As you can see, I am so bored I keep hitting enter and publishing stuff that makes no sense. I'm telling you, the only highlight of my day is work. Go figure. Noisy diesel trucks apparently are my thing. I hope it gets a little colder (or very cold, but no snow!!!!!) so I can wear my way cool Fedex ski suit thing. It will be awesome to wear that with red lipstick and glitter on my eyes because I won't sweat enough to rub my face, so I can wear makeup. How cuuuute!
Oy I'm losing it. C'mon Earth, spin a 'lil faster so the time goes by!!!

RiGGatoni (Yes with two G's)
Yup that was the main entree choice today at the salad bar. Yuck-o. Its bad enough it looked horrid, it has to be spelled horrid too. Well, not much going on here today. I have no sleep class and today in sexuality class we watched half of ""Paris is Burning" which is a movie about drag queens or something. Not something I would watch on my own time but whatever.
So it's countdown time and I am trying to get my act together and start my papers. For developmental, we have to analyze the kid in some kids book. I picked "Dear Mr. Henshaw" by Beverly Cleary. I've never read any of her books nor did I care much for the Ramona show on PBS. I actually thought Ramona was quite an idiot, spilling blue stuff on herself or whatnot. Well, that's my opinion. This book is allright though, probably because it doesn't involve Ramona.
Other than that, I have to analyze the characters in the movie "Girl Interrupted." Now I have to say that CCNY psychology has a funny way to teach psychology. They make you watch all these hollywood renditions of disorders. I hate movies. Well, I guess it's good because if this was a "real" program, I'd be stuck in a psych ward. Not that I wouldn't want to do that, it's just that I don't have the time now that I have a "real" job. :) oh well
So I'm thinking about how I will make prints of the articles I need for class. City has a 15 page limit but if you can print during a shift change, the new shift won't know you printed before. I didn't catch one yet. We'll see after I finish up here. If not, I will use the rest of the money in my copy account to print out what I need. I was trying to use that account up anyway. I don't want to give this school any free money. I wish I had time to go to KCC. I can just hit print and that's that. Last resort is printing at work. I just hate being wasteful. Oh well, again.
Hurrah! I finally have some good news to tell you!
The first order of business is that my cat finally came back from the pyre. Just so you know, ashes are white and have bits of bone in them. I took a scoop for myself and put it in a little glass bottle. My sister took the rest and will buy an urn for him. She says they have some on E-bay! How funny is that. Sigh. Anyway this is him:
Second order of business is that the school finally sent me that oh-so-anticipated letter about my graduation status. Fortunately for me, Im ALL CLEARED and this is it! All I have to do is pass this semester and I'm good to go! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The rest of the news is pretty non-exciting. I washed all three of my cats for fleas and it didnt work. Now I have to wash them again, but don't know when because it's cold. I also returned some boots and now I realized I have no boots and thus waiting for a replacement pair. Etc etc, anyway.
Lately the thing that has been most on my mind is what to do after college. I am sooo leaning towards Plan X and scrapping Plan A and incorporating Plan B somewhere instead with Plan X. The thing is that I have until Decemeber 14 or so to decide. If I let the deadline run out then the decision is made without any yes or no answer. I probably should put my foot down abouut something so I don't look like a slacker. I guess I'm just scared. I want to make the right decision and either way, it will cost a lot of money so that is not going to be taken into consideration. I just want to be happy, so I'm trying to see which plan gives me the most opportunity to make the most out of life. I guess that is the best way too look at things for now.
SOooo... right now Im supposed to be working on my papers and look at me. I'm not doing anything. Well, I did go to the library and get the books I need for the papers. Thats progress right? Well, I have a lot of stuff to print out for another paper and I have to go to KCC to do that. You know how cheap CCNY is with their paper. They raised the limit to 15 per day, HOOAH! (eyes rolling)
What to do.... uhm. I guess I should eat, put my clothes away and get my stuff ready for work. Then figure out how I will attack paper 1. Oh yeah then I have to get a movie and anaylze some crap. ugh. Im leaving school with a bang indeed.

For all you fat, arrogent men who want to insult me because I ate one pound of bacon on the biggest EATING HOLIDAY of the year....
Now, I must eat more bacon and continue to attract men...

Damn Yankee... Kangaroos!
I was sitting in my room not too many minutes ago, and hear my name being yelled out. Apparently, there was a huge-ass OPOSSUM in the shed, hiding in a box, scared to death because my mother was yelling at it...
It looked just like this!
And she was cursing it out because she was wondering who or what was going in the shed and eating her merchandise, INCLUDING GLASS ITEMS, such as a candleholder!
I felt so bad for the creature, and apparently they don't usually carry rabia (as my mother says it). Now I know what I saw a couple years ago on the shed. It wasn't a racoon it had to be a POSSUM! Anyway, she scared it out of the shed and I wanted to keep it but it was pretty smelly, probably from peeing on itself because it thought my mother was going to kill it. It ran down the alley and then down the driveway and then hid in the neighbors yard. Po' thing. It was really cute though.
By the way, I was going to get the squirrel trap out... until I saw how big it was... Just for the record those things are the size of a large cat. NOT including the tail.

Ow, my head! I have a migraine! Ok, don't panic...
Im not sure if it was from too much sleep (8 hours) or the bad dream I had or all the apricots I ate last night.... OWWOWwowowoOWOWOW!
That's right folks, only TWO more Saturday classes to go! Next week there is no class because of Thanksgiving (I will be thanking Jesus for the break for sure) and then we have only two classes left... then the final! WHOO HOOO!!!!
Ahem. Anyway, I am very excited that the semester is finally going away. However, I am concerned about that Saturday class in that she hadn't returned our midterm grades YET! She claims next week. I think not. I better get at least a B in that class. I just hate it so much. Today we had another test and I think I did okay. I KNOW I got the question about immunology correct because I remembered it all from MicroBio.
Speaking of microbio, I saw my old micro professor (finally) not too long ago. All is well at the old alma mater. I bought a logo pin to wear at graduation while I was there.
Yes and I also ordered everything I needed for graduation (regalia). I had to order the Psi Chi stuff myself. That professor who is supposedly running the thing now is not very helpful. So I called the head office and they said I can just send it in myself. Ja. Now if only I can find out where my certificate went. I will probably have to reorder it like that other prof said. Sigh. Can't anyone do their job? Well, I also order my Golden Key stuff. For both societies, I ordered a gold emblem pin, honor cord and honor medal. I will wear the cords at graduation and have a set of pins: KCC, CCNY (yes bought that too along with an emblem keychain), Psi Chi, Golden Key. I also have my pendant ready to wear to graduation. I have two princess cut necklaces in my two school's colors: Orange for KCC and Purple (supposed to be lilac) for CCNY. I also have my class ring ready and by the time commencement rolls around, I will have my diploma in my possession. Hopefully by commencement, I will have chosen a graduate path. Haw haw. All that is left for graduation is pictures and what I will wear! I may also opt to buy a sweatshirt.
And now, at least lately, I've been pondering what path to take after graduation. I've been leaning towards Plan X (called that because it is very strange and new to me) and I am not ready to tell you all what that is. The exciting thing about Path X is that I will have less school and more fun. I will also have more sleep. Can you see why I'm leaning? Plan A meant work and school for a long time and not much sleep. Im tired enough as it is. I mean look at the facts now. I can't even drive to school anymore because I was falling asleep at the wheel. Now imagine me with LESS sleep driving even more miles at even odder hours. I see "accident," do you? Yeah that is not good to have when your job is dependant on your driving record. Hm...
Well, I have until December 6 to make a decision. Then I have another chance December 14. After that Plan A ain't happenin'. And then I will wonder why I thought of it in the first place.... oh right to mend my wounded soul. PFfFFfffffTTTTTttttt!
As The semester wanes, I grow more and more anxious to the fact that I am on the crux of an important time of my life. Hence, I have increased stress and reduced tolerance for things, especially stupidity. Let me entertain your mind whilst I vent my frustrations.
First and foremost, I hate the A train. It smells and the people that ride it smell. Today for instance, there was a man taking up two seats and a large area of the train car with his bike. To top it off, he smelled. I think he must have a "career" as a bike messenger and thinks it is okay to not shower after sweating all day. I had to rub creme parfum on my hands to cover up his foul smell. In any case, that pissed me off.
Next, I come to class, even though I don't want to, and take my notes and try to do well. I work five days a week at a job that requires a lot of physical labor. Do you think I want to come to class? NO. Do you think I care about the plight of someone who doesn't work and "can't manage" to come to class to take notes? NO. So when the same dude who is always out asks me repeatedly for my notes, I get slightly annoyed. Even for the midterm, he wanted to see my notes.... UHM if you know you are going to be absent alot, make it your business to tell someone you think takes good notes that you will be bugging them a lot. Say "Hi, I'm __(name)__. I have a busy schedule and may be out a lot, would it be okay if I read your notes from time to time?" Then EACH time you want notes, that someone took after MAKING THE ENORMOUS EFFORT to come to class to get, you say "excuse me, would it be okay if I looked at your notes?" or "Excuse me, I wasnt here, do you know what the prof went over on Thursday?" HELLO PEOPLE A LITTLE CURTESY GOES A LONG WAY AND PREVENTS ME FROM BECOMING A COMPLETE ASSHOLE. HUMBLE YOURSELF FOR BEING SUCH AN IDIOT AND LAZY AND INCOMPETENT. MOST PEOPLE DONT WANT TO HELP JERKS. Yes, I was nasty to him, and yes I did let the fool see my notes even though I wanted to strangle him. Next time he asks if I was present last class I will say "no."
NOW Im in the computer lab trying to type up a paper due today. Its non-essential so maybe I will ask her if I can give it in Thursday. UGH. If I make it thru this semester it will be an accomplishment in itself.

Anyway, like I was saying, I'm at an important time in my life where I'm trying to decide what to do next. Is it A or B? I don't know. All I know is that I don't have much time to make a decision, and who knows, it could already be too late.
I went to the dentist today to see about this tooth that supposedly needed a root canal... well, when he opened it up, he removed all the decay without exposing the pulp! I got lucky! NO ROOT CANAL! Yippee! Now I have to decide if I want to purchase dental insurance for next year. I have about a week to decide that and I will see how this filling holds up. If I can finally eat ice cream on that side by next week, I wont get the insurance for next year. However, if it hurts, I better buy it and hope I dont need the root canal. Well, I got a cleaning and I got a very good grade on my dental hygiene. However, my gums are raw from all the scraping.
So I have an hour before I have to leave for work. I wonder if I will think some more on the bus. I have been thinking about my career optiond for quite a while now and now that the time has come to make a move, I am becoming anxious. What do I do??
In other news, I have to get to my new doctor under my new insurance plan. I need to have all my prescriptions rewritten so I can get them through Cigna. And I also have to follow up with that echocardiogram. Im sure the tightness and such is due to my allergies. Well, at least I hope its due to that.
Im going to finish cleaning up here. Maybe I will think of an answer.... pfft!

Long Time No Blog
So its been a while since I last posted anything. Well, you didn't miss much. Some things of note are:
I recieved my class ring - it's very nice and shiny.
My cat Explosion died - he was 15 years old. His remains should be ready soon. I wish I was able to stay with him when he finally died, but I figured he would be better off with my sister who, by the way, is NOT taking it very well.
Im doing well in school despite my best efforts not to - I got and A in my sleep class midterm and an A in my developmental class. I am still waiting for the grades to come back for abnormal and sexuality class, but Im sure I did ok. Im still not studying hard though.
Im at a time of crisis - I am at the crux (?) of making an important life decision, i.e., what I want to persue as a career, and I am raking my brains, making lists, and asking the same questions over and over, all to get me to the same place of confusion.
Well, since I'm at work, I will have to type more later. See ya.
