Back to SCHOOL

First day of school! I'm pretty excited, but I'm sure in two weeks that will have worn off.
Three of my classes are at your own pace.. so I'm sure I'll get behind quickly! :)

English - Writing
American Government
Fitness for life

2 Really easy classes... and 3 hard ones. I think I can do this!

Tuition went up. $1,854 or something stupid. Financial aid said I would only be getting 3500 for the year... so might have to come up with some more.. Joy. Awesome since I can barely afford books.

I got a day off next week to go to Moab with Dad and his cousin Miriam. I'm excited. That stuff is neat!

Da Bears

Breanne is in trouble for having me read this. I've put it off this long. Just wasn't interested, but I started reading last night, and all of a sudden it was 3 in the morning. Yeah, so far I have a crush on Edward. I like these skinny pale guys.
This made me laugh. I love it :)

Another dilemma. I found a position online that my boss put open. I found it because people are calling about it the past few days. The base pay is 27k-36k for a year experience. Um... I have 4. Making 27k, and it was hard to get that out of him. I'm ticked. Showed my friend I work with, and was telling her I was thinking about printing it off to show him.... Well. She already printed it off by then. So now he'll know that we were talking about it, if we both approach him, and I don't think that will go over well. I hate getting stuck on the back burner. I wrote him an email asking him if he would consider me for the position, but really I like helping out the bonds and commercial lady. Just been so hard to train on it answering the phones all day.

I woke up yesterday with a migraine. Thought I could go to work, but ended up throwing up in the shower... so that failed. I Spent the day sleeping and watching X-Men 2, Invader Zim, and Mean Girls. I need to win the lottery just so I can do that every day.

CAR UPDATE: The tow bill ended up being $400, but that's their own fault. They resubmitted the estimate to the insurance co, $4280. which is now a little over 80% of what they say it's worth. So the guy at the shop said they'll probably lean towards totaling it out. Which would be nice. $5330. Pay off the car $3300. Then put 1000ish down on a new car. Convince mom and dad, or Ty to cosign. Preferably mom and dad again. We'll see.

WORK DRAMA: Bond lady was gone last Friday. Wednesday (before the holiday) she told me that she needed me to do a bond for her on Friday. I went up to her desk not there. So I asked my boss if he had them. "still working on it". So i told him I had an appointment at 3:30 and he needed to get it to me before that. He failed to do so. Since I was gone yesterday, I called to see if he put it on my desk. He had.... brilliant move. So I'm working on it now. He drives me nuts. The company we're doing it for called and complained yesterday, and I'll get blamed I'm sure.

The beginning of the end

The dumb adjuster called and told me that they're going to accept 100% liability. No kidding.... They towed my car to the shop, and I haven't heard anything since. The Appraiser told me he thinks the damage is estimated as $3,780. They say my car is worth $5,330, with the newer engine (27k miles). Since it's 71% damage of what the car is worth, I'm going to fight for diminished value since I'll never be able to sell the car with a salvaged title.


Tomorrow is Pioneer Day. Yay for fake holidays that I get off!!!!!! Working 5 days a week is lame. I need to become a teacher so I can get summers off. Or so I can work in museums do something awesome during the summer.

I haven't decided if I want to go into history or anthropology. They go hand in hand, so I'm considering getting a teaching degree in history, and minoring, or double majoring in anthropology.


I should be done pretending to work, and actually do it.

I hate cops

FINALLY the report is in. I paid the $6 fee, and received a fax telling me that they're sending the report back to the officer for more information. What did they do? Send the newest cop to the accident? 8 days now without it, and I'm NOT happy about it.
