The themed post for this month is sleep. Funny things that's happened while you were sleep, pranks you've played on folks that were sleep, you get the drift. My blog buddy Freaky Deaky sent me a message threatening me with bricks if I didn't put up a real post soon or at the very least give out the theme for the month...so there it is! LOL!
I've been 28 for almost 3 weeks now and I never said what I did. For my birthday I took a physics test, went to work, saw the X-files movie, and went to a local restaurant I've been wanting to go to forever. I had ostrich for an appetiser. It was okay, a tad too soft of a meat for my tastes.
Between then and now Snookums and I went to a Sara Barailes (sp), Counting Crows, Maroon 5 concert. It was ight. I only know one Sara Barailes song and she sung that while I was standing in line to get in the Pavilion. I've never ever had to stand in line to get into the Pavilion, that was NUTS! By time we got in and found a place to sit on the lawn she was pretty much singing her last song. Oh well. As we were waiting for the Counting Crow folks to set the stage up a couple with lawn chairs came up and was like...hey we are going to sit and if we are in your way let us know. Very nice and unexpected. They sat and we could still see so it was all good. CC do their thing and this white girl with a short sleeved yellow shirt and jeans and her friend come and stand right in front of us. For a good while all I could see was a small, flat, white girl ass! *eyeroll* rude I tell you! I guess she found who she was looking for and her and her friend started making their way through the crowd on the lawn. Maroon 5 was great. The lead singer sounds like radio! COOL! The outfits some of the chicks were wearing where great too, just out of place. I mean, if you know you have lawn seats to a concert, why would you wear a dress that's stops half an inch below your butt? Why would you wear heels? Like I said, the outfits I saw were cute and I know most of them were with their man so looking cute may have been high on the priority list, but COME ON! Fortunately most of us females on the lawn had on shorts or jeans like me. We could actually lay down on our blankets comfortably without showing the world our goodies :-)
2 weeks ago I started aquatic training a subject with cerebral palsy. It's apart of a research study I am involved in. So far, so wonderful! My subject is a sweetheart and funny as I don't know what. Being in the physical therapy pool is a great experience. There isn't too much I can say about it, but I am having a good time and getting paid to do so, can't complain about that. And no Freaky, no thongs involved :-)
I took my Physics final yesterday. I studied and still walked out that room feeling like a failure. When you study hard the test isn't supposed to look like a foreign language! :-( If the numbers add up right, I won't be getting a grade I can live with and may have to take Physics 2 over if I want to get into Duke's PT school. Snookums said not to get down on myself until the grades come in, that I could be surprised. So I am not going to spend too much energy predicting my future on a grade that hasn't been published yet. My professor has until tomorrow at 4pm to turn his grades in. What I get in this class will kinda determine how things may go for me in the future.
I interviewed for a job on the 29th. I think it went well but I haven't heard anything yet. The 12th will make 2 weeks so I'll email for a status then. No need to check for a status anymore, I didn't get the job :-( In the mean time, I have applied to 2 other places that are hiring. One I didn't find out about until 4:15 yesterday and they stopped taking apps at 5 that day!!! So I rushed and completed the app and faxed it to the place barely b4 5. I am supposed to have a position "interning" before the 18th when the fall semester begins but I don't know if that's going to happen. I have to talk to my advisor Dr. P about what's may happen. Again, situations up in the air.
I've called the supervisor at what was my plan B to see if I could start volunteering again. The only reason I stopped was because of Physics and on my last day she said to let her know when I was ready to come back. I called her on Tuesday, she hasn't got back to me yet. She's a popular therapist so I won't freak out that she hasn't called me back just yet.
On the 23rd Pooka is having her first real birthday party at this place that's like a Chuck E Cheese for teenagers. They have go karts, bumper boats, a ride where they take you in the air and drop you, laser tag, and stuff like that. I don't know who's more excited, me or her! LOL!
The weekend before that I am going to B-more for a family reunion. It's going to be a reallllll quick trip. Drive up early Saturday and drive back Sunday so I can be on campus Monday for the first day of class. The grade I get in Physics will determine what I may take in the fall, if anything, in addition to the internship. So far I've already dropped American Sign Language. I still want to learn but I can take a course at a community college or somewhere where the grade I get won't affect my GPA.
I try to plan and put myself in good positions of advancement early so things won't be so unpredictable, and I haven't done a good job thus far. I don't have a game plan outside of the water therapy research I am apart of. I don't like not knowing what I am going to be doing. I am accustomed to knowing and figuring out ways to get it done successfully. *sigh* Right now I am supposed to be working at the hospital's rehab clinic and super excited about the B I got in Physics. Not this!
