lost can go to hell!
Dayum that episode! Poor Sawyer *cries* I didn't want the episode to end! It was so good. I am very much looking forward to the next two - but if they kill me dead as much as this last one did, I'm in trouble. I want to give Sawyer a big ole hug!

In other news, I have to work Saturday :( I dont want to, but we're trying to go paperless in our office, which means we have to prep 1,000 files to be sent out for scanning. Each file takes roughly an hour. It's ridiculous. We're working this Saturday and next for sure. The good thing is we get overtime pay!

Yay for Grey's Anatomy tonight!

*hangs head in shame*

I am a Lost junkie. LauraSue convinced me to rent the first season a couple of weeks ago, so I did. We watched them all and then watched the second season and I have since downloaded the first 3 episodes of Season 3. I'm so hooked.

In other news - I'm up for a promotion at work. That should be fun. It's under my old supervisor, so I'm not sure how I feel about that, but oh well. I applied at much urging from my current supervisor and my CEO. Hopefully I'll get it. If so, I'll be a counselor. And there is a significant pay raise! I can't believe I've been there over a year already. Never did I think I would last a year, lol.

I got Sims2 Pets and the pets are so freakin' cute!! My kitties just had kittens - 3 of them and they are the smallest, cutest things ever!

bad week
Firs tof all, LauraSue! I'm sorry for not doing anything with PH this week :( Read on and you'll see why.

So Monday I wake up with my stomach feeling like it's trying to claw its way out of my body. Not happy. I also have a fever. I decide not to go to work, but I have a lab appointment to get some blood work redone and I cant miss it (I'm apparently very low in protein as well as very dehydrated - I"ve been going back every couple of weeks to get bloodwork done). So I go get my bloodwork done, come back home and pass out. I sleep most of the day and then it's Tuesday and I have to go to work. I'm feeling marginally better, but not really. So Tuesday and Wednesday I would come home and crawl in bed and sleep off and on until time to take a shower and go to bed for real.

Then Thursday happens. I fell at work. Of course I fell on my knees - on our hard floors. It hurt sooooooooooooo bad. And then I couldnt get up. I had three of my co-workers (all female) and they couldnt get me up. So we waited for my dad and he came up and finally I was standing. My knees hurt so bad and I was so shakey and just not good at all. Of course I couldnt stay at home - oh no. That'd be asking too much. So I have to go back to work after lunch with horribly sore and weak knees. Friday was much of the same - and add in my stomach hurting again and you have a recipe for a perfectly miserable Laura.

Today my stomach is still hurting and my sister's best friend's wedding was today. I HAD to go to it. So I go. And it was beautiful And made me sad because I want that so bad. But that's beside the point. I had to stand by the bride book to make sure everyone who came to the reception signed the book. That means I had to stand for forever with my knees being sore and talk to people I dont know. This did not a Laura happy make. After everything wore down a bit and most of the people left a few of the groomsmen and bridesmaids were dancing and it was just hilarious. And we decorated the car which was great fun.

Oh yes - there was one little bright spot in my week. Friday I found out I have a job interview with Crisis Line/Safe House, so that's exciting. I really cant wait for that. It's on Monday afternoon.

So that was my week - barrells of fun, eh? So the rest of the weekend is for relaxing.

The lovely LauraSue made me this beauuuuuuutiful layout!! Thank you *kiss* I love it!!

So. Work sucks. But what's new?

I was going to Florida next week with Kelly but she decided not to go. She and her fiance are moving in together in Atlanta. I guess that's cool. I'm gonna miss her though.

I've been playing the sims A LOT. It's my release. My sims have lots and lots of affairs, lol. It's great.

So I've been talking with LauraSue lately - it's nice to reconnect with her *nods* I bought a headset and we're talking through Skype and it's awesome. I've been too long without laughing like that. She seriously cracks me up!

Kelly got me a spa gift certificate for my birthday. I seriously need to use it. I need to take away some of the stress of work. And home.

So. this is life, I guess. It pretty much sucks.

Kelly got engaged. She's moving to Atlanta soon :( I'm going to miss her a lot.  She's my only friend here, really. I'm gonna be way lonely without her.

Work sucks. I put in to get a promotion to Counselor but because of PERSONAL reasons - nothing to do with my work ethic, etc - I wasnt given the position. Instead, I moved into a new position on the same level as my old position but I'm doing a lot more work and getting a lot mroe stressd - for the same pay. Doesnt seem quite fair, you know? 

I've been looking for another job. I'm not gonna apply for just anything, like I did with this one. I want to work somewhere that I know I'll make a difference. I'm also looking in other states and cities, so I guess that's good. I just need to get away and start new, you  know? Meet new people - get new friends, etc. 

Tomorrow's my birthday. I have nothing exciting planned. Dinner with Kelly, mom and dad. Good times.

Gotten some damn good music lately: Dashboard's new one, 30 Seconds to Mars, Angels and Airwaves, Hinder, AFI's new one (!!!). Music is good. Music makes me happy.

so it's been pretty busy lately.

First was the season finale of Grey's Anatomy which broke me. Totally and completely broke me. I dont know how one becomes so in love with a tv show and it's characters, but I totally have. Poor Izzy! *weep*

Secondly, two weeks from today my sister gets married. Next week she has her wedding portraits taken (in a park downtown), gets her nails done, gets her hair cut, and finishes some of the chocolate and peanut butter balls for the reception. We're gonna be leaving not this Wednesday but next Wednesday to go to Athens and start furiously cooking. That Friday is gonna be so busy. We have the Bridesmaid Luncheon, the wedding rehersal, and then the rehersal dinner. Then eaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrlllllllllyyyyy the next morning we have to get up and start setting up chairs and tables and food for the wedding that starts at 10am. It's gonna be rush rush rush.

Thirdly, my job takes a lot out of me. There's just so much drama there. I am no longer a Counselor Assistant - they terminated that position and moved me to another supervisor and made me a Client Service Specialist. I'm not too happy about that because it takes me a long way away from the counselors, therefore taking me away from the counseling, which I ultimately want to do. I applied for a Counselor position but my old supervisor interviewed me and it was really not a nice interview. I doubt I'll get the position, but I can hope. I should know beginning of next month.

I've been working a lot on my graphics and stuff. I doubt anyone is really that interested in seeing them, but I'll post some stuff I've done lately. Clicky if you wanna see **Warning Very Picture Intense!**Collapse )

26 March 2006 @ 11:11 pm
Tonight's episode of Grey's Anatomy just broke me. I'd seen it before and it broke me then too. So much pain and love and sometimes you cant tell where one ends and the other begins.

In other news: work sucks. I'm looking for a new job. There's too much bullshit at my job. No one wants to take responsibility for anything that they need to take responsibility for and I end up on the losing end of things. It sucks. I dont get paid enough to deal with their shit.

After not posting since September, you have just been caught up with whats going on in the life of Laura. Pretty boring, huh?

I had a very blah day today. I rented a couple of cheesy romantic comedies and watched them today. I also made a new mesh for the sims2, which I'm excited about. And that was about the extent of my day. Boring, huh?

I'm about to go play the sims2 - I dont really want to, but I dont have anything else to do, so why the hell not.

springyhair made me this beeeeautiful header and showed me a site that will auto generate code! I love it so much (the header, not the site, lol) Thank you again, Michelle!

My life has been pretty boring lately. Make that really boring.

This coming weekend, we're gonna have to move everything out of my grandfather's house :( It's sold and we have 30 days to get stuff out. The only things left are some furniture that we're taking and we haven't had a way to get them to Macon from Tifton. We're probably gonna end up renting a UHaul truck to move everything.

Also this weekend is a golf tornament in my grandfather's honor. He was such a vital part of the Country Club in Tift and everyone loved him so much, that they decided to have a tornament in his name. Last year (emotionally, we couldn't handle it enough to go, so we didn't) they raised enough money to give two college scholarships to some of the young guys who work at the Country Club. They had some money left over, so they're hoping that with this year's profit and last years, they can give 4 scholarships. It's a wonderful thing because my grandfather was really big on education. His goal was to see all of his grandkids graduate from college. He didn't quite make it, but he knew that my sister and our cousin my sister's age were definitely gonna graduate. How many people can say that they had 8 grandchildren and all of them have graduated from college (or will graduate)? He was so proud of us.

So, it's going to be a VERY emotional weekend. I'm not looking forward to it very much because this is probably the last time I'll ever be in his house again. It's so sad and will be a very very hard thing to do. If you don't mind, keep me in your thoughts and prayers this weekend, please. We're gonna need the support.

Moving on to something different and happier.. here are some more things I've done in PSP. They're not nearly as good as other people's, but I think I'm improving :)

So last week I emailed one of my professors from last semester to see if he thought the education program would have a chance at being reinstated. This was his reply:


I can't imagine why Valdosta did not jump all over you?!?? Sorry.

I do not see any change in the near future. Counterproposals are being
offered, but they seem to be directed at restarting the program AFTER it has
been shut down. That process takes years.

MH and Rehab counseling are being considered separately from school
counseling, and while I am not optimistic about the long-term viability of
those programs, they will have some (not clear about time) time to make a
case for continuing.

There we are. It's not pretty but it is reality, as I understand it.


So that rules out going back to school to get my Masters in School Counseling. So what to do now? Sit on my ass without a job? Not good.
