, so I left the library to get some food. By the time I was done eating, the car was ready. It was quite relaxing, in part because I wasn't worried about job hunting. I had originally planned to do a few other things (i.e. stop at a couple of stores), but in the end I was happy just sitting and relaxing.
I got home before three, in time for the phone call telling me my background check was done.
I accepted the customer service job, and have a start date of Tuesday.
Today I considered going to the gym, but I was still coughing a lot in the morning, so I skipped it. I did make it to boxing and managed to survive despite not having been to the gym in 2 weeks.
I also got my feedback on boxing. Apparently, my speed and power are improving, but are still not as good as they need to be to move to level 4. I was offered the option of doing "level 3.5" - i.e. one class of level 3, one class of level 4. I'm going to stick with level 3, though. I'm not bored with this level yet, and I just don't have time to do two boxing classes a week without letting something else slip.
