maybe day 1 is done by now?
hope you knocked it out, harbs!

te,he (tehresa), Tuesday, 28 July 2009 21:14 (nine years ago) Permalink

hi
it was ok. i know i botched a couple things and forgot some stuff in my haste but everyone did. i wrote something for every question. the only big failures were a contracts question i got frazzled on and answered in a really bizarre order and part of an evidence question that had a rule i could never understand (but it had 6 parts that i answered most of). secured transactions question was identical to one i did in practice. no con law questions. ok not gonna think about it anymore!

spite n ease (harbl), Tuesday, 28 July 2009 22:02 (nine years ago) Permalink

anyway i think i'm gonna pass. multiple choice all day tomorrow, which is hard, but more studying won't help. i don't know what to do with myself!

spite n ease (harbl), Tuesday, 28 July 2009 22:02 (nine years ago) Permalink

i keep thinking of what other stuff i did wrong. it's so hard not to ugh

spite n ease (harbl), Tuesday, 28 July 2009 22:04 (nine years ago) Permalink

i think you should go out to a movie. good distraction.
way to go!!

te,he (tehresa), Tuesday, 28 July 2009 22:10 (nine years ago) Permalink

there doesn't seem to be anything i want to see. maybe i'll start a new book. had to bring both of my books back before they were done :(

spite n ease (harbl), Tuesday, 28 July 2009 22:23 (nine years ago) Permalink

i will probably just sit here and waste time on the internet

spite n ease (harbl), Tuesday, 28 July 2009 22:34 (nine years ago) Permalink

harbl! i'm glad you got through day 1.

estela, Tuesday, 28 July 2009 22:39 (nine years ago) Permalink

yes! thank you estrella.

spite n ease (harbl), Tuesday, 28 July 2009 22:41 (nine years ago) Permalink

GOOD JOB!!!! You made through the first ever day of this special kind of hell. (xpost)

Is there a small animal nearby you can play with? Rolling around on the floor playing with one can be excellent.

jaq, Tuesday, 28 July 2009 22:42 (nine years ago) Permalink

yeah i can play with the cat but she sleeps from 8 am to 9 pm mostly. now i am watching her sleep half on her back with her legs spread open and in the air. yesterday when i was laying on my back reading flashcards out loud she would jump up on the bed with a chirp and lay down on my stomach. lol cats.

spite n ease (harbl), Tuesday, 28 July 2009 22:47 (nine years ago) Permalink

one thing i was amazed at was the number of people who didn't come back for the afternoon session! there were a number of empty seats. that must feel bad.

spite n ease (harbl), Tuesday, 28 July 2009 22:48 (nine years ago) Permalink

maybe your fruit flies will be up for a game.

estela, Tuesday, 28 July 2009 22:50 (nine years ago) Permalink

ha that reminds me it's garbage day thanks

spite n ease (harbl), Tuesday, 28 July 2009 22:53 (nine years ago) Permalink

a good thing to consider about all those empty seats this afternoon is that those who complete the exam must have a much higher pass rate than the statistics indicate.

estela, Tuesday, 28 July 2009 22:56 (nine years ago) Permalink

yeah, the scores are also adjusted so anyone that shows up and gets only a few points is bringing down the mean score, which is good (for me)

spite n ease (harbl), Tuesday, 28 July 2009 22:59 (nine years ago) Permalink

you are the only person in that exam room we care about.

estela, Tuesday, 28 July 2009 23:33 (nine years ago) Permalink

you guys shoulda seen how many people in the room though! it's in a convention center "expo hall" so if you imagine an "expo" of your choice, it's the room without the boat 'n' rv show exhibits and just rows and rows of tables w/ 2 people at each. about 2/3 of the room is for laptop people, the rest for handwriters. it must have looked so strange to a normal person, or maybe if an alien came and this is the first thing it saw.

spite n ease (harbl), Tuesday, 28 July 2009 23:44 (nine years ago) Permalink

they have those downstairs below my work and it's always CPA tests. one time there were a bunch of girls out front waiting for the test to get over, holding signs to congratulate their boyfriends. my favorite sign said THE SUMMER OF OUR LIVES STARTS NOW

jergins, Tuesday, 28 July 2009 23:46 (nine years ago) Permalink

yes, i didn't want to but you can't really not do that. it was ok. i'm going to the office today to clean up and move things out. it is mostly done already.

two weeks pass...

harbly, i hope you like your new job.

i feel like i can never leave my job because i've worked here for so long they'd never let me get away without some big do and it seems utterly excruciating. but on the other hand refusing a do would be scandalous? i don't know, this is the type of nonsense that worries me on a regular basis. "fortunately," i have a good number of years left to decide which approach i'll take.

lxy, Tuesday, 2 April 2019 15:19 (two months ago) Permalink

you can totally refuse a do imo!

not going. already re-budgeted my saved $273.

oh, l&j! the sweater i was starting at your house...i'm still cranking away at it but it's almost done! i may run out of yarn. by like 100 ft. oops!

spite n ease (harbl), Sunday, 28 April 2019 23:55 (one month ago) Permalink

two great pieces of news!

will you finish with a different yarn? an ongoing reminder of measure twice cut once?

lxy, Monday, 29 April 2019 15:16 (one month ago) Permalink

well it turns out i may have exactly the right amount. or i will be like 1 ft short and will use my swatch. this is a mass produced kind so i could get more but they come in giant skeins that cost like $20. so i'd have to find a partial one on the internet.

spite n ease (harbl), Monday, 29 April 2019 22:04 (one month ago) Permalink

please post pix. or come back wearing it.

lxy, Tuesday, 30 April 2019 15:19 (one month ago) Permalink

i am in fact 2 ft short. working on it.

spite n ease (harbl), Wednesday, 1 May 2019 21:58 (one month ago) Permalink

so my new job is looking to add a 4th supervisor. i have been there one month. i am crazy but not unstable and i think i would be a good supervisor. but if i apply and don't get it, will there be office politics problems? weirdness? it's only open to people already working there.

spite n ease (harbl), Wednesday, 1 May 2019 22:00 (one month ago) Permalink

can you guarantee no office politics or weirdness under any circumstances

if not go for the option with more cash/holidays/lackeys imo

esperantzen (p much resigned to deems), Wednesday, 1 May 2019 22:32 (one month ago) Permalink

i spent years supervising part-time student staff, then full-time professional staff, then no staff, now part-time student staff and full-time professional staff. i am a good supervisor but i hate it and wish there had been a way for me to advance without becoming a supervisor again.

so, i am not a good person to ask.

lxy, Wednesday, 1 May 2019 22:55 (one month ago) Permalink

yes this is also true managing people is horrible

i trust this has all been helpful obv

esperantzen (p much resigned to deems), Thursday, 2 May 2019 08:29 (one month ago) Permalink

well

lol

i figured out that they demoted one of the 3 supervisors who it only took me a few weeks to determine i did not like. her last action was a scoldy email to everyone about different rules that were being broken. we had a big meeting on friday about some things that were going on before i got there. i think after that meeting she was demoted by the other bosses who had the meeting. i am still on some of the wrong email groups and missing half the emails. i was wondering why she has sort of disappeared.

i am thinking i will apply but i still have a couple weeks to decide. i may have a quality that is needed. because i come from a well-run district everyone likes and this is a messy one with retention problems (i knew this coming in--i am here for the good commute tbh, and won't die if i only last a few years here because i was thinking about moving on in that time frame anyway).
