Here I am in my "blue mood", ha ha
I managed to get through my presentation without embarrasing myself, which I thought was a "win". Right now our printer doesn't work ~ so I e-mailed both my power point presentation and the notes that were supposed to accompany it. The power point made it, but unfortunately my notes didn't, so I spent my 20 min lunch highlighting in orange the points I wanted to make. It worked out OK. It was strictly voluntary, for extra points, so I didn't have to worry about being "correct" in my interpretation. Holy cow, it was a bitch to read. I truly dislike "academic writing". I swear that there is some sort of app that you can run your paper through that will replace some words with fancy ones that make a reader such as myself (and I'm pretty well read, if I do say so myself) have a dictionary handy and use it at least 5-10 times on each page. I was a bit tempted to put a vocabulary list on one slide of the power point to make my point, but I don't think my Prof. would have found it funny.
I had a rather disappointing morning at work ~ the Doc wasn't happy with how I scheduled a patient, and although I was able to re-arrange things to suit him, I still felt terrible about it. He and I just don't speak the same language, and without much feedback, I'm at a loss. I guess I will need to take the upper hand and try talking to him more often. It's kind of weird to feel uncomfortable talking to one of my bosses, as I usually don't have a problem talking to anyone ~ at least one on one.
Well, gotta run, bills to pay, etc!
