~ok, this crazy 5 week mini term is getting to me..."calgon, take me away"
~i have a midterm tomorrow. we've only had 5 classes so far. that is SO weird.
~i made video #1 (of 2) on Monday. they dubbed it to a DVD for me. I got home. it wouldn't play on either of my computers. WTH? they re-dubbed to a new DVD yesterday. same problem. then I downloaded some VLC crap to be able play it on the computer. it played but not well. not well enough to play & pause repeatedly so that I can TRANSCRIBE the ENTIRE 25 minutes!!
~i put it on the DVD player last night. works perfectly, but that is such an inconvenience. if I could just play it on my computer...it would be so much easier.
~it took me more than 1 hour to transcribe 12 minutes last night. hoping to do other 12 minutes either tonight or Thursday. combine that with the fact that E was not cooperating in the sleep department last night.
~the video is due on Tuesday along with a 2-3 page analysis paper. I need to finish the transcription, obviously BEFORE I hand it in and then also do this paper. Ugh!!
~guess who got stuck doing a counseling role play yesterday with Ms. Excessive Self Disclosure? Yep, cuz that is my crap-luck.
~O has been out of town for work all week. that is both a relief and a burden. I have had to drive my sitter home everyday after work and it's one hour roundtrip (at least) and I ALWAYS get caught in the dreaded "rush hour" traffic.
~have I mentioned I've done very little studying for the midterm?!? I don't think it will be an awful exam, but I still don't feel prepared. at least I haven't missed 3 classes like some others.
~and then I absolutely HAVE to run tonight. I have a 5K on Saturday. I MUST beat my last time or I'll cry for days. I am leaving work early (3pm) today so I can get sitter home and then either study or work on transciption somewhat and hope E can play a little...even if it's just 15 minutes, it's better than nothing. I'm desperate. anyone want to come over and watch E for me?
~and lastly...i've had very little work to do here in my position since I started in January. well guess who just got a TON of 'tasks' dumped on her? i'm also still working on an insane database project that seems to have NO end. timing stinks.
~bright side: only 5 classes left. i will be at the beach in 17 days!
~so I better quit blogging and do my work...
