I had my first test tonight for my sociology class. The test was based on articles that the teacher gave us in class, which were a total of 10. Being the biggest procrastinator that I am, I waited ‘til today to read all the articles. I started @ around 1pm & stopped @ 6pm because I had to start getting ready for class. I hadn’t even finished the last article I was reading - I only read about half of it. I wasn’t all that nervous about the test, anyway. So, we got to class & took the test, which wasn’t too hard but it wasn’t extremely easy either. When I finished, I kept my scantron & finished reading the remainder of the article just in case I wanted to change something (I had guess on almost all the questions regarding that particular article). When I was done w/everything, I turned in my test & waited for my grade. I got 88%, which is bitter sweet because if I had gotten one more answer correct, I would have gotten an A-. On the other hand, a B+ is nothing short of honorable - considering the fact I did 5 hrs of reading the day of the test. So, I’m pretty happy about it in the end. Also, I got my grade for the rough draft of my socialization paper on drugs & alcohol. I got a ++ which is the equivalent of an A+. He said, “You pretty much hit it out of the park on this one.”
It’s good to know I still have procrastinating & bullshitting skills on deck :)
i’m still awake but i really should be sleeping…
i have a big test today & i haven’t even read any of the articles i’m gonna be tested on.
i hope i have enough time to read everything before 6:45pm.
k well i’m shutting this down.
I went to Target today, like around 4ish, to buy Chiquita’s costume. I found it & was pleased to see that it was on sale :) I also bought myself a thin black belt because I desperately needed one. I coudn’t find a nice brown one, but I can always go back. I had to pee really bad so I didn’t really try hard enough to look for one haha. The belt was on clearance, too, so that’s why I got it.
We (my mom & I) left the store & then went to Chipotle because I had been craving it for a while. We had gone to the Target on Sepulveda by Costco, so we were already in that area to get some Chipotle.
From there, my mom brought me to school. I laughed & told her I had an hour until class started & she said, “No pues ahorra te friegas.” LOL jerk. So right now I’m just in the library using a computer. This brings back memories of when I would go to the Annex @ FIDM on my spare time :T
Well, first & foremost, I’m VERY happy to say that I finally got all my financial aid crap done. I had my appt. with the counselor today & we figured out which classes I would take for next semester — astronomy & english — which seem alright with me. Once I was done with that, I went to the financial aid office to turn everything in. The guy that helped me reviewed my petition & said everything was in order; he said he didn’t see any reason why I wouldn’t get financial aid. I asked how long the whole process takes & how long I would have to wait to get a response, & he said the committee takes about 30 days to review & approve/deny the petition & then about a week to receive the financial aid. So, I’m thinking maybe in late October/early November I’ll be seeing that money (assuming I get approved). I’m just relieved I finally got that done! You have no idea how frustrated/stressed I was with that shit.
Work was fine, as usual. I found out some pretty interesting news, though. It seems that Joanne has yet again created some problems involving both stores (#14, which is the one I work at; & #12, which is the one she works at). From my understanding, this is what happened: It all starts out with a sales associate asking Joanne if she had had problems with any of the #14 girls. Idk what Joanne’s response to the girl was, but I know she went & told Judy about what the girl asked. Judy then calls Michelle & asks if there was someone from #14 who was telling the #12 girls stuff about Joanne/the drama we had. We (#14 girls) don’t know any of the #12 girls, so obviously we weren’t gossiping with them about her. Joanne’s just trying to start some shit between both stores because she’s a low life & has nothing better to do with herself. You know what I think? I think she’s jealous of the fact that she wants to come back to our store, but can’t, & she saw that Analie & Karla came back (they’re the girls she had drama with). I think Joanne’s telling Judy that Analie & Karla are the problem & that they cause drama for the managers/asst. managers, WHICH ISN’T TRUE. The problem was, & still is, Joanne. I think that the girl who asked Joanne that question was either: a). curious as to why Joanne was transferred to that store or b). already starting to have some type of dislike towards Joanne so she wanted to know if a similar situation happened at our store. I mean, I know for a fact Joanne’s going to have some type of problem with those girls because of the way they all are; it’s only a matter of time. The thing that’s really annoying is that Joanne & Judy are making a big deal out of nothing. So what if Analie & Karla came back? It’s not like they’re working in the same store as Joanne. Everyone @ #14 gets along very well, & it’s not our fault that all the bitches are @ #12 lol.
I pretty much try to do as many errands as I can on my days off because I really don’t have much time to do stuff on my work days. I mean, I can… but not really.
Anyway, today consisted of:
Well, I have to call Joe now because he’s probably home already. I’m gonna try to fall asleep, too, because I have to open @ work today. Toodles bitches<3
I got up early, got ready, & left with Jenny.
Got to my appt about 30 min. early, so I was just chilling in the waiting area. I met with the counselor & was glad I was finally getting my shit done. But then…
When she told me my transcripts from FIDM weren’t in the system:
Like, really? Are you fucking kidding me, bitch? Ugh. So I had to go to the Admissions office & confirm that the school really didn’t have them.
Having to wait in this stupid long ass line only to be told that my transcripts were in fact not in the system:
UGHHHH. This meant I couldn’t do anything about my financial aid. I have to call FIDM & see if they were sent out or wtf happened.
So then, Jenny & I got some food @ Sharky’s:
& then we went to the post office because she wanted to send Jason a package. We were back in Panorama City, so I figured I’d go home & get the unofficial transcripts that I’ve had… because the counselor had told me that she could have helped me even w/unofficial ones @ this point.
I was like, fuck yeah! I’m gonna get this shit straightened out!:
Jenny dropped me off @ home & she went & did her errands. Olga picked me up some time later & then we went to In N Out to get some food for her. We went back to Valley & I waited for the counselor to help me out again. I told her I was back w/a copy of my transcripts, but she said she couldn’t help me anymore because the drop-in meetings are only 10 min.; I needed to make an hr long appt to handle this shit.
I went to the appt lady & she said they’re all booked until the 10th & they don’t have the schedule for the following week to make more appts. This means I have to go back next week to make one on the week of the 11th-17th.
Having to wait until next week to make an appt that will be 2 weeks away:
@ this point, I’m beyond annoyed & I’ve had enough of this bullshit fuckery! I was like, FUCK LAVC & THEIR WHACK ASS SYSTEM!!!:
After we left, we didn’t have much to do because there was nothing else I COULD do & the class we wanted to crash didn’t start for another 3ish hrs. I was talking to Erika on the phone & she decided she’d go & hang out w/us. We hung out for a while until Erika had to leave again.
Olga & I crashed the sociology class… & got in :D 16 people wanted to add & it just so happened that 16 people who were registered in the class didn’t show up. Haha.
Olga & I were so happy:
I was especially happy because it’s the only class I wanted to get; so it was pretty much all or nothing for me.
My day started out shitty, but I’m glad it ended well.
I’m sending all my shit to Gazelle - you know, all these damn phones that I have lying around. I’m also sending an old iPod Nano & my very first digital camera that I got when I was in 8th grade lol! I’m sending 7 items: 4 are priced & 3 are recycle for a total of $96. It’s not a lot, but fuck it - it’s SOMETHING.
Next is selling my FIDM textbooks… :T
I’m still awake because I’m watching Love Games.
Anywho, I’m thinking about my final grades for my classes & I really hope I get A’s. It would suck if I got B’s :T I mean, it’s whatever because I’m obviously getting my degree regardless of my grades, but I’d just really like some A’s to bring up my GPA. Again, it doesn’t really matter… but still >.>
I did the calculations for both classes & they came out to A’s, but I just estimated the points. I never got any graded work back except for my finals, so it’s all a guesstimation.
I guess I just really want my degree to say Cum Laude :)
Finally done. DONE WITH EVERYTHING.
I finished our powerpoint presentation & saved it on a CD for tomorrow. I made sure to back it up, too. I’m not taking any chances anymore >.>
I’m pretty tired now, so I’m gonna go to sleep. Plus I have to leave extra, extra early tomorrow ‘cause I got some things to take care of.
Work was so boring! It was slow, for the most part, so I was really bored. When I get bored, I get tired, & then I don’t feel like doing anything… which then annoys me. So I was bored, tired, and annoyed - not a very good combo, especially when working retail. I’m so glad I don’t have to work tomorrow. I think I’m getting tired of Zizibeh because I’ve been working a lot of consecutive days with a lot of hours. I mean, it’s not like I’m going to quit any time soon, but ugh… that company just sucks so much.
Anyway, I’m supposed to be working on the powerpoint presentation for tomorrow’s class, but I’m just so lazy right now!
In other news, I’m waiting on these surveys to come through so I can request my payments already! I’m just a couple of bucks away from reaching my goal of $50 on each website but it’s so frustrating when I don’t qualify for a survey.
I think that’s about it. Mmkay bye.
