SPACE IS SO COOL
A New Perspective of the Day: Wringing Out Water from a Washcloth in Space
Tenth graders Kendra and Meredith from Fall River, Nova Scotia recently took a top prize the Canadian Space Agency’s Science Challenge with a washcloth-wringing experiment. As part of their prize, Col. Chris Hadfield, currently living in the International Space Station, made a video showing exactly what happens when a person tries to wring out a washcloth in zero gravity.
i’ve worked a lot of jobs in the restaurant industry… i’ve dishwashed, i’ve prep cooked, i’ve hosted, served and even managed. i’ve been at my current job since the restaurant was opened 5 months ago. i’ve been hosting, making fairly decent money per hour (14, but apparently that’s not enough to make a decent living as i am barely making it paycheck to paycheck and i can’t even afford groceries after i pay rent).
i’ve made close friends with all of the managers and pretty much the whole staff. i told everyone last week that my income was too low to hold just the one job and began looking for another.
today i was offered the position of main day bartender. they’ve been interviewing for this position for the past 3 weeks. i work at a fairly popular new restaurant in asheville so i thought the job would get snatched up right away. as it turns out, i was their top candidate and i didn’t even know it.
i was at my previous job for three years. they never once held me in this high of a regard. i walked in recently to say hello to everyone and one of the managers told me they took one day to replace me after i quit. what a jerk. i feel much less replaceable at this job.
anyway, come next month i’m going to sling some drinks. i’m terrified/excited/nervous.
