The problem with "modern education" is that you can't escape having to use the computer. I like computers. I like the internet and my editing programs. I don't however like useless "aids" that are supposed to facilitate student-teacher interactions and all that mumbo jumbo. Being a student in CUNY is not like it used to be. Now all my classes are presented in powerpoint (very annoying) and all the course assignments and the like are online. To get to these postings, you have to log on to all these places and read all this useless garbage only to waste my time printing these sheets out. I really don't care if the professor wants to wish us all good luck. Really I don't. In fact, I'd rather them not. Call me old fashioned, but I just wish we could do it with pen and paper and book. SHEESH!
Today was the first day I used my EZ-Pass and lo and behold, there were TWO disabled cars in the tunnel one in EACH LANE! i actually got out of work early and if I'd have taken the normal way, I would have had more time to spare. Thank God my first class' professor doesnt care about lateness. WHEW. Well, even though that happened, I managed to get a street spot (no alternate side until Wednesday) and was only 5 minutes late. Hopefully it won't be like that on the way back. BLARGH.
I'm also not that fond of my second class. She is very high and mighty given all her credentials and has the attitude to go with it. Thankfully it's a level 1 class. I can probably deal with her. I just hope I don't get her for my 321 class. Bleh!
My last class starts soon. I hope that one is better than the second. The stats class seems to be straight foward AND open book. Whew. One less thing I have to worry about.
So far I don't have any new hatred towards school or anyone. The only problem is that my second class takes points off for absences. I hope to be starting that position I wanted soon. If the training class is on a day I have class, there goes that. Sigh. Why are some professors so, ugh?
I have one assignment to do already and I wanted to do it whilst sitting here but I had to spend all this time looking at all the useless notes and email sent to me to faciliate learning. I still don't own a cell phone. Wonder if I ever will. hm.
HI! It's me. I think now that I have some time on my hands before classes start I should update you all to the LATEST NEWS!!!
JOB Well, I had finally got IN the place I wanted to work. Now Im waiting for that neat little position... can we say AIRPLANES??? I would be so excited if I got that position because I want to be able to go right up to the plane and get what I need. OOoOOOooOoOoooHhhhh!
So far, it's been good at work. I have a busy schedule with them, but its not so bad because my days are free to go to school and study. Well, you can read on to see how my time is crunched with school. I have to get up pretty early in the morning because I start at about 7am now. Before we started earlier, about 6am. However, if I get the position that I really wanted, I will have to start at about 5:30am everyday. I guess I'd have to go to bed super early.
Anyway, I work mornings and nights with them. It's called a split shift. I work the morning and then have many hours free then come back in the night to "finish up" so to speak. When I get home, I am tired enough and go to bed within an hour or so. Lately, because of the snow, I have been getting out really late and I'm not sure how much more I can take. Trust me my job is not for everyone. If I get that morning position I wanted, Im not sure if I'd have to work evenings anymore, but I assume I would. Oh well. As long as I am happy. So far so good.
Im back! Next week classes start and I am in the final stretch of my BS! If all goes well and I push as Hard as I can, this can be my LAST year and I will FINALLY have that bachelors. Whew! Anyway, I am taking three classes this semester and I hope to take summer classes and finish up in the fall. I am going ahead with the psychology and I hope it takes me where I want to go.
Oh yeah and I got an A+ in that US History class last semester. Whoo hoo! My GPA went up, up, up!
ACTIVITIES PERTAINING TO MY FUTURE ENDEAVORS
VOLUNTEERING! I got accepted to volunteer as a nurse aide et al at Coney Island Hospital. I went once and I helped out at the pediatric clinic. I think that I will volunteer at the pharmacy if I can. Unless they start giving me some direct patient care, like vital signs at least, I'm going to see what's up at the pharmacy. I also think I will let my doctor know that I can help out over at the clinic he is at if he needs someone. I think I should volunteer at a nursing home or something because I need to have some experience as a CNA or assistant of some sort. We'll see about that part later.
CDL? Is a CDL in my future? I was thinking I would get my CDL when I become permanent at work and they will reimburse me for it. It would be handy when I have to "branch out" later on, heh heh.
Secret plans? Yeah! I still have a few kinks to work out but I am trying to figure out my ever so delicate plans to build my future up right. I just want this year to work out well. If it does, I can breathe a sigh of RELIEF!
CAR?! Oh yeah I forgot to tell you I bought a car. It needed a bandage here and there, but it works! It even goes highway speed! Its not the most beautiful car in the universe, especially since the windows have a strip of tape because they are stuck open, but it gets me from point A to B to C to B and back to A. There are a few other letters I frequent, but those are the most important letters haha. I hope to be able to purchase a better one later on, but with my schedule, Im not even sure If I have the time to look until school is done. I hope it doesn't crap out on me. Without it, I can't work all the hours I do. I will keep my fingers crossed.
I can't even remember the last time I enjoyed any of the things I used to enjoy. All I know is that this summer better be hot or I will be mad. I want to ride my bike this summer and I like to do it when its so hot and there are ozone advisories, ha! Also, now that I have a car, I expect to see at least one meteor shower (although my new sleeping schedule may not permit it) and have a few BBQs in the LI parks. I also plan to go to not so distant, but distant enough places like Gettysburg. I would be scared with my car, but maybe I will risk it.
You know what annoys me? That my webpage has not been updated in so long. I wonder if I even remember how to make the pages! I hope I can do that every now and then. Yeah yeah.
Off the topic, I was wondering if I'd ever have a chance to use my rolling bookbag again. Its so lovely but I dont know if i need it now. hm. How dissapointing.
Well, in other news, I think it would be best if I purchase an EZ pass because 1)i will be taking the tunnel to school because when I get out of work in the morning I wont have enough time to get to class on time. 2)you get a 50c discount with ez pass. 3)When its cold, my only working window (my window) gets cold and stuck and I can't open it to give the attendant the money. I would have to open the door. Come on now that is embarassing. 4)no waiting, especially at the tunnel. It's empty as it is. I also think I will have to park in the garage near the school. I know it's not my nature to spend like this, but I can't drop classes just to save a few bucks. Doing this could mean me finishing school this year or in three. What would you do? Exactly. Besides, I may waste too much time looking for a spot, especially in this snow when I could be getting to class in a less huffed and disheveled way. Garage it is! Then on my days off, I will just go to KCC to study. Its a lot closer and with my alumni status I can take books out of the library there if need be. Neat huh?
Okay, Im done with this entry. I have to eat and get ready for work part II. Then I have a busy weekend getting ready for school. I hope this year works better than last year! GOD HILFE! Last year sucked so much I never want to see it again. Let's get this one about in the right way with the right attitude and all the right motives!
A fine title for an empty entry. It seems I did not clean my room fast enough last month to post anything. HA! It's ok, things have been looking up and I am finally going to spend the weekend with myself and have some "me" time. Hopefully that means I will be posting on here (after this long) and updating my webpage (if i still remember how! haha!). A few things have happened here and there and I figure I should get into the habit of updating this blog again. It will be more difficult now that I have changed schools and this new one does not have as easy access to computers as the old one.
For now, I still have errands to run and thankfully its friday. My job is very strenuous and Im tired! more on that later. Bye for now!
