i haven't been on lj in weeks. i think one reason is that i don't have my own laptop and it's easy to forget to post on my mom's computer. life's going. i went to vegas last week. that was fun. i ended up being sick on christmas and i'm still sick. i haven't had this much mucus come out of me in years. it's disgusting to say the least.
vegjackie, now knackered writer, i have your card i've lost your address in my sick stupor. it's a cute card. so if you read this, email me your address and it will be a new year's card.
i just realized this week that i've been out of school for a year. i thought by this time i would be in a nice job. well that didn't happen. hopefully next year i will be somewhere nice in a good job where i can work independently and don't have to deal with office drama. then i can buy a house.
Hi Terri. Module 12. What an absolute shock and surprise. You are a very competent and skilled individual. This paper is outstanding. Why or why did you not apply the same skills to the case analysis? You must not have liked them. Your review, discussion and analysis of the articles is wonderful. It is obvious that you could have applied the same skill on cases. You could have done charts, graphs, tables, evaluations, or a whole bunch of other things to show that you really can study somethings and evaluate intelligently and properly, instead of short opinions with no support. An A grade for Module 12.
Course Grade. Because of this outstanding work on Module 12 you have moved your course grade up from a C to a B-. Hereafter, put this superb mind to work on the course assignments. Prof Jewell
so to explain this: i was doing horrible in this class. the cases were horrible so i was bearly trying. i thought i was going to have to repeat the class over. i'm so happy. this is a miacle.
i can't stop looking at wedding stuff. it makes we wish i was someone's maid of honor or something so i could help plan their wedding. it's like instead of me wanting a baby, i want a wedding. i know i'm suppose to go to one of jim's friend's wedding in the fall so maybe that will keep me at bay. i know my own engagement is at least a couple of years away.
i can't remember where i put my social security card so i went to the office today. i wouldn't have noticed that i misplaced it but i need it for my orientation. the good thing is that there's a ss office down the street from me so i went this morning. first the parking lot is small so i parked down the street. i get out of my car and this guy is smoking week just brazingly out in the open. i was a half a block from him and it smelled like he was right next to me. i get in the building and start waiting for my number. oh wait there was a lady outside selling tamales at 9 in the morning. that was weird unless they were breakfast tamales. so back to inside. my seat is the very few seat were it was missing one of the arms. so whoever sat by me was going to be thisclose to me. that would have been fine except in the hour i was waiting i had a humongous woman, a cokehead or alcholic who was talking to herself about all kinds of stuff and on the phone about getting section 8 and a beer today, and a guy who smelled like a toilet. the actual getting the paperwork done to get a replacement took 2 minutes top. i really don't want to go back again but i'll probably need to go again when i get married and when i have kids. hopefully by that time, everything will be on the computer.
i don't remeber if i ever wrote about my marketing project on here or not. quick summary: i was in a group of 3 where we worked on how a japanese company should market their new product, kameda crisp, to the united states. this was for my marketing 500 class. it was a pain in the butt b/c i had to work with two guys who thought they knew what they were doing but didn't . they didn't realize i was right until the 11th hour. the project ended with a powerpoint presentaion to the kameda people and the class. the teacher is doing some kind of interview today, not informing us for who or what. she cc us on the email and attached the picture we took with the kameda usa president, kameda japan president, marketing and distribution guys. i look decent enough so i'll share it. oh the dean of the business school is in there, he and i were the only non-asians.
it was blah. my mother forgot for the 1742589 time that i don't like bbq so that sucked at first but then she baked me and my sister some chicken and got me some chips and dip. jim and i left early. people were asking why but it was crowded and i didn't want to go in the first place and nothing was happening. i turn off the alarm when i get into my house but i guess not soon enough. the alarm people called and asked for the password. i spelled it out b/c it's not a real word. stupid lady doesn't know her letters. i'm spelling it slow and she hears a g instead of t even thought i say t as in today. i spelled it about 4 times. then she asked for my name and i tell her. she hears an h. i'm getting pissed off by the whole thing b/c she said she sees the alarm was canceled but she's wasitng my time. 45 minutes later the sheriffs come to the house saying the alarm company called them. i was mad once again. they asked me was i ok and i said yes. they say 'are you sure you aren't being held hostage?' i tell them no. i guess jim looked like some one who would hold me hostage and make me watch golden girls. the cops tell me that i should call the alarm company on tuesday to straighten the password situation out. it's crazy that they usually tell you not to pick passwords that are easy to figure out yet everytime the alarm company calls, it's like they can't figure out our password. i could understand if i just said it as a word but i spelled it out from the get go. i wish they would use people who speak engilsh for jobs like this.
so the 5.0 earthquake that happen in lennox was felt in huntington beach. it was like a truck driving by then the rumble got stronger. i asked him if it was an earthquake and next thing i know jim's booking it out of the house. it shocked me b/c i wasn't sure what was happening. then i realized that his mother is still in the back. so i went back and starting calling for her. she was ok. the logic of jim running was that there is a lot of glass around and if his mother was trapped, he could save her if he was out of the house. i've realized that if there is a disaster and jim's around, not to count on him saving me. the good thing about being at jim' s house is that he's disaster prepared so i would be able to eat for quite a while.
i will be a tax revenue agent through the federal internship program(not the official name but can't think of it right now) for the irs for 2 years. i will be working in el segundo which means my mom and i can carpool to work. my prayers are finally answered. i'm so freakin, frackin happy.
it took me a while to get all of the stuff setteled but cancelling my trip to greece is worth it. i'll go next year.
i'm sick of going to school. it's not fun or interesting. we had a group paper in management and one of the ladies deleted some of my writing. i sent an email telling her why i thought it should be kept in and she wrote me back saying she wanted a reason that it should be kept in. i want to write her back and ask what part of my reason to keep that part in did you not understand? the registar put my email in wrong so i hadn't been getting whatever emails, including my grades since the beginning of the class. i'm probably making a d in the class b/c i missed the first case, got a b on the 2nd one, a c on the third and have been doing crappy on the discussions. i feel like it won't matter if i get a mba b/c all these stupid jobs just care about experience. it's like i could have taken 2 classes at a community college on bookeeping and would have a job by now. i wish i could stop school but then i won't have any health insurance. i'm tired of the crap.
i have a job interview with the irs on saturday. i hope i get it b/c there's soooo much room to grow working for them. i've heard nothing really bad about being an auditor for the business part of the irs. the interview is to be in their internship program.
it was funny when they called all they said was it's the irs. i was wondering why is the irs calling me on tax day but when they said who was calling from the irs i realized that it was the interview people.
yesterday i got an e-mail form us customs and border protection that said that they are going to reconsider me for a postion in international trade. they didn't even send me a rejection letter the first time but i'm all for another chance.
so cross your fingers and keep hope alive that i get one of these jobs
so i've just discovered that i sent in my registration for next semester backwards. my mom was being a jive turkey and had me send it end on the last day before late fees. the good thing is that the fee is only $25 if they make me pay it. i'm going to show them the reciept for the fax and maybe they'll let it pass.
i'm also registering to be a cia, a certified internal auditor. this will hopefully get me a job.
i started ballroom dancing lessons with jim. it was my idea b/c i've always wanted to waltz and know i have a partner. there were a lot of couples but you could still dance with enough room around you and the next group. it was hard for me b/c i like to be in control and i have to follow. after i just relaxed and let go, it went smoothly. after dancing we went to bj's and had a really bad waitress. she was very slow and hardly came to our table. i could have understood if the place was crowded but it wasn't. jim still gave her 20%. i should had paid, i would had given her maybe 10%.
tonight we are going to see the fast and the furious. this should be interesting.
hey everyone (which would be maybe the 2.5 of you that read this)!
i have a quick story to write. so yesterday jim went to kiss me and we somehow knocked teeth. it hurt for about a minute for me. it hurt him even more b/c he had just gotten a crown and a filling the other day. even though we were in pain, we couldn't stop laughing.
the search for a job is blah. i had an interview with u.s. customs and border protection to be an auditor. it seems like a cool job. they deal with any business that does international business, big or small. i hope i get it. i spent a lot of time (around 3 hours total) filling out this application that they didn't even collect. i did get some swag so i guess it makes up for the time i spent on the application by a bit.
i bought a puzzle around the beginning of this month that i thought was missing pieces. i sent a letter and i got a reply from them today. i had put some pieces in the wrong place. i'm glad i included pictures. so now i don't have to send my puzzle to them. i think jim is going to get a kick out of that b/c we did the puzzle together and didnt' realize pieces were in the wrong place.
i need a new boyfriend. so if anyone knows a guy around my age with green eyes and brown curly hair who likes comedy, sci fi, emo or indie music, and baked goods send him my way. oh and he has to pay attention when i talk to him and not discount my opinions and things i know as facts.
