I am about to discuss the major sources of stress in my life. Once I've done that, I'm going to go to bed and have a nice little sleep. In the morning I'm going to get up at a reasonable hour and start doing something about some of them.

1. School: I finished my emotions class last week--still have no grade but have done all the work. So that is out of my control. I still have social research, which I'd like to have done in threeweeks. This means I have got to hit the books real hard and stop procrastinating. That's all there is to it. I just despise homework. That's all. But tomorrow is social research day. I have declared it so. Once I've finished this class, I won't have to think about school ever again unless I choose to. It will just be a matter of paperwork to get my degree. The social research class is an incomplete which I have until Sept. 30 to complete.

2. Upcoming trip to NJ to train with new Seeing Eye dog. This is just something that involves a change of routine, being away from home, stress on my body, etc.

3. Job hunt: This one is kind of a moot point right now, but it's on a back burner on low heat. It will get turned up to high after Oct. 15. I'm hanging in in spite of the rejections, which is progress. I didn't do that in 1995. I still intend to file a complaint with the EEOC about what happened in Cincinnati. The child I was to be working with still does not have an appropriate classroom assistant. He does have an assistant. Just not an appropriate one. His mother and I communicate weekly, and it is very sad to me to know what he isn't getting. The EEOC people from Ohio have not called me back, so I will have to callthem again. I have 300 days to file, but we are already approaching the 60th day. I'd rather not wait 300 days to get started. I intend to stand up for what is right, not just for my own sake but for his. In the meantime, I need to find something that pays enough that I can live on. With very few exceptions, it's pretty impractical for me to have a roommate, but it's also real hard to live on $7 or $8 an hour when the rent is $500 a month.

One good thing happened today. My precious kitty slept on the couch with me while I watched my TV shows this morning. That made my day. She has been ignoring me since June.


  • I do still exist

    For those who are still reading (and I do see that a few are still here), I am posting a very, very short summary, like one of those very short…

  • Tired of tests yet?

    Just testing another ap. I think I don't like it, but it does update both blogger and Lj and seems less clunky than the other LJ app. So far the best…

  • testing

    I am testing the IPhone app to see how accessible it is. Supposedly you can do a cut but I think I have to get skilled at selecting a lot of text.…
