Hey Bees! I have the case of the Mondays. Do you have the case of the Mondays, as well?
Here’s what’s going wrong today:
- I feel like I barely slept because I didn’t get to bed until late, and I ever completely fell asleep.
- I broke a $1000 piece of glassware in my lab this morning.
- Due to the above problem, I had to set up a larger soxhlet. Not knowing what temperature to put the heating mantle at, my solvent went through the distillation too quick, and never completely drained through the soxhlet. I had to start ALL OVER with a new soxhlet.
Feel free to vent about your Monday here! And I hope if you’re having a tough time too, that it gets better.

I got stuck behind a (stinky) garbage truck and was 15 minutes late to class.
Hope your Monday turns around!

FutureMrsHodgy: Ewwww… I hate that! Traffic was surprisingly pleasant for me this morning… I should have known it was too good to be true 😉
All should be uphill from here today, as long as I don’t misjudge the timing on my distillations!

Stayed at SO’s for the weekend and realized this am:
A) I don’t have anything but my Uggs and it’ll be 10 celcius today, so gross, my feet will sweat
B) I don’t have my work clothes for my part time job after work
C) SO’s mom ate my lunch
D) Grabbed a tea on the way in and I’m sure they put 1/4cup of sugar in it.
Sigh… First world problems to say the least.

Your Monday was pretty bad and I kind of feel lame for complaining about mine,but here. The old lady that lives upstairs goes to the pharmacy across the street every Monday and her little dog waits for her outside for like half an hour (what takes so long?) and barks like crazy and that’s how I wake up every Monday. Then again I don’t work on Monday mornings, so I should probably shut up.

robynrox47: Right?! I understand the “first world problems.” I feel bad complaining… I don’t do it often, so I get a free pass every once in awhile 😉
melissamaria: You can be mad! I would be, especially if it’s my day off. Sleeping in is so nice!

The dog peed on the carpet.
The contractor was supposed to show for 9, and I don’t want to leave the dog alone with a stranger in the apartment (she’ll bark and freak out) so I’m skipping class (first time this semester! Ugh)…but it is 12:30 and still no sign of the man, and I have an unskippable class at 4:00.
My internet keeps disconnecting every 5 minutes.
On the plus side, my bagel was delicious and my dog is cute, even if she pisses on my stuff.

SeaOfLove: I hear on you the lab stuff. It’s extremely frustrating messing up or breaking something so expensive! We have several kits that we use that are thousands of dollars and if you mess up one tiny step (of dozens) the whole thing is ruined, believe me we’ve all done it! I’m convinced that the majority of science is failure.
I’m staying home with FI today. He’s got the day off and I don’t have to start my experiment until tomorrow, so we’re celebrating the Marine Corps Birthday together today.

SeaOfLove: +1 on the lab stuff. The guages on my liquid nitrogen dewar are apparently not working properly, and I ran out of liquid nitrogen in the middle of my surface area analysis…the people can’t come to refill it till tomorrow. Oh well.

SeaOfLove: I live in MN, and we got our frist snow overnight, and not it’s raining/snowing – which is worse because it will all freeze. That’s enough to make a Monday ARRRRHHHHHHHHH

I thought of another one! I’m in class all day (8-5) and it’s my FIs birthday. Boo 🙁 But we do get to celebrate later at least!

I couldn’t button my pants. Not that they were too small…I physically could not get the button through the hole. I struggled so long, my mood went from OK to awful and I’ve been mad about everything since.

After a pretty nice fall, we have our typical November weather, and I’m not ready to deal with the snow.
I’ve had pain for about the 9th time in a row this morning. I think it’s related to another condition, but no one can tell me for sure so that makes it difficult to treat.
I’m tired out, I’ve had trouble sleep the last few nights because I don’t want to wake up in pain.

* first snowfall of the year messed up the commute and it’s not even one of those pretty snowfalls
* because of the snow, 2 of the 4 dogs are protesting going outside.
* I moped ALL day yesterday because I knew the snow was coming
Gonna be a loooooooooong winter.

My husband and I were woken up at 4am due to the nosy upstairs neighbour stomping around. Although this happens every morning, so I shouldn’t have been surprised, however it’s just more annoying on a Monday morning when you’re already feeling like shit for having to go to work lol.
