If I haven't found a wonderful, well-paying job to support me and my kid, at least I'm not stressing school anymore. Still tired, but it's mostly a really bad case of the flu. Funny how I had to get better to get sick.
I'm halfway through my Excel tutorial. (Which is taking enormous amounts of time) I'm mentally set to work through small-groups later today (having all my homework done helps.) And I blew through my discussion response to Amy Tan in English class.
That was funny.
There I was, talking about Amy Tan and everyone gives me this huge, "what the hell are you talking about?" stare. And now we're dissecting Amy Tan? Nice.
I kept it short and succinct, deleted all trace of opinion and I think it's going to fly. Big relief. I'm so happy. I could feel myself tensing up when I went there, but I knew it was just old memories and triggers. A little bit of counseling on the issue would probably help.
I'm doing that tomorrow. I might not want to explore Jack's death and all this retraining, but there are some issues I need a little help with. The English thing, because I know I have some triggers there, and why the non-performers in my group bother me so much. Maybe just an ear and potential solutions to my "almost done, now what?" angst.
I put some applications in today. Nothing in my new field. If I'm going to tell people what to do, I might as well get paid. In a few weeks, it'll be the year of the Tiger, and I'm a Tiger. Supposedly being a Tiger in a Tiger year is bad luck. But, since my lucky element is fire, I'll be better off financially.
No clue. Maybe, maybe not. But I did buy a huge brick of radish cake, taro cake and I'm going to make enough gau to choke a horse. Maybe buy some lettuce and oranges. I need the money.
