the Good, the Bad & the Ugly
Good: I picked up my financial aid check today! Woot!!
Bad: I could have picked it up yesterday.
Ugly: My coworker would not cover my last 30 minutes of walk-in hours yesterday so I could get to the Bursar's office before they closed at 4:30pm.
Good: I was selected as an yearly-review evaluator for above mentioned co-worker. Hello Karma!
Bad: My Monday went from mediocre to total crap in less than 1 hour.
Ugly: The idiot drivers on the highway & my slight weight gain of .4lbs sent me over the edge into a completely pissy mood.
Good: the campus library offers 1 hr Photoshop classes every semester & I signed up. Yay!
Bad: They are offered during my walk-in hours.
Ugly: Supervisor alluded to the fact that she didn't want me to miss walk-in hours because then SHE would have to do them...so no personal development for me. thank.you.very.much. I have conceded that I will NEVER know alot about Photoshop...I don't learn well by reading books/manuals & self teaching...heck a few years ago I did an on-line course and that was a disaster. I was hoping to learn it more from a graphic design perspective, not just touching up photos..alas, that will not happen. Not being able to take these classes was a contributing component to my completely crappy Monday.
Good: We are going to Texas Roadhouse for dinner tonight...to celebrate receiving my financial aid check. Tee! I may have to consume some alcohol...but probably won't.
Bad: I will probably consume too many points at dinner tonight.
Ugly: Right now, I don't give a hoot.
Good: After dinner, we will proceed to Bath & Body Works at the mall so I can get a ScentBug, which is just about the cutest little air freshener thingee to ever exist. I need it for my office. There are some stinky college kids.
Bad: After B&BW there will be no more "fun" shopping...back to reality, which sucks right now.
Ugly: psycho-classmate left me with the duty of getting candy/treats for our presentation tomorrow night..we are playing Jeopardy & need "prizes"...she must think I'm made of money. She also left me with making the necessary copies for handouts.
Good: I am no longer meeting with psycho-classmate today to review our presentation for tomorrow night's class.
Bad: After more than 20 emails since Saturday, she came to the realization that we indeed did NOT need to meet.
Ugly: I hope she doesn't have a nervous breakdown during the presentation tomorrow, based on her emails, that is a great possibility. honest. she's flippin' nuts.
Good: I made the cutest little mini album over the weekend & plan to use it for pictures of E of course. You can see it here.
Bad: I don't have as much time to scrapbook as I would like.
Ugly: I haven't sewn a single thing in about two weeks now. *sad sad face*
