more work stuff

So today I'm learning new words, instead of running into overused corporate-made words. I learned of words like "shimming"* and "exigency."**

I've also been learning things like corporate strategies for blogging, and government strategies for "cyber terrorism." (Which to me means fighting off popups, spam, and large quantities of porn, but am guessing they mean something different).

Busy, busy. Tonight am gonna call social security and let them know that the form they sent me doesn't ask for my income information, like they said it would. Am also planning to call up a couple of numbers that may hopefully be able to help me with my health. Also should pester Tim about what's going on with trying to get me insurance, and to make sure he's still planning on having me in Monday instead of Tuesday next week. (Yay for all-nighters and Denny's! ee)

Yesterday was a busy day. A very busy day. After not much sleep (couple hours), had worked for 7-some hours, and came home to find my acceptance letter to Montgomery College. (^*^) I immediately called them up (there was a missing paper that was supposed to be attached), and they got me the phone numbers and information I'd need to take care of everything.

I created a login to their website, printed out the financial aid forms and filled them out, and looked over the classes. I called up my parents and got them to fax me a copy of my diploma, which thanks to eFax, I was able to receive in my email, convert to a JPEG, and upload to my website. Did not figure out how to print the thing from Linux (not through Firefox, anyways), but when I got to the college to talk to people and submit my paperwork, they allowed me to print it off my website from there. hee

So now all my financial aid paperwork is in (which was due by the coming Monday, so that's good), and I talked a bit with a school councilor person. He gave me some packets of information, and I signed up for an orientation next Thursday evening to go over all the stuff and be prepared to sign up for classes. I'm going to probably be signing up for English, Math, and two other classes to become a full-time student. It shouldn't be too hard to work that around my work schedule (especially since my work schedule is pretty flexible).

And once I've got all my classes and schedules worked out, I should be going to school starting August 29. (^*^)! This makes me so incredibly happy.. the thought of going to school, finally. It almost makes me cry. I've been really wanting to do something with my life for so long, and as soon as I was looking at the possibilities, I got laid off from my job, and my Lyme disease systems started actively manifesting.

It's been two years now, and while I still have to work at trying to help out my health, I have new hope at the prospect of starting my education, and really getting on the path I'd like to be on.

Thanks. (^*^) Mentioned it to Tim today. Shouldn't get in the way of anything really, but thought it'd be good to let him know in advance, mya.

Hey, good luck with your other job! Still got a week or two? It'll be strange not having you around any more at work.. even though we barely see each other there, anyway. ee

Good going!! Currently I'm house sitting for a... friend who's place I cannot walk around in sockfooted, never mind barefooted, it's that bad. But she does need someone to look after the cat.

Fankes. (^*^) And oo my.. ee, hope ya survive that one okae

I'm only going to be spending a couple of days there, all told. Not only did she not leave anything edible in the house, but, if she expected me to stay there with her cat, she didn't leave me any money for food, and I'll be damned if I'm buying it for her.
