Wow

Today is no fun. Yesterday I had a headache, migraine most likely. My head hurts now. What did i do? :(

Today I feel trapped. I dont know why. Maybe it's because my bedroom is such a mess. My liver was hurting a few days ago. Not sure if it was because my back belt was on too tight or I am eating way too much processed foods.

It seems as though I am getting anxious about my money situation. Actually it's health coverage this time. I have to go to my coverage counselor at the doc's office to see what kind of coverage the state will give me with my new salary. If I can't get any coverage after this year, I am unsure of what to do. I was hoping to be permanent at my job by now, which meant I would get health coverage. I am still waiting for that class I need and that is supposed to make me permanent with the new position. Im going to give the counselor a visit tomorrow and then tell my slow manager to speed things up, especially if the counselor tells me I wont be entitled to any benefits next year. Then I'd have to make a decision between making money or being covered. Althought I don't plan to get sick next year, I will always remember my surprise hospitalization for nothing back in 1999 for three days. What was wrong with me? Nothing. I assume it was stress. Luckily I had Blue Cross.

I also plan to make a new video. I have to see if my video programs can create the desired effects I have been imagining when I listen to the song.

Gee Whiz its time for work part II... sigh

Waiting for the score...

So anyway, that RPM is sufficient to get me to 40mph, but a little slow. So what did was keep my RPM


WHOO HOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!
ALMOST PERFECT SCORE!!!! 320/330! A!A!A! A!A!A!

ahem

Okay, like I was saying, today I kept my RPM lower and there was a lot of traffic. And it didn't get hotter than usual. This may be beneficial. I will keep testing this hypothesis and let you know.

And now I gloat hee heeeeeee :D

:: Jane Dee 8:58:00 AM [+] ::
...
Gee whiz!

Blogger has been acting up lately. Well, it erased TWO of my posts. In any case, here is a summary of the summary:

My car is okay. It was just the battery.
I have bought/will buy cool gifts for all my friends this year.
The heavy rain caused a minor flood in my car; need to add more tape.
Still waiting for that shuttle position.
Still working in my webpage revamp. You can see one of my new pages, Snail Cam

Im in class. We are to get our tests back today. I think I did well. Since I have a long break between classes, I'm going to go downtown to buy some clothes that I won't be able to wear because I just wear my FedEx clothes all day/night.

Oh yeah, I think I figured out how to prevent my car from overheating. See, when I leave my car idle for 30 minutes, it doesn't over heat. Most of the time, the RPM is about 1000. NYC traffic is kinda stop and go and I have been keeping track and I go from 1000 to 3000 RPM in a matter of seconds over and over again within the span of a few minutes. Well, my car seems to never overheat or even get hot when I dont go over 1500 RPM. This speed is sufficient to get me to 40mph...

uh oh we're going over the test now...

Another Entry Disappeared

Well after all that typing Blogger decides to censor my entry? I doubt it but here is a summary of what I typed yesterday:

...

Yes that was all.

Anyway, I did write about how my car is okay now. It was only the battery. Yesterday/night's downpour created a little flood in my car but its ok. I'm just glad I put on new tape before it rained otherwise my whole car would be wet. Ha!

Not much else to say here besides that a)I'm still working on my webpage revamp and b)still thinking about a newer car. Oh then there is the "when the hell am I going to get shuttle already" dilemma. Patience grasshopper. At least this year everyone has or will get cool presents for their birthday.

I was cleaning up and I found a stash of metrocard money in the place I used to hide it. I was so happy at the "no more mass transit" idea that I used it to buy a new pair of shoes hehe. Take that MTA!!!


Now I must put a new music mix on my MP3 player.

Curve goes pleasing like music

Huh?

Yeah well, tell that to a computer box that came down the ramp at FedEx today. I think these companies should invest in a good translator.

And now, to complain...

Yes first order of complaining is my car. I managed to break it somehow because I was tying stuff under my car that was loose. Now it wont start. huh? I didnt move anything. Maybe it's the battery... or better yet, maybe its time for a new(er) car. I would like to have one that works and doesn't set off alarms in the cars i drive past. LOL! GANGSTA YO! Im glad I didnt fix anything too much on it. If I junk it soon, I want my water pump back! Ha!

Second order of complaining is stress... yup, this morning was not cool. I was all rushed and huffy because my cat was sick and was acting like she ate something poisionous. Then in my haste, I left the heater on... then the morning sort took forEVER and I left later than usual even though we had an early start. I tried to call my house but no one was picking up even though I KNOW everyone was home. So I had to go BACK home to turn off the heater and check on Meux Meux (the cat). She was okay, but I had a midterm to get to today and by the time I left it was 9am and my class starts at 10:15am.... Not only that, I had to borrow G's car and since he isnt assigned to my EZ Pass, I knew I had to pay cash and wait on line. BAH! Well, lucky me, I got to class on time (without driving like a maniac) and I think I did well. I think I scored A- at least.

However, my car is not the only thing overheating. I'VE been overheating lately. This morning I was running the fan on my face because it was completely flushed and hot and red. In class I had to practically take off all my clothes because I was going to overheat. I dunno. All I know is that my face gets really red and hot. I need some dex-cool

Im sleepy... i need more food.

OH POO!!

So much for good fortune... my car is acting up again! I'm mad, not because I am out of a car for now, but because I should have gotten the shuttle position and been working more hours so I could finally finance a car. I am not too fond of my current car. Now I broke it >:|

My insurance was just about up this month I think. I would rather not have another lapse in coverage because that makes your rates go up... I need a new(er) car! This stinks. Oh well.

:: Jane Dee 12:14:00 PM [+] ::
...
:: 3.21.2005 ::
Enough with the monotony!!!

I've completed another boring stats homwork... again. I think I've exhausted the issue here. After the midterm, I'm going to get started on my substance abuse presentation. I have all these books I need to read and extract from. That will be interesting.

I want to go home!! This lab smells!

:: Jane Dee 12:31:00 PM [+] ::

Someone Smells...

Because I have my stats midterm tomorrow, I had to work in the PC lab and boy does it smell in here! Phew. The person before me must not wash his balls thoroughly!

In any case, I am not nervous about tomorrow's test because I am not trying to get on any dean's list or get stars like I was last year. Im just trying to get A's lol. Seriously though, this class is quite easy (just as easy as the last stats class I had, except that was done on paper) and if I do "bad" (i.e., B) I will be mad.

Today at work was interesting. I punched in 4 minutes early so I could run back to the car and get my radio to leave it there so I can listen to it while working tonight. Well, one of the "safety cops" who shall remain nameless, said when I came back in this all authoritative tone "when you punch in you go straight to work." Excuse me? So does that mean I have to stand by the machine and wait for the exact time to appear to punch in? I had 4 whole minutes before work and its none of his business what I do with those four minutes. I'm going to ask my manager when I get back tonight about punching in at the exact moment and if I could get penalized for using up minutes not working to get my radio. If he doesnt have a problem with that, I will make sure I tell Mr. safety to mind his business... please. I don't like being bossed around by non bosses.

Anyway, I went to KCC on the weekend and got my alumni card! I took out 11 books for my research and I couldn't be happier. Today in school I went to the ID pffice and asked if I could get the hole punched in my KCC card... they complied! So now I can wear all three of my IDs on my fab-o ID lanyard. Not only that, they gave me a free chain to use with the ID card(s). Wow, I guess my tuition is doing something.

I also had an early early start this morning at work and I had a chance to catch some drizzle. It was very nice. It made me nervous though because it reminded me of the weather when I went back to KCC (2003!) and was doing MicroBio and then when I started Nursing classes (2004, my goodness). Im glad last year is over. It sucked so much.

I still think about nursing and all that pertaining to it. I still get sad about what happened but I guess it is for the best. I don't have anything particularly against nursing, but I am definately not going back to KCC. If I go back to nursing it would have to be at a four year school. What would be the point otherwise? So far I am happy with my decision to finish up the Bachelors and then take it from there. I still really want to go to Arizona, but we'll see. If I do well with psychology, maybe I can get a masters. Who knows.

OW My EYES

Ughhh all this elaborate reading is making my eyes sting.

By the way, I was approached whilst eating my sandwich in the cafeteria by a man handing out brochures to donate your blood at the blood drive (I think Im -O). As I visually followed him walk around the cafeteria, I noticed he only gave brochures to all the white kids. Interesting. Racist? Probably.

Its 4:30... what do I do? Continue reading? or nap on this keyboard? Hm.

Learning With Machines

ARGH! Im in KCC trying to read my notes from my substance abuse class which are all on adobe. I hate reading important material on computer especially adobe format. My eyes!!!

Well, in some good news, I finally paid my KCC Alumni dues and now I can start enjoying the olympic sized swimming pool and acess to books. I also get 10% off at the bookstore. I guess that would all be even better if I had my ID. I wanted to get it today but they had a sign that said the ID machine is temporarily out of order. Humph! I bet it works fine, its the workers who are temporarily out of order. I don't like the security office very much. I should have gotten my Aluni ID a few years ago but when I went the woman gave me attitude and said she didnt know what I was talking about. Yeah. Okay.

Im sleepy. I knew I should have bought coffee before I came to this lab. YAWN!!!

My Car is Hot

No really, it is. My car is not the best machine in the maduniverse thus it has a few problems. One of the most pressing concerns is the high potential of my car overheating. My car had overheated on the Gowanus once before and I had to get a new water pump. So far, its been good because its been so cold that not being hot enough was more of the issue. However, now that the temperature has warmed up and the traffic is becoming more dense, I've been idling in traffic more and I noticed today that my temperature was higher today than it's been. Today, because we got out early, I took the Gowanus to the tunnel and I was moving slower longer than I do taking Ocean Parkway. So a few things: 1)I am not going to take the Gowanus, especially now that its hotter 2) I am going to take Ocean Parkway to the Prospect to hamilton Avenue so if my car overheats, I have an easy escape thru the streets. 3)The toll of the tunnel costs more now ($4.50) so I need to see if I can cut costs 4) The warm weather makes parking harder on mondays.

Okay anyway, I think I should get my radiator flushed. maybe that would help? who knows. All I know is that I need a new car. HA!!

I am in class (stats) and we are discussing graphs and phi coefficients !!YAWN!!

I don't have my late class today, so I get to go home right after this class. That is good because I will save $4.50 because I will have enough time to take the bridge. I just hope its not too hot so I overheat! Darn :/

Uncomfortable Computer Lab

Well, Im back at KCC and the Lab I like is not open on Sundays. That means that I have to stay here, the library lab. And Im not talking about the one on the mezzanine - I like that one - Im talking about the one in the basement. Bleh. The compute is angled in such an odd position that I am not comfy. Well, I only have to stay here as long as I need to finish my last stats homework. Then I leave.

I would like to also complain about something that always happens to me: I spill the fish tank filter EVERYTIME I take it out to change it. Yesternight, I was cleaning my fish tank and so that means I change the filter. Just when I think I have a hold on it, SPLASH! All over the floor. Mind you it's not a linoleum floor, it CARPET. So you can imagine yucky algae and fish poop filled charcoal filter water all over my carpet gingerly spashed all over the part of my room with the most bird seeds. What a joy to clean up. Well, the only good news about that is that there is a new edition to my tank - an african dwarf frog and a snail. The frog is pretty lively but the snail- well, he plays his part very well.

Oh In some other cool news, FedEx sponsors the MS Society and they have a 150 mile bike tour in Tennessee! Its called the FedEx Rock and Roll Bike tour... I'm thinking about joining. Maybe I can raise the funds ($200 minimum pledge) within my station :)

Ok enough foolin' around I have STATS to do!!!! (gasp ohh ahh)

Back In the Old Skool

Some days are different than others. Yup.

Anyway, I am back at KCC doing my stats work. Man, this is some boring stuff.

I also think I need a new bathroom scale. My doctor is probably right. I mean, last night I weighed 128 and today I weighed 124. I lose 3-6 pounds every other day on that scale. Sometimes, I weigh more when Im naked than when I have clothes on. See that is not a good sign. I wish I had one of those scales you see at the doctors office with the weights you slide form side to side. It cant go wrong because you always "zero" it. Oh well.

I have a joke for you: What has fins but cant swim? A 59 Cadillac! (Wonk wonk) (Well, its better than my laffy taffy joke of "What knows its ABCs but cant see? A Dictionary!! [HUH?])

Anyway I best be getting back to my stats program.

WHEW

I think I just finished reorganizing my webpage. I really have to use the bathroom but I dont want to lose the computer... decisions, decisions :(

In other news.... oh wait there is no other news yet.

Well anyway, I have only a few new pages to add to my site, but most of the changes are just improvements of exisiting stuff. It should be better than before. I also have tons of stuff to upload that has been sitting around for a long time, but I just never put it up. Expect to see that too. I have a lot of pictures and articles to publish from trips. I also have stuff to put on the Pauly page and I WILL get back to updating Astronomy (though I may do something new with that) now that I have a car and can fantasize about meteor showers once again. I am not 100% sure now, but I do plan to post mp3s and mpegs if the server lets me. I think they allow that now. I have to see. This will be fun.

I think I should use the bathroom :(

I Think the Ice Stopped

Well yay me! I didn't have to go to work this morning. I am in class. What fun. Im working on my webpage whilst taking notes, hee haw. After this class, Im going to start recatagorizing my webpage. It will look the same but will make more sense.

:: Jane Dee 9:52:00 AM [+] ::
...
YAWN!!!

I get up around 5am, you know and today, because there is ICE everywhere, is a late start at work. Well, on the one hand I'm glad that I don't have to go in because I'd have to leave after about an hour to get to class and then I'd most likely be late. However, I wonder if that professor is even going to show up because he travels a long distance. I have been online since 6am so I could check if he posted anything. No luck yet. I wonder if I should even go in at all. Days like this blow.

For some reason, I was thinking about having my traditional roll with cream cheese and an extra large coffee. I always used to eat that but I haven't had access to quality rolls coming to City so I can just dream away. Not only that, days like today are rough.

I guess I can get ready for school and leave early. If anything I can use the computer lab. I think it opens at 9am. (I Just checked; its 9am) I bought a CCNY logo tote bag and I am just going to use that today. No alternate side today because its Wednesday. That's always good.

In class and multitasking heh heh

Guess where I am! Im in stats class ha! Right now, he is talking about correlation. Yawn. This class is ok. I have to clarify variables though. I am going to email him my questions because that would be easier. I should ask him right after class. I don't have another class after. All I have to do is move my car because I parked it real far from school. Today was rough! There was a ripped open tractor trailer on the Belt Parkway and he scattered all his cargo (TOILET TISSUE, HAR HAR!!) Then there was traffic all over the place on my way to school. Then there was no parking! Im confused. Well, I better take notes now :P

In the Old School, Nothing New

I'm at the KCC library now. I am supposed to be studing stats. Well, I will. I just like to update this thing OK???? DANG yo! Just kidding.

Today is a beautiful day. So beautiful that I want to study and get the hell out of here so I can manufacture some Vitamin D today. I was looking out the window of this lab Im in and you can see the water glittering in the sun from here. It's a pretty sight and it made me think "gee, I must like being around pretty nature things." That got me thinking that must be why I do well at KCC and get bored at City. City isnt as bad as LIU was (ugh!!!) because they have some pretty nice buildings (landmarks!) and the neighborhood isn't so bad. Well, I wonder if this is the reason I want to go to Arizona. I mean, the scenery is really breathtaking with all the reds and oranges and a bright sun. I like the sun. It makes me happy. I want to go there because its pretty and sunny. Like KCC. Its pretty and when its sunny it actually looks good. Other schools, like LIU, when its sunny, you can REALLY see how ugly it is BLEH! I really like KCC even though there a few people here I can do without hehe :)

Well, I guess I should get started on my stats. I have four homeowrks to or something. Maybe when I leave i can go and buy some bird seeds somewhere.. hm.

Three Four Five!

Hey everbody, look at the numerical date for today... it's 3/4/5! HA

Anyway, my last post seems to have disappeared...?

Well, I wrote about work et al. Ok, anyway, the most important news of that post was that my website is going to be THREE YEARS OLD April 1, 2005. Dang time flies.

I was considering giving it a make-over, but then I said to myself "Jane, please. If you don't even have time to update it what makes you think that youre going to have time to give it a complete redo?" I don't know, but there are more reasons that just "being busy" that have made me lazy about updating. Remember, I wasn't feeling all too well last year and I was NOT interested in anything fun. This year may be different. With a new digicam (it takes movies!!) I want go exploring again! All I have to do now is hope it gets hot and Im all set. Oh that and a new SUPER lunch box. Check it out! (Also look at my choice of water bottle and work boots!)

Well anyway, Im wondering if I should really change the webpage completely or keep the theme. I should do away with a lot of the content that I have no plan to keep up with. Well, we'll see.

I have to put some tape on my car now lol!
