I survived......

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! 

Love, 365


  1. I refuse to schedule any of my boss's appointments anymore because it got the point where no matter what day and time I scheduled a client, he would cancel or change it.

    I know a lot of attorneys who probably use that app....

    1. Well, I can't avoid it because it's part of my job! It's only certain appointments that I apparently have issues with knowing how he wants them done. Luckily I don't have to make personal appointments for these Dr's, but if I did, I'd probably have the same issue.


Goodbye, Stephen Hawking

(Bing images) This week we saw the death of Stephen Hawking.  He finally lost his battle with ALS, after having lived with the diseas...
