Logistics and such

I'm back in one of those states where, after a certain time in the morning, my mind goes, "BING!" and I'm awake, thinking about all of the things I need to get done.

1. Make enough progress on the cricket lifespan paper to mollify the current boss (more on that in a separate post, having to do with data-wrangling).

2. Get smart-p-phone turned into an actual phone (time and effort required was unknown when I woke up, but I managed to get this done in fairly short order after all, much to my relief; it'll be my home internet in Lincoln).

3. Once a letter arrives from my mom, work out some Important Employment Document Logistics - I'm a little stressed out by not knowing how long these logistics will take. The thing is, I stupidly locked the originals for these documents in the moving pod. So my hand may wind up being forced and I may have to schedule delivery of the moving pod if I can't scramble together the pieces expediently. It wouldn't be the end of the world, but it would mean I have to deal with all my junk (maybe better done sooner rather than later, anyway). If I'm kind of lucky, I can get replacements for these documents, but I have to shoehorn in the time to make that happen, and my guess is that they'll be government-slow in arriving. Also, arriving where? (see below, though)

4. Sign and return the six-month job offer letter for Lincoln, once it shows up in the mail. Kind of needs to happen before I can start working there, if you know what I mean.

5. Come up with list of living spaces to check out in Lincoln, arrange to visit them, and arrange logistics of living in one of them. Figure out what to do about plants as a part of this process.

6. Deal with the moving truck (went with Penske based on recommendations here). I paid for an extra day with it, to try and buy myself some more time for some of the above projects.

7. Obtain a PO box in Lincoln. Too many other bits and pieces are up in the air, so this seems like the most straightforward way of ensuring that I can receive mail there. I'm tired of dealing with packages going missing.

8. Remember not to forget all of the ant samples in the lab at work here. I'm just going to store them in the freezer at home once I get to Lincoln. They're sufficiently condensed down by now.

9. Prep for video interview tomorrow. I'm terrified but excited about this one. I'm taking the perspective of it being a learning experience plus courtship dance (as my brother would put it).

Mailed item
I just checked the tracking #. Here's what they say: "Your item was delivered in or at the mailbox at 3:11 pm on January 29, 2015 in BRYAN, TX 77803"

annoying suggestions from insufferable people
Two of these: http://www.storageauctionskings.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/Circular-disc-lock.jpg

Tree branches and parking structure overhangs are your enemy.
