To celebrate (*) my mentor’s last week, one of my PIs took us out to sushi on Monday night at a sushi bar called Haiku in Columbus’s Short North area. I hadn’t been exposed to different varieties of sushi to know what I like and what I don’t like, but we ended up ordering a party platter with 10-12 different varieties. Yum! Apparently I really like spicy tuna and shrimp tempura- also fittingly called the employee roll. :)
(*- It still seems kind of weird to me to celebrate someone no longer working with you, but I guess you have to think about it as the guy is moving on to bigger and better things…)
I thought I’d give you guys a bookshelf update! Thanks to Jill and Anna Beth bringing me 3 or 4 boxes of books that I had to leave behind in BG, I needed a new bookshelf. I got one two weekends ago, but it was an ugly light brown pressboard- much like you see in a college dorm or something. I spent the last two weekends painting it on my porch (what my neighbors must think, lol) and finally declared it finished early this week! I think it turned out great- what do you think? (Note: these are not all of the books y’all brought- only the ones I’ve read. I decided to put the books I own but need to read on my other bookshelf in my living room. Also, yes- the shelves do have two rows of books on them. Even now I still need more shelf space! And to think I still have a few more boxes in BG…)
(I just tossed the books up there, so I still need to organize my bookshelf… I accept organization suggestions!)
Reading update: I’m halfway through Behind the Beautiful Forevers and anticipate finishing by next Saturday. Expect a review then! (PS- It’s really, really, really good. I keep going back and re-reading parts- even though I haven’t even finished it!)
The song of the week is a cover of one of my favorite songs. Originally done by John Mayer, this cover of “Slow Dancing in a Burning Room” is by Michael Henry and Justin Robinett, who do covers together and separately on their channel justinrobinett. I strongly recommend you check out their other covers on YouTube! This one is great not only for the music but also for the guy in the background playing Wii bowling with wayyyyyyy too much enthusiasm. It's hilarious!! Check it out!
