i've been busy, but i should be on more often guys! so, i got my report card...well, if you can call it that? it's all electronic and all. anyways.... intro public speaking - B intro philosophy - B computer concepts - B intro psychology - A my computer grade was fuckin bullshit. i had a 100% in the class, yah? well, the final was fucked. now, before someone is all "you need for take responsibility for yourself!" i do admit when something is my fault. i have no issue admitting when i've done something wrong, or i'm in the wrong. conversely, i defend my correctness to the end. so, back to the story, yah? the finals came round, and it was on something called "myITlab.com" we were given, depending on the question, the screen of either microsoft word 2007 or excel 2007. undenreath the window would be instructions. for example, for excel, it might say "increase the height of row 3 to 37 pixels." now, if you click anywhere on the screen other than the area for enlarge it, even if nothing is affected, it's counted as wrong. god forbid if you double clicked on accident! basically, no one got better than a D. the other Bs were all my bad. this comming semester, i'm doing the rest of my pre-reqs for either respiratory therapy or nursing school. this semester i'm taking A&P I, A&P I lab, chemistry, chemistry lab, and enc1102. i told my boss, wrote him a note, and i put it in the computer, yah? i told him that my classes are at night, so i can no longer close. and i told him that part of me transferring was that i cannot close. so, this week's schedule is good until friday, which i close. but it's ok, because school doesn't start until next week. i'm actually stoked i have 4 days (technically 5 for holiday, even though, due to the dickery of my old and new bosses, it's only 5 hours). now, the next two weeks, i open sunday, yah? which is normal, i've always worked sunday morning. but he has me closing the other days he's given me! fuckin asshole! and he still keeps me at 29.5 hours a week. it's bullshit that i'm reduced to part-time when i'm supposed to be full time. my old fucking boss was an ass by reducing my hours, and now my new boss is doing the same dickery! after i called the third party number, i've received only one phone call from my DM. i was in school though. so, i told him to call me back that thursday before 4pm, because i would be available, yah? well, he never called. i figured he was prolly on thanksgiving vaycay, since it was the week before thanksgiving. anyway, 2 sundays ago, i called the third party line (they act as mediators basically). they told me that coportate did not respond to them at all. so, i asked them for pass this message: "if i do not get word from anyone in corporate, i'm going to have to go to the board of labor, hire an attorney, and go to the news media" they never responded. so, after the new year, i have to go through those steps. wow, sorry for the novel guys! been crazy the past couple of weeks! haha! on another quick note, my aunt bought me a new laptop! 4gb ram. dunno what it means, exactly, but my brother said it's good. vista is awesome!
