Bad updating skills

Yeah I've been horrible at updating. Sorry, things have been so hectic at work that I really don't have much time to be on here. The only reason I've got time today is because all of the people have left to go back to their districts and start their weekend. Must be nice because we've still got to work. I am really glad for having work to do, I just hate how Florida has been entangled in this political bs with a case they have no business getting involved in. No, I am not going to put names in here because I don't want fanatics who call themselves righteous Christians leaving me nasty messages.

Oh yeah, they also told me that they are moving me to a new office come April. That was a fun thing to hear. Of course no mention of money until we're done with Session. I tell you, they had better ante up. I'm not an overachiever for nothing.

Found out that I missed the app date for summer classes at the local university. I haven't had the time to contact professors yet to see if they'll let me sign on for research assistants. It would be great if I could get at least a little experience in over the summer but we'll see about that.

Another fishy thing is that we haven't heard from the landlord and our lease is up May 1. Yeah that bothers me because most capitalistic landlords around here are all over signing you to a new lease. I don't have time to move again. It will break my spirit because Tallahassee is sucking my brain dry. Moving out of this town is the subject of pondering come May. Too much other stuff going on now.

My name is Raven and I am stressed. Big time.

Still here

So here's my mini-update........Totally swamped at work these days picking up after people who should be responsible enough to do it on their own, trying to find out how I can get some research in at school this summer and fall, working on a new budget with the bf's new pay schedule (two of us on once a month salary warrants), trying to figure out what a good Plan B to this whole situation would be and oh yeah trying to stay calm and focused through all of it :)

It's rough but I think it is the kick in the butt that I needed. I am now shopping for every I/O Psych program I can find. I'll also be taking the GRE again when I can get some dedicated study time in and make a big score jump. So no more feeling sorry for myself. Time to pick up the pieces and move on. Find a way out of this repressive state (Florida that is)......

Kind of bummed here. Didn't get the word I wanted from school. Working on a plan B. Not very chatty now :(

- Billie Holiday


Yeah check the mood-o-meter because I am still feeling pretty disgusted right now. My computer at work is still acting up, yesterday was the big day and was super busy, my staff will soon know the wrath of not making me meet deadlines and I am still waiting to hear back from school. Every day is anxious getting the mail now. Oh well. Got to get to work.

Early Morning Inspiration

"I have known the joy and pain of deep friendship. I have served and been served. I have made some good enemies for which I am not a bit sorry. I have loved unselfishly, and I have fondled hatred with the red hot tongs of Hell. That's living."

- Zora Neale Hurston
