so since i wrote last a lot has happened. here goes..........
I interviewed for the job at Hackley, and the woman I interviewed with of course asked me the normal questions and played nice and acted like she knew who I was when she really had no clue. That day she offered me a job and had me meet with my boss and get a drug test and then the next day she called and offered me the job. So I now have employment lined up for me when I get out of school. I start August 16. So in between finishing school and starting work I have a week and a half. WOOHOO. I'm gonna go somewhere........I don't know where, but somewhere.
I had to get my physical for work of course. And I must say that the clinic I had to go to was the most disorganized place I'd ever been to. I had to go there like 4 times in a week and they made me wait at least an hour each time and didn't know I was coming when I had appointments set up. VERY DISORGANIZED! And I must also say that I have memorized the discovery health channel that they play that repeats every hour. Well anyway I had to do the routine physical and whatnot and get a TB test. Well the first night after they gave me the shot my arm looked like I had hives, well hive, but still it looked bad. It got better, but still looked not right when I went in on thursday to get it read. And of course, they told me that they thought it was a positive test. Which meant I had to get a chest x-ray, they thought I had been exposed to TB, and that I would have to go on the medication for 9 months for prophylaxis. I was not a happy camper. All of this happened right before my final two exams in psych. It's a good thing that I liked the class b/c I really couldn't concentrate on studying. For starters the medication I was going to be on could give me hepatitis. Sure, no problem sacrifice my liver for the .03% chance that I actually will ever get sick. Go for it. And then to top that off, I had to abide by this crazy diet where I couldn't have alcohol, caffine, soda, chocolate, cheese, processed meats........the list goes on. Basically for 9 months I would have been a rabbit living on water and lettuce. Which didn't sound at all appealing to me. And, if by any chance I ate something that I shouldn't, I could go into a hypertensive crisis. Woohoo, bring it on right? WRONG. Heatha was freaking out for like 5 days. So I go back and talk to the dr. the next week, and of course I had to wait a year b/c they didn't know I was coming, whatever. Anyway nice dr. said that I was probably just allergic to the shot and it was very unlikely that I would ever develop symptoms and that it was too risky to bother with. THANK YOU LORD! So that definately made me like the happiest girl in the world. But he did tell me that my hepatitis shot that I got didn't work and that I might be in the 5% of americans that cannot become immune to it. Which just figures right? So it's a good thing I didn't go on that med b/c my poor liver would be hating me that's for sure. It probably already does. hehehe
So that was one catasrophe averted.
Then I had exams in the middle of all of this. Which of course I tried to concentrate on, and I actually did pretty well, but it just was too much to deal with all at once for me. And then one of my best friends almost didn't pass psych, she was right on the borderline and they squeaked her by. So for like a day we were all on pins and needles waiting to find out what would happen to her. So after finals, and my TB crisis were over I crashed for like 3 days. Actually, I've been doing that a lot. I'm always tired, I have no energy and no matter how much I sleep, it never seems to be enough.
So this past weekend I find out that my great aunt died and I had her funeral to go to. And a whole bunch of family was in from out of town and so friday I call up work to ask them if I can come in an hour late on Sunday so I can go to the visitation. And they don't call me back and let me know until Saturday when I went into work. They were like, ''well you have to come in early for me a day next week so I don't go into overtime and this is just really inconvienient for me." Well I'm sorry I could ask for the entire weekend off.......and next time I'll ask my relatives to just hold on until after my last day of work b/c god knows how important your life is to me that I don't want to screw it up.
I'm so glad that I only have 4 days left. And nobody is acting like they care. Which kind of pisses me off. I've given Oak Crest a lot of myself for two years and they can't even act like they care that I'm leaving? It makes me mad. And my staff doesn't care either. They come to me with problems that they want me to deal with before I go b/c if I don't, nobody will. Because they are a lazy bunch of bitches that like to gossip and that's it.
On a happier note, 4 DAYS LEFT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AND I get to see my girls tomorrow! YAY.
I have an exam on monday already. I've had 3 days of class and already an exam. Scary. So this weekend will be spent dog-sitting (maybe) and studying (again maybe ;)
Mom and dad are supposed to go away for the weekend.....which means that I get the big horse at my apartment. And considering I spent an hour with him tonight and my airway was constricted for like 2 hours after and I now have a sore throat, I'm thinking maybe it's not such a good idea. And also, maybe I shouldn't get a dog. But on the other hand if I get one that's smaller than Mac, which doesn't take much considering he weighs like 100#, I will be ok.
I hope so...........I really want a dog.
