No more life of leisure for Christina

After some frustrating setbacks, Christina has landed what seems like a pretty sweet job, namely being an assistant to Professor Carl Thompson, a Materials Science prof at MIT. It's sweet for a few reasons, in no particular order:

1. She doesn't have to bring work home with her, so she can start evening photography school in January
2. He appears to be a really nice guy; having a nice boss is very, very important.
3. She gets benefits like dental insurance which will hopefully plug the gaps in the sucky student medical insurance I have.
4. She can now support my crack cocaine habit and I won't have to keep mugging old ladies.
5. Our worlds are a bit more merged -- we'll be able to talk about what went on at work/school today and the other person will have a lot of context for understanding it because we're in similar environments.

All in all, goodness.
