The bosses (all four of them) are here having meetings, fixing computers, etc. It's very annoying, because it means I need to be careful about what I have on my screen. They tend to frown on people being online. And they keep popping out the door behind me, which means I have about 0.44395834958 of a second to hit alt-tab. (Ahh, alt-tab, you are my hero.)

Very. Annoying.

Anyway. Not alot happening at the moment. Iain has taken a week off next week, so, obviously, I'm working every day. I've worked a grand total of about 10 days in the last 2 months, and they choose this week to really need me. *grumbles* Oh well, I suppose the money will be handy, considering we have to buy a second car soon, and I need a few more teacher-y clothes. Hmmm.

I start school in less than a week. Freaking. Out.

I'm at work. And bored stiff. I totally don't want to do any work at all. Tres boring.

I've done all the references for my Tutorial paper, can't work on my module for education because I need the readings, and I can't really do much else. Meh.

I'm hungry. Can't eat until the last patient leaves, and that looks like it's going to be at least another 30 minutes. Dammit.

So yes. Bored.

I'm sick again. Well, I'm getting better now. But still feel like crap. It's the usual; sinus, coughing, achy-sore muscles, swinging between shivering and sweating like crazy. Not cool. I hate it so.

No work tomorrow for me. I'm bummed because it was a long shift, and I feel bad, but I did tell them I was sick on Friday. And nobody cared. So, tough.

I must not be bitter. *sighs* I'm just feeling a bit used and abused, that's all. I'll get over it.

Essay is almost done; I'll finish it tomorrow. I did most of it yesterday, which was good - all I have to do now is finish one small section, do the intro and conclusion and references. I just don't feel up to it today.

*yawn* Time for a snooze, I think. If I can get warm enough.
mebfeath: (wickham is totally not awesome)
Am working. *sigh*

I don't want to be here. I want to be at home with my husband. *grumps*

And it's quiet. So the last 2 hours have passed So. Slowly. Despite the mounds of work I could do.



Talk to me? Anyone?
mebfeath: (wickham is totally not awesome) here's an update.

Uni is over for the semester. YAYZ. Results out 4th July. Which is in a week. OOH. I want to know what I got for ancient history. Oh, and media studies. Considering I never got a piece of assessment back the whole semester. Awesome.

I am currently organising data input for my boss's cervical cancer prevention scheme in Vanuatu. Boring, but interesting. Don't ask me how that works. And don't ask how I managed to get roped into it, either.

Am recovering from sinus infection slowly. Feeling generally better, but sinuses are still giving me headaches, so they're obviously not.

Work is busy, as usual. No change there.

My husband is well. No change there either!

Umm...other than that, there's not a lot, really. Other than the usual catching up with family and friends. And each other. I feel like I haven't seen my husband in months. Not cool.

So yes. The end.

I feel like crap.

Yes, I am sick. Again. I have my usual sinusy-sore throat-achy thing. This time, I have a fever. How exciting! *sniffle*

I am hoping I get over this super-fast because I have an exam on Saturday and I would like to actually study before it. Unfortunately, I cannot wing this one. I simply do not know enough to pass. Tragically.

Work today has been a bit of a trial, but ok. I have anti-biotics which hopefully should work. I'm having tomorrow off, which is wonderful because I have this stupid Vanuatu stuff to get done aswell.

mebfeath: (I feel like crap on toast)
I'm doing a spreadsheet for my boss's cervical cancer program in Vanuatu, and I know you can make cells at the top or on the side of a spreadsheet stay there permanently while the others move across. I need to do this, but I don't know how.

Ok, so that sentence made no sense at all.

Basically, what I need to do is to keep the first few columns or rows (haven't decided yet) on the screen at all times, but I need to scroll down through the columns/rows after. Does that make sense?

Long week. *headdesks*

mebfeath: (Default)
I do not wish to read ANY. MORE. ancient sources. Not Tacitus, or Plutarch, or Pliny, or Suetonius.

I still have to read Tacitus, Dio, and probably some Josephus. *sighs*

I just have no motivation. None. I think it's because I'm tired. And because I've been doing this assignment since the DAWN OF TIME, DAMMIT.


Ok, so it's three weeks, but I've still got oooodles to read. And that doesn't include stuff written by people who are actually STILL ALIVE.

Heh. I'm never doing honours. You spend the whole year researching and writing ONE essay. When I say I have the attention span of a gnat unless I'm actually interested or about to fail, I mean it. Zippo.

Maybe I should start researching for media studies. That's technically due before ancient history....

Ooh yay ancient history lecture in half an hour. Excuse me while I shoot myself.

Bored. Upstairs with a specialist have to do absolutely nothing for except occasionally fax or photocopy something. Which is nice.

The aircon is making me sleepy.

It is far too hot and muggy. It's supposed to be AUTUMN. Grr.


We're having dinner tonight at homegroup because a few people are back from holidays. It's a smart move really because we'll all just want to talk anyway. Plus my homegroup cooks the *best* food eva. YUMM. No Maccas for me tonight! Whee!

I feel like doing Uni work. This is frustrating, since I'm supposed to be working. *sigh*

I hate the fact that I'm paying HECS* yet I'm not even working in the profession I'm studying for. *grumps*

* HECS is the scheme where the Government pays for you to go to Uni and you pay them back. It rocketh muchly cause it means that any Australian citizen can go to Uni essentially for free. Until they earn a certain amount of money.

oh, and...

I bought a new top. It's blue with white polka dots and has 3/4 sleeves. I love. I got in on sale at General Pants Co., so I'm stoked. And I wasn't even really looking! Yay!

I have decided I want a new job. But I don't.

Humans + change = ...stressed humans. Tragic.

Yay! Stuck at work from 9am to 5pm today! *sighs*

At least it's air-con (it's going to be 34C and 99% humidity). And I'm getting paid time and a half. And I'm getting Tuesday off in lieu.

But there is no husband. And I have do *work*. *sighs*

Entertain me?
mebfeath: (cookie on branch)



I have done all the paperwork I can do. There is only one doctor on so it's only 1 patient every 10 minutes, assuming they turn up. The phone rings occasionally, but it's usually to see if we're open tomorrow or have any appointments free, so they're quick calls (we're not and we don't). At least I'll have the banking to do when Pav finishes, but that takes all of 5 minutes if there's nothing wrong.

Someone entertain me? I'm stuck here till 5pm. It's getting to the point where I'm going to start playing Canasta at Yahoo Games...

I need to change my Christmas icons.

YAY RAIN. It just finished storming. It was so hot and muggy and ick and now it's practically *cold*. It's FANTASTIC. And it's still raining. YAY.

Iain has the day off tomorrow in lieu of working Saturday, and I'm just working in the afternoon. How exciting! i might actually see my husband for more than 5 minutes!

Anyway, bedtime.
mebfeath: (Meh - hritza)
It was 33C and disgusting yesterday, and now my computer is telling me it's about 22-23C. And it's cloudy, and everything is *yellow*. It's a bit eerie.

In other news, it's one of my colleague's last day today. In some ways I'm sad because she's really reliable and intelligent, but I'm mostly happy because she manipulates people constantly and is completely unhelpful at times. I don't mind her, but I find whenever I work with her I end up angry about something - usually because I feel really manipulated and hurt. Conflicting emotions.

It's nice to have our computer back*; if only to download the 394857934857 emails into Outlook. The more I use my mac the more I love it. It is the best eva.

Am feeling pretty much 100%, although my knees are giving me hell. I know it's my own fault; I need to go buy inserts for my shoes, but I think part of it now is coming from my lower back from that hospital bed. The pain.

Oh, and the Ashes start today! We are so going to win. It's awesome. *g* Ooh, we won the toss! Must remember that everyone else is an hour ahead of us. I have no doubt this will cause confusion considering we're the only one of 2 states who don't have daylight savings and the first test is being played here. Oh well, not our fault if the southerners want to mess with time and confuse people.

Husband is complaining overtime that he has to work and can't watch it, while I have a TV where I work *and* at home. Woe is him. Poor Husband.

Start work at 2pm, but I'm going in at around 1-ish to see one of the Doctors and chat to the girl who's job I'm partially taking over for a month. Whoo.

* - Monitor blew up. Literally. Poof.

I got 23.5/30 for my History essay. Not as well as I would have liked, but still a 6 (Distinction). Now I just have to get at least 75% for the exam, and I'll get a 6 overall. YAY. Must study hard.

I woke up this morning at 5:40am, rolled out of bed, got in the shower, and realised I start at 7:30, so I didn't need to get up until about 6:15am. *cries* And I might not get a sleep this afternoon because the brother is meeting me at Uni to look at some books, and I don't finish until 3pm anyway. And I have homegroup tonight, and a 7am (definitely!) tomorrow. And I had a 7am yesterday.

Three 5:30am starts tend to tire me out, especially when I don't get to bed on Tuesday until after 10:30pm because of homegroup, and then have to be up at 5:30am. *sighs*

The little-blinking-cursor-thing in Word is about 2mm tall, and it's seriously irritating me. And I can't find where to change it. GRRR.

I don't want to go to work at 12! I want to work on my assignment! GRR.

Methinks today, it's going to be the little things.
mebfeath: (Meh - hritza)

I have just finished formatting the proposal for the Vanuatu Cervical Cancer Prevention Scheme for my boss. All 50 pages. It's only taken me 2 hours. *sighs*

This also means I got no Uni work done. *freaks*

Bed now. Stress tomorrow.

It's not normally a problem, but dude. They've closed the entire Riverside Expressway, which basically means travelling from one side of the city to the other is a nightmare. They're redirecting all the traffic through the city, and considering the Riverside Expressway is 3-4 lanes the whole way, you can imagine the chaos. They've had to close it because while they were resurfacing part of it, they discovered that one of the on-ramps had moved. This, apparently, in the world of on-ramps, off-ramps and bridges, is a bad thing. So basically in order to stop the whole thing becoming one with the Brisbane River, they've had to close it.

CHAOS. Traffic backed up for miles. Buses running 30 minutes late. People taking 3 times as long to get home. Buses getting stuck in the city so the lines for the buses at Uni and Toowong were astronomical. And it's going to take days to figure out what's wrong with the ramp, let alone fix it!

Meh. And they've moved the City-Uni bus stop. Again.

The boss, M, has got me 'prettying-up' her Vanuatu proposal. This woman has NO IDEA about formatting. When she's finished with a page, she hits 'enter' until she gets to a new page. Which is making life VERY DIFFICULT FOR ME. And I haven't even *touched* my essays in the last few days.

I scored a 512MB USB key last night from my father in law. I was telling my mother in law how I lost my pretty formatted/referenced version of my essay, and he brought out this USB key he'd scored from Ford. He organises the company cars for the whole of Queensland through them, so they do nice things like give him stuff and taking him racing, etc. He already has about 3, so he gave me this one, just in case the other one was about to die. Husband should be happy now; he can have his USB key back. ;)

Finished work early today because one of the specialists decided not to rock up without telling us, which meant we had too many staff on. It was too late to call the new girl (who is going to be an ex-employee very soon), so I left 2 hours early. It's good because now I can finish going through my essay and print it out before the lecture. Yay.

I think I'm just going to head home after classes today instead of staying back and going straight to homegroup. I'm pretty wrecked - I've only had about 6 hours sleep two nights in a row, and I slept really badly last night. I was going to stay behind and work on my other essays, but there's really nothing here for me, except to save time by removing 40 minutes of travel time. I don't think I'm *that* desperate yet. Besides, it'll be nice to actually arrive at homegroup in a car. And not have to have Macca's for dinner.

Dammit, I still have to go to lectures. It feels like the afternoon already. Maybe I'll skip the tute...but he knows I'm here and it's a small class and I'd feel bad...

Hmmm. Should actually get some work done.
