    Told my students not to drag the microscopes FIVE times before threatening to take points off everyone the next time I heard it.

    Suddenly, everyone's able to pick them up and move them correctly.

    :rolleyes:

    I just laid out all of my expenses, and my income... and they don't line up at all, post-breakup. I need to be making at LEAST double what I make now to survive in the long term. Or take on 2-3 roommates which I really don't want to do.

    I love my job(s), but I make next to nothing working 60+ hours a week doing both. Something's gotta give.

    I don't know what I'm going to do.

    Thanks guys. The weight of making all of these decisions alone is starting to come down on me, and I'm scared out of my mind.

    I am feeling so achey. My chest congestion is also feeling tighter when I cough. I am aching all over. My arms feel like lead.

    And I really can't take off of work either.

    Some douche came into the dog park and started handing out rawhides to random dogs today.

    Uh, no. Bitched them out and they left.

    Wow. Who the hell thinks that is alright to do. Did they say why they were doing handing the food out?

    Nope. Just walked in, started giving random dogs rawhides, including one of mine. I got really upset, went off on them for ALL THE REASONS IT'S A BAD IDEA, and they got all huffy and left. Reported it to the people who run the park.

    What a moron. At the dog park one time some ladies came through the double gates, and left both of them open! Someone's dog got out and started running through traffic. Thankfully they caught the dog, but the women didn't seem to even notice what they did. :rolleyes:

    I mean I did find him but OMG I just about had a heart attack. So so stupid.

    I got my eyebrows waxed on Friday and I've noticed a 'zit' coming up right under my eyebrow. It's pretty big tonight and I'm really, really hoping it's not an abscess or something like that. Ugh.

    And on the recall thing..someone I know had two birds die an hour after giving them a certain food, and then someone else I know fed it as well, and his bird is very very ill right now. The company has offered to 'replace the food' for the birds that died, but hasn't recalled anything. :mad:

    I know 8 or 9 dogs now that have gotten sick, same symptoms same diagnosis, the ONLY thing that is the same is Diamond foods. (Well, other than that they're responsible owners.) Could be a coincidence, but that's one hell of a coincidence.

    Diamond emailed us back just stating their standards type things.

    I'm mad that now my friends have to go through this :(

    I would have had a heart attack, too, and mine's way bigger than that! I'm SO glad you found him. I was about ready to offer ALL the suggestions lol

    I was all excited that tomorrow was my half day.
    And then I remembered that starting this week, I am officially getting more hours... which means tomorrow is actually a full day instead...
    Now I have like, the stupidest schedule of everyone there lol, everyone else has a nice flow where their half day goes into their day off, or they get a long weekend because they have Friday or Monday off... me, no, I just get my Thursday off but I work all day Wednesday and Friday. =P I mean, it's fine, but it's not as cool as what the rest of them get lol.

    And now I have to pack a lunch before I go to bed. :mad:
