and paid for, courtesy of Schlumberger! I was ecstatic at how cozy and spacious I found it to be; it has everything I could possibly need. I even have a view of the small pool outside my window 🙂

But now, I’m wide awake since I have switched time zones–it’s 2am here, but it feels like midnight to me. I’m going to have to make the adjustment quick though, since I have work…starting TOMORROW! yikes!
