Whee. But that was based on an evaluation they sent my supervisor. Which I apparently got a 92/100 on. My knee-jerk response was "what the fuck, if there's room for improvement, why haven't you told me?!"

Remain calm, I've worked for people who were like "You were great, I really have no complaint, but I can't give you 100, I don't give out 100's, here take a 95". :mad-new: Which is stupid, but really in the end doesn't matter. Maybe these are more of those people. Just keep knowing that you are awesome, grade or no grade. :) fleaball = AWESOME

Ugggggh apparently the issue is that even though I had the order from someone at the SHC for this specific location, I still need a referral to go with it. Jesus H Christ.

I haven't gone back through old threads, but I get the feeling you've been dealing with health issues over the last couple of years which - unfortunately - teaches you how to deal with insurance companies.

 

I have a close friend with EDS (ehlers danlos syndrome) which cascades into a metric TON of other issues.  She's had more surgeries than any person should have to endure - AND worked in medical Insurance claim reviews before she had to leave the workforce - and still has to deal with the insurance BS.  It's a bit easier since she knows it in & out.  Still BS in my book and added stress she shouldn't have to deal with - but that's where we are in this country.

Anyway - I hope you get that all worked out soon.  And again - CONGRATS on finishing all of the work for you degree!

Haha yeah. One mystery illness that was a bitch, and then just a bunch of obnoxious things happening in quick succession. And anxiety making everything worse. 

 

Ugh, boo. It sucks that she has to fight with insurance in top of all that. 

 

Thanks!! :)

Yeah, totally true. Let's just blame being in student mode for being mad about losing points. ;)

Okay, asking the audience here: last night my research advisor emailed the 8 people who came to the presentation (because she collected their email addresses and kept the paper) and thanked them for coming, etc. 

 

I should reply all and say I want to echo her thanks and I appreciate their insights etc etc right? I don't want to send a useless email but I also don't want to let it go unnoticed. I'm overthinking it for sure.

I am not a fan of duplicate e-mails. But in this case, I do agree that you should send a follow up.

I'm exhausted and grumpy and the weather is gross out. This would be a perfect day to be on the couch watching Sense8. Instead I'm at work boring myself to death lookin at job listings. Ugh.

Happy Sense8 day!!! I have to wait, because L's not finished with the first season yet and I promised we'd watch it together. That's devotion right there. But hopefully they'll be caught up this weekend and we can dive into it. So if you're going to talk about the plot pleeease use spoiler tags or warn me to stay away.

@Countess D'If You are such a law student, haha. I miss people making nerdy law references. Also opera is awesome. It's trashy drama with a high brow sheen, and people who can make your skeleton vibrate with their lungs. I love it.

I got back to work and the two people here on my team are like "why are you here?! Didn't you have a root canal?!"

 

This is exactly what I was thinking when catching up on your thread. You're hardcore. Even if I was technically mostly fine after having a root canal there is no way you would catch me at work unless it was truly essential. And this coming from someone who continued doing farm labour while injured.

 

On 5/2/2017 at 6:15 PM, fleaball said:

Cheers, y'all! It went fine. I could have tightened it up a little more and the prof mentioned we both could have used a practice run with her to be sure we covered the important parts/left out what they already knew, but that it wasn't a detriment to us. A few people, including the one who was more or less my go-to there, said my stuff was helpful. So yay. 

 

Better: half-assed lit review was more than acceptable per my advisor, so I basically just have to fix some typos and tighten a few sentences and I'm good to go. Have to wait to turn it in because she invited the people there to email us suggestions ( :rolleyes: ) but basically I have nothing to do unless I hear from them. (They were impressed that I had business cards. Yeahhhh.) So fix typos while bored at work this week, submit paper Tuesday (because advisor is traveling tomorrow til Tuesday anyway and won't read it), rejoice. And binge Sense8. 

 

Fuck yeah.

Brb raging at my insurance company. They've denied an expensive claim for not having a referral from Student Health, except for the fact that the order was definitely signed by someone there. Also they're not processing my PT claims all of a sudden because I had PT elsewhere on the same shoulder last fall for a different reason, even though the current office called twice to confirm my benefits and was aware of this and the insurance company said that was fine, I still had 12 visits. 

 

I know all insurance companies are bullshit but I can't wait to get a job with decent insurance instead of these people. 

 

Fuck health insurance. I hope this gets sorted (I have faith in your ability to navigate their bullshit system) and that your next company is slightly less evil.

Waiting on sense8 for L is totally devotion. No spoilers I promise. Don't forget about the Christmas special too! I may not even get to it this weekend. Def not all of it I'm sure. Too much graduation-related stuff to get done. Sad face. 

 

will get back to the rest of your post later. And the one in my battle log. My brain is mush from staring and job and volunteer postings for 3.5 hours. 

 

eta: didn't even quote the post I was replying to. I should just give up on today.

I don't know if I said anything about this, but I was hired as an ADA note taker for jurisprudence this semester. As a result, I tried to take verbatium notes as much as possible - TOO MANY NOTES. So, I'm reading through my notes and I'm formulating my answers for this take home. 

 

Y'all - he lectured us the answers. I have everything I need. It's all in my notes! I'm so happy I could cry!

Whyyyy does google maps always fuck me over when I Uber to work? It starts out saying the selected route is the fastest, then inevitably there's traffic for over a mile and come on, it's not like it just appeared there. 

 

Anxiety is being a dick. Started writing a post last night about having trouble relaxing, gave up on it because I didn't want to deal with it at the time. Went to bed much later than I should have, and then spent another hour and a half with my brain helpfully telling me I'm a total fraud and suck at everything and all kinds of other helpful stuff. So I definitely got like 4 hours of sleep and am a grumpy motherfucker this morning. 

 

I have so much to do and adequate time to do it in but I'm hella stressed about it. I need to get my hair dyed but that requires finding a place since everywhere I've been so far has sucked. I need to attempt dress shopping again. I need to apply for jobs and make various appointments and clean my house and start packing to go home next week. I'm also vaguely terrified  my parents won't make it to graduation. 

 

I still don't have a grade for a final paper I submitted two weeks ago. 

 

Uggggh I could go on about what a terrible person I am and how I suck at everything but instead I'm gonna go edit that paper that's due tomorrow and try to do something constructive instead. Plus this way I can avoid making myself cry at work again.

Wheeeee!

You are not! You are awesome and you can totally get it done. If it makes you feel better, the only reason I have a paper to edit is that the required draft was due 10 days ago. And she sent it back with all my typos and grammar mistakes highlighted. So it's less editing for content and more "this woman is being super pedantic about commas so let me fix that since she'll probably be obnoxious about taking off points for it."

Hello Countess,

I am a tiny grasshopper on top of a small mountain looking up at a much bigger one...sigh... At least you are almost Done Ms. Fleaball...
