Growing up my initials were OP, which was pretty cool in the 80's, right? Then I got married and my initials got updated to match our very texting obsessed era that we now live in (and shake our heads at)...OMG. For those who are texting illiterate, I'll spell it out..."Oh, My God!". I pity the girl whose initials are W.T.F. (I won't spell that one out. You can Google it or email me for an explaination on that one!)

How to be productive when anxiously waiting

So, I was supposed to work today but wasn't needed. Which is totally fine with me because I have this issue I need to tackle ASAP.

I have to contact a Math Division Chair at the local community college to plead my case so I can get credit for a math class I took in 1996 in another state. Not too big of a deal, right?
Except I already went through this math class credit issue in January and thought it was resolved. I took a placement test, twice, so I could prove I already knew that stuff. Thought that pretty much took care of it. Now I have to put in my nursing program application by the first week of May and some guy tells me "you need that college credit". Needless to say, I won't be talking to that guy ever again. So I went and called someone who could give me a better answer to my problem. Let's just call her, "my girl", she told me how I might get this credit, just by contacting the Math Dept. Division Chair.
Amazingly, it was cake getting ahold of him this morning and providing, via email & links, the needed info. Now begins the whole "how to be productive when anxiously waiting" part.

Why am I so anxious about this? Because IF I don't get the credit, I have to take a stupid math class in summer school (you know what a hassle summer school is?), and I'd have to retake a nursing entrance exam, then I can apply for the nursing progam in July. The program starts in August.

Think there will be any spaces left by then? I don't either. Did I mention sitting through a math class for 6 weeks and retaking a nursing exam?? And then, I might have a shot in hell in getting in the program after all my hard work.

All this would drive me to drink if not for the fact that it's way before noon.

My only option is to make sushi rolls. And listen to Celtic Women of Song. What would you do?



Yes, I will be eating all of these. Today. All.

Still no email response from Mr. Division Chair?
I move on to salad.

Orange pepper, avocado, cilantro, carrots, green onions, tomatoes, shredded lettuce & warm white rice. Sprinkled w/sushi salad vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper, sesame seeds and a spoon of pico de gallo to spice it up a bit. I don't know how I discovered I enjoy warm rice & lettuce but it's really good.

Still no email reply?

Write a blog about it all.

And stuff self with amazing, healthy, fresh salad while wishing it was a crusty sourdough, grilled cheese w/bacon sandwich.

I would be so pissed about the class situation.

Can you go over this person's head? Maybe to the assistant dean or some other college bigwig?
