Getting Organized September 4, 2014

Didn’t use a planner for my summer classes, but had to break down and get one for the fall semester. I was just getting confused because my classes are so similar. It’s all in the book now, and sorted out. Lots of work to do, and one very unfortunately timed final project. But, it should work out alright. The other final project is timed excellently, giving me two weeks with nothing but it to work on, owing to the fact that the class ends the week after Thanksgiving. The projects for both look pretty awesome, so it should be good.

Pharmacy frustrations galore. I know it’s my fault for not ordering refills ahead of time, but three days running they keep telling me “maybe we’ll have it tomorrow.” Though today’s added bonus was being confusing and telling me they were going to call my doctor, as though to switch my script to something else. No, thanks, I don’t want something else, I want the drugs that I’m taking and that are working. I don’t care if you have to call another distributor, that’s not my business, do what you have to do, just get the medications, or I’ll go somewhere else, thank you. So, I haven’t had my meds all week other than Naproxen. I slept for four hours when I got home yesterday, was up for about four, and then slept hard all night.

Anybody need a job? Anybody that will actually show up and not quit after a couple weeks? We’ve got a lot of positions open if you’re willing to work retail with cafe. Manager on down. Full and part time. And soon, we’ll be doing seasonal hiring, too. Wee fun.  On a related note, anyone need a half-way-through-my-degree librarian? 😉

So, I’ve caught a summer cold. I blame Allie and Shane. 😉 It’s kinda miserable, but at least I have a puppy to cuddle.

New classes started this week. Digital Libraries and Intro to Digital Preservation. Should be a fun semester, if very full of homework. One involves a group project, the other is individual work with group discussions(as per usual). One is light on reading, the other seems pretty heavy. So, should be an interesting semester.

More people leaving the store, heading into Holiday hiring soon. We’ve got a bunch of full time positions open. Wee, fun!  Still waiting to hear back on some recent applications. Fingers crossed.

I had a great, but unexpected weekend. Got to see a lot more friends than I planned on, and a lot less rollercoasters. It was a good time, and beautiful weather to be out and about.

Monday, classes started. I finally got to see my syllabi for my two classes that I’m starting with, and put all the deadlines into my planner.  I took a pre-test for my technology class, but did not get a high enough score to skip the first three chapters. I wrote an student bio blog post for both my classes, and replied to many of my classmates’ posts. There was also a scavenger hunt of the course website. Still to do this week: Chapter one of the tech class, and reviewing all the group project information so I can sign myself up to one of the three groups. It promises to be a busy and exciting semester.

Not much else to report right now, I’ve got to get down to homework. 😉
